Mr Grumpy stays positive

Today, I thought I would stay positive, so I tried to ignore:

- The neighbours who can't help but slam the doors of their car at 5.30 a.m., depriving me of a precious 15 extra minute-sleep.
- The pillock who lets his dog run free in the morning and shit all over the common green.
- The door in the middle of the bus that the driver would not open and therefore I had to step in at the front of the bus...I did give a big "bonjour" and a big smile, because it is all about being positive, right?
- The dickhead on his motorbike who overtook the bus in a dangerous bend while a car arrived in the opposite direction, forcing the bus to brake suddenly and sending half the passengers flying.
- The pain in the arse parents at work who keep sending emails when their little (12 year-old, for f**** sake!) has only been back 3 days at school (yesterday was Bank Holiday in Geneva).
- The fact that Geneva Public Transport system advertise their "Pay by text" scheme on a ridiculously wee poster placed completely above eye and even head level, so that you can only see it if you're actually on the bus.
- People who try and jump the queue at the canteen at work (over my dead body!)
- The avocado in my mixed salad had turned brown and the tuna was dry as hay.
- Oops, another email from same parents! Ignore and smile.
- The colleague who has not read the minutes of the meeting and as a result left me with two extra hours of work today because she screwed up big way and as her boss I have to pick up the pieces.
- The neighbour's kid who at 6 screams and does tantrums including kicking the common door when really the only kick should be in the arse by her parents.

... but it is bloody hard!!!
