  • It's Monday, nuff said.

  • Health Care Reform inspired mania has reached the herd in my office. These are mature women, who, for the most part, are very intelligent. However, one of them announced that if the Health Care Reform is passed, our massive health system will most likely close its doors. It seems that the Democrats will insist that every institution that qualifies for and accepts Medicare and Medicaid, will be required to perform abortions. Since we are employed by a Catholic organization, we cannot and will not perform abortions, which means we will lose our Medicare/Medicaid status and will be forced to close. *sigh* And these women actually BELIEVE this shit.

  • After listening (not arguing or even commenting) to that lunacy for most of the morning, I decided take a walk on my lunch break. I walked to a nearby restaurant and just sat quiety. While hiking back to the office, the skies opened and drenched me thoroughy. The wind was unbelievable and kept whipping water in my face. My contacts lost contact and I was nearly blind. Once inside the buidling, I actually had to pour water out of my shoes. One of these days, I will remember to take a change of clothes to the office, so that in cases like this, I will have something dry to wear.

  • All the ladies in my office thought it was hilarious that I was wet and cold. Just one more reason for me to hate them!

Okay, enough whining and complaining. I'm home and dry, there is a True Blood replay on HBO, and I have no reason to be unhappy anymore. I hope everyone has a lovely evening.

Today wasn't what I would call a great one. I managed to get to the office without my phone and the Archos. No unmonitored internet use, no text messages, no tweets.

My supervisor learned about an "up front rejection report" last night that none of us had been working. I spent most of the morning gaining access to this report, including several calls to IS, a tech coming in to map the drive on my computer, receiving security clearance so I could view the report, only to find out that it was not pertinent to my office's responsibilities.

Additionally, today was my turn to work the billing questions email list. I had three separate requests from clinics asking me to research and resubmit every charge a particular patient had incurred since March, 2008.

Did I mention that it rained most of the day? Did I mention that I didn't win the lottery?

I managed to make it through without raising my voice or hurting anyone. When I arrived home, there was a message on my phone telling me the car was going to be MUCH LESS expensive to repair than originally quoted, and it should be ready tomorrow. Aside from the inconvenience of not having it, I'm very pleased.

So, while it wasn't a great day, it ended up pretty doggone good.

I actually constructed a huge, spleen-venting post, but realized it was in excess of five pages, so I thought I'd save you all the aggravation and just cut to the chase.

I need a job where I can do exactly as I please in regard to my job duties, and if someone in another department has a question, suggestion, or a beef about it, my supervisor will jump in their sh*t with both feet!

Honestly, what's not to love about a job that eliminates all responsibility for one's actions. I want to tell someone else to research and correct my mistakes.

Having said that, I will now practice a little trick I learned from [info] - personalvickita about 12-13 years ago. I shall take several deep, cleansing breaths and allow the experience to wash over me while concentrating on the three day hollerday weekend.

Hope everyone eats plenty of cheezburgers and potaytoe salid and has a wonderful time!
