Hi girls,Just having a vent!
As most of you know i am a nurse and work in a big hospital.It still never ceases to amaze me the people we have out on our roads and why they just dont get it!!!
I did not do nursing to look after drink drivers on their P plates hooning at 160km on the wrong side of the road at 4am smashing into innocent drivers.Yet,every weekend we get plenty in and last weekend was no different.And seeing their parents reactions its no wonder these guys are doing this sort of behaviour.Consistently it is the same 3 ethnic backgrounds,mama comes in and oh my poor boy,he's a good boy really!!! And then the clincher at talking about the written off hotted up monara,dont worry,we'll buy you a new one!!!! Great,get teh idiot back on the road in a hotted up hoon mobile.
HELLO !!!! How about a kick up the backside,take his keys off him,cut off his money and dont buy him a new high powered car to go out and do the same thing over again,only to kill himself and his mates next time!Makes my blood boil,so many of these parents are in denial about what their precious hoons are up to on a Saturday night drag racing.I tell you what,if these were my kids,their backsides would not sit down for a week and they would not be driving cars that i had paid for and continued to fund.And what gets even better,is if it is a stolen car and they are chased by the police and crash,well its the police's fault,not their precious good boy son!!!!No wonder these kids turn out feral,its because they have been allowed to.
And we have to share the road with them,me,my family,friends and kids.We are the poor innocent cars who they crash into and think it is all a joke.And go out and do it time and time again.
And us nurses are the ones who have to listen to them whine when in hospital how they cant go out for cigarettes because they are in traction stuck in bed.And usually put up with constant abuse from them.
Sorry for the rant,but i am sick and tired of drink drivers and driving under the influence of drugs.I didnt do nursing to look after stupid people.I have all the time in the world for my patients,but people who CHOOSE to drive whilst extremely drunk and kill all their mates and others on the roads,well my sympathy is lacking.
Anyway,on a happier note,had a fabulous day yesterday for melbourne cup,had a bbq at a friends house and spent a day with great company!
Been busy getting in early for christmas shopping and pressie making and hope to be organised!My rearranged dining room is looking great,but still madly decluttering!I have been ruthless and listed a lot of bits and pieces on ebay,hopefully i wont change my mind! But it is nice not to have it sitting around!
On a sad note i have killed off Daisy's 4th fish this month,jimmy junior.Dont know what i am doing,but they keep carking it!Bok Choy,Fishy junior and Fanta have all died of unknown causes!!! Maybe my paint fumes are wafting in? Oh well,the cat enjoyed them! Only joking..........they were suitably buried down the toilet.
Had a good weekend at the markets,found lots of treasures and i have also been able to source some mini lamp shades that i have been after for a while! My curtain tie back pins arrived today after waiting 6 weeks and look great! Well 4 anyway,my hubby's friend Pete decided to help and make the hole bigger for the pins and two split in half!!! AAgghhh,hopefully i can glue them back together!I think it was payback for giving him the flu 2 weeks ago!
Anyway,better go and cook some dinner and will try and read some blogs! I'll put up a few pics of new stuff and ebay listings for the week!
have a great week everyone!
ciao for now,lesley : )
