Granny and the Thursday feeling.

Hello All.

Where did Thursday go?
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I looked at the time.
Thirty minutes and I am out of here.

It has been a hectic day.
I had an internal audit this morning.
That took two hours.
It went well.
The auditor had one observation.
A lightbulb that was out in the flammable store.
I think he HAD to find something.
To prove he was doing his job.

This afternoon I had to leave my work to toss out old files in the basement.
I have probably tossed essential paperwork.
I am really not too worried.
If anyone wants something going back five years they should have done it five years ago.
However, my back now feels broken.
OK…NOT broken…but painful.
I will walk out the kinks after work.
The weather is lovely today.
The lull before the huge coldfront expected over the weekend.

Our financial manager was extremely rude to me over the phone yesterday.
It came out of the blue.
He was in the wrong about something and reacted badly.
I am learning restraint in my old age.
A couple of years ago I would have flown upstairs and torn a strip off him.
Instead I muttered under my breath.
No I lie.
I muttered very loudly.
He was wife had their first baby ten days ago.
He might be suffering from lack of sleep.
He might just be an asshole.
I suspect the latter.

And now I have a report to do before I go home.
Catch you all on the home PC.


  1. He’s a sleep-deprive asshole, they’re the worst kinds. Drive home safe. xxx

    • You hit the nail on the head Cindy.
      Have a great evening.

  2. Have a good evening, Gran. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Adee…it was a brilliant evening.

  3. I love your running commentaries. πŸ˜€

    Once a “sleep deprived asshole” (giving him the benefit of the doubt) called me on the carpet for something that had nothing to do with me.

    Instead of interrupting, I let him go on and on and on until he ran out of breath. I just smiled benignly at his ranting and raving until the steam cooled a bit.

    Then I pointed him in the right direction.

    ‘Twas FUN!

    • Heeh NR…that would have been great but this was on the phone…not nearly as satisfying.

  4. I wouldn’t know how much an asshole anyone thinks me to be but I DO know that without sleep… everything is at own risk πŸ˜‰ Always grateful for those who – like you – have learnt some restraint πŸ˜€ It helps while I’m still learning πŸ˜€

    • Hehehe Liane…I,too, am horrible when I am sleep deprived.

  5. ahhhhhhh ! good olde- “restraint” !!! I think we can each vouch for these moments ! πŸ™‚

    • And how Penny…especially in my job!

  6. I think I have the grumbling under my breath down pat.Oh,wise woman, please please, TEACH me this restraint you speak of…for I apparently surrounded by “sleep deprived people”.

    • It comes with age Morgue…I feel much better when I just look at someone and think “what an arsehole”

  7. Good for you for practicing restraint — that’s not simply age, that’s wisdom! Loved the previous day’s pics of the baboons — they are such fascinating creatures. Someday, I’ll come to S. Africa. Just curious — are you near Botswana?

    • Morning Klrs..No we are a long way from Botswana…I have never been there.If you look on the map we are right at the bottom where the Atlantic meets the Indian ocean.
      One of the most beautiful parts of South Africa.

      • thanks — I will google map it — I asked because I read the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series — they are such lovely, simple reads, and the people he portrays sound extremely wonderful, gentle and down to earth — I do realize they’re fiction, but as they say there is usually more truth to fiction than not — anyway, have a terrific weekend

      • Hi Klrs…you have mentioned these books before…who writes them again?

  8. I smell compassion under those ruffled feathers, Granny. Has a fabulous aroma.

    • I don’t know about that Souldipper…just let the steam out a bit more quietly now!

  9. He might just be an asshole.
    I suspect the latter.

    Hahahahahahahahahaha…I love you so much πŸ™‚

  10. I canNOT tell you how much I love your posts! They always make me laugh and are written in such an easy way to read. Love when they hit my inbox. I am in agreement with the majority. He’s a butt. ; ) Love, Me

    • Hello there …too much….why can’t I find where to comment on your post???????

  11. I suspect the latter as well! Must have been something in the air yesterday – my daughter’s co-worker was a real jerk because she pointed out a major mistake he made. Today he’s apologizing profusely every two seconds for his behavior. Shocking, especially since he’s a man…. πŸ˜‰

    • Hi RD…yes this was a man too. I think that was the most annoying. Lack of respect for his elder.

  12. Thats funny the older I get the less restraint I seem to show. But good for you.

    • Hi Linda…sometimes it depends…on how much sleep I have had. πŸ™‚

  13. One can in fact be an asshole in need of sleep. I’ve done it.
