Recap.

Just to recap:

In order of appearance, in the past week, I


• Found out I didn't get that promotion I applied for

• Got insulted by our HR Director in the process

• Got into a big fight with my best friend's fiancée

• Had my car mysteriously lose power to its headlights

• Had the problem fixed (it was a switch) to the tune of about $115

• Found out that Opie has cancer

• Found out it's incurable

• Had my ex come in to The Co-op and snub me yet again

• Got publicly shamed for being fat


And now I've just gone outside to discover that someone smashed up my side view mirror. Now I'm back upstairs and back online so that I can transfer still more money out of my saving-up-for-a-house fund so that I can pay for yet another automotive repair.

So, um, Universe? What the fuck is up, yo?

Maybe that is not the best place to work.

Publicly shamed? Oy. I feel murderous rage on your behalf.

linkage.

Though yesterday I posted about it in feminist_rage, fat_rage and fat_feminist, and the plethora of replies talking about what a shit that guy was made me feel a whole lot better.

Why, oh why do people feel the need to foist their own crap on complete strangers?

Asshat.

Swimming is wonderful. Don't let one asshat make you hesitate, even for a moment, to swim.

Yeah, seriously...what's up with the universe.

Me and my husband have been trying to save for a vacation (it would be our first vacation together and we never had a honeymoon. We've been married for three years.) but something always happens to our car - we should get a new car, but that means no vacation. I'm tired of spending money on things like that.

So, I hear ya.

Fuck all those people. Especially Jane, everyone knows she is a soulless bitch who never got the memo about what it means to be a co-operative. It amazes me that as shitty as living in the third world can be, it is nothing compared to dealing with the insecure, power thirsty assholes of the first world who will sell any ethic or moral just to see the next person put down a little further than them. You have a lot of people who care about you, Hope,and we want to see you happy, but there is only one person who has control over that. All the good wishes in the world aren't going to make it any easier for you to not give shit about your ex, or for you to find a better job, or to deal with your baby being sick, but I hope it can help you to realize that you have the strength to do all those things and so much more. In however many years since I started at the co-op and got to know you I have never seen you compromise yourself no matter how painful a situation you have been in, and for me that is the greatest strength that anyone can have.
Sorry that I'm rambling, but I just got out of a philosophical discussion with a Buddhist and I think I left my mind sitting on anther plane. I really do see a lot of strength in you, though, and hope you it leads you on the path you are looking for. As always, much love.

I hope that asshat at the pool slips on a bar of soap, so some sense may get knocked into his head.

I'm with you and others about the "one financial woe after another". Seems no matter how much we try to get ahead, something fucking comes up.

My heart goes out to you about Opie. I know how much he means to you.

your friend's soon-to-be-wife may grow up eventually. I know what that stress is like. Mel was the same way when we started hanging out again, but later calmed down. It goes in cycles.

I don't really appreciate the negativity about my fiancee. There is definitely more to the whole ordeal than what has made it to Live Journal.

No disrespect meant to your fiancee. Just basing on my own past experiences. More along the lines of hope getting unfriended. I'm sure there is more to this than what gets posted. Apologies to offended parties.
