The Fruits of My Labor

Today when I got to work there was an invitation in my mailbox telling me that I had a dinner this evening to go to since I'm such a good little worker. Yee haw. You all know how I looooove to be around a bunch of people, right? And how I loooooove eating in front of others? Fun fun!

I was a nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. And to make it really good, I missed my exit to the restaurant and a 10 minute journey took me 35. I couldn't fight my way out of a wet paper bag. I was in tears by the time I got to the damn place.

After dinner I had to go back to work to finish my shift. But it was only an hour so that wasn't too bad. I'd rather eat pasta in front of people than work so I'm not complaining about the 2.5 hour dinner.

Zube Girl (i think it was her) did a post awhile back grouching about her husband not answering his cell phone. That is one of my pet peeves also. I don't call Sweety to "check up" on him but to rather put my mind at ease and know that he's not laying dead in a ditch somewhere. Maybe I can buy him a beeper that shocks his ass whenever I call him...

He is still not answering his phone. I know he gets done bowling at 9:30 so he's had 1.5 hours to call me back. He's probably drinking beer at the bowling alley. Gee, this new schedule is working out great! It's so nice to see him when I get home from work!

I'm going to bed and if he wakes me up when he comes in I will pull all of his leg hair off.

I hate those dinners. And I really hate it when they hand out tote bags to reward the good little workers. I'm always like, FU, you think I don't know this is all because you're too cheap to give anyone a raise?

Give em hell, Chickie!!! (lol)

Be sure to pull the leg hair out one at a time. And start behind the knees.

Zube Girl said...

Yep, it was me. I HATE that! Hate, hate, hate.

I always get lost, too. No matter how good the directions are.

Nice candid shot. Good idea with the toothbrush. Happy HNT.

Anne Arkham - The best part was when my name was called first and I didn't hear because I wasn't expecting to be first. So everyone was really looking at me like I was a doofus when I went to get my "treat".

Kyuball - I may have to patent this.

Mollynormal - I think there's a lot of closet homosexuality with bowlers. All the touching and high fiving and pats to each other when they do good. I tried to bring up this at a bowling game and was quickly shunned.

OOLOTH - Thank you! I will!

Bekah - I prefer big handfuls that make a velcro-like sound when you pull them out. I'm more instant gratification sometimes.

Zube Girl - I live 25 miles from work - one night it took me 3.5 hours to get home.

Robmcj - Thank you! It's the one time I can multitask.

If I'm a good worker, give me MONEY. Dinner is nice but it doesn't last. It is good, however, to be recognized for doing a good job.

So does Sweety have any leg hair left?

Chickie said...

MCB - As long as they're not having me answer the phone, I don't care what I'm doing! I did get a better raise than most when reviews were don so I'm not bitching...

Sweety had a good enough excuse that no torture was needed. I do think he'll answer his phone in the future though.

Sasha said...

ouch. that'll hurt!

oh good. you didn't do it. *whew for sweety*

Pulling all of his leghair off isn't nearly a cruel enough punishment. I'm glad he had a good excuse so he's off the hook this time, but whenever men don't answer their phones without any sort of a decent reasons they deserve to be tortured. Severely. Especially because it sends me into anaphalactic shock every time I don't hear anything.

Chickie said...

Lisa - I always assume that he's in the hospital or something. Luckily this sort of thing is a rare occurance.

Dirk the Feeble said...

Pulling off a man's leg-hair is no excuse for anything whatsoever, that's just mean.

Armaedes - Isn't it better than having your eye poked?
