This cheered me up..

If it wasn't for my bad luck, i'd have no luck at all.. so it was quite reassuring to see this and discover that worse things happen to others:

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

That's probably why British soaps are so popular despite getting more and more miserable story lines.

My favourite thing to say when things go wrong is "Could be worse", cos it's true, n matter how bad things get, it could be worse... Smiley

I once overheard a couple of ladies of a certain age discussing the weather, and one of them said, "Well, I suppose it's better than no weather at all."  I bet there is money to be made by starting a collection for people in countries that are so poor that they can't afford weather for their inhabitants.

I'm that poor I can't even pay attention.  Sad

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Thanks for that 7up - it gave me a good laugh.

 

But I agree there are always things that could be worse.

Re: This cheered me up..

I remember a few years ago at work. Nothing went right from the minute I clocked in. I said to my boss.."I think things are going to get worse". My boss said .."Nonsense, think positive". As quick as a flash I replied "Ok, I'm positive things are going to get worse"  He left me alone for the rest of the day
