If You're Hurt At Work...

I wish you could see me right now, I'm sitting at my desk with my legs up on one of the extra chairs that we having floating around the office because around 9:40am my right patella decided to pop out on me. Unfortunately when this all happened I was alone with "Julia" who asked me only once if I was okay and she did it between me crying out in pain and screaming fuck (Which apparently "Mini Page" heard from the stacks). Obviously she wasn't getting an answer out of me while I had my head on my desk and I was clutching my knee.

About ten minutes go by, with me still in the same position, before she says anything else to me. She tell me that she needs to leave the building to do a program and asks if I'll be okay to cover the desk. I really had to try hard not to start screaming and cursing at her. I said no, she needs to call adult for coverage because there was no way in hell that I was moving from where I was. Did she call? I didn't see her. All I saw her do was wander away. Thankfully this all happened at the comfort of my desk and my cell phone was right next to me. I text Lenni and called Head Clerk's cell to see if she could help me. When she answered she was outside of the building but she was right in front talking to "Amy" so she sent her straight up.

So, for the past four hours I've been in the same spot. Why haven't I gone home you ask? The elevator is still out of commission from the freak fire alarm situation yesterday and there is no way I'm gonna tackle those stairs right now with all of the bags that I have with me. For now I'll just sit her at my desk, pretending to do work until it's time to go home.

I'll keep you up-to-date if anything else fun happens.
