New employee started today. It seems that she might completely rock in a totally new way. I think that one of my people was a tad nervous about the new hire, even though they are doing completely different things. And when this person gets nervous, she gets a little needy. Normally, that’s not a problem. Today, though, I was really focused on getting the new hire up to speed. I was really explicit about this, too.
Gotta work on those management skills, I guess.
Came home early to go the dermatologist to see if there was anything to treat my AssFace. Hee. I realize that makes no sense, but I just felt like writing that. Anyway. I came home early to see the dermatologist about getting a Narrowband UV Lamp for my house. Since UV is the only thing that really truly works for this crap, I tend towards tanning salons (which have a lot of the wrong kind of light). But I’m definitely getting too old to bake myself that way, so I’m going the medical route. Turns out, I have to do their onsite UV treatment for like two months before my insurance will cover an at-home thing. Bummer, bummer drag. Especially because the doc is near my house, and I work in Manhattan.
Anyway. Left the Doc’s, went to my car, and the car alarm went off. Couldn’t figure it out. I thought maybe the battery had died, and reset the alarm state. (There’s precedent for this.) Called Maggie, who came with jumpers. (Bless her heart, because she had a friend over.) But they didn’t help. The alarm just kept blaring, resetting, blaring, resetting etc. The kill switch was useless.
THEN, just before we left the car to call a tow truck, I noticed that the wires to the alarm’s killswitch had been disconnected. I didn’t have strippers, nor did I think the length of wire remaining would allow me to reconnect ‘em, so I left. We’ll get the car tomorrow.
Got home, the ceiling is leaking. The feed from one of the loos is faulty.
Then the diswasher detergent dispenser broke.
Then Maggie went to bed sick.
Then my daughter gave me attitude for like, three hours.
Then I wrote this.
Love to all. Even you, the vigorously smoking nurse standing just outside the doctor’s office.
