i trust you as far as i can throw you...

i was going through all my post drafts hoping to find something to post today... cause my nails are too long to type ... yeah that's the main reason why i didn't want to blog today... cycadellic* baby hehe... typing difficulty!!... i mean if a girl has to choose between typing and beautiful nails... gha... no contest... anyway reducing my typing speed... and here we go :)


i received the offer from the new employer, looking good! didn't blow me out of the water or anything but I'm satisfied, so now i still have to deal with resigning properly... my boss is in quite a polite and foul mood... what an odd combination yes? so not making it easy for me to break the news... and she's going to one of our most difficult client's this morning... so i didn't want to add to her bad mojo... so I'm leaving it for this afternoon or Thursday, cause tomorrow is a public holiday!!! heritage day... I'll have to google it and make sure what's happening tomorrow... i know... i know... very unpatriotic of me...

i never told you guys about my plumbing problems... hehe... so the pipes were installed... and of course literally blew off the first time i opened the water... so that was a bust... and of course trust Batman to come to my rescue... he fixed the pipes... i apologise for all the nasty things I've ever said about you Batman cause honestly you surprise me sometimes... before i go on with the sad story of the appliances, another batman tit bit... my car is now 3 years old and no longer under warranty, so i don't have to have it serviced for an arm and a leg at the manufacturer... so i asked batman, if i offer you X amount of money would you please service my car, totally expecting him to take the money and laugh his evil laugh... he said... ag please... i don't mind servicing your car sweets... no problem, no payment please!!... so another apology... i am so glad he's doing this, i can sure do with the saving! so a few feathers for your robin hood hat batman, I'm sure your new batgirl won't be liking this one bit... but hey it seems bearing you two healthy sons made quite an impact after all... hehe...


so the second time i used the washing machine i didn't secure the draining pipe... oh dear... i was actually standing in the kitchen reading something and didn't notice the waves of water under my feet... Jay was looking for something to eat and when he said... "what is going on here?" as if it was my fault... it was everywhere... oy... so basically i just don't trust those damn pipes... i check them for any leakage every 5 minutes while the machines are on... and then every other 2 minutes if the draining pipes are still in place... it's a horrible sad day when you loose your trust in your appliances i gotta tell you...


* the spelling of cycadellic is prolly wrong... in the spirit of heritage day... forgive me :)

oh boy... i flooded my kitchen twice (ages ago) and damien did it once (not too long ago) and i was paranoid about where the water was going forever afterwards!
:D
glad batman is helping out!

Sunny said...

wow, glad to hear that I'm not the only one who suffers from bad-manufactured pipes... I mean I totally understand you. The worst thing about them is that you don't know about a leak until the whole room is flooded.

The Jackson Files said...

That's great news re: Batman. Really great news.

And good luck for your resignation. I'm pretty certain it seems worse now than it will be when you are actually doing it.

Me, I LOVE resigning and skip in to hand in my letter with a "hahahaha, you should have paid me more" attitude.

Sadly, I will never be able to resign again as my boss/Dad will disinherit me.

Sigh.

Tamara said...

LOL at the Jackson Files.

All the best with the resignation and glad you finally found a use for Batman ;-)

Ruby said...

lol.....now didn't i tell you that would happen?? the washing machine thing i mean...ha ha ha ah ha.....erm, ok sos, going to stop giggling now:)

i'm glad about the whole Batman thing.....

Good luck with resigning hun....I'll be holding thumbs that everything wil go smoothly:)

Kingcover said...

I had to laugh at your labeling for this post - batman's plumbing problems ;-)

I don't think there's a good moment to break bad news of any sort at any time so just tell your boss that you're leaving and you'll be expecting a brand new car as a thank you for working there all those years. (Just make sure you have a head start on her and have your car engine already running).

p.s. psychedelic.

Buddapesty babyyyy

sweets said...

tjomma... yes that's what i am TOTALLY paranoid :)~

sunny... of course, only in a perfect world would we catch it just in time :)~

tam... who knew right?! :)

rubes... yes i know you are so enjoying this LOL

king... i just hope she takes it well... thanks for the spelling... i actually googled it and got the same spelling i used, but i KNEW it was wrong :)

Kingcover said...

Whaaaaat?! You mean there are TWO people in the world that spelt it incorrectly! *Gasp, shock, horror*. Hmm I wonder if his name begins with B and ends with N and has 4 letters in between ;-)

Bad pipes are never good!

Slyde said...

when you first mentioned your plumbing problems i thought you were going to tell us you were having trouble going to the bathroom..

phillygirl said...

aw sweets, what a mission re: the plumbing problems ... but on the plus side, Batman seems to be really helping out so enjoy the up-side :)

Have a fab public holiday!

NewlywedCentral said...

I seriously couldn't pay attention to what your blog was saying by the fact that a huge man peeing on children was staring at me... seriously :)

Southern Sage said...

The Blonde Blogshell said...

We flooded our entire upstairs section (carpets and all) so badly that it eventually started trickling down the stairs to our ground floor!
I def. feel your pain!!
