My crappy day - long

Go to work at 7:30am for a 10am trip.

Get pulled for a drug test at 8.  (dr office opens at 9am) 

Run to doctor's office at 9am.  Sat for 50 minutes (having to pee the whole time).  Had to get someone else to work, because by the time I was called in, the trip was leaving.

I'm so pissed right now for losing a 9 hour shift, that after I pee I flush the damm toilet.

Do not have enough pee for another test.    UGH...

Go back to work and was asked to go to St John to drop off the National Park permit application and fee (in cash)

Get off ferry, it starts to pour.  I'm in a white shirt and raincoat and hat are on the boat I work on.

Walk in the rain to NP office.  They do not take cash.  I have to walk around ST John in the rain to find a place that does money orders. 

Get money order, drop it off.  I am completely soaked by this point..  Miss the ferry by a few minutes.

I decided I need a beer and lunch.  I catch the next ferry (hour later), go back to doctors office, pee, Did NOT flush the toilet

Now I'm in my warm comfortable home. 

How is everyone else?

    Oh geez!  I'm sorry you had such a crappy day!  Do you not get paid for that shift since they made you go get a drug test?  That's pretty sh!tty if that's the case.

    I'm fine, feeling kind of blah and crappy and not sure why.  We were supposed to get together with friends tonight but my H just cancelled it because he's getting sick and doesn't feel well.  So now I guess we'll just be sitting at home tonight.  :/

    no Dani we do not.   Worse part is half my salary is from tips.  No trip, no tips. 

    If I was on the boat I would have been rained on also.  But at least I would have have my awesome marine rain gear.

    that suck sara...  At least our rain is in 70 degrees weather  and not 24.  But still losing a shift over something beyond your control sucks either way.

    You didn't have to pee in a little cup?

    I'm sorry abot your horrible day. Living on a tropical island is not always what it's cut out to be, huh? Especially when it's rainy.

    That kind of blows. I have a snow day today, which is cool, except for the fact that it screwed me out of $2500. I complained last night but clearly it's still bugging me.
    Leo says hi. He's...special.

    It's 10 degrees here and still snowing (since about 26 hours ago).

    I should add - I LOVE SNOW. It is beautiful outside and yes, i'm at work.

    But Lynda, I also love the area you are in.  It is an amazing, beautiful area.

    It's about 20 degrees here, and still snowing... stupid snowstorms.  I'm working, and got another huge project dumped on me, so that was pretty shitty, but I found out we're bringing in a temp for my department to help us catch up.  That brightened my mood a bit.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010
