Grrr. I was sick this weekend with a fever and sore sore throat, but I had no problem talking, only eating. Eating is a big deal to me since its hard to keep weight on, even with lifting and doing all the right eating, let alone not eating, so I lost I good 5lbs of mass because of this. Then it comes that my throat feels better and now I'm only congested, alright thats fine and dandy. I go to the doctor still because I didn't want it coming back and I thought it was a sinus infection or strept, he says its viral and doesn't give me anything. That sucks, because I go to the doctor maybe once a year because I usually never get sick, having a strong immune system after exercising, eating all my nutrients, and just being healthy overall. So I wind up going for nothing. At my work, the shift "manager", a guy that does all the bitch work of a manager but doesn't actually have a manager's title or even half his pay has now left for manager training. Well this sucks because he schedules everyone's shifts and he's really good with it, he understands what everyone wants and gives them shifts accordingly. Now I have some old, moronic manager scheduling my shifts and I get screwed only getting scheduled for one shift this week. Well that double sucks, because I skipped out on a lunch shift on saturday because I was serving and the last time I worked before that, I made literally a quarter of what I normally take in serving. Wow, so that means like no income for the last week and then only one day of work this week, awesome! I couldn't pick up a Monday shift, because no one wanted to give it up, usually everyone leaps to give away their shifts because they have other stuff going. Well, thats another $100 I can't make for the night, sucks for me. Tuesday rolls around, alright I'm still congestion but I'm working. I start to sound like ass, getting all horse, which probably makes the patrons feel all at home because I'm waiting on them and I have a horse voice and can barely talk...great for tips. Well I make do, I still walk out with $100 cash in hand...thats nice. I picked up a Wednesday shift from this dumb chick that wanted to give it away. Alright, awesome...another $100. Not awesome, I wake up this morning and can't fucking talk. Can't say a damn word. I'm a mute now and I can eek out a few raspy words if I hold my adams apple. Sometimes I talk and words are vocalized, sometimes not. Fuck, i had to give away my shift tonight because there's no way I can serve if I can't talk to a table. There's another $100 out the window. Girlfriend is at her parents barbie dream house, that they built a couple years ago when she first left for college, 1 1/2hours away from me in Pennsylvania. I can't even talk on the phone with her and apparently she posted her keyboard so no AIM or talk for us today. She wants to go to the beach tomorrow and then out for her friend's birthday which means even if i get my voice back and i can pick up a shift tomorrow night, she's not going to want me to work because she'll be staying with me and won't have anything to do while I'm at work. Minus another $100. Well I'm batting 1,000 this week and I've not made $300 so far that I would have made. Now I don't have any huge bills, just a cell phone and a lot of gas mileage but it would be nice to have the income and to be that much closer to buying a WRX outright, rather then having to finance a couple grand on the thing. Going to the doctors at 2:15. God damnit, damnit all to hell. if you read this, props!
