Shoot Me Please

I need someone to take mercy on me and put me out of my misery.  Worked til 11:15p last night..got a few hrs sleep and back up at 4:30.  At work now.  17 hour day yesterday...those are killers.  My eyes are burning and there's not enough make-up in the world to cover up the dark circles under my eyes.  I warned Billie as soon as I walked in the door to leave me alone today...that it's not gonna' be a good one.  Grrrr.  I miss sleep.


  1. This puts new meaning to the words SLAVE DRIVERS! I shit you not!

  2. Oh my gosh Tammy. I haven't had a chance to read your blog lately but I'm Sending you hugs. I hope you get some good sleep tonight. Try not to work so hard girl...

  3. Ugh! Major suckage. I am so sorry that they are driving you so hard. Just try to remember that on payday you can grin like a happy girl all the way to the bank. :D

    Hang in there. Hopefully things will ease up, soon. *hugs*

  4. Yikes, with all the money you are not spending you need to go on a serious VACATION!

  5. Well, you were the one that wanted a JOB.

    Hope things calm down soon...

  6. Absolutely not right. I care too much about you to not say that this is unacceptable for any human. Your boss needs a major shakedown, and I'd be glad to start the ball rolling.

  7. Honestly, it doesn't even seem ethical for your employers to demand these kinds of hours from you. I used to work at Starbucks part time and they had to be super careful about not scheduling closers to open the very next day--there had to be at least an 8 hour window until their next shift so that they got enough sleep.
    I think you prob might work longer hours than a lot of doctors or nurses out there!

  8. Hope you get a good nights sleep soon :)

  9. This is ridiculous Tammy, you are working for slave drivers and slavery was abolished a long long time ago. You are killing yourself and the money is not enough!!!

    Hugs, listen to your big sis ...



  10. Knock it off! Sorry, you know I am an encourager, but I had to get your attention.

    Who are you working yourself into the ground for? If for YOU, stop. If for the boss, stop. I'm askin' bc I'm kind of wondering if boss guy REALLY, literally demands and expects that much, or if Tammy thinks bc there is work to be done, one has to do it. (come hellerhighwater. Oh wait, that is why you have all these claims in the first place, hellenhighwater. SO sad.) You can't keep it up, dearie. I'm glad you are a hardworker, & I admire you work ethic. I have from way back when you had no job, but you desperately wanted one. The company knows you are a committed, dedicated, hardworking employee.

    Please realize you are human, you are valuable, and you MUST get some sleep & some eats. And clean clothes would be nice, I'm sure.


    I'm sad, bc I just realized you are probably too busy to read this. Maybe your Dad will read your post & be on the same page with me..maybe he can get you to make a change.

    sending love,
