Not Happy Schizz Morning

Up early, had to go to office to pick up laptop before going onsite.
Forgot badge, no one in the office.
Drive back home get badge.
Back to office, pick up laptop.
Over to customer site.
Email from customer arrives just as I park up: "Working from home today."


****.



Stopped at bakery for a conciliatory pain aux raisins. They didn't
have any left. Had to have pain au chocolat instead.


All this with major shoulder pain.

Gah.


@10:30 work done: zero.

Drive to the customer's house and demand that his wife gives you a shoulder massage?

Go see a 'Bali' (sp) lady physio, who sorts mine and the missus aches and pains with various treatments, the needles mostly being the most long lasting and effective?

You're right ZF, I should get to the chiro/kine but just don't have the time this week.



@BF: Why you......

I work for a French company. Arrived early here in Maidenhead to join a phone meeting. They cancelled the meeting because most of the French and Swedes who were to also join are on holiday. Most work stops for a month in summer.

I’d be more worried about the highly caloric pain aux chocolat …

Yep. The bakery saved you from yourself and your borderline fetishistic desires there.

Put the back out this week, which seems to have migrated up top now.

I had a double dead shoulder, I looked ridiculous, in the end I manned up and went and saw a nice doctors with a big needle. He pumped a load of 'roids in the joints and I'm now ok, it's just I find myself getting aggressive and my [email protected] has fallen off, as for a shizzz day, I have been at the mercy of the NHS since 11am, they've stuck me like a pig in search of blood and have now confirmed they are going to fill me up with pills for a week. All this the night before I decamp the family to Spain for a few weeks.
