A Sunday ramble…

Photographic contest

I was going to enter a photographic contest this week; apart from the fact the first prize was an expensive camera; I was also keen because the winning photographs would be hung in the entrance to the hospital where I frequently go.

I live in a Metropolitan area made up of 6 towns and this is a result of local government reorganisation. Unfortunately, my doctor and the hospital I go to are in the next town, officially; even though the doctor is 1/2 mile away and the hospital is only 3 miles away. It makes no sense to me, and the young lady  I was supposed to send my entry to only works on Wednesdays. I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

Microwave

I went out to buy a new microwave, I bought one 2 years ago and the paint started to peel just after the warranty ran out. It went rusty and the rust actually made a hole under the turntable, I don’t understand why they don’t test the things. It’s unusable after 2 years and I can’t find a stainless steel replacement. I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

The Bank

I had a letter from the bank; the Halifax, they have to pay me some money in a few weeks time. They can pay it into a variety of Halifax bank accounts, all paying rubbish interest rates. They can pay me my interest into any bank account including Barclays but they can’t pay me the money I want into Barclays. I have to settle for a cheque sent by snail mail that will take a week to bloody clear. Fail: Halifax. I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

Solar power

My solar panel arrived from Maplin, it is supposed to have a little blue LED that comes on when it’s charging my car battery; guess what – no little blue LED. I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

Fly killer

I also had a fly killer, ultra violet to attract the flies and then it zaps them. They were buy one get one free; I bought one, didn’t get one free. I read the small print; I was supposed to order two… I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

Flash drive

I had a Sandisk Flash drive too, 16 Gb to record television on. It had a backup program on it and I thought, I might as well try it. I thought it would back up my latest photos. It backed up all the photos I had already made a backup of and ignored my latest ones… I don’t care anymore when things don’t make sense; I accept these things…

I wish this fly would stop buzzin’ around me…
