Horrible

After such a wonderful day on Tuesday, I would have hoped that the good fortune would continue till the end of the week. Well, I'm not that lucky, never have been. I guess I'd used up all my good luck for the week in one day.

Wednesday morning started in the usual way, with me hoping on the tube. But at Mile End, someone on my train pulled the passenger emergency alarm, and we all had to wait while the driver came out, and cleared the alarm. While he was doing this, there was 'passenger action' some stations in front, and we had to wait on the platform for another 10 minutes or so. I felt a little sorry for the people in the train behind us, they were stuck in the tunnel all this time !! I saw the train when I left the carriage after some mysterious person farted inside. (There should be a law against farting in crowded public spaces)

Then to work. The desktop faxing system was still not working, even though the BT engineer had come and gone the day before when I wasn't in. Then I took part in a game where BT and the supplier of the system traded blame for who's equipment was to blame. And while all this was going on, the photocopying machine/scanner/network printer broke down for a bit. Phone never stopped ringing. Spyware on a manager's laptop. My stash of rice which I take to work everyday went bad.....I could go on and on, but I don't want to moan.

Fax mysteriously started working on Friday after everything I'd tried decided not to fix it. Things seemed to slow down a bit. I've still got a bit of work to do though, and I'm even in the office right now.

Take Care people......
