To stop the rain : Poem

Sometimes i cry like a drain flowing to main sewer in a heavy rain,
sometimes i bounce back again,
there's sunshine, there's rain,
how they happen both again and again....
Theres things that stop me flushing away the hope of another day
and more of the sunshine.
The heavy rain its heavy rain again and again
its never not coming back.
 Theres one thing could help An umbrella of ..... what would do it and stop the cycling brain and minimise the rain?
Some know what that is
others think nothing of it
ignored , abhorred and distanced to maintain persistance
there must be distance
 All to stop the rain

The one Where i turned down training someone's dog.

Was asked to help train ( by help , they meant train ) a dog thats a bit untrained so to speak. For nowt. I carefully considered that , and asked questions as well. And i tested the person as to whether they would listen, copy, and do what i was to be suggesting, which isnt draconian, military or a la barbara woodhouse malarkey.... i doubted they would emulate, or even try.... the simples stuff i was gonna get dog sorted with. So rather than confuse the dog i said to person that unless they would stick to what i was gonna say/ do... and that means all in their house as well... AND commit to three determined walks a day as well, i wasnt gonna do it for them. See going to a "space" or "Outside" with a dog , although people often THINK thats mostly the key, the key does start with what i describe as Determined Walks. That doesnt mean having a sniper dog (thats one sniffing everything and zoomng about all the time--- Thats allowable when *you* decide) you have to have the determined controlled walk as a core. And build from that. Without that , in my experience , other stuff can wait. Apart from the housebreaking? Which funny enough IS solved with DETERMINED WALKS . Theres lots of crossover bits and bobs to this. But i dont think the person would "be up for" the fix they wanted/ indicated they wanted. And certainly and often its Owners that need the training MORE THAN THE DOG.
However , im not an "expert" per se, although i seriously do know what im doing

Bank stuffs

Okay Bank stuff. They said in email if you dont want the new card to go to branch for collection ring us and we'll change it....

Hmmm that didnt work well . Rang.....

Send it to my house....
Cant its on its way to branch...
Cancel that one, send me new one .....
Cant that'd cancel your not yet expired one too....
How long for?
5-7 days if sent to home.....
So why is it 2-3 days to branch?
Dont know......
Yes i cant tell you
So why the email instructions? ......
Well cant you cancel an issue number? (last two digits after account numbr not card number)
No, thatd cancel the one you already have as well....
Dont know.
Can you change future not to be sent to branch?
Hold on....
(5 minutes hold)
Yes ive done that for you....

What the fuck, and why the fuck is the ring us we'll change it , but then "Cant its on its way to branch..." when i ring when I GET THE EMAIL that says i can change it with no bother?

UPDATE: First call was incorrect info given to me. Couple of emails, and They then phoned two days later to say they themselves not the branch could send another duplicate of one sent to branch and branch will destroy one they have and that the existing one WOULDNT stop in the process. Arse about elbow.

Further UPDATE: They said in fridays call existing card wouldnt be stopped. But it was. As per first call. so now gotta wait to get the new one. which is shite. thatt "5-7 days - usually sooner"
All becuse an email instruction said it would be No Problem. well now there bloody is.
(explanation went to use the card *DECLINED* and thats cos call 2 said they could do something that the email said they could do , and yet call one was actually correct. so i now gotta wait for new card before i can do anything AT ALL )
probably means on tuesday when i have to pay a few things out , i wont be able to. as card is defunct until i get new one.
Cant use paypal in a IRL shop either . And stuff gotta pay out , no paypal, also --- 3 quid left on electric, so that card better hurry up and be here quick . Shambolic.
They called again. I failed the last security question as i couldnt remember last cash withdrawal from ATM as they vary... mostly i use card in shop. so they went all circular and said to answer your Unfreeze question go to branch. Which is what this was all about where i didnt wanna go branch in first place JUST wanted a card sent to my home, not branch. See how this works? they arent admitting their email was wrong in the first place? They said it was simple. it certainly isnt.
essentially im being steamrollered into accepting their error without consideration to my simple request.
So the new card better get here quick then. 5-7 days from friday is their standard quote but it was added, often quicker than that. but on standard thats me under forced destitution, because i was told the existing wouldnt be stopped until new was activated. "It'll still work" exact words. Very angry at moment and wont rant further. but ...

Unless card arrives and is active soon Right okay . The whole thing started not to got to branch. They asked a question i couldnt remember. i might have HAVE to go to branch . What a fuck up . Ongoing issue i'd passed the questions twice already on this. They are being obtuse.

Poem : They did, but didnt, but did

I did a poem they said they understood
i did art they said buy they would
They didnt, and didnt
But what they did didnt
match the aim and caused a schism
They used instead
A thread
Of use brain, and drain
Without reinforcement
and what they meant
was, and is a division
of soul between
realisation and possibleism
From one place where both exists
But given no grace
for all that that can be
and should .
The users ,
and may i say abusers
Of my worth,
May i say forth...
Making my soul into a piece of wood .

Doesnt spam email get bored ?

Heres a spam email i got.

Dont they get bored? I know, its send out shit loads hoping someone falls for it, but the ludicrous nature of some (Like this) makes me wonder why they even bother sometimes. Yeah, its a numbers game for them .

This'll probably make you go O mi life, or pee yourself laughing....

"Good Day,

Please get back to me very quickly for a detailed brief on an ongoing plot to steal your ATM CARD. I do not know your reason for not claiming this ATM CARD before now. My Boss the Director General of Debt Management Office (DMO) is on leave and the person who is his deputy is trying to send your ATM CARD to another beneficiary in Indonesia, I heard him speaking to the person on the telephone about sending some ATM CARD to him for him to withdraw the money and invest on his behalf in Indonesia.

When I heard their conversation, I decided to see what I can do to assist you so that your card will not be among the ATM CARD he will steal with the PIN and send to Indonesia, So I quickly went into his office when he went on break and remove the envelope containing your ATM CARD with the PIN. I have made arrangement to send the card to you and it will cost you the sum of $380.00. I want you to send out this amount immediately to avoid loosing your ATM CARD.

Also confirm your full name, direct telephone number and your receiver's address to avoid any mistake. I am waiting for your urgent reply to this email now. Do not respond to this message if you are not ready to pay $380 for sending of the ATM CARD to you.

Mr. Neil Olgia"
