Today was Eldest's 18th birthday. I took her to Disney.

We saw FOF. (That's the Festival of Fantasy Parade for you non-parkies.)

We also saw Neil Patrick Harris narrate the Candlelight Processional. 

It was legen-dary. 

And Eldest was so happy!Happy Birthday sweetie!

So, on Wednesday I was bitten by one of the dogs I babysit/housekeep for. Bluebell is cute, sweet looking and on Prednisone, which means she is in a constant state of hunger. She is on a specialized diet and all that makes her ravenous. My co worker was feeding the dogs as I was walking in to start my shift, and suddenly Bluebell decided to snap by attacking Stormy. An by attack , I mean she morphed into a pitbull! I had to shove my hand into Bluebell's mouth, pry her off Stormy's ear, then tackle Stormy to the kitchen floor and fall small on top of her to keep Bluebell from attacking her further! In that process, I got bit.

This is what it looked like on Wednesday after the attack. It was painful, but I know these dogs are vetted to within an inch of their lives AND we poured hydrogen peroxide over it while I loudly said many bad words.

This is what it looked like Thursday morning. It was more blue, swollen, and very painful.

And this is what it looked like at 3 PM. Very blue, very swollen, and OMG did it hurt!


That is all!

I must look like a doofus. A moron. A complete fool. Ignorant. Stupid.

No matter who I work with, or where I work at, it is always the case that people think I know nothing about cleaning or household care. I have been cleaning since the early 2000's. I can guarantee I have seen everything and cleaned it! Excrement? Check. Black mold? Check. Naked people who think it's ok to parade in while I'm scrubbing the toilet? Check. Sports figure who is a COMPLETE SLOB and leaves his jerk off lotion for me to dispose of? Yeah.... that too.

What really tweaks me is people think I am unintelligent and therefore being a housekeeper is the only job I could get. HA! I have been to college. I have GM'ed restaurants. I have run delis. I have had my own cleaning service AND I have run a cleaning service for someone. Hell, I won a Nattie Award!! Aside from those facts, I am a rabid pop culture fan. I used to read encyclopedias for run and information. Most days I can answer almost every Jeopardy question. I am a monster at Family Feud. I will google that shit and remember it forever!

After all that, it rubs me the wrong way when someone I work with thinks I'm a moron. One of the ladies was discussing the new Maleficent movie and I mentioned that she was a fairy, not an evil sorceress, and she turned to me with the most surprised look on her face and said, "Oh my gosh! How did YOU know that?"


Or when we were discussing movie themes and her phone rang off with the theme from Halloween. She apologized  saying, "I hope the Michael Myers theme didn't scare you." and I replied, "No. Tubular Bells is an iconic song." You'd have thought I rattled off the formula for world peace by the look on her face.  What the hell?!?

Then there's the questioning me when it comes to cleaning. The 'new' girl who works the big house mostly was talking to me like I was a noob about all the cleaning. I let her go on, but put a stop to it when she tried to explain why they leave the washer doors open in very small words. Ugh.... I know it molds.


Anywho.... Has anyone else ever had to work with people who assume you're an ignorant dolt? Just me? Damn.

Don't You Just Hate It When...

...the people who trained you at your job, all the while telling you how important every single step is to the well being of your job and you keeping said job, decide it's too much trouble for them to do said job when they are on shift so they leave every fucking thing for you to do? 

I SERIOUSLY hate that shit.

And THAT is how my Saturday went a work. How was yours?
