We have good news for anyone who loves bad news

It has been a shitty week. I guess I'll just get right to it: Buster lost his job.

When he was hired, he had to sign a paper stating that he had no immediate family that worked there. He was signing this paper along with tons of other papers, and he did not read the fine print. He (and I) incorrectly assumed that immediate family did NOT include in-laws. Well, we were wrong. Human resources found out that Buster was my dad's son-in-law, and my dad works at the same company.

The worst thing about all of this is that there is no way that HR would have found out on their own. Someone had to go report this. It makes my blood boil to think that someone would be so malicious and vindictive as to go to such measures to fuck with someone's livelihood.

Buster's cousin was once married to the daughter of one of the higher-ups at the company. He was an awful husband, and after sleeping with half the town while married to this girl, they got divorced. Her mother went to such lengths as to slash his tires afterward. She is a malicious, vindictive person. And Buster used to work with his cousin at the driving range that his cousin ran. Buster was assistant manager, and it was during the worst time in the cousin's marriage. It seems to us that this family associates Buster with his cousin, and maybe by hurting Buster they could hurt the cousin.

Well, Buster hasn't spoken to the cousin in several years, after finding out what kind of guy he really is. And by Buster losing his job, that won't affect the cousin. He doesn't give a shit what happens to Buster and me.

It's been a rough week, trying to come to terms with this. We were planning so many things for the next couple of years, including buying a car, a house, and paying for enough fertility treatments to knock me up.

A job search will commence, and hopefully Buster can find something suitable in the coming weeks. We are still planning on doing our Femara+IUI cycle in January, so hopefully 2011 can start with some good news. I am, without a doubt, ready for 2010 to be over.

The blog title is lifted from the Modest Mouse song "Bury Me With It" from the album entitled "Good News for People Who Love Bad News". It's actually, I think, my least favorite song on that CD. So, I'm sharing another song from that same CD: Ocean Breathes Salty. Enjoy :)
