Something so simple, but it appears there are a few people who do it. Check the rear lights of their car.

So many without brake lights, or even just one of the three working. Yesterday one with a rear indicator that wasn't working. I let him in front of me, as I saw the side blinking flashing.

Completely irresponsible and accident-in-waiting.

If I notice someone with an issue of no working lights, and I get the opportunity to tell them about it, like pulling up beside them at the traffic lights, i will always do so. I think it's a really helpful thing to do, and so far everyone has been appreciative about me doing so. Prolly thinking me a crack head all the while, but hey, if I can help them avoid a rear end collision, then crack head I continue to look.

If you own a car, please check your rear lights in a large window. It's not hard to do.

Bought some smarties the other day and noticed their colours weren't as sharp, bright or shiny as I remembered them. Then I noticed the packaging had a bold change to it. A statement written across the front "No ratificial colours or flavours"

Hmmm.... I know they are bad for you, but geez, with the artificial garbage attached, they were much prettier sweets!

Work and stuff

Have been itchy footed for a while now. I don't know what I want to do, but I do know it's not this. Not in it's current state anyway.

Have been doing some thinking and am waking up to thinking about what I DO want to do, rather than focusing on what I DON'T want to do.

It would appear that I need to build up my business from the ground up, re-do website, get new business cards, then market. Get some clients happening, instead of ONE client. Mr W, I love you, but I need more clients, not just you. Three jobs in 13 months do not make a very good business for me. Having said that, feel free to keep sending me your work as needed. I will always work with you!

So...what else do I want? Other than working for myself that is. Well, I have always wanted to do one sort of work. I'm going to look into courses - it's a niche market, and I'm not too sure how even to try to find work in it, but I'm aiming for that instead.

Mind.... If I get an interview for one of the three apps currently out there, I will do my best to move on. Just being sensible.

I don't appreciate it

I can't believe it. I stood up for myself today and told someone who has been bugging me for ages to pull their head in and actually used the words "I don't appreciate this being pointed at me!"

Gah. Sometimes good to have a shirty day.

This department has been pee-ing me off for years. Finally took a bad day for me to figure out I didn't give a crap about making them feel good, but needed to have my say and to be heard and not be shut down by the manager (hah! That's a title I wouldn't give that person, but I digress) via another rude email.

I don't go out of my way to make it harder for others to do their job. Heck, I even go out of my way to help out and do stuff that (oh forbid!!!) ISN'T in my PD. Thing is, this whole dept is so bogged down by stupidity. There isn't a person in this place who hasn't been pee-ed off by them.

This will be the reason I leave my current job; dealing with these people. And yeah, sure, I'm likely to encounter similar elsewhere, but at least it will be a new face I want to punch in the nose.
