Good Evening from Philadelphia....
So last week I was scheduled for a doctor's appointment where I ended up missing this appointment because I lost track of time & I'm dependent upon public transit to get back-&-forth.
There was some rail-work being done on the 100-Trolley & while they had ZERO STOPPAGE going UP TO NORRISTOWN...?
That wasn't the case when it was time to return back to Philadelphia.
This is of course where I got held up & ultimately ended up being too late for My Appointment, because of the pandemic & the virtual-visits of the office I normally go to, for scheduled walk-in visits...?
You can't be anywhere near as late as I was, a whole 30-minutes, where the doctors then get back to doing their virtual-visit calls to patients.
Up until that point?
Even as I sat on the trolley-tracks waiting to get back to 69th-street...?
I didn't have My Laptop on Me.
Nor do I have a wristwatch, which, for someone of My Age?
I should know better.
Especially if I'm NOT going to have My Laptop with Me, which means, NO ABILITY TO KEEP TRACK OF TIME.
I couldn't have done anything anyway BY THAT POINT, because it wasn't like I could FORCE THEM TO LET ME OFF THE TROLLEY SO I CAN THEN WALK ALONG THE TRACKS, however...?
Had I have had My Laptop or ANY OTHER PIECE OF TIME-KEEPING EQUIPMENT...?
Then I wouldn't have gotten on the 100 in the first place & I would have KNOWN IT WASN'T GONNA BE POSSIBLE FOR ME TO GET BACK IN IF ANYTHING WENT WRONG, which, when dealing with public-transit, is something THAT MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR, NOW!?
You're probably like "Fuck does any of this have to do wit
It has everything to do with WHY I FINALLY REPLACED MY OLD CELLPHONE & FINALLY HAVE A NEW ONE!!!!!!
As long-time readers know & remember!?
I had a Samsung Galaxy S9 back in 2018 & I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THAT CELLPHONE. BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE SHIT I COULD DO WITH IT FOR WE3-WORK WHILE I WAS AT THE DAYJOB!!!!!!
To say that I was angry with having to part with it IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT, BUT...!?
I'd gone on ahead & fucked around, EVEN THOUGH I SWORE I'D TAKEN PROPER PRECAUTIONS, but...?
I don't know how ANY OF YOU AS MEN HAVE YOUR CELLPHONES IN ANYBODY ELSE'S NAME BUT YOUR OWN.
I don't give a fuck who the other person is.
And in THIS CASE...?
Where long-time friends of mine know, in THIS CASE.
It was My Mother.
Which is a disaster and mistake that I did not AND COULD NOT ALLOW TO STAND.
The FUNNY THING WAS that I'd SPECIFICALLY STATED TO HER REPEATEDLY NOT TO GO TO ANY CELLPHONE-STORE WITHOUT TELLING ME & THEN THE TWO OF US WOULD GO & THEN GET OUR PHONES, not HER PHONE.
MY OWN PHONE.
UNDER MY OWN CONTRACT.
AND HER OWN PHONE.
UNDER HER OWN CONTRACT!
Note the words I just used.
Having ANY KIND OF CONTRACT?
IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY.
And of course I was sick the Weekend My Mother pulled this stunt.
Where she INTENTIONALLY RAN DOWN TO DELAWARE & THEN CALLED ME UP TALKING ABOUT HOW SHE WAS AT THE CELLPHONE STORE & WHAT DO I WANT ON MY CELLPHONE...!?
Mind YOU I'M LITERALLY SICK AS A DOG & HOPPED UP ON DRUGS BUT MY FIRST WORDS WERE "I TOLD U NOT 2 GO TO THE STORE WITHOUT ME!!!!!"
I need to TIE-IN THE FACT THAT I DO NOT HAVE A CAR EITHER.
Which I NEED TO REPLACE AS WELL!
Especially with My Son LIVING OUT IN WHITE-SUBURBIA, never mind that I need to GET HIM A CAR AS WELL.
My Dumb-Ass, even though I know FULL-WELL that My Mother is MCU-Loki.
I went on ahead & LOST TRACK OF WHY EXACTLY I DIDN'T WANT HER GOING TO THE STORE BY HERSELF, where another key factor WAS THE FACT THAT SHE HAS THE WORD SUCKER IN NEON-LIGHTS!!!!!!
PLASTERED ACROSS HER FOREHEAD!!!!!
So the Salesmen IS GONNA ROB HER BLIND TO BEGIN WITH!
In the End?
She brings Me My Phone that Monday morning while I'm at My Guard-Shack, so, since that Dayjob is now gone.
During the 2018-year I'd already been a Security Guard for 2-years.
And the Guard-Shack at My Assigned Post WAS DAMN NEAR LITERALLY MINE AS IF I LIVED THERE & OWNED THE PLACE. So if you go back to My 2017, 2018 & 2019-postings...!?
This was MY DAYJOB OF THE TIME.
And BECAUSE I LITERALLY HAD MY OWN POST, My Guard-Shack.
Everyone who came through TO DROP FREIGHT & REPORT TO WORK KNEW FULL-WELL THAT MY GUARD-SHACK ALWAYS HAD ARTWORK & INKS & MARKERS & WHATEVER ELSE!
And they ALL KNEW it was only going to be a matter of time BEFORE I EVENTUALLY LEFT FROM THERE.
What mattered MOST TO THEM, just like with My Current Dayjob...?
Is that THE DAYJOB-RESPONSIBILITIES ALWAYS COME FIRST.
Allowed Me to REALLY START POSTING DAILY & CONTINUOUSLY!!!!!
THE CONTRACT & THE FEATURES ON THE PHONE WEREN'T WHERE I NEEDED THEM.
I then found everybody was UNWILLING to redo the Contract TO PUT MY CELLPHONE IN MY NAME, and I'm not gonna get into WHY THAT WAS, at least, NOT RIGHT NOW.
Needless to say...?
Is My Mom.
And it didn't take long for Her to REMIND ME OF THAT.
So I was PAYING ON CELLPHONE THAT SHE WAS MAKING IT CRYSTAL-CLEAR THAT SHE INTENDED TO SNATCH FROM ME ONCE THE LAST PAYMENT WAS MADE ON IT BECAUSE THE CONTRACT FOR IT WAS IN HER NAME!!!!!
I gave her the phone back.
Which she wasn't happy about.
And neither was I, but...?
Once she showed Me?
...That she was up to her ole tricks again...?
I was NOT.
Going to pretend like the reason why I've had to fight my way up from outta Hell wasn't directly tied to her & what SHE'D DECIDED TO DO, way back when, no.
There was NO WAY.
I was gonna keep that phone.
WITH IT IN HER NAME.
This kind of stupidity ON MY PART.
Has caused ENOUGH DAMAGE for Me AND MY SON.
I gave it back.
Because this is about ME.
Getting BACK TO WHAT I KNOW.
And that's OWNERSHIP.
This new cellphone may seem like a "small thing".
But it is yet another sign of things to come....
