Sometimes when you’re waiting for a bus you find that you have been waiting for a long time. Not a single bus passes by. Lots of buses pass by in the opposite direction though, but none in the direction you’re going. You get frustrated and pissed, thinking it’s a goddamned conspiracy. Then three buses arrive all at the same time, which is great, yeah? But none of them are going in the places you need to go. Times like that I just really just have to laugh it off because it’s just so hysterically ridiculous.
Right now, today, at this very minute, I feel like I want to laugh hysterically. I just suddenly noticed that a lot of the stuff in the house don’t work so well. Practically all the stuff I have here isn’t 100% working order. Well for one, this computer. It’s on the verge of crashing. I hope it doesn’t, I hope I’m able to fix it because really, it’s literally become my lifeline, my source of livelihood. If this goes, well… Ilyn’s monitor on her computer isn’t working so well either. It takes forever and a few bumps to turn the damned thing on.
TV – The thing is almost 20 years old. And it’s still working! Sony makes the best damned TVs eh? I really can’t blame it if it’s not working perfectly OK, but just to point it out… when you open it, the volume defaults to full. So if you’re not prepared with the mute button on the remote, your eardrums are going to hell. That’s if the remote is working of course. Sometimes doesn’t even with new batteries.
CD Player – It skips. Even after I clean it. And no, I play no pirated stuff in it.
DVD Player – It skips. In fairness, I’ve had this thing for 8 years now. And it works great if you don’t play with the controls too much. But yeah, it skips a lot. Started happening only a few months ago.
Electric Fans – One doesn’t want to turn on unless it’s on maximum. The other one has a broken neck.
Digicam – The electronic controls go haywire once in a while.
Stove – Only one of two burners are working.
Not all of the lights in the house work. Boney has a busted tooth. Milky has a busted leg. Eugene is well… dead. And did I mention my phone recently got disconnected? I’ve had it put back right away or else I’m screwed. And yeah, I was supposed to go to Manila today, but right now I literally can’t. Sorry to the Agimat guys, but my situation really can’t be helped. I hope to help you guys at a later date.
Yes, I’m laughing hysterically, but please don’t think I’ve lost my mind. I’m just venting, and now it’s back to work.
