Why am I not surprised that the BS is still flying? I shouldn't be. Just more of the same as everything else.
Computer stuff still effed up, IBM has happily charged me for 2 of the wrong hard drives now, still has no clue how to help me, and has not sent me any RMA information yet. Laptop still dead.
Mom annoyed that I am not coming east for Christmas. Apparently it isn't good enough that I'm sending her $$ so *she* can go. Like I'd even want to go see them now, after her piling the guilt on.
The gals at the office just *have* to remind me that I have nothing to do for Christmas or New Years. No, I'm *still* not doing anything, yes it still sucks, no I didn't need to be reminded yet again. Way to go not offering to let me come over. I really do appreciate being hit with the 'oh, that's so sad' stick over and over - I hope you are having a great time with your little games.
And no, the answer about whether I have a date for the Christmas party hasn't changed either.
I'm getting tired of people who seem to think explaining and apologizing for not having time for me is going to magically make it all better. Either you make the time and effort or admit it's just not a priority. Don't try to placate me and make yourselves feel better. I understand where I fall on the priority list and a bunch of empty platitudes aren't going to make me think you any better of a person. Grow a spine.
I'm fine, thanks.
By my hand or in my hand.
