Where was I again?

Hmm. Let's look at the evidence:

  • People running across the roof of my office for most of the morning? Check!
  • A water balloon fight that culminated in a hospitalisation, an arrest and lots of emergency-type-people in uniforms wandering around this afternoon? Check!
  • Tears, recriminations and at least one person ending up fully clothed in a river? Check!
  • Ending my working day in a bizarre hostage situation which involved being locked into an office and lightly threatened with a fire extinguisher? Check!

Ah. It must be Monday.

How was your day?

Blimey O Reilly, that's one fuck of a Monday. Mine has been utterly sedate, it being my day off, but even if it had been a working day, I doubt I could top that!

People walking past my window wearing stupid chavvy Burberry Hats with a ridiculous pattern. Check.

I had 5 emails. No phone calls. Had to go out to the optician at lunchtime because I had lost a screw. I didn't make any screwing jokes while there.
It was so quiet I felt compelled to talk to Mrs S when she came home.
Can I come to work with you tomorrow. I will bring my own weapons.

Hey cool workplace, no wonder you switched jobs - there was no chance of any such controversy at the last place huh?!
I bet you loved the whole "being lightly threatened with a fire extingusher" feeling...all that sarcasm and nowhere to vent it lest you be squirted in the face with yucky tasting foam!

Being as you asked, Baby J burned his hand on the Oven Grill on Monday (that's yesterday here now!)...we spent the rest of the day in the emergency room of a Well Known Children's Hospital in Perth. Which was heartbreaking/boring but I did get to meet a real life Plastic Surgeon. Check (!!).

I sat on my ever-expanding lardy arse waiting patiently for the working day to end so I could go home and drink wine with my girl.

WE lost the mains water to school Monday so I volunteered to sit on the phone Tuesday saying 150 variations of 'No Sir/Madam, the school is closed - please practice your parenting skills at home' or similar...

Hmm, I'm considering whether I would have preferred your day or mine which included getting an offer on my house. I'm really not sure.

BTW, I have also met a real life plastic surgeon who expertly sewed about 25 stitches in my face. You'd never know.

One woman with Alzheimer's dementia who's been on our ward for 3 weeks. We decide to send her back to the nursing home and while she's waiting for transport, she has a heart attack. She survived.

One woman with alcoholic liver disease who vomited so much blood that it literally covered her whole bed and most of the floor round it. )It was like the film 28 days later). She's now in a coma in the Intensive Care Unit but will probably die.

Are you listening Boom Town Rats?This is why I don't like Mondays...
