HATE tech troubles! Good luck with getting it fixed.

Dammit, my (wildly expensive) insurance company has changed the grace period from 30 days to two weeks. This means if I don't pay $407 by tomorrow I'm not covered. Do I have $407, and will I by tomorrow? No.

Gah.

That kind of thing is why people don't like insurance companies.

Well, full disclosure (about their likely disclosure) - they could have reduced from 30 days five or ten years ago and I would not know it because really I have been fortunate and not had to USE a grace period in a long time. It turned out I was able to make the payment, but it IS frustrating to be sitting up at ten thirty on a Sunday peering at bank records after what had been a pleasurable day. I probably should not complain.

And so in honor of that I won't complain today!

Man Flu

Postby Ken » Tue April 10th, 2012, 8:33 pm

I awoke today to the worst Man-Flu ever experienced in the history of bad Man-Flu! Razor blades in my throat when I swallow and the residue of fourteen toilet rolls beside the bed (so far).

Yes, I know that you women canot understand the pain and suffering we males have to go through, but the least you can do is to sympathise. I'm waiting ............. :(

Poor, baby! ;) I'm the last female you should appeal to. In the first trimester of my pregnancy (which passed in a totally exhausted fog) my unlucky husband had back surgery and was confined to bed for a couple of weeks. I'd fix him breakfast, leave lunch in a bag, water, etc. and drag my hormone embattled body off to work. When I told my secretary about my husband's situation, she looked at me in horror and asked, "What if there's a fire?"

I thought for a moment and replied, "He can still crawl."

I flew my mother out the next day to take care of him (and me) for a couple of weeks. :o

Aw! Poor Ken! I'd send you some soup but it probably wouldn't be edible by the time it got there.
