So You Think You're Having a Bad Day?
November 21, 2017 2:27am CST
Ok, so it's one of those mornings. In a dream-like state you come downstairs barefoot, turn on the light and discover that soggy thing you stepped in was cat vomit. The dishwasher has decided to leak water all over the kitchen floor (Note to self: Sack the dishwasher. You really can't get the staff these days!!!) and when you raise the blind at the kitchen window you discover half of your fence panels have been dislodged by high winds and next doors cat, taking advantage of the fact your cats are in the house overnight, has left you a lovely, steaming present in the middle of your decking. The bin bag rips open when you remove it from the pedal bin and deposits last nights leftovers onto the already soaking kitchen floor. You desperately try, and fail, to stop the cats from eating a combination of veggie chilli and dishwasher water knowing this will only lead to yet more cat vomit. You arrive at work wearing nothing but your vest but comfort yourself with the knowledge that this is nothing but a bad dream. While having a coffee and doing some pre-work myLotting you realize that this isn't actually a dream and you are sitting in work in nothing but a vest. If you think that's bad, spare a thought for this guy:

I must confess that not ALL of those things happened this morning but they are things that have happened over time. Most unlike me I was exaggerating for comic effect!!!! And the going to work in only a vest thing. That has never happened. Yet!!!! Or if it has, everyone was far too polite to mention it.

I'd not heard that one before. Seems like it's one of yours!!! Although why he would get upset at losing to England at football I really don't know. Surely that's a given

@WorDazza I didn't need to know about the vomiting bit! And I'm stumped to come up with an answer to your football jibe except that what you play is not 'real' football. Aussie rules is 'real' football. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie - what's the rest of it? Oh yes, that's right. Oy, oy, oy!

@JudyEv I'm disappointed that you didn't come right back at me and mention cricket!! You're obviously not a true Aussie . I'm sorry but any sport that allows the legal use of the hands cannot be called football. The clue is in the name!!!
@wordazza my wife's cat did that vomity thing last night but I managed to remember to put on more than just a vest before leaving the house. I just checked there to be sure, so it must be something else that people are laughing at. And that camera man - tough, infuriating break!!
@WorDazza As one given commonly to public speaking and standing up in front of gathered audiences I'm always checking that my zip is up. So far things have worked out well, but I dread the day when I realise that my listeners are all staring at my swimming trunk area and smiling.

In the great scheme of things, life could be a whole lot worse :) That video reminds me of this guy

You know, if you'd quit force-feeding veggie chili to your cats, they'd probably stop staging protests! (I am positive you will find both the water on the floor (That "water" did NOT come from the dishwasher! ) and the vomit stop once the felines are given a diet high in meat with few if any veggie "fillers".) If you need me to post a link explaining what is and what is not acceptable to feed your cats, please let me know. I'd be happy to help you out. I am quite sure your fellow coworkers would let you know you weren't dreaming if you showed up to work only wearing a vest. Their response to such may not be verbal, but should still be easy enough for you to notice, even sleep-walking. Actions to notice as you arrive at work may include but are not restricted to: Coworkers rolling on the floor while laughing! Coworkers quickly whipping their phones out to snap photos of you and posting said photos to every available site online. Coworkers throwing up as you approach. Coworkers complexions suddenly turning green. Coworkers cupping their hands over their mouths while making retching noises. I quite enjoyed the bus that "stole" the cameraman's view!
Something similar really happened to our place about 2 weeks ago. Instead of vomiting, our kitten made a pile right in front of the front door (inside the house of course!). I stepped right into it in the early morning and clueless, walked back into the house... The poor cameraman!

I don't know if to be amused or horrify with your 'nothing goes right day'. The bus clipping was hilarious in a 'unbelievable' kind of way. Ha Ha. I have had days like this. I just accept with calm certainty 'If something could go wrong, it will' (Murphy's law). When that happens I just slow down and not get flustered. On days like these I just stay home or go back to my bed while it passes over.
