Dear whoever cares

I wasn't quite sure who to address this letter to. So, if you're reading it...it means you give a damn...if you're reading it and you really don't care...thanks for reading it anyway;)

I've had a pretty hectic week. So much so that this morning i considered not being my normal little ray of sunshine...then again, the thought of it freaked me out a little...so here I am once again, all smiles and laughing at the horrid week I've had..cause everything about it was stupid.

Monday started out a little bit rough. Big bossman and little bossman left for our clients in Namibia early on Monday morning, so I was left running the company for the next 3 days...hurray hurray! Except for one little glitch. I wasn't actually at the office on Monday. Do you guys have any idea how hard it is to control unloyal slaves when you can't actually see them? So on Tuesday i decided to abandon the thought of going to the clients and opted to rather go to the office. Which turned out to be a big mistake.

I was stuck in traffic for 3 hours trying to get to the office...*sigh*. Upon my arrival at the office, i realised that the slaves were doing the exact opposite from what they were supposed to be doing. I threw a neat rubylike tantrum.....which resulted in the desired reaction from the slave, and my insides were in harmony again. That is....they were until i spent another 3 hours stuck in traffic trying to go home....the joys of living in joburg i tell you;)

The big catastrophe struck on Wednesday morning. My phone was dead. I tried to charge it - nothing. I tried switching it on - nada! I tried taking it apart, putting it back together and then switching it on - still niks! noooooooooo!! I was at work without a phone. That meant that i would have to spend the whole day phoneless....oh boy! Why is this a catastrophe you might wonder....well, let me put it this way....1. The boss tried to phone me from Namibia, no joy! and freaked out because for some reason he couldn't get through to the office either....he thought we had been burgled and killed or something. 2. Jack tried to contact me on several occasions during the day, and managed to get himself into a nice little tizz because he couldn't reach me. 3. I was freaking out cause i felt totally isolated from the world. Yes yes, i know i have e-mail and msn and blogger and stuff....but it's just not the same OK? Not having a phone is a gigantic crisis in my life:(

I've managed to get my old phone to work, but I'm thoroughly disgusted to think that my beautiful, 3 month old phone is lying in my handbag absolutely useless! I guess i should be grateful that for now at least i have an old phone I can use. And at least i have most of my telephone numbers saved on my PC...so all is not lost;)

Thursday was relatively uneventful...thank goodness. The only thing that managed to disturb my tranquil world was the fact that the phone people won't listen to me. I'm 99.99% certain that the problem is the battery...but they won't even test that without sending away for 3 weeks...argh!!!!! Do they not understand my predicament??

This morning however was the cherry on top. I didn't sleep all that well, as i was a bit worried about a friend of mine, and this dude that's been haunting my dreams for the last week has once again showed up smiling on my dreamland doorstep. Very odd....but I'll write him a letter to discuss the matter with him at a later stage. I got up at quarter to 6(a bit later than usual), had a shower and prepared to blow dry my hair. My blow dryer was ominously quiet. Crap!

I finally threw it to the ground where it magically started blowing hot air again...odd. So i dry my hair, plug in my "oh so fancy American"straightener, check that the little light came on and waited the required 20seconds before trying to straighten my hair. And then.............the straightener was ice cold. So it's on but it ain't heating up. Double crap!

After throwing a little tantrum, and making peace with the fact that I'll be late, i managed to scratch out my very first, really old, really small straightener. Thank goodness it still works.......but it takes ages to heat up, and it takes really really long to straighten my long hair with it as it is so small. I waltzed into the office at 9...half an hour late...dressed to kill and wearing a near hysterical smile. At least my hair looks as pretty as my outfit...despite the drama i had this morning!

so yes, i had a not so nice week. I initially thought it was horrid, and then realised that I've had much worse. This was nothing. So......to the dufus responsible for my week........bring it on bitch! I'm a strong baby...i can take it;)

Regards

Ruby

P.S. Yes yes yes....i know i said I'm back and all...but things have been a bit hectic OK? I'm trying my best...i promise! oh, and yes, I realise that unloyal is not a word...but i like it....so i'm using it.

Did you use the same wall socket for the hair dryer, charger, etc?

It might be that your phone and charger is fine. Just try charging it from another socket.

Just a thought.

PS. Of course we care....

Ruby said...

thanx gluggy...but i'm one ahead:) charger and hair dryer not from same socket. And we tried charging the phone with another charger, just to see if my charger wasn't the problem......it wasn't.

Thanx for caring;)

KaB said...

Sweetie...that's so much effort to get dressed for work!

I couldn't be bothered about my hair in the morning...it's washed once a day & tied up!

Am impressed!

Who is the dude you're trying to impress at the office cos no woman does that amount of hair work that early?!?

Haiwenna...

Ruby said...

he he....sorry KaB - but there aint no guy worth impressing at work. I work with clients everyday, so it's important to look good;) I don't blow everyday...only bout every 2nd day...but i like looking all pretty and professional at work. Stilleto's and power suits and sometimes miniature dresses depending on the client ;)

Ruby said...

oh crap that sounds shady........what i meant to say is I only blow dry my hair every second day. The days in between i pin it up nicely....now go fetch your mind from the gutter!

angel said...

Tamara said...

Was also going to ask if you're plugged all your problem electric things into the same socket.

So, sucks about the sharks, hey?

sweets said...

Globus said...

we forgive you for being half-back, (doesn't that make you sound extremely american football?) as it makes us feel less guilty for being slack too :-)

you people get 2 bank holidays in a week - when it's not christmas - you have nothing to whinge about ;-)

Ruby said...
