Some days are just annoying, irritating, exasperating, infuriating, tiring and maddening. Each and every task you take up or that falls upon you like Newton’s apple, has to go wrong. Are the stars to blame, or is it the wrong note set at the very start of the day, that propagates throughout the day, spoiling it in its entirety? Whatever be the reason, today was one such day that pestered me and forced me to rant about it aloud.
The day commenced with mild headache. It was probably the consequence of browsing through the mobile phone, as soon as I opened my eyes. Oh, but don’t I do the same everyday? Yes I do, but who knows, may be today I opened my eyes some degrees wider, a second or two before they could accurately adjust to the pricking bright light :|. I soon realized, this headache is not letting go of me so easily; it is here to stay.
Why do people eat apple in office bus? Can’t they spare 5 minutes from their super tight schedules and eat it at home and then board the bus? Or can’t they just excuse me and find any other seat that is not in close proximity to me? That crunching sound is too irritating and believe me, I could hear it even with my earphones on and songs played at highest possible decibel, my phone could emit.
Next, I met an annoying person at the bus bay. When your head is being continuously hammered from inside, all you wish for, is silence and peace and not any infuriating conversations.
Waving at me from a distance, I could actually envisage him saying “Hello, I am here to spoil your peaceful walk to the office building.” After an obligatory Hello, I said I have an important phone call to make, thinking he will walk away and leave me alone. But No! He decided to ignore my ignoring him and continued to walk. Plus, I had to make a forceful call to someone too.
Headache was now getting increasingly onerous. Checked my bag for a packet of Crocin tablets, but there wasn’t any. Hurtled straight to the chemist shop in campus, only to find it closed, scheduled to open 2 hours later, leaving me with no alternative but to bear the pain. Coffee, food, eye exercises – nothing could budge the pain. It probably loved being my companion.
Why are all the meetings planned far away from your building only on the day you wear heels? Wearing a pair of heels in a frenzy, proved to be completely dreadful today. Meetings with insufficient lead times, make your planned work go for a toss. Plus, when you have headache and leg ache they seem even worse. Additionally, if they end up handing over no brainer documents and sheets to complete, nothing can sound more terrible.
Needless to say, all the additional work made me stay late at work. At the end of the day, I was so knackered that I couldn’t even entertain the thought of hitting the gym. Guilt and regret that comes from inability to go to gym, when the scale has just started going down is beyond explanation. Hope those who have gone through this will agree.
To end the day on a less negative, if not on a positive note, I decide to grab a soothing cup of frappe from nearby coffee shop. Ah, but there is a fly in the ointment yet again! There is no one to serve me, the person supposedly has gone to collect a courier. I am sitting here, waiting for him, for more than 20 minutes now, penning my painful day down, but there are no signs of his return. I think, I should just leave now and accept today is not my day.
The day was a far cry from conventional Friday. Though it was an awful day, upcoming weekend appears to me like a light at the end of the tunnel. Hope it helps replenish my levels of positivity.
