Some absolute scummer at my new building, who clearly could not wait the full 2 minutes it'd take to reach his office and so was munching away at his sandwich in the lift.

Some c**t has been microwaving fish in the office kitchen. Seriously, that needs to be made a sacking offence.

It's either that or the fat dyke in finance has avoided washing for a few days.
But yes I agree. if not a sacking, a good shoeing.

It'll be one of the Millenials that spends all day talking about her paleo diet and her weight-training routines, whilst apparently failing to register that she's still a size 18.

I ordered something from Amazon on 8th April.

It still hasn't arrived.

My orders list still shows it "On the way, but it's running late", as it has for several weeks now.

The track orders button wont let me click on it, and there's no way to cancel. I can't contact the seller, as the seller is Amazon.

It's only £4.49 but it's seriously pissing me off now.

Get on a web chat with someone from customer services. I have managed to get my own way just about every time I've done that.

They'll have a copy of Joe Wicks cookbook nailed on.

He's my new hate figure, John Higgins is yesterday's man.

Following on from this, the way advertising companies have stopped using thin models on the grounds they don't want to emphasise unhealthy body images, yet replace them with unhealthily overweight ones. One is as bad as the other.

^ Similar though still is how many people will go on about what size, weigh you should be, how often you should go to the gym, and how much you should or shouldn't eat or drink, including what food you should or shouldn't be having.

The face of Michael Gove.

Pride month. I have nothing against your standard homosexual but those non-binary, gender fluid, transcyborgnetic, pansexuals can f*** off. War veterans who risked their life to keep us safe get a day to be remembered but these people, who have decided that there are 247 more genders than male and female, get a whole month to be celebrated.

It's also German Chocolate Cake Day today, Superman Day tomorrow, and International Axe Throwing Day the one after.

I can see where you're coming from, but I'm not really sure why there needs to be a correlation between D Day and LGBT awareness?

That said, I'm a miserable old git so any celebration that lasts a full month is likely to rile me.

Remember to get your protein shake within five minutes of training or it doesn't count :lol:
