I don’t even want to get into it except to say that I spent the most egregious afternoon of my professional career today.
I’m not going to blog about work because I need my job, but let’s say that I was hired to take care of horses. My duties include keeping them fed, watered, and free from shit. And then I was told nothing else about it.
Then, imagine that, after eight years, I discovered that most people remove the horses from the stalls before shoveling the shit out with a shovel instead of attempting to dodge the horse while scooping it out by hand.
Y’all, I feel hopeless. I feel like I have just both fucked my life up beyond repair and been played for a fool. And I just can’t see how to fix this.
I have half a mind to just not get on that plane tomorrow, but I would miss my dog.
I’m just saying, though, I can understand why people do it, just walk away from their lives.
I would rather do anything else in the world than feel like I was being made an ass of every damn day.
Y’all, I think I’d be an asset to anyone who knew what to do with me. I’m bright. I learn things quickly. I’m curious. People feel at ease around me and I put off an aura of confidence. I speak well in public. I write well. I think I’m a good employee. I don’t sew dissent around the office. I work hard.
But god damn, I feel so low. I can’t even tell you.
Maybe I’ll just go to bed.
I’m tired of listening to myself complain about this.
This just sucks so much.
