Good morning folks!
Looking at the post I did yesterday, I realise that I apparently lost a day 😉
Apparently time flies when you’re having fun…
Today is already a bit of an abortion.
The plan was to get up at 5am, and be ready to leave for the UIF offices at 6am.
Get the kid to drop me off so I don’t have to worry about a car while I’m there, get in, fill in the forms, hand in my application and get out.
Suffice it to say the plan did not quite work the way I thought it would.
All because I could not get my ass out of bed early enough!
Wish I knew why I have this major issue to get up in the morning!
Maybe I should get a nightshift job – at least then I’ll not have an issue getting up in the mornings 😉
Suppose I’ll still be early enough to not have too much of a line, and if I have a line to deal with, it’s only my own fault.
I’ll just be sure to have water, something to graze on, enough smokes, a book, ipod, earphones.
The ipod and earphones were missing the first time I had to stand in lines for UIF.
Had to go to the FNB in Orange Grove to get my benefits – In 1998 – many moons ago!
Used to have to stand in Louis Botha avenue, listening to the honking of the taxi’s – every time I hear them hoot, I think back to those days!
At least, with the earphones, I won’t have to listen to the people around me – I’ll just be wrapped up in my own world.
And I’ll clip the ipod to my brastrap so they can’t reach out and take it.
My gorgeous iPhone has been charged, so I can do FB updates if I see anything that takes my fancy 😉
Be it sleeping officials, strange people in the line with me, maybe even something good or at least funny…
Let me leave you to it.
Hope the day is spectacularly productive 😉
Or just time to while away until it’s time to start the long weekend.
If you’re travelling, please do it safely!
Two Red Ears
A blonde with two red ears went to her doctor. The doctor asked her what had happened to her ears and she answered, “I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang – but instead of picking up the phone I accidentally picked up the iron and stuck it to my ear.”
“Oh Dear!” the doctor exclaimed in disbelief. “But, what happened to your other ear?”
“The jerk called back!”
