Shit that ruined your day UNTIL...
« on: January 30, 2009, 06:17:44 PM »

I constantly find myself with stories of shit that has happened to me to ruin my day, but then directly after something happens to redeem it. Or, on the contrary, I have what I think is a good day and then something goes wrong with that experience to make it a bad one.

Making the stories not quite appropriate for the Shit that ruined your day or Shit that made your day threads.

So exists this thread.

Post your "Bad day but Good thing", or "Good day but Bad thing" - stories here.




I received an email earlier this evening claiming that a library book was recalled from me. I was like "WTF? I returned all my library books at the end of the Fall semester before I left for break." I logged into the library's website and saw that the book was still checked out to me. I FRANTICALLY searched my room and found the book. Well shit, it's overdue.

THANK GOODNESS I renewed it the first week of December (so the due date would be after break on the 26th of January) - I work at the library and I didn't need that much time but I just thought that I might as well do that. I ran down to campus to the library - in the cold, cold snow - to return the book and to find out what the fines were. I explained what happened and said to the clerk, "With my luck, I bet today is the day after the grace period." - since I work there I know, though most people don't, that there is a 3 day grace period where you can return a book and not be fined, but if you return i ton the 4th day, you get fined for all 4 days. She said, "Don't worry about it, this is one of the advantages that you have..."

SCORE! Because the clerk on duty knows me (I worked w/ her last semester) she removed the fine. It would have been something like $0.40 but I never return shit late, so I'm pleased. And I had 2 minutes to go from the library to the bus stop to make the 5:00pm shuttle bus back up to my apartment. The bus was a few minutes late. Which meant that I didn't miss it  :)

I had my trig midyear today, and my day was ruined as I struggled to answer all of the problems; there is not a single one I felt confident about.

I felt better knowing mostly everyone else felt the same.

My gym has shut down for a month, so I'm either going to have to work out outside in front of people, which I don't like, or run up and down the stairs a lot. Ugh.

BUT my sister just asked me, 'Is a hippopotamus a hippopotamus or just a really cool opotamus?' which I'm still laughing about  :)

I spent my weekend worrying about family trapped in the massive bushfires here in Australia. Couldn't get in touch with them for a day.

UNTIL...

they called.

I had the anti-cancer jab today and now my arm feels like it's dead.

But later there will be pie and pancakes, so all is good with the world :D
(Not American pancakes though, which today I learned are PROPER pancakes. Just wussy English ones)

Aaah, British English and American English. I got to really know that confusion through working in a German school helping German teenagers with their English. English pancakes are more like crepes. I miss crepes, warm and dripping with Nutella...


In my case, the careers evening was getting me really down because the future is so so scary and uncertain and there weren't any writers or journalists for me to chat with. But they had a free buffet, and a few glasses of red wine and a number of olives made things seem better. For the time being anyhow. It was good wine.

This happened Monday: I was crushed to find out U2 wouldn't be coming to Detroit this year...until I realized that that meant I have a few hundred  dollars (that won't be spent on tickets) to play with.  :glasses9:

I'm broke, and I was left with children who refuse to wash dishes because they claim they can't reach the sink....UNTIL

...I threw everything out of a huge tub in the living room, which broke shit, scared them absolutely to death, and made them too scared to do anything besides wash dishes.  I now have dish-washing kids.

I'm going to have a helluva time explaining the broken shit in the living room to my roommate when she returns.  xD

I quit the band, and my housemate annex cellist of the band had been crying at her boyfriend's place, and I felt really bad about it, and was afraid she would be ignoring me or be mad and upset about it. Yesterday she was really cuddly and then asked if we could still play together. Which just made me feel so good. Also because she has a brand-new boyfriend and I was afraid she would stop hugging me or stroking my hair :P .
