I haven't posted a "I feel like S**t" thread in a while; I guess now's the time, seeing as I do. I went for my license yesterday with a friend, but failed the first part of the test. In South Australia you have to sit a test with two components to get your learner's permit - Part A is the Give Way test, and Part B is a series of multiple choice questions about road rules and road safety. Part A has eight examples of when you have to give way on the roads; you have to get them all right to proceed to Part B. Here's the part I tell you that not a lot of people get past the Give Ways on their first go. My friend (other friend, not the one who went with me) went three times before he got his L's. But this didn't seem to sink in with another friend of mine (... complicated story behind my friend. I know, it sounds like I have tons of them...). As soon as I turned up at Spanish class today he said to me "So I hear you failed your L's test? Gee whiz, Steph; how embarrassing!" Now this friend is the most important person in my life. His opinion matters the most to me, and for him to say that to me was like... it was the most painful thing I had ever experienced for quite some time. I don't want him to think I'm a failure - I've already done it once already to him (fail, that is), and the last thing I wanted was to do it again. So I was p***ed. I still am a bit, but after writing it all out it's kinda made me feel a bit better. But still; it upset me a lot. And I felt it was necessary that you all had to put up with me b****ing about stuff you don't care about. So there.
