Out in the boonies this morning for a customer that needed his iMac and his Son's MacBook Pro upgraded to OS X 10.9.2. Some here might remember my post for help that was kindly moved to CP's boonies.

Then in the early after to another customer in the slightly closer to home boonies. Finished there about 17:30 when I was meant to be at a job (for the mob I work for) between 16:00 and 17:00. Rang the customer and he was fine with me getting there at 18:00. While driving there I get a call for another job they want done between 18:30 and 19:30 a further half hour out. Should have said no but need the money so agree to go.

Get to the 16:00 job at 18:00 and the job goes on for ever. Call the other bloke (had call with updates a couple of times earlier) and advise will not get there till closer to 21:30. He asks if I want to still come over or do it tomorrow. I don't want it at all but want tomorrow free so agree to wander over.

Driving along and find my way through the little back streets and was searching for the road sign for the road I was turning into. A rather major thoroughfare, so I at least expect good signage if not a round-a-bout or even traffic lights.

None of this exists, and even though it is an obvious intersection with stop signs, I manage to miss all this while looking for the street sign and T-Bone some poor woman and her kid.

The cars a write off, I'm just starting to feel the soreness that is going to kick in hard tomorrow and feel like an idiot. Lots of speeding tickets 20+ years ago and I like aggressive driving to passive, but I was being careful (you wouldn't think so with the result) and not speeding at all and end up in a clusterfuck.

Need the car for work and was finally getting in front of the bills and life, but just copped a kick to the nuts I could do without.

On top of that there is no alcohol in the house and thanks to our Conservative Premier (he is a complete knob gobbler) you can't buy take away alcohol after 22:00. I finished up around 23:00 so have to settle for a cup of tea instead. I can hardly tell the difference.

Oh, and the air bags didn't deploy. Might talk to the insurance company about that, they had it repaired 5 or 6 months ago.
