I am having a nervous breakdown

Thank you for allowing me to vent about my day...

It is so hot. Everyone is SUCH a JERK. I am the problem solver, but don't have all the answers. As I remove all the tea cups at the electrician's request, I know I will need to recreate what took 5 hours to create. I am pissed. The plumber mutters, "You should have consulted with me, I thought the toilet was being set yesterday. I don't work on Saturdays. I will have to charge you overtime." - UGH!
What time does our client return from her trip? Her house needs to look perfect and not like a full blown construction site. How many times can I go to plastic mart in one day? How much is a dimmer? It needs to be low voltage. why won't the thermostatic valve faceplate snap to the rough plumbing correctly? How do I know? - I am not a plumber! problem solve. Is the rough plumbing set out too far from the wall? Why didn't you grout around the tub? bad attitudes are abundant. Every trade is beginning to despise me and I don't care. I have tried the nice route, but it isn't working anymore. Calm down people. It's a man's world in construction. I am so tired. why all the miscommunication? Who is going to clean up all the dust. Here goes the name calling. It is 98 degrees at 9:23am - why did I bother to shower again? Hopefully today is the last day of the installation. When are the iconic panels being delivered? who will help me carry them, they are 150 pounds each. I don't care if you need to be in the Hollywood Hills pouring concrete, you promised to finish the tile yesterday! Stop calling me sweetie. Use the maid's bath or the pool bath, not the powder room please. What gives people? Another quick scream in my car is in order. coordinating 5 trades is hard work. I secretly hope the tile guy's wife doesn't go into labor, we can't afford to lose him right now. Am I the only one who isn't trying to take the easy way out? stop chatting. start performing! we need the paint to match the stone. I wish my Spanish was better. How did that guy get third degree burns all over his face - I guess all that matters is his tiling ability. Did you really just drip paint on the $20,000 display cubes? - YES $20,000!

i have trouble finding 20,00$ worth of value in the cubes. There is no logic or reason when it comes to the price of art. Im pretty sure i saw the same thing at Ikea. Only 19,000$ there.
