Bukowski Rant . . . .

Posted by Neal on May 26, 2009, at 19:21:25

It's not the big things anymore, its a collection of small things . . .

Now me, I'd like to *** the bank person who "forgot" to order my checks, leaving me with no way to pay the rent. What do you do about the ordinary little everyday sh** that sucks you dry. It's like the writer Charles Bukowski said, it's not the big things, it's the shoelace breaking in the morning, together with the guy who won't let you change lanes, need I go on?

I'd like to say what I wanted to do with that bank, but I won't, cause the sheriff would get me, and this ain't the place.

Hi Neal,

Jailtime isn't worth it, they'll take those broken bits of shoe lace you carefully tie together away from you.

Like Charles Bukowski, I never learned to sweat the smallstuff, so when the milk is spoiled and I step in cat puke on the way to dump it down the sink, the day goes further to hell from there.

I am sending one extra hard cyber slap to the banker's head.

Poet

There's always cash, money order, cashiers check to pay the rent. But it sounds like that's not the issue.


For me, when little stuff makes me lose my mind that usually means that there is something bigger that's bothering me, but I'm avoiding it. Pushing it out of my consciousness.

To me the little stuff piles up and bingo you have big stuff and then it spirals out of control. And I don't like banks as they have your money. Once years ago had the money for two new cars and needed it then in cashiers check and had all identification. They didn't believe I was me and had to notify the bank the account was opened with and it was l5 minutes away. Back in CT. I did get the check in time. But several times since I've taken my money out put in a safe tiny one and hidden it. Interest rates are horrible why should the banks have what little I now have? Phillipa ps then the government also knows and taxes. I should take it out again. See this post is spiraling out of control and that's my anxiety.

today I started yelling at my computer because it wouldn't do what I wanted it to. It's the "little" frustrations I think that remind me of the big frustrations, when I'm up to my eyeballs already, they are just what it take to make me scream ENOUGH!

The big thing is that I'm moving. Everything is jumbled around in boxes and it's never-ending work and hasseling. It a miserable experience that I hate.
