The thing is, comedy sketch shows are usually funny, at least in places. Unfortunately, mine just seems to be a relentless string of unfunny situations. An unfunny situation can be dealt with, and we all often do, in a way that we can see the funny side in the end. I think I'm past this point.
I've really not been having much luck recently. In fact, I'm sure some divine force is strictly against me and its definitely not me who's laughing. Yesterday I spent most of the day feeling sorry for myself, catching up with my old friends and filling them in on my pathetic life. Today, I felt much better about things and tried to sort a few things out. So, in need of some ID since my driving license is to be taken from me due to medical reasons, I look on the internet and find a thing called a citizencard. They need a referee to make say that yes, my date of birth is correct blah blah, so i give them my doctor's address. No problem. Then I ring up the doctor to tell them to expect to be contacted, and low and behold...my doctor will charge me for verifying that my date of birth that I gave is indeed correct. How disgusting is that?! This is the same doctor who told me that they would charge £120 for looking at my medical notes in order to tell a future employer that I was fit to work. You can imagine my response to that one! (I saw a locum doctor in the end who simply stamped my page happily and said 'have a good trip'.) haha.
I guess there will always be people who want to profit from someone else's misfortune, but this time I can say that my life is turning into a joke.
