What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread


Recommended Posts

I’m sure it’s safe to post here as nobody from my extended family would ever frequent such a forum focused on vehicular nonsense.

watched a programme on BBC iplayer yesterday. Nothing unusual with that, I know, but it was narrated from start to finish by my niece. 
I know I have played no part in the tireless effort and tenacity on her part in achieving what she has achieved so far and I know that she will grow much, much further.

Still, makes me feel a bit proud of her.

Had an unusual car accident this morning, hit a snowman. I was assuming snowmen would be soft and fluffy, this was like hitting a boulder. 

Its what would stop me driving into a snowman unless I'd made it myself first or poked it with a stick to be sure... Same reason I tell the kids to shut up when the want me to 'splash the puddles' which entails hitting the shitty fucked up verge of wherever B road we are driving at b road speeds with my nice airtight tyre and non knocking suspension... No thanks kids, be quiet!

tomorrow i am going to throw my notice in at work.

i've been in the shit-can job for 10 weeks and i really fuckin' hate it, plus i really suck at it too!

today it took me the better part of two hours to drive to the office, and got snide remarks for my apparent tardy-ness when i arrived.

see all that rain we had last night? well north of Whitby, and above Sleight's, that rain was snow.... and i've got no choice but to drive that way. to get there! the others in the office drive something like 8 miles to get there, i'm doing the better part of 60, each way. all i'm doing with my time is sitting in the car and spending what ever i earn on diesel.

so fuck it, if i don't jump ship i'll only get pushed, plus each time i get in that road i feel i'm taking my life in my own hands. no job is worth the heartburn, sleepless nights and general malaise that it is causing me.

 

 

today i have done the deed.

after fretting all weekend about it, and i mean fretting about it too, sleepless nights, screwed up tum, palpitations, heart burn and no appetite, 

the whole long list of symptoms  of "stress" i have handed the notice over.

ok, so i originally wrote it on Thursday, and this morning i rewrote it cos it was, well, "terse" to say the least, but today its gone and been handed over.

i finish on Friday.

and after that, well lets just say that it has lifted a weight off my shoulders.

to compound everything, i have actually had an ok working day today to.

odd, eh?

No wonder why you was stressed. You were doing the work of 3 hence 3 resignations. Hope you find something else soon.

Was it walking, driving, or were you on a neighbours front lawn?

It just leapt out at me. It was on the verge of a very narrow country lane, and made more treacherous by having frozen solid last night. 

Luckily the Cashcow shrugs off impact damage like a Volvo 740.

Saved this from going into the metal skip at the local recycling center today.

Much too nice to be scrapped. 

 

Still in vogue around here as vintage upcycled tables when you stick a top on them, I've done a few, the cheapest I sold was for £80, before I realised that I could get quite a bit more. Used decent tongue and groove boards with a 2x1 edge around, it helped that I could get the wood free as offcuts from someone who build sheds.

Slim possibility I may appear in the American media as a lighthearted final news item.  A Journo from the US saw a Reddit post my Daughter put up showing a video of me being assaulted by a Cat focused on my Blueberry Muffin and they want to call tomorrow to interview me about it.  I may end up as some sort of meme but hey, what was it Andy Warhol said?
