That title may confuse you but I have been having a couple of weeks from hell and today was no exception. It goes like this….
me…can we go to a garden centre today
me…actually we don’t need to go to a garden centre we can get whatever I want from Homebase down the road
Get to Riverside which is where Homebase is and hubby thinking of me – who cannot walk well these days and I mean hobble basically – parks in a disabled bay, I manage to get out of the car and collect my stick from rear seat. OK you know what is coming now don’t you!!!
Both go in shop, straight to garden area, collect plants I want and bag of gravel, go to checkout and pay, cost was £22. I would say tops time in shop was 10 minutes. I do not do loitering style shopping anymore it is in – purchase – out.
Whilst hubby is putting plants and gravel in boot of car, I am hobbling across the road with my stick. Get into car whilst he takes trolley back to trolley park – we are good citizens. HUH! Maybe that will just change.
Hubby comes back, gets in car and starts it looks up and says someone has put a darn sticker on the windscreen, he puts arm out window and rips it off and I say, ”oh there is something funny on the front.”
We got fined……… yes for parking in a disabled bay with no blue badge on display.
I AM FUMING, some little jobsworth – please do not go defending I know it is their job, and yes hubby owned up straight away he should not have parked there, BUT – it is the fact some little jobsworth must have sat watching us get out of car and go in shop then come out slap ticket on-screen and, and , and this is what makes me spit feathers; took a photo in case we didn’t believe them.
Goodbye birthday money it was nice having you for a day. I am actually still shaking with anger.
We have the car on loan from my daughter as hubby is cat-sitting at her house and he is using it to go back and forth. I have been out in it twice since they went away. The first time was a disaster too. Got to tell her what happened when she comes back in case they get in touch and say…”tut tut don’t do that again”.……Can you guess who is just not going out anymore, I feel someone is out to get me each time I go out something happens. I am just so fed up and this today put the tin lid on it or as I said in my title, another nail driven in.
My friend Di has advised me to get one of those blue badge things for the future. I feel I could stick my head in the gas oven quite honestly, cept we are bloody electric! Can’t even kick the dog, not got one. I am trying as you can see to make myself laugh. It is NOT working.
