I went to see a local property this morning in the hope that, should we find somewhere suitable, we can arrange with the landlord/lady to escape our existing tenancy due to the damp and access issues. Property was quite nice, more than suitable, gorgeous little ‘secret’ garden around the back. Unfortunately I was told at the END of the viewing that it had in fact already been applied for through a different agent and was therefore basically off the market. Talk about a waste of time.
The agent who showed me around kindly took me to a similar nearby property which we’d enquired about at an earlier date and were told was already gone (but wasn’t). It’s not suitable really, and on the way back she dropped me off and it started pissing down with rain. I got soaked walking from the high street to the flat.
Get into the flat, dripping wet, go to fire up my laptop to find the number of the estate agents to confirm that the application for 1st property had definitely gone in, only to discover that my laptop was sat on battery. I knew it was plugged in, so did the usual checking plug socket, adapter etc. Adapter LED was off. Thought initially the adapter had gone pop, so unplugged it from the laptop and in doing so, found bite marks straight through the wire. I know for a fact it was Fudge, because he’s done the same thing to my Acer power adapter. Two fucking adapters in a month. Thankfully the Dell is under next business day warranty so they’re shipping out a new adapter (no questions asked) for Monday morning.
Using what little battery I have left, I look up the bus timetable (we don’t get regular buses out by me, it can be anything up to 2 hours between them) and discovered it was due within 5 mins. Pack my stuff in a hurry, get to the door, and can see from the window that the bus is just arriving. No bloody time to get around the corner to the stop and so I miss my bus.
To top it all off, I tried to add credit to my phone but the Orange website keeps telling me it’s having technical details and so I can’t add a card or use it to top up my phone.
So no house, soaked in the rain, broken power adapter, a missed bus and 23p phone credit. What the fuck else is today going to throw at me before it’s over?
