So far, at least.
Before I even get to work I have an email from the boss. I normally don’t look at these, in fact my work iPhone is set to do not disturb when I leave work. So I don’t actually see this beautiful, wonderful, golden brown delicious email until I’m already at work.
It says, Jerk Boss needs me to go to the semi-abandoned building and do various near useless things. Then I may as well go to the Vancouver AND Troutdale buildings as well.
That’s at least three hours there.

I get to work and Jerk Boss is in a meeting. Coworker says he has to take me to the 3 other small buildings we maintain to familiarize me with them. I’ll have to cover them while he’s on vaca next week.
One’s in Troutdale.
One’s in Vancouver.
One is abandoned but we’re contractually obligated to spend 2 hours a day there while the boiler is for some reason running.

First Thursday drankin’ with the furriners and I forgot to do my Alka-Seltzer. As usual it’s my stomach that suffered more, putting breakfast burrito day in jeopardy. I hate when breakfast burrito day is endangered.
Then Vancouver texts and calls to say the boss (who’s already effed up a good portion of my summer) was reminded of a project he’d forgotten about. So Vancouver started antagonizing him. Sigh.
We’ve received 4 work orders already.
But it’s raining (yay!), and this breakfast burrito is making my stomach feel better (whew!). There’s a chance I might be (or look) busy enough all day to avoid the boss. Maybe today won’t suck after all.

I caused some distress to an innocent family out on an evening perambulation. (you may have to zoom in a bit here)
