So life handed me a bunch of lemons this week…The saying goes, “Life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” I say screw that! I’m going to make me some lemon bars.
Where do I start? Let’s see I can think of at least 4 things this week that put a damper on it…2 you already know, but I’ll elaborate more in this post.
|Work is going crazy. Customers complaining left and right. ”Give me my solution now!!!”||Just got to deal with this one. Step by step. It’s slowly normalizing. I don’t know though, next week could be just as bad. We’ll see.|
|Work computer crashes!||Luckily I had the essential backed up on my 2ndary workstation. Still sucks though…you get so used to all the icons in the right place. Received my replacement hard drive…going to send it in for re-imaging and everything on Monday. I guess the plus side is that everyone gives you an extra, “it’s okay his computer crashed,” comment when dealing with crazy customers above.|
|Bought a tv tuner on eBay. It doesn’t work.||Pulling apart my dash, getting everything setup, only to find out the entire device doesn’t work! I guess I got some good exercise…Hopefully the eBayer will live up to his “satisfaction guaranteed” statement on his auction. Otherwise kiss $70 goodbye!|
|My mobile phone breaks…||The damn antenna broke off! And Brownie had nothing to do with it. It just fell off. I guess the abuse I gave it took its toll. So I called wireless company up, and bought a new phone. Guess what? They’re paying me $11 to get a new phone!! Sure I had to renew my 2 year contract, but I’ve been with them for over 12 years now. Who’s this mystery company? Sprint!|
There you have it. Lemonade, Lemon Bars, whatever. I still hate lemons…except when you make some awesome pasta dishes with them…they taste pretty good on fish too. You had any lemons recently?
