I was supposed to go to work today for 3 hours and I ended up staying all day. It was bad enough that it was supposed to be my day off and I was there, but I spent all day having to fix other poeples mistakes. While I was trying to make the most of having to be at work, I started talking to my manager about how my ovary was still hurting and what we thought could be causing it. At this time my pregnant coworker comes over and over and starts talking about how she hurts all over but that is just because of the baby. I was trying to ignore her rant and then I heard her say "Well I am going to get my ultrasound next week and find out the sex of my baby. Too bad you lost your baby I bet you would have liked to at least hear the heart beat once." If I could have hit her, I would have! I went to the back and cried in the bathroom. I can't believe she would ever say that!
About 15 minutes after I came out, I had two heartbreaking customers in a row. #1 talked to me about her failing cancer battle and #2 broke down crying because her son died in Iraq a year ago. I know I am lucky that my customers let me in their lives, but sometimes it is so hard. I think #2 cried together for at least 5 minutes. At that point, I felt so numb. I just want through the motions and got out of there as soon as I could. I hate that bad things happen to good people.
I want work to be an escape from all of this... instead it seems to be a constant reminder.
