    Smile Birthdays and stuff

    I have been somewhat recalcitrant in doing birthday wishes since the 15th of December, when we were affirmatively shopped whilst having our year end do!
    Suffice to say that having various guns pointed at one is not something I wish to repeat too often, this is the third time, and it doesn't get any more pleasant.
    As per usual they took all our electronics, money, both work and personal, so I was sans cell phone, my new tablet, my new laptop the work computer etc.etc.
    Luckily a friend has now given me a "new" laptop, so I can and will continue doing birthday wishes!
    So to everybody, I hope WE ALL have a great year!

    Eish, sorry to hear you had another bad experience.

    But happy to see you still OK, and have you back on board and back to doing what you do.

    Shared sentiments of Ashley & Alex, Mark. Glad you're always able to Swallow the B.S., rise above the albatross on your shoulder & come back fighting, with Spirit, & not Dgener8 into a quivering jellyfish.
    May the best of 2017 be the worst of 2018 for you and the family.

    Smile Mia

    Going to be MIA for about two to three weeks, so there will unfortunately be no bifday wishes! i apologise for this in advance, but I am going in to hospital for fairly major surgery to replace 3, maybe 4 of the vertabrae in my neck that have calcified and are now trapping my spinal chord.
    So please bear with me, I should be able to be back on track round the 27th!

    Angry P$#@@*% off!

    Get to hospital this morning at 06.00 as instructed, go to admissions, Hi I'm here to book in for my op. So sorry sir, the medical aid hasn't sent through the authorization, so no bed, theatre etc has been booked!
    Just got off the phone with medical aid, oh we are still waiting for a questionnaire from your GP to be returned. Really, when did you send it to her? Oh yesterday afternoon at 3PM!
    OK so now when will this now be finalised? Oh in a day or so, we'll let you know??????????????????
    They have had since last Tuesday to do this!
    Never in my life have I seen such p*&^poor service from a so called "service provider"!
    So back at work, looking like a twat, having told everyone I will be away till 26/02!

    Don't beat yourself up about having expressed your absence from the workplace based on predicted facts. Everyone has experienced the 'TIA' syndrome at some stage or other.
    When you find a service provider who does just that, be sure to send them birthday and Christmas cards. It shouldn't cost much.

    "Give a guy a break" just doesn't seem to be happening to you right now. Good luck, and heal up quickly.

    Or is it too early to assume your op is still on...
    Ride so you can ride again tomorrow.
