Crappy Contacts and Corporate Cram

My contacts are really bugging me today. No matter how many times I put eye drops in, or how often I rub them, my vision is blurry and my eyes feel dry. It’s like I’m underwater without goggles, and it blows. I fucking hate days like this…I keep blinking and shaking my head, and rubbing my eyes. I keep using eye drops and then I blink some more and then I rub my eyes again, to no avail. I even try little “eye exercises” to try and get things moving in there…looking up and down, side to side…nothing works. My vision is 100% FUBAR today.

Super. THAT will make yet another day in corporate hell so much better…not being able to see the crappy work I don’t want to do, in the first place.

I’m not sure if that last sentence was sarcasm, or not. I’ll have to get back to you on that one.

Today is just not a good day for me. I’m not in the mood to be here…not that I’m ever in the mood to be here, but some days are worse than others. Some days, I am able to cope with being stuck in this cubicle doing monkey work and watching the clock. Sometimes, the time actually seems to go by at a fairly decent rate and I don’t mind being here as much. Other days, like today…suck worse than anything has ever sucked before.

Sometimes I wonder why I don’t just quit this place and then I remember those pesky bills and rent pppaymehtnts ansd i………godddammet coontacct lenseses! I kan’t shee whut I’m tyyping! Argh!

You see my desperation? Even my eyes aren’t playing by the rules…no part of my body wants to be here today. Maybe I should just jump the wall, and make a break for it. I bet the guards won’t be able to get a clean shot off in time. I’ve been watching Prison Break on Fox, so I think I’ve got enough knowledge stored away in my brain for some serious genius at the artistry of escape. Wish me luck, and if you don’t hear from me…it means I made it, and I’m sitting on the beach in Oak Island drinking a Pina Colada and thinking of you.

I’ve decided that sentence up there was sarcasm. Oh, and if you want to try and cheer me up with tales of bunny or corporate escape attempts, I have added my email address to my profile page. So feel free to drop me a line. I'm going to head to the bathroom and see if I can scrub my eyes clean with a pencil eraser.

are you sure you don't have them inside-out? if not, you might just have built-up lipid deposits and need to throw them out & go with a new pair.

I hate when my contacts get like that. That's why half the time I wear my glasses now.
As for work, I love mine, I just hate the people I work with.. namely my sister. As the days go by the more money I'm willing to put in on her hit. Ok, I was kidding...Kinda
so I think I’ve got enough knowledge stored away in my brain for some serious genius at the artistry of escape.
That made me laugh, Thanks.

How long have you worn this pair? Mine usually don't last the month of continuous wear they promise me, 8 hours in one stretch is about all I can handle.

Remember the more you rub, the more irritated eyes get--kinda like a lack of chapstick and licking your lips. . .it just gets worse.

Also, using drops too much will make your eyes worse--better to take a break and wear glasses, wash contacts frequently and put new ones in instead, if needed. The drops have something weird in them that can hurt your eyes. . .I forget what.

Also, lipid build-up is bad, but you can also get protein build-up. Most people produce more of one or the other. Washing is the only real solution here.

Sorry you're in pain. Also sorry September has become your sworn enemy. I happen to like fall, but this September is a schizophrenic nemesis, teasing us coquettishly with balmy days, then alternately punishing us with 40-degree nights. Then she spreads her vixen thighs of sultry, humid evenings requiring AC, only to crack the whip of a layer of frost on your windshield. Bitch.

Tydes Perdition said...

Oh yes... all of those days where I called in to coporate hell as sick because I stayed up late having sex all night. Oh yes. Fun.

The best way to escape it to avoid going in the first place. :)

I don't wear eye correction paraphernalia MWWHAA HAAA HAAA! I'm evil for point that out. Regardless sorry you fell shitty.

I don't really use eyedrops. My contact fell out this morning though. I don't know... One time in high school I took a major physics test with one contact on my finger cuz it came out and I didn't have any solution to put it back in. It was kinda distracting. Didn't do so well on that test.

Acuvue daily dispos changed my life. It's not too late for you, man.

Rowan said...

wow! Does nearly everyone wear contacts now? How can I go about calling anyone 4 eyes anymore? I can't tell!?! How many here have poor vision??? Not I...there I started.

Crystal said...

i've worn corrective lenses since I was 13.
