It seems like some of the tradesmen are back at work after the holiday. Today our ensuite shower was delivered to site. It was supposed to be a triangular one, but this one was round and it had a seat in it. Hey, the seat was cute and probably functional FOR A MIDGET. Gord said he could hardly turn around in it. FFsake. So after a flurry or emails we are trying to get that resolved ...let's just see. I know this is only the beginning and we will have a lot of screw ups all along the way.
It's slow going in the dead of winter.
Gord is trying to do all the little fix ups here before we move. Dishwasher, stove... leaky taps... all sorts of shit.
Went to Wal Mart today to return two kitchen mats I bought last week. One for the patio door and one for the sink area. When I got them home I realized they didn't have rubber backing on them....both the dog a me were doing a dance on them for awhile. When I brought them back to customer service... she asked me the reason for return... I said they didn't have any rubber backing and I was nursing a mild concusion because of that. I guess sometimes people don't get me ...she said she understood and went on in great detail to tell me about the kitchen mats she has. Her kitchen mats made grooves on her floor and she did not like them. I had no idea what the hell she was talking about. Did she buy mats that have steel tongs underneath them?... I don't know. Then like the stupid ass I am I keep the conversation going and told her I had tried to put non slip sheets underneath mine. She had no idea what I was talking about and continued talking about the ridges on her floor from the mat's she bought. It was like we were both on different planets. OY. Then after that I took a Tylenol and tried to get the computer voice of the 'Under 10 items'.. voice that booms out from the express line ....GO TO NUMBER ONE...GO TO NUMBER TWO.. GO TO NUMBER THREE!!!!!!!! Out of my head. Shut the hell up.
As I was standing in line in the return section this is all I could hear..........and I had three little kids in front of me repeating it. They were pretending they were directing traffic. Cute yes...annoying yes. They were actually quite engaging. But as they were bouncing around me trying to get in the pretend express line when they heard the message on the loud speaker ... they kept ramming into me on the railing .Then I had a change of heart. It was just a simple matter of putting my foot down..under theirs. One down, two down, three down....then my work there was done.
The mom appeared no wiser....kids fall don't they?
Balonie ..making a resolution for 2011...be kinder and gentler.
