Two downers today :O(
Netbenefit have sent me a invoice for two more years domain name fees for my company that hasn’t existed for months. £80! £50 of which is “administration fees”, I *know* there isn’t £50 of work there, greedy b’st’rds. When I called to complain the snotty bloke on the other end of the line said “don’t pay it”. Yeah, right. They know my credit card details, I ain’t leaving it at that.
A really good coffee usually cheers me up. We have good coffee at work, but we don’t have a filter machine, just cafetieres and I don’t like the floaty bits you get.
We have a nice coffee takeaway place (Pret a mange) near work, and as I had mistakenly brought a frozen meal that requires a grill (d’oh) I thought I would go get a McDonalds Italiano burger and a nice mocha coffee. As usual Ann placed an order for a mocha too.
Pret give you takeout in paper bags. Why I didn’t use my McDonalds tray that I keep in the car for just these occasions I don’t know. As I went round the roundabout at 40mph the bag with the coffees in fell over. I thinks to myself “I’ll be clever, I’ll stop that happening again by placing the bag between my legs”. I picked up the coffee bag and poured hot coffee all over my car seats, all over my coat and all down my legs, while still hammering along at 40.
So … no coffee … boiling hot liquid down my sensitive parts … a stained, sticky car seat …
…. but at least my car smells a bit nicer ;O)
