This is my rant of the moment. Bear with me. It's nothing life-threatening, and I apologize for being out of sorts, but it's still irritating.
So this is what you do this week if you are me:
1. Pick up your coffee 3/4 of the way to work (11 miles in thick traffic) and find out, the hard way, that the coffee drive through didn't put on the lid all the way. Get mocha all over your beige skirt. Call your boss and tell him you need to go home and change. Hear your boss laugh and say OK, as long as you send pictures of the mess.
2. Spend time agonizing over a letter from the IRS that says they haven't received your tax payment, which you made 2 months ago. Spend lots - and LOTS - of time on hold (total of more than an hour) on multiple calls, after going through literally a dozen menus to get a live person, and on the first of these calls, have your cell phone drop the call after the agent tells you everything is OK and you don't owe and you can disregard the notice. Call back just in case and their computer systems are down. Call back again just in case, and find out that the guy didn't finalize fixing the ridiculous glitch (more on that in a moment) even after he said he did "because the call is lost."
About as helpful as...
And the explanation? "The payment was applied to your husband's account, and you are listed as the main account holder."
Account? Like a drug store? We filed jointly, paid jointly, and then jointly received a bill saying we owed what we had already paid. Both of our names. On. Everything.
Somehow, even though we paid, and his "account" got credited, both of us still officially owed, until they unfucked it. I hope.
Does this sound like bullshit or a computer glitch to you? Or both?
4. Have one of your colleagues refuse to attend your meeting or send her staff because another one is going to be there. I thought we had finished kindergarten?
And it's not even Monday!
I am just tired as fuck after all of this, as ridiculous as that sounds. How's your week going?
