Horrible! Horrible!! Horrible day!!!
I just knew it was going to be one of those days I wish I had called in sick, crawled up in bed all day with my head buried under the pillow waiting for the day to slide by.
First, I woke up a good twenty minutes late.
Dear Diary, what’s the use setting an alarm if I’m never going to hear it?
Jane said she even kicked me when the alarm went off the first time. Trust Jane, rather than gently nudge me to wakefulness, she left the room because my alarm was “too loud”.
Who hears an alarm and doesn’t wake her sister?
Anyhow, the alarm turned out to be the least of my problems. Being late already, I rushed my bath and all, and then spent another five minutes looking for my hair straightener. Of course, I didn’t find it and eventually had to do without.
The silk blouse I had planned to wear suddenly sprouted a suspicious stain on it, forcing me to wear something else… honestly, today reeked of sabotage!
By the time I got to the office, I did not need to be told that Juliet would kill me. One glare from her said it all though.
After our ten 0’clock meeting she asked me to stay back.
“Ruth, I don’t know how many times I’m going to need to remind you that you need to take your job seriously. Your value of time, your dressing…” by the time she got to this point I just tuned off and let her ramble on, nodding and apologizing whenever she paused for breath.
And it just went downhill from there. My day didn’t get any better. Juliet was all over me today. Madam Manager decided that finding fault with everything I did would drive home her point.
Who told her I don’t value time? And listen to her talk of dressing! Maybe if she paid me better I’d dress better.
Diary, I think I need to change jobs. Being an Admin Officer in this rundown family business is no longer working for me. It’s either I change my job or I find some wealthy guy to marry, so I won’t have to worry about money.
This is not a joke, I’m seriously considering it! Juliet doesn’t pay me what I’m worth, bills keep increasing in the house, Jane and I barely get by, plus we still need to send money to Jared for school.
Okay, so maybe the marrying a rich man idea is too far-fetched, after all it’s not like there are tons of them flocking around me, but the job search is clearly on the table.
From today, I’ll dedicate two hours every day to my job hunt
Oh, don’t mock me yet! This is a plan I’ll stick to, just watch and see.
