    Idiotic new salesman assigned to me. I know the git is trying make a name for himself, but he's already severely pissed me off.

    He's replacing a complete fart, which I sat down and explained to him. I went through and summarised all of his clients with him, as I've been working with these people for years. Does he take a single fucking note down? No, the fool does not. Suddenly my hopes of having a competent sales person working for me are dashed. And he has the nerve to tell the bosses that he was concerned because he felt like I didn't want to spend time with him. What is he, a fucking ESFJ? Why do people keep going on about their feelings? "I don't give a fuck how you feel - stop banging on about your fucking feelings." That wasn't even my decision - I asked for some more time to explain his area, but no. I had to cover 2 people's work as well as my own that day. So I didn't have much time to spare.

    Worse still, he begins his new role. And immediately goes into various meetings with clients without even bloody well telling me. Gonna resurrect those accounts - "What do you think you are? A fucking necromancer - there's a reason they're dead and it's because they were wasting my fucking time." I told him exactly why we let go of those time wasters, but instead of asking me for a quick briefing on them, he just writes down all their complaints and e-mails it all to the managing directors. So I've had to spend half my day proving what I said him a couple of weeks ago that he didn't bother to listen to, and prove that I indeed am fucking good at my job and work well within my expected service level. Even if I do spend half the day fucking around on the internet and texting somebody.

    My new workplace doesn't have a guest wifi network that they allow you to connect your personal devices to. And it's in the middle of nowhere so cell service is pretty bad. How am I supposed to slack off?

    You could get one of those tiny TP-Link N300 wifi routers, and put it in bridge mode. Then Tunnel all your phone traffic through a good VPN.

    Caught a cold.

    I slept through the night last night, can't remember the last time I did that. Sleep had been atrocious, but I keep making adjustments for a few gains. For starters, I kicked the comforter off the bed (ought to be burned to hell) and swapped for blankets and another sheet.

    Clothes without branding are either cheap crap or completely out of my price range

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    I was disappointed that they don't dress in monochrome clothes anymore. I was the only one dressed that way at Salt Lake City airport recently. It was like showing up to a fancy dress party and people are wearing normal clothes.
    They could tell I wasn't mormon anyway because I just sat scanning the area and glaring at everyone.

    Patterns, I see patterns everywhere.

    Nevermind/just ignore me.
