See my hand up there?
Yep that is me waving my hand like a Freak Flag
What you are about to read is a Public Service Announcement. Brought to you by me, the creator of the new corporation PWHSPBASS or People Who Hate Stupid People But Are Sometimes Stupid. lol
PSA~ Do NOT under any circumstances allow yourself to do anything that requires the thought process while you are ill-no matter how simple the task may seem, simply refrain and ask for help. If you do not heed this warning you will be sorry. I know I was.
I have been ill since Tuesday-very ill. I am finally feeling better thank you and I will spare you the details but I assure you there were points where I swear I saw the swish of the Grim Reapers cloak.
(yeah yeah that is a vampire..it was as close as I could get..sue me lol) Anyway I obviously wasn't cooking during my time with The Plague so I resorted to ordering out in order to feed my family.
Anyway my first attempt at getting food to the house was a success. I grew cocky. Emboldened by my victory
I tried it again the next night.
Bad move. This time it required me to count money (insert sound bite- Wah Wah Wahhhhh...)
The order came to 18.95. I had a 20, no singles. I had 2 fifties too but that wasn't going to do me any good. So I tell my son I need tip money for the delivery guy. He fishes out a dollar bill and 4 quarters. (hey it is better than nothing!) I hand the guy his money, eat my portion of the steak and cheese calzone (don't judge me! lol) and head back to the couch to continue my slow walk with Death.
Next day (yesterday) I was feeling quite a bit better, not great mind you I wouldn't be running any marathons
but there was definite improvement. I needed more juice and some other things so I headed off to the store. My bill was 20 some bucks. I went to pull out one of my 2 remaining fifty dollar bills....and GASP..Whaaaa???? Behold there was ONE 50 and one 20!! I had given the pizza guy a fifty instead of a 20. How
is that? Well for him it was...
So I repeat-Do not do anything that requires thought when you are ill. Just say no.
I did go to the pizza place to explain what happened. Not that I thought anything could be done for me but I wanted management to be aware. I wanted him to know what sort of drivers he had. It was a very pleasant conversation, he was very "understanding" while I was standing there anyway. We figured out what driver it was and he said he would talk to him. Sure he did. (rolling eyes..ouch that hurts...still sick lol)
Anyway NO ONE leaves a 32 dollar tip. NO ONE. It upsets me a little because I would have asked the person if they meant to leave me 30 dollars. I really would have. But human decency is apparently rare these days. Sucks too. I don't have that kind of money to toss away. Especially after I had not worked all week due to illness. Oh well. When you boil it down, it was MY own fault. No more counting for me when I am sick. Math and I have always been mortal enemies. Nice move Arithmetic, you dirty bastard. That was a solid win for you but I refuse to accept defeat. I live to fight another day! Victory over numbers shall one day be MINE!!!
