And had their coffee been just a few degrees cooler, her injuries would presumably have been reduced too.

Got 3 hours for a lunchtime nap though.

Have to say that during my stay in Wellington earlier this year and on passing through Sydney and Melbourne it did feel like "USA-lite" to me. Very different from when I was over that way 15 years ago.

Agree - and along the same lines, when you contribute via mail/Internet to one of the big charities (Heart, Cancer, Save the Children etc.) they then start to send you solicitations every month or so wanting more.

Americanisms. Grrr. What really grips my shit is when people greet other people with 'Hey' instead of hello. 'Hey' in my vocab is a word I use to alert people quickly that I need their attention. For example 'Hey jump out of the way, that bus is going to splat you all over the road.'

What should piss you off more FEE is the total FAIL by the UK Gov in collecting the tax in the first place. The corps listed in that graphic (if the numbers are correct) are not breaking any laws - if they were the taxman would be after them for the unpaid tax + relevant fines (maybe they are?)
We hear about this type of tax "evasion" (??) all too frequently, yet the tax laws still seem to allow such "evasions" to continue.
Too much vested interest??

People that text you to say that you must call them ASAP, without giving any hint in the text about what it's about. You think it's something very important, like they've been in an accident or they're having a crisis or something. You phone them up and it's usually mundane shit like "oh, just wanted to know whether you could pick me up at 5 rather than 5.30?"

Unresponsive touch screens on ticket machines at train stations. Press a button, nothing happens for 10 seconds so you press again, then have to press delete as its typed too many letters out, then that is slow so you're not sure whether to press again. Then it selects the wrong station and you have to start again, which takes a good while to load. And repeat.
