Those Doggone Democrats!
I have been miserable since Obama won the election last week but not for the reasons you may think. I've been bamboozled into working for a tour company and my hours are supposed to be 9am-3pm, M-F with every other Wednesday off.

Before Election day things were just starting to get cozy for me. Comfortable hours that allowed me time to be Mom, wife and friend. As of Thursday afternoon something changed that is going to make sure that cozy and comfortable are not in the cards for me until the middle of January.

The Bossman decided to put together overnight Obama Inauguration trip to Washington DC for the inauguration at $199.00 each. Immediately the 8 line telephone went berserk and hasn't stopped since. We had 6 full sized buses and 2 Hotels filled to capacity by 9am this morning. By noon he added 2 more buses and another Hotel which are about to be filled.

He should have sold the trip at $499 per person! In fact it is my understanding that a person came in and bought an entire bus full just so he could SCALP the trips for double the money.

Either way it has been a crazy house at work all week. I'm sorry, and I don't mean to offend - but all y'all Democrats are a demanding bunch of cheap shits. A few asked if a baby or small child could go for free, even if they sat on their lap. Honey, do you realize that this is a 10 hour trip and do you have any idea how antsy a little child is going to be? The Mall that is the park in between the White House and Washington Monument is going to be packed solid with millions of people. Much like an Irish Pub on St. Patty's Day. You could literally get pregnant being so close to so many strangers! A kid, a baby with stroller or heck even a Grandmom is going to be a very bad idea.

It is nearly impossible to guarantee that everyone gets on a bus with their friends. I'm trying by keeping groups together but some late comers are going to have to ride on #7 and #8. It's hard enough keeping up with the rooming lists (Single, Double, Triple and Quad) for over 500 people, not to mention trying to make sure that at least the groups are in the same Hotel.

Be glad if you're sleeping with someone you know!

Well anyhoo, top all of this off with stuff. Yeah stuff!! Bossman wants buttons, beach balls, sweatshirts, hats, fanny packs, chairs and blankets to sell with commemorative Obama imprinting. Guess who has to order them? Guess who has to make sure that everyone gets what they ordered? Having to find out what bus they are on so at least I can get the right products on the right bus. We won't even mention getting the sizes right.

It's a madhouse!!

Well, thanks for letting me vent. I'll get back to normal blogging again - maybe more now that I have something totally terrible to bark about. The only thing that would make this any worse would be for the Bossman to make me go on this trip.

Oh no! Not ever! Nuh uh! I ain't gonna go!

    I was wondering where you'd gone to. Good to see you're being kept busy, bad to see why. I do hope you get some sort of comission.
