Looks Like SOMEONE'S Got a Case of the Mondays!!

No, man...

Shit... no, man....

I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man...

But that's me.  Recovering from a SERIOUS case of the Monday's.

Why?

Well, my Monday started like this:

I pack and get ready to leave for the week to Salt Lake, Nevada, and parts unknown.  I walk the dog, and take off.  But whoops, forget to load shit into my car.

Strike one.

My car breaks down.  AGAIN.  It died a week ago in Billings.  It took the dealership 3 days (and $700+) to fix the car.  Same exact problem with the radiator blowing.  This time, instead of city limits, I'm in the middle of nowhere.  And my engine seizes.  I'm supposed to be picking someone up at the SLC airport, and now I'm 4 hours delayed.

Strike two.

I get to the dealership, tell them they're going to fix the car at no cost (since the first dealership didn't do it right) and get them to put me into a rental car so I can continue on my trip.  They stick me in a rental with a half-flat tire, hoping I wouldn't notice.  I make them fix it, which delays me another half hour.

I'll count that one as strike 2.5....

The rest of the day isn't bad.  I meet my counterpart, hit up some stops in SLC, and then drive to Elko.  We book at this "vintage" hotel/casino....

  • The rooms are haggard
  • The carpets are stained.  Badly.
  • She sees dried blood on her walls.  I see dried boogers on mine.
  • We have Refridgerators instead of refrigerators.  And apparently refridgerators don't refridgerate very well (mine's warm).
  • Best of all.  No hot water.  Apparently instead of water heaters the hotel gets hot water from a geothermal area in the city.  And the city is having issues.  

"I'm sorry, sir... you should have hot water by midnight tonight, or sometime tomorrow in the early AM..."

So this is me at the moment... while typing this post.   It was a 14 hour day of frustration and disappointment, mingled in with a little bit of fun and jokes.

For the most part, my blood pressure was spiked.  I wanted to kick a little kitten through the goalpost uprights.  Twice.

I'm starting to calm down a little, but I'm really REALLY hoping Tuesday is a better day than Monday was....

So... on that note... how YOU doin??

Brandini. Tough start to the week. I'll get Gram to send you a bottle of her special potion she calls "Fuck Monday Afore Monday Fucks You."

It won't change the events that are out of your control, but you'll be so hammered you simply won't give a shit.

Need more on the blood stains.

Zombie said...

every day I have to work is a case of the mondays for me. lol.

Random Girl said...

Nothing says welcome home like a cold shower and blood stains. Well with a Monday like that, it can only get better from there. It's fact.

Haven said...

Maybe you should think of the tire as half full instead of half flat =) Yikes!

Dreamer said...

Hope you didn't pop a blood vessel or anything. By the sounds of it things couldn't get much worse!!

squatlo said...

You could share a room and get bloody booger stains... just sayin'.

Our old truck just failed emissions testing, which means we have a few days to locate and pay for repairs, then get retested in time to get tags before they expire. Yippee! And it didn't fail because it was belching pollutants, it failed because there weren't enough coming out of the tailpipe to suit the little man with the diagnostic hose. Apparently, if you don't have enough crap coming out of the ass of your car or truck, that means something's wrong, too.

Heavy fucking sigh...

Hope your week improves. No hot water? Blood stains? Refridgerators? What part of Alabama are you in???

D4 said...

Silver lining. Makes for a pretty good blog post! Right? Right?

Lady Estrogen said...

Sorry you had such a shitty day!

Pickleope said...

You sir have earned the right to kick the aforementioned kitten. Heck, go nuts and smash that refridgerator to bits, Office Space style.

my day in a sentence said...

Well, it's a Monday. It's supposed to be bad. :D :S

MRanthrope said...

well, at least someone didn't fuck with your favorite red stapler. ha

Shutterbug said...

Mondays aren't always fun. Hope the rest of the week goes better for you! :D

AllenTesch said...

I had a real hankering for whole milk, but only had 2 percent.

Really pissed me off.

Al Penwasser said...

Yikes! Dried boogers on the walls is probably better than what's dried on your TV remote (don't let any CSI guys point a blue light at it).
I am curious about one thing, though. Why did you load shit into your car? They didn't have any where you were going?

The Frisky Virgin said...

I gasped in horror over the hot water. I have an evil hot water tank that loves to drop it cold when I least expect it.

Just tell me the the hotel dude didn't in any way resemble the guy from Psycho. 'Cause if he did, I'd get the hell out of there.

I hope your week is better. *Hugs*

BTW--Cam Newton is the real deal.

Technosauce said...

Mondays, not that bad, but I can agree on some of those mondays.

Mama Spaghetti said...

Well, I'll wish you a better Wednesday since Tuesday's over now. So, hope you have a better Wednesday.

Also, I grew up in Elko. Like...I lived there from 2nd through 12th grade. I hope that doesn't decrease my awesomeness...

LogAllot.com said...

LMAO! Oh man that really sucked. I just back from Utah 2 weeks ago (Vacation) and all the road work on the freeways drove us crazy. It was like it never ended, but man talk about a bad day.

That's my biggest fear is being stuck in some backwoods town and I am black! Scary thought (no offense to anyone) but I have seen enough movies to wonder. Luckily we rented a car from Budget and didn't have any issues the entire trip.

Here's to a better weds!

Mynx said...

I think I am really late because it is now wednesday evening here.
Hope your week has improved because I really like kittens and hate the idea of you kicking them

Bart said...

Adsila said...

I love that movie....very funny. Sorry you had a shitty week so far. Hopefully things will get better. BTW, my week is going fine, thank you very much.

Alice X said...

Mondays are the pits! I feel your pain. I also hate Monday eve (Sunday night) i get the Sunday blues knowing that a week of drudgery is ahead. Chin up. Also thanks for being such an EPIC LEGEND and voting for me multiple times. I need all the help i can get, the blogs i'm up against will probably get tons of votes.

Thank You

I have just the thing for that. A blog award. For you, that is.

A Beer for the Shower said...

Wow, that's rough. Nothing's worse than a hotel that looks nothing like what you expected. We once went to a hotel that looked nothing like the pictures online. First off, it was a 2 floor motel, not a hotel, and our room had a hole in the wall where someone punched it.
