Not only, but also ...

Plus, PLUS, since I have been working at the medical centre for a few years now I am become the recipient of confidences of ladies being beaten by the children/husbands or suffering terminal diseases with nothing I can do to assist and it shits me.

Particularly the lady being beaten by her 28yr old drug addicted son. He beat her dogs to hurt her.

It is very sad.

The spirit is willing ...

I have a leaking shower tap.

At least, it started as a leaking skower tap. So, i called the real estate agent and i even said it was urgent becauae actually it was quite a bad leak. Then i called them again with my schedule for the week. Then i called them again with my schedule for the following week, and so on and so forth for a month.

So then i just turned the hot water system off and had cold showers for the summer, which was no issue cause it gets quite warm in the summer in North Queensland.

Then ... i had to give my cat an emergency bath which required the use of the cold water tap in the shower, which then didn't want to turn off as much as it wanted too previously, and in the meantime I tried to buy pipe wrenches and stuff to attempt a home grown fix, but everything was the wrong size and then I tried to tighten it just a little too much and I think I broke something called a spindle, BUT then I bought a multisize pipewrench thingy but it turns our that even with the application of a bottle of dutch courage, I am still too physically weak to undo the thingy and now I am inebriated and depressed because of what is actually a very basic inanimate object and how lame is it to be defeated by a tap!!!!!!


Fuck plumbing!
