Cock-up

This post is really a stop-gap between piss-takes, specifically asked for by Rachel who is fed up with people talking about her oral sex-life every time they come here for an update.  I may have unwittingly kept the attention on it with this entry though, and for that I am very sorry (I lie). Abnormal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

I have been doing my best to entertain T2, as well as struggling to keep up with work events, which all seem to have fallen on the same week, despite having waited about 2 months for one particularly expensive and important item to be made for me.

I picked it up the day before yesterday and measured it yesterday, only to find it is the wrong size and unusable. I made a surprise visit to the maker, so he could not blame it on me by destroying the drawing I made for it, but when I checked I saw the incorrect dimensions my own handwriting, and I had to bite the bullet.

Back into the overdraft...

  1. I am pleased we have moved on I have been unable to keep still on my chair all week.

    You will have to juggle your final invoice to cover your costly error. After all, your clients are extremely wealthy are they not and may not even notice.

  3. You probably need a holiday, Tom. Somewhere warm and sunny with no rulers, tape measures, pens or paper.

  4. Oh dear….I presume you checked the figures before giving him a rollicking ? That would have been too embarrassing

  5. Hope you didn't break any teeth while biting that bullet.

    1. Not many left to break, and T2 is a dentist.

  6. If you want a break from feeling sorry for yourself, Google Jian Ghomeshi and see the trench Canada's most loved radio host has just dug for himself.

    1. I don't feel sorry for myself, and if I did, I wouldn't want a break from it.
