Yeah, I know.. Long time no write!
This week has been a bit emotional and busy at work, and I’ve not really known what to blog, so I just didn’t!
Though I thought, I HAVE to blog my blonde moment today…
I was on my way home, and I stopped at a garage to put some air in my tyres. (I think one of them – a new one – has a slow puncture or something..) Anyhoo.. I get to the ‘air pump’ thingy (after mistaking the self-service wash-your-car thing for the air), and take off the little cap on the tyre. I press a button that looks like ‘power’, then push the hose onto the tyre valve. And my tyre is getting flatter and flatter and nothing’s happening. It’s just letting the air out! So I press the ‘power’ thingy again and try in vain to read the instructions, which have been all but rubbed off. And my tyre’s getting flatter.
So I see this bloke coming past, in shorts and a t-shirt – a manly type with paint on his clothes who looks like he knows about these things – and ask if he can help. Lo and behold, as soon as he bends down to help, I notice another post – right next to the air machine – where, on a silver box, it is written in biro ‘press here to turn on’. So I turn it on and feel very very stupid. And shoo the man away, apologizing profusely for being so blonde.
By the time I’d finished, my hands were black. But at least I know how to work the air machine now….
