Working ot is cool because your being paid extra for time you could be out spending money.

At least that's how I justify it to myself when I have that long discussion with myself where I ask myself if this is the day that I take an AK-47 to work LOL.

;)

Yesterday was one of those days. I was ready to throw the damn phone through the wall and leave.

And then I remembered that my kids like to eat...

I suppose the solution would be to get myself fired and then collect 99 weeks of unemployment, plus the additional 26 the 'representative' from Illinois wants to tag onto that.

Brooke: Don't allow yourself to lose your cool. As hard as it might be, it's much better to have gainful employment. I am seriously underemployed right now but have held back from collecting unemployment because I don't want free stuff or to have to look for another job. I would
prefer that the economy improve enough to keep our small business active. A high tide rises all boats.

I know, I know... I feel 'ya.

It's just that, as a nurse aide, the call lights ring to my phone and the mgt. decided that 21 patients to ONE (me) aide was sufficient. Not only do they expect me to accomplish certain tasks but LITERALLY the call phone rang before I could even put it in my pocket from the last call.

It is a situation that I can in NO WAY provide even ADEQUATE patient care, let alone good care.

Ugh.`
