Sanity testing Saturday morning….got to get better !

……..Must have got up on the wrong side of bed this morning!…actually bed is against the wall so there’s only one side I can get up to……

……cursing having received the McDelivery Breaksfast Pamphlet with my morning papers…decided to try it….the Mc Mug was Free as was the Hash Potato…but what I paid for was terrible…Veg McMuffin !….even a cur would not eat this cud!….also was annoyed that they called twice to ask for directions to where I live !..a ploy used when they are running late for delivery !

……Refrigerator hired a few days back for a month,conked out yet again…the technician had come yesterday and said he had repaired it…..wasted ,for the second time, the chocolates made  and that were waiting to be wrapped for a Diwali Order for Nagschocs,our brand….the rental guy profusely aplogised and said he will replace it right away….full rent advance has been paid to him

…..an old office hand can’t stand the competition from the relatively new recruit and has threatened to resign…ironically he had recommended this guy too….wondering should I let him go……amicably…..

…..and now my trusted Printer Guy for over twenty years called…..messed up the printing on the Diwali Cards by printing the old address !….he was really feeling low about this…….told him mistakes do happen….he should have arranged for the printing proof like he was told to do…instead he fell back on complacency…..now am arranging for a new set of cards…..one should not mess up good relationships that have stood the test of time for such mess ups that can be resolved

……going back to my earlier Opticians….these Opticians are minting Money !….tried out one which runs a Chain all over Mumbai and  recommended strongly my by Wife and Son…..Rs 11000 for the top end Progressive Lens that’s equivalent to High Definition viewing !….extra for ‘anti this and that’ !….Rs 3200 for a rimless frame I liked !…..that’s Rs 15000 + for a new pair of Spectacles !…..Good Heavens !…..I could enjoy Heaven in  a 3N/4D all expenses ,including Airfare, trip to Bangkok and back for less !

…..25 years ago,I was being paid the princely sum of Rs 150 every month for doing my Articles with India’s leading firm of Chartered Accountants….I proudly stopped taking Pocket Money from my parents…..and not only survived the month but had some left over too at the end of it !……my son tells me “Dad, which world are you living in !” 

……this Saturday has got to get better !……maybe India’s top Rock Band, ‘Indian Ocean’ playing at the Club this evening will rev me up !….it’s free for members…. and, as I stated earlier on this blog that what’s free is really good !…..does not generally hold for stock advice though ! 

Cheers !…have a better weekend than I’m having so far !
