Things that piss you off that shouldn't

I had an online delivery from Morrisons purely because I wanted to order Wainwright Golden Ale in cans.  Ordered a couple of other bits and bobs off the back of it.

Order arrives with no Ale.  Makes me so angry.  I'm going to re-order with the beer only so if they don't have any they can just cancel the bloody order!

I accept responsibility for the Ale desire, but not for the no-show.

Thanks to @maqroll for the prompt. 

That had confused me!

What the hell do they call actual pies then?

You can order direct from the RIngwood Brewery with the added advantage of them coming in bottles not cans. £37.50 for a case of 24, you have to buy in multiples of 12 or 24 but they sell Wainwright in 8's But that also means you can add some of the other beers they sell, which includes Bank's Amber Bitter (they sell beers by a few other Breweries too)

Thing is, believe it or not I actually PREFER it from cans.  I find bottled beer to gassy.  Also the cans come in at £1.12 per can v £1.56 per bottle so I actually pay less for something I prefer............as long as the bear stewards turn up with it.

Thing is, it's been showing as out of stock for months so I was so excited to see it actually in stock again.  But it really isn't.

At least in Canada, in my experience what we would call pies are not widely available. And I think they are or would probably be called 'pasties'.

I think Amazon use Morrisons (at least that's where I've seen Amazon Fresh staff getting their items) so that would probably be a good place to check for your biscuits

Yes, you're right. Thing is, i went morrisons online and they aren't on there - perhaps it might be different if i poppedin. I used to buy them from waitrose but the nearest one to me is in lichfield. 

Bottom line is i am lazy at the moment and get a buzz out of the fact that I can have my shopping picked, bagged and delivered without even moving from my Homer Simpson ass grooved seat.

I believe there is currently a national Marmite shortage? My mum was going on about this the other day, apparently they haven't been brewing as much because of lockdown or something. Might be complete bollocks to be honest.

Think you might be right there. I've even thought about going  to the factory to see if they have an onsite shop so i could fill my boots (or car boot)

I thought ‘pie’ in reference to pizza was reserved just for authentic deep dish/Chicago style pizza? As it literally resembled a slice of pie?

I went to Brean on Monday. Hadn’t been there since I was about 12 I think so about 24 years. Always hated it even as a kid as the sea was always out and I hate sand but the nostalgic side of me took over and I thought I’d appreciate it more now I’m an adult. I never knew there was a world war fort on top of the headland so went up there to check it out. That part was lovely, the walk across the downs was great and first impressions of the beach were good. Pre 12:00. After 12:00? Jesus Christ......

When we got back down to the beach from up at the fort I was shocked to see that the beach had now become what looked like 90% cars/campervans instead of sand. It was a horrible sight and made me feel so sad. Has it always been like that? I don’t remember it being full of cars years ago. Such a shame. Kids having to stop playing and running around every few minutes because Darren and Tracey in their souped up Astra wanted to go past with trance music playing for everyone in a 200 mile radius to hear. It was the Mos Eisley of beaches. Horrible and I’ll never go back again now. 

I actually have a soft spot for Weston SM, but Brean can go **** itself.

A lot of people, me included, learning that with the option of foreign holidays taken away you have to be extremely careful with where you go in the UK. So many shit holes that will be anything but a holiday.

On that theme, we booked a few days in Clacton-on-sea at the end of July… I’m nervous now that it’s another Blackpool/Skegness type place? Can anyone confirm? It seemed a good idea at the time as it’s somewhere we’ve never been, and plenty to do.

Porthtowan.  Slice of heaven!

Cornwall in general is so much better than most UK seaside resorts.  It's just a heck of a long way away (in UK terms) though I understand Newquay gen get a little bonkers at times!

We're heading down to North Devon in a few weeks to see the family. I was speaking to my brother last night and he was saying how it was the busiest they've ever seen it. I can only imagine the chaos that the school holidays will bring.
