when ur trying to act chill
Last week I sent an email to a feminine hygiene product company to complain about their liners. The glue of the liners would melt and stain my underpants!
Anyway they apologised, asked if I still had the batch codes of the products and said that they would send me new ones that apparently do not have he defect.
So today I received a big package and it was from them. As promised, two boxes to replace the duds and also a pretty canvas bag and a cute postcard note of apology.
Not bad going.
I’m taking an introductory T&I course and we have to do these very short reports every couple of weeks.
This time the topic if translating fiction and urgh.
I’m trying to go through the readings to find information that I can use in my report and it’s just all jargon.
I feel so stupid. I find it boring and I fell even more stupid for finding it boring.
I have to look at a translated text and compare the original to the translated.
I don’t want to deconstruct the whole story and talk about the words used to replace certain words and whatnot.
Maybe this is not for me.
