At work it was busy and not with very good children either. One mom dropped her son off with a bottle of Ginger Ale and a pack of saltines. This should have given me a hint. As the day progressed this little boy informed me that he had been vomiting all night and all morning. I was pissed. I tried calling the mom, she had her phone off. About lunch time I noticed a very sweet baby was acting a bit off. I took her temp it was 102. I called her mom. Then about midday another lil girl had diarrhea. Her parents also decided to turn their phones off. What is wrong with people? Again these are not struggling working moms. These are the elite, that have nannies and such but use our service to go play tennis or get their hair done. Why? Why? Why? Would you drop off your kid sick then turn off your phone! If you do not care about the rest of the children and staff don't you care about your own child? So now I am battling sickness all around. I am still not over the last round. Needless to say the day was not too great. Around 1:30 I noticed Mason was sleeping which is odd, he's ten, so he doesn't nap. I checked on him and he had a fever of 102. as well. Now I felt like crap about the way I had treated him.
I was counting down the hours and was almost there when the phone rang at work. It was my older kids. "Mom, something bad happened." Michael informed me. "Oh god. What?" I said. Last time I got this call someone had stapled shot their teeth out. You can enjoy that story here. "Well, my friend came by......" His explanation is cut short as I hit him with my barrage of questions. "What friend? What was he doing there? No one is supposed to be there when I'm not!" etc. etc. "Well John was thirsty and....." "Just tell me what the hell happened!" I said getting more irritated by the second. "Well, John knocked at the front door and the glass broke." I said a whole bunch of bad words here, and reminded him that the last time they broke the front door glass it cost me $200 to replace a piece of glass the size of a book. I was pissed. Not only was that unsightly but it was an emergency because anyone could just reach in our door turn the lock and come on in. I was furious!
|Seriously I can relate.|
|I understand this much better now.|
He worked on the fridge, fixed the door for $35 which by the way pisses me off because last time he said he could not fix it and I paid $200! It was the same door. Same window! But anyways just another day in Raquel's World.
So if you spot me at your local salon doing this move. You know what's up..
