Remember my post a week or so ago about how the setup for the Super Sale was a complete fucking nightmare? And that I couldn’t so much as put a piece of card in a bookshelf correctly? Well my friends, it has happened again.
Let’s rewind back to Wednesday. Twas a sunny, warm day. The birds were singing, children laughing and there I was, slogging away at designing a new display.
All of this, plus a bit more had to be moved onto the wall. THE WALL. Christ, it even sounds scary. So I spent TWO DAYS of my life that I’ll never get back putting shelving on a wall and moving items from the old shelf to the new shelf.
I was pretty proud of my work. Put loads of thought into it. Then today happened. I arrive at work all chipper to see my finished display when I noticed it looked like this:
What the actual FUCK has gone on here?! Not only do I find this God-all-mighty mess but also that a good chunk of it has been moved into clearance. CLEARANCE! NO! YOU DO NOT PUT BEAUTIFUL STATIONERY IN CLEARANCE!
I know I shouldn’t take it personally, but when you spend two days designing a display with no help, then someone comes along and fucks it right up, then yeah – I’m going to be a bit pissed.
Just have to keep reminding myself that it’s all for the greater good of writing a book and getting it published.
