For the most part I like my job. I like what I do. I like my boss. I like my hours. I like the people I deal with… most of the time. Unfortunately, this week (and last week too actually) is one of those times when everything about my job frustrates me.
The folks I have to deal with on a daily basis have just been driving me crazy. It seems like nothing has been going right at work. People cancelling at the last minute. People showing up WAY before they are supposed to. People not knowing that the computer they are sitting in front of isn’t actually on. People getting irritated over a once a year piano tuning. People getting irritated over something that is happening BEFORE their class. The list goes on and on.
I really need a vacation. Like REALLY need a vacation. I need a couple days of not going to work on days that I normally go to work. I need a couple days of not having to set an alarm. I need a couple extra days of not being here. But that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. Unfortunately there is a 6 month probationary period here, during which you cannot take PTO or sick time. And since when I went full time in April it was a “new job,” the six months started then. So I cannot take any PTO or sick time until after October 1.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!?!
So that is just making me even MORE frustrated. I know there is a 3 day weekend coming up for Labor Day, but that is still over a month away. I just need a break and I can’t take one.
