If one more motherfucker tells me that they already gave me a document that they did NOT give to me, I'm gonna go fucking postal.

Honestly speaking, are you coasting at work? Can you offer any tips on how I can do that. I'm serious. TIA. <3

Thank you so much, Stormyweather. Those sound great. I like your approach. Will definitely have to try your tactics to help diffuse the situation. Thanks again!

In response to a confession. First day back and I miss my old teammate. We both started 3 years ago with the org. Not only was so she a huge emotional support, but she was buffer between myself and another coworker that always seems to trigger me with her prying personal questions. She's from Australia and doesn't seem to be tactful at all. Today when talking about our hours she asked if I was working another PT job, I simply said no. She looked shocked and asked if I was just chilling with the rest of my time. I pushed back and said, No, I'm choosing to take time away to focus on my health. If only you knew what I've been working on. I didn't want to share how tough it's been for my mental health this past year because she's very nosy. She was the one that randomly asked if I had a boyfriend yet. UGH, she's the only one my team, so I need to be ok with working with her.

We get our employee calendars on Monday and I'm dying to see if we still get our allotted 8 1/2 paid holidays. This year, we only got 7 1/2 because 4th of July was a Saturday. This year, Christmas is a Saturday and 4th of July is a Sunday. If they were decent, they'd give us the Monday after off, but they aren't decent. Even though our employee handbook states that we get "8 1/2 paid holidays annually". My CWs and I all vowed to bring it up to HR if we end up getting screwed because it's really stupid to say one thing in the handbook if you aren't going to deliver on it.

In response to a confession. You should see the comments about our school district. Our state has mandated that all schools must offer an in-person option. So any kid who wants to go to school can. This may also be the reason our state has some of the highest COVID numbers in the world, but I digress. But now they are complaining that forcing kids to wear a mask is ridiculous. They truly think it should just be business as usual. BTW, these are the same parents who had no problem with any part of the dress code limiting short length, tank tops, etc. But masks apparently cross the line. Our district pretty much got rid of the dress code last year, thank God, and these folks lost their mind over that. Now they're losing their minds over requiring a mask.

Comment from a parent on our union social media- "This is abhorrent. Young kids should be given choice to back in school. You have lost the focus on children and are so far far away from doing the right thing at this point. Shame on you." Imagine if we spoke about parents this way, said their views were abhorrent, that they didn't care about their children, and told them "Shame on you!" It can and will never happen, yet we continue to take this kind of abuse. I can't even reply. I try not to let it get to me. It's just a handful of parents that are verbally abusive like this, but they attack us constantly. I am getting better at brushing it off, but it isn't easy. All we want is to keep our students and community safe. Thank you for letting me vent.

I am so effing frustrated with my coworker. I spent literally 3 hours at work yesterday making a complex formula sheet for a bill of materials while she was playing on her phone and complaining about how bored she was. When I asked if she could help me with the sheets, she said "Oh, well, I'm not very good at those, so you should probably do them". She then complains I never let her learn new things. She's such a lazy, entitled little brat and I hope to God she quits this spring when her kid's born.

I am much more calm today. I still have an overwhelming amount of work, but it's like this every year. I just need to go step by step and remember that when people bring their shit in late, it is not required of me to bend over backward and kill myself trying to get their shit filed on time. Go slow, make sure shit's right. And if something gets filed late? Oh effing well.

So. It might be an easier solution for me to just commit suicide than to try to figure out the new payroll tax bullshit just signed into law. I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't know if I can handle this without some sort of medical intervention to keep me from having a panic attack, but I know full well I won't be able to actually work while medicated. I can't breathe. I have the month of January to learn all of this, make sure it's right, prepare all the normal tax forms (which are now completely different and require .. I don't even know how much more work because I don't understand this yet), prepare 800+ W2's, 200+1099's, all of my monthly and quarterly financials, AND any annual work that comes in. I can't breathe. And it's just me. There's no one to help me with this. Every fucking year I'm left twisting in the wind with all this work, but this? I don't think I can do this. I don't even know where to start.
