My god. Day from Hell yesterday! Well, not hell really, just really trying from beginning to end. Well, ACTUALLY the day started ok, and ended with playing Halo with Genz, so that’s not true either. The part of the day between these two points, however, was not so shiney.
I needed a specific book from the library. The library was the one in Piershill, I double checked that the book was there and available, so I trecked all the way out there, 45mins ish, and started hunting for the book. It was in a stupid section, I mean, who would put a book on American military uniforms 1755 to the present in the section marked pastimes and leisure…? Anyway, I couldn’t find the book, nor could the Librarian, so she went to her computer, and found out that it hadn't been loaned out since 2002. She said that it must be stolen. I personally think it may NOT be stolen, just lost- perhaps there is just not a HUGE call for American military uniform history, seeing as all the main war uniforms are covered in other, better books.
I got back on the bus, and went back into town to go to the Central Library. I looked for AGES for the books I wanted- (by the way, did you know that Blackwork Embroidery is classed as Leisure: Sports...?) So, found my book, and went to check it out. A nasty male librarian then informed me my library card had expired. Now, I didn't even KNOW they expired!! Where I'm from, I've been registered for 14 years, and that has NEVER expired! So I was very confused- they hadn't even sent a letter saying it had expired! I asked to put the book away until the next day, when I could bring proof of address. He said that he couldn't and was rather rude! I asked another librarian when rude-man left, and she said that they could keep it on hold for me for a week! *sigh*
Then comes the depressing bit. I went into my bank to pay my Credit Card bill, and was told I had £6 credit left in my overdraft. *screams* My money from my loan company hasn't come in. It was supposed to be in on Janurary 5th, but the payment was blocked for an unknown reason. They said it would be sorted, and that it would be in the first week of Feb. It didn't. After MANY calls to the company, I was told to call back today, which I've just done. Still isn't sorted! They're very confused, I'm very confused! And I'm angry! And I WANT COMPENSATION!!!! ALSO MY MONEYYYYY!!!!
...And when I got in bed last night, by hot water exploaded and soaked my bed.
Just my EFFIN luck.
