My butt triumphs over evil!

So I’m allowed to go. Twice a week. But have to check in every Monday to be sure the nice person who is willing to do next of nothing for and hour will not be so overwhelmed that the company spirals into bankruptcy. I am happy, but it still irks me (can you tell?). We actually had a meeting about it – like 10 minutes ago. I wanted to say that I thought this was ridiculous, but in the end, I’m getting what I want so I should just shut up.

Since I am a Scardy Snark (do you like that! No? well no one else came up with anything) this will be my final word on this situation. All I want to say is that there was no ‘sure, no problem, it’s no big deal’ but the exact opposite like, ‘you better appreciate this, this is HUGE, but we are willing complicate everything so you can go lift heavy things.’

I am aware people are doing me a favor, but since when is that so crazy to expect? Without a major guilt trip attached. I do shit like that everyday for numerous people. I suppose it’s the openendedness of the request. Two hours a week…FOREVER AND EVER. Oh, except if someone is on vacation, or sick, or doesn’t feel like it (seriously, they said that).

Oh, I forgot to tell you my lame ass contribution to the "blog fear" post. You know how if you are afraid to go outside of your personal space you are "agoraphobic"? Well, I thought that, if you are afraid to let information out of your personal space via your blog, you could be "blogoraphobic".

*ducks to dodge flying tomatos*

Better than what J came up with (and would not type into the comments because he is lame) "fear of being Blouted"...like outed...as in being in the blog closet. He thinks it's good. It sounds too much like bloated. Which, strangely enough, I also have a fear of.

How about "promblogated" instead of "promulgated"? Bwah ha ha, I'm so clever.

Except not.

Hey nacho,

Thanks for the posting on my "blog". I'm glad you got what you wanted, even if it is such a "huge deal"!

Ahhhhh, beauracracy, you gotta love it! I think no matter where you go in the "real world," there are going to be organizations/people to which the normal rules of common sense and common politeness (little lunch-break favors included) do not apply.
