I should have stayed in bed!

Ever have "one of those days"?  Today, I am having one! It started with the alarm being set for the wrong time. I woke up half way between when I was supposed to be up, and when the alarm was going to go off. I raced through getting ready and was only about 5 minutes late for work.

Then one of our maintenance guys really wanted to impress me with his new phone-while I was trying to work on the mountain of things I need to get done by next Wednesday. I didn't want to be rude and ignore him, because he gets his feelings hurt really easily, but at the same time, my mind was screaming over how much work I had to do!

I had issues with the copier all day, and I sent out a mass email for youth group tonight telling everyone it was  at the church, when it's really at someone's house on a lake and they are going swimming and tubing! So, I had to quickly fix that boo boo.

Then I get home to find my sweet, lovely puppy has chewed through the power cord to my laptop because when Adam left for work, he left her out of her crate! Then I called Ebay about the issue with the "too good to be true" second chance offers since I hadn't heard anything from the seller or gotten my items.  I talked to 2 regular phone operators and a "manager". All three of them kept talking over me while I was talking, and they said I have to wait til the 28th to get my money back. They said the seller (who by the way, isn't even a registered Ebay user anymore) has that long to get my money back to me or to send me the items.

It turns out that the seller "sold" the same items to several people. There were at least 6 negative feedback comments that came in yesterday for this seller-most with the same relish tray and coffee pot as their items that they paid for and never received. I guess the saying, "If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is" proved to be true this time-bummer! I was soo hoping to get them for the ridiculously low prices I paid for them!

After all that, I burned my hand making dinner-ugh! It's not been a good day! Tomorrow is another day...and it's only a partial day at work!! The entire staff is being taken to a Detroit Tiger's game!! I can't wait!!! I hope it's a good game!

Hope you are having a better day than I am!!

  1. Oh lovely, what a sh*tty day you had! I truly hope that the week has improved for you. You had me laughing at the bit about your maintenance guy having to show you everything about his phone. I hate when you get caught in those types of situations. You don't want to be mean, but sheesh it's annoying!!! Kel :)
