Revelation at 3:50: People suck.

The receptionist called in sick. Now, I'm mostly peeved because this is the ONE day of the month I needed to be completely focused on my job and not the phones. So, I wasn't able to bill my stuff. Which means tomorrow is going to be HECTIC. I leave at 2:00 to a dentist appointment (*whimpers*) and I was supposed to be helping at our sister facility all day until then. (Don't even get me started on THAT.) And now I'll be lucky if I finish my stuff before I have to leave tomorrow. GRRRRRRRRRR.

But that's not why I'm posting. That's just me venting.

So, I'm at the receptionist's fish bowl and this guy walks in. 50s, protruding gut, and a LOUSY disposition.

Him: I need to put money into my mother's trust account.
Me: I'm sorry sir, but the person who handles the trust accounts is currently at lunch.
Him: *Frowns* And you're telling me no one else can do that?
Me: Our business office manager would be the other person, but unfortunately, she's at lunch. Were you leaving or will you be visiting for awhile? [Accounts payable person] will be back in a half an hour.
Him: *Huffs* So, I walked all the way over here from the 500 hall (it's a two-minute walk, if that) to get down here just for you to tell me that I have to go back to visit and then walk back over here again later?
Me: *Opens mouth, though is not quite sure what is going to come out, because wow, just... wow.
Him: *Walks out muttering before I can find the words I was at a loss with.*

Okay, over-weight or not, you've GOT to be kidding me. Five bucks says he's the guy that drives around for ten minutes finding that magic parking spot two steps away from the store door.

Maybe the walk would do you good, pal. Ahem.

  • 40 books in one year... so close!

    I really tried to get the 50 books read in one year goal... but yeah, 2009 was pretty busy mostly sucking. (Though, yes, some fabulous things did…

  • Poor Dresden

    Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher. It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well…

  • Barney via Dr. Horrible music video!

    If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this! Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.
