Random Schmandom

Random Wednesday----


My cell phone (blackberry curve) is dying, and it's new. It turns off- and won't come back on until I disconnect/reconnect the battery. It loses time...a couple of minutes a day, I think that's a bad sign. All things are made so poorly anymore.


My Direct-TV is out most days...I have two days out of seven with a working television, if I am lucky.


I think my Direct-TV repairman has a crush on me...he's a kid!!!


Damned fire alarm went off for more than fifteen minutes last evening. My poor heart can't take much more, or the hearts of my kitties. This is not my smoke alarm, it's the building-wide fire alarm, and each apartment has one...and it can't be turned off until the entire West Des Moines fire department shows up to say..."oops, false alarm"...


On a good day, I hate my job. On a bad one, I deplore it.


The Ice Cream Store opens this weekend. Woo---ugh ----- Hoo.


And now that you have all been uplifted by this post, I leave you with this:

they should reduce your rent for lack of peaceful living-- or whatever that clause is... that fire alarm goes off at least once or twice a month... i know that would cause med panic attacks. ugh.

you're right-- they do make crap these days-- we were just talkin about like yesterday-- the days of modern technology-- woo hoo--
look at my one year old computer. ugh. or my kids phone-- it's been sent back so many times in the past two months-- they finally sent her a diferent model !!! and even it's not that great. ugh.

well.. sorry you aren't likin the job... i still feel happy that you have one tho-- i was hearin about the unemployment rate the other day-- just hold on-- somethin better will come along for you.

There used to be a woman who lived in our locale that would call the police because she kept "hearing noises"...after many calls, we finally figured out that she had a crush on one of the officers. The Lt. had to make a trip over there and gently but firmly let her know that she could be arrested for what she was doing. The calls miraculously stopped after that. I'm wonderin' if someone in your building has a crush on a hunky fireman. LOLOLOLOL

Too darn many irritations sure can combine to drive you crazy after awhile. I've gotten so used to new things falling apart that it doesn't even surprise me anymore, but it's damn disgusting. That fire alarm would make me bonkers and my poor furkids would never come out from under the bed again. I'm hoping things at your job will even out to the point of being bearable, at least for the time being. That's pretty much how mine is. Wish we could just win the lottery or something and retire!

Where do I click to follow your blog?? Remember, do it for the love, not for the money. Life is to short to go to work and hate it all the time. I hate my company, but I love driving....so I deal with the b.s. because I know I am doing it for the betterment of myself. When the economy....if the economy....recovers, I will be able to go to a better company. Take care and be good to yourself.

Awww..come on, what's wrong with a little Mrs. Robinson action? Maybe you could teach the kid a few things?

*wink*

I'm in the mood for someone to have a crush on me. Young would be fine. Look around for a new job. You never know what else is out there. You can't/should not stay with something you hate. It will only get worse.

Do you sit on your balcony? I'm picturing that. It can make me happy on a crappy day.

CRUSTYBEEF said...

yeah, I wouldn't be too happy either!! THEY NEED TO FIX THE BELLS! :)

:) and you can ring my bell with some ice cream. :)

Hope Janelles feeling okay!! Getting closer!! how exciting!!

Oh my dear one! Do pray for better times for you! Blessings!

Man, that would tick me off about the cell phone. I hope you can take it back. I killed my roomba in two months... I think that's probably a record.

I hope the job thing gets better. I'm so afraid I'm going to be in that boat when I finally get one. I swear six months is how long it takes to stop sucking - if it's going to.

Thank you for the kitty laugh - that cracked me up!

Send the phone back....

tell the direct t.v. guy to please fix it rught, the next time he comes out....if he has a crush on you he maybe only fixing it enough to watch then you call and he gets to come back....

get earplugs for when you go to bed, or ask the land lady, if next time the alarm goes off do u get a discount on your rent, for irratation..
