I hate it when people do that…

Know what I hate? When you are sick – sick, sick, sick – and you don’t *want* to drive an hour to go see someone and they try to guilt you into it anyways. “You said if you weren’t doing something you would do something with me.” Well, I will, if you drive up here because I am SICK and can barely see straight and I am struggling to get work done because of deadlines and I really want to just curl up and sleep. Drive over to my place and I will spend as much time with you as you like. “I feel like I am being shafted.” Well, ummm, no, to be honest I said that I would *see* about doing something if my original plans fell through, it was YOU who decided I would definately drive to see you. I had no idea over a week ago that I would be sick today. I have a zillion things to do here at home; I promised Jason we would go to see Cats & Dogs. I haven’t even finished unpacking from vacation yet! Come see me … the door is open. Otherwise, at this point in time I am SICK and on top of that stressing over trying to figure out how I am going to do all that needs to be accomplished this weekend. I don’t feel like spending 2 hours in the car plus time away from home when I feel as horrible as I do.

I HATE it when people try to use the guilt tactic on you. I hate it when I tell someone “sure, maybe we can do something” and they act as though it is written in stone and tell you that you are shafting them if you say you don’t want to do anything because you are SICK. I hate that! I would be understanding if we had made plans. I didn’t, but if you ask her I guess I did. Never mind the fact that I have invited her over numerous times, including last weekend, and she won’t take me up on it. I am not leaving the comforts of home while sick like this. If it wasn’t for projects that had to move out today I probably wouldn’t have even gotten out of bed this morning.

For the record, it takes a lot to make me angry. THAT makes me angry though. I am sick, it’s not like I said I had better things to do. I have mom things to do, and I have to get well. Nothing else. Ugh. Whatever.

That is the end of my rant for now. Exhausted sick person, off to focus on work so she can leave and go home & curl up and sleep until this ick feeling goes away… Thank you for listening.
