Who Does That?!?!

So I get up early this morning. A somewhat good night’s sleep and a very relaxing weekend and I’m ready to go. I have a plan of attack. I know what I need to do this week. I am out the door by 6:45am.

You would think that getting up early and getting on an early bus would be less crowded right. Uh. No. The mother fucking bus was so crowded that I was basically on my tiptoes. To top it off the driver kept stopping to pick up more and more people. Of course there is no where for them to go and so they just kept squeezing into me. I get off the bus at Milwaukee and had to shove the losers out of the way (people...you know you can step out of the back door...and then get back on the train TO LET PEOPLE OUT) to get out. I get on the blue line after waiting for, oh I don’t know 10-15 minutes (usually this is about a 2-5 minute wait if I leave later.

Of course it’s standing room only on the train as well although not as crowded. I get downtown and I go to call Jason to let him know that I am going to sit at the coffee shop downtown instead of taking the early train because I hate rushing and like getting some work done at the Cosi. I reach into the outer pocket of my bag and what do I find. NOTHING. That’s right. My shitty blue phone that lives in the outside pocket of my bag was gone. I know for a fact that I put it in there as when I was leaving the house, I was like, oh wait, I can’t forget my phone. The phone seriously sucks ass....there is no camera on it, no way to do any kind of data anything, you can text, but barely. I mean seriously...who would even want to steal that!?!?! I ran into the cosi and got online and had Bridgette call my apartment and see if Jason was still home and see if he could call my phone and perhaps I had just forgotten it. I finally got him on gchat and for no good. The phone was not in the apartment.

I’M SO PISSED. I HAVE SO MUCH FUCKING WORK TO DO AND I’M ONE LITTLE BALL OF STRESS AND SO THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT GOING TO BE HELPING THINGS TODAY.

Also, you know those people that are all...you know, you should really back up all your phone numbers on your cell phone in case you lose it or gets stolen...yeah. that’s a good idea and I obviously should have listened. Any phone number that I had gotten in the last...I don’t know 7 years is now gone. Plus in this day of speed dial and phone books at the tips of your fingers I don’t actually know anyone’s phone number by memory.

So this is such a pain on so many levels. Jason and I want to get iPhones but have been waiting to move to AT&T when my contract is up, which is in the middle of June. Well now I can’t go to Sprint and be like, can you give me a free phone for a few weeks.....

So I don’t know. I am going to try and go to Sprint, cancel my dad’s and Jason’s contracts on their phones. Cancel my phone so that whatever loser stole it won’t be able to make calls. See if there is some kind of cheap ass phone I can get to get through the next few months. Which I am sure there won’t be because you usually have to sign a contract. At which point I will go to AT&T and have them move my number over and start a family plan there, getting whatever free phone I can get until our tax checks come in and we can get the iPhones. OR Sprint won’t suck my ass like they usually do and I’ll be able to find a cheap phone to replace the one I have. Either way, it’s going to be a lot of money that I didn’t want to spend right now.

SUCH A ROYAL PAIN IN MY ASS. WHY DO PEOPLE SUCK SO BAD? YEP YOU ARE SUPER COOL, YOU GOT AN AWESOME BLUE PHONE. GOOD FOR YOU!

Oh that sucks! File a police report to help with getting a decent replacement phone.
