There’s Bad Day’s And Then There’s Bad, Stupid Days …

I know … I know … how stupid is that?

But believe it or not, that wasn’t the end of the tragic day.

It started badly when I booked an external room so the team could work on a project in peace only to discover the room was on top of a generator and it shook the whole place like we were on a boat for the entire time we were there.

Then, after the ‘cash gate’ incident [which the bank then charged me a further fee for as that account went wildly overdrawn, though – thankfully – Henry did pay me back] … I was going home and stopped at a traffic light when I looked to my left only to see a Police Car, with a policeman looking at me smiling.

“And why was he smiling?” I hear you ask.

Was it the beauty of my car?


Was it the beauty of me?

Errrrm, no.

Was it because he was just being a friendly cop?

Well, he was, but no.

It was actually because I had picked up my phone to check an address and so – as soon as the lights went green – his lights went red and blue and I got stopped and fined.

Once upon a time there was a band called The Weather Girls who sang It’s Raining Men.

Well this day, it rained shit.

That said, I’ve had way worse days of shitty rain. Ha.

Let’s hope this isn’t an omen for the rest of the week.

Took its time.

Comment by Bazza

I think a big part of the karma was inflicted on me in the 8 years of cynic. Specifically with the people I found myself working with.

Go on … give me your worst. Hahaha.

And we’re meant to believe that Miss Istabul is a food emporium rather than an HR violation?

Comment by DH

Well the best bit is you’re commenting on Henry’s bank account – not mine – so I’ll have HR look into that immediately.

Comment by Rob

You didn’t get where you are without learning about plausible deniability, but HR will be well aware of that.

Comment by John

What Rob doesn’t know about manipulating the HR system isn’t worth knowing.

Comment by DH

You went overdrawn?
You mean that account isn’t where you keep your millions.

Comment by DH

Great move by the cops to win over the community.

Comment by DH

It seems to be very effective.

Comment by Rob

Could you lend me $80?

Comment by Bazza

I think you should be asking Henry that.

Comment by Rob

Oh Robert.

[…] – last week – I received the ticket for the icing on the cake of my fucked-up, stupid day … where I was caught holding my mobile at a red traffic light while a Police Car was next to me […]
