I am having a crappy day. The kind of day that makes me want to scream obscenities….and I do……only in my head because I am civil and educated like that. Out loud I just make loud cries of ultimate suffering. People in the offices next to me think that I am dying a horrible, torturous death. And they would be right.
It all started with my taxes. I decided that today I was going to file my taxes. And before you make some snide remark about leaving my taxes to the last minute, I have to say in my defense that my W-2s got sent to the wrong address, even though they had my correct address on file. (It is unimportant to note that if I started my taxes earlier than two weeks ago, I would have received my W-2 forms earlier and still not have to do them last minute….whatever.) I hate the government. How wrong is it to have a person at poverty level pay $750 dollars in state and federal taxes? The answer: VERY WRONG. These people should be shot. And yes, I qualify for a stinking rebate, but is it really a treat if you have to spend the rebate on paying your taxes? NO.
Then I learned that my professor added a question to the lab assignment that is due Monday and neglected to tell anyone. The same lab assignment that I spent all last night finishing so that I could be productive today and work on other things. I learned today that sometime during the week an extra question had been added. Which you know sucks, because that extra question took me a good two to three hours of extra work.
And then, as if that wasn’t enough, what did I have to go and do? Right after I finished my lab report (a word document), I went and deleted all the added changes in my excel spreadsheet. The excel spreadsheet I have to turn in with my lab report so he can check out my analyses. Why did I do this? What evil spirit possessed me and made me check the “don’t save changes” button on my excel file? I don’t know!
What I do know is: I need an intervention people, and I need it now!
