List Supreme

I have thing with lists. Coffee first then I plan my day or week if it’s Monday. Classes, things rolled over from the previous week/day, things to get, shopping, appointments vs weather, chores, things from monthly to do and get list. Then there’s reminder lists on my phone. I did say have a thing with lists!

I’m never sure why I write lists. I like the satisfaction of crossing items off. It’s the non listed things that mess them up. Classes cancel, postpone, rearrange, extra grocery shopping of things I couldn’t get on ‘shopping days’, I do my usual crash and fall asleep when I get back late and nothing gets done and things roll over and then there’s the little things. A plant that needs my attention (repot, rescue from cats), unexpected house chores, things to get, you get the idea.

Like yesterday. My class cancelled and I didn’t listen to my head that said, don’t go back to sleep. Bad move. I finally get hold of the dentist after a week of trying and 2 bounced back emails to replace a filling fell out after my appointment last week. I can hear them, they can’t hear me, which explains why they haven’t called back my messages. I’ve been having this problem for a week of so. A Google search later, I clean out the microphones (ergh!) an they still can’t hear me. I call them on Skype, they can hear me, but I can’t see them until next week as Friday’s a festivo, Catalunya Day and the weekend they’re closed. While I was cleaning the phone, I cleaned my watch I’ve been meaning to for a while (equal ergh!). I manage to get the last evening appointment with Apple about my phone. Now it’s raining too hard to cycle in, I sit it out, clean the house, do some yoga while I wait for it to ease to up, so I can get to the gym. A nice empty gym thanks to the rain and a great workout trying out a few new exercises!

Where sea and sky meet. Cycling to the gym in a break in the rain.

Anyways, Apple staff must be trained having in always having a non judgmental cheerful face and saying your Castellano is great. I explained I’d cleaned all the microphones, blah, blah. I had except the phone call microphone. Insert slap face see no evil monkey emoji.

Have you ever encountered a non friendly Apple employee? Lists or have a super memory or a non wavering schedule that has no need for such a thing a list?
