I said before, that I was giving up cursing for Lent, as a way to give up a bad habit. I'm not even Catholic, though I do believe in God. Considering all the times I got mad enough that I wanted to dump soup on coworkers' heads or make them be "*the bitch on the other side of the door" from the kitchen, when I have to kick it open, I think I've done pretty well.
*That's Mom's quote. She's seen me at work when I have to kick the kitchen door open while trying to balance a heavy tray. Once, I was still really new and carrying a tray that was much too heavy. I was having a hard time balancing and kicked the door a little too hard, so that it flew open and almost hit the wall. About three feet away from the door, there's a little too seater table and one of the chairs is right next to the door. Sit too far back and you can be the bitch on the other side of the door. (The week after that, the lady manager stopped me while I was on my way back in to tell me I could leave soon and I got hit with the door. It sucked.)
There were a few times that I slipped up a little bit. I said "wtf" or "slut" or similar phrases, without even thinking about it. I had a couple of dreams where I dropped f-bombs and all sorts of other words. Also during those dreams, I felt like the worst person ever because I had said words I promised not to say before Lent was up.
I'm pretty proud of myself.
I'm really only proud because this one girl at work is out to get me. There have been a few days where she'll walk passed me and "accidentally" bump into me hard enough I'll fall into something, or someone. Then when I walk by her and don't even touch her, she acts like I'm doing that to her. She's also spread a lot of rumors about me and blames me for literally everything that goes wrong, even if I'm not there. Not to mention the fact, she's walked into the dining room and started screaming at me to get out of her way so she could pass out the food for her table, when my entire job is to bring the food to the customers. I literally cannot win with her and it will be a relief when she gets fired, as bad as that sounds.
I never cursed at her, but I am guilty of thinking "fucking bitch" every time I look at her. That's probably not good and I'm working on that. I really need to stop that before I say that instead of her name. I'm pretty sure that would not go over well with anyone. Except maybe Mr Fix-It. I think he would laugh.
This post is turning into a more "people I hate at work" post, isn't it?
Well, I still plan on keeping the cursing to a minimum. After all, if I'm going to own and work in a daycare, I can't go around using all sorts of colorful words that parents might not want their kids repeating.
Wish me luck.
