I've had a crappy week

Anyone else having a crappy week?  It seems to be going around, at least among the people I know.  I don't want to go into details right now (it's a long story), but I'm so glad it's Friday.

Mine has to do with money too. Specifically money that I could be making but am not because someone apparently doesn't like me. I got an email Monday morning saying I was no longer needed to work the gate at the football games, after ten or so years of doing it. No explanation. Just essentially saying I was fired. After asking, I was told that it was becaused I expressed an opinion about a new accounting system, which I did not, and that I was rude to an administrator, which I was not. My request for a meeting with this person was ignored. It was only after my principal called him that he replied. He said he'll come meet with me next Wednesday, a full week and a half after the first email. I'm pretty ticked. I don't know what I did and I'm not working the game tonight and should be. I have colleagues who are working tonight and I'm wondering if they'll get some inside information. There was another woman there who was rude to a lot of people and if you described her, you'd also be describing me so I really think someone got us mixed up.

Lots of other crappy stuff has happened this week, but that's the big thing. It's thousands of dollars over the years I could potentially make that I won't be.

I hope You get your money, Heather. It sucks having to fight with people.

since we are venting I will just add that sis got a new dog and since she works full time guess who is taking care of her?? my mom is 89 and she cant do it.. The dog is so well behaved and she just got here on weekend.. I have so far let the dog out and fed her and gave her treats.. I also have to watch dog when people come into the house as she gets spooked and nervous because she is adjusting.. I didnt sign up for this and yes I am still looking for work and an apt.. Its sickening out there with everything..

Yes; others have it worse and I cant complain as I count my blessings but I thought I would chime in and vent with you guys.

Oh; I spend all of my pension budget money for the month and now what?? Ha ha.. I spent to much at an Italian festival last week so now I either have to find free stuff this weekend or sit at home.. Today I went to free movie at library but the movie was awful so I left. (lol).... well beggars cant be choosers..

I was watching Dr.Oz this morning and Goldie Hawn was on and she was saying that a graditude journal is good when we are feeling down. she is so right .. Of course she has millions but that is another story.

Good Day

YES...mine has been crappy..involving money..or I should say money that IS still owed to me...well I have been going back and forth in a battle of e-mails with this person since last week!!! This is a long story BUT the ending is good BUT not great because I still will not be getting what is all owed to me but good because I will be getting back something and PLUS it will all be over once  and for all!! It's amazing how quickly someone shapes up when you mention the Dept of Labor...well as soon as I mentioned that...THEN he wanted to negotiate.....man...this is the 2nd time since I've been working from home that I had ever had to deal with this.The 1st time, this one company didn't pay all of us contractors...I had quit awhile back and was still waiting for 1 more check when the company ended up letting go those contractors who were still there...it was a huge mess!Lots of angry people...we finally got paid ONLY because a group of us was banding together to file a class action suit or at least see what we could do to make the company pay...man that employer was getting an attitude with all of us!!! He really showed his true colors...well we all got paid but that was an experience that I didn't want to have to go through again and of course I almost had too...well we'll see by next week if I have to go through that again because he stated that he sent the check out to me and I should get it by next week.....yeah but talk about a bad week!!

Well it could be worse...I mean there is always someone out there worse off then us...I have my health,all my limbs,I'm blessed...BUT still no one messes with my money!!

I don't know that I've had a bad week per se, but I've been irritable and on edge through most of it.

I think I'm going to go shopping later.  I want a cute new top for my brother's b-day dinner next weekend.  I'm usually tight with my money, but I think I may just splurge.
