Ranting and Raving About Frustration, Concrete and Boredom

Today will make three weeks since I was offered and accepted the position with the city. As of today I still have yet to finalize my on-boarding, sign any paperwork or hear back from the human resources people. I’ve emailed, called and emailed again over and over and still nothing even though I was given a start date of April 4th. The last call I was on the HR lady told me I should be receiving an email with some forms to fill out and send back regarding W-2, direct deposit and other information. Well as of today, NOTHING and I’m kind of getting a bit pissed off and not to mention antsy about this entire on-boarding process. The university of Hell didn’t take this long to get someone hired and in their role working. I have an appointment with HR on Thursday morning, I was told I had to make sure to send in those “forms” prior to my HR appointment. How the fuck can I do this when I can’t get anyone to call me the fuck back?? I need to get to work, I need a steady source of income because my fucking unemployment benefits have been consistently late since I filed my claim! This never-ending red tape is driving me completely mad. And I”m not using that metaphorically either, I’m going crazy constantly waiting for someone to get back to me about my benefits, my new job or whatever!!

Because I Needed An Outlet

Because I got to the point of epic frustration and not having any results or answers, I took to cleaning my back yard and prepping to plant some foliage, herbs and veggies. But after my fourth call to the HR department and voicemail I was so pissed off at not getting a response from anyone, I began to tear out the concrete that covers most of my back yard. First of all, I have an in-ground pool thats been filled in with dirt. Yes people I know what an abomination that is and that’s why I didn’t mention it when I first posted that I had bought my house. It’s filled in with dirt, rocks and paving stones similar to the ones I took out of the front of my yard. It’s downright damned ugly, and I wanted to hire someone to break up the concrete pool deck that surrounds the dirt pool. But after the frustration of not being able to get ahold of anyone to help me with my late unemployment or from the HR department at the city, I took a pick axe and pry bar to the concrete in my back yard myself. The only positive thing was the outlet of rage and feelings of stagnation and boredom I released by breaking something apart that is a complete eyesore. First of all I couldn’t believe how easy it was (or maybe it was the anger) to just take to the concrete and break it apart. Oh what am I saying? Who ever decided to put concrete in the back yard didn’t know what they were doing. They probably got some drunk uncle and cousins to come and do it on a couple of weekends because it’s completely half-assed. If it had been done properly I wouldn’t have had such an easy time breaking it apart. I’ll keep things posted on how my progress is going.

What the Fuck is Wrong with Will Smith?!?!?!

No, I didn’t see the Oscars because to me it’s a waste of time and energy to sit there and watch all these people with more money that I have pretend to have it hard. But I get notifications from the New York Times and I was already in bed when I saw that this had happened. First of all, Jada Pinkett-Smith is barely an actress let alone anyone someone should consider important. If anyones seen her Red Table Talks, she constantly talks about the “love of her life” Tupac Shakur. Yes, it’s not Will Smith people that’s for damned sure. She criticizes Smith for not knowing what she wants or needs. Now, this is why I was shocked at this and because I’m bored and have to bitch about something that’s not about my new job or unemployment benefits or how I haven’t been out of my house in almost a week and I’m going completely crazy being here with a snarky ass cat who has decided to take out everything that’ s in the cabinet under the sink for an entire week straight!!!! Anyway back to the Oscars debacle, violence in any shape or form should not be condoned especially if one who is held in such high standards as someone who is a public figure (sort of) or a respectable celebrity . If you can’t take the heat then maybe you should have reconsidered your profession. Jokes aimed at celebrities are par for the course and there is a high price to pay for fame. So, my opinion on the matter? I think that Will Smith should have his Oscar taken away, and banned from attending the Oscars or SAGs in the future. But then again another so called celebrity (Whoopi Goldberg) who I dare even call a celebrity, said that Governing Board of the Oscars wouldn’t take the award away from Will Smith. Well then what a way to teach him a lesson….don’t you think? Anyway this is my rant for this week.

Until next time……this is the Huntress, saying…”Don’t be a Moth Around a Dim Yellow Bulb, Be a Moth to a Flame, Make it worth the Burn!”

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. I hope you took behind and after pics of your cement nightmare. When things are settled and everything is looking wonderful you’ll want them to laugh about. As for the firms, that’s incredibly frustrating but not surprising with city government. Is there a local office you can visit in person to request them? Bring that pick ax, you might need it.

    1. I have begun to take pictures, I want to document how much my house has changed since I bought it, or if I decide to sell it later on. No local unemployment office anymore, everything’s done online. Which is frustrating enough as it is and forget about calling…
      🙄.

      1. There is, I have to be there on Thursday. So I’ll just tell them that I haven’t gotten anything via email. I have yet to connect with anyone in my department because I haven’t finalized my on-boarding 😡.

  2. How very kind of Charlie to take everything out from under the counter to help distract you from the many things frustrating you and going wrong. It just demonstrates anew our feline friends’ thoughtful, caring, clever nature.

    Cheers

    1. Lmao….well I never thought about it that way. I suppose your right it was a distraction, he’d thrown (don’t ask me how) a nip mouse into the back of the under sink cabinet. That’s what he’d been looking for all week.

  3. What the hell is taking those people so long? Is that the incompetence you’ll have to deal with working for the city? YIKES!

    I can’t wait to see pics of what you’ve done with your yard when you’re finished. I bet you felt a lot of stress leave your body after breaking up all that concrete! 🙂

    As for Will Smith, I have lost respect for the big baby! Not because he was defending his wife, but because of what he did. How classless is the person who goes up on stage to smack someone? IMO he should have let Jada decide how SHE wanted to handle that situation. It is HER story, HER alopecia, after all. I think they could have both taken the high road because as you mentioned, that’s what comedians do. If you can’t take it then boohoo. Celebs these days wouldn’t be able to handle comedians like Don Rickles and Joan Rivers!! They were brutal and everyone knew it was all in fun!

    1. I sure hope not because if that’s how things happen, I need to start looking elsewhere. But I’m thankful right now just to have a job. I definitely want to redo my back yard because it’s a concrete mess with a pool full of dirt 😡. Yes, Celebes now a days, I loved Don Rickles, especially in CPO Sharkey, remember? He was straightforward and brutal, but it was all in fun. I couldn’t stand a Joan Rivers she just rubbed me the wrong way..lol.

      1. Lol. When I was young, I didn’t like Don Rickles. I just thought he was mean. Now, I wish he were still with us so he could do his thing with the Smith/Rock incident! Joan Rivers rubbed me the wrong way, too. But she knew how to line ’em up and knock ’em out!

  4. Hopefully you’ve heard from them by now, since it’s now Thursday! 😲

    A dirt filled pool? How weird! Good job going full-on Hulk Hogan on the surround…looking forward to the before and after shots!

    I am ambivalent about the Will Smith thing. I just don’t really care about it. Who am I to judge him?

  5. I need to see pictures of your fine handiwork! And I hope things went well on Thursday, although I haven’t read your most recent post (that’s next) so I guess I’ll find out! As for the ‘slap’, what’s this “Jada has been very open about her struggles with alopecia so Chris should have known better” bullshit? Does Chris Rock spend all his time reading celeb gossip magazines? I didn’t know she had alopecia–I thought she’d shaved her head for a movie role, because I don’t have time to be constantly reading about celebrities, and honestly if Ken ever did anything like that, I’d slap HIM!

    1. I haven’t taken any pictures of the cakes…..I can’t wait long enough before I cut into it, lol. But my next one will have a picture 😉. I think Jada Pinkett Smith is a hoe…..she’s married to Will Smith and completely breaks him down every chance she gets and she’s claimed he’s not even the love of her life. And he’s still there, why? No clue, we all know he’s the real star of the two.
