How Was Your Day?

Posted by Sunday on Oct 15, 2008 at 12:54 am in Apocalypse

Things that happened to me today:

  • I got up at 6:30 – in the morning – to meet movers scheduled to arrive at 7:00.
  • Movers did not arrive.
  • Called movers, was told they’d call me back when they could locate the driver.
  • Did not call me back.
  • Heard outrageous smashing noises outside, discovered that neighboring building is having roof replaced.
  • Called movers, was told driver would be along shortly.  4 hours later.
  • Or rather, three days later since they were supposed to come last Friday.
  • Got phone call from dispatcher asking me where the hell I was because the driver was having trouble at my address.
  • Went outside, could see no driver or moving equipment.
  • Called movers, told them driver must be at wrong address and was put on hold.
  • Saw delivery driver come walking around a corner, waved at him.
  • Driver was mean.
  • I yelled at driver.
  • Driver tried to walk away from me.
  • I yelled at driver again.
  • Driver refused to place our delivery cubes in our own parking area and gave no reason – see “driver was mean”.
  • Driver then refused to place cubes in a red curb zone, even though the zone was not a fire zone.
  • Driver made me stand in a parking spot across the street while he got the moving cubes.
  • Driver was then AWOL for 20 minutes while I stood in parking spot.
  • BMW lady attempted to back into spot where I was standing despite my yelling and waving my hands.
  • BMW lady then flipped me off.
  • Cried.
  • Driver reappeared with moving cubes and was mysteriously nice, though still wouldn’t place cubes in parking area.
  • I went to start unloading our belongings and discovered that roofers next door had totally blocked side entrance.
  • Went to rear entrance and discovered that workers on own building were sealing hallway floors.
  • Walked to bank instead.
  • Walked to Starbucks, was treated like shit.
  • Was unsurprised.
  • Went home, tried to hire some Mexicans to carry my stuff.
  • Mexicans pretended to not understand what I was talking about.
  • Called moving companies to hire labor on short notice.
  • Was literally laughed at.
  • Cried.
  • Went to “Yogurt Bucket” as we now call the neighborhood froyo joint.
  • Went home deciding a shower was in order.
  • Discovered shower knob was no longer functioning and spun uselessly.
  • Cried.
  • Watched internet television.
  • Tried writing about science fiction to feel better.

I think I left out a few things.
