WARNING: It’s been a crazy week and it’s only Tuesday. I’ve got to byotch or explode. Continue reading at your own risk. (think I might make this a weekly meme)
Worked 7a-330p today, 7a start time means I’m rolling my happy butt out of bed at 5:30a. After work I come home, done a final edit to some photos, loaded up the iMac computer to take to the studio, told Alan I would be home between 6-630 and could he please do some laundry. I was out of clean everything. If he could throw in a load or two that would be great.
Go meet with clients about their images, load iMac computer back in car to go back home. Now, I almost always buckle up my iMac. My iMac is the butter to my cameras bread…can’t have one without the other. The camera and my computer are the major players for my photography business. Anywho, I neglected to buckle up the iMac.
Driving back home I’m on a 4 lane road. I’m in the outside lane heading North. Some asshole driving South decides to make a left turn in front of me to get into Arby’s. Now, making the left turn is no big deal…the driver is cutting it a bit close, but I slow down to give him extra time. What I did not anticipate was the stupid mother(&@#^*Q@^&#^ STOPPING directly in front of me!!! I have to slam hard on my brakes to keep from hitting him. The iMac goes flying forward, bounces off the dashboard and lands on the floor. I was inches from t-boning this assholes car. I have no freaking idea why he stopped before pulling into the Arby’s parking lot. However, Mr. Asshole Driver..next time I will not stop but I will slam into you…You. Have. Been. Warned.
Honestly, the guy scared the crap right out of me. PLUS, and here’s the main thing, HE HURT MY iMAC! Ok, I’ll take partial responsibility for not buckling in my computer, but holy mother of g*d learn to freaking drive. Luckily, Macs are hardy computers and it seems to be working just fine, but as it was lying upside down on the floor I had no idea if it was dead or not. Btw, yes, I know I need another computer for the studio. However, I’m barely making rent for the studio so a large purchase is currently out of the question.
Ok…the night just gets better. After I get home and have a drink (had to do something to calm the nerves…I was pretty shook up). I cook dinner, finish up another set of images, argue with children about washing dishes (“it’s not my turn”; “those dishes are from yesterday so I don’t have to wash them”, etc, etc, etc…..serenity now!!!) and remember that I need to put laundry in the dryer.
Now, when I got home Alan was going on and on about how much he had done while I was away. 2 loads of laundry, cutting the grass, etc. Yes dear…big pats on the back to you…you are king (HUGE eye roll!!!! Nobody thanks me for busting my ass) He mentions that we are out of laundry soap. I’m thinking it will be o.k. because he done 2 loads while I was gone right??? I go to transfer laundry and …..
wait for it…….
wait for it…………..
Alan done 2 loads of TOWELS!! HUGE HEAD THUNK!!! I stood there with a look of complete disbelief. Seriously??? We are running out of laundry soap and you decide to wash the towels and not clothes???? O.M.G. Lucky for him I found a sample packet of Tide and was able throw in a load of actual clothing. So, out of curiosity I asked him why he washed the towels and not the clothes. His reply “Because the towels were on top”
Yes, I know that washing the towels is doing the laundry, but did you read the part about me having no clean clothes,,,,I can’t very well wear a damn towel to work!!
Does anyone else feel my pain??? Anyone???
Is anyone still with me or did I loose you all with my boring tale of woe The laundry was just the icing on an already crappy day.
I just don’t understand men, never have, never will….any insight would be greatly appreciated!
