The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


How To Not Be Depressed It’s Monday …

Yes it’s Monday.

Another long week ahead in your cubicle.

Doing work no one needs and no one appreciates.

On the production line of meaningless acts.

It’s bad isn’t it?

Really, really bad.

Worse, I am now back from my trip.

And probably/hopefully won’t be traveling anywhere for at least a few weeks.

So this blog will be back to it’s regular, daily destruction of your hope and happiness.

Well, if it’s all getting to much for you, you can at least be happy you’re not this bloke …

I get London can be busy.

I get London transport can be expensive.

But I will never get why an adult thinks this is a good idea.

Do they aspire to being Evel Knievel and this is their first step?

Do they dream of being a giant and this is how they bring their fantasy to life?

Do they hope that they can be the UK version of Officer Poncherello from CHiPS but prefer the urban pavements of Shoreditch to the freeways of LA?

I have no idea what is their rationale for it but I can tell you that when I saw him, I suddenly felt having a midlife crisis that involves affairs and buying sport cars didn’t look so stupid after all.

Look, I’m all for immaturity but this is tragic.

He should be eternally grateful that I decided to blur out his face … because frankly, it would be less embarrassing being seen coming off the back of a sheep than this.

Your monday suddenly isn’t so bad now is it?

You’re welcome.

Chicago. For the day … sorry environment.

Comment by Rob

Welcome back Rob.
Are those scooters still a big thing in England? They seem so 90s.

Comment by Pete

What am I talking about. We have them all over Calofornia except they’re motorized and you can rent them like city bicycles through an app.

Birds. Also known as the most dangerous mm ode of transport since the Boeing 737.

Comment by George

Birds are horrific … but then in California, everyone is so high on legal marijuana that if they crash, they don’t hurt themselves.

Comment by Rob

birds are insurance companies best fucking friend. charge sky high premiums and then dont pay out because its always the pricks fault.

Mean, but very amusing. It is good to have you back Robert.

Comment by Lee Hill

I saw a woman on the train today on a scooter going up and down the carriages while talking on the phone to someone. It was the worst throwback to 80’s yuppies I’ve ever seen.

Comment by Rob

British eccentricity?

Comment by Lee Hill

Are you saying that you didn’t photograph her? You photograph everybody.

Comment by John

lets hope the cops confiscated his fucking phone for 25 years.

Comment by andy@cynic

He has so many iPhones that if they steal one, he’ll have another 2 hidden somewhere. Or he’ll have them flown in on his wifi drone.

Comment by DH

Shame on you for shaming this dude. Read:

To be concerned about being > grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the > suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and > adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, > healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow.

Now that I am > fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, > including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up. > —C.S.

Comment by andy@cynic

Something tells me John Khalil is scooter child.

Comment by DH

To paraphrase Mr C. S. Lewis:

> Critics who treat “adults on scooters” as a term of approval instead of as a merely > descriptive term, are kidding themselves.

Also, C. S. Lewis wrote terrible english.
