    Dana! You could say that it fell out of your pocket into a puddle while you were changing a flat or some other task- that's what happened to my last I-pod

    Or you could say what happened to my sister's- she sat it on the table when cleaning out her pocket and then her friend accidentally knocked over a can of rootbeer on it- the poor I-pod died then.

    And could we have a worst 24 hours contest? In the course of 24 hours in 2006 I learned that my mom had cancer, someone ran into my car in a parking lot and knocked off the mirror and dented the door, I walked in on my fiance having sex with my housemate (in my bed), was a victim of crime and had my engagement ended

    ... and lost one of my favorite pairs of shoes

    And an INTP of all people should know that even being "voluntarily" broke by being in "college" or "class" doesn't alter the underlying problem of "broke." Please don't make me draw a diagram. My MS Paint skills, while legendary, are legendary for all the wrong reasons.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    IDK about worst 24 hours.

    But is it bad to feel better due to hearing other people's bad luck?

    things go well. things go badly. I think I'm in a bad phase now re work. Caught in a chess game where I'm a pawn and am getting blocked. A line manager so anal she'll suck up the chair she sits on. Always asking what value do you add here. Why are you doing this/that. Suggesting I keep a time sheet where I log what I do by the hour so "you can justify your value". etc.

    No way out that Ne can see. I think I'd be lucky to still have a job by next year.

    Sometimes the worst thing isn't something bad happening. It is when you feel that something will happen, but it hasn't yet, and you cannot stop it.
    I am shamelessly self-promoting a thread complaining about work.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Oh don't worry the cookie should arrive blessed by a... no two representatives of the Vatican, under armed guard in a sealed container checked by the CDC and warded from evil spirits by the old woman of Northumbria.

    As close to guaranteed not cursed as it gets...

    THAT'S what you bought the dog for! I see now. That would have made the day a much more cheerful one... kinda Benny Hill ish but much nicer.

    I'm thinking your cookie (were you to win with that pittyful attempt!) then perhaps it should conceal a shuriken within it. That way it's enjoyable and useful!

    I shouldn't laugh but that addition just struck me as funny. Talk about topping a day off.

    It wasn't a Monday too was it?
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
