Today is pear shaped

[ #32883 ]

Today everything seems to be trying to go wrong:

  1. I bought pizza at Sainsbury's on special offer, only the till didn't think that it was. So after queuing at customer service, they confirmed that the till was right. "There's a sign up that says otherwise" I said, so we went down to the pizza freezers, and lo, there was. Said sign should have been removed some time ago, and so was promptly removed and torn up as we walked back to the customer service desk, where they refunded the difference to honour the offer price. So I got the deal, but it took time.
  2. Then as I came out of Sainsbury's, I spotted a bus, jogged to it to find that it was a 261, and got on. Rah! Only it broken down 4 stops later. "It's a nice day," I thought, so walked back the rest of the way, because I know where the quiet footpaths run.*
  3. And when I got home - I didn't have my keys. Turned out that I'd left them at my parents. Fortunately my dad offered to walk them over. Rocket wins another bonus walk!
  4. And once I was in and started cleaning, the Dyson attacked the bag containing the lump(s) of hateful sandstone pulling it to the floor, causing one lump to split and fine sand to escape onto the floor.

I'm going to retreat and have a bath.

* I like London. Or at least the parts that have footpaths that lead to private green places, and let you avoid the hurly burly.
