Yesterday I bought some clothing as I don't seem to be able to locate where shirts, socks and stuff have gone. They seem to have disappeared down a black hole.
I also had a reconciliation meeting with my "jobnetwork member" otherwise known as Anh (pronounced Agghhh..) where it was asked "how we can help you? when what she meant was "Are you a dole bludging bastard earning money on the quiet. If you are I can dob you in and earn brownie points.."
I explained that I couldn't be helped at the present time.
I had a haircut which while not quite short back and sides is "presentable". I have to bone up on "conservative politics" however which I am told is the second requisite for success in life.
This morning I had a worrisome tooth fixed ($180) which I should have had fixed two years ago. That makes me feel better.
The dialogue between the dentist and the dental assistant was on the nature of their work...
"Look I can understand your stress" he said noting that his assistant was being looked down on for being "only a dental assistant".
"People don't understand the stress that's involved and to be quite frank I need a female who's compassionate with patients as the patient usually looks to the dental assistant for emotional support. It's no good getting a bloke for the job. None of them understand the emotional support aspects of being a dental assistant and to be quite honest I'm hopeless at that stuff. It's in with the drill and carve out the molars."
I screamed quietly. He told me to shut up...
Converted University of New England Powerpoint slides to .pdf and printed them off in Black and White for revision purposes and for the exam on Novmber 22nd.
I have one "free day" and then what should be a two month contract.
