I never really intended to use this blog to vent daily frustrations not related to diabetes. I just had a terrible day and felt like bitching about it. I left work in the afternoon for a job interview about an hours drive away from home and work. Right now I work a 10 minute drive from home. I'm looking for a new job because I really need benefits. It's pretty hot as hell these days, temperatures getting up into the high 30's (Celsius).
I then get stuck in bumper to bumper traffic for 30 minutes due to construction. At which point I get lost trying to find the roads with my shitty half-assed map. 20 minutes later another tire blows. FML. What the hell am I supposed to do now? I don't have CAA (same as AAA for you Americans) because I'm too cheap. I called my mum. I will just say now that gosh I love my mum! First thing she did was hand me a bottle of orange juice and said "just in case." Awww.... how sweet! I had plenty of quick fixes with glucose tablets but that really hit home! She came out with a can of that 'stuff'. Its this shit that you screw onto the tire valve and push the button. It fills it with this foamy stuff and enough air to inflate the tire to nearly 25psi. All for $11.99! So here I am on the side of a busy road now taking off the other tire and putting the one we just filled on. All the while my mum constantly telling me to stop sticking my ass out into the road. I'm now covered in sweat again and my hands look like a grease monkey's - again.
We ended up leaving my car in a friend of the families driveway near where I was broken down as we didn't trust the tire-repair-in-a-can to take us all the way home. We were still a long ways away. I finally got home at 9:00pm to look forward to a shower. Sadly no run tonight and mummers was nice enough to lend me her car. Tomorrow is a new day, we will see what it brings to my car-car. I don't know why I call it my car-car, it kind of sounds stupid but it's always been that way.
And so ends my rambling bad day vent. Not really diabetes related. It's time to call it quits and go to bed me thinks.
