New carpet yesterday.

She got given ONE instruction.

Cat 6 cable to run from the hub, under the carpet, under the door to the connected devices.

Did it happen?

:angry:

Then carpet comes up.  Lesson learned.

I went to get the pry bar. She freaked out.

Apparently the carpet was glued at the edges and hit with a magic shovel(?).

If it becomes an inconvenience, it'll be coming up.

Carpet.  Comes.  Up.

Simply remind her whose fault it is :thumb: That should resolve all remaining issues :trollface:

saw a bit of click bait on Facebook with the headline "Martin Kemps storms off just minutes into talent show"

for reasons I'll never fully fathom I clicked it and it links to this story on the Daily Express

which goes on about how Kemp didn't take the joke well , got out of his seat and began to walk away ..and was begged to sit down

 

watch the video  , it doesn't take long I promise and see if you can spot the difference  (hence why It pisses me off  (I followed the link ), and it shouldn't (cause I really shouldn't have given a flying monkeys about the article / show )

I can't see the video but read the article.

I'm guessing it was all done in totally good humour, Kemp wasn't angry in the slightest and the Express have spun it to make it sound like he was?

I've read about women going back to work and basically working for nothing as their childcare eats up their wages. I think they do it to keep themself sane and also get them back out  in the working environment. I also know a couple of women who are not expected to work and stay at home tending to the house and kids whilst their bloke goes out to work.

Could have been worse I suppose, if you had 6 cats that is.

"Where's Timmy the kitten" and the resulting fallout and recriminations.

Alexander Armstrong. I like Pointless, and Richard Osman seems like an OK bloke. But Armstrong, what a smug rocket polisher. And his shit singing career. But most of all, the fact that he insists on being called - not Alec or Alex - but 'Zahnder'. clearing in the woods.

Oddly I saw Osman on Taskmaster and it put me off him. He gave up tasks ridiculously quickly and didn't seem to want to join in the fun.

Asparagus to nothing but his old sidekick Miller used to go out with Rachel Weisz. Lucky bugger.

Trusting a woman with cabling is akin to trusting the financial security of a nation to George Osborne. Pretty mental that.

Yeah Richard Osman on anything other than Pointless I find irritating.  Much more smug than Alexander Armstrong.  I've never had a problem with Armstrong, he is always one of the best presenters on Have I Got News For You and I think he knows his singing is laughably shit.  So basically 9/10 WB.

Toilet shenanigans again today.  I went to go for a dump and there was the deputy manager putting loads of 'Damaged, do not use' tape over one of the cubicles.  Turned out someone had ripped out the toilet and lent it on its side.  **** knows who, how or why, but there was bog water everywhere and it stank terribly.  It can't have been accident, surely.  Some people must really hate work.

Or possibly the gorilla enclosure at a zoo?

No but it makes you think of scenarios and candidates.  There are a few that belong in a zoo or prison that could have done it I suppose but I struggle to think how.  Whether someone took a tumble and landed on it, then did a runner, or had an incredibly serious case of the shits, which seems unlikely.  Must have been someone with a bit of power that lost their temper.
