No, I am NOT. Can you believe anyone had the nerve to actually tell me that? Stupid customer service representative. Parking services at UCDMC IS HOSTILE to nursing services. And that is all there is to that. We have to go through this hassle* every couple of years. I write to the Director of Nursing. I renew my parking permit on company time. And life goes on. [ *Hey, I looked up hassle on Miriam Webster and they actually had parking as an example of a hassle–that Miriam knows what she’s talking about: “something that is a source of irritation <itʼs a hassle to find a parking space downtown> — see annoyance.”]
Okay. Other annoyances that I AM NOT HOSTILE about. Comcast ‘guaranteed’ my dad a $99/month bundle fee. The past three months they have billed him $157, $167, $177, and now $183. Fortunately for them, they had too many phone calls, so I had to send them a NOT HOSTILE email.
Last night I was enjoying my bi-weekly pleasure of an internet ‘tv show’ on quilting. I can’t even blame this on Noah. I just fumbled and dropped my diet coke on the ethernet box. That was the end of the internet INSTANTANEOUSLY. No hostility involved here, because, well, you know where that hostility would have to be pointed. I was a wee bit testy with the internet people who never answer their phone. $100 later, I am able to sent NOT HOSTILE emails to whomever I please.
Okay. So the point of this post? Hmmm, I’m not sure. Well, I did not eat emotionally because of all the HOSTILITY I WAS NOT feeling. Pretty good, huh? I did have a beet salad, which Shelley might consider a hostile act.
Oh. Here’s what I really wanted to say. I decided to head on over to Bye Bye Pie and check out what June had to say. I thought that might cheer me up. And indeed it did. She is SOOOOOO funny. She had a post, mostly about her dog Talulah (who has her own facebook page–shhh, don’t tell Noah.)
I have an appointment with ‘my counselor’ Wednesday. Mostly to talk about why I should retire. I should retire before I am fired for sending NOT HOSTILE emails to anyone and everyone. Perhaps I should talk to my counselor about other people’s problems in properly identifying HOSTILITY.
Does this look like the face of a hostile person????
