Wow, all the comments on the last post were great! I didn’t realize so many people would comment. heh heh It was great reading all the stories. Thanks to everyone who shared.
I had a bit of a rough week. Work wasn’t overly busy but the drama over the City’s budget deficit continues. Not surprisingly, the City is facing one of the largest budget shortfalls in its entire history. The state isn’t doing so well either. I’ll be the first to admit the City’s paryoll is significant. SF has 1 civil servant for every 5 citizens. That is a lot by any standard. I’m grateful to have a job so I won’t bore you with all the stuff they are trying to take away from us. And while I’d never support anyone getting laid off, it may come to that. My department is somewhat immune to layoffs but it isn’t written in stone. Its gonna get uglier for sure.
On top of that, the land my dad left my brothers and I has hit yet another snag. I’m not sure why I’m surprised but this one is a doozy. So much so, it may take us years to resolve it. Ugh. Blood-suckng attorneys and their double-speak really pisses me off too. Why can’t they just speak frakin’ English! So now,not only am I broke but I have no equity to show for it. Lovely.
As if my own drama wasn’t enough, my soon-to-be ex roomie has been irritating the hell out of me. He can’t manage his finances for shit and has been dragging me along for the ride. He hasn’t even paid rent yet and had the fucking audacity to ask me for money! We had a few “words”. On the off-hand chance he doesn’t move, it is time for another come-to-Jesus meeting when he gets back. I’m done giving him breaks. He can either start pulling his own weight or get out. And if he does move, I’ve decided to proceed with finding another roomie.
And to top it all off, the weather has been down right shitty today. Oh well, I guess we do need the rain, even if it is a bummer. I’m doing lunch and a movie w/my buddy Juan tomorrow to take my mind off things.
