Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

Tutorial assignment for tomorrow. I haven't started. Not through laziness, I physically cannot do it. I don't understand the material, I don't have the book (through no fault of my own) and there's no chance of doing it for tomorrow. You think if I just tell the truth I can be allowed to do it at a later date after gaining a bit of help from my tutor?

Also, when opposing teams fail to turn up to matches.

If you don't understand what you need to do, OF COURSE you need to tell your tutor. That's what they're there for.

Is it anything that anyone here can help with, perhaps?

Edit because that didn't really answer the question. Depending on how long you've had the assignment set for, you may get limited sympathy. I mean, if it was set a week ago and you've been sitting on it since, you ought to still get help and the chance to hand it in later, but you'll probably get a bollocking for not having said so earlier.

In my experience they never take tutorial stuff too seriously. I always did mine on time but on the odd occassion people in my tutorial group didn't and nothing much was said.

If you explain you are struggling a bit, then they'll show some sympathy and at worst he/she will be a bit irritated.

What do you do?

Outrage in the xbl house tonight, Ludovic got put out of Masterchef. :(

My PTTGOYN: reading Masterchef spoilers in the PTTGOYN thread! <_<:rolleyes:

I watched the first half on the telly and planned to watch the second half on the iPlayer - Ludo must have made a mess of his last challenge if he's been knocked out, I was sure he'd make it to the finals.

I have a tutorial tomorrow and I don't know what it's based on, as Richard refused to print enough course handouts for the entire class.

Tutorials can be bullshitted through anyway, unless you actually need to hand in a marked piece.

I'm struggling with my tutorial as well. Second year Law. Cannae grasp the questions. Book doesnae help much. There is a bit to hand in but it isn't graded so the worst she can do is moan at me.

As LM says, you should ask the tutor, we're here to help, and if you don't understand, then its much more useful if you say straight away, rather than waiting on it all week. I find that tutors are often willing to make time to sit down and explain stuff to you.

Of course, if you've had it for three weeks, then again, as LM says, then you deserve a bollocking!

Oh shit, sorry Naitch! :ph34r:

Edited to add, as for non graded stuff, its pretty much expected that you won't do it all, but the least that should be expected is that you have given it a go. If you really don't understand it, then ask a classmate or tutor, don't just sit in silence!

It's cool - I'm just catching up on the 2nd half now with Uruguay/Argentina on in the background. No offence to Matt as he is decent enough, but I'm really eager to see how Ludo messed things up (that's right, I have no life :P).

I'm not telling you anything! But it does mean Ryan is going to walk the final now. The adopted son of Michel Roux. Let me know when you have watched it so I can vent. :ph34r:

It was the raw apples that done it for Ludo, fatal mistake. To be fair, Matt's dishes looked cracking.

Ryan, or RoboChef as I've seen him dubbed elsewhere, should walk the final though Marianne could run him close.

Vent away... :D

Ludo's clearly been taking lessons from the Ric school of pastry chefs.

Oh Matt had a decent round, but he isn't half the chef Ludo is. And without wanting to sound paranoid, that semi final was rigged against Ludo. What was Ludos problem in the earlier round? Timing. So naturally, they wanted him to suffer. They put him in a Tapas restaurant that was all about speed, and they stifled his creativity by putting him in an assembly line.

Did he suffer? No he did not. He rode it with ease. Then move on to the dishes, and while I am willing to concede that Matt really improved, its significant that he was being judged against a much lower of standard than Ludo was. So Ludo had set himself up for a mighty fall, and sure enough, the producers eventually managed to send him down, and clear the way for robochef (:lol:).

Ludo should have been in that final. Oh, and I despise that presenter! I like Michel Roux, but I cannot stand that baldy b*****d. And I appreciate that this post might make me seem like an OF fan. Sorry.

Michel Roux Jr. is brilliant -- Gordon Ramsey et al could learn a lot from him in how to conduct yerself on the telly box.

As for Baldy... he's fine, but tended to just repeat whatever Michel (or his deputy Monica) said in the earlier rounds. He does like his puddings though -- he just about loved every dessert put down to him in the qualifiers!

I don't like how they've set up the whole semi-final format anyway... they should have had an 'open draw' rather than have the two who came through from the same show facing off against each other. Means the likes of David from last night didn't have a chance of going any further.

He's not like most chefs. He conducts himself with dignity, and he seems like a really classy guy. So even when he really doesn't like the food, he explains why in a clear and honest way, without being needlessy nasty or bullying the contestants.

I can't abide the bald b*****d though. I hate the way he shovels food into his gob like an animal. If Michel Roux can eat like a human being, so can you. Also, I despise the way he pronounces his "a" sound wrongly. Fucking speak properly. Oh, and what qualifies him to judge food? As you said, he repeats what Michel says, albeit in less detail, and he never offers specific criticism that might actually be constructive. And tonight he described raw apple as a "strange" taste. How the hell do you eat apples then? Finally, I don't like the sex face he puts on every time he eats a dessert.

Agree with that as well.

I never watch Masterchef normally, but I'm loving this series.

:lol:

The sheer elation on his face as he demolishes whatever is in front of him is a sight to behold. :P

I used to watch it in the Lloyd Grossman era, but went off it. Can't stand John Torode so didn't watch any of the series' he did .. but got back into it when this current run started and it has been fantastic (though some of the chefs in the heats were horrific!).

Opening a bag of crisps, forgetting i had opened said bag of crisps, opening another one, then looking down and seeing 2 open bags of crisps. Now i feel fat for eating them both.

I have a Dr's appointment at 08:40 hrs tomorrow with the most miserable sod in the whole practice. All I need is a line to cover the days following my 5 days self-cert but I bet he gives me a lecture about it. It's the same c**t that refused to re-prescribe my anti-depressant medication as I was 'new to the practice so I can't re-prescribe your medication as I have never prescribed it to you before'.

Smart alec f**k-faced twat. It's partly his fault that I stopped my medication and am where I was a few weeks ago.

I am NOT looking forward to it! :angry:<_<:(
