Hey all, Maybe it was the carb load last night, or the fact that uncle tom's coming in from out of town soon...but I was a bit of a crab apple today.
First, some nimrod writes a check for girl scout dues and IT BOUNCES. It's five bucks a month people. I know times are tight. But I already spoke to this individual about coming to me if dues weren't feasible,
So, not only do we get docked the twenty bucks,but also some sort of a five dollar fee. So not only do we not have the dues for the last four months we also don't have an additional five dollars on top of that. We would have been better off if she would have told me to take a flying leap, she ain't giving me any money. screeeeeeeeeeeeaaaammmmm.
I have been doling out cash hand over fist cause I want the kids to have a good year. That would be fine, but I don't want to be doling out extra cause someone can't come to me and say "I don't have it".
Then of course our water heater has gone out. water all over the garage.
I go to get it fixed. I have to buy the water heater...fine, I get that.
Then I have to buy a carbon monoxide detector because the democrats in Denver have decided I am too much of an imbecile to decide what kind of detector to have in my house, the water heater has to be 'inspected' after it is installed and since it is gas and gives off carbon monoxide, I must have a carbon monoxide detector...even though I have lived in this house for ten years with a gas water heater with no carbon monoxide detector. So 25 bucks...then I must have 'new leads' or it wont pass inspection.
I tell the guy that our water heater is built on a wooden stand...and he says "Oh, we will have to send someone out to inspect, because we don't build stands. That will be thirty five dollars. And, if you want the water heater delivered it will be 79 dollars. The permit is 49 dollars."
After that it was all curses and dollar signs.
I just looked at him and said.
"I tell you what."
"Stick it in the back of my van, and I'll call handy man connection."
I loath the government.
I ate subway for dinner...total calories today 1470 so yay!
I am voting libertarian in the next election. I don't care if her name is Trixie and she does jello shots off a donkey's *ss.
Tomorrow it's back to the gym where hopefully I will burn off all this latent anger and aggression.
