Thanksgiving woes.

Happy mother fucking Thanksgiving everyone.

I sit here...by myself...contemplating whether I should have ramen noodles or instant mashed potatoes for dinner while the rest of you shove your faces full of turkey and all the trimmings. Fuck you all!!!

Yesterday was literally hell at work. I'm going to be lucky if I don't get my ass fired. About two these two guys walk in and ask if they can talk to room 112. I point them in the direction of the courtesy phone. Whatever...there isn't any do not disturbs out so I have to let them call. Then I think to myself "Self, there isn't a room 112 in our hotel." I tell this to the two guys and with a look of bewilderment they say "Oh. Really? Hang on." and proceed to go out to their car...coming back in and saying it's room 107 they want. I just give them a look and point to the phone again. Not like it's sprouted legs and walked away or anything. No answer I'm guessing...so they try again. Then they say "Maybe it was 212." Again they pick up the phone and dial. At this point I'm getting a little pisssed and inform them that if no one is picking up their call they will have to leave...worrying that guests are getting disturbed and that this might anger them...after all it is 2:30 AM. They give me a look like I'm going to give them trouble, then proceed to WALK INTO THE DAMN HOTEL AND START BANGING ON POOR 107'S DOOR. I follow them and say that they will have to leave, I'm sorry but they aren't allowed in the hotel without a room key or the guests permission, which the obviously don't have. They say fine, do you have a phone book. I hand them the phone book and the guy whips out his cell phone and calls the goddamned cops. Gives them some line about how they were assulted at a local bar and yadda yadda yadda. So after going and beating on 107's door AGAIN they finally leave. I figure this is the end of that and I can finally relax a bit. I'm sure I'm going to get bitched at in the morning for the guys behavior...but what could I do? Not much. I'm a 140 pound girl up against two 200+ pound guys. I was >< that close to calling the cops myself if they didn't leave...but they did so I figured the worst was over. Not five fucking minutes later...

in walk the cops. "Where's room 107?" I point down the hall and direct them two it. In walks the two guys. They follow to the room. I ask AGAIN not to go into the hotel until I find out what's happening. Apparently they fed the cops some story about their wallet getting stolen to get into the room. *This was after bribing me with $80 bucks to give them the KEY...yeah right.* So about 15 minutes later the cops come back and say they need to look at the outside of the building. Fine, whatever...at this point I don't care. They come back...finally get the people to answer. They ripped their room apart. Found nothing. These people's names didn't even match the ones the two guys were looking for...WTF???? I don't know what the finally story was...but after much "helping" the cops and getting the two fuckheads to stay in the damn lobby and smoke up the place...all four of them finally left around 4:30. You know...I really do love my job but sometimes living in a small town with very bored cops sucks royal ass.

And now...I'm going back to sleep.

*votes on chilli for dinner*

Night night!!!

Something makes me think that maybe you're missing the point of the holiday. =/

Anywho, I hope things get better for you at work. *hugs*

I really don't believe in celebrating the day that a bunch of Europeans landed in boats, stole land from it's rightful owners, proceeded to masacre said owners, and then raped their wives. Sorry. Although the idea is warm and fuzzy...I've never been the warm fuzzy type.

Well you sure know how to cast things in a negative light.

I'm generally not such a warm and fuzzy person either, but I can appreciate the greater value behind holidays and why they are celebrated. Which is not to say that you can't...

I'm not going to argue with you, but just wish that I could try to cheer you up a little. I hate to see you so down. :(

just so you know, not everyone had a blast. i sat in ICU with my mom. she didn't eat, cause she keeps puking, and i had no money to buy things to make a meal.... instead, i got home around 8:30 pm, and ate a can of spaghetti o's.

aside from my mom spilling the beans about my christmas gift (and it's the only one i'm getting, mind you), that's how my day was as i was shoving my face.

yeah. and Derek stopped by Tuesday night, before he left for Colorado yesterday so he could get some before he left, and has ignored me since.

my life blows, too.

Spaghetto's...wow...those bring back memories...I wish I hadn't eaten all mine now.

And leave to men to get laid and then disappear. At least Jesse went to Madison so I didn't have to deal with that.

*hugs* I'm sorry things are going shitty for you. If you ever need to vent feel free to use yahoo. That's what I'm here for.

That's gay. How could the cops even go in there if they didn't have a warrent? Lame.
