Hello again!! Sorry for not writing sooner. I’ve had a few things going on over the past couple days. Today and Thursday were probably the worst to be honest. Thursday is one of my two days off. So technically it’s my Sunday. It’s also the only day I have off with my boyfriend. So it’s usually the one day a week that we have to get everything done together that we need to, as well as to spend time together, so basically two birds one stone. So anyways, why Thursday was the worst…
On Thursday Nick had to go to the Optometrist at around 1520, so we were planning on getting a few things done before his appointment. Wednesday afternoon, we get contacted by his mom, who’s bugging us yet again about taking his ferret to my stepmom’s. So we finally just said “Screw it, we’ll do it tomorrow.” So I got in touch with my stepmom, let her know what was going on, and she was really cool about it and just said “Ok bring her by when you can.” Originally we were planning on going over there (stepmom lives in Cashmere, WA by the way) in the morning before Nick’s appointment, but since he had to a full 12-hour shift and didn’t get home until around 0600, we slept through the alarms, and were a little late to the Optometry appointment. Then we had to drive from Seattle down to Puyallup to get his ferret and all of her things, then start to head towards the pass. We had to stop at a gas station to fill up his car and to out air in the rear passenger tire that has been slowly deflating. We get about halfway to my stepmom’s, I’m driving, and watching the digital display for his tire pressures, and all of a sudden the one tire’s pressure goes from 26 to 4 to 0!!! Immediately, I just go “Oh shit!” and turn the blinkers on so I can pull over to the side of the road. Nick is in the passenger seat, hears my exclamation and asks what’s going on. I tell him and he starts saying “Oh that can’t be right” before getting out of the car, looking at the tire, and goes “Uh babe, the tire is completely flat.” I face palmed. This is what happens when you don’t believe the person that’s driving and watching the display change. Anyways, so he gets out the jack and spare tire and starts to change it out. Just after he gets done putting the lug nuts back on, we hear something and look up, and there’s a State Trooper pulling up behind us. Apparently someone who passed us called in a disabled vehicle, so dispatch told him to come check on us. Nice guy though (cute butt too lol). We explain what happened, where we were going, and answered every other question the officer had for us. After a couple minutes, he got back into his SUV and took off. We went the rest of the way (about an hour and a half) driving between 50 and 55 MPH with the hazard lights on, and people passing us giving us dirty looks. We finally get to my stepmom’s around 2240 (we left around 1930 by the way, and should have gotten there around 2130 at the latest). We got everything set up, said our goodbye’s and headed out. Stopped at a 24 hour Wal-Mart, got some tire patch stuff for a temporary fix, took care of that at a gas station down the street, got food, then headed back here. We didn’t get home until around 0500. It was ridiculous.
Today was just rough at work. There was a Kenny Chesney concert today in Seattle. I love Kenny, I really do. The only concert I’ve ever been to was a Kenny Chesney concert that my mom, sister, and I went to together. With where I work, we’re in an office on the first floor of a King County parking garage. There’s a company that will “rent” out the top floor of our garage so that people can pay for parking during certain events. Well, today was one of those days unfortunately. By the time I got to work, the garage already had a decent number of concert attendees, most of them already drinking. So when I left the office to go do a patrol of the garage, the Supervisor lady stopped me and asked for help. Apparently there were several things going on and nobody wanted to listen to her. So she called on the security chick that she’s on good terms with lol. First people I had to deal with was a couple who decided that it was a good idea to open their beers in their car, while parked on government property. SMH. So I had to tell them to dump the open containers before I got the police involved. They complied. The next group was up on the top floor. There were about 6 of them, and they decided they were going to start taking selfies, with their open beer cans, and just chill outside their vehicles in the sun. I don’t care if they want to chill in the sun and take pictures, but not with alcohol. So had to make them dump their beer too. Kind of a waste of alcohol, but it had to be done. I really hate stupid people.
Due to the past few days, and all of the shit I’ve had to deal with, while I’m typing this out, I’ve got my own open beer sitting next to me. Only difference is that I’m at home, not in a public place where alcohol isn’t allowed. I don’t know whether I want to scream with frustration, or just quit my job. I’m so sick and tired of dealing with this stupid shit. But I need my job so I can pay my bills… at least until my boyfriend is able to finish flight school. Once he gets his pilots license and starts to make more than I do in a week, I think I’ll quit my job for a little while and just relax and take care of things here at home.
