Sorry for the short diary, but I am typing this from a friend's house. Yesterday I wrote a diary about wal-mart's Sick day policies. Today, it may be me who is writing about being fired from Wal-mart because of evacuations and flooding.

My car is flooded up to the roof, I am typing this from my friend's house, and am frantically looking for my elderly parents medication. I woke up this morning to flooding and my car and my parent's car floating away from our driveway.  

I'd post pictures but  I don't want to be identified. Email me for pictures. I am kind of technologically Ludditeish, so as soon as I figure out how to sink my phone with this laptop I am borrowing I can post pictures of the cars.

After the complete rush to get my elderly parent and myself out of the house, grab the photo albums  and my parent's one joy, his laptop, and the bottle of wine(you can see where my priorities are), the only thing I could think about is how to get myself to work tomorrow so I won't get fired from Wal-mart.

I don't want to write an essay, I don't want to worry about my job, I don't want to worry about anything but getting the insurance adjuster for the car, fixing the ramp so my parent can get up with his bad hip and assess the damage.

Instead, I am going to figure out if I can make it to work, so Wal-mart doesn't make write an essay on what to say about why they shouldn't fire me. What do I put there-"Ask God to stop his Acts of God so I can come to work?"

The other thing is finding he money to pay for the deductibles for the cars. /sigh.  

Just venting.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
