This and That

Work was OK today. The majority of the people I care for are amazing humans living with sickness and disability in the best way they know how. And then there are the ones that make me really not like my job. Does that sound harsh? Sometimes I think how fun it would be to win the lottery and show up at work and see how much I could get away with before I got fired. Nothing mean and not anything that would hurt anyone. Having a few sips out of a liquor cabinet. Making myself a pound of bacon and eating it.  Having a nap. Sitting down to watch TV. Having a bath. Remember that I am in a union and getting fired is not easy. There would be meetings with shop stewards (that I would not show up for) and repeated warnings. I could do a whole series of fucked up things and oh, it would be fun!

I got my Flu shot yesterday and it is the only time I have ever felt like shit afterwards. The shot itself really hurt and now my arm is very sore and I feel all Flu-lite. Oh, well. Bed can be early.

New show on Netflix, Master of None. So far, loving it. But Netflix shows are pretty great.

  1. I agree, Netflix shows are great. I’ll have to check out Master of None.

    Have a bath?!? Ha! You are a riot.

  2. I don’t like the flu vaccine so I don’t get it. Sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well, Birdie.

    As far as not liking one’s job due to a few people it can happen. My friend’s mother, who is 91, is living in a senior’s residence and one of the men there can get pretty violent. He has kicked the staff on numerous occasions and the bruises he can give!

  3. So not harsh. I don’t hate diabetics but when I see someone goin’ on 400 lbs groaning around on a scooter at the grocery store buying freezer dinners, ice cream, chips, dip, and beer while the bandage around their purple calf and shin shimmies down to their bloated ankles I get a bit…. peeved. In this day and age, you can’t really claim ignorance, there is responsibility to be had for your health! And the toll on the public’s wallet because so many people take that route, opt for the easiest and also one of the more difficult ways to cope…. Ugh, the pain they bring on themselves! And I’ve simmered. Vent done.

    Hope your flu shot symptoms subside quickly 🙂 Baby Bananaface gets his 2nd round top o’ the month and then I guess the hubs and I are up….. Hurrumph.

    So true! I think if you’re in a line of work where you are advocating or caring for someone, there will be wonderful people, and there will always be shitheads.
