Ouch. I think my tolerance levels deserted me rather today 😕 I’ve managed to get well and truly narked, and embarrassingly sarcastic, with someone being pissy on eo because their messages didn’t get released immediately. I really didn’t do well and June and Jacqui will doubtless shoot me. Ho hum.
And then i lost my temper with an old lady. She used to live 3 doors away, long before we ever lived here and arrived to visit the other old lady 2 doors away, today. Now we live almost opposite a nasty junction and we’ve recently had double yellow lines painted with good cause. There have been several bad accidents here since we’ve lived here. I was outside and pointed out the lines and said that they did come and check now too. “Oh it doesn’t matter,” she said. “I’ve got a blue disabled badge. Besides, i’m not here long.”
4 hours later i arrived back, dodged around her car against the flow of traffic to get in my drive and went and knocked on old lady number 2’s door. I made my point, politely, that her car was an obstruction and dangerous. “Well, i’m disabled” she said (she walks perfectly well) “where else can i park.” “Hmmm… how about this nice free drive your friend has, or 20 yards down the road where it is double yellow lines?”
She was really rude and dismissive and shut the door in my face, having said she didn’t live here so my issues with her parking were not her problem.
I know you can park on double yellows if you have a blue badge, but surely you are expected to still park safely and use better parking if it is available? I think it stinks; what a bloody horrid attitude, no one elses safety or convenience matters if i have a blue badge. Horrid woman.
Maddy has spent the day making museums, doing sums and being industrious, Fran did touch typing, Amelie and Josie played beautifully and looked at books, Fran read books to them.
We all got our hair cut.
We all went out to Ferry Meadows and got blown away with Tammy and Sam, but it was fun and warm enough to be out in, which helped!
I joined Freecycle and got rid of our garden toys.
Maddy and Fran had Rainbows/Brownies and Fran went bowling with them.
I posted MORE parcels, but am now up to date 🙂 :cheer:
