I imagine self as the town crier ringing a bell, yelling it is New Year! Ha! Ha! Well, in 6 hours for my little red dot!
The work day is long and I am still at work.
I had to manage lunatics todays as seriously, I had two irate customers shouting at my minions. My minions were not at fault and I do feel for them. We had to call the police as they were mentally unsound.
I listened and placated them. I felt like shouting back but I held my tongue as I too experience the same poor service for other services I seek to buy from vendors. I put self in their shoes but I would stop at going ballistic lest I face the men in blue too – not the men in black..ha ha I would not mind meeting Will Smith! 😀
I had a idiot from my Telco service calling me to say that a specific appointment I fixed with them to enter my premises to sort something out, was “unsure” – hmm….I know the feeling now of what it is like to be irritated! Grr!
To be away from work to be available for personal matters, I have to apply a day of leave. A day is precious to me and I sincerely hope that those morons will keep to their word to ensure that the appointment is kept.
How difficult can it be for morons to find a valve to turn on a service? It seems horrendously difficult for them.
I remind self that it is the New Year season and everyone is in the festive mood. I should relax and let them figure it out as to if they will show up or not. Sigh! Just do not waste my one day of precious annual vacation time.
I wonder what the rest of the world is doing now? Busy shopping and stocking up the fridge for tonight’s big do and or a long weekend party?
Or spending quiet time with family? I really wonder….
I wonder if the homeless feel any warmth during this holiday season and if they have shelter some where, be it a cardboard box or somewhere?
I also wonder about the rich and famous in their mansions and a fleet of Rolls Royces or Lamboghinis parked in the majestic winding driveways…..how will they while away their New Year’s?
I suppose they will have a maestro to conduct their orchestra or we call a “live” band as they have guests dressed to the hilt in their finest…having canapés and champagne as they do their a tete a tete amongst the rich and famous.
Life is different for the different folks around the world.
Regardless….may everyone have a lovely new year celebration, be it a cookie shared amongst many or a feast fit for a king. To each their own so long as the better off can remember the less able.
