Shit... no, man....
I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man...
But that's me. Recovering from a SERIOUS case of the Monday's.
Well, my Monday started like this:
I pack and get ready to leave for the week to Salt Lake, Nevada, and parts unknown. I walk the dog, and take off. But whoops, forget to load shit into my car.
My car breaks down. AGAIN. It died a week ago in Billings. It took the dealership 3 days (and $700+) to fix the car. Same exact problem with the radiator blowing. This time, instead of city limits, I'm in the middle of nowhere. And my engine seizes. I'm supposed to be picking someone up at the SLC airport, and now I'm 4 hours delayed.
I get to the dealership, tell them they're going to fix the car at no cost (since the first dealership didn't do it right) and get them to put me into a rental car so I can continue on my trip. They stick me in a rental with a half-flat tire, hoping I wouldn't notice. I make them fix it, which delays me another half hour.
I'll count that one as strike 2.5....
The rest of the day isn't bad. I meet my counterpart, hit up some stops in SLC, and then drive to Elko. We book at this "vintage" hotel/casino....
- The rooms are haggard
- The carpets are stained. Badly.
- She sees dried blood on her walls. I see dried boogers on mine.
- We have Refridgerators instead of refrigerators. And apparently refridgerators don't refridgerate very well (mine's warm).
- Best of all. No hot water. Apparently instead of water heaters the hotel gets hot water from a geothermal area in the city. And the city is having issues.
"I'm sorry, sir... you should have hot water by midnight tonight, or sometime tomorrow in the early AM..."
So this is me at the moment... while typing this post. It was a 14 hour day of frustration and disappointment, mingled in with a little bit of fun and jokes.
For the most part, my blood pressure was spiked. I wanted to kick a little kitten through the goalpost uprights. Twice.
I'm starting to calm down a little, but I'm really REALLY hoping Tuesday is a better day than Monday was....
So... on that note... how YOU doin??
