Wasting Time…

Well, What a waste of a day, more or less.

The managing agents for my landlord had arranged for an engineer to come round today to do the Gas Safety Check. Sometime between 8am and 1pm, so I booked a half day off work and secretly longed for him not to come battering on the door at 7.55am like he has done the previous 2 years.

So, as soon as the alarm clock went off at 7am I was up and in the shower and by 8am I was washing up the dishes after my breakfast of toast and 2 boiled eggs. Then I waited… 9am came and went as did 10am, 11am strolled by and noon was spotted lurking in the garden… I made lunch and looked at my watch 12:47pm, “Typical!” I thought, “The time I get up before 8am he’ll arrive at 1pm on the dot” he didn’t…

So I called the agents to discover that the guy dealing with it was off until tomorrow, the girl who answered the phone took my number and said she’d call the engineer to find out where he was, that was at 1.45pm…I’m still waiting for her to call me back!! When I called back no one answered the phone, I’m only worried that whoever kidnapped the engineer went back to the HQ and kidnapped the receptionist! I’ll be counting to 100 slowly before calling them tomorrow to impart a piece of my mind…

I guess it wasn’t a complete waste of a day, I sat on OK Cupid and devised a test, why don’t you try it, it’s imaginatively entitled, The Am I Open To Drugs Test :)
