Last week, I was on a virtual vacation. Let me explain.
I actually had planned on going on a real vacation. Asked for time off; time off was granted. Found a hotel room in a nearby city where hubbie and I were to spend several days. Not too far; not too near. And then my work canceled my vacation because other people, many of them, were taking half-days. Something about school starting and people wanting to transition with their kids. My vacation was revoked.
And so I was a bit pissy about the whole thing. I was thinking about calling in sick all week, but I chose not to. Instead I went to work and had the attitude, "Don't bother me; I am on vacation." Childish, I know, but I was supposed to be on vacation.
And you know what, the tactic did not work. I did not get a light sunburn. I did not get to go to work without spending an hour getting ready, I could not stay out late, and I did not get much reading done while at work.
And now I am catching up from my vacation – that's why I did not post earlier today. I was playing catch-up. Completely idiotic. I mean, one would think they would just let me take the time off. Now, I got paid for doing little last week, and I was pissed about it.
Lesson learned: give people time off when you have agreed to it. It is not like I am an integral part of this organization. Heck, better not say that too loud, or I will be looking for another job.
Crap. Guess I better catch up and pretend I love it here.
What? No, I’m Totally Not Killing Them
