Some idiot, most likely one of the demonites roaming our complex after school as the have either no supervision or just plain naughty went and stuck a broker washing peg into my gray fibre connection box, damaging the connection…and I now need to pay a call out fee to get it fixed…
What astonish me is that the company that installed the fibre cables and boxes in our complex, placed these gray boxes at such a stupid place, where anyone have access to fiddle with these box and the boxes has no locking mechanism.
This weekend I am going to buy one of the hinge locking thingies and pop ribbit it to the box to allow me to lock it….
High - Last exam done and dusted for this semester
High 2 - Got a new tattoo over the weekend, found a really awesome artist. Planning my next ones with him
Low - Probably exam nerves but barely slept again last night
High: Exams are over. Students are away till 15 July
Low: After being helluva busy for so long, the sudden slow-down is jarring. Hope I can get some stuff done, and maybe catch up on some movies/series in the background
High: This unemployed life is not so bad.
Low: It's only been two weeks, so I am in a "honeymoon" phase
HIghest: Already had a final interview, have a final one coming up, but I know that they are just going through the motions as they have already been telling people about me and have another interview as a backup lined up for next week. I am either insanely lucky or my skills etc are really that scarce and in demand. Probably a combo of both.
High-ish: Having to plan for extended periods of little income has forced me to be more circumspect with spend, things I would normally buy without thinking, Steam specials and the like, I really have to think about and I am actually happier for not spending willy nilly.
Low - Almost got taken out by this schmuck in a BMW, came flying over from the far left lane, didn't even look, almost went right into my car and I had to swerve into another lane to avoid him. He continued to drive at full speed across 4 lanes. At the red robot he put his hand up as if to apologise, and then when I wasn't looking he pulled the zap at my 5-year-old.
Low - being safe is underrated in SA. had a silver polo pull up at our house and try steal the car , CAP saw and gave chase but they got away , the car was old and very hard to steal so thank goodness its still with us, but they broke the ignition and door lock , had to have to towed. all this at out front gate and and its a creche during the day. scary what could have gone wrong.
[censored]. Glad you guys are ok Snow and Coffeeboy.
I detest actually driving anywhere now. Four out of five times that I go out now there's a near accident because of the [censored] driving here. But hey, when laws aren't enforced, this is what you get.
@DG So true hey. And I have to be on the roads at least 3 hours a day. It's so stressful. Part of my job also involves driving all around Gauteng for interviews and photoshoots so there's that as well. It's a nightmare.
@Teb Yeah, couple more years then we're off again too
