An agency I do some contracting for couldn't process my billing, thus didn't send me the check I was supposed to get two weeks ago for 22 clinical hours. They acknowledged that I had submitted my billing correctly, explained that the error was entirely on their part, called me repeatedly to tell me what a great clinician I am and how sorry they were that they had screwed up, checked with all sorts of people with power, but said there was no way they could get me paid sooner. Watch those insufficient funds fees pile up.
I called the IT helpdesk at work about some spyware on my computer. I'm usually not one to publicize work drama, but this was, um, special. Someone was apparently having a bad day or experiencing momentary demonic possession or something, because they didn't actually fix the spyware problem, but rather gave me a lecture about how my computer wasn't working because I had bookmarked a page of pictures of family and friends on my work computer. Having a bookmark of "something that is clearly not related to your work" had caused my computer to not work right, I was told. My hundreds of other bookmarks of mental health info, medical reference, links to state agencies, treatment strategies, and community resources, of course, were not believed to be affecting the computer in any way. No, they didn't remove the spyware. It's still there.
Someone hit my car while it was parked outside my house at night. The next day I talked to some neighbors and found out that one of them heard a crash, went outside to find a row of smashed cars and saw someone get out of a car, stagger around, get back in and speed off. He got there too late and was too far away to get enough of a description of the car or the driver. A few different neighbors made police reports. I spoke to our neighborhood police officer, who said he'd run through reports to see if there were any abandoned cars or people picked up for reckless who could likely match up. According to my insurance company, "if the other driver can't be identified, it's not a hit and run." They said the claim isn't going to affect my driving record (uh, it better not, since I wasn't, um, driving), but they also won't waive the deductable based on it being a hit and run, even with a witness and a police report.
The insurance carrier we were going to go with for (considerably cheaper) homeowner's insurance decided to do a drive-by, on the day that there were smashed cars and pieces of glass and headlights strewn all over in front of our house, and said that they would not be able to insure us for "unspecified issues observed during the drive-by." The house is in great structural condition on the exterior and has a decent paintjob and everything. I think I have an idea of what they might have observed.
Mitt Romney decided to abolish the Governor's Commision on Gay and Lesbian youth, apparently thinking this would make there stop being gay and lesbian youth, then quickly backed down when a whole bunch of lawmakers told him he was a dumbshit, then tried to deny he'd said he was going to abolish it at all.
It's rained for the past 6 days and is supposed to rain for the next 7, at least. I'm about to build an ark, if I can find enough cubits.
Fortunately, tequila makes most everything better.
