    Just spent 3-4 work hours yesterday and one hour this morning trying to get my managers to tell me what they've assigned me to do this week. "What do you want me to do?" "Just give me research on such-and-such person." "What kind of research?" "What do you mean? I just want background information!" "What background information? In how much detail? How long do you want the papers to be?" "What do you mean?" etc. etc.

    IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO EXPLAIN ASSIGNMENTS TO EMPLOYEES. It should NOT be my responsibility to force assignment specifics out of my managers! It should NOT feel like pulling teeth!

    Maybe if I had a manager who understood my goddamn JOB then this wouldn't be a problem. But the person who managed the researchers resigned like 8 months ago and NEVER GOT REPLACED.
    and it's nice enough to
    make a man
    weep, but I don't
    weep, do
    you?

    You need to get the fuck out of that job. I feel 86% of your problems would go away if you left that job.

    Ugh. I was literally falling asleep when I got up to turn the light off and the caffeine hit me from a cup of coffee.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Tired of your flakiness, tired of you cancelling plans on me all the time.

    But I am not giving up on you yet though. Love is patient, love is kind. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. I'd rather tolerate your flakiness than to give up on our relationship.
    I am foolish, I know that, but to me, love is persevering and you never give up on someone even when the going gets tough.

    I will try to love you unconditionally, this is the only way to prevent myself from being disappointed by your flakiness. The only way to avoid disappointment is to have no expectations.

    I told the fat lady that's misgiving me a load of hatred ideas to "go to hell" & I'm very pleased with myself for it.

    Don't with a God!
