    Of course, after the dust storm, Harvey (our name for the automatic pool cleaner) stops working and the filter pump ****s itself. Because there are so many filthy pools, the repair bloke is busy, so it takes 10+ days to get the bastard back in.

    In the meantime, the idiot pool shop bloke says "keep the chlorine up to it", which I do, but am unsure how much I need. The pool man, who's had our data for like 3 years, says he doesn't know either. fat lot of good he is.

    So of course, the pool is now ****ing green. I hate it when it's like that, because it generally means about $200-300 worth of chemicals go into the bastard.

    Then to top it all off last night, I'm cleaning the skimmer box out and a ****ing bee stings me on the finger. Arsehole. I did not give permission for this bee to be in our pool, and it was swimming unsupervised. I hope the **** died a long and painful death tbh.


    You know you're closer to death than birth when you're calling a pool cleaner Harvey and wishing painful deaths to buzzy bees.

    If you did it'd probably pop up out of the pool every 10 minutes to go on an inspired rant about something. I'd buy it if that was one of the features. Would be great at a BBQ.

    Ok what I say here is in the nicest possible way but, there are people with much worse problems than you some people are dying some people are seriously ill and they would give anything to be in your position, there are much worse problems than wondering whether you like someone or not.
    Seriously, some people just don't realise how lucky they are.

    CDM, you are some one who tries to be cool but don't do it that well. You are an out of the box thinker, and you like to have old men in your avatar more. Also, with no offense as I like you a fair bit, you are a bit of a kid who I see maturing a lot in a few years as you hit puberty. You don't have a deep understanding of the female body yet.

    Isn't that the smart way of saying 'I can't get girls' ?

    Last night my mate was drunk and having a rant about his life and then apologised because apparently my problems are much worse than his, I told him to **** off because it's all relative. Just because someone is worse off than you doesn't mean you've no right to feel down when things aren't going your way.
