I took off Wednesday and Thursday night for my birthday because I planned on getting trashed. I got to work last night and got mauled(in a good way) by my co-workers on the previous shift and the co-workers on my shift. Evidently, the two days I was gone were complete hell for all parties involved and they were ecstatic to have me back. I was surprised I did not receive any phone calls on my days off and after hearing of the past couple days events, I asked why no one called me. They told me they did not call me because they wanted me to have a good birthday and a little vacation from the job since I had been on the verge of a burn-out. Management is still broken, beyond repair, in my opinion but my co-workers gave me a big case of the warm fuzzies last night. Sometimes, a little reaffirmation of ones worth makes everything okay again. At least until my next meltdown!
