I think the time has come for me to say fcuk it and walk away. I'm an ex bootie who works in the promotions industry and I have to deal with the public and the media on a day to day basis and quite frankly I just cant be fcuked anymore. I'm sick of being screwed every which way by the government for more and more tax...money that I have to earn before I hand it over, sick of being nice to people.....I on avarage have a knife pulled on me once every 9 months, that doesn't bother me, what grips my shite is I cant fill them in because I'd be the one in the wrong then. I'm fed up with dealing with the public, period. The great unwashed in this day and age expect the world for fcuk all and are not prepaired to lift a finger for anything....the world owes them a living, it is there God given right to have everything for fcuk all, well sorry I disagree. I believe it or not do a fair amount for charity, again I'm sick of this, not because of the kids we deal with but because of the arsseholes who make a living out of working for charities, they're on Â£60K a year, nice car and all expenses paid yet expect someone like me to work for fcuk all (I once fcuk off prince charles because he wouldn't donate a days pay to a charity like he expected me to)......Hello....get real...if any of you out there want to help a charity dont even think about comic relief or any of the other telly shite, help out the london taxi drivers and the stirling work that they do for this countrys under privalaged kids.....The taxi drivers do all there work for free, the london based army regts help out every year and the kids get spoilt...it's a privalage to be involved with something that they organise. Back to my main gripe...the public....you should see some of the letters of complaint I've had after this years summer tour with Noddy (what fcuking summer)..... Dear mr Blobbs....My daughter who is 10 years old wasn't allowed on the free bouncy castles that where for the under 6's............... Dear Mr Blobbs, my children entered the fancy dress compitition and didn't win, I expect compensation for the work that I did in dressing them up.... Dear Mr Blobbs, I bought a helium balloon and when I let go of it, it dissapeared, can I have a refund..... Dear Mr Blobbs, I attended one of your events and it rained...... Dear Mr Blobbs, I attended one of your events and it wasn't the real Noddy it was someone dressed up..... What gets me is they think I care. Then I get the phone calls....... Blobbs: hello Punter: can you give me directions to your show Blobbs: where are you coming from Punter:My house Blobbs: no shite. Blobbs: Hello Punter: can you tell me what the weather will be like at XXX a week next sunday? Blobbs: No Punter: why not? Blobbs: I've misplaced my cristal ball, call me a week next saturday and I should have found it by then Blobbs: Hello Punter: I have just bought tickets for your show on-line and I want a refund... Blobbs: why? Punter: because season ticket holders for xxx venue get in free Blobbs; are you a season ticket holder then? Punter: No, but I always wanted to be Blobbs:.......................... So, what do I do, walk away or grin and bear it? I have responsibilities to meet to my family and staff but feel no loyalty towards others, it's a tough one.
