Pissing on the Petrol hike

As a little girl I used to believe that when there was a thunderstorm, God was angry. The thunder was him shouting at us and the rain was his tears. Well tonight, He was furious! :-)

The rain was insane and you know that loud, jump-out-of-your-skin thunder? Well I have never heard anything like this before. That loud scary thunder was bursting out in 20 second intervals. It was unbelievable. It felt like it went on forever.
All of this was carrying on while I was trying to catch a few Zzzz's before the graveyard shift this morning. Just as I fell asleep, BANG! I nearly shat myself.
We've taught our boy (our amazing dog) to bark at thunder and loud bangs, so that he is never scared of loud noises. Well I thought he was going to hyperventilate! He was going beserk. Poor thing!
I am also severly pissed about the petrol price hike. Holy shit! We're now paying over R8 for 1 litre of petrol. Um...it's all good and well to increase the price, but my salary doesn't get raised does it?
Let's be honest. Car pools (great in essence) but very unpractical.
I'd like to see a mate of mine take me to work at midnight and fetch me at 5am. Ha!
I was on empty this afternoon but I took one look at those petrol station queues yesterday evening and decided I'd wake up a little earlier to get to a station before midnight. Ha again!
Blondie here arrived at 00h06. Charming.

I have a friend who is deathly afraid of thunder and lightning. As old as she is, she crawls up into the fetal position and sings herself to sleep. its really frightening when your on a open empty valley in an elevated thatched roof shelter, in lighting, thunder, and rain, with a friend screaming and shaking at each bang...

...your poor dog.

Don't believe a word I write said...

A very good friend indeed will schlepp you to work at midnight and home again at 5AM....and then only once!

What is it you do, exactly? And where?
