Hi there just a quick one this week. I'd just like to say to DR. S. at the St Richards hospital. You are a real arsehole. I played extra time for you and I broke the golden rule. I didn't ask you for money up front. I wonder what would have happened if I didn't ask for the main fee upfront? Would you have shafted me over that as well? Probably but we'll never know. Sometimes I'm too trusting but I'm not a total bloody moron! Interesting subject is money and payment. Right now a mate of mine is trying to get money out of a certain hotel in Brighton for a number of Christmas functions, one of which I did for him myself. This hotel chain is owned by a multi millionare from what I am told and has a pretentious variation on the word "blue" in it's title/brand name. The payment has been politely asked for, invoiced, politely asked for and subsiquently ignored and ignored and ignored. It's now at the court stage and they are theatening an order to shut down the business or some such "seemingly out of proportion, but necessary to solve the problem" thing.
Just think how much better this world would be if everyone, business and private actually paid their bills on time! Yes it's mad, it's crazy and it seems like a new and radical idea doesn't it? No not really. Bills are my first priority. If you make extra money. Pay the bills first. Peace of mind is priceless. Carribean holidays are nice if there's enough left over. If not, you have more time than you think. Make the extra money. Don't borrow unless it's an emergency. Debt and late payment are the scurge of the modern age, along with drugs and fake mental disorders - To sell more drugs of course. Anyway, I digress. Tight bastards are not exclusively rich. There are poor tight bastards and rich tight bastards. It's not a good measuring stick. At least poor tight bastards have some justification for holding onto their precious lolly (there's a word from the past). Rich tight bastards or even slightly rich tight bastard doctors have no justification. If you deliver a great product (which everyone else agreed that I did) then you should have fair exchange for it and if that doesn't sound fair it's a good sign of insanity. So there you are Doctor S. You're not just a tight slightly rich bastard but you're a fruit cake too with a genuine mental disorder. I'd just like to finish this bit by saying thank you to the other doctor who promised to sort out payment the next day and then never called. You guys are an inspiration to us all.
In complete contrast I would like to say a big thankyou to Wendy and family with the After eight club for a great comedy relief night on the Friday 18th March where we raised around £500.00 and the crowd were absolutley brilliant. I love it when the crowd get's into the dancing en-mass. It's my main statistic of course and try as one might it doesn't always happen. So once again thankyou all and you can check the review out here
See you all next time and have a great week. Don't forget the clocks go forward this weekend so I feel your pain when it comes to getting up an hour earlier! Take care,
