Bloody Broadband, Bloody Shifts, Bloody Insensitive Bastards

My Internet connection's been really bad all weekend.

I don't know if anyone else is experiencing problems with their Streamyx, but then again, when have you NEVER had problems with that stupid broadband provider, huh? Their customer service is severely lacking; in fact, all of their services are questionable. It's just sad that we have too little broadband providers fighting for the top spot. I mean, if our broadband providers are as competitive as our mobile telcos, why, we consumers would have a ball!



It's been a stay-at-home weekend for me, which is great, because I really needed the rest from all the early mornings I had during the week. Guess what, I'll be on afternoon shift next week; my working hours will be from 2.30pm to 10.30pm. Can you see me jumping for joy here? Woo. Bloody. Hoo.

Sorry folks. I'm currently just too bloody uptight to be nice.

PS: Oh, and to those who bitched about the Nurin case, blaming the parents for neglecting their child in the first place? If you don't have children, SHUT UP. Even if you do, imagine losing them. How's that for a laugh, huh? Leave the parents be. They've already lost their flesh and blood. Geez.

It's really not surprising how some insensitive some people can be, you know. They talk and talk about the LAW, but we as citizens of the country, have never actually seen the LAW in black and white.

So whatever we do today, somebody could just slap us and tell us that we have broken the LAW, and that they had to take action.

Poor baby, I'm sorry bout your stupid shifts. I know it's so bloody hard to do anything when your timetable is completely different from anyone else's.

Just sleep when you can and try to relax as much as you can. And cuss a lot.

My freaking scheduler put me on 5pm-3am on Thursday afternoon/Friday morning and THEN 7AM on Saturday. I HATE her. I am still jet lagged from that shift.

I cussed the hell out of her and it's very therapeutic.

One tip to help you sleep. Go for a 30 min run on the treadmill 1 hr before bedtime. I guarantee that you'll be out like a light.
