Under the weather......
Stupefication and sheer amazement at how you can tell someone something 10 times, in 10 different ways and they go ahead and do something really stupid.........
Utter astonshiment at trying to do a good thing for the people you work for have them repay you with not even scorn, but indifference.
Being reminded of something I already knew, that not every one gets promoted on merit.
So not feeling good again, I went to bed at 7:30 pm and slept for 11 and a half hours. The S.O. was suprised to find me asleep when she came home.
Yesterday made me think of the old Bill Murray movie "Meatballs". There is a scene where in the middle of the big competition with the super swank Camp Mohawk (Murray plays an oddball camp counselor) he gives a speech to the disheartened campers about tomorrows games:
And even if we win, if we win, HAH! Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man woman and child joined hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with the guys from Mohawk because they've got all the money! It just doesn't matter if we win or if we lose. IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER!
Rest of group: IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER! IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER...
It just does not matter............and that is really sad.
I need a change.
