Little is understood. It's too complicated for my online translator.
But the bad Russian language courses? We have cookies and pies. And a steam samovar. For example.

What happened is i got a code to unlock a course to learn the Manx language, but when i used the code, it unlocked the wrong course, so i had a russian course instead of the manx i was supposed to get.
I don't dislike russian, but at the moment i try to learn manx.

No more drains, PLEASE.... Sad



Guess what....  Roll Eyes

Yet another clogged drain and overflowing toilet. Seriously, have people suddenly forgotten how to wipe their own arse or what?!  Huh

Have I offended someones God, a Witch, a Gypsy, or even a slightly questionable old lady??  What the hell is with all the ( LITERAL ) shit I'm having to deal with at the moment?  Undecided

To make matters even better, "joy of joys" I also run out of disposable gloves, so had to handle and disassemble the "freshly coated" drain rods with bare hands. Well, at least I won't develop an urge to bite my nails in a hurry....  Lips sealed

I've cleaned restrooms in the retail store I worked at years ago, and I have been to more than one rest stop in each of the lower 48 USA states, and I would say yes. Yes they have.

I could tell you stories...

I always find it interesting when a restaurant either doesn't maintain good and clean toilets, or when the toilets are more luxurious than the restaurant. One particular restaurant I went to about 20 years ago springs to mind. I think they spent more on the decorating for the toilets than the decorating for the restaurant.

This is clearly a first-world problem, but I play Pokémon Go (it lets me indulge my compulsion to collect things without clogging up my closets Tongue ) and one of the tasks in the current Special Research quest is to "make three new friends." I don't actually know three people, let alone three Pokémon Go players.

Those folks can be quite nice.
Opposite our fire station there is a graveyard.
Every now and then groups gather there to find a ghost/spook/whatever pokemon.
I yelled across the road that the ENTON is in the back of our station.
Everyone laughed. We had a nice chat.

I don't speak a word of Manx, BUT I have heard it spoken!  In 1978 & 1979 we were on the Isle of Man & in '78 we attended the Tynwald Ceremony on July 5th.  We didn't get to stay for it in '79, which was the Millenium celebration.  Wish I had been able to stay for that one.  The reading of new laws at the ceremony is in Manx, of course.

My bank charged me 1,27 eur for being in the red. That puts my account balance at -4,75 eur. Which basically I'm broke as heck. What kind of bovine excrement is this ? I have a job interview to go to on Friday and I literally have less than zero money. If, and that's a big IF, I get the job I'm interviewing for on Friday, that means my first paycheck would be either in late october or early november. How the hell I'm supposed to exist until then is beyond me.

Is that all? Whenever I go over the credit limit with my bank I get dinged with an overdraft charge of $40.00. That's right,FORTY DOLLARS Canadian!! And I've been informed that the charge is due to be increased. In my more cynical moments I get a distinct feeling that most banking is just a species of legalised theft.

But, seriously, I'm sorry to hear about your financial situation. I hope it all gets sorted out for you. I can empathise; been there, done that, more than once . . . .

In Germany you get 0.something per cent on your savings account.
But if you are in the red on your normal account they charge more than 10 per cent.
And they count the days.

today I got dropped off to work a section of turf outside for 7 hours, as per usual for this kind of gig, and had a digestive illness flair. found a pizza place luckily. Finished my shift and have had two flairs tonight since then.

I also hit a stumbling block during my shift. a block in a walk way, over which I stumbled... and bent a big toenail back in the middle so that it ripped away from the nailbed for half the length of it and soaked the front of my sock with blood. But I walked the 4 miles of turf for the rest of the day fine enough. I think theres a mini-gah in the fact that the discomfort of that was rather minor in comparisons to so much of my experiences of illness and pain that it didn't even slow me down. How messed up is my life that having half a toenail ripped out while having painful food poisoning symptoms, doesn't even seem worth paying attention to while walking 4+ miles?
