Last call!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: last call. Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business youre not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

****
The last call I recieved was from my phone service provider!

The first call they made to me, I missed it! I tried calling the number back, but I got an automated voice, saying, someone from Eir was trying to get hold of you!

Well damn! I suppose now I have to wait for you to try again!

Which they did eventually!

Why were they calling me?

To tell me I owed money on my bill, and I needed to pay it or I’d be cut off! Well damn again!

What normally happens is, your bill comes out, but they only give you two weeks to pay it off, this bill comes once a month, and mine is usually about 150 euro!

I know that seems expensive, but I have phone, broadband and tv with them!

Anyway, did I pay it off? No, not yet! Lol!

So I suppose they’ll call me again soon to tell me pay it or else!

They only ever call me when they want my money! Either for the bill, or else they might call to ask me to add a service, or upgrade my plan!

Why dont they ever call and tell me hey, we’re giving you something, a free month maybe?

Fat chance of that!

Dreaded weigh in!

Here we go! Weigh in day. That time, that dreaded time of the week. Oh god, please let me have a good result this morning. Please. I was so good this week. So so good and I didnt eat junk food. I ate loads of fruit, vegetables, and I drank a ton of water. So hopeful I’ve done enough. But we’ll see.

Wish me luck!

Goobledygook

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 19th, 2020, is gobbledygook]

******
What to write, what to write. This gobbledygook post is brought to you by me, Carol anne!
My day was full of rest, and relaxing. I had a nap this afternoon. That was nice. I did really enjoy it immensely.
I had leftovers for dinner, which actually tasted really good, and were better second time around.
I’ve been playing spotify. I am playing the hits from the movies playlist and have been enjoying singing along to it.
I have my weigh in in the morning! I am so nervous. I just hope its going to be a good result.
The weather tonight is cold. Its only 3 degrees C here. There is frost on the grass. Nitro sure wasnt impressed when he went out. But he did go out for me.
I am trying to cut back on the amount of caffeine I am drinking, and so I am not drinking any coffee tonight. Well we’ll see how long I can last without it.
So from me to you, I hope you enjoyed my gobbledygook ramble!
