I find it deeply disheartening.
I go to the trouble of imparting my wisdom of the ages, day after day for your enlightenment and guidance. Here is the voice of experience – the result of a lifetime of trial and error – and do you listen?
I have discovered to my amazement that not everyone reads this site. I would have thought that after three and a half years of writing
shite invaluable wisdom, it would be the first port of call for everyone on the planet, but apparently not. If you don’t read this site, then it’s your loss. But then if you don’t read this site, then you won’t know I have told you that it’s your loss. See now what you are missing?
A mere week ago I wrote about the dangers of over reliance on satellite navigation systems. It was very sound piece, based on at lest five minutes research that was a salutary warning to all would be travellers. Apparently there were some idiots out there who didn’t read the piece.
A television crew from Sky had to be rescued when their Sat Nav sent them through mountain passes and into a 4ft snow drift.
They ended up stuck in deep snow and tried to dig themselves out but ended up alerting gardai about 5pm. The mountain rescue team was called in and within an hour had located the Sky crew. It took two hours to rescue them.
You would think that a meeja crew would have the sense to read my site? They, who couldn’t be arsed to read the definitive authority on all things life related call themselves media savvy? Fucking idiots. They should have been left there to freeze.
Now, if they had read my site, they would have known better than to rely on a SatNav to find their way through the mountains.
There again, if they had read my site, they would have known better than to ask directions from an old fella with a beard and pipe in the first place.
