Tales From The Shelter – 38
Strange occurence….when I was at a shelter in North Vancouver, it was a low barrier one. That means that active addicts can stay there. Having lived on a small island for the last 25 years and not being an addict, I had a big ‘mark’ written on my forehead. I got ripped off for my laptop, iphone and a few other goodies.
I put my healing abilities to work as there was a guy there (a junkie/crackhead) who took a maltov cocktail and had 3rd degree burns all over his face and hands. He’s got the gift of the gab and it wasn’t long before I handed my stuff over to him on the premise of his ‘mac expert’ friend tweaking my computer….all as a favour because i kept his face from being scarred and took away the pain there and on his hands.
What a fucking dummy I was. The guy came up with some cock and bull story about how his friend’s place got raided by the police because him and a few other buddies hacked into Microsoft. I should have known right there, but I didn’t.
That was last year and this week I was contacted on facebook by my dear friend the rip off artist. He talked about how he wanted to make things up to me , blah blah blah, and had a macbook pro and iphone 4 for me. I said I’d prefer the cash so he said he’d sell them then make up the rest he owed on monthly payments.
He wanted to meet and I was curious enough to do so. I mean, why a year later, when he still won’t fess up to having outright stolen my goods? Better yet, he turned it around and talked about how bad he felt when I told him I never want to talk to him again. The nerve!
Met we did and it was fine. My sources who know him says he’s not clean, even though he proclaims to be for over 6 months. My sources still maintain he took the maltove cocktail because he’s a pedophile, while he still maintains it was meant for his landlord. My sources are crackheads so there’s no telling who’s lying or not. At any rate, we shall see what happens.
I went to a Halloween party last night at an organization I volunteer for. I figured it would be a good way to meet people. Boy was it cliquey!!!!
This morning the janitor found 3 wine bottles in the garbage room and we’re waiting for the shit to hit the fan. We figure it’s Stinky Lady, just because, and she’s moving out in a few days (yes! there is a gawd!). I hope it is her and it goes against her record because I can think of a lot better people to become Canadians rather then her.
Teletubby 1 moves out tomorrow…..yessssssssssssss!!!!!!!
Haha, Gordon Campbell is trying everything to raise his abysmal 9% show in the polls. I have a song for him, “Desperado, you better come to your senses”. The first hint was the Fraser Institute’s study on Premiers managing economics , and Campbell was numero uno. HA! More like he’s best at hiding stuff.
Campbell’s speech was a desperate attempt at defending the HST (His Sorry Testicles) and giving a tax break to the middle and lower classes. Harumph, what’s that going to do…somehow it’s supposed to revitalize the economy but don’t ya think, like don’t ya really think people are going to tend to save more because they don’t want to spend their tax saved dollars on the HST??????????????????????????????????????????????
Lord, love a duck, his boat is sinking. Let’s face it, he’ll do everything he can to bring his numbers up then resign and hire himself out as an olympic consultant and make way more money then what he gets as premier. Oh, and let’s not forget the lecture circuit on fiscal responsibility…..HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!
