Yeah, I know. I should not complain. I should be happy that I have a full-time job while others are struggling to survive.
But I guess that's human. We whine and complain and are never content...
What bugs me at the moment is - for the second time in my life - the situation at work. [Hell, maybe it's all my fault in the first place.]
So, 15 months ago my boss talked me into getting more tasks assigned to me and it all sounded so great. He promised me a significant pay rise (approx. $500 more per month pre-tax) and since I can NEVER say no to my boss I agreed. Hubby was happy as we finally achieved his final aim: Me earning more than him. Yeah great... male emancipation *lol*
But the thing is, forget the money. The stress is too much and I hate it. I am still trying to avoid any extra hours pretty successfully but that doesn't help me in the long run. The "to do" pile on my desk does not magically disappear over night *sigh* On most days, for every task I can finish I will get two new task. Great, just great...
And all this while we are trying to have a baby. Did I mention the stress? I can't remember one single day at work where the thought "Oh please, I hope it works this month and I can stay at home a few months" did not cross my mind at least once.
Right now, it's that week of the month again where I do not know yet whether it worked or not ^^ I hate this week. I f***ing hate it. I hate it so much that I even start a discussion about it, I mean... really???
In case it worked (and I will know within a few days), my endless gratitude will go to:
1) EL James for writing what we ladies REALLY wanted to read. Not those euphuistical, fustian and grandiloquent romance crap and
2) to my wonderful online dictionary for showing me these funny three words I just used. Does anyone really use them?
Buuuuut, that's not the topic here and not the question I would like to ask you...
The question is:
What do you think the type of boss portraited in these smutty books? I mean they are behaving just like my boss but they are sexy. Mine is not, not even near and when he wore a GREY tie last week I almost puked.
