Hell Week

This week has been a week from hell. It started off normal....

I did laundry on Sunday and Played World of Warcraft.

I played World of Warcraft. Unitl...... I got a text from my boss.
It said: The Regional President is going to be here tomorrow, can you please be at work at 5am?
I replied yes.

I go to bed at what I thought would be a good time. I went to bed at 10pm. Now since most of you know, I haven't been sleeping to well.

- I woke up at 230am wide awake. I laid there and kept turning over and over and over. At about 3am, I finally got up and said to hell with it. Not going to get anymore sleep, I might as well go to work. I knew they would be there since Management had to be in at 3am.

I get to work at 3:45 am. My boss was actually happy to see me and put me right to work. We looked like a bunch of bee's going around trying to get the store ready for THE visit. Normally there is a week notice, but not this time. The night before. Now that was a long day.

Wednesday - Went to work at 8am. I walked in and the boss is on the intercom "Allen to the office". Once in the office.... The Sh!t hits the fan. The GM was not happy. We were dinged on a few things that the operations manager was supposed to do but forgotten. I was working in the copy center all day. So the rest of my day was a breeze.

Thursday - Had to be at work at 5:30am. I got to work the boss hands me a list. I look it over and looked at the GM. I knew what I had to do. With out a word said I go and do the task until the store opens. I worked in the copy center again. I go home, sit down at my computer, turn it on and my phone rings.

The voice: Allen its Joe.
Me: Hi Joe
Joe: Allen Rhonda's husband killed himself.
Me: What?!?
Joe: Rhonda went home from work and found him.
Joe: Just thought you wanted to know.

Hung up the phone. I stared off in space for a couple of minutes. I've known Rhonda all my life. I was so sad for her. Then I jumped on facebook. I wrote this on my page:
Its a sad night, just found out that a Rhonda, friend in Indiana, her husband committed suicide today, he had been out of work for a few years.

If you know her, or her family please keep them in your prayers.
I posted it on my friends pages that I thought knew her. I wanted to get the word out.

One of my friends wrote me this:

Hi Allen,
I saw your post on my phone, just had not had a chance to respond. I have been praying for this family. I remember Carol. Aren't they related? Last evening, B, that's my oldest son, came to me with a shocked look on his face. He told me his Buddy's Dad had committed suicide. It all of a sudden hit me. I said "Oh my gosh! I knew that!!!" Then I showed him your post on my phone. When I first read it, I only thought of Carol. But I tried to think if I knew anyone with the last name of ****** I couldn't think of anyone. B and J have been friends for a few years. They worked together at Twin Lakes Camp and J was B Counselor, B was his CIT (Counselor in training). They spent the entire summer together and lived in the same cabin. They have kept in touch ever since, hung out and so forth. J was T counselor a different year. So my boys talk to him and have been to his house, he has been to our church. Small world! Anyway, B talked with J last evening. Very sad, shocking. Thanks for telling me. We don't know anything yet, do you? Let me know!
You doin' ok? How's your Dad?

Talk to you later.

Its a small world isn't it?

Friday - It was a normal day at work. I was walking around in a daze all day though, this is the 6th person that I have known in my life that has killed themselves. It bugs me, cause when one does it, I relive every single one of them. And think how much I miss them.

Saturday - Was a good day. I went to work and found out that I had only 4 hours of work left to do for the week, so it was like getting 1/2 day off.

I just hope next week will be better.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend's husband. There are so many people out of work for so long, I'm afraid this sort of thing is going to become more and more common.

I sure hope next week is better :-)
