…a crack of dawn post!!
Yes, it’s early. My usual time to be awake these days, I just don’t always blog then.
It’s cold here today. Really, actually cold, not just chilly. The wind is blowing, the sun is nowhere in sight, clouds covering everything with a blanket of grey. Suppose rain is on the cards again – wish I’d planted my seeds on Saturday – they would have sprouted already with all this water falling from the heavens!!
Paid everything last night. Not that that means anything – one of my creditors sent me this snotty message yesterday. When I sent them the proof of payment I informed them that I will not stand for being treated like a bloody no-good rubbish! I’m so sick of that!! I realise there are many chancers out there, people that would lie rather than make a plan. I am however not one of them, and I don’t appreciate being treated like that. If I don’t pay you it’s because there are just not enough money to do that!
One thing that slightly bugs me – I’m getting less money currently than I did at my previous company. Yet, they’re deducting more – I will have to find out what the sliding scale for tax payments are, just to measure that against the payslip or screen shot I’ll hopefully get today from HR.
How anybody can even wonder why I feel as negative towards this government as I already do, is beyond me!
They don’t want me to work. If I do find something to do, they insist on rogering me. Quite prepared to take the money they don’t want me to earn. And then they take what little money I have, and waste it on changing banknotes and anti-smoking campaigns. When there are people without places to stay. Borders with no guards. Roads with no robots. Or surfaces for that matter. Which reminds me – Lily Radloff has written something again yesterday that irked me. I will probably have worked up another rant by the time I forged through traffic…
In the meantime – try to have a good day – in spite of yourself 😉
Murder at The Safeway
Tired of being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decides to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife, with himself as beneficiary, and arranging to have her killed.
A “friend of a friend” put him in touch with a nefarious underworld figure that went by the name of “Artie.” Artie explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000.
The husband said he was willing to pay that amount but he wouldn’t have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife’s insurance money. Artie insisted on being paid something up front. The man opened up his wallet, displaying a single dollar bill that rested inside.
Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.
A few days later, Artie followed the man’s wife into the local Safeway grocery store. There he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce department stumbled onto the scene.
Unwilling to leave any witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well. Unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings was captured by hidden cameras and observed by the store’s security guard, who immediately called the police.
Artie was caught and arrested before he could leave the store.
Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the sordid plan, including his financial arrangements with the hapless husband. And that is why the next day in the newspaper, the headlines declared:
“ARTIE CHOKES TWO FOR A DOLLAR AT SAFEWAY”
