Being told they won't let me off the boat until I'm supposed to get off on the 8th January !!!!
No day's off work until then !!!
No long holiday after (ok asking for 6 months may have been pushing it a little)

Did u ever have somebody who insists on helping u with problems u dont have?
Well I have one of those. It is like they invent a problem u never noticed u had and insist on questioning u mercilessly about it.
And how do I politely tell such a person to f*ck off They are only trying to be helpful afterall.

Oh, yeah, these people, they projected their unresolved issues on you. If you react to their intrusive behaviors, you're labeled defensive. If you accept their help, you're in a way, accepting their patronizing behaviors. Helping or not, either way, they put stress on you! :(

U are very good at this. That is exactly how they are.
As well as the annoyance of saying u are defensive they have an equally annoying tendancy to tell u that the truth hurts when what is hurting is having to listen to their annoying twist on your life.
I think people who travel have a higher number of these people pursuing them with their suggestions because people who dont travel dont understand why it is worthwhile. And parents also have a high number of these types of people giving them childcare advise....
And they ask those awful questions with that awful look on their face. They will ask why do u travel so much with the expression on their face that I would have if I was asking a person why they only wash once per year. :(

Purdy you're not having a very good couple of days!

To follow on about my rant yesterday - my friend Steve got pulled over by the police a couple of nights ago because he had his fog lights on - fair enough, it's illegal. But then the copper said "I've run your license plates, a colleague of mine saw you go into the xyz club at 4pm. It's now 2am. I suspect you've been drinking." Steve replied "Actually, I was there at 930 this morning. I'm the manager." The policeman breathalised him amd of course it came up negative. The policeman told him that he believed the breathaliser wasn't working and that he had been drinking but he couldn't prove it so he hit him with a fixed penalty for driving with his fog lights on.

Jeez Mikey - those Glaswegian coppers must be on some sort of target to hit a bonus of how many fines and people they can do this side of Christmas.

They are so full of the Christmas spirit!

The pain in my hand has now subsided!!!!!!! If anyone is interested!
