Argh!!!

Boy I had a bad day yesterday. I'm actually having a pretty bad week but yesterday takes the cake. My cell phone is basically broken. It is now permanently searching for a signal. I'm not the kind of guy that gives a shit about having a nice phone, but I would love to be able to make calls, or even text.

Anyway, our AT&T U-Verse TV service decided to crap out as well last night. Actually yesterday afternoon. The signal was all choppy and pixelated so I power cycled the receivers but ... nothing. And I would have called them but ...

THEN, as if I needed another problem, Kelly's car stalled on the way to work and I had to go pick her up and it wouldn't start. And I would have called a tow truck but ...

How did she get a hold of me? My daughter's phone, but I couldn't take that with. Well actually I could have, but I didn't think of it. So I was effed.

There are worse things going on too but I can't write about them in public places where the 20 people who read my blog my find out about them.

Well I can't rant much more because I have to write Rose's guest post and that does cheer me up a little ... but I will say:

POOP ON YOU WORLD! I hope the mesh underwear liner of your swim trucks chafes your crotch in a most uncomfortable way today! I hope an ageless and sparkly dirty old man vampire begins to date your daughter! I hope Seth Grahame-Smith writes A Tale of Two Cities Both Called Bikini Bottom next! And we all love it!

Bah humbug.

Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. It all seems to happen at once, doesn't it?

Ted Cross said...

Sorry, Matt. Ten years ago AT&T screwed me over, so I told the rep on the phone that they would never get another penny from me. So far, I have upheld my promise!

Vicki Rocho said...

I feel your frustration. Daughterling needs a new phone and I'm hoping she can make it another month or two so we can get her a free one with a renewed plan...those things are flippin EXPENSIVE otherwise. And I don't need the bells and whistles either!

Old Kitty said...

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear of your telephone woes and just when you needed it most to help your daughter! Oh my goodness!

yes bah humbug to all and sunder!!

But in the great words of Ms Scarlett O'Hara (oh ok, Ms Margaret Mitchell) "Tomorrow is another day!"

Take care

Hang in there, Matt! I HATE bad days, especially when they fall in together to make for a bad week. Thinking about you and sending positive energy your way!

Candyland said...

YEAH-POOP ON YOU WORLD! It seems like the world has been hating on a lot of people lately. Here's to things looking up...

Will Burke said...

Must be something in the stars; a lot of bad days going around. Let's start an anti-tech compound!

Justine Dell said...

The laugh paragraph made me laugh. You've really got a way with words, Matt. :o)

But when it rains, it pours, right? Hopefully the weekend will come fast and it will be better!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Just think - next week it can only get better.

Giles Hash said...

It royally sucks when things all pile up in one week!

I know the feeling... Take THAT world! :P

Christina Lee said...

I love your rant! Um I have to tell you our U-Verse goes out every month-ughh! But yeah, that sounds like one hell of a craptastic day! *hugs*

Jess said...

I have to say, I enjoy any post that includes the word "crotch." By the way, where do you think the world's crotch is located? I think it might be mobile, but I saw it for sure in a seedy bar last year in Baltimore. :) Hope things start to get better!

Matthew Rush said...

B-More definitely has some sections that resemble a crotch. Ever been to Edmonson Ave?

I would have replied by email Jess but you don't have one associated with your blogger account.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Awwww, you poor thing. So sorry you're having a tough time of it. Cheer up. It could be my phone that had died.

Wait.

Huh.

That probably did not cheer you up.

(Hope things start looking up for you soon!)

Jemi Fraser said...

Yikes - hope things get better really soon! :)

Cole Gibsen said...

Hang in there, Matt! **CYBER HUGS**

this...was awesome.
That sucks that you're having a crap week. But there's always tomorrow

Renae said...

I hope things start looking up for you! I hate it when everything crappy happens all at once. Been there myself lately. I'm hoping that means good things are right around the corner! Hang in there!

Elliot Grace said...

...hang in there pal, last week I invested over two grand in new appliances and general stupidness due to household breakdowns.
...must be a virus going around:)

K. M. Walton said...

Pure suckage, my friend. At least it's over. New day. New day.

Elana Johnson said...

Aw, I'm sorry. Hope today is better. And tomorrow. And then it's the weekend!

Lisa_Gibson said...

Hope your day has gotten better. You're curses hurled out to the world were too funny. Very creative. ;) Hang tough, at least Friday is on the way.

Rose Cooper said...

I think a lot more than 20 people read your blog :) I hate weeks like that and hope yours only gets better! And sorry, but the end of your post cracked me up!

Talli Roland said...

Ugh - I hear you. Sometimes the world just feels like a big poopy place to be. I hope you're having a better day today!

Matt Conlon said...

Yeesh, that does sound like a bad set of circumstances... Hope things get a little better.

On a side note, I have that Picard picture hanging on my office wall. Caption says: FACEPALM Because expressing how dumb that was in words just doesn't work.

I'm in IT, and I send that to my users from time to time.

Donna Hole said...

Thanks Matt; I feel so much better now :)

Always nice to hear someone is having a worse week than myself.

But I'm bummed for you too. I like the way you flip off the universe.

Good luck getting it all sorted out. You're resourceful; you'll get there.

Michele Emrath said...

Oh, man...my world was moody Tuesday. But, as you can see on that day's post, blogging/writing helped me as well.

Hope tomorrow is better!
