    Every single one of these is relateable, completely. Especially the vending machine one, it’s like they have minds of their own and do things on purpose to make your angry. Then you kick it, slam your hand on the glass so the package of cookies dangling there on the verge of falling might actually fall and then…..nothing.

      I’ve had so many arguments with vending machines. Fortunately there’s now a place across the street from where I work where I can go and buy a bag of chips from a person. It’s so much safer than relying on a damn machine.

    You started off with real possible scenarios. I should have known it would get weird. Lol

      Yeah, that always seems to be the way things go with me: they start off normal and then get weird.

    Thanks Christopher! You made my day. It’s been a miserable week for me technically, but I’m beginning to see a very dim light at the end of the tunnel (and it’s not blinking!). I so enjoy your Blog and can remember with affection the small boy who collected spiders with such enthusiasm!
    Blessings and Love,
    Judy

    If I had a dollar for every urgent project that got cancelled RIGHT AFTER I’d finished it, I could retire and never do an urgent project again!

      I guess I’ve been lucky that it hasn’t happened to me that often but, yeah, I know exactly how frustrating that is. I think they should give us a bonus every time they cancel an urgent project.

    Yes. I’m so glad I’m not alone.

      I’m glad I can provide others the reassurance of shared experiences, and glad others can reassure me too.
