So, this week was a bit of a @#$#$ up. Why? Because this post nearly didn’t make it. And also, my car went in for a service yesterday. And some duff up during the service made some bolt or other unthread (you know car stuff jargon) and so that meant my car was not ready yesterday.
Now that would not have been an issue. I am a reasonable person and believe me I know that $@it happens. But I called the dealership twice. Once to confirm with the Service Rep and then just as a follow up, another admin person. I had to take an Uber from the City all the way to the burbs. And in order to reach there before their closing time, I had to leave at latest 3.30pm. Traffic unpredictability and distance are huge factors to negate. Anyhow, I am quite close to the dealership in said Uber when my phone rings. “We hit a bit of a snag” after that all I heard was blah blah. Of course I had a bit of a meltdown. Having no car. I had to go and pick up my Mother. And then also redirect the Uber within seconds. Then realising my keys were on the bunch at the dealership. Once more redirect very patient kind Uber driver who made sure I needed to be where I needed to be without getting all technical about route changes. And just provided a safe space as my source of problem solution in that moment.
Anyhow, in the grand scheme of life it was not a big deal. But seriously – I had called them twice. What they should have said is, we will call you when its done! And even this morning – no call to update me. I had to call them again to find out what’s happening. What has happened to customer service? OK first-world-problem rant over.
It’s the weekend! All good on a Friday. A whole weekend lies ahead. I have a training session in the morning. I wanted to post about putting on an identity and how this makes you behave in a particular way. But I shall leave that to next week. Given that my identity got a bit hijacked yesterday and a kindly Uber driver schooled me in Ubuntu!
For now – I have continued to meet my step goals with my average being just over the 9000 steps per day average. And my second habit goal is related to me getting this blog post live. So here it is!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
