Had an appointment with a biomechanic today. As well as underestimating how long it would take me to walk there I needed a dump just before leaving, got there 25 minutes late and now have to book again. :evil:

5 minutes wandering around Lidl looking for a can of beans. Then another 5 minutes wandering around Lidl looking for a member of staff. Found the beans first!

I despair, I understand the urge for cancer charities to put their issues front and centre but criticising a TV program for comparing levels of tanning.
If you accept that you would need to remove vast amounts of advertising.
Getting a tan is not a problem. Baking yourself to a crisp is.

This makes me incandescent with rage.
"Viral Bradford zebra crossing crashes caught on CCTV"
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-63723215

How can any driver not respect a zebra crossing. You're driving a ton of metal that requires the slightest of touches to slow and then reaccelerate. But these guys/gals have no respect for the soft fragile human just trying to get from A to B.
Sorry, one of my pet hates is drivers not respecting the vulnerability of pedestrians and cyclists.

In the lounge of my mum's care home, TV showing an FA cup match that nobody's watching. Tried to change channel to ITV - they don't have a flipping outdoor aerial. No picture!!

I'm just looking at dough-making machines to help make my pizzas. The one at the bottom costs a little more but has three speeds and comes with a plastic cover. :roll:

Edit: The cheaper one comes with a splash guard not shown in the picture so my mind's made up. :D

My deodorant stopped working. I had two cigarettes outside London Liverpool Street station and nobody came up to me to scrounge a cigarette. :lol:

With 1000 fag butts scattered on the ground, plus my two, when will someone have the brains to have a fag bucket? At least I look around for an ashtray before dropping mine on the ground.

There's usually a drain somewhere, and you get the chance to practice your flick. I've been known to fetch it back for another go if I miss, like when you get fixated on getting socks in the laundry basket from a self imposed ocke.

Remember getting a black cab from Euston to Deptford. Back then it was just over £10. Gave him a £20 and he took off with my change. Some taxi drivers are pretty reprehensible. Which defines humanity in general.
Some are good, some aren't.

My problem used to be chucking scrumpled-up paper in the bin. It would sometimes take 20 minutes and the more you miss the more determined you are to get it in!
