That’s more of a moan at the seller, IMHO. I found that Walmart here sells a five pack of individually wrapped chicken breasts, and think it’s genius. The price per piece is pretty close to buying a two or four pack, but the ease of being able to put a couple in the fridge and freeze the rest is sweet, and reaching into the freezer and whipping out one or two wrapped individual breast is an indescribable feeling of victory. I usually don’t mind buying the big pack of meat and dividing/wrapping/freezing it, but chicken is messy as all hell.

Ah but has it been chlorinated?

She's the only one who really drives our car. She came home from work on Friday and told me a warning light had come on to do with low pressure in the rear offside tyre. I checked it and it was a lot lower than the other three tyres. 

Stuck it into Kwik Fit this morning ( I know but they're the only garage open on a Sunday in Falkirk) to get the tyre repaired/replaced. 

Somehow its my driving that must have caused cracks in all 4 tyres meaning all need replaced

Should've waited for Ace Tyres on Monday.

I do that simply because I'm able to walk there and back. Others might struggle but not be bad enough to have a blue badge. I'd rather they had a space closer to the shop.

Isn't it more that you a regular visitor to the bottle bank and parking close to it means much less embarrassing 'chink-chink' time ? 😉

I expect your next post to be from inside Carstairs Secure Unit due to having no other clear option in life.

There's a cluster of light switches at the top of the stairs. Left to right, - landing light, shower, bathroom fan, bathroom light. Every time she gets up in the middle of the night or the gloom to go to the bathroom, she's to manically paw at all four like she's trying to work out the combination needed to get out of an escape room but has never seen light switches before.

We've lived in the house for seven and a half years.

Who puts light on to pee in middle night?!

She walks into a room, she puts the light on. Every time. Night time, day time, doesn’t matter. 

If you're asleep in bed at the time, there's not a jury in the land that would convict you.

On reflection the fan is worse for the noise and then in middle night the timed run after switch off seems like days.

To be honest, and fair, we have 2 banks of such at our front door, 3 switches on each.  We've been in our house for 8 years now and none of the 3 of us are proficient in getting them all right all the time.  The one we use every day is almost there but still suffers from frequent error.  Also, I was just about getting there when the sparky had to change the switches and, of course, didn't reconnect in the same order.  C**t. 

Anyway, why does she need a light on in the bathroom to have a pee (or a dump)?

She has a very annoying habit of leaving biscuit wrappers on the sofa rather than just putting them in the bin, which is about a fucking arm's length away.

Pth. Everyone knows small snack item wrappers put themselves in the bin. See also - empty crisp packets tied in bows or in triangles.

I accidentally outed myself the other night when laughing at a Jim Jefferies* stand up when he said that a male sit-down-pee treat is acceptable at two times only: 1) when pished; 2) going for a whizz during the night when you can't be arsed turning the lights on.  Both instances restricted to one's own home.

 

*the Aussie one, not the Jambo

3) When incredibly hungover and standing up would result in projectile vomiting.

Just remembered that I've got a double switch on the stairs, one of which controls the lights, the other of which does...well, who knows? I still occasionally hit the wrong one.

Been meaning to investigate for about fifteen years. Hopefully it's not a The Box situation and I've been murdering a complete stranger every time I flip it.
