Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I’m not having a very good day so far. I went to bed furious about this stupid gem shop that I’ve been trying to get to lately. I have silversmithing on Friday and need a stone. This is the only place to get it, but they have shitty hours, only 10-6 and I work til 5.

So I’ve hauled ass FOUR times this week to get there before 6 only to find them closed EACH TIME!

The kicker is that I even called the woman yesterday and asked her to make sure to stay until the proper 6pm closing time because I would be there at 5:30. The fucker left! She promised she would be there and she fucking LEFT! Before 5:15 because I even called! I went anyway, trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but she WASN’T THERE! I went all the way there to find an empty shop!

I am so fucking furious with the people that run this place. There are a lot of details I’m leaving out of this because it would take me hours to type up everything, but I have EVERY RIGHT to be FUCKING FURIOUS.

So I went to bed angry and woke up crying early this morning. Despite my dream-blocking meds, a very upsetting and emotional dream slipped through… I had a terrible dream that my dad had a heart attack and then his heart became infected and he passed away. You have no idea how intense the sadness was in this dream. It was totally in your face and I woke up crying and out of breath. That never happens.

I was so upset about this that I actually called my dad this morning to make sure he was ok. The last time I got an intense feeling like that, I “felt” like something had happened to my cat. It turns out that she was ok, but the OTHER cat ran away! So I was definitely feeling something!!! (It was when I was leaving for Vegas, my buddy Tigger ran away for the whole week I was gone! He came back but it was so unusual!)

And now it’s raining, my day is filled with stupid conference calls and there was even one scheduled from 5pm-6pm! I am fucking livid! I HAVE to go back to that shitty store today and get that stone or I’m screwed tomorrow. Now if I have to stay past 5 today it means that my only chance is to go at lunch, assuming I even have time for lunch today!

I am just so goddamned PISSED today!

  1. I'm so sorry you've had an awful day.

    As for that woman closing up shop, etc… I definitely, DEFINITELY hear you on that.

    It happens all the time here in Montreal.. and I'm used to it now, but in the beginning I was livid, frothing mad at the mouth

  2. Boo. That really sucks. Once you're in a bad day funk, I know it's hard to get out of it. But maybe if you start thinking of all of the things you have to be grateful for? That is helpful for me sometimes. And as far as the gems go, is that something you might be able to order online? I hate stores that are not making an effort for our business, especially in these troubled economic times. Don't they want you money???

  4. Aww, thanks for letting me rant, guys. I was pretty darn mad. I just re-read this and the words "Spewing vitriol" come to mind. I was hopping mad.

    I really don't like being THAT angry. It takes a lot out of you, it feels awful and even makes your body hurt! I've only ever been that mad once or twice before in my life.

    I'm feeling better now. I managed to get out at lunch and pick up a stone. The same woman was working there today. I don't know if she knew it was me, but I actually held my tongue. I usually like the people that work there and she's nice in person, talking to me about my rings and the stones we both like and stuff. And she gave me a discount on my stuff, too. How can I turn around and yell at someone after that?

    I just don't ever want to feel that way again. I really, really dislike being angry. It's one of the worst feelings in the world. I could have shredded someone.

  5. I'm glad you finally got it! Are there no other stores you could have picked it up at though? If you aren't being treated well, why not take your business somewhere else?

    I know there's numerous bead stores along Queen, but I'm not familiar with gems.
