° " So An Extremely Stressful Day At Work.. "° #Drained

° " Work Was Extremely Busy And Stressful... My Male Boss Was So Out Of It Today... That When I Came Into Work At 8A.M.... Thing's Were Insane A Customer That's In The Military Waited More Than An Hour For 2 Taco Boxe's To Go.. My Friend Was Super Stressed Out To The Point That She Called Our G.M. In Tear's... As The Day Progressed On... Thing's Got Worse For Me... Since I Clean The Bathroom's... Someone Messed Up And Clogged The Woman's Restroom... And It Was Like A Nasty Nightmare... I Will Never Forget This Day.. And Then Our Male Boss Has This Play Thing As In A 19 Year Old Girlfriend.. That Come's To See And Distract Him Alway's.. And Today He Left Us Litterly Running The Restaurant Unsupervised Lolz... He Left To Walk To Walgreen's And Talk To His Girlfriend... For A Good While... Customer's Were Getting Angry At Me For The Neverending Slow Service... Like How Is This Alway's My Fault And I'm The Punching Bag... I Was Just Extremely Angry And Stressed Out.. By The End Of The Day.. I Made $7 In Tip's... And I Was Extremely Proud To Have Served A Severely Injured Soldier.

I'm so sick of the invalidation I receive almost on a daily basis. Just because my disability isn't one of the "acceptable" disabilities. Why do I always have to prove myself? Why am I always being questioned? I want to be able to tell people about what I have and get the services I need without jumping through the hoops I genuinely can't jump through. I don't want to be dismissed anymore. I want to be seen and heard. Just like I deserve
