Why does the universe hate me?...

...and in such subtle ways?

I went to the city on the train.
Chaos - but that doesn't matter.

I was doing a bit of shopping - looking for underwear.
Somehow I found myself in Primark - a shop I would normally avoid like the plague
But I haven't got an income at the moment, so I thought I'd look and see if there was anything suitable - and there was.
So I bought three items (which makes a total of three items I have ever bought from there).

On the way home from the city I was feeling vulnerable, unhappy. Wanted to curl up in a ball or scream. Couldn't stand going home.
Called in at one of my favourite pubs for a drink to fortify myself.
I sat down to read the book reviews in the Guardian.

Lo and behold! One of the reviews was for a book called 'The Song of the Shirt'
About the abuses and deaths and maltreatment of clothing workers in Bangladesh - specifically those working for xyz and abc and Primark.
Why, oh why, did I have to read this today?

So on top of all the thoughts of SH I've been having lately.

Now I deserve punishment for supporting these evil bastards who kill and maim their workers without regard.

Of all the days to read such a thing?

But I am bad. I am heartless. I hate myself.

or do I?

And that deserves punishment too. I SHOULD hate myself.

Oh bum :low:

punishing yourself is not gonna help the people who made the clothes is it?
