Whenever something goes wrong in my life I immediately blame it on karma and the fact that I am obviously being punished for something I’ve done in my life. And despite my efforts in being a good human being, I can count on my fingers & toes experiences in life that I am not too proud of. And most of those experiences involve alcohol. Ooopsa.
This morning I am greeted to work with an email reprimanding me doing something that was not my fault, but an error of someone I assist. Now you may be saying, “oh Kristine, just suck it up and take responsibility for your wrong doings”. I suppose I should have been paying closer attention, but regardless, I was given orders to change something, without any knowledge to why it was being adjusted. So this just swooped the day into miserable-madness.
THEN. I got some bill from a dentist appointment I had LAST NOVEMBER, claiming I owe them $450….but why? Isn’t that what insurance is for? OHHH NO HOO apparently not and apparently they never took the insurance. But how did I find this particular dentist? Oh that’s right, on the insurance’s website. So they gave me some bullshit explanation and that it is my responsibility to make sure the doctor sends the insurance the claim. And what else? I will have to pay and there is nothing I can do about it.
(snarl, a little whimper and a sigh)
“Thank you for calling Reliance Standard Health Insurance. You opinion counts. Would you take a brief survey about the level of assistance we just provided?”
“ARE YOU KIDDING ME? BADDDDD assistance. No no no!”
As I sat there and started shaking the woes of the day out of my head, the next bomb dropped.
I received a text from my roommate, Courtney that said,
“Hey girls, I wont be around this weekend…
Ok. I don’t care. When are you ever around? And p.s., we don’t hang out.
“And I just wanted to give you a heads up that I’m looking to move out by 9/15.”
OH GOD. Isn’t that just great.
1) Complaining about my current situation, when in fact it’s not all that bad compared many others.
2) The fact that I lived most of my life as a horror of a daughter to my parents, giving them daily grief and I’m sure wondering what went wrong in their parenting.
3) I’ve been selfish and un-intentionally inconsiderate with other people’s feelings.
4) I never donate money to worthy causes and NEVER stop at lemonade stands.
5) I am awkward and I’m sure that equals mean to children & senior citizens.
