Having A Bad Day / Week/ Month

Recommended Posts

actually a Decent Fella !? :D:) . Thats Ok then I suppose Biff. I was thinking Bullet and between the eyes but , Ok. now he's a decent fella, I'll leave it at that ;-) . Its not a Job I could do and sleep at night though.

The good thing about the average speed camera's is that its possible to remember where you are after the first camera and then reduce your speed drastically , or stop . I've done that a few times.

Yeah, it was my fault for not making sure the original ticket was sorted out. I know how these things come and bite you in the arse after a while so I should have dealt with it. He could have just towed the car as soon as he saw it but he knocked on about 5 doors in the street first, then left a note with his number on it. I called him and he came back and gave me a day to sort it all out, which is as decent as he could be, given his job.

Time was when you could cut the things off and move the car somewhere else but these days it just gets the old bill involved and charges of criminal damage, and once you get the local constabulary involved they have a tendency (round here anyway) to 'mark your card' as it were! also means he will definitely tow it.

I couldn't do his job either but each to his own I suppose.

The average speed cameras they're installing is on a road that has a petrol station on it so I reckon we'll be seeing lots of people parked up for a while till their average goes down, kind of defeats the object of driving fast in the first place which is getting somewhere quickly!

I had a bad day today.

But I actually started to love bad days quite some time ago.

Why?

Because the next day is usually a better day... :D

Yeah it's all about the contrast I suppose :D

That's what the guy who clamped my car said to me 'it can only get better mate!'

yeah, cheers :D

I'm not sure I follow both your logic Guys, I understand what your saying but , sometimes in my world anyway, the next days even worse. :D

and whats to stop the Barsteward from clamping your car tommorrow. He would wouldn't he . barsteward :D

you don't have my Inlaws I suppose :)

Wifes just got off the phone with another flangs wife , who's also having marital strife . She's been on the blower for about 4 hours. Wifes face is like a smacked arse or atleast more smacked than usual. His infedelity is going to be my fault also, even though we've only met a couple of times. I can sense the tension already.

No tommorrows going to be a really bad day also :D

he could try and clamp it again tomorrow but he'd end up wearing the clamp! Enough is enough! I guess it could get worse, I sincerely hope it effin well doesn't!

I am always thankful for having my girlfriend, even though we're living so far apart she always cheers me up on the phone when I've had a bad day. I had a feeling she was a 'keeper' when I first met her, we were out on the town and I ran out of money so I assumed she would also be running out, but when the ATM just laughed at my request for funds she took her last 400 baht out of her account and gave it to me. Last time I went to stay with her I turned up a bit short of cash too, had to wait a week till more funds arrived in my bank but she, and the rest of the family, didn't care.

Now all I have to do is get through this week, move house, sell the car, do well in a job interview and get on the plane on Saturday night, easy!

I shall prevail!

A few years back my farang neighbour bought a German Shepherd bitch that very quickly decimated, nay… more like nine in ten than one, the local chickens.

Most of them belonged to my father in law who loved them dearly; family lore has it that he rates them along with his grandchildren.

Her owner has a “village squire” attitude to the locals and lets his dogs do as they please; he’s paid heavily for several cows in the past.

Now por has an unfortunate tendency to take the law into his own hands when upset, something that lead to a considerable period as a guest of His Majesty in the past, so a family council of war was held.

Soon after my neighbour, who employs most of my wife’s family, went to Krung Thep for a week and left the dogs in my wife’s brothers’ care. After he returned, that dog never chased another chicken.

She looks at them and her intelligent ears go up but she never makes a move in their direction.

In her owner’s absence, some sort of educational process had occurred. I shudder to think what it was but it was certainly effective.

Yeah, I've heard of several ways they do it, don't know if its true or not but they certainly do something educational and painful for sure. Its such a shame :)

Biff, Good luck with your week. if I'm still here when you've settled in, we'll have to meet for a couple of Jugs of Beer or Coffee or something.

Yes mate, that would be nice. Dunno how far you are from Chiang Saen where I'll be for most of my all too brief visit, but we're in Chiang Rai City for a couple of days next week too :)

Will do :D the itinerary (volacnos permitting) is; Saturday/Sunday fly to Bangkok Monday/Tuesday/part of Wednesday come to fully understand why i don't want to swap one huge sprawling urban conurbation for another one (and meet up with a mate and get some paperwork sorted at some suburban Amphur) Wednesday night fly to Chiang Rai, spend a couple of days in town then head up to the Moo Ban by the river to re-acquaint myself with the squawking/howling night chorus :D so, if any of that coincides with your plans or whereabouts it would be nice to share a jug or two, I think it should be beer :D

(I'll have four wheels when in CR but reduced to 2 small scooter wheels by the time we get to Chiang Saen)

Couple of beers it is. probably thurs or fri. I need to get to town more anyway. Let me know when your in Chiang Rai if your still up for it.

That volacnos is certainly causing some grief . Been looking for a flight to UK, bloody expensive.

you should nip in and see Khandahar. He's having an Ornamental Garden Pond Dug at the moment. Its going to be a nice Job too :)

I didn't say I was having an ornamental garden pond dug. I said I was going to see the Monumental Guards on Phan Dung. We have already returned from that trip. It was a disappointment. Save your baht.

Jubby is still having a bad week but now his hearing is going as well. Ornamental garden pond dug! HA!

Who's Dug? Is he coming too? Will it be a monumental event? Or ornamental? or just mental?

seems like a small gathering is in order :) I would suggest a venue but I don't know any so I'll leave that to the residents :D We're staying at The North Hotel which is, I believe, fairly central so any location is fine by me. Friday sounds good, the 4 wheels are going back in the afternoon so it's looking like the brunch, hospital visit, lounging about (possible nap, knowing my, and my g/f's, penchant for a siesta) then beer with beer followed by beer in the evening. Looking forward to it :D

P.S. lounging about/siesta could well be substituted for shopping dependent on hormonal balance/my (perceived) behaviour leading up to that point

Ornamental Garden Pond! I have never heard about that before!

Very interesting! Is it the Garden that is Ornamental or is it the Pond that is Ornamental?

So Kandahar, is this a very costly operation to start an Ornamental Garden Pond?

When will it be finished?

Are you going to have the monks to bless your new Ornamental Garden Pond?

And are you going to have an "New Ornamental Garden Pond Warming" ?

And what are we bringing to the "Warming"?

Live fish? What fish do you prefer? What size and what color?

Shall we bring beer? Food?

Looking forward to the event!

Just give us date and time and we will be there!

Thank you!

Edit: Is there some special dress for an Ornamental Garden Pond Warming?

Sorry, I am not very updated about dressetiquette...

Personally, I think having a monument and guards is over-doing it, but it's his pond. Maybe Jubby could borrow the guards to keep the dogs/in-laws at bay?

I hope he posts some photos too :)

The police wont be available for guards today, they are busy with the state of emergency.

Well, I've just checked out the local force and they don't seem to have heard of it yet though, at least the one working on his car hadn't, the rest of the gallant band hadn't arrived for work at that stage.
