comforablty numb and work

Friday night has passed and we had an export pack to do for China with the lobster. I have not laughed so mouch for the whole week. A strong drinking culture just provides so much opportunity fot happiness.

I have not been drinking for over three months now for no reason except boredom with it. As I tend to be just barely under control at the bst of times haveing a few beers kicks my trbo charger in and the pace I go at is fast. Sober I am just a litle more sedate. It must be disconcerting for my bosses and workmates when like last night thet tiurned up totally pissed and I was there sober.

We should have had disabled parking compulsory last night and wheelchairs available, they were totally fucked up. I did what any kind considerate caring person would do and was totally merciless and took the piss out of them.

I did have a fleeting moment of sympathy when as they staggered in and they remembered I was at work too and their faces went a funny grey colour but it passed quickly (the sympathy). I am a great believer in having fun. I explained several times to the boss no.2 that what he was writing on the packing sheets did not have to be in cantonese just because the lobster were going to china. I did suggest that maybe the pen he was using was language challenged and could not write properly and decipher drunkenese either.

Storeman no. 1 is a short bowling ball shape so reaching high places is a challenge for him at the best of times. A crucial part of his job on these nights is to wrap the sealing tape around the boxes and lids to keep the live lobster in a cool environment during the flight. I think he had an attack of alziehmers last night and forgot that the reason the tape is sticky on one side is so he does not have to tie knots in it to keep the tape on the box.

I have always though that short people with their lower centre of gravity were able to keep on their feet better in adverse conditions?! Apparently boss no. 1 did not think this last night when he finally fell in the door half an hour after everyone else. It must have been the view he had from a different perspective of being on his knees. After regaining his 'composure' and sort of standing erect he grabbed a spool of packing tape and began to stabilise storeman no. 1 with it. At least he did not put knots in it so unstabilising him was not too hard after boss no. 1 finished his efforts and wandered off to find a wall to talk too!

Packer no. 4 was quiet during all of this although he did manage to speak some fluent gibberish and gobbldegook on arriving. The gist of it being something about his knees were not working and he could not feel his feet. I am surmising this (I am not fluent in gibberish and gobbledegook when sober) because not long after arriving he fell over. It was lucky that he fell into the bin full of insulating straw which took some doing because first he had to climb onto a table to fall in there.

I think those lobster last night will be glad to see the end of Australia as they are flying to china enjoying the in flight movie and the dinner invitation waiting for them on arrival.

Keith tempting as it sounds I am sure the Chinese would not be impressed with the barbarian invasion. We have just began to negotiate a free trade agreement and I think no i am sure that the arrival of the crew would end any possible progress. these guys have gone on 'adventures' together b4, Big Game Fishing,. Motor Racing, International Business Trips, and Football Matches, I think that they have matured now, fucking NOT! I would not be able to face myself for causing a train wreck of their proportions, (I am a terrible liar at times)

Wyvern I am not sarcastic the fact I am not at work today has nothing to do with my football team losing yesterday either. Oh I forgot the new 'adventure' at work, Owning and breeding racehorses, plus the fact that one is good too. This has created havoc as well due to the fact that customers (in their ignorance admittedly) have the audacity to expect service when we are watching the direct telecast of races on the office sattelite tv link to the racing channel. This has also caused some 'un-cordinated' efforts late at night when trying to process delivery of lobster to China after a winning run. 'Pirates Jeurney' is currently being spelled to prevent liver and kidney malfunction of the owners prior to the spring racing season.
