withing Posted March 12, 2009 Share Posted March 12, 2009 Okay, somehow, some way, I've pulled a muscle in my back right hip/leg area. I don't know how or why, but it hurts like fucking hell. Between that, my back (which always hurts) and my knees, I can barely walk, but I'm gimping around because I'm stupid that way. So I went to work today and told my immediate supervisor that I hurt my leg, just in case she might wonder why I'm limping. And my co-worker, with no sympathy at all told me that I need to go down three floors (thank goodness for elevators), fill up some ice chests and bring them back upstairs and fill them with sodas and drinks for tomorrow's "big meeting." Now, I know that she has a lot to do, and I know that I wasn't very helpful with a bum leg, but give me a break! I had to lug these ice chests around (yes, they had handles and wheels), schlep sodas and juice back and forth, and do all kinds of stooping and bending and not once did she offer to help! Even after I mentioned that I "really must have pulled something" during all of this. She actually seemed annoyed at me for being hurt. Maybe she thinks that if I can move (without complaining - mind you - I only mentioned the pain the one time because I must have made a noise when I moved, and it hurt, and she looked up) I'm not really hurt? Or maybe she thinks that part-timers aren't allowed to be in pain... I don't know, but she really pissed me off with her complete lack of sympathy. I don't get her sometimes. She seems nice and friendly most of the time, but it's times like this that she seems very *very* cold. I'm sitting on a heating pad right now, and I don't even know if I'll be able to put any weight on the stupid thing tomorrow. It really fucking hurts. /whine ETA: I forgot to mention - that soda thing... it's usually her job. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
