I Cant Win Today - Irony Is Out To Get Me!!

Updated on February 15, 2012

Man Walks Into A Glass Door

Justin Bieber Walks Into a Door

My Day So Far Is Turning Into A Cartoon

Honestly I am sure some one up there hates me, either that or I must have been a right swine in a previous life after my morning of madness.

7am - It began with me getting up out of bed, (as you do) and looking down at the floor thinking I wont put my slippers on, I am just going to the kitchen. I live in a flat so everything is on the level any who I continued through into the kitchen made a nice cup of coffee and was walking back through when I spilled some of the hot coffee on my bare feet. (That woke me up) I cant repeat the language I used but it was colourful that I can tell you, I hope my neighbour did not hear. I put the cup of coffee on the table almost crying as my foot was burning, (trust me in the morning put your slippers on) I turned and walked back into the kitchen heading towards the door and not fully concentrating because my foot hurt, (I created an olympic sport) I banged my toe off the door to make it worse it was the burned one, it certainly did hurt and in doing so I turned quickly and head butted the door frame so now I have a nice bruise on my head and a sore toe, I took a deep breath and counted to ten trying desperately not to cry, then walked back to the chair and banged my toe yet again off the chair leg. By this time I was ready to kill and most upset, I just drank my coffee and tried to forget about the whole sordid thing, next time I am definitely wearing my slippers.

Now then it gets good, so after my early morning capers it now starts again with what happened later this morning.....

10am - I walked over the road to Morrisons to get some shopping, (Morrisons is a big super market store chain here in Britain) The journey there was fine no problems everything had gone well so far, I began to walk inside the supermarket through the main doors, I then walked over to the side where the hand baskets are kept, I only want a few things so a trolley would not be necessary I thought. I then stood up turned round quickly lost my balance and fell on top of the baskets, everybody laughed it was so embarrassing. Luckily two people managed to help me up but I had my foot caught in one of the baskets, so one of them helped release it so that I could stand up and not end up doing the Hokey Kokey round the fruit and veg stalls...
I thanked them for helping, laughing at my self too I wish I could have filmed it.
I then went for a really long walk around the place in the hope that all the people who witnessed me fall would be gone when I pay for my things, thankfully it worked so I could buy my things in peace and avoid further embarrassment. I left very quietly and came home trying desperately to get away without being seen :)

I have to go out again in a couple of hours and this involves riding a bus, I am absolutely dreading it now, pretty sure something is gonna happen lol Dont worry though will write a hub on what happened so we can all laugh at it. I just wonder is it just me or does this stuff happen to you too? Please let me know :)

      Hi alian - you guessed it something did happen on the bus I forgot where I was going and rather than admit to the bus driver, I gave him a full description of the street including the shops as well and where my friend lived that I was visiting and where the bus stop was sooo funny :))) He laughed and helped me I think he thought I had escaped from the local nut house :)))

      I am up for that, please do email me that is my email address that I sent the message to you so I will recieve it, look forward to it now :))

      Hi Callum.

      I hope you're OK and nothing awful happened in the bus - things come in threes!!!? Old myth!

      I have an idea - as I don't understand all this IM or Facebook stuff we could email each other. I could send you a message to the address that is in the welcome message you sent me - is that an address you use? You can reply then away we go!!

      What d'ya think?

      Calpol, everybody has days like this. You seem to already have learned the trick of coping with it, which is to not take it too seriously. :-)
