This is a rant....leave your own in the comments!
I’m pouting. About everything. But mainly I’m so...just distressed at the bullshit right now. Every goddamn company is putting out plinky piano ads about how they’re with us during this difficult time. Great! Fabulous! Too bad every grocery store near me has raised prices on everything. Too bad my state which made a big deal about mortgage relief hasn’t done shit for renters. (I’ve written my reps both state and federal to suggest that rents be frozen until this time in 2021 so that we aren’t faced with higher rates during renewals and have to try to find a new place during a pandemic with shittier credit than normal. It’s seriously the very fucking least they can do. I expect they won’t because the real estate lobby gives them all that sweet sweet cash) Too bad the Congress thinks that $1200 solves everyone’s problems and they need to focus on the real victims like banks. Too bad my client wants to pay me off the books and simultaneously save herself money by not paying the full contract rate (my friends are all like you don’t owe the company anything! and I’m like I don’t fucking owe my client anything either kids.)
I should be glad to be working a little right? I should be pulling up my bootstraps and making bread and learning all these amazing new skills so I can be a better employee, more desirable and desperate for the crumbs future employers feel like dropping. I should be grateful our moron president isn’t setting off a nuclear bomb to cleanse the virus from the country (although I’m sure he would if someone on Fox suggested it).
Gah. This post brought to you in part by my crappy uninsulated building which somehow vents all the smoke and cooking smells through my apartment. Currently contemplating throwing things out my window just to see what happens.
