Bad Day

This has not been my most productive day. I have spent almost all my time at work playing with a computer, trying to work out why the damn thing doesn’t work.

It was typical. I had nothing to do, and made the mistake of asking my supervisor for something new. Cue MechEnger, the mechanical engineering student from my university, to sit down to test the computer I’d been working with before, and have it break on him.


This rendered the entire system useless until it’s fixed.


And it still isn’t fixed. I have to try some new things tomorrow, in the desperate hope I’ll sort it out.

Oh yeah, and my cold, which I thought I’d got rid of a week ago, seems to have come back with a vengeance.


It’s like the dreaded ‘q’ word. Anyone medical out there will have heard of it. As soon as anyone says that word, you can guarantee all hell will break loose.

I know what I won’t be saying any time soon.

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
