I honestly don’t know if I should laugh or cry about this week. I don’t know if there is something in the air or what, but damn.
Let me give you a run-down:
- After being encouraged to apply for the CIO position at work, I am not experienced enough. I’m good enough to back fill the interim guy. I’m good enough to be the bad guy in a meeting. I’m good enough to make sure shit gets done. But lead? You know, we want someone more experienced…….as told to me by a guy at least 10 years my junior and who does not have my resume. Fuck him and the pat on my head.
- The foster kid got suspended. And in the midst of it all, I found my own kid surrendering to peer pressure and choosing that over compassion. Hey, nothing like failing twice – once with the foster kid and then with my own kid. Stellar parenting week for me.
- …….yeah, screw more than two …..those are enough…..
I’ll skip the sexist language I have had to endure.
I’ll skip the other bullshit.
The week has felt like a month.
Today can fuck off – as can tomorrow.
The answer is, I cry…….
