BAD BAD WEEK, and I let it get to ME.

Here is list of upsets and bad luck of week

College was so so stressful and shattering this week.
Lost my pencil case which meant I lost:Every Pen, stapler etc
Lost my memory stick
lost my glass's
AND last night my NEW LAPTOP DIED, just switched off and I cant get it on again.
Such a stress week, Sitting here since 7am trying not to cry, trying to get laptop on (using sons now),he has not got micro office downloaded on this laptop and I need to practice EXCEL and Italian for Tuesday exams.

(sorry this next bit huge moan, but think people will understand)
Other woman in our marketing group of 3, did not do what she was to do in the project, handed us up lot of " dont know what to call it" S**t. I especially had to stay up 3 nights and stay in college from (leave my home at 7 am to get there) 8 am attend class's and stay on til 10pm each night (then 1 hour bus trip home) to complete it. The other woman, Kate, in group has 2 small babies and she did not see them some days, except in morning or when they were in bed, and the other MADAME ( I could be nasty here) sailed along as if nothing happened, drinking her cups of coffees and chatting to her other friends. On Wednesday and Thursday this week Kate and I missed all our class's except for exams, sorting out the mess and the MADAME went to all the revision class's and did nothing. At 2.30 on Thursday Kate had to leave and I felt I was going to snap, We have a hairdresser on campus, only €10 for wash and blowdry, so I went and got hair done, its been months since I treated myself, got about 20 "WHERE ARE YOU2 txt from MADAME and phone calls that she was now ready and had 1 hour to do OUR PROJECT. I did not reply, I honest was ready to leave college and never return, the pressure was that bad, and I do suffer from bad panic attacks.

I went to my Italian class at 3.50, and she found me there. AND THIS IS THE MOST JAW DROPPING THING SHE DID.. Came right into the class room, Helen the Lecturer was helping me practice for Tuesday's oral exam, MADAME told the Lecturer that it was only 3.55 that there was another 5 minutes before the class started and SHE NEEDED TO TALK TO ME ABOUT THE MARKETING ASSIGNMENT that was more IMPORTANT THAN ITALIAN. The class went silent and MADAME said, "Come on Carmel we need talk, very important". She started to give out saying that where was I when she now had time to do it, I wish I could fight with people, told her go away, that I would be in college at 7 am next morning, assignment due in at 9 am, that she was to do bibliography the way I had shown her to do it. She then kept txting me in class and phoning me to leave the class, come have coffee and we discuss project. Helen did ask me about it at end of class, saying she was not impressed at the way she was spoken to, (MADAME is in her 40s)Helen must had made complaint about her to marketing Teacher. You just would have to be there to believe the neck and attitude of this person. The next morning she showed me the work she had done, It was the web address of the sites and on each a full 9 page description downloaded on each of the Aqua Parks we looked up. I just stopped Kate from screaming at her. Marketing Teacher phoned me said we could hand it up later that day. I told lecturer that she was not to put MADAME into my our group next year. Bigger project due then.(MOAN ENDED)


argh - Yes, I understand. Group projects often have at least one slacker. Trust me, your professor knows who the slacker is in the group. They are obvious. Sharing your feelings is good - much better than stuffing them down with food, right? Good luck, HCB

OMGosh! You poor thing! What a day! Well, big deep breath...the day is over! YEA! I agree with HCB, got to get those feelings out! We all have been on that road somewhere in our lives. Today is a new day and on we go. Good luck dealing with her the rest of the semester! I am not sure how old you are, but if you are much younger then her, she may just have that I am older and wiser so you got to do what I say attitude. Just let it go. It will bite her in the you know where someday! Have a good day today! Oh yea, it's SATURDAY!!!!!

PHEW! That must have felt good to get off your chest. Sounds sooooo frustrating! Better days are ahead. Keep your chin up. It sounds like you handled it with grace. Good job!
