While overall things in my life are going well, I'm hitting a small rough patch. Sleeplessness and exhaustion, mixed with some things at work that I'm not pleased about are making things difficult. I like most of my coworkers, but there are exceptions. The girl that started the same day I did (the first holiday staff to start) is very nice. But then her sister got hired and her best friend got hired. The three of them do more sitting around and talking than actual work. They also speak Spanish to one another, so if the four of us are working on something together, I'm completely left out of the conversation. It's frustrating, and even more so is that my supervisor knows what's happening but can't do anything about it, aside from try to split them up often and 'babysit' them with little tasks. They don't take any initiative to find work to do; if they finish something they just sit around until someone comes to find them and explicitly tells them to do something.

To make this even worse, we're going off site for the next few days to work on an account. For some reason their stuff isn't stored in our warehouse, but in another one and we have to go there to decorate about 30 trees of varying sizes. Not everyone is going. Those three, my supervisor (that I like), the boys (two of them, whom I like) and their 'supervisor' dude that annoys the heck out of me because he acts superior and in charge when he's not. He has this habit of giving very condescending advice about how to tape boxes and stuff like that. Dude, it's not complicated. You take a box and you tape it together. You don't have to show us/lecture us/do it for us. It's not rocket science.

It's a huge project and will take a lot of work. The majority of the team is not industrious and not my favourite. On top of this, the warehouse doesn't have a fridge or a microwave and we'll be going in the company van. The boss was just like, "bring non-perishables for lunch". Great, thanks, I don't have anything but yogurt and cold leftovers. Not helpful.

I'm really tired so I'm trying to sleep more, but for some reason I'm /still/ tired after a full night of rest. I came home from work today (around 4:30) and went to bed. Got up around 8. Still tired but unable to sleep anymore. Ugh.

Ugh. Sorry to hear about the co-workers with bad attitudes and the lack of refrigeration. I hope you come up with a plan. I have an insulated lunch bag and little plastic freezy things, but that doesn't help if you don't have them. Oh! you could freeze the yogurt and then it will thaw a bit by lunch but still be cold?

*snugs* Good luck. I hope you are able to mostly work with the folks you do like.
