In which i’m waiting


I’m waiting.


Sometimes I feel like I spend ¾ of my life waiting…waiting for a phone call, waiting for a repairman and waiting for other people who are never I’m time. I’m compulsively on time. If it tell somebody 1:00 then I’m there at 1:00.


I haven’t taken a shower and I’m started to get annoyed. You see, after calling the roofing guy about a billion times and him actually not showing up on one of them, he called this morning and said he’d be here around lunch time.


It’s 1:30 and I don’t know about you guys but I had my lunch a while ago. I didn’t take a shower before because he called around 11:15 or so and I figured I’d take one after.   Well, I’m still waiting …


I need him to check out a leak in the roof. Now it’s not a really big leak but I expect by the time we get it taken care of it’ll be the next century at this rate.


I also have a broken air conditioner. Broken in the sense that it’ll work for a few hours and then freeze up. I told them this and they came last week and found nothing wrong. Then they told me to see “what circumstances” that it freezes up under.


Here ya go:


It’s turned on …

And it’s hot outside …

Or cold outside …

It’s day …

Or night …

I’m in a good mood …

Or a bad mood …




I called first thing this morning but not first thing enough I guess since they’re not here yet. It’s not hot today but it will be later in the week and I need to get the damn thing fixed.


I was also expecting a delivery TODAY and they just called to verify my address so basically, WTF???


I really don’t know how people who have a job ever get anything done since waiting is a full time job in and of itself.


So there ya go! That’s what I’m up to, how about you??

    I am also a compulsive on timer. I worked for years in doctors offices….some people think appointment means that whenever they arrive is fine, because the entire world revolves around them. Appointment 20 minutes long, arrive fifteen minutes in and call it okay? Oh. Hell. No.

    I have 2 friends who are always late. I love them. I meet them often. I am always on time. Neither of them make it. One is usually 10 minutes late, and one is more like 20-30 minutes late. Waiting is not my best thing. I hate to wait for anything… people, deliveries…answers. I recently had to wait for results of medical tests ( youngest son ) I am VERY BAD at that.

    Love your blog… the everyday made funny. Hope your day sorts out.

    I’m with you on this one. I am NEVER late. If I say I’ll pick you up at 5:00 I will be your driveway at 4:57. In 23 years of marital bliss, The Mister has NEVER been ready to go anywhere before me. He is always 5 minutes behind . . .

    i started telling my now, ex-husband(not entirely because of his lateness), the meeting time was really 30 mins. before the REAL mtng. time so we would only be 15mns. late not 45…..
    Our dtr. still does that with him!
