Let's get random!

We need a new mattress something serious. I'm pretty sure I'm not supposed to wake up with back pain every day. Jesus be a pillowtop queen size mattress.
Pserendipity- I looked up exactly what I sent her, this is what I said verbatim: This is just a reminder that the Subsidy file is due to the state by the 25th, which falls on a Sunday, so it needs to be posted by this Friday.
I didn't say "you need"! But for future reference, I'll make sure I never, ever type "you need" in an email to somebody! But would you really jeopardize your job because somebody upset you in an email?
Jurista- I'm glad you can see she doesn't respect me and realizes I have no power, lol. My boss is cc'd on every email I send to her and my boss has had meetings with her repeatedly about this. I don't think my boss wants to go to her boss because they're friends, but clearly that's what we're going to have to do. I wanted to approach her yesterday but I was so upset because I sent her an email at noon and I saw her sitting in front of her laptop all day and she didn't even have the decency to respond to my email at all! My boss comes back from maternity leave next week, so I'm sure we'll be having another meeting.
Why is this post 57 different fonts? I have no idea.
House Hunting update- the realtor has not responded to the email I sent her on Monday. It is 2010, if you can't conduct business on the internet I don't want anything to do with you. MrC is going to call her tomorrow. I don't do phone conversations well. We'll see what happens next!
My birthday is in 6 days. I still haven't finished my 30 before 30 list, I haven't decided on a theme for my 25th year of life, and I never sent out my birthday list. People keep asking what I want for my birthday. I want a house and a 7 inch santoku knife. Nobody has been willing to accommodate any of those requests.
Miracles are happening in my friends life right now regarding her mother in the hospital. If you have a moment, say a prayer for the healing of Beth Miller. We believe she will walk out of there better than when she went in!

I think the thing is maybe she doesn't think her job could be in jeopardy. She's been doing the same thing and getting away with it, so now she's indifferent.

But, I liked your email better. :) We learn in online training to never use the word "need" when there is an action concerned. In an email or online, it often causes conflict and can be a condescending term.

Said a prayer for Beth.

You're gonna have a house before you know it!
