this is going to be suck

Birthdays are a big deal to me--specifically MY birthday. Some people don't want any attention, and don't want anyone to notice them, and don't really want to celebrate. Not me. Bring on the parties! Shower me with affection! Tell me how much you like me! I’ve been pretty bummed all week thinking about how quiet this birthday is going to be—no party, no lunch with the ladies, no balloons at the office, nothing. And then this morning I started feeling kind of sick on my way to work, and I had to leave my meeting this morning because I started throwing up. Good times. Thankfully, my boss came out to my desk right after and asked if everything was okay, and when I told her that I wasn’t feeling well and that I was throwing up, she felt my forehead and said, “well, you don’t have a fever, so you aren’t contagious, so you can stay at your desk and get your work done.” Really? Thanks for that. This is my new favorite way to spend the day before my birthday. Seriously. This is going to be suck.

Ok, seriously, why do you work there??? There has to be SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE else you could find a job. And, closer than a 40 minute commute. And, you need to assert some authority. Go in there and tell her you don't feel well and that you are going home. She can't make you stay. And, if she's mad, that's her deal, not yours. Go home.

Oh, and happy birthday eve!!! I have some fabulous stuff to send you (based on your request e-mail - very funny and persuasive) and I will send it Monday - better late than never right???

Go home!!!

Happy Early Birthday!!! You will get part of your present next week because I am slow at getting things in the mail--sorry in advance. That way it will be a week long birthday which really are the best kind.

And your job sucketh. Your boss is a crazy person. Seriously.
