Closure on one front. My appartment is now completely empty, and I don’t have to return there anymore. Which is a very nice feeling. But one of the rules of moving is that if you think you are completely ready, you check all your drawers a last time and you will always find stuff you have forgotten to pack.
In my case I found 2 drawers filled with stuff, but it was too late to do anything else with it than throw out. I haven’t even properly looked what it was, I don’t really want to know. It wasn’t money.
The people from Igen came and picked up the last of my stuff. And to make that as easy as possible (it was a lot!) they parked their car on the sidewalk, close to our door. I live(d) on a very quite street, with nearly no traffic, so this didn’t bother anyone.
Except the parking police man (first time I saw one of those in our neighbourhood !). He simply gave them a parkingticket after 5 minutes, writing it while they were struggling to get one of my drawers down the 8 stairs. Of course I was angry, and so where the two nice guys. I asked him if he didn’t have anything better to do, if he couldn’t see that we were supporting charity here (as this was clearly written on their car). But he couldn’t care less. What a f…. git.
Git : a person who is deemed to be despicable or contemptible; “only a rotter would do that”; “kill the rat”; “throw the bum out”; “you cowardly little pukes!”; “the British call a contemptible person a `git'” [syn: rotter, dirty dog, rat, skunk, stinker, stinkpot, bum, puke, crumb, lowlife, scum bag]
I love to learn new English words, and this is the perfect one for this lowlife scum bag. (Thanks to Y)
