Friends and family on faceache sharing that they've voted and who they've voted for.

Just ****ing vote and be done with it. You don't need to tell the world.

Yes, but then what else would they do with their lives?

Which leads me to another one, again on faceache.

My cousin, who bunked off school for most of her teenage years, left school with no qualifications, has never worked a single day in her life, got pregnant at 18 and has been living off of the state for the last 25 odd years, the other day sharing a meme joking that we should all wait until Friday 13th to do our Xmas shopping as if Labour get in, everything will be free.

I'm not sure some people even realise they've been born.

People like that are genuinely proud I think, to be rinsing the system.

I ditched Facebook around 6-7 years ago, don't miss it one bit.

I hate people, so much!

Multipacks of crisps.

I would like to be able to buy one bag of multipack sized crisps for the 30 pence they are valued at when you get them as part of a 6 pack.Not an option. It's either 80-90p for a slightly bigger bag or an enormous bag for a quid.

I have just eaten 6 packs of crisps in about 8 minutes.

It's the terrible guilt that then gets me..but no, you're right, it's their bloody fault for making the multipack bags so small..

Good work, as the flavours ran into each other what flavour changed the most? Did you start with your favourite and work down, or leave for the finale?

Duuuude, this is important information I needed, I feel we missed an opportunity. Have a go tomorrow with 6 different flavours and report back. I would have a go myself but still carrying a little extra weight from Christmas.

That narrows it down to Cheese & Onion or Salt & Vinegar..
Anyone had those Sprout Lovers & Haters, six packs?

My missus tried them. They are basically onion flavour, and they state clearly on the packet that they contain no actual sprout flavour, which all seems a bit odd to me.

People who cough and don't put their hands over their mouths. Disease spreading vermin.

I was thinking the exact same thing earlier today when I was in Sainsbury's & saw & heard someone coughing with no attempt at covering their mouth.
Nice.
That's why colds & flu spread like wildfire, this time of year. Dirty f*ckers. And as for spitters, in the street.
Is it China or Japan where people wear a facemask if they've got the lurgy? Very civilised.

LinkedIn.

What started as a very handy business tool , to my mind anyway, has , like everything else been infiltrated and ruined by every 2nd person the world thinking they are a guru or some other type of inspiration.

The level of virtue signalling undertaken is now about as bad any other social media platform which is ****ing annoying as I kind of need it for my work.

If I see one more middle manager from a high street bank post " it's not about the size of the dog in the fight ......" because they had a bad train journey and their boss was a bit mean to them, there is going to be trouble.

I can't go on there anymore without feeling a seething rage in about two minutes
The level of humble (and not so humble) bragging is off the scale
The spoof accounts that take the piss out of the worst offenders are fairly amusing though
