Um, hi! Can you spray your germs somewhere else, please? [*warning* graphic snot pic ;-)]

As you know we’ve been busting our butts to get stuff done these days. Yesterday we had my chiropractor appointment, talked with our slumlords on the phone (and got out of our lease), then we went to the bank per their request to place stop payments on the 2 checks we sent them for rent but they never got.

At the bank we got the really old and really slow teller lady who was oozing of germs. We explained our situation to her and asked to have the 2 stop payments processed, then we were planning to have a cashier’s check cut in place on the 2 stop payments. Easy enough right?

Well for starters the old teller lady was hacking up a lung the entire time we were trying to tell her what we needed which didn’t help her hear or understand what we were wanting.

I was sitting right across from her trying to hold my breath while she coughed and sneezed her germs all over us.

We explained it all about 6 times before she got a grasp of what we needed so that meant more coughs and sneezes for us to enjoy!

N was getting pretty annoyed and on edge about it all too. The whole time she was handling our documents her nose was running and she was casually wiping it with her sleeve and breathing/ coughing on her pen (that she later passed to us for use).

Normally I am not a germ freak and I have a pretty strong immune system but I am freaking pregnant folks! And I refused the flu shot (which I do every year) and any other shots that expose myself and baby to unnecessary things. So I am not loving this germ ridden encounter with really old, slow and very sick teller lady!

N wanted to ask for someone else to assist us. He also wanted to tell them to send the poor sick woman home already, she needed to rest and recuperate… She probably would have been offended though but what are you supposed to do? When I was a retail worker I remember a few times where customers spoke up for me and I appreciated it… N bit his tongue though and let her keep helping/ germ assaulting us.

I only ever get sick once a year, max and I don’t take pills or get shots to prevent illness. I sometimes have allergies or headaches but full on flu or other sicknesses skip me somehow (knock on wood). Still, your immune system is weakened by pregnancy and being sick while pregnant can be a pretty uncomfortable thing since you aren’t allowed to take anything. I haven’t been sick yet and want to keep it that way!

Anyway, I got assaulted big time with germs at the bank yesterday, now I am chugging OJ! Thought I would share that with you.

Today we’ve been pouring over legal documents and I think my eyes are going to bleed. We are on round 3 of the lease/ purchase agreement for the new house. I just typed up 2 different mutual release documents to get out of our lease, one of which will be signed and executed Friday when we meet with and pay the slumlords.

We are also reading up on tax and home buyers intensives in addition to researching IRA funded home purchase rules, mortgage options and Indiana closing cost info. Fun stuff huh?

But hey, we got our house and we are so outta this shit hole! Now that bank teller better not have gotten me sick…

  1. Yeah, that’s pretty gross. You guys shoulda said something in a nice way to her bosses so they could let her go.
    FYI if you do happen to get sick, there is actually stuff you can take. I have a list somewhere that I will send too you via email. You will be amazed at all the stuff that is ok. Certain pills and things are actually ok because they don’t get into your plancenta.
    I had got bronchitus when I was preggo with Riley and they had me taking cough medicine that had codeine i think, in it.I get really sick when I get Bronchitus. Also had to have wisdom teeth pulled while preggo cuz there was risk of infection , so I was on percocets. I mean you can take vicoden, morphine and stuff like that if it’s a neccessary and it wont harm the baby.Crazy huh?? You taking your prenatal vitamins?
    I’m so glad things are goin good for you guys. The house is soo freakin cute and I can’t wait to see pics of Tater when she arrives. Are you gettin nervous about Labor at all?

  2. melissa » I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t get sick because on the rare occasion that I do, it hits me so hard and I can’t handle that right now.

    I am not nervous about the birth, more excited actually. I am reading Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth right now (thanks to Donna B) and it is super inspiring and empowering. I am nervous about not being ready for Tater to come, you know with the move and the financial burden of preparing for baby. Other than that we actually can’t wait to have her join us!

  3. OH UGH! I cannot stand that. And then you have a baby and people want to touch your baby’s FACE and you’ll wan to break their arm off because HELLO that’s how germs are introduced to baby’s system. Oh, don’t get me started. Today we called Wynnie’s school to tell them she wouldn’t be there because she has a cough-we always ALWAYS keep her home if she’s even slightly sick, but other parents send their kids deathly ill. The teacher told us that pink eye is going around, so it was best to keep her home anyway. She’ll be home at least another day. People who are sick need to STAY HOME!

    Sorry. That’s one of my big ‘ole pet peeves.

    Thanks for the comment tonight on my post about warehousing CRAP!

  4. Ewwww! What was she? 3 or something? Who over the age of a kindergarden wipes their nose on their sleeve…

    As a former Wells Fargo teller, what you were asking for was such a simple request I could probably do it with my eyes closed! Even after not working there for 3 years…

    We dont go out of the house when were sick, unless its over to Chris; parents house or my sisters. But C’s dad and Liz are both RN’s so there is not harm in us they are around worse at work?

    And O-M-G! I cant believe the N carried the V card till he met you! He was so sexy in HS! At least I thought so!

  5. Hyphen Mama, I so get what you are saying about people wanting to touch your baby. It’s horrifying sometimes! However, I understand the wanting to touch. When I see a cute baby in public, I put my hands behind my back because I want to touch them, hold them, cuddle them… etc.

    Talina, I think you should have said something to the bank management too. They allowed her to work or they made her feel unable (in some way) to take a sick day.

  6. I’m the same being pregnant. I am so careful in a public loo, and I keep away from anyone who looks sick, if I got anything right now it would pull me down as I’m already tired and my immune system probably wouldn’t cope. When I fell pregnant I got a flu as well for 2 whole weeks, along with the pregnancy symptoms I felt like I was going to die, didn’t know I was preg until I went to the doc for a medical certificate for work becasue of my flu and casually mentioned the absence of Aunt Flow.
