You do have a point, but personally I think you should just let people make their own choices and leave them to it. My irritability with it has a lot to do with the fact I've heard the same thing every day for the past fortnight, and his excuse is that his horrid girlfriend was picked on by fat girls at school for being skinny (as I said, it's her he's picked it up from.) This is a woman in het late forties - I'd have expected she might have grown up a bit by now.

Sounds lame but you'd have to hear the sanctamonious, holier-than-thou attitude this is always delivered with.

I'm a fat smoker who drinks way too much.

Your tax is delicious.

brainfart, its a 17" one i need :lol:
what pissed me off now? the price. considering it's literally 100% going to break again within a few years, im now wondering if its even worth replacing.
and im doing a ten hour shift tomorrow and i cant sleep :x


What is the price? £80-£120 isn't unheard of for laptop screens.

yeah its about £80. i have 3 weeks before i get paid so im gonna have a think about whether its worth replacing the screen or if i should just start saving for a new laptop now.

How the fuck can they get away with giving you £2 an hour? That sounds ridiculous! I'd like to do that sort of work but that payment would be taking the piss..
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Because the event manager I work for is a stingy bastard and doesn't pay by the hour. They say turn up at whatever time and say you'll get paid X amount. And then because nothing ever finishes on time and everything takes longer than predicted you occasionally end up doing 4+ hours overtime! Still, beats doing it for free, which I have done in the past.

Lost my consultant's letter. I'm sure I had two, so how I've lost them both is beyond me. The numbers on the website had better be right or this could be a very long morning :lol:

Also, got my first "it could be worse, it could be cancer" yesterday. Honestly, do people say that to people with a cold? Hayfever? Why when you have something serious is it acceptable to write it off because it isn't cancer? Not that I'm belittling cancer, it's terrible, but that's far from the most helpful thing someone's said :P

100xp in cynisim to me :lol:

I'd never think of saying that to anyone. I'd have probably punched someone if they said that to me.
Hope it's not too long a phone call.

Cheers :) and I'd be lying if I said I didn't consider doing so :lol:

There's a brilliant submission-based Tumblr blog called Chronic Illness Cat, and it's full of all the really stupid things people say - like that. A friend who has Crohn's and I play a game in which every time someone says something stupid that appears on the blog (that cancer one is on there) you gain "spoony" experience.

She's doing miles better than me bless her :P

It does make me think what goes through people's minds to think that that is a good thing to say.
Obvs nothing went through their mind :lol:

Just had a look at that.
This made me laugh far too loudly at work:
