a VERY tough day!!!


I had the longest, most stressful, most annoying, extremely weird, most actionful, very surpring and shocking, most eventful day ever!

It all started at work, and it happens so often that when you start a day with an unpleasant event, you just say... if it starts like this then it will only get worse... all the signs are there for a bad day!

-------------------------------------------------------------
I had a problem with a visa card with one of the banks, I was promised to get one and asked to cancel the old one.. and after I cancelled my old one and insisted on that, ignoring all the attempts the lady at the bank made trying to convince me to keep it at least till march... I called my new bank and they simply told me that my request is rejected! What! Rejected???
But I already cancelled my old visa... damn, now I have to start all over again with all the stupid papers and requirements they ask to get a new one!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The guy who cleans our office decided to throw my jacket when I was in the bathroom -accidently- on the wet dirty floor... and since I have a BIG issue with cleanliness plus this wasn't the first time for him to do such a thing... I was extremely mad and was about to tell him that next time i'll make sure to wear my jacket to the bathroom when he's there! ... !

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My colleague got some REALLY SERIOUS THREATS- and had to report them to the police! I really wonder how stupid can some people be to think that we own the company! We're employees for God's sake... we follow rules we don't invent them..!
This made me think how dangerous it is to deal with such mentalities... and now i know for a fact that everytime im parking my car, I have to wait for someone to come so as not to be in the elevator alone early in the mornings... or not to go down to the -2 alone after work when it's late and dark!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had things in my car that I needed to drop off... so I drove all the way and ended up going back home with them still in the car making all the ugly noises while driving on the nice- well fixed streets... just because I forgot!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The most shocking, and truely dreadful phone call I got today was from a friend who told me that our close friend's dad (who's also my dad's friend) has passed away!!!
May God bless his soul and provide courage to -her and her family- to bear their irreperable loss with fortitude. I am speechless!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The end of my day wasn't any better, as I was in my favorite ice cream place, I've seen someone who.... someone who... well I am speechless again.. I'd rather not continue... !!!

I'd better go to sleep! Hoping for a better or at least normal tomorrow!

Can I at least have a peaceful sleep for a change?!!!! Well,,,ummm,,, just wondering...!

    Hmmm..well..I don't know what to say..but I paused a bit on the "we get threats" and the one about you needing escort to and from your car..you're working in a travel agency right? you're clients aren't al qaeda people booking flights to and from Guantanamo are they? cuz if that's the case..you might be included in Ayman Zawahri's next video..keep watching Al Jazeera!!

    Ok..the serious bit..Life isn't a field of roses..sometimes you do get thorns in the way..just be thankful that its only that..it can be worse..believe me..so look back..and laugh..or smile if you prefer.

    As for your friend's dad, God rest his soul..the best thing to do right now might be being with her..people find comfort in their friends.

    ah ok..my mistake, I got to that conclusion from the previous amman boston honolulu ticket for jd450, so lost baggage claims causes threats? what is exactly in that lost baggage? south african diamonds?

    Averroes... might be for some! :P
    no, actually it's the lost baggage COMPENSATION...

     
  • At January 17, 2007 , Blogger Averroes said...

    Ah ok..compensation for lost baggage..so you're responsible for compansation for lost baggage..which reminds me..I lost 10 suit cases on one of your flights ----- <--fill the space with the airline of your preference..as long as I get paid.

    I take cash only..no meal vouchers..meals are not included in my compinsation.

    Someone who made me realize that as 'averroes' wrote

    'it is through both the contemplation of the future and the disdain of the past that one can distinguish happiness..real happiness..from common content.'

    When we think that we're happy, yet in the future we're offered chances that make us realize it was not happiness .. it was just common content!

    Someone who gave me what I see as 'a wake up call'!
