Just a rant here…about my pissy day.
Feel free to ignore it if you wish.
First, my truck is in the shop so I had to drop my hubby off at work. I went to Barnes and Noble to have a Starbucks cappacino and browse the books. So far, so good. I call my hubby at the office to see if he needs the car- he says “well, you’ve got your day cut out for you- Mom (his mom) is on her way to the emergency room- she is having trouble with her eye” (long story)
Basically, whenever she doesn’t feel like she’s getting enough attention, she calls an ambulance to get her in her apartment complex- stretcher and all. (couple of times a month) She enjoys the attention, etc. (uses it like a cab service) Don’t ask…
So I head over to the ER (hubby can’t go)…I get her, bring her to the eye doctor. We wait. And wait. And wait some more. Finally, TWO HOURS into our wait, they call her in. Now, I love my mother in law, but she just sat there, talking constantly at me the whole time. I had a headache and just wanted to sit quietly, but she had to go on and on about family business LOUDLY so the whole waiting room could hear for the whole two hours. Then she gets annoyed because I don’t want to go in the room with her (I get totally grossed out about eyes…Besides, I got the play by play in great detail later).
So we head for home- the doc gives her a prescription for eye drops. (She lives about 40 minutes away). She wants to wait in the car while I go in the drugstore (she only lives about 1/4 mile away…didn’t want me to drop her off). I go in, give them the script. I wait…and wait…and frigging WAIT!! FINALLY (and this is a really small drug store…they might do ten prescriptions an hour, but I doubt it) I ask how much longer it will be. The bitch behind the counter says “yours is next- these things take a while, you know!” (NEXT?? there was no one in the pharmacy but me)
It was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. I look at this rude bitch, and I said “As a matter of fact, I know exactly how long it takes. I worked in a pharmacy for 7 FRIGGIN’ YEARS. I know it does not take half an hour to put a label on a bottle of eye drops.”
(A retail pharmacy normally does the scripts first for the people who are waiting)
(I wanted to add that they worked like old people fuck- slow and sloppy- but I resisted…it wasn’t easy)
So (funny how it didn’t take too long after that) I get the drops, pay and go out to the car. MIL is bitchy now because she had to wait (I offered to drive her home first). I finally dropped her off and practically peeled out leaving I was so aggrivated (I had not eaten since about 9am- this was at about 2:30). I was starving, (I also have blood sugar trouble and was getting lightheaded from it), pissy and just plain mad at the world. So that’s my rant- thanks for reading- have a nice day.
On the upside, I’ve eaten, feel a bit better and am getting over it.
Anyone else have a shitty day?
PS- I’m not a whiner- I rarely if ever have really bad days that I can’t cope with. This just happened to be one.
