What is he thinking?

July 29, 2008

I took yesterday off to deal with all this shit.  I was on the phone pretty much from 9am-12pm, talking with my insurance company and my father.  I then took my car into my dealership for an estimate, which the damage is worth $2,000.  Today I have an appraiser coming from my insurance company to look at my car.  I do not want to file the claim through my insurance company though.  I called them just in case this a-hole decides to not take responsibility.  Which it’s looking like the case.  I FINALLY heard back from him around 8pm last night.  He was obviously worried about the damage that was done to my car right? NOT!  This is what he told me…and I’m quoting here, “I spoke to our treasurer  and he said the best way to deal with this is for you to put it through YOUR (MEANING Me) Insurance company and then we will pay whatever deductible you have.” WTF??  ARE.YOU.KIDDING.ME?????  I told him that I did not think that was such a hot idea, seeing how it was NOT MY FAULT IN ANYWAY!  He then proceeds to tell me that it wasn’t done intentially. DUR! I know that idiot.  But the fact remains it was done and YOUR PEOPLE DID THE DAMANGE.  I PROCEED to tell him, that I have contacted my insurance company and told them that I had a witness to him saying that HE and his BUSINESS would take care of it, and also that I HAVE CONTACTED THE POLICE and had an incident report filed out.  He was quiet.  I said that I did not feel that I should have to be penalized for something I had no part in and why should I risk my insurance going up because his people were careless??  He said oh your rates won’t go up…oh wait..let me get this straight…so now your an insurance agent and you can assure me my rates go up?? F off!  He compared this accident to me driving down the road and something hitting my car…hmm yeah buddy this is NOT THE SAME THING.  I WAS NOT DRIVING. MY CAR WAS PARKED AND YOUR OLD MAN MOWING THE LAWN OBVIOUSLY SHOULD NOT BE MOWING THE LAWN IF HE CAN’T SEE A BIG WHITE SUV 3 INCHES FROM HIS LAWN MOWER!!!  So really I’m even more livid.  I don’t want to become a bitch about this, but really? I REFUSE to have my insurance company pay for this.  I mean if I absolutely have too…of course I will…but these people will pay one way or another!

On another note…I spent over 4 hours yesterday in urgent care..fun fun!!  I decided to go have my knee checked out.  it’s been almost 3 weeks since I fell and it still bothers me terribly.  They took xrays, which came back fine, however, the doctor was really concerned because she said I have a lot of swelling under my patella and that is not normal and due to my history with my knee..she’s afraid more may be wrong.  So she put me in a neoprine sleeve, and said she is calling first thing in the morning and making a doctors appointment for me with my surgeon! Great..just freakin..GREAT!

So what else can go wrong?  Last week alone…my phone (which I still haven’t gotten it fixed), my car, my knee…hmm what’s next?

I am NOT a HAPPY CAMPER

July 28, 2008

I’ll cut to the chase.  The assholes next door thought it was a good idea to mow the damn lawn 3 inches from my car.  Needless to say there was no common sense involved!  While they were mowing..rocks began flying.  Yes, they hit my car.  I’m now left with a BRAND NEW CAR, with LESS THAN 2500 MILES on it, it has a broken (ok SHATTERED) window and tons of gouges out of the paint.  I am more than a little pissed off… I called immediately, seeing how they were so nice to let me find this mess on my own and never bothered to come and tell me, or leave a note..NOTHING they DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it.  I called the business next door brought my car over and had them look at it.  I took TONS of pictures of the damage for proof.  There is glass all over my driveway, shards of glass IN MY BRAND NEW CAR…quite frankly glass all over the fucking place!  The guy did not deny it.  He said he’d take care of it. Hmm this was Saturday night.  He was drunk off his ass, and it was pouring rain out.  He told me to call him Sunday so he could take a better look at it in the daytime and when it was not raining (and when he was SOBER).  So I called, he said he would be here in a couple minutes and would call when he arrived.  I sat here for 2 1/2 hours..and never heard a word from him.  When I called again, I was told he had come and gone.  You see I live near a legion.  And this guy is the Commander in Chief.  So my only contact number for him is the legion phone number.  When I called the legion 2 1/2 hours later to see if they had heard from this guy, the lady was quite surprised he never called me.  She stated she gave him my phone number and name and he was there about 1/2 hour after I called the first time.  Fucker!  If this guy wants to play nasty BRING.IT.ON.!!  I absolutely REFUSE to pay for any of this.  I CALLED the cops.  Filed an incident report and if need be I will file charges.  Today I had to take the day off as the cop advised me not to drive the car unless it is to get an estimate..because if I do, I literally have glass pieces flying off of it.  So now, I’m not only driving a brand new CAR with broken glass, paint chip gouges, now I’m out today’s pay for work.  I also need to get a rental car..who the hell is paying for that?? Certainly NOT ME!! I plan on calling this asshole, and basically threaten him.  Tell him I will FILE CHARGES, if he doesn’t pay for it all, including my loss of wages from today!!  I’m so beyond pissed I can’t even tell you.  My car will need to be repainted.  REPAINTED..IT”S BRAND FUCKING NEW!!!!!!!!!  I literally could cry..ok so I have cried several times in the past 2 days over this.  It makes me SICK!  Sick of the fact I have one more thing to worry about.  Who has time to deal with this shit? and NOW? This asshole is going to turn this into a fight.  I’m ready.  BRING.IT.ON.FUCKER!  I will bring them to small claims court if need be! I will be reimbursed for any amount of money I spend to get this fixed!  I could go on and on..but really the words won’t be nice one’s so I;ll end here and leave you with these LOVELY PICTURES:

I have only included 1 picture of the gouges in my paint…trust me my entire side of the car is FULL of them!! SUCKS…I’m totally SICK to my stomach over this!

GOING TO GO VISIT MY GIRLS!!!!

July 23, 2008


Tuesday Randomness…..

July 22, 2008

Let me start by saying…

I”M ON VACATION!  

As you all know..I welcomed my niece into the world on Friday.   I’m so glad I was able to be there when she was born!  She is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!  This makes 3 beautiful little nieces that I have now!!!  I’m hoping to spend one of my days off visiting them. 

The bridal shower went really well.  It was great to see this awesome person!!  We haven’t hung out in forever.  Next time we do it needs to be without an agenda…still it was fun!

My cell phone has decided to F* with me.  It was working fine up until Sunday night.  Then all of a sudden it wouldn’t hold the charge.  I turned it off and put it on the charger.  It was completely charged, then not even 2 hours later…”low battery” warning message came on and it shut off.  I charged it again, and the same damn thing happened.  I took it to verizon yesterday, left my phone for them to look at…when I went back, I was told it was a network problem within my phone and they fixed it.  Sure whatever that means.  So happy to have my phone back, I head home.  By 2 hours later..”LOW BATTERY”! UUGGHH, I’m wondering if they even looked at it.  So I’m heading back there today.  What a pain in the A**!  I want it replaced.  I have the insurance on it for a reason!  Obviously there is something wrong!  I NEED my PHONE! Oh by the way Angie, you never gave me your cell phone number over the weekend.  Email it to me PLEASE!!  Geez, I’ve pimped you out twice in once post..don’t you feel honored!!  I will even buy a new phone..at this point I don’t care..I just want one that works!

Last night, I babysat my adopted daughter!! haha not really but thats what I call her! It’s my friends baby.  We had a blast!  We played and played…damn makes me want one!  Yes Aunt Sherry , I did take pictures, and I even took a video!  She’s so damn cute!

Today, I don’t have much on the agenda…going to verizon and I’m supposed to have lunch with a friend, but not sure if that is going to happen as I still have yet to hear from her.  It’s been so long since we’ve gotten together.  We’ve lost touch over the past couple of years.  I miss hanging out with her.  She had a baby last year and now I’m lucky if I talk to her once every couple of months.  I wasn’t even invited to her son’s christening, and his bday is this friday and shes having a party for him, and I am not invited to that!  It makes me sad, although, I do realize her priorities have changed.  But still upsets me..I mean I was in her wedding just 3 years ago, I thought I was a close friend…guess I thought wrong.

Well I need to get my butt to Verizon…I hope you all have a great day!

I KNEW IT……..Dammit!!!!

July 18, 2008

Just received a call from my brother at 7am…..

They are at the hospital…my Sister-In-Law is 3 cm dialated!  I’m now going home by way of their house…which means my 3 hour trip has now turned into a 5 hour trip.  But whatever…I WILL SOON BE AN AUNT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YEAH! I”M SO FREAKIN EXCITED!!!!  I just hope she has the baby by 3pm because I need to leave there by that time……dear god PLEASE have the baby!!!!!!! I’m bummed though because I will not be able to spend much time at the hospital. I need to be in my hometown by 6pm to decorate for the bridal shower. Maybe I’ll call and postpone the decorating? Is that bad?? OH WELL……

I’m soon to be

 the

 proud aunt

 of a new

NEICE or

NEPHEW!!!!!!!

YEAH!

 


Waiting Patiently…

July 16, 2008

I’m going to be an Aunt again anyday now and I can’t freakin wait!  My sister-in-law was due MOnday, my niece/nephew refuses to show his/herself!  I have been patiently waiting by the phone and everytime it rings, I get really excited…but still nothing.  Now one thing I’m not so excited about is that if she has the baby today, I can’t go see them tonight.  They live an hour-in-a-half from me and tonight I’m going to a concert.  Tomorrow, of course I have to work, but I am able to go tomorrow night.  However, Friday – Sunday is out.  I will be going home for a bridal shower, that I have to be at.  I have no choice because I’m part of the bridal party.   Don’t get me wrong, I want to go to the shower it will be fun, but the thought of not seeing my niece/nephew in the hospital makes me sad.  If she does have the baby, and I am not able to go visit her in the hospital, this will be the first niece/nephew I have not gone ot the hospital for 😦  So pray…either she has the baby tomorrow or holds off until at least Sunday. 

On another note…I believe I maybe getting an extra vacation at work.  Really??? This makes me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy!  I was supposed to have a teacher go out on vacation next week, however, this person decided to work instead.  Well I already have coverage for this person, so we will have an extra teacher. So I?  Have given my two teachers that are working now the option to take a couple days off.  One said that she will probably take only 1 day and the other one said he didnt want to take any days off.  So that means that I am taking full advantage of it.  I will be taking whatever days off the others don’t.  Because really???  I SO NEED IT after these past two weeks.  I know that sounds babyish, that after two weeks I need a vacation, but really? If you worked where I did and have been dealing with the crap I deal with on a daily basis you would be ready for a vacation as well!  So I may have and extra 3 days off next week…I’m so freakin excited at the thought of it I can’t stand it!

Go visit this awesome lady.  She rocks..I mean she’s teaching a cheerleading camp for 20 children, 4 years old and younger…how much more of an awesome person can you ask for?

Busy Weekend….

July 14, 2008

My weekend started on Thursday!  However, I never left work until late thursday night.  Why is that? Hmm because I had a TON to finish up before taking off for the weekend.  Also? I had to fill out an accident report.  Yup you read that right.  A Damn accident report.  ONCE AGAIN, I re-injured my knee.  Yes the KNEE I’ve have 2 (NO NOT ONE BUT TWO!!!) Surgeries on!!!   I also have two fairly big rug burns on my elbows and on my hand.  I’m a friggin klutz.  I can’t stand it.  I won’t go into details..but it wasn’t pretty.  When I left work, I could barely walk, and my knee, was about 3 times the size it should be.  Needless to say, I got home and stayed put, elevated and iced the rest of the night. 

Friday, woke up and decided I better get my butt to urgent care to have my knee looked at.  It was still very swollen and honestly walking KILLED me.  So I showered and off I went.  Unfortunately, when I got there, there was over a 2 hour wait.  So really I said screw it and left.  I was not about to sit there for over 3 hours on my day off.  The sucky part?? I called and cancelled a dentist appointment, which I can not get in now until September…totally sucks!!!!!!  Why does it take so long to get in to see a damn dentist for a cleaning anyway??  It’s ridiculous!  

The rest of the weekend I had visitors.  My friend and her baby ended up coming Friday night for dinner and ended up spending the entire weekend here with me.  It was so much fun!  Saturday, we spent the day at the pool.  It was so hot and the water felt so GOOD!  We got back home and were totally exhausted from being outside all day and basically crashed.

I also made my first ever banana bread this weekend.  It came out a little dry but it is still so yummy!  That was my dinner last night.  That is basically it.  This weekend was spent icing, elevating, loading the neosporin on my burns and bandaging, and visiting with great friends! I mean seriously what more could I ask for?? Oh wait I know…for my knee to be AOK and not hurt!!  I still have yet to go see a doctor.  It seems to be getting better and the swelling seems to be going down as the days go on.  So as of right now, I have no plans on going to get it checked out.  Today will be the test.  Seeing how it ends up after a day of running around at work.  I swear, if I could walk/run properly, I’d be all set! Anyone want to loan me their legs??

It’s my FRIDAY!

July 10, 2008

THANK GOD is all I can say!  It’s been (yet again) another rough week at work!  Monday went very smoothly.  I was actually excited for summer school to start.  We spent the day preparing our lesson plans and in meetings.  It was a very laid back day!  That of course was short lived! Once Tuesday arrived literally all hell broke loose.  It started about 10 minutes before school started.  One of my teachers became extremely ill.  I had to call the ambulance.  I felt extremely helpless as there was nothing I could do to help him. He’s since called and is home resting, I’m still not 100% sure what is wrong, but I do know when he left Tuesday he was not well at all.  I hope he is doing much better.  As a result, this now puts us ONCE AGAIN, a teacher down.  What does this mean?  Well between 3 of us we have 16 classes to cover.  On Tuesday, I had a couple interviews scheduled for our open position for fall.  So this means all 16 classes had to be covered by my remain 2 teachers.  Needless to say they were exhausted by the end of the day, which I so don’t blame them!  Yesterday, I took on 6 classes.  And let me tell you…talk about frustrating!  It would be one thing if the kids were good.  THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! It was a friggin nightmare.  And the worst part is the staff with the kids did absolutely NOTHING.  Talk about lazy!!  It’s one thing to have the kids horrible but yet controllable with the support of both staff members with the teams.  But to have 1 staff member completely clueless and doing NOTHING, and 1 staff member trying to keep control and hold each and every kid responsible.  With the type of kids I work with, quite honestly, it is extremely difficult to do.  They were taking advantage of the slightest opportunity to run their mouth, and behave as badly as they could get away with.  Ugghh, it was horrible!  Talk about emotionally & physically draining!  I’m hoping today will be different.  The kids attitudes depends on what staff member is working with them.  If it is a good staff the kids know they can’t get away with much and are as well behaved as they can be.  It is equivalent to having a self contained classroom.  Which with the proper support isn’t too bad, but with no support…all I can say is HOLY CRAP!  Thank god I’m off tomorrow…I have no choice,..I have a dentist appointment and can’t reschedule.  I do feel extremely bad for my remaining 2 teachers though.  Tomorrow will most likely be a rough day…

Sorry This post really turned out nothing like I thought.  I guess I just needed to vent.  It’s going to be 1 hell of a long summer if this crap continues!

Where did the week go?

July 3, 2008

As you all know this week I’m on vacation.  Really? It is going by WAY too fast.  I seriously DO NOT want to go back to work on Monday.  The thought of it…seriously..right now makes me sick to my stomach.  I could so use another 5 weeks off.  Even though I haven’t felt like I have done anything this week..it’s still been a pretty eventful week.  Here’s a recap:

Monday

Got up bright and early..and headed for a workers comp apt. for 8:30am.  Everything went well…It was determined that I do have significant loss of use and loss of strength in my knee.  What does this mean?  Honestly I have no idea…but I do know I am aware of my knee injury on a daily basis.  I guess now I just wait until my lawyer gets the doctors report and I get a date for a hearing…fun fun! 

I then headed off to the Pontiac Car Dealership to sign all of my paperwork for my new car!  Yes that was very exciting but yet kinda stressful!  But I do have to say I’m going on day 3 with my new car and I still ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Although the downside?  I think it’s going to be a gas guzzler! JOY! at $4.20/gallon..hmm I’m not so excited about this.

I then came home and slept.  Slept until 1pm then headed off to the chiropractor…which was a well needed visit.  My headaches are becoming very intense lately..so it did provide some relief even if it was for a couple hours. 

Headed to the grocery store after being “cracked”.  I haven’t been shopping in MONTHS.  Really? I don’t enjoy eating and I’m never really hungry..so therefore I NEVER go Grocery SHOPPING.  But I figured I had only the  basics in my fridge so I figured I better go.

After that? Yup, you guessed it..I came back home and slept for a couple more hours…now when  I say sleep…I’m not talking passed out cold.  More like I’m awake but my eyes are closed type of sleep.  I swear that is all I do lately…guess thats why a good nights sleep is essential..so you can keep your ass up during the day.

At 6, went and picked up my car.  YAHOO…I was so excited.  My old one was all cleaned out and not a tear was shed over the thought of never driving it again!  My new wheels are “SWEET” and I LOVE IT!  After leaving the car place in my new “wheels” I headed over to a friends house and picked her and her daughter up and headed to a sidewalk art show.  Lost of interesting pieces..oh yeah and interesting people.  It amazes me the type of people you see at “free” events.  Was home at 9:30pm and called it a night.

Tuesday

Was wide awake at 5 in the morning.  I was on the road by 7:30 to go visit Kellie and Morgan!  I had to pull over and get a cup of coffee and stretch a little because literally I was falling asleep at the wheel! UGH I hate that..it is very scary!  But the starbucks coffee I got gave me PLENTY of a caffenine boost.  Morgan has got to be the cutest girl ever.  She is so sweet!  We played, I pushed her around many times in her car around their development, held her as she climbed a wooden beam “up, up, up” !! She’s so damn cute!  She kept looking over at me and saying…”Hi Kewwee”  Adorable!!  I had a great time! Thanks Kel…we SO need to do this MORE OFTEN!! 

Got home around 6:30 then went to a friends house to show off my car…ended up staying until 10, of course we had to watch Hell’s Kitchen…can’t miss that!

Wednesday

Went to a friends Aunt’s house and spent the entire day in the pool.  It was very relaxing.  It was the first time her baby (6 months old) had ever been in the pool.  She loved it.  It was a good day except the fact that now??  I’m completely FRIED!  I’m talking like it hurts to move fried.  I feel like my skin is so damn tight …oh well at least now I will have some color..right?  Got home and went for a walk….

Today

I have a doctors apt at 10:30. Then I need to go pick up the above friend and follow her to her car dealership, where she will drop off her car and I will bring her back home…after that?? I have no clue…TBA…

Tomorrow

Providing it’s nice..I’m going to go up to a friends camp and spend the day up there…I’m praying my burn is gone by then.  So I can enjoy myself.

That’s all I got for you.  I know it’s long but I figured it would make up for me not posting much this week.  The only thing about this week that totally SUCKS…i’m still not sleeping well at night and I’m still up at the crack of dawn.  Oh well I guess I can’t have it all!
