Perpetually Peeved

Bit in the ass

Man, I for sure pissed someone off.  Karma is not only a bitch, she’s PMSing and I’ve stepped in her cross-hairs.  I’m going to do this Wordless Wednesday style.  (I said, “style” – you know I can’t totally keep my mouth shut. I’m not a good enough photographer for that.)

Wake up Wednesdays took on a whole new meaning when the coffee I got at Smalls' daycare didn't want to keep it's lid on. This explains my puddle tweet earlier.

Of course I was wearing a white shirt and jeans. Luckily I had a change of pants in my work drawer.

Which, I could have gotten away with if my UNDERWEAR WEREN'T DRIPPING WITH COFFEE! Quick change into the new pants, and I was headed home for a change.

It took everything I had. This is at least 500 points and certainly a jury of my peers would agree, justifiable homicide material.

Just ignore that little maintenance light - that's what I do. Crap! Forgot the gas money at home. New budget = cash system. Will have to roll down windows to save fuel.

Note to self: rolling down windows as a method of fuel economy = not worth it.

This is the 7th floor stairway of our building. Those are my feet promptly evacuating my body due to a fire alarm that went off precisely 15 minutes after arriving back at work.

These are the cute shoes I wore to work today.

And, by cute, I mean in the same way as children are cute. Cute until they make you want to cry hysterically and go lay down on your bed forever. Only the Department of Torture manufactures this particular brand of grommet shoe.

At lunch, I learned about a little of this - can't go into detail. I'm too busy sharpening my pencils and taping them to my leg. Just for self-defense, of course.

THE SYSTEM HAS RECOVERED FROM A SERIOUS ERROR -- As seen on my computer screen just prior to saving 2 hours worth of design work.

I've seen Robert Downey Jr. have better recoveries than this. The fa?

I finally threw my hands up and decided to get back on the horse. At least if I get in a wreck on the way home, I'll have on clean underwear.

Quick! Drive to McDonalds and yell, “Look what just spilled on me!”

Awesome post! 🙂

In other news, who keeps pants in their drawers?!?

Comment by shoutabyss

It was part of my whole glutton motto thing. I decided to leave the sewing to the tailor. 🙂

Oh, got it now. Coffee didn’t quite hit the system yet.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Yeah, but who keeps pants in their drawers?!?

(Read it slowly.)

Comment by shoutabyss

Trying to find the bright side to all of this and can’t. Well, except that “at least it wasn’t a $5 Starbucks coffee that you wasted”.

I know – pretty small comfort.

Comment by wolfshadesblog

Well hello wolfshades! I actually thought that myself. I’m not usually an optimist (in fact, I kind of loathe the idea of optimism), but I did have to find humor in it all. Hopefully, the universe has run out of jokes – at least for today.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Helluva day! I’ve had days like that (a lot actually). I write it off to the universe reminding me that shit happens.

But, I’m with Abyss – Who keeps pants in drawers at work? Inquiring minds want to know.

Comment by Jenni Engledow

The same kind of girl that doesn’t wear panties… 😉

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

I’d love to shout TMI right now, but honestly, I just don’t feel like it. 🙂

Comment by shoutabyss

I can honestly say that I have never kept a pair of pants in the drawer! 🙂 A clean pair of Underoos maybe….but not full-blown pants! Nice picture by the way! 🙂

Comment by redriverpak

You, of all people, need to keep a spare pair of pants in your drawer mister.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Those are not shoes for escaping from fires in!


Comment by gallowaygrave

Yeah, they are really only good for looking at. Unfortunately, I forget that every time it comes to picking out shoes for the day.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Hate to say it PP, but you do not look very peeved in that picture. And karma wasn’t PMSing -too- bad. I mean, you didn’t sit down on the coffee again when you got back into the office. Also, having been married for 5 years, I think I’ve now deduced what “cute” shoes mean:


So whenever the wife asks, “Are these shoes cute?” I nod wholeheartedly. My throat remains intact to this day.

Comment by Pop

Don’t worry – I was. When I’m not peeved, I look a lot like Giselle Bunchen. 😉

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Stuff like that always happens to me when I wear a white shirt. I blame the shirt and rarely wear white but guess what… Today I’m wearing a white shirt. I’m feeling the need to be extremely careful today.

Comment by tryityoumightlikeit

Proceed with caution! I have a list of things to NEVER do while wearing white. One day I’ll post it for you.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

The domino effect sucks! I’m taking this as a cautionary tale and moving my coffee far away from my white shirt and obsessivly checking the lid for secureness.

Comment by Amy

But, do you have a spare pair of drawers in your drawer?

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

I spill shit on myself all the time. If it weren’t for oxyclean I’d be buying clothes weekly. To offset the laundry requirements, I try to wear dark colors that don’t show the coffee stains so much.

Comment by writerdood

I missed the word “spill” in the opening sentence on first read. That was hysterical. Yes, I’m wearing a khaki-colored camo shirt today. Just precautionary, of course.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Damn, who did you piss off to get this kind of karma??

Comment by Vodka and Ground Beef

I have no idea, but I really hope I don’t do it again any time soon!

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Oh my god! I can’t believe I’m just now reading this! I totally would have bought you about 4 drinks last night! ps. at least you can make everyone laugh with all of your ungodly misfortune. 🙂

Comment by katie o.

Now you get all the wet underwear jokes… and here you were thinking I was a perve this whole time! 🙂
