To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not on the obstacles.
-T. F. Hodge
I was having a pretty great day. A leisurely morning, run to the bank and grocery store,(actually drove, but you know what I mean) then get my oil changed at the dealer.
Here’s where the frustration begins. They said it would be about 40 minutes. I said ok, can the courtesy car take me over to Towne Creek just 3 blocks away? This way they could take their time, as they said I needed my free tire rotation too. So, 45 minutes later, still no courtesy car. Here we go again. I went out to complain, and they said it would be another 20 minutes. Heck I could have walked over in 10, but I had sandwiches, drinks, and a tray of cookies. So, they
said a tech could drive me over.
While I stand outside laden with my stuff, they say my car is ready. More time filling out paperwork. Ok, just bite your tongue and go.
The seniors were happy to see me, we ate and talked and painted. I left at 6 pm, came home, went for a nice long walk, and got out the fixin’s for my Friday night Black Russian. Now I can watch mindless tv and write my blog.
NO INTERNET, NO TV. Uverse was out! Crap! I called, did all the trouble shooting garbage, still nothing. Tech coming somewhere between 4-8 tomorrow.
So, here I sit with my tiny iPhone, touching all the wrong keys, and writing this. The good news… I’ve got my Black Russian and some cookies.
