How to Drive Someone Crazy?

Image
I have two invoices/receipts for A. J. and also a cheque with him and few letters at his place. I have been to his, two times since I don’t work for him anymore. He has called me several times in past 5 days but I didn't pick up. I don’t know what’s he up to but I simply just don’t wanna talk to the son of a bitch, although I may make $400 roughly without moving a finger. I know this is driving him crazy. That’s why he called me three times yesterday and I, apparently, didn’t pick up! I indirectly forced him to stop calling, no matter what he wants. He called S. J. a few days ago and asked about me but S. J. is a nice guy and good friend, regardless of all his retardant(!) and said nothing. This above little table shows how many times that motherfucker, liar, shameless, cheapskate, asshole called in last 5 days, without hearing from me. I have more for him! Note: Don't ask why the last call has been made at 11:33 AM while it is posted at 11:07 AM! That's beca

Head Game

It’s almost a month now that I live with S. J. in this small one bedroom apartment. He’s a very nice and flexible guy but stupid and stubborn at the same time. His income in last 5 years haven’t been more than $15000 in a year ! He has recently been hired by the Ministry of Transportation after finishing a 2-year stupid program in BCIT . He’s about to finish his probationary period, a 6 month term. I have recently started a head game with the dumb ass. I really enjoy it. I know this is sick but I really like this although has not much influence on him. What I have started telling him is that the economic situation in Canada and specifically BC is not good and is goin’ to be worse. Things like “1 out of 5 Canadian would be laid off in the next 6 month in BC ”, “This is the worst situation ever ”, “ Inflation rate jumped up to 3.1% this month ” (this is true!) and “ I have booked my ticket to home ”. I found out that he’s going to buy a car. He has one. It’s a junk but He's g

Got Back on Track

I started working out at the beginning of June. I went to the gym every day first and put a bit of pressure on me which is wrong. Then just started going every other day this week with the hope of getting ready for every day work out. The place is a small gym with few machines but it’s OK. I’m going to make a table and record my exercises and track my weight. I weighted myself today and it was 202 lb ! I think the scale is accurate because I tested it with a dumbbell the other day but I wasn’t expected that much. I got a lot during my 25 day journey to the other side of the globe and have to get lean. There’s an exercise session for the people who are interested in a career in VPD and that is held every Wed. I’m going to try that as soon as I feel I’m a bit stronger but that won’t happen in next 2 months.

Trip Coverage, Story 7: Not Enough of Not “tingham”

This story regards to my next trip in May which made me to stay in Nottingham , the UK for 2 nights: Kids went to school and Dino got to work in the morning of Fri. and then Merissa said that she wanted to do shopping for Nick ’s birthday which was Sun. and added that she would give me a ride to city centre. That was very rare of her. The bossy girl has Dino completely under her control. We hoped in her Range Rover and she drove away from home toward the city. They live in a type of suburb neighbourhood of Nottingham . She drove over Trent River , by Nottingham Castle and through the city. Unfortunately I neither had time nor was in the mood of roaming around. So I just followed her wherever she went: Toy store, apparel retailer, hardware store and supermarket. She surprisingly bought me a chocolate bar and a hot dog! That was our lunch and dessert! Everything is being run by Merissa at home, my aunt said once and I thought she was exaggerating. But she was right. She only

Fucked up in BC

It’s been almost 3 week since I’m back to Canada and staying with S. J. , looking for a career: Nothing, Zip, a big goose egg, nada! All I’ve got is a short stupid interview with a recruiter in Downtown Vancouver regarding a Quality Control job. I was supposed to meet with the company people but nothing has happened yet. Unemployment rate went up in the month of June according to Statistic Canada and Ontario suffered more amongst all the provinces. The fucking problem is my poor pretty F. F. is in the process of immigration and with no job it will be almost impossible to do anything. I don’t know if I’m staying here or going to Lethbridge but Alberta is not goin’ to happen before end of July. The only good thing that has been started last week and I see a little progress, is working out. I started that last Sun. and I decided to go at least 6 days a week, losing weight and getting lean. May be this all exercises eventually help me to get my job in the Navy or some similar for

There's no intention to turn this blog to a newscast but sometimes I'd like to write about the things which attract my attention. The Seattle -based coffee chain store, Starbucks , announced a few days ago that it will close more than 600 stores soon. That doesn't bother me and I also have no sympathy for them because I never was a Starbucks fan and never liked it. What's surprising is all the people who are happy of what's happening to them. It's said the coffee shop grew to fast in a short period of time. There was once news of Starbucks cafe opening in Forbidden City in Peking , China . Some opposed to it as a sign of an assault to Chinese culture and history and some accepted it as a good, relaxing drink where it might be actually needed. I saw Starbucks both in Germany ( Koln ) and UK ( Nottingham ) but seem that those days are over. Many people are happy because they see that as a relief for local businesses. Small town of Squamish has two Starbu

The Jackass Offers!

Motherfucker A. J. called me another day and obviously I didn ’t pick up. He kept calling and then called S. J. He told me that he wanted me to call him. It was a little late but I was a little afraid so called him and pretended that I was away from the phone. He had a job offer for me! Can you believe this? The asshole always says that I am lazy and this and that! Now he asks me to join him for another project in Squamish ! I didn ’t say No because I still have my letters going to his fucking address so have to pretend that I’m willing to work with him. So I was there today to pick up the mail and he explained the story. He said that there’s a guy from Hong Kong and he expect that the project brings $35,000 as commission or percentage and he want s to pay me the most! Even a cooked turkey would laugh in a pot! He said that he counted on me! I obviously need the money and if I get $20,000 and that’s in 6 months, it will be perfect but in the meantime I don’t want to work for him b

Price of Gasoline

Gasoline price hit ¢149.9 yesterday, driving people crazy. S. J. who works for the Ministry of Transportation of BC said that many road projects have been cancelled. It’s anticipated that the number of vehicles will dramatically drop. It’s said that 100,000 less vehicle will be driven in BC , next year. The prospected Surrey-Vancouver highway is the one which is never going to be under construction. It’s said: It’s not supposed that the one who lives in Surrey , works in Vancouver and vice versa. So why is the price of oil and its products going up? There are different answers to this; the most accepted one is high market demand. And how this new high demand has been emerged? We now that major manufacturers in the world started shifting their facilities to Asia a few years ago. Nike and Adidas are good examples. Everything you buy these days in Canada , no exaggeration, almost everything is made in China . So a large group of people, probably millions, are getting rich and t
