*whine whine whine*

Well, since this is my blog and I can write anything here I shall mostly be whining today, lol. Don't worry, normall my bf is here for me to whine to first to take the edge off, but he's off galavanting with friends, so I have to focus my undiluted whining here :D So, today I woke up really suddenly, which is never fun, because my phone was ringing. So I got a little panicked because no-one ever calls me at 9.15am, so I thought either is was way late and I'd overslept for work (really unlikely since I don't start work til 3pm) or something bad had happened. So I like vaulted over Seb in my rush to the phone only to find out that it's the bitch from the temping agency I belong to calling to complain that I didn't call her on Friday to tell her I was too ill to go to work...well excuse me for spending most of the day vomiting :angry: Then I decided since I was awake I might as well get dressed, but I couldn't coax my bf out of bed, so I thought I'd take care of a few errands I had to run, including calling the phone company. The company we want to get broadband with tell us there's already broadband running to our line so we need that cancelled first, obviously the previous tenants didn't cancel their subscription, and it seems the phone company can't just cut them off so I have to get in touch with the phone company's like ruling body and ask them to cut the connection off...how annoying is that?!Then I ventured out the the post office...man I'm just a glutton for punishment it seems, lol. There was a queue as always, and there was a very strange little woman in front of me that looked like maybe she was doing aerobics or something, I mean jumping around etc. Then a strange old man got in the queue behind me and stood waaaaayyyy too close...personal space people!After that was less annoying, lol, although I did have to go to the Dr about my jaw ache :( She poked and prodded my jaw and even stuck her fingers reallllllly far in my ears to check whatever it was she was checking. Anyway, I came away with a low dose of valium, which I'm a little scared of. Has anyone taken it before and can tell me roughly what it's like? Oh, but to make things worse, I fell over on my way out of the Dr's....totally embarrassing!!Anyhoo, I do believe I've completely whined myself out, apart from to mention that my upstairs neighbours are obnoxiously noisy!Hehe, well, take care all, and have fun. Ben. :cowboy:

WTG Ben!

 

hehe i get to be the first to reply too!

Personal space! I was in a queue at work the other day when this smelly old woman was like pressing up against my back whilst i put my pin number into the card thingy. I felt like saying f**k off and leave me alone! of course im to nice to say that so i just pushed back and made her lose her balance hehe.

Glad your feeling better even after the bitch from the agency called!

Dear Ben,

 

that sounds like a typical Monday.....full of crazy stuff and the simplest things go hay wire.

 

Your jaw thing..is that from TMJ? no fun...whatever it is, sounds painful, which may explain the porridge for breakfast...easier on the jaw muscles.

 

Post Offices are always crazy..or at least mine is and it has the annoying habit of putting no postal workers at the front desk during busy times and then putting 4 or 5 of them on duty during off peak hours.

 

and in hot weather, the lines at my post office are always long it seems and everyone squashed together. Mine just put a glass cabinet filled with stuff animals right in the middle of the wait aisle so you have no space to walk or carry packages..instead, well you smack into others and its no fun. I like to people watch, so I find the "characters" interesting (from the little old lady the other day with very orange hair, what little she had, to one day a mother letting her son who had only a diaper on run wild, then punishing him since he was bored...I tend to freak out in my mind and wonder why do these people have children and what are they doing to them. Occassionally, I see a Mom or Dad who make it an adventure for their child or children and count with them, tell stories or explain what things mean in terms of post office mail, etc.)

 

I tend to get all sorts of people who decide they are going to tell me their life stories..whether I have time or not to listen. Often, I hear interesting stories...sometimes not (a few years ago an elder gentlemen in his 80s explained the history of the area, how he grew up there, saw the changes and how proud he was of his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren. It was Xmas time so I think he was lonely and missed his family.)

 

In lines, I always try to look around and wonder about the stories behind the faces of those in line..sometimes its fun to invent them and figure out what may or may have happened. And other times, when I see a hot Guy, I play the "is he or isn't he Gay" gayme in my head..well, I do that at the gym too...at least it makes me smile.

 

Ben, I do think you always have interesting stories....and of course so do you Dave...and I know this is Ben's blog but I hope that you and Chris are doing better.

 

I can't wait to read more of Ben's musings:)

And you call yourself British. 'Rolling Stones'. Just for that, we'll have to take away your tea and crumpets.

Give the poor lad a break, he's not old enough to remember good music, and the valium is affecting his brain
