When someone has put too much fabric behind the pin of their nametag/badge causing the garment to completely lose its shape.

One of those "shouldn't care but can't take my eyes off" annoyances.

But what if that little gathering of fabric now causes the reduced amount available elsewhere to stretch just a little too tightly and teasingly over other parts of the body...?

My mum is over visiting and thankfully bought me over a long awaited amount of English chocolate and crisps. As I bit into a creme egg that I was so looking forward to I also took into my mouth the cat food gravy I hadn't noticed was on my hand from said foil packet.
It kinda killed the moment.

Good point.

I think ceeby's post is more reflective of the real reason behind my annoyance. The property I live in is about 25 to 30 years old, it's like it was intentionally designed to just stop short of all reasonable measurememts to be able to fit furniture in.

However, I have noticed for some reason, sofas are huge these days, with slimmer designs harder to find.

Coastal Palace 05-01-2019 05:25 PM

I will say new houses in general are awful. They are made as cheapily as possible, resulting in less windows and therefore less light, this also means there is no aesthetic with the design. They are also packed in as close together as possible to maximise profit. New housing estates feel as if you have stepped into a permament Centre Parks, not for me. Give me an old house with big windows and intended archictecture.

I think losing Sunday as a day of rest in this country is a bad thing we will never get back. A day where people dont work and essentially spend times with their families and friends is good for society in my opinion. We now live in a culture of 24/7 work and business. Not good for mental health.

If shops were closed on a Sunday people would just plan their shopping to fit in when it’s open.

Happen to me once

I was on my own driving on the A66 on my way to Scotland. I pulled over and I honestly thought that was it, I was going to check out on my own on the A feckin 66. It passed after 15 minutes or so and as I set back off driving I realised it was likely to be something to do with the full English breakfast I’d just had at the farm shop and the packet of haribo tangfastics after.

I had a dull ache from the top of my right shoulder all the way down my arm.
Don't get me wrong, I've no fear of dying as long as we've won the cup and it's peaceful in my sleep.
There's no way I'll make old bones. As long as it's quick and quiet.
I had a teacher at Norbury Manor who told us we should fear death.
I argued the toss with him that it was inevitable so why fear it!

I failed his class. Amongst numerous others.

Dishwashers.

They have inveigled themselves in to our kitchens as a labour saving device but are, in fact, very very needy. The passive aggressive messages from mine include;
- that plate is 1 mm too tall so I'm not spinning the rotor arm
- that plate is 0.1mm too tall, so I'm going to make a horrendous clanking noice
- no, no - pull the baskets out evenly or I will detach them from the runners
- there is one too many knives in the basket, so I am leaving all those forks dirty
- ha-ha I turned over a saucer and will now spay you with cold dishwater
- I want salt!
- I don't like the shape of that detergent tablet, I will leave it hanging inside the door like a piece of fruit rejected by a toddler
- look, look I managed to rotate the tongs and now they are wedged in the basket wheels, so thats proper stuck
- ooooh, your water is too harsh - I need rinse-aid. Make sure its infused with ylang-ylang and jojoba.
- not my fault you let three grains of rice clog the plug filter and now your elbow deep in filthy water trying to extract it
- aren't I clever - I have washed that Crystal Palace badge off your favourite mug

- that plate is 1 mm too tall so I'm not spinning the rotor arm
- that plate is 0.1mm too tall, so I'm going to make a horrendous clanking noice
- no, no - pull the baskets out evenly or I will detach them from the runners
- there is one too many knives in the basket, so I am leaving all those forks dirty
- ha-ha I turned over a saucer and will now spay you with cold dishwater
- I want salt!
- I don't like the shape of that detergent tablet, I will leave it hanging inside the door like a piece of fruit rejected by a toddler
- look, look I managed to rotate the tongs and now they are wedged in the basket wheels, so thats proper stuck
- ooooh, your water is too harsh - I need rinse-aid. Make sure its infused with ylang-ylang and jojoba.
- not my fault you let three grains of rice clog the plug filter and now your elbow deep in filthy water trying to extract it
- aren't I clever - I have washed that Crystal Palace badge off your favourite mug

Weird - faced exactly the same issues this morning. The wife bought 4 new dinner plates but the feckers dont fit in the dishwasher no matter how much you reposition them. Clank clank fecking clank.

It'll be like Eurovision.

To be fair they do speak better English. His new job will be tracking people down who say 'should of' or 'could of', or 'city' assuming that that somehow means Manchester City.

I'll second this - was on the M1 last week and approaching a point where it narrows from 4 to 3 lanes by merging the inside lane into the 2nd. I was in the 2nd lane, a long way behind the car in front. There was a car in the inside needing to pull out, but rather than maintain 70mph or pull out into the 3rd lane, the car in front of me decided to let them in - however I guess the inside car didn't realise this and slowed down to pull in behind. They both ended up almost stationary, causing me to have to slam on the brakes & swerve out into lane 3 (fortunately empty) to avoid running in to the back of them! Certainly woke my mother-in-law up!
