Teapot Gets Cockblocked (and other frustrations)

A week or so ago I wrote about my new admirer, the Teapot. Well, today Teapot called the office to make sure I had gotten the insurance info that I needed from him (but he was actually delighted to have an excuse to talk to me). And my boss totally knew Teapot wanted to talk to me so he stood there dramatically chatting away even after I returned to my desk and sat there staring at him. Teapot is leaving for two weeks to some other country for work so he won't have another excuse to call me for a while. 

Yesterday, I was in a meeting when Abstinent Admirer came in with two very long florescent light bulbs. He and my boss played Star Wars until the Maintenance supervisor broke it up. I was suck in a glass bubble and could only look out at them. By the time I was released from the bubble, Abstinent Admirer was gone. 

I got paid today. Which is usually a nice thing. Except I have so much credit card debt that I sit around for two weeks waiting to get paid, then get paid, then make an as-giant-as-possible payment to my highest rate credit card. Thirty minutes after I get paid, I am back sitting around waiting to get paid again. 

The only thing that breaks up the monotony is my admirers (who are funny and interesting) and the dogs that live on the property (who are all small and hungry).

I promise to post something more funny and interesting (instead of small and hungry) tomorrow.

I feel you on that credit card debt, I finished undergrad debt free but was underemployed for 2 years then went back to grad school. Debt just snuck up on me.I have decent credit scores because I make payments on time but the balance is like a weight around my neck.

Awwww, poor Teapot. At least he gets points for trying.

Wow, you're so prolific lately! I see I have a lot of catching up to do around here since I've been sick!

Lady: I am OK with the balance, just not the 30% interest! That really sucks. I hate paying the interest. But I also don't regret the awesome experiences I had and all that I learned while I was not working.

Chelsea: I hope teapot comes into visit me after he gets back from wherever he is. We'll see how easily he gives up!

Elsie: I have a lot of catching up to do too! Welcome back. Glad you're better.
