Going Gonzo – Shower Of Shit

Easy day. Normal day.

In fact, kinda boring.

My whole plan for today went wrong.

I had every engineer over at a job in a prison. They all got past the gate. Then they were told that they had no works escorts.

In a blur, we had to find something else for them to do. Long and short, it’s a day wasted.

The prison are paying for it but the engineers assume it is fault of the office and get stroppy. Like children.

I’m managing to keep a lid on my anger but the realisation that I’ll lose a weeks pay this month isn’t helping.

Just gone eleven and 8 fags down. That’s how stressful it’s been.

16.57

I have just completed my first ever disciplinary.

18.10

I’m home now. I’ve had time to process the days events and all I can say is, it’s a Fucking joke mate!

The disciplinary went as I assumed. A little give and take. A little telling the engineer to reel his neck in. And an agreement to draw a line under it and try harder to understand the “on-site” problems and the “in office” problems.

I let that slide, but I spent 20 years on-site. I know exactly what sort of problems that can arise.

Anyway. Fuck it. I don’t care that much. It’s a job. It’s just how I feed my many addictions that I use for life avoidance.

It’s probably all punishment for saying yesterday was kinda boring.

Seeing as it is phrase of the day, I’ll use it once more.

Let’s draw a line under it.

I think I can say that today is a better day. Purely for the reason it couldn’t be any worse that yesterday.

20.41

I went round carted for a couple of hours after work.

Watched GOT.

I have to admit it’s been a weirdly dull week. The only real highlight of the week has been finding this show on Netflix.

Extremely enjoyable. You’ll just have to watch it.
