Life's Hard Sometimes

Alright, I'll let you know how my day went.  I was miserable the moment I woke up.  Usually I like to sleep in, but today I had to leave the house way early, so I had to be up at 11:00.  Yep, I had to be out of bed by 11:00 in the freakin' morning.  I had a doctor's appointment today, and my stupid doctor insisted on scheduling it for 1:00 PM.  He said it had to be that early because of some bull excuse.  "I have to to fit someone for a cast after he gets out of ER," he told me.  What?  He wasn't going to be conscious, couldn't wait a few hours?  All I know is that because of the doc's poor time management, I lost two hours of sleep.

I know what you're thinking, "Yeah, that was bad, but at least it was over."  You'd be right, but it didn't end there.  The day just kept piling it on.

After the check-up (Which took like half an hour.  That doctor didn't care about my time at all) I decided I should get something to eat.  I was on my way to the steakhouse to get some lunch, when the "Check Engine" light in my Mustang lit up.  A few seconds later I saw smoke coming from the engine.  I pulled over in a driveway to check it, and what I saw, after I got the stupid hood to open, was that my engine coolant was low.  I walked up the driveway to the house, rang the bell, and asked if they had any coolant.  They said they did not, but they did let me have some water.  I mean, I'm sure they were lying, but I didn't have time to argue.  I had to get to the steakhouse before any of those greedy veterans got there for the early-bird discount.

I put the water in, and the engine light turned back off.  I still need to have a talk with my parents about this.  If they're going to buy a car for me, they need to remember to make sure I have all the stuff I need for it.  What the heck, do they think I can just make it all magically appear?

Well, as you probably expected, I made it to the steakhouse late, and of course there was huge group of retirees walking into the building as I pulled in.  Now I was going to have ro deal with having a waitress who would be constantly distracted by the demands for Diet Coke refills, clean silverware and wet naps.

It must have been at least five minutes before the waitress came to take order.  Unbelievable.  She may have all those old geezers to deal with, but that's no excuse.  And she apparently was the only waitress working there at the time, so service was going to be even slower.  Well, I guess that wasn't so bad.  With all the people she had to wait on, I was able to give a smaller tip.  Every bit of money saved helps, especially if want to afford that Alienware setup I need.

I guess it close to 4:00 before I was done with my lunch.  It was pretty decent, but my steak was much less red than I requested.  I'm telling you, they put up quite a fight before they agreed to waive my bill.  It was kind of ignorant.  I eat there like three times a week.  You would think they would show some gratitude for the business.

Here's where the day got really, really bad.  I had seen the doctor, fixed my car, and finally been able to eat.  Now, I all had left to do was go home, relax and play a little Grand Theft Auto on my X Box.  I was definitely ready for some "me time."

I had returned home, ready to play.  I guess I made too much noise when I got in, because my grandma was screaming something about trying to take a nap, but I'm not sure.  She's always screaming about something.  You'd think a lady who survived lung cancer would be a bit more cheerful and grateful.

Whatever.  Like I was saying earlier, I was ready to play some GTA.  I hadn't been on the online game in a while, and I thought I'd try out some of the hacks I downloaded.  I booted up my X Box, turned on my TV, and started the online game.  That's when it happened.  The game tried to connect to the web, but failed.  I tried again, and once again an error message came up.  I yelled for my mom, asking what was up with the internet, and do you know what she said?  Our internet had been down all day.  Un-freaking-believable.

You know I wasn't going to take that, not after all I had been through.  I told my mom to call or cable company and demand to know why our internet wasn't working.  She said she did.  It was something to do with the router.  They weren't going to be able to do anything about it till the next day.

I was furious.  How could they not be able to deal with it today?  It was only 6:00.  Don't they hate emergency services?  What could possibly keep stop them from coming out now?

I tried everything I could think to do.  I attempted to fix the router myself, to no avail.  I called all my friends to see if I could play at their homes.  They were all at work.  I was stuck with no internet, for what was going to be more than twelve hours.  How does it feel to be listening to a superhuman?  Because that is what I must be to have handled that.  Let me tell you, that night I had never been so happy that I had downloaded so many TV shows and movies from file sharing website.

Thanks for listening to my venting.  I feel so much better.  It's good to get all your problems out, ya know?  It's important to help each other out.  Oh, you want to talk also?  Sorry, I can't right now. I gotta go.
