Over the past few years several uncalled for situations have happened in our local news agency. foot in mouth statements like" we don't get many sales for sixty first wedding anniversary cards and do you know how much you are spending on Lotto have been among other little quips suggesting being old I must be bloody stupid.
Today it was 8-30 AM when I reluctantly removed my self from my warm bed to dash to the freezing bathroom, It is winter here in sunny Budgewoi on the Central Pacific Coast of NSW OZ.
After Brekky and five Min's on my PC I prepared Dinner for today, read today's Sydney Daily Telegraph (delivered daily to my door) then later fed the wild birds and watered the garden.
Being told my wife Rosemary was thinking of taking a walk to the local shops, I presented her with our Lotto Winning coupons with a note which read '$90-75 TO COLLECT. THEN PUT SAME NUMBERS BACK ON FOR MON WED and SAT.Thank you..
Shortly after I received a telephone call from the news agency when a female voice stated there is no money in the folder. I was cheesed off and stated The obvious, that the note indicates we have won and there is no need for money to renew the punt for next week using the same numbers, But then I put my foot in it by saying "Even a rocking horse would understand that" , then the phone went dead her end...Shortly after my wife returned home to inform me that the girl in the News agency was in tears when she left with the matter resolved.
Now I must ask myself should I apologise and bang my head on the wall as punishment or should I shop elsewhere or simply let it all go away.
OK Then; right or wrong I'll say "SORRY, And that will I hope Finish this silly Saga.
Vest back Soon.
