Aww Dammit!

So I worked until 6 today.  I thought all day about the overly snarky post I would write tonight.  About how I hate working until 6 on Fridays.  About how jealous I am of the people on another floor who only work half days.  About how I envied my friend who has the day off and spent it catching up on True Blood.

As I left work I was still in a mood, large fat drops of rain falling from the heavens dampening not only the ground but my spirits.

But then I looked up from my car on the parking deck and damn if there wasn't a brilliant rainbow arching its way across the sky.

Sometimes it's the little things that can erase an entire day of insanity.

Have a good weekend!

I feel your pain... though one Friday, about two and half years ago, I had to work late. I was really annoyed about it and grumbled all afternoon. I ended up taking a later train than usual and started talking to this guy. We're getting married next summer.

Okay, I am not one of those girls who usually goes "awww" but damn your comment made me go "awww".

It's nice to know that working late can lead you somewhere other than a mental ward.

I wrote about a similar thing that happened to me last summer.... didn't have to work late, but had a hellish day at work that had me in tears by the time I reached the car. But then... I looked up.

@Crysta: awww, lucky you!!

and back when I worked I dreaded working late I would avoid it at all costs because I hated going home in the dark of night.
