not the best day

today i am not having a great day. i woke up to my boyfriend calling me saying he lost his keys on the way to work. i decided to go and help him look but i couldn't find them anywhere (no big suprise). THEN one of his pedals falls off his bicycle. i just bought this bicycle for him on friday for his birthday (which is later in september). how annoying! so i take it to the bicycle repair shop and they say basically the pedal and everything attached to it is a piece of crap and ruined so i better return it and get a new one. great. so i put the bike in my trunk and came home. my boyfriend had to go back to work. i had to come home because the receipt for the bike is here... and now i look on the receipt and it says no refunds or exchanges. well, i am going to blast them so hard for selling me a faulty bike. it's canadian tire too - a reputable store. not to hard core bike enthusiasts but to the general public at least! anyway, i am very hungry now - all i've eaten thus far is half a banana and i'm in the food for food. then i will take care of the bike business. i wanted to swim today but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

also i woke up having this "dream" that i was flirting with a finnish guy named helinski. now i don't know any finnish people, so how, in my dream, did i know that the name helinski was finnish? how? i just checked online and it is. i must be smarter asleep than awake. oy vey!

*laughs* I knew that because of one of the Shopaholic books...that is really sad...

That SUCKS about the bike!!! I hope they will give you a refund and not be big jerks!!!

Ugh, sorry to hear about the bike.

Amazing what we store in our brains that we have no idea is there!

Oooo! that canadian tire really chaps my ass! I've heard nothing but bad things lately! They're usually pretty good about returns though aren't they?

At least the bad day was more of your boyfriends than yours really. stay positive!

Sara said...

I hope you were able to get Cdn Tire to buck up and do something about the bike!!

You certainly were hungry:
"in the food for food!". Freudian slip for sure!

ashley said...

You are not having good luck with bikes! So sorry. I hope your day has a complete turn around.

Carolyn said...

Wowsa, what a day. You need to sit back tonight, relax, maybe have a glass of wine and just have some "you" time.

Good luck with the bike exchange. Give em hell!

Ps Your dream completely made me crack up. Helinski?

the bike thing, sucks but the dream thing, well it makes me chuckle for many reasons ;0)

What a crappy start to the day and like they say, when it rains..it pours! Hope the rest of your day went a little bit better.

That's funny about the dream. I always wish I was as smart in my conscious time as I can be when sound asleep.

Cdn Tire is the WORST lately in this town, they have gone way downhill! That is funny about the Finnish thing - Helsinki is the capital of Finland - maybe it was a play on that??

jen: i've read those books - maybe that's how it got into my subconscious!

sara: food for food - no kidding!

erin: it could be that too, although if you asked me while awake what the capital of Finland is, i'm sure i wouldn't know!
