............can't stand when I say something, do something, show up, or just be there and a person looks at me like I have two heads. I don't understand it, it just ticks me off. You know the look? Furrowed brow, frown line overexaggerated, eyebrows going up and down. I've actually said to the offender, "why are you looking at me like I have 2 heads? Was what I asked so very odd that you have to make that expression?" uff da....................

My vent for today is work-related. My co-worker and I have been after our general manager for almost 3 weeks to get us a proper mop and bucket for cleaning after we break down our breakfast bar in the AM. Right now we are having to use a swiffer pole and put old cleaning cloths on it. It is maing both of us feel so tired after we get done for the day. Our GM keeps saying she will get one, but she hasn't yet. It's enough to drive someone batty.

If she doesn't have them there tomorrow, we are and we're going to the owners of the hotel also - come to find out, they aren't too happy with the way she has been doing things. This is the first time someone other than the owners have had any managerial say in the hotel, and they are beginning to regret letting her have it. But she's under contract, so they can't do anything about it until November, which is when her contract comes up for renegotiation.

Youngest daughter came home with a cold about a week ago and in spite of frequent hand washing, doing doorknobs and light switches with disinfectant taking echinacea and drinking tons of fluid I feel like I'm getting it. DANG IT ALL!
