I have got SO MUCH to talk about today, including the homeless guy I gave a ride to yesterday and an expose of Natural Balance "Limited Ingredient" (HA!) cat food and possibly Freaky Friday, but first -
but FIRST -
Okay, back story, I got a raise yesterday. Yippee!, right? And I was talking to a dear friend on the phone last night, and we were just chatting away, and I mentioned that I! got! a! raise!, and do you know she said?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT SHE SAID?
Here's what she said upon learning that I got a raise:
"Really?", she sniffed. "You know, you're ALREADY overpaid, RockyCat."
What. the. f*ck.
Do you know what I make? DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MAKE?
I WILL TELL YOU. (CAPS LOCK ALERT! DANGER! DANGER!)
After thirty years in the workforce, twenty-three of them in a professional area, last year I took home a whopping
(ARE YOU READY? HERE IT COMES!)
And this woman, this dear friend, who I know for a fact made AT LEAST three times that before she retired, had the f*cking NERVE to tell me I'm overpaid.
Oh, my cheese is grated. I'm not even sure I can be friends anymore. Ooooooh, I'm a steamin'. Who SAYS shit like that?!
So! I will try to cram some more stuff up here later today, because, BOY, do I have a lot to talk about! Don't let me forget to tell you the story about the homeless guy!
