I can't belive this! Thank you!!

Over the past few days I have been given a few awards & I have to take a minute to thank everyone & do the tags for them. =) I actually took off today from work because I needed a break from all of it. After my boss pranked called my office phone because a fellow employee told him like a jerk, "It would be funny"...I decided I couldn't deal with them one day this week. My boss apologized but I was upset. I will deal with this issue in person on Monday. It's beyond respect now, and things have to change. I can't afford to lose my job right now or my health insurance so I will take a professional action. I never thought I'd say this but, "I wish I had a cubicle". It would give me a lil privacy & a small filter of the stupidity.

Also I'm going to be calling Mr. Platform. I realized he has not rescheduled his party yet. I want to meet him more so in my life than ever. Even if he just becomes just a friend it would still make me happy.

Well on a lighter note the awards have just cheered me up so much. Thank you thank you. Here we go with them.

I just want to give everyone warmfelt Cyber *Hug* to all of you. Thank you for the awards & your comments to my last post on Respect. Respect is a hard topic & I admire all of you for trying to help me out. I will take everyone of your answers to heart, even the ones where you told me to kick the snot out of them. hehe. =)

I think I'm going to be creating my own award to & debut it next week. It will be a very generic, "Tough Cookie" Award so men & women can accept it. I will be designing it over the week & will debut it.

In my day off I went out to lunch with my cousin & I'm going to see the movie Up in the Air tonight with my friend Erin. Just trying to get my mind off it. I will deal with my job on Monday. I'll let you know what happens. Til Tomorrow...

Thanks again!!

Congrats! Have a great weekend!

Barry said...

Melanie, everyone deserves to be treated with respect. Doesn't matter who or where it is.

I've always admired that you work to change things in your life that you're not happy with, instead of just complaining. And I love that you're facing this situation head-on.

We don't talk much by e-mail but you know I'm always here if you want to vent, swear, or just chat. You're a wonderful person. ♥

Thank you for the award, I'll definitely post it and answer the questions.

Leah said...

Congrats on the awards Melanie. And thanks for sharing the "Over the Top" award with me and major thanks that it's okay not to do the one word thingy. Hahaha!

I'm so excited to hear your story about Mr Platform... everytime I read his name in your post, I get super excited. I'm a huge fan right? xoxo

P said...

Congrats on your awards. It's amazing how better getting them can make a person feel isn't it? Sometimes I think I appreciate recognition from the blogger world more than people in real life. Maybe that's just cos I feel like I express myself better here...

Melanie, now you can have a great weekend, you see that you are popular, well liked!

Congratulations, you deserve them.

Wow just catchin up on the whole respect at work thing. That is not cool at all and I def don't blame you for taking the day off. Is there someone above your boss you can talk to? Like a human resource manager or something? I know I'm a new reader and you may have already been over this but just thought I would check. Congratulations on all the awards! Things will get better, continue to think positive!

Have a good weekend.. Oh and we watched disc 1 and some of disc 2 of SOfA so far and like it! :)

Heather Rose said...

Beautiful, glamorous and over the top. I think that sums you up pretty well! ^_^

Thanks for nominating me for the Over The Top Blog Award! I am so passing it on tonight, questions answered and all.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about the Happy Award you asked me to pass along. I am planning on doing that one tomorrow!

Oh man, your coworkers sound horrendous! i cannot believe your boss is in on this BS. I'm so sorry, you must say something though.

I really liked up in the air, enjoy!

Denysia said...

Thank you for the award! :) That's messed up what your boss did! If that ever happened to me, I would be super pissed off!

angel6033 said...

you are oh so welcome, and I am so happy that you passed on the glamourous award to me, thank you girly!! :) I am glad you ahd a day off to catch up with all your awards lol and even enjoy a movie! :)

Bathwater said...

You don't want to hide in a cubicle and it is a good idea to call Mr. Platform.

Valerie said...

Congrats on your awards lady!! You deserve them :)

The Coffee Cup said...

So many things to say!!

1. It is not cool to work with jerks. It makes a job work; it makes you not want to get up to go to work.

2. Congratulations on all of your awards. You are definitely a beautiful blogger, and your blog is certainly glamorous and over the top. The Coffee Cup is also working on an award for next week. You should get ready for more awards!

3. I saw Up in the Air last night. I love planes, which is the main reason I went to watch it. However, I did not like the movie. I don't understand why I do not like movies that are likely to get nominated for the Oscars. I am watching Avatar 3D this weekend. I will let you know what I think about that one. Let me know if you liked Up in the Air.

I hope you can deal with your job situation this Monday. For now, enjoy your weekend.

Buenos deseos,
