Things that piss you off that shouldn't

Recommended Posts

Having a day's holiday at my workplace.

 

I've got Friday and Monday off coming up.. great, except that i'll probably have to cover those 16 hours i'm off by working late before and after the holiday to cover my own work as everyone is so stretched at work. Then i'll probably spend those days worrying about work and whether everything is ok!

Just take this weekend for example. About half way through last weekend it was predicted to be lovely and circa 18degC which they got bang on.

 

They probably predicted 18C, there are no degrees. And seeing as it's this thread; it's Celsius, not centigrade.

"manchester should be the UKs 2nd city because it has this great hub in Salford Quay that Birmingham doesnt..."

Is it just me or have digestives got much thinner?? They don't have the same dunk-ability factor as a few years back.  I'm forever losing biscuit to the bottom of the mug!

My inability to finish a book even when it's good. Sometimes I think I really need to scrap my TV and computer.

Yes.

 

When tropical fruit are picked they ain't ripe, but are loaded into refrigerated containers and shipped to the UK, then they ripen on the shelves.

Yes and Yes. Manchester get Media City, Commonwealth games. Birmingham get Pebble Mill closure, a non backed Olympic bid,  and not even the UK capital of culture which went to Londonderry/Derry. Birmingham is nearly twice the size of Manchester. The greater urban areas are similar though. Should be called Greater Birmingham like Greater Manchester. West Midlands is too vague.

So the 'vine ripened' ones have to be shipped over a lot quicker then otherwise they would go off sooner?...or are they flown over?...perhaps that's why they're dearer.

Grapes ain't tropical neither.

Load of bullshot

Although it is tastier, it's just another bullshit story to get u to spend

They are actually considering this, was on the radio yesterday.
