I suspect we have to see what Merriam Webster has to say. And if Mr Maztastic pipes up the last line should suffice. 'I recommend ignoring them.'

I agree with what wcb posted up.

Starting a new job where at interview stage and on contract it says you work 5 out of 7 days.When i start i find my shift pattern is 3 out of 7 for the first seven days then 8 days straight working going forward.Then they insist you have to cover some evening work where I thought you went in later but no you start at 8am and work through to around 10pm. To top it all off everyone has to go in on bank holiday Monday.
Bonus is only 5 days notice period in the first 3 months.

If you mean hanged to death, it is hanged not hung. It annoys me if people say hung regularly when hanged is the correct term, as you can be hung and not perish. Hanged means the job was completed.

Along similar lines, kids in our local school district went back to school after summer break two weeks ago, so we decided to have a quick 2 night getaway down the coast in a nice hotel.

Get there Wednesday and the place (around the pool) is full of bloody pre-teen kids being, well pre-teen kids.

To be fair they were reasonably well behaved (but still noisy and running around), but the point being we specifically waited until we thought school was back so as to get some "adult time".

Talking to people that work there, local schools to the area go back next week, and there was an abundance of families enjoying one last hurrah before going back to school.

Maybe a post for lessons leaned. Do some more research next time.

Oh, and another thing... very young children in the pool in nappies/diapers...

Fecking house alarm going off while in deepest sleep. Woken up (barely) at 0230 couldn’t see a thing and no idea wtf was going on, deafening alarm, phone ringing from alarm monitoring company, knocked phone behind the bed, stubbed me b****** toe. Missed the phone call which then dials through to our son with newborn and they haven’t slept for weeks, and then it calls the Police so trying to work out how to contact them and confirm we are safe. In stupor, can’t get alarm code right. By now BP likely off the charts, eventually get phone from behind the bed, enter alarm code but eyes still won’t focus and still no idea if we have a burglar in the kitchen or a fecking spider on the detector again. All of this slightly more stressful because earlier we had a largish Van loitering outside the house late tonight. It was a Sainsburys Van and I doubt they deliver circa midnight do they? And as soon as he realised I had clocked him and was walking towards him he drove away. Bit weird.

Anyway, eventually calmed down and now can’t get back to fecking sleep. So basically all of ‘THAT’ annoys me. B*****d!

Add to that - going into a restaurant as a couple and being sat amongst all the families/kids running around when there are clearly quieter tables free elsewhere.

Still a bit annoyed now tbh because it took me 2 hours to get back to sleep and then the alarm (clock) was set early for some reason or other and so running yesterday on 3 or 4 hrs sleep. It was like one of those over contrived sketches in naff movies but for real.

Not sure if it’s a getting old thing but it took me ages to be able to focus my eyes and read the alarm screen. I wear glasses and having knocked them on the floor too, I scrambled around to find them but still couldn’t read the screen. At least now I can imagine how funny it might have been to watch it.

Edit - Google was my friend probably a combo of oldgititis, dried eyes and a massive surplus of Adrenalin :) each of these having that effect.

Extending dog leads.

I walked out one of my shop’s today and didn’t notice the trip chord running between some dumb crossbreed mutt running about 5m ahead of its owner and ended up face palming the pavement.

If you can’t train a fekking dog to walk to heel, don’t buy a fekking dog.

And if you’re intending to justify using extending leads on the fact that your dog is a “rescue” we’ll just stop it. Old dogs can learn new tricks, it just takes a bit of time.

I’d ban extending leads without a vet certificate tomorrow.

Thinking about it, looking at just how many homeless dogs get put down in the uk every year, how can any there be any justification for rehoming overseas dogs in the Uk?

Yep, since lockdown there seems to be a huge increase in pigshit thick owners oblivious to anyone else (and I like dogs in the main).

We were with family sitting at picnic tables overlooking the sea eating fish & chips on the BH Sunday. Only to have a steady stream of dogs off leads wandering up to us slobbering everywhere and generally being annoying. Not one owner apologised and some didn't even bother to get their mutts, they just stood there calling them repeatedly. ******* idiots.

I regularly experience this too - if you can't control your dog, stick it on a leash. Saying "don't worry, he's friendly!" is not a get out, either.

iPad is basically rendered useless. Hard to justify getting a new one.


A bit of a follow-up to this (sorry PeterH)... but looking into this more I see that of my 16GB storage capacity iOS 12.5.6 is taking up 7.62GB’s.

Even apps that will run on iOS 12 will not update as there is insufficient space to do the app update.

Pretty much going to have to remove all music and photos from the thing to be able to use the apps I have.

With my PC out of commission this is really bugging me.

Why oh why after scoring a goal, the goal scorers 1st thought is to taunt the opposition's fans?

It really pisses me off. Fair enough if that player has previously been taunted or treated as a pantomime villain, but it's rarely the case.

Just bung them in the iCloud until your pc’s sorted. Less than 5GB and it won’t cost you a penny.

Yep, all photos and music now gone to the cloud. I also removed the Kindle app.

Only bought me about .8GB of storage... I do have a lot of apps left and the accumulation of them is taking up too much room. I’m going to have to do a serious Spring clean, and consider what I really want to use this old iPad for.

I have a similar problem with my Jurassic Park (2013) iPad. It's really on its last legs. I basically only use it only for reading now. All the other apps I used to use on my iPad are on my phone.
I've lasted this long without replacing it, and have got to the stage of do I really need it? I have my MacBook and iPhone 13 plus streaming apps on the tv. And now that I work from home 100% the real usefulness of the iPad is diminished.

Not sure what vintage my iPad is, must be about the same. Like you I really have not used it much for a few years now, but I sort of dusted it off due to my desktop taking a dump.

I’m sure when it’s fixed it will go back to collecting dust.

Newcastle fans. They were whiney and entitled before, but since the blood money takeover they’ve gone off the scale. Treating a disallowed goal as the most tragic injustice in the history of sport. And they’re bloody everywhere on social media.

The modern game of football:

At any given time (almost) there will be a player on the ground seemingly stricken with injury while the game may or not be allowed to continue without him

VAR lines making sure nobody is a centimetre offside

Players hopping onto the pitch

Playing it out from the back just because its what everybody does these days. You don’t have to do it ALL the time

Endless backwards and sideways passing

I really am losing my emotional attachment to a game I have loved all my life, and it is becoming more and more shit

It was so amusing seeing the Geordies accuse us of time wasting; didn't they watch their game against Liverpool? (And why are they nearly all middle aged men with a shaved head and beer belly?)

This could be a thread all its own :
The fact to take my family to watch Palace at home would cost me in the region of £250 plus.
The excessive amount of money players get paid a week, your average player even in the championship is £35k a week, that is half a million a year!!
Once a upon a time the ideal was that a professional match on a Saturday would be the same ruels etc as a sunday league match. That idealism has been destoryed.
5 subs and replacement keepers where has the jeopardy gone? Use all your subs and a player et injured or Johnnie Salad in goal?

I noticed this too, they are everywhere on social media. Usually seen defending their owners (badly).

They certainly are missing a sense of perspective. I guess the football club is all they have.

The constant downbeat music on ALL radio stations has made today really drag in the office. That and the constant opining of radio presenters about how each song seems so more poignant now is really getting on my nerves.

People who don't position themselves properly when turning right out of a t junction so that cars can pass on the left
