Have moved living room around so new chair will fit. Means old chair is stuck in a corner where it cannot recline, which turns out to be pretty uncomfortable. Plus it's at right angles to the TV and my laptop only reaches if I'm very careful. Have already pulled the plug board enough to knock stuff off the shelves. Will have to find mobile phone and charger again later.

Chair was supposed to arrive today. Chair did not arrive. Probably I will have to go and collect chair tomorrow. Which will mean having no room for food shopping. Am short of food.

Today: Fired.

I was trying to understand (again) how some people seem to believe that becoming employed is just a question of trying. It is puzzling because there are more people needing jobs than there are jobs available, and some of the jobs available go to people who already have a job, so there's a lot of people chasing any given job. It seems pretty obvious that trying is not sufficient when there are no jobs.

But the people with the positive thinking keep trying attitude, they have experienced getting a job or seen a person get a job, and it was simples, someone tried until they got a job. That's a lot more vivid than numbers. So to them that is the real thing, because experience.

It just doesn't work when you multiply it up.
