Ok, the world is definatly going mad!
They think they’ve found Jesus Christ, They’ve found some ice age looking creatures in the antarctic and the annoying automated telephone operator gets even more annoying.
I watched BBC News the other day and apperently they recon they’ve found Jesus Christ in a box or a box where he was in or something. Looks in pretty good condition to be that old. Also on the News that day was some strange looking creatures in the antarctic they’d found or havn’t seen for a while. It looks well weird! they showed this crocodile looking thing, a crab that dosent have a body (All its organs are in its legs) and loads of other freezing water beasties i don’t think i’d like to meet.
I didn’t get paid today as i should, instead i’l be getting paid tomorrow after i called up the job centre (Still havn’t found a suitable job yet!!! FOR GODS SAKE!) I got up at 6:30 am, first time i’d gotton up that early since leaving Swindon FM. I had to meet my brother at 7:30 at the train station (wake at 6:30 and walk to town at 7) but saw him at tescos when i was on my way to meet him. We still had to go to the station so i walked the rest of the way and met him at the station, had to see how much it costs for a train 2 Bradford.
Anyway when Mat left i went to the bank again… no pay so called Caroline up to meet her in town. Well anyway the first thing that really pissed me off today is that when you go to places like the job centre you learn you have to speek to someone on the phone instead of speeking to someone who will easilly push the right buttons and sort it.
Well the phones were all jammed for 20 minutes and had to keep calling for ages untill i got through and it only took 30 seconds to speak to the woman, when 1. I easilly could of got my money if the jobcentre if they did their job peoperly and 2. if i spoke to someone i would not be so pissed off that i had to keep calling!
Afterwards Caroline went to the bank. If you line up to see a cashier they tell you to put NOTES or a cheque in the machine… You’ve just waited to line up to put your money in through a cashier and they tell you to use the machine where there is a line where the old man cant figure out how to use the machine. What if you have to put £28.64 in change into the bank? (It’s possible, you might of been saving your money in a biggy bank and want to move it to a propper bank or you might be an old lady) You cant put all that in the machine cos it only takes notes.
Then it’s time to go home on the bus… Im sure that not all bus drivers of swindon are like this but most of the busses are… I go on the bus. I got some change for it on purpose (Got a paper) but 50p was stick in my keys in my pocket so i’m trying to get it and the bus drivers looking at me like “You gonna pay me then??”. ITS NOT MY FAULT THAT YOU WORK FOR A BUNCH OF PENNY PINCHING BASTERS WHO WON’T GIVE YOU CHANGE TO RIDE THE BUS!” I eventually got my 50p after pulling out a pound and about 10p in change (He didn’t even have to wait more than 20 seconds) i got on and sat down, with him shaking his head at me. WELL EXCUSE ME, BUT YOU WANT THE RIGHT CHANGE!
The busses over here have these stupid machines so you have to give the correct change and if you don’t you don’t get change. It costs 90p to get to/Back from town, or £1.70 Return (I’l only get on the bus if it rains or is too cold usually). If you get a return and you put £2 in the machine you don’t get 30p back. same if you put £1 in for a 90p trip. Most people wouldn’t quibble about a mere 10p/20p/30p, but when you think about it that money could go else where. Putting 10p in a charity box helps a charity, Saving that 10p 9 times i catch the bus gets me home again, and if every1 on the bus/going on the bus put 10p more in the bus company are making 10p for every one who goes on the bus (And how many people are bothered about a mere 10p? NOT A LOT! How many people ride the bus each day? A LOT) and as far as Day riders, they are charging 20p more than the other bus company operating in swindon which is £2.70 so the people putting £3 in the machine are leaving a mere 30p (You could het 3 10 penny sweets with that or even get a Swindon Advertiser for an extra 5 p). So how much are Thamesdown Busses making from people who leave there change?
I had a really good idea for a feature for a radio show today, but i int saying just incase it gets nicked.
