Ned in M and S

So today was pretty cold and it is rare that I can wear my own work because it is pretty weatherproof, so I took the firecoat out for a spin, which was pretty funny.

Once I had finished making it, which was the tail end of the pandemic, hence the mask in the pic, I had put it away as it took A LOT of work and Grimes was too busy to see my very small number of posts featuring it anyway. I don’t exactly make the intent clear, they have to be paying attention. Boris has been the star of the show in terms of encouragement so far, with Wolfe running a close second due to general bewilderment.

So I am in M and S getting some couscous and this woman is in the queue in front of me and becoming agitated. I wasn’t near her, or looking at her, next thing that happened was a customer service person comes along and tells the ‘wummin’ that he is opening a new checkout, to which she retorts that he should tell ‘hur behind’

Again I am nowhere near her, I haven’t looked at her or spoken to her, and the customer service person is clearly confused and opens the checkout. I very politely redirected my basket and waited for her to go into the new queue.

I try smiling whilst not looking at her and waiting for her to move. She flings another aggressive ‘Yes I am actually’ before going into the queue. I still haven’t looked at her and give her a wide berth. She leaves, smirking as if she has achieved something. I was tempted to ask the customer service person what it was about, but he was just as confused as I was so it seemed a bit pointless.

WTF? When I made it several months ago, it attracted admiring glances and expressions of wonder, not pathological aggression from numpties. Is this what high food and electricity prices do to people?

I do not spend a lot of time in public, precisely to avoid twats like this. I am getting a bit fed up with it.

I have put up with an awful lot of monkeys flinging their poop around, it’s extremely boring.

Do better. Your poor self image has nothing to do with my artwork. Why are bullies always such fucking boring people? Is there a bullying rulebook that you all follow?

This Week

Very busy this week with a plethora of new things.

Considering throwing a very large party. Now that it is even more abundantly clear that being considerate and kind to people who don’t deserve it is not appreciated, I will do exactly what I like.

Have a lot of finishing work to do on a few things, so hopefully will get an actual day off to take care of that.

Toodle Pip.

OK so let’s Talk about Nutters

We have a screaming nutjob next door, but we don’t talk about that because she has a boyfriend, so this makes her socially up the pecking order if you also happen to be stupid, nasty and mannerless. This one suffers from what appears to be the same disorder as Bawbag, which was interesting to note. Whilst I miss Bawbag, I do not miss his disorder. I am sure he will not be at all hurt by my saying that.

This is apparently how stupid people determine who is sane and who is not. If you have a male in attendance, you are apparently entitled to make spurious comments about other people, threaten them and break the law. This nutter used to stand at the window and laugh at me maintaining my parents’ garden, and I have not seen her doing something similar for her great grandparents over the decade or so she has been camping out there.

I have single handedly managed a whole universe of situations that these people could never have managed, also funded situations that these people wouldn’t spare a penny for, and I am supposed to continuously tolerate abuse because it is much easier for the world to let it happen over and over again.

Now to be fair to the nearby nutters, my mother perpetrated quite a bit of this because she ‘didn’t like clever people,’ an opinion she revised when she found herself at the mercy of a great many stupid people who were intent on ending her life, which they succeeded in doing about six years ago.

She did apologise for what was sustained family bullying, instigated by her, and I didn’t hold it against her. I just felt sorry for her thinking that she wasn’t ‘clever.’ whatever that meant to her.

What she was was a lot more fun than I am, so indulging her meant I got to experience more stuff I wouldn’t have bothered with. I am obsessed with work, to the point that I will always select work as the preferred option, even to the point of avoiding doing more important things to do more work.

Hence, my mother got indulged, because for me work/education was the only safe place and my way of exploring the world. This is what happens when your own family continuously act against you.

Life is complicated when the person you care about most in the world hates you and you are her only means of support. All she actually achieved was making me avoid stupid people.

The family currently owe me quite a bit of money, which is a good thing because they won’t be pursuing a method of making payment. Being no contact has improved my life greatly and I am happy that it is unlikely that I will ever see them again. I do not miss them in the slightest, and I especially don’t miss their badly brought up, disordered behaviour. It would be nice to be notified once they are gone, but I don’t expect it.

It does get annoying when stupid people repeat gossip, but they don’t have anything else to do, so what can you expect?

Have a couple of interesting meetings tomorrow and later this week, hopefully work is about to get a whole lot more interesting.

For those who drop in looking for financial forecasts, there is about to be a massive dip, so invest wisely. Even the banks are panicking about this one and there are likely to be a lot of very large fines in the next few years due to the hiring policies.

For those dropping in to get an update on my huge pile of unfinished work, sorry I still haven’t been feeling it, one earlier piece took seven years to finish because I was busy trying to live, this is not unusual and usually ends up with better stuff. I did a bunch of wall covering paintings a few weeks ago, they will be coming pretty soon.
