Matt Baker is alright by me until further disgrace. Asking David Cameron how he sleeps at night on live tea time TV earns my respect.
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.

Folk that arrange to buy something, arrange collection time then don’t show up.
Rude fucking cunts.
Selling my Apple Watch and they wanted it straight away. I now have to fuck about messaging other folk that were interested.

So I've taken the day off work to chill out and get a few things done without any kids under my feet. Guess fucking what? #1 has decided that she still feels poorly from yesterday and is now laid on the sofa under a blanket! Bloody, bloody kids! If she thinks she's watching fucking Boomerang all day, she's got another thing coming! :rambo:

we had pretty much no water yesterday or today, no-one in the neighborhood seems to, hence kids' school is closed for the day :thumbd:

I have no doubt that's both more frustrating and less expensive than my weekend troubles, we've had no hot water since Friday (boiler temp dropped from 60 odd degrees to about 25 as soon as we ran a hot tap) then sometime on Saturday night the boiler conked out entirely. £300 later it's back working but the broken part was full of black gunk, turns out we have no filter before the boiler and there should be. £500 more expense to come in a few months (when weather is better and plumber is less busy) to have one fitted and the system flushed as the same stuff will be in all the radiators, lovely.

Isn’t Google fucking shit?

Couple or three years ago I hired a car from a small indy backstreet place in Brighton. Great, it was: car was a few years old but it was fine and cheap as chips.

So I went to look for it today because I can’t remember the name or the exact address. But the first three whole pages on fucking Google are boosted ads, aggregator sites, review sites and the one I was looking for is nowhere. Tried everything like ‘Independent’, ‘used car’ etc in the search but the ad boost still overrides it.

Even the fucking yellow pages doesn’t exist anymore. Cunts. Because Google will destroy small independent businesses through lack of exposure.

Jesus Christ no, that's a different kind of shit just less competent.

DuckDuckGo if you want 'freedom' or stick to Google if you want to find anything.

I am sick to fucking death of illuminated road signs telling me not to drive when drinking texting or drugged up. I am aware of them rules I am not some fuckwit. I rarely text when driving, never drive under the influence but if I did your fucking message is too late.
If there’s no traffic information then spread happy messages as I’m on the hamster wheel to and from work. And yeah I’m writing this sat at the lights. Where’s your ministry of fucking truth guidance on that you fucking saps.
