In response to a confession. Who says she was suicidal or considering taking her own life? I said she had a breakdown of sorts, but it certainly wasn't anything major... she IS whining. I find it very interesting that she managed to get a leave of absence during the busiest time of year when EVERYONE wants time off and now nobody can take it because the newest employee (3 months at her job) is suddenly off because she can't handle reality? and now she's on a beach in FL and away from our crappy winter weather. Seems she just figured out how to beat the system.

Today's catchphrase: "What is happening?"... Things aren't printing. Things won't ctr-v or ctr-c for me. My print driver is magically gone. The print preview is 12 pages and only 1 page comes out of the printer. My computer is not cooperating with all the shit I'm trying to do today.

Could you imagine being suicidal and seriously considering taking your own life, and then to have someone call you a whiner because you've decided to try to get help? I dunno man. I'm not a religious person, but you know what they say. God doesn't even judge you until you're dead. What makes YOU qualified?

Well THIS is awesome. My work laptop keeps restarting on its own. It does this about once every minute and I can't keep it on long enough to send an email to tech support. This is going to make Monday extra fun. :P

I called out of work yesterday on bereavement leave because I had to meet with the funeral home people to get my mom's funeral organized. Yet my company still insisted I take my laptop and submit some documents for review. I hate that I can't even take a day off to grieve and catch a breath. Our work a holic society can suck it.

I called CPS today. The student is not on my caseload, but this is the second time he has had huge, unexplained bruises that he tries to hide. He said he got the bruises from punching a wall, but the bruises aren't on his knuckles. He's left handed, and the first time he had a bruise it was on his right hand. He has behavior problems, and no one seems to put two and two together that it might be because of his home life. When I told his case manager and his classroom teacher, they weren't fazed at all. No one seems to have any compassion for this kid. The kids who need love the most ask for it in the most unloving ways. I know his behavior issues are serious, but we are adults. It's our job to care for these children. I hope he is okay over the weekend.

And I had to write an apology email to someone in the community in case we offended them at one of our events. Ugh, I don't feel like I'm cut out for this job most of the time.

Work is getting more intense with Director leaving soon and I'll assume a lot of her responsibilities even though I don't feel ready for a mgmt role right now. The show must go on. In reality, I'm just trying to survive. I hate that I'm going back to emotional eating during times of huge stressors and feeling overwhelmed.

In response to a confession. I'm a millennial. Don't cry for us. It's a crapshoot finding decent workers my age. Some are awesome, but many are whiny and entitled. The ones who are willing to learn and work are great, but a lot (A LOT) act like they're in some kind of extended adolescence. I've had a handful of boomer-age coworkers who were bad, but the ones my age are in a league of their own.

In response to a confession. I work in the medical field and am an older millennial. Some of my fellow millennials are good, but most are bad, unfortunately. They're immature, post insanely inappropriate stuff on Facebook (violating HIPAA), call in sick and then slip up and admit they had a hangover, quit by not showing up one day, hide in the bathroom to avoid tough cases, bash the boss on social media, take selfies in patient areas, etc. I'm talking about college educated grown ups. We deserve the criticism, just like boomers do for screwing up the world for this generation.
