Why are People So Damn Unhelpful!!! #3

So this post is a little out of the ordinary for me, you could almost say it is a rant! So, I’ll start from the beginning.

Myself, my sister Emily (Emmimori) and my fiance were out for a day out in Ramsgate today, and we were having a walk around town. My fiance loves looking in furniture shops so e went and had a look in the Pilgrims Hospice charity shop as they had a big furniture section at the back. I walked in there with my phone and glasses in hand and had a look around. I found these gorgeous glasses and decided to buy them so I walked over to the checkout with them and was served by an old woman who seemed quite nice.

We left the shop as they were closing soon and walked on for about 10 minutes. I went to put my sunglasses back on and it was then that I realised I didn’t have them. Were had I put them?? The case was big enough, how could I lose it!? I double checked my handbag and nothing! If it were any other pair of sunglasses I wouldn’t have minded but they were my prescription pair and cost me £90 so losing them was the last thing I wanted! I traced my steps back and realised I could have left them in the Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop so we ran back as they had already closed in hopes someone was still there.

My fiance got there first and was knocking on the glass, the woman behind the checkout was clearly ignoring him so I banged slightly harder on the window to grab her attention and signed for her to come over. She unlocked the door and I explained my missing glasses situation. All she said to me was “you didn’t leave any glasses on the desk”… That wasn’t what I had asked, I asked if they were anywhere in the store! All I was hoping for was either for her to have a quick look for me or to let me have a look and that definitely seemed like too much to ask.

She closed and locked the door and we began to walk away. It was then that I realised I couldn’t find my phone in my pocket. Slightly freaking out, I tore my bag open and it wasn’t in there either!! I had absolutely no idea what to do! I had old photos with no backups, I was logged into accounts with my card details on them and I had no idea where it was! My glasses situation was soon forgotten about.

Emily was calling my phone as we were making our way back to the amusements as that was the only other place I had been to and I was close to tears at this point. After a few calls, a man had finally picked up! Emily spoke to him for a bit and he told her where he was… The Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop. He also said there was a pair of glasses with the phone.

I was fuming! we walked back the shop and the man was waiting patiently by the door for us, he said they were by the table where I picked up the glasses from. The woman hadn’t moved from her chair, she didn’t even come over to apologise for not actually helping! I was so mad. I was close to tears, stressing, I didn’t know what to do, and it all could have been avoided if she had just been a bit more helpful. Instead she didn’t care!

I guess what I’m trying to say is, if the situation ever arises, always help those in need. My situation today wasn’t exactly the worst, I don’t actually think I’d have ever found my stuff if I hadn’t found out I’d lost it till later as the shop had already closed! But if I had the help from the woman, it would have saved a lot of worry and stress.

That’s it, rant over!! I feel much better now 🙂

P.s I also got attacked by a seagull today. It flew into my head, grabbed my hair which was in a bum and tried to fly away with it.

My Personal Highlights of 2016

If you ask random people how they feel 2016 went for them, I can guarantee you the majority of them will say it was a bad year. In some ways I can agree that it wasn’t the best as I’ve had my fair share of downfalls, but I just learned to look past them.

I feel that sometimes we can take a lot of things for granted. I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted to this year like buy my own house and make a decent amount of money, but I  would still say some amazing things happened that I will never forget.

Here are my personal highlights of 2016:

I Travelled

It was just a seven day holiday to Corfu with Kieron but it was the most amazing experience that I got to share with him. It was the week of my birthday and on that day, we took a day trip to Albania. It was one of the most beautiful places I have even seen. Over the course of the holiday Kieron went scuba diving. I’ve never done it before and was so nervous but I thoroughly enjoyed it! During a trip to the beach we also got incredibly which was hilarious as we look like a pair of lobsters. I’m so grateful that I was able to take that trip and have so many memorable experiences.

 

I Moved Out

Another highlight was that I moved out of my parents home and into a place with Kieron. I was so homesick the first few weeks and cried non stop but now I see it as a home, my home. The feeling of having my own independence is amazing! Yes, we have to pay bills now and that’s where the majority of our income goes but I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s awesome that I get to see Kieron everyday too. 🙂

I Got A New Job

I got quite ill during 2016 and so quit my job as an IT technician. I wasn’t happy there and the stress was making me feel a thousand times worse. I was out of work for a few months whilst looking for a new job with only Kieron’s income supporting us. Money got pretty tight and not once did Kieron try and push me into getting a job. It was so supportive and let me take it all at my own pace. After a few interviews I finally got a call with a job offer which I happily accepted. I now work in retail and love it!

I Became A Mrs-To-Be

Kieron and I had been talking about engagement for a while and he said he wanted it to be a surprise. So on the 5th November he picked me up for work and when I got in the car he gave me some clothes to change into (weird, right?). He drove us back to our flat and when I got inside, it was all dark. He took me to the living room I was surprised to see our families there, sitting in the candlelight! I was saying hello to everyone and when I turned around, he was down on one knee and popped the question. It was the happiest moment of my life. I really cant wait to marry Kieron and spend the rest of my life with my best friend and soul mate.

So even though I didn’t become a millionaire I still became rich. Rich with love, happiness and memories.

I didn’t get to buy my own house either, but I was given the opportunity to rent a flat and make it a home.

After all, it’s the little things that count.

Much Love,
