Finally!

19/11/2015

 

It was a roller-coaster day. I had to make a decision which had been disturbing me. Once the decision was made, I experienced a mini upheaval of emotions before settling down and being focused. So glad I finally managed to do so!

The best part was going home, feeling relieved and not drained! Despite leaving the office late, I was energised. In fact, I felt fresh and got to put up my Christmas tree with Arrow #3. Finally!

Reviews and Appraisals

10/11/2015

Honestly. I am somewhat disappointed really. I was looking for a specific kind of pillow. There are so many types for sale and I really wasn’t in a mood to spend precious money to try each type out. What I was looking for had to be good but of course affordable. I have had enough of these supposedly orthopaedic pillows which didnt do the job at all. So there I was, looking around, and I am sure, looking very lost. I finally located a salesperson and made my request. To my dismay, not only was he ignorant of what I was looking for, he was downright uninterested to assist! It had been a long day, and I really didnt need this sort of attitude!

This incident made me compare with other places with high standards. Some places are so good that they are recognised and obtain special rating. The one I saw recently was the Cozy Winters Reviews – they have top rating! I wonder if it’s possible to get this sort of system enforced here. That would surely pull up some proprietors!

As for the salesman… I had to do something I dislike intensely; I made a complaint. Well, it wasn’t an official complaint. What I did was to go look for someone else who looked more able to help and remark how I had asked but got no assistance from that person. Turns out that the second member of staff I was speaking to was the manager on duty. Oops!

Ouch

The rings were just too tight and I was going for a medical test which required them to be removed. So what could I do?

Thankfully I recalled a little trick I saw. A video clip was sent to me and I had watched it with rapt attention. Boy, was I glad I did!

 

Out came some line. I didnt have anything strong, but the dental floss seemed to be sufficient.

I would it round and round my finger. Then slipped one end under the ring. I began to pull the loose end and as it made its way round and round my finger, it slid the ring over my joint and voila!

Was it painful to do? Well, I think it was less painful that if I had tried it with oil, soap, etc and just pulled away. This way, I was able to get both rings off in no time, and not only the finger survived!

Now I have to decide whether or not to put them back on after the procedure!!! Should I?
