Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

Sitting down to watch something I’ve recorded on Sky, and it starts with the last couple of minutes of the previous programme and then the following adverts.
No need, Sky, you c***s.
Surely you do what I do and select "user defined" for a start and stick in 3 mins?

You can kind of see his point, he doesn't want folk coming into his shop.  He could have been less of a dick about it, of course.

He's the Tool in "Toolstation"

Indeed, although it’s still the usual setup (a manned desk with a catalogue), not a click and collect point as he clearly prefers it to be.  If they don’t want walk ins then just make it C&C rather than whinge about competitors giving you their custom.

Rosebank Cemetery.

Fucking corpses coming in at 4:57pm, expecting to be buried.

I can't spell 'cemetery'. I blame Stephen King.

Besides the point! Sky trying to force me into watching adverts is a PTTGOMN.

I'm only 5"10 but when I'm out and about or in work or the pub I'm taller than a lot of other males there.  What's the UK average height these days?

And before anyone starts, no I don't work in a primary school, or a place where Hobbits live.

On the YouTube app they've stopped you from clicking on the time line line and jumping to that part of the video. You've now got to grab the little white dot and slide it to the position in in the video.
Very petty but very annoying.

Thank you. I'd convinced myself that I'd imagined it used to have that functionality.

Tech companies are great for removing options and telling you it's somehow an improvement.

Just went and tested this and it's not my experience, can click on timeline fine just like always. Are they doing some sneaky A/B testing?

I’m in that Screwfix constantly. Now that I know where you work I’m going to appear regularly at 4.55pm just to browse the timber for 20 mins, and never to actually purchase anything.

I can't find the book I want to read. It was in the kitchen and now it isn't.

If this scenario was played out in "The Broons" you'd be Paw Broon, the book would be called "How to improve your memory" and the rest of the Broons would call you a daft gowk 

As it is your book is probably in the bog.
