I had a few minor issues with my life over the past few days that needed to be corrected. On Monday night I removed my phone from its charger and fumbled it. The world started moving in slow motion as I started to panic and grab for the descending piece of equipment. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be and it landed straight on the screen. I was praying as I turned it over hoping for no crack but it cracked in about 1,000 spots. I’d take a picture but taking a picture of a phone with the same phone proves challenging.
Last week I wrote a post about my elbow cyst and today was the day I get it checked out. The appointment was at 9:30 so I decided to turn the day into a sales trip for our line of paint scrapers. I was up at 6am and visited 5 stores before I arrived for my appointment. I’ll get more into this in the future but we’ve designed a covering for a scraper that will help it sell at the store level which is actually a talking point when I visit these stores.
The appointment was scheduled with a babe doctor. I whipped out my…elbow and she stuck a needle in it and drained out the fluid. It was only about half drained and the sample was sent to a lab for further review. It was fairly gross.
After getting the elbow looked at I ventured to the mall and found 2 places that would repair the screen. One for $120 and the other for $180. I thought to myself I could negotiate a better deal with Verizon. I had already accomplished this months earlier but I don’t expect this situation to be run of the mill because I have no insurance and they have me in a tough spot with my upgrade being in 2016.
I was also there to replace the jacket that I wear everyday that was lost on Saturday night. I’m a weird person in that I have to have a jacket that I like but won’t pay $300 dollars for. The only one I’ve found is a Jos. A Bank black coat that’s a hundred bucks and nice. I will buy a 3rd same style coat in 2 years.
After all of today I’m still down a coat and have a cracked screen on my phone but have game plans for both. I hate writing posts like this that document my life but they are easy to write and I haven’t had the time to post in a while so this buys me some time.
