Service

Exclusive Books Hyde Park left a message on my phone a couple of days ago informing me that a book I had ordered had arrived. I was surprised, given that I’d ordered this novel one year and two months ago.
Evidently, even at the time I did not have much faith in this organisation’s ability to get me the book I desired as I ordered it from Kalahari and it lies about half read on my bedside table. Glad they don’t supply medical oxygen or blood for operations.
Today I ventured out to collect my garage card, about two months after I’d been sent a text message to do so. Banks that open at 9am and close at 15.30 need to be killed and shot for their deliberate policy of causing maximum inconvenience.
After searching through piles of uncollected bank cards – obviously belonging to people who bloody work during banking hours – the attendant finally located mine in the “naughty, disobedient clients” pile and told me I was ‘lucky’ it had not been ‘destroyed’. To demonstrate my relief I coughed at her and walked away. Let’s see who’s lucky now, punk.

    Ok, I know it’s early days, but freeing yourself from the medical metaphors is an important step in your moving beyond ‘that place’. So do tell, did you tell them to take their book and shove it?

    Flu roulette… Ha ha, love that Benny!
    Hot Guy, I was in a weakened, dying (according to my accurate self-diagnosis) state so I didn’t call them back. I did glare at the book a bit, though…
