How are you all? How have your days been? What’s for dinner/tea?
I’m still on the train. Played a game of Scrabble where my first two words were fap and snogger and their first was gimp. Could have played ‘oral’ for my next move but it wouldn’t have got me enough points. (Obviously doing it wrong etc etc)
This is the crux. This one was about a lack of refund for a stolen item, so it is some small comfort that it isn’t purely shot at me, but at the situation, and me. Not great I know, but that low level abuse of retail/hospitality/service workers happens so often you become used to it. Wrong, but hey, at least she didn’t get her refund.
Oh, apparently, by not giving her a refund, I’m discriminating against people with tatoos. That was a new one. I did ask her to give me the “ism” I was displaying with that.
My plans are postponed due to a puncture (not mine)
Just been drilling loads of holes for my new bedroom shelves, and then filling in the huge chasms that opened up in my crumbly crumbly walls . Got all the plugs in looking more or less in the right places so I’m happy with that. I’ll paint over the pencil marks tomorrow, then start cutting and installing the actual shelves
I’m in the sort of broken glass acute anxiety place I’ve been in so often
unweildy but not tl;dr details
one of my longer-term friends and his partner (also a friend) have moved away recently
last time I saw him, it was weirdly fraught/uncomfortable. he’e misremembered what I’d told him about something, basically had it backwards, and was being low-key stern/judgemental much of the time
he made it explicit, I corrected him, he sort of apologised for having forgotten, but in a barbed, warning sort of way, relating to associating with someone else - someone who I don’t really talk to anymore, as I told them - who had been friends with the two of them, but made his partner uncomfortable
it was sort of unharmonious when we departed, but not markedly bad?
he had said he’d briefly be back up in August, but if he had been, he never messaged me. I haven’t heard from him since.
just noticed that his partner has unfollowed me on Insta, but not removed me as a follower? I have no idea why, but I’m a nervous wreck as a result
yeah, idk. hard to explain. feel wary about how the friend misremembered things.
