I'm starting my third week as a factory worker. I'm tired all of the time and everything hurts. We had today off, but I understand, that beginning tomorrow, we're working 12 hours each day, 7 days a week. I put a Dennison Fastener through the tip of my finger on Friday. And I have a splinter in my *** from sitting on a stack of pallets. (I won't have to learn THAT lesson again). We've tried just about everything to get it out. My husband wants me to go to the Doctor to get it out, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I'm going to try bikini wax in a few minutes. And even worse than ANY of that, it dawned on me that I am NEVER going have time to get my hair done. We can't have this. I'm going to have to do my own hair! I don't do hair. I'm no good at it.

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to start losing members of my staff. They aren't going to be running presses for very long before they jump ship. My boss and his wife came over to our house last night. He's on the verge of walking out, himself. It seems as if the place is crumbling from the inside out.

I've re-read this and tried to find a point to my post and there really isn't one.. I'm just rambling because I can. :)

I haven't been able to stay on top of anything here. Have I missed anything good?

I appreciate the reminder. Days of the week don't hold much meaning for me right now. Everyday is Monday...

Well

by maecuff In reply to :|

the bikini wax didn't work. This is so ridiculous. It's just a little splinter. My husband is going to try to find some drawing salve and see if that works. If it doesn't, I'll have to see a doctor becuase I'm afraid it's starting to get infected.

Spent too many years doing that

And would have a difficult time going back to it.

If they are not paying overtime and some bonuses, now sounds like the time to walk as you know they were looking at your position anyways. Don't kill yourself over a company that feels no loyalty back.

Tell hubby that you can remove splinters much like snake venom, by sucking it out!

I have just got home from a weekend in the woods and just starting to look around.
