Oh, No, Not Again!

Here we go again. UPS lost one of "Butt Wipe's" packages, and he's sending out his paranoid vibe again. No one else is in the office but me and him, and I have that sinking feeling in my stomach that he's going to come yell at me. My ulcer is churning in my stomach. I feel like I'm going to be sick. I was originally planning on staying late at work, but now I don't think so!

He can't yell at me too much, though. I printed out proof that UPS is the one who lost the shipment. So far as we can tell, nothing fell out of it, they just lost it at the sorting facility in Houston, TX. So, he can't blame me for this. Although, the last one wasn't totally my fault either, and he still tried to get me fired. In my paranoia over the last episode, I had been using my camera phone to take photographs of the samples when he gives them to me and when I send them out. Unfortunately, the one they lost is the one that I couldn't photograph because my cell battery died. Isn't that always the way it works?!

Dear Jesus, please help me to not lose my temper, and to not be eaten from the inside out by my ulcer. Please, Lord, help this person to see that he shouldn't be blaming me and trying to get me fired. Please, take the burden of this stress off my shoulders, and help me to remember that no matter what happens, You are always with me. Instead of cringing and crying over the past, please help me deal with the present and look forward to the future. Please help us to resolve this matter with the minimum amount of recriminations and histrionics. All these things I pray in Your name, Amen.

Any word on the package or Butt-Wipe's demeanor today?

Package still lost. Butt-wipe didn't come in to work Friday. He decided at the last minute to go see his sister instead. No one was in the office Friday, and my boss forgot that I had to leave early on Friday, so when I called him to remind him of it, he told me to lock up the office and change the greeting on the phone system to let people know we were closing early. Woo hoo! Office closed at 1:30 on a Friday. Now that's nice.

What's not so nice... Cough is now actually getting worse, after a brief period of being better, and I'm often left gasping for air. Calling the doc today to see what else can be done.
