GeneralI thought I was having a bad day... Pin

...when the cat woke us up at 04:00 by hurtling round the bedroom with / in pursuit of something squeaky.

Once we get lights on and so forth, and separate teh two, it turns out to be a bat (Pipistrelle[^] in fact - haven't seen any locally for a couple of years).

OK - catch the bat, get it outside and I can go back to bed.
Not that easy - they fly well those things, and never in a direction you want them to - and I don't want to harm it.
Takes about half an hour (and ignoring it completely so it settles) but I finally get it into a pint glass, take outside, and it flies off into the night.

By which stage I am well awake, and can't get back to sleep.

So I'm sleep deprived, grumpy and clearly going to have a bad day.

Until I get a call from a friend: his mother passed away overnight...

Sometimes, the little things that get in your way and make your day nasty pale into insignificance, and you realize that they are trivial and you should look to the positive things in your life instead. Maybe I'll be nice to idiots in QA today instead of being rude after all.

You looking for sympathy?
You'll find it in the dictionary, between sympathomimetic and sympatric
