Monday Grumbles

You know, some days just aren't worth crawling out of bed for, like today.  Cue the Benny Hill music...

I woke up to snow, began my normal morning routine, then went outside to warm up the truck, returning to the warmth of the house to wait. A bit later I return to the truck prepared to drive to work only to find out that the damn thing automatically locked. So here I am standing in the snow, the truck us running, but I'm locked out...with no spare key. Disgusted, I make my way back towards the house and... fall, jarring my bad back and hurting my bad knee.

Once inside I call work to explain to my boss why I was going to be late, then I phoned the police. The police informed me they could not help and instructed me to call a locksmith. So I call some locksmiths, but due to it being so early in the morning nobody is answering their phones, go figure.

By this point I'm on the verge of crying and call my Uncle who tells me to call the Fire Department. Sooooo I call the Fire Department and guess what, no one answers the phone. So I call my Uncle back and he told me to call a certain tow company and instructed me to tell the guy that he told me to call.

So I call the towing company, and finally, someone answers AND is able to help. Yaaay! It only cost me $50, but hey, I was just happy to have the door unlocked and able to get to work.

So on my way to work, someone takes a corner and sliiiiides towards me, missing me by inches, to sliiiide right in front of me, passing me, and sliding into the other lane, pretty as you please! No worries, nobody was hurt. He/she was able to correct the vehicle without further incident.

I get to work and I'm sitting at my desk when a spider decides to visit, almost falling in my lap. Now, if you know me, you know I don't do spiders. Nope, nuh uh, no way! Somehow I managed to scoot away without squealing while Spider scurried happily away.

My back is currently giving me the-what-for, but my knee isn't too bad....so far.

I think today would have been better spent at home in bed.

  1. I will focus on the bit about your knee not being too bad.

    It sounds like a horrible day, indeed. But look on the bright side, it's over.
