Whine Fest 2010

Hello and welcome to Whine Fest 2010! Since my last post (which was basically a spewing of verbal venom) attracted so much attention, I thought that I would continue down the path of negativity. I know, I know it does get old doesn't it? But I figure I have one or two pessimistic posts left before you all shake your heads in disgust and navigate away from getrealmama forever.

So here goes:

  • The chaos at home continues, no improvement on that front.

  • A bottle of diet coke came open in my purse today, destroying both my cell phone and my digital camera. Keep in mind that I replaced my cell phone only a couple of months ago when it was ripped off on the BART. In order to replace the phone I ended up signing a ridiculous contract so that I am now stuck with Verizon for a few more years, and I will likely have to buy the same crappy phone for another $300. Meanwhile I am left stranded and isolated with out my beloved mobile phone. I don't even know my husband's number, it's programmed into the device, I never dial it.

  • I am working at a Starbucks because my in laws are visiting and there is no peace at home. It is a beautiful sunny, warm day outside, which means Starbucks turns up their air conditioning to an icy 20 below zero. Meanwhile I am sitting next to two crazy old men who are about to get in a fist fight because one person has a stack of old magazines taking up half the table and annoying the other person. I kid you not. They were actually yelling at each other. I thought the cops might come and break up the geriatric fight.

  • I am stuck on one of my searches for work, and for the life of me cannot seem to find a senior account executive with brand experience in the whole bay area. How hard can it be?Have I totally lost my touch? Good lord I'm going to get fired people!

Okay, that 's probably about enough whine for today. Until tomorrow. Kidding. Sort of.


  1. Awww sorry to hear about your phone. I seem to have bad luck with phones...never fails, I end up spilling something on them or loosing them all together. And I have been stuck with a company I really don't like either for at least 3 years now because of it, lol. *sighs* I can relate to your post on so many different levels.

    Hope your day is better tomorrow ;)

  2. hehe. Love your blog. Yes, even the negativity is a breathe of fresh air sometimes. Newest follower :)

    Check out my page if you get a chance...

  3. A few years ago, I spent a ridiculous amount of hours studying for the bar at our Local Starbucks. It was way more interesting to watch people than study, let me tell you. (I also got some really cute Christmas mugs on clearance!). I hear you about the AC - in the winter, they crank the heat. Crazy...
    Why are you looking for a senior account executive?

  4. Thank goodness for Starbucks! I hope you had a moment to think and have a great cup of coffee. Hope things get a little less stressful! have a great night!

  5. Pessimism is great. You make the rest of us feel like we are not alone in our awful times!

  6. When it rains, it pours.... and in your case it appears to be Diet Coke! I would totally send you a DQ Blizzard, if you weren't so far away & I'd get in trouble for shipping with dried ice.

    Tomorrow can only get better, right?
