So we all know I took the week off from my 2nd job and that I didn’t have anything booked for my ‘real’ job either (I did pick up a job for Saturday, but that’s neither here nor there). Well this is a dilema about tomorrow in two part harmony.
Here’s the irresponsible part. I got an e-mail this afternoon asking if I was able to do a luncheon for tomorrow. Yup, that’s right, tomorrow. This is the same client that does this to me all the time. Now, I will bend over backwards to accommodate last minute jobs for my clients whenever possible. I know things come up last minute all the time. This particular luncheon, however is held twice a month. Every month. And the dates never change. I don’t know if she’s just an idiot or forgetful or just uses me as backup when her 1st choice falls through, but I have always said yes to her. Regardless of how challenging it was to get done. Until today. I could absolutely use the money, but ya’ know what? I’m sick of her (and everyone else) taking advantage of my good nature. I have plans for tonight and tomorrow that I really don’t want to change. So I’m not going to. But damn the money would be nice.
So what are these plans you ask that I have? You know I scheduled this week to minimize my ‘alone and stuck in my head time’. Tonight is happy hour with a good friend of mine that I haven’t seen in ages.
Tomorrow? Well, that’s a bit more complicated. I had invited an
asshole douchebag idiot friend to go to the shooting range with me as the passes I have were originally purchased long ago with this asshole douchebag idiot friend in mind. No clue if said ‘friend’ is still planning on going or not and this is not normally something that I would do on my own, but I figure if my ‘friend’ flakes (which we all know inevitably will happen as I haven’t followed up), I’m still going! Alone! I’ll just picture a specific face on my paper shooting target. 😉 Fun, right?
Oh geez, now my client is texting me about tomorrow. As I have never actually turned down a job when I actually could get it done, I have put off telling her until I was 100% certain that I didn’t want it.
Doing something that I ‘want’ instead of something I ‘should’ is good for me, right? Damn this curse of being overly responsible.
