A nice way to end the day!

I had a rather disastrous morning. I left the house to walk to the station in the pouring rain. A car came along and headed towards a massive puddle which sprayed me from head to foot drenching me right through. I turned around headed back home and had to change all my clothes and headed back towards the station. When I got there I told the man where I wanted to go and went to pay for the ticket but I had left my wallet in my soaking trousers. So back to the house I trundled and grumbled to get my wallet my wife said at this rate why don't you go back to bed and call it a day as it can only get worse. I could not do that as I had four classes booked to teach today so I could not let them down. When I came home I had a laugh about this morning with my wife and told her right that's my yearly bath over and done with for 2016 although I must admit I was not in the mood for laughing about it this morning. I came to my study to check my emails and there was a message from Paypal to say that I had been paid by mylot. Nice one. I had not even requested it. It must have come automatically? So that has left me with a bit of a smile on my face! Have you ever been drenched like this. I know I have seen it happen to others but this is the first time I have ever experienced it. I know the guy had done it deliberately and had he stopped he would probably now be under the plastic surgeon's knife! Anyway I am orf to my bed now. Have a great evening!

We don't have to ask for payment on this site, isn't that great. And with everybody getting paid on the same day we're all happy. Sorry about you getting soaked, perhaps the driver wasn't paying attention and didn't mean to do it.

If you do it deliberately then that is not big or clever. Accidentally is acceptable.

@garymarsh6 What can I say? I did it! I was young and it was funny. BUT I did not think it was funny when it happened to me but where do you think I got the idea to do it in the first place?

Goodness, I am sorry for your terrible morning! I have had that happen to me, and it seemed as though the person did it on purpose to me as well. I had my 3 young children with me walking-which made me more angry because they got wet too! I'm glad MyLot could end your day better than it started.

No, I haven't been drenched like that but I can imagine your frustration having to walk back home so many times. At least it seemed like the rest of your day went okay.

Yes It did fortunately. Although I did not find it funny at the time I did later!

Yes Gary, we are paid automatically when our balance is at least 10$ at the end of the previous month. You had a disastrous start of the day, I hate when car drivers are so careless.

Ker plowie right on his kisser. /back a million years ago I w as in a nice clean white uniform on my way to work at Bennett Memorial hospital when a car came too lose to the curb on tha rainy day and literally gave me an icy bath. I was almost at the hospital so I got there early went to the laundry and they had a fresh warm uniform for me. I even showered there and was on duty on time as a nurses aide. lol

Good on you Patsie. I was teaching nurses all day yesterday so I had no choice about getting myself sorted and getting there,

I think it's a good idea that they pay automatically. It stops people using sites like this as a pseudo savings account.

I think anyone walking beside a roadway has been hit. The icy , dirty, salty slush of winter has to be the worst.

Isn't it great that we don't have to ask for payment? I was walking on the pavement one day and a bus was heading for a puddle. I was going to get soaked but there was no where for the driver to go. He looked as horrified as I did.

Poor man and you. This guy did it deliberately though so I hope someone does the same to him!
