I don't mind getting into trouble if I've done something wrong. I really hate getting into trouble if someone else has done something wrong.
Anyway, you probably have a million better things to do then hear me groan about people at work. Frankly, I'm damned lucky to be employed at all:
Thank-you for this job and the fact that it lets me write.
Speaking of writing, I'm not doing too badly on the word count front. Just 3 000 more words today and I'm done for the week. Let's hope I get them all done today. Having tomorrow off would be lovely.
I suppose I really ought to get on with it. With luck, work will be better today and I'll be able to concentrate!
Have a good Thursday everyone!
