Its Christmas .. Bah .. Humbug
And so, its almost Christmas .. with everything, that's supposed to mean, but rarely does.
Maybe its old age creeping on, but, am getting increasingly less tolerant, of people who are either clearly idiots, or have lent their brains, to others less fortunate.
In previous yrs, I would probably have shrugged it off .. but, am finding that option, is becoming rarer and rarer.
It all started, when I tried to log-in to the local cell phone website, to check my data levels.
The website lets u nest multiple numbers, under 1 'super-user' number .. but, unfortunately, if u don't use the super-user number for 180 days, the log-in is disabled, and .. u cant register the nested numbers, as they have been previously associated in the database .. thus, ensues, a long twitter/call centre battle, which, is still on-going.
I can understand problems .. and am tolerant etc, especially in Africa .. but, having had 4 chats with call-centre personell, its a bit tiring.
To try and relax, I have been playing poker (golf, is less an option, as my clubs are in a different place, and its a bit hot, anyway).
I was doing rather well in a tournament, with blinds getting quite steep, when the 'new' tournament director, came over, and said this was the last hand, before the table was being broken. Thats fine .. especially as the next hand, I was the big blind.
I picked up a hand, which was marginal, and, as the table was being broken, decided to fold.
Waiting for the table to be broken, the director got a phone call, and said, the table must play on.
I was v unhappy with this .. and vented .. to no avail, and literally threw my toys (in this case, chips), everwhere, when I lost a third of my stack on the next hand, and then they broke the table.
Venting even more, u were expected to move mountains of chips, without the use of table racks .. the staff are really fucking useless .. and I once again vented, letting everyone know, what I felt.
