Sharing My World 22-03-2021

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

If not now, then when?
Monday morning, about 11:07. Or possibly the week after. I haven’t decided.

Can you describe your life in a six-word sentence?
No. Um. More words. Hatstand. Banana.

Do you remember that thing people used to say, about how you swallow eight spiders a year while you sleep? It’s not true, but do you think you’ve ever swallowed any? What bug do you think you’ve eaten the most of by accident?
Urk. Gross. There are many things where I feel I’m better off not knowing, and in fact not even thinking about. And this is one of them.

What’s the best approach to resolving conflict?
First, get right up in their face and yell at them, big time. If that doesn’t work, shiv them in the kidneys.

No, wait, that can’t be the correct answer for a public forum.

You attempt to defuse the situation by calmly talking to both sides, attempting to make them see each other’s point of view. If that doesn’t work, then and only then, shiv them in the kidneys.

I had my first COVID jab on Monday. Yay!

    That’s great! I’ve been following Covid infections and deaths in the UK for a couple of months now, and it’s wonderful to see both infections and deaths diminishing every day since vaccination started. Instead of almost 1,800 deaths a day, it’s down to 33-89. So, so happy.

      Lockdown restrictions are about to start easing from tomorrow, so we shall see…

    Do add Conflict Resolution Manager and Banana Hatstand to your CV. You will undoubtedly get a promotion!

      I like the sound of “Conflict Resolution Manager”. I’ll resolve the hell out of those conflicts 🙂

    Thanks, Alistair for Sharing Your World. A hatstand banana, eh? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of those but kudos on the quick thinking in a sticky situation… 😉 The bug question was a tad ill-advised, I’ll be more careful in the future! 😛 Congratulations on your jab, one more to go and you’re fully insured. Have a splendid week! ☺

      Yep, the first dose gets me 59-83% protection or something, apparently 🙂

    Yay for the jab!

    Nice! I got mine on the 25th! 🙂
    Ouch, my kidney!


    • March 30, 2021 at 5:09 am

      Yay, the end is in sight 🙂
      Oops, sorry about the kidney 😮

    This is why I carry a box cutter…. to “defuse” situations. Works well on unruly customers too!

      Only one pack of Puppies on a Roll per customer! Slash…
