Rats Ate My Lunch

Rat - Ratte

Today I was looking forward to my salami and bread at work this lunchtime. I has put the lunch in a cupboard over Christmas knowing that is was cold enough to be stored there for four days. Lunchtime arrived and I went to get the stored food only to find that rats had eaten the lot! This was a great amusement for my workmates and I had to rely on their charity for lunch today.

My Cash Flow Is Frozen

My Cash Flow Is Frozen

I went to get some money out of the bank cash machine this morning but came away with nothing. The reason was it was so cold the system had frozen solid and inoperative. It was some Christmas shoppings I intended to do and now this cant' happen as I have no money. Here they doin't use debit or credit cards and yet again under the mercy of the banks who hog our money and get massive interst off it from investments behind our backs. You could say my account has been frozen for the time being. I just hope it get above freezing point after finishing work today so I can try again.

Frozen Brakes

The Lada pops up again with bad luck yet again. It was a very cold night around –7 C and the Lada started up without too much problems. After a few minutes warming the engine and clearing the snowed windows it was into fist gear and release the handbrake to drive away, but I wasn’t’ going anywhere. The brakes had frozen solid as the Lada refused to budge. It was another day for a taxi, money we couldn’t afford and a begging appeal for a lift home from one of my workmates. Another tip that was given was to not apply the handbrake in freezing weather and to carry a brick to stop the Lada car rolling on hills when parked in these weather conditions.

Leaking Lada Petrol Pipe

My Lada uses gas even though the option to use the petrol is always there. Petrol is twice the price of gas so it is hardly ever used unless I run out of gas. The last time the petrol option was used was around three months ago when I ran out of gas. Today was another time I had to use it as it was sub zero temperatures overnight and the gas will not start up unit the engine is warm in these conditions. As the engine was turned over and started the smell of petrol was evident. I checked under the bonnet and there was a leak in a fuel pipe that was dripping over the engine. Another repair due and more cost of motoring this winter.

Bulgarian Time

Cold War ClockImage by ckaiserca via Flickr
I had to get to work early today to load up a van for a delivery. I was asked to turn up at 6:30 in the morning to help the driver with this chore. Turning up dead on the dot, missing breakfast and a cup of tea beforehand I waited outside the factory. I waited and the waiting continued in the cold dark morning that threatened snow. No driver until 7:30 arrived. there was no apology just the fact that he was Bulgarian and runs by Bulgarian time which could mean any time! I could have had an extra hour in bed instead of pacing up and down the factory yard trying to keep warm on an empty stomach!

Two Broken Drills and More

Two Broken Drills and MoreImage via Wikipedia

At work today luck has it that the drill I was working with broke down. This wasn't really bad luck, that came five minutes later when the new one that replaced it broke after a short while of use. I am in the bad book with my boss who thinks I abuse the tools that he provides. On top of all this a strip of matel snapped on one of the boiler doors I was working on. Again I get the blame not the inferior metal that causes it to snap!
