Super pissed

Ok so I am officially a hockey mom. Apparently there's more to being a hockey mom than supporting my kid and occasionally telling the little punk that just hip checked my son if he hurts my baby I'll knock his teeth out. Yeah...I'm one of those. Don't hate, you're just as protective of your kids.

We were told to leave a $400 deposit check in the case that we didn't show up for our four required "volunteer" shifts doing concession at Oilers games. This ain't no bingo y'all. Hubs and I have talked it over after wasting four hours and two nights at pointless orientations and cash trainings with the slobbering gimpy idiots pulled right off the Employ Abilities line that actually got jobs at the arena, and they just need to let us know when they're cashing the check. The money will be there. If it were a simple bingo or sending my son door to door with book thingies...sure I'd do it. But I am not working what's really a second job to fund raise for my son's hockey team. Fuck that shit. Let's add that I quit my retail job because I've become so hateful and cynical with the general public that the next person that annoys me may very well be in for a punch in the face.

I heard once that a single person is smart, but people are ignorant. Sometimes it's true, not always. I'm sure people think that I'm an ignorant cocky bitch because of the way I talk, yeah I'm cocky, can be bitchy, but when I say something mean about's because it's true. And very obviously so.

I never used to be this mean. It wasn't until I spent so much time working retail that I really started hating people. I need to get out. Seriously, or I'm going to alienate everyone I know and end up truly alone. And I don't want to do that, especially to the people that really know me...the real me...not the incessantly angry and bitter bitch that most people see, even so, it takes years for those people to see...I don't open up to people easily.

Anyway...thanks to the most pointless nights of 2009 I'm going to see a gain, I'll be lucky if it's not more than a 2 lbs gain. Those stupid meetings were at 5:30. We had to leave the house at 4 to drop the kidlet off then get back to the northside in time then didn't get to eat until almost 8 pm, if not after, and the only thing nearby was taco bell. It was delicious, but completely screwed me. Oh well. Moving on...again.

Kinda ridiculous that you'd need to work like that for a hockey team.. whatever happened to the days when parents would drop their kids off at practice and watch their games?? Geez.

You're preaching to the choir here. "Volunteering" sucks, people are idiots and I am one mean, cocky bitch.

It's okay. If you can't think of anything nice to say, come sit by me.

I know your pissed, but i laughed when you were talking about working retail. My son was a positve kid, till he started working retail. He has gotten better since he quit. He would say he hated peole too. Just like you. Wish you could find a solution to that problem.

I was wondering what ever happen to your friend. Maybe email me if you want.

take care, I'll be thinking of you.

Oh man! Welcome to the treadmill. I have worked more freakin concession stands than I can remember. Ugh!!

I feel you on this entry Amber. The longer I'm a nurse on this particular unit, the more I hate people. Ugh, they make me sick. Stop reproducing if you can't afford to pay for them...or you could just give up your addictions to drugs, alcohol, & cigarettes. That might help a bit. As a general rule, people are just stupid.
