I Shake My Fist At You Fernando!

Updated on March 31, 2013

I shake my fist at you Fernando!


I shake my fist at you!


When you introduced yourself to me, I admit that I was impressed.


I heard the name Fernando and I thought that like the Fernando ABBA sang about you might bring something with you in the air.


But the drums that came along with you were drums of doom weren't they Fernando?


You said all the things I wanted to hear and that accent of yours made me really think that you were smooth.....but it was all a cover up wasn't it? Wasn't it?


You weren't really that smooth, were you Fernando?


I told you all my problems and you said not to worry. You said how sorry you felt for me and that you would fix it.


Just give you some time, you said, and so I did. I trusted you.


I trusted you.


I gave you permission to interfere because you said that you would make everything all right. But it's not all right now is it Fernando?


It's all wrong!


WHAT DID YOU DO, FERNANDO ? WHAT DID YOU DO ?!!


I shake my fist at you Fernando!!!
I shake my fist at you Fernando!!! | Source

Instead of making things better you made it worse!


You kept saying you were sorry but I know you did not mean it. I have come to the realization that you lie for a living.


You are a living liar.


The icing on the cake was the fact that you turned it around after you did your irresponsible deed and said that it was my fault!


HA!


My fault !


I looked in the dictionary to find a suitable name that describes you, Fernando, but there is no definition that is worthy of what you are.....you.....you.....ugh!


I was like a child searching for a missing piece of a puzzle to complete it and you came along, pretending to be kind and helpful. You took the puzzle, smashed it to pieces, and cut up the cardboard!


You were probably one of those kids who smashed other people's Lego towers, weren't you Fernando?


One of those who Roundhouse kicked sandcastles.


And I'll bet you laughed too.


Oh, I could hear your smirk on the line when we spoke.


When you said, "Dat iz all I can do to elp you," and "I'm berry sorry," I heard the glee that laced your voice.


You continued on to give me advice about the mess you had made. (As if I'll ever listen to a word that ever comes out of your mouth again.)


I hung up the phone and tried my best to put the pieces back together but nothing worked. It was completely destroyed.


Frustrated, I tried to call you back to give you a piece of my mind, but you must have been on to me because you put your friend Peggy to answer the phone.

She acted as though she could solve the problem too and made me jump through a million hoops before she told me the same thing you did.......It was my fault!


She said that she really could not help me and that she was sorry just like you but really it was not her fault or yours.


I tried not to growl when I explained to her that the problem was a small one when I called you Fernando.


I tried to explain to Peggy that you went and touched things you should not have touched, that you confidently pressed all the wrong buttons.


You trained her well Fernando because what did she do?


She made a strange non-committal noise that was supposed to pass as a sympathetic tone, and ended by saying still that it was my fault and you did not touch anything.


I know how mad people feel, Fernando.


I am sure you will be pleased to know that my nails have been bitten to the quick and I have that crazy glint in my eyes.



Because of you nothing is the same as it was and now here I am, hunched over in the corner of the library, typing furiously.


The attendant is hovering over me waiting to warn me that visiting social websites is forbidden and that my time is almost up.


This is what I have come to, Fernando.


Are you happy? Are you?


Whether you are or not, I shake my fist at you, Fernando!

I SHAKE MY FIST AT YOU!!!!!

      That is a good idea. I had not thought about it.

      I know exactly what you mean, Michele. Has it crossed your mind to do a hub about the joy your daughter brings? Perhaps other mothers will appreciate it and identify with it.

      Thank you. That is sweet of you to say. Instead of "Oh, I am so sorry for you" lol, you know what I mean.

      You sound like you have a close relationship with your daughter and that is something that many mothers do not have.I know how much you love her and she is lucky to have a mother like you :)

      It did, but my daughter makes a lot of music stick in my head now. She thinks it is funny. She is 16, so that is not bad. At 16, things could be much worse. She really is a great kid. Still wants to be a kid. She has Aspurger's, I have learned a lot about it, and love her more then anything in the world.

      Michele I confess that I only knew two ABBA songs and they were Dancing Queen and Fernando. Then the ads for that show Mamma Mia came on the TV and I realized that they sang a lot more than that.

      They made the type of music that really stuck in your head didn't they?

      Hi Sky9106, glad I could make you laugh! I can't really hear the name Fernando without thinking of ABBA because I remember a friend's mother listening to that particular song all the time.

      Dance away and enjoy the day, Sky9106,

      Blessings to you as well.

      Glorious North Wind , he he between your profile page and this Fernando you met?? Well happy tears! I can laugh till I cry much easier than a sad story make me cry. And this is hilarious!

      Already this Peggy boy !!!! And he reminds you of a fraudulent Fernando? There is humor in everything , so ids there a flip side.

      Here's to the humor.

      Glorious read for me. Ha Ha !

      And thanks for the ABBA Reminder . I love them. So I am you dancing queen today.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Bless.

      Thanks Michele! Peggy does not have to worry because they are two peas in a pod so much alike that they could never harm each other!

      I am glad that you enjoyed it :)

      Hyphenbird, I must have counted to ten a million times and shredded at least five sheets of printing paper with my bare hands while on the line with those call centers. Frustrating does not begin to describe the feeling but when it is over at least you can laugh about it a bit!

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I always look forward to your visit!

      Hello Alexander Pease,

      You are right - it did not feel awesome when he messed things up and the library assistant was not what I would call beautiful. Surely those affected by the stock market crash and the recession went through things like this and some still go through it today.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting :)

      Hi Johnjfernando! I am sorry. I didn't mean to scare you :) I am sure that you are nothing like the Fernando I wrote about!

      Hilarious. I am still snickering. Those call centers make on simply mad with frustration.

      There is no 'OMG' button that I could click. This story is not awesome, because whatever that Fernando did was surely not awesome. The library techinician is not beautiful for seemingly tapping that watch of hers. This story is OMG, as in, I can't believe that Fernando would do whatever it was he did. I am guessing that money was involved though.

      Excellent hub. It brings back memories of the stock market crash and the recession.

      I got scared for a moment when I read the title because my profile name is Johnjfernando. ;)
