You knew it was coming sooner or later - its not possible for me to have a blog and not use it to rant about the idiots we encounter in everyday life. Maybe 'idiot' is too harsh a word - lets try something a bit more pc - how about 'neuronally challenged'?
Yesterdays 'neuronally challenged' individual works in Big W - does this surprise you? I took the twins to the shops to get supplies for E's upcoming birthday extravaganza, and while we were shopping A1 threw her glasses out of the pram. Now this is not unusual, but fortunately we haven't lost a pair yet (I'm sure it is only a matter of time though). I didn't realise we had lost them until I had packed everything in the car and was putting the girls in the car (its always the way isn't it?) so I had to put the twins back in the pram and retrace our steps. We got back to Big W and I asked if anyone had seen some baby glasses - this is where the aforementioned individual comes into the story. Her reply???
"Yes I found some on the floor so I threw them in the bin".
What the??? Do these look like something that should be thrown in the bin? Surely they have a policy of holding onto lost property to see if someone claims it?
Luckily they weren't damaged from their time in the bin and we have them back now. And thanks to this little opportunity to rant I feel much better!
You know there will be plenty more posts like this in the future don't you??? I just can't help myself and it is so therapeutic!
