If only school would teach me as much

Today is a good day. Work was easy, I got new cleats for my racing shoes at the bike shop, I bought U2's Achtung Baby after finally admitting that an ex will never send the limited edition one in the enviromentally friendly recycled cardboard case from 1991. I've waited 11 years for her to send it. I knew she wouldn't, I just didn't want to admit I lost it forever. Oh well.

Isn't it funny how when you want to tell someone something that you think is bad, it usually goes way better than expected? It's also a huge relief. You learn something about yourself and the other person.

So yesterday at the marathon snowed in day at work, where I started at 8 am at one store and went to an affiliate company's store at 5 until a little after 9. That part was cool. The uncool part was immature coworker girl threw something at me becaus eit was wrong, which I had nothing to do with, and I was livid. So, after a little while of fuming, I made the mistake of venting to a coworker. She in turn went to immature coworker, who then broke down and cried and went in the back room and it turned into an HR debacle. Short version is I admitted I made a mistake not talking directly to a manager or immature coworker, but also again illustrated the fact that I've been more than reasonable up to now. I also mentioned the fact it wouldn't have happened had she not thrown the item at me and made a bitchy attitude comment. It all ended up with me saying I can care less if I like her or she likes me, I just want to do my job and be left alone any other time. My managers are reasonable, and said fair enough.

Time to get my bike ready to ride. Me, too. I'm hungry, though.

Achtung Baby...good CD. I didn't know it had an environmentally friendly case.

I still say she's in love with you and too immature to admit it. Stupid girl... too late.
