FML! The adventure continues

OK-is this irony or just fucking stupidity?



I'm just arriving at the BART station, about three blocks from my apartment, when it suddenly occurs to me that I don't have my security card to get into the office. I'm working Christmas Eve, even though my ACCOUNT is closed and the office I work in is closed and there will be absolutely no way in and out with out the beep-beep card.

The "irony" possibility comes from the fact that just as this thought hit me, I was busy mentally phrasing my resolution "To stop going through life like a fucking ditz and expecting the benevolence of the universe to rescue me."

So---three blocks back to the apartment (with bag of supplies to get through day, and change of clothing for post-gym) where the card does NOT appear in the usual places I tend to put it. I try not to freak out, although at this point it's damn hard, since it's not like I want to work today, but I'm basically being bullied into it. (I offered to be off without pay.) And I feel like they know they can bully me because I'm so guilt ridden over all the screw-ups.

Then on a weird hunch, I checked in my actual wallet, you know, where a sane person might keep their very important security card, but I never do. And it was there. Where I have absolutely no memory of putting it.

I want to get my shit together, really I do, but my brain and especially my hypoglycemia are fighting me at every turn.

You're not the only person who does this -- I've flat out stopped using a glasses case, because when I have used a glasses case, I've wound up 'losing' my glasses. (It's part of the never-put-anything-in-a-safe-place-you'll-never-see-it-again contingency.)

IKR? I try to keep everything either out in plain sight or in the same pocket of my coat. I get in trouble when I have to switch bags or something.

I rue the day I have to change anything about my house or routine -- it means something will get lost in the shuffle, and I won't know what until after it's too late.

I desperately need SOME way to remember that I have to log out of the new "big brother" phones that management is using to track our actual work hours.

It's just not something I think of doing when I'm trying to get out of the office and my blood sugar is plummenting.

Thanks, sweetie. There's an update on the missed ticket refund, but I don't feel like going into it right now. There'll be another post about that.
