UNDERESTIMATION by a long shot
Definitely. I underestimated by how much the feckers were going to charge me to send a parcel to Belgium. I thought that £5.50 would cover it. And that included the packaging. But no. They wanted , wait for it, £25.45!!! This means that the buyer (them) is laughing his nuts off. And me (the seller) is crying his nuts off. The (being the Post Office) bloody feckers certainly know how to charge!!!
Ah well. It's all part of being a dealer in the wonderful world of EBAY. I can always make up my loss along the line by adding a wee bit here and a wee bit there in p/p costs to my buyers. Can't I? You know, the way the Americans do!! After all, I do have loads more gack to sell to the unsuspecting world of buyers out there.
Got a letter in the post this morning from my GP. He wants me to try out a new drug to replace an old drug. In other words he wants me to use a cheaper drug instead of the more expensive drug.
The thing about this drug is, instead of taking it in the morning I take it in the evening. The side effect of the drug is minimal. I trust my doctor. He keeps me alive. He has my best interest at heart.
What do I need to avoid when I take this drug. No, not my favorite drink (Vodka) but another favorite drink----my drink of the morning-----my liver up kicker up the backside drink of the day.....GRAPEFRUIT JUICE. I must avoid feckin' grapefruit juice. I need to speak to him about this. I also love to have grapefruit in the morning. Does that constitute juice as well?
We will soon see.
A friend of mine who lives a long long long way away from here (Toronto to be precise) mentioned to me in one of his recent mails to me that there is another friend of mine out there who reads this rubbish all the time. He has asked me to refer to him as Danny Boniducci. Apparently he will know that I am talking to him. Won't you John? Oooop's I mentioned a name. I don't mention names on this blog. You know. Just in case. Isn't that right John Mealy? (John is a member of the Partridge Family for those of you who might be interested)
I didn't mean to name drop there but my fingers got the better of me. It happens sometimes. You know. The middle finger, the two finger. All the fingers. Just have no control over them sometimes. What can I do. Hey John? (darn, again)
Of course there is also the perpetrator of the passage above. He is just known as 'HORRIBLE'. He is the real reason behind all of this. His nickname is Horrible because he is, by his own addmitance, just Horrible!!!!
Better go now. My fingers might get more out of control than I would want them to and it would mean naming more names. That would never do. Would it?
