F****** Construction

Today has not been a good morning. I got no sleep and I am exhausted from working an 70 hour week and moving on top of it. This morning I picked up coffee and as I'm driving through the construction gate at work I have to make a tight turn and CRUNCH I hit the gate. I tore off my door handle. Tore it off! And there is a huge scratch on the rear passenger door. And I can't even do anything about it until Monday.

I'm a moron. I hate the construction at work. This is the second time I've done something to my car and it's not even really my fault. They make it impossible to park and you're always in danger of either being hit or hitting something because you have no room to maneuver. sigh.

I'm tired, mad and just frustrated. I want to go home and hide under the covers but I have to be at work for the next two days. And then I might be broke because who knows if they can fix a broken handle. Maybe they have to replace the whole damn door. sigh.

Somebody make me laugh....please.

I hate that gate, too. But that's mostly because I was too stupid to figure out which way it opened, and also not really coordinated enough to open it properly. Oh the shame I felt!

Michele has pink eye, and last week she had poison oak. Next week she'll get scurvy, then scabies, then maybe diaper rash or a disease that only baby cats can get.

you made ME laugh by how you did not want to spell out the f-word on your page. like the internet is not ready for that kind of language.

if you want i will steal you one of those "end construction" signs. you could put it up in your office.

You all make me laugh and I did not spell out the f-word because my mother reads my site. I want an end construction sign please. Instead of end the war, I want to end construction.

Want to see a picture?

a picture of the damage to the car? a picture of the disease that only B can have (but which i will soon have)? a picture of you saying the f word?

i have some weird tongue rash right now. it's possible i got it from a cat. more likely i got it from unpotable water though. WHY did i OPEN my mouth when we walked thru the water misting zone at california land?

ah...i just noticed that the word 'picture' is linked to a picture. now i feel more of a fool than sean trying to pull the gate open the wrong way. man, such a dumb move on his part. ah fudge, who am i to scoff.

oh man, i think you need a whole new door. i'm sorry. that door handle is right off. once i backed into a low pole at half price books when i worked there and had to get a new tire cover for the back of my car. it cost $350. and it's just a cheap piece of plastic. i bought several of them during that period when everyone and their mom decided to rear end me. i should have bought in bulk and gotten a deal.

It doesn't look as bad now. I think they may be able to just replace the handle. At least I hope so.....probably too optomistic on my part. I'll worry about it tomorrow
