this is me... ranting

I'll apologize now for this post but I just have to vent.

I work at a country club with a golf course and my degree was in hotel and restaurant management, and yes, I completely, 100% understand that when choosing the hospitality field, you choose weird hours. I get that. I got lucky with this job and most weeks I work Monday-Friday 8-5 ish but I have recently gotten a promotion and took on a lot more at work and now in addition to my normal 40 hour work week, I have to work weekday evening events/dinners once or twice a week (on a normal week), I come in Saturday mornings for a little while and then Sunday mornings for a little while. I have to be at ALL special events and I'm pretty much on call 24/7. If anyone needs anything, I am the person they call. 

So when I get a day or two off, I want to savor it. I want to turn my phone off and disregard all emails I get. But this doesn't happen. I have a bride whose wedding is in July and on Friday she asked me if we could set up an appointment on Saturday night. Saturday night. Do you hear this? Saturday nights are the only nights that I don't come into work so I make plans in advance for Saturdays. But this Saturday I went to Tulsa to see the Sugarland concert (which was incredible btw) so I told the bride that I could meet her Sunday evening (which to me is like 4-6) and she asked me to meet with her at 3 and I said that would be fine.

It's 3:30 and she has yet to come. 

1. You're telling me that you want to come in on a weekend because of your work schedule but you assume that I don't have days off just like you do? Like when is it that you think I don't work because most people do not come into work on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Just because I work in the hospitality industry doesn't mean that I work 7 days a week. mmmmk?

2. Then you don't show up. Are you freaking kidding me? How disrespectful of my time can you be? Ughhh I just do not understand people like that! 

Okay, okay, I'm finished now. And like I said, Sugarland was so awesome that it pretty much makes up for anything annoying that anyone can do for the next few days because I'm still in a post-sugarland high. If you haven't seen them in concert, DO ITTTTT. 


  1. That is SO frustrating! People can be so inconsiderate!

  2. ugh how frustrating oooh my goodness! Don't apologize, sometimes you just need to vent and what better place than here. Love SugarLand <3
