Cursing Covid (again!) - during the current lockdown, bus services are now running on a Sunday timetable. One bus per hour. It's like being in the 1950s again! (not that I was around in the fifties, I was barely around in the seventies!)

What do you mean 1950's? We only have 1 an hour here weekdays, not that we live in the country.
That's why I drive my daughter to the station.

It's one bus every half an hour here. More the closer you get to the city.

Screaming like a girl and ripping my t shirt off in the garden.

I'm removing two compost bins and their contents. I coaxed a massive spider out of compost bin, as phobic as I am of them I don't want to kill them.

A couple of minutes later I felt a tickle on the back of my neck. I scratched it and said massive spider ran down across the front of my t shirt. so I ripped off my t shirt sending said spider flying. It is now sat in the long grass.

A photo of said beastie:

Well done for sparing it!

While I love spiders I'd still be rattled by one charging across my chest.

She got some free credit I seem to remember and her credit she had on the phone was carried over to the new sim,

Mum doesn't have a smart phone only a cheap little flip phone so just uses the credit for calls and texts, not sure she even has a bundle set up, but £20 will last her a couple of months at least :hahazebs:

Driving my daughter to the station. Still dark but no wind or rain and the moon and stars visible.
Trying to get into a good friend and neighbour's back gate after talking with his Mrs (who also works in our local shop) but there's a nail stopping that gate movement now. He's always cool about me using his back gate (no dirty jokes please). I'm a little concerned but not too much because he's always very 'switched on' .. I expect someone's tried or succeeded in nicking something from his back yard ..

Breathing in and out quite deliberately as I tried to stop myself punching a customer. Success. Now cooling off on a toilet seat until the prick has gone. I need my job.

Reminds me of a time when I was in a similar situation many years ago.

Being on the verge of punching my boss I hid in the loo for a good cry, (being about to hand in my notice I didn't want to risk a bad reference). Eventually, still not feeling better, I decided to go to my bosses senior to explain why I'd decided to go home early and that in any case I'd soon be handing in my notice.

Result!!

Said senior agreed that my section head was indeed an aggravating rsole and told me that when he had first joined the office he'd been doing my job and one day he'd actually got as far as taking off his jacket and rolling up his sleeves ready to give him a punch!!! So well knowing the temptation he told me to walk back in the office, head held high and do bugger all work for the remainder of my time and no worries about a reference as he would give me a good one!

Revenge is a dish best served cold an' all that and I was happy to be that cold dish!
