Whoa so yesterday was pretty eventful. I was able to leave work for like 6 hours to go and sign up for a class. And to return books to another college where my original class was cancelled. I was so anxious bc I had to tell my boss what my intentions were and he was really cool about it. You can tell he values people going back to school to improve their education and blah blah blah.
But more shocking, the woman who works in our printing press ripped the top portion of her thumb off yesterday. She was awesome. She kept very calm (considering the circumstances). Everyone was fast in their decisions and she was able to get to a hospital in no time. I feel so bad for her bc her husband, according to everyone here, is a drunk and a low life. Not to mention he was drunk when he arrived at the hospital and claimed he had no money to get gas to go to the hospital where she is now. He doesnt work. He cant keep a job. What the heck? She needs someone there for support- emotionally, physically, and mentally- but he cant even do that. I dont know what they are going to do. She works here FT, works OT on Saturdays if needed and works a second job on Sundays.
Oh and today isnt going any better than yesterday. One of the other guys came in weepy this morning. His wife just asked for a divorce. This is the opposite of the thumb lady in that his wife doesnt work. They have 5 kids, 2 of which are biologically his. Apparently, she met someone new and there is no chance of reconciliation.
Is it a full moon or something? Our department is on its way to being emotionally drained. WTF?
