I wasn’t quite sure who to address this letter to. So, if you’re reading it…it means you give a damn…if you’re reading it and you really don’t care…thanks for reading it anyway;)
I’ve had a pretty hectic week. So much so that this morning i considered not being my normal little ray of sunshine…then again, the thought of it freaked me out a little…so here I am once again, all smiles and laughing at the horrid week I’ve had..cause everything about it was stupid.
Monday started out a little bit rough. Big bossman and little bossman left for our clients in Namibia early on Monday morning, so I was left running the company for the next 3 days…hurray hurray! Except for one little glitch. I wasn’t actually at the office on Monday. Do you guys have any idea how hard it is to control unloyal slaves when you can’t actually see them? So on Tuesday i decided to abandon the thought of going to the clients and opted to rather go to the office. Which turned out to be a big mistake.
I was stuck in traffic for 3 hours trying to get to the office…*sigh*. Upon my arrival at the office, i realised that the slaves were doing the exact opposite from what they were supposed to be doing. I threw a neat rubylike tantrum…..which resulted in the desired reaction from the slave, and my insides were in harmony again. That is….they were until i spent another 3 hours stuck in traffic trying to go home….the joys of living in joburg i tell you;)
The big catastrophe struck on Wednesday morning. My phone was dead. I tried to charge it – nothing. I tried switching it on – nada! I tried taking it apart, putting it back together and then switching it on – still niks! noooooooooo!! I was at work without a phone. That meant that i would have to spend the whole day phoneless….oh boy! Why is this a catastrophe you might wonder….well, let me put it this way….1. The boss tried to phone me from Namibia, no joy! and freaked out because for some reason he couldn’t get through to the office either….he thought we had been burgled and killed or something. 2. Jack tried to contact me on several occasions during the day, and managed to get himself into a nice little tizz because he couldn’t reach me. 3. I was freaking out cause i felt totally isolated from the world. Yes yes, i know i have e-mail and msn and blogger and stuff….but it’s just not the same OK? Not having a phone is a gigantic crisis in my life:(
I’ve managed to get my old phone to work, but I’m thoroughly disgusted to think that my beautiful, 3 month old phone is lying in my handbag absolutely useless! I guess i should be grateful that for now at least i have an old phone I can use. And at least i have most of my telephone numbers saved on my PC…so all is not lost;)
Thursday was relatively uneventful…thank goodness. The only thing that managed to disturb my tranquil world was the fact that the phone people won’t listen to me. I’m 99.99% certain that the problem is the battery…but they won’t even test that without sending away for 3 weeks…argh!!!!! Do they not understand my predicament??
This morning however was the cherry on top. I didn’t sleep all that well, as i was a bit worried about a friend of mine, and this dude that’s been haunting my dreams for the last week has once again showed up smiling on my dreamland doorstep. Very odd….but I’ll write him a letter to discuss the matter with him at a later stage. I got up at quarter to 6(a bit later than usual), had a shower and prepared to blow dry my hair. My blow dryer was ominously quiet. Crap!
I finally threw it to the ground where it magically started blowing hot air again…odd. So i dry my hair, plug in my “oh so fancy American“straightener, check that the little light came on and waited the required 20seconds before trying to straighten my hair. And then………….the straightener was ice cold. So it’s on but it ain’t heating up. Double crap!
After throwing a little tantrum, and making peace with the fact that I’ll be late, i managed to scratch out my very first, really old, really small straightener. Thank goodness it still works…….but it takes ages to heat up, and it takes really really long to straighten my long hair with it as it is so small. I waltzed into the office at 9…half an hour late…dressed to kill and wearing a near hysterical smile. At least my hair looks as pretty as my outfit…despite the drama i had this morning!
so yes, i had a not so nice week. I initially thought it was horrid, and then realised that I’ve had much worse. This was nothing. So……to the dufus responsible for my week……..bring it on bitch! I’m a strong baby…i can take it;)
P.S. Yes yes yes….i know i said I’m back and all…but things have been a bit hectic OK? I’m trying my best…i promise! oh, and yes, I realise that unloyal is not a word…but i like it….so i’m using it.
