Happy Friday! These Fridays are still coming round far too fast for my liking. I swear that Fridays always seemed waaaay further apart when I was younger. What’s happened to make this change? No .. seriously … why are Fridays so close together now? I really don’t understand why.
I’ve learned some strange things this week and I’d like to share them with you so that your wisdom is improved in the same way mine has been! (improved? really??) [cough] Ready? Hold hands, and on the count of three we’ll all jump together. . . . . ONE ….. TWO …. THREE!
I learned this week: That one in 20 couples argue so much on their wedding night they fail to consummate their marriage. Aw this made me so sad. I don’t mind much about the ‘consummate’ bit – but it’s the falling out with each other which saddens me. Such a wondrous day and they end it with a row! What a rotten way to spoil the memories. 😦
I learned . . . That there are enough diamonds in existence to give everyone on the planet a cupful. Kindly form an orderly queue behind me, and hold onto your cup tightly. No mugs are allowed. Cups only.
I also learned. . .
. . . that thirty-seven people were injured so seriously by tea cosies in 1999 that they were admitted to hospital.
Can you believe it? Nope, me neither! Dog only knows what on earth they were doing with a tea-cosy which they injured themselves on!
More than 150 people a day – have accidentally stabbed themselves when trying to prise the top off a jar or opening a ready meal with a knife.
379,000 injuries are caused by trainers, high heels, sandals, platforms and countless other types of footwear.
I learned from something I read that Reindeer are particularly partial to magic mushrooms. I thought about this one for a minute or two and it suddenly made total sense. This would explain how we humans had seen Santa on his sleigh, pulled by 8 dashing reindeer! The reindeer had eaten magic mushrooms! ha!
And finally, in my mode of edumacation this week, ….
I learned that when a shop or store says its got an item you want to buy “in stock” on its website, it actually isn’t what it probably has in stock. And even when the computers in the store say that there are 11 (ELEVEN) of the items you wish to buy … the staff say they’ve seen those items …and come with you to search the shelves that you’ve already searched 14 times …. those items are NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!
HOMEBASE in Dorset UK, HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME!!! Perhaps if you
Tidied the store now and again
Made it look less like a warehouse for empty boxes – and a dumping ground for products no member of staff knows what to do with so they leave boxes of stuff in the aisles for customers, to navigate and fall over.
Had more staff to deal with customers (there were 9 in a queue waiting to pay and only one member of staff on your tills)
And perhaps if you had a better system to your stocking of plants in your outdoor gardening centre …
Maybe the store would be a more pleasant and easier place to shop in. Just saying.
I think Homebase might
like to hear from me via an email to their Customer Services (although … I do wonder if that’s a non entity too, like their 11 items in stock). Hmpfffft! ☹️
Soo …. I have shared with you all my newly learned edumacation which was lovingly (?) delivered to me this week. I’m unsure if I’m any wiser, but I do feel my brain complaining. What of I don’t know … but it will soon be fine again … once it’s dumped some old information out of my right ear while I’m sleeping tonight. (I hope it hangs onto my: name, address, telephone number and passwords. The rest of the stuff I’m sure I can muddle through. lol).
Now we come to the most important bit of the Friday ‘What I learned’ posts ….
❤ THE JOKES ❤
A:I don’t know, but the flag is a big plus.
A: There’s no menu; you get what you deserve.
Dad: “Son, even I haven’t grown old enough to go out without her permission!”
Until we meet again, be good to each other and … may your God go with you.
