I can’t even begin to describe the pain. But going back to the normal levels of grumpiness I have again been threatened with divorce for leaving the toilet seat up! Nothing like a wife to bring things down to reality


At least you found the toilet. With your navigation skills she should be grateful you didn’t pee in the sink.


Yeah, and whose sink?

Is it really necessary to be such grasping cunts all the fuckin time?
Does a business model where you treat your customers other than like cattle really not work?
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.

Never giving them a penny again, would rather go by boat, train and donkey. Fuck him and fuck his "model". Vote with your feet.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

There was a thing doing the rounds a while ago with a phone interview with a Ryanair pilot. Generally they get treated like total shit, but the highlight was finding out that because of the whole sealed bottle security thing they have to buy bottled water, and they pay the same price as passengers.

I'm having one of me very occasional beardy moments, brought on by being too idle to shave over Christmas.

I've hardly any grey hairs on my head but the beard's full of the fuckers and they grow twice as fast as the normal ones.

I object.

Collar and cuffs?
The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

Yep, grey hairs are savaging my beard and moustache. But i quite like it. A bit of grey creeping onto the side of my head too.

I'm sure you're getting it checked out, but daughter the second had that when she was 15. Apparently cysts are quite common at that age, she had it drained and all was fine.

Anyone else noticed that R4's Today programme is slowly turning into Woman's Hour?

Got to do a Board presentation this afternoon on our cost risk position on this project.

Senior delivery manager (ie above me) has seen my draft and told me to edit out a whole bunch of stuff which is almost certain to increase cost and create delay. This shit is utterly endemic in construction industry project management: 'Yeah, it's all fine'.

And then people struggle to understand why companies like Carillion fail.

matt baker, countryfile and the one show. dan walker, football focus and breakfast news. have there ever been two more bland, lowest common denominator charmless yet inoffensive uncharacteristic dullards making loads out of our licence fee? god i long for the days of des lynam who would seem to a be positively dangerous appointment nowadays.
