I can't see! - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
I can't see!
Today has not been a very successful day at all.

Firstly - I would have liked to get into work earlier than usual as I wanted a longer lunch break... I asked Misty to wake me at 7:30, which she did. I did manage to get out of bed by quarter to... but still didn't manage to leave the house any earlier than usual. Strike one.

The reason for my long lunch break... I wanted to go into Romford to pick up the glasses I ordered on Saturday. I have had the same pair of glasses for the last three years or more... (most probably more!) and would like a pair of prescription sunglasses. I was not early enough on Saturday to pick them up the same day - so I arranged to pick them up this lunchtime. Can you imagine how I felt when I got there and they were not ready? Miffed does not do me justice... Fucked off beyond comparison would only be getting closer. Strike two.

On my way to the opticians the heavens opened... and I got exceptionally wet. I had brought an umbrella into work this morning - but left it here as it wasn't raining when I left just before 12:00. On my way to the opticians I purchased a new umbrella from M&S as I left the nice one I'd got from there before on a train a while ago. Upon leaving the opticians I notice it has stopped raining. Strike three.

I now have the choice of collecting my glasses this evening... which would mean leaving work early and having to make it up some other day which I can't do this week as almost every day is organised for something or another... or tomorrow morning... if they open early enough.

If this red mist before my eyes clears any time soon - I may update you, dear reader, about my lovely weekend...

Why the eff didn't they call you on the mobile number you so thoughtfully provided them on Saturday!?

This is why I always call them first to check if glasses / contacts are ready .. never assume efficiency in others :o) ... doubt you'll be needing sunglasses for a while anyway!
