Cranky Old Lady Story 1

Yesterday when I left work I was in a bit of a mood. I had a thumper of a headache and hadn’t slept well the night before.

And opposite my building, was a busker playing the bagpipes.

I was tempted to offer him money to stop playing and go away. It was a very cantankerous old-person moment.

Is that from a movie or TV or a comedy sketch or something? I’m sure it is, but it’s not the sort of thing that’s easily googled, as I discovered when I went to try to come up with a witty link for this post.

On the other hand, I did see some incredible buskers last week walking from Railway Square to Central Station through the tunnel. One guitar and four guys singing some amazing Latin harmonies. I emptied all the change from my wallet for those guys.

See, I’m not always cranky.
