The bus driver apparently thinking he was in a Mini Cooper. Getting in ahead of schedule was nice. The very real possibility of the bus embedding itself in a parked car was not.

Being stuck at home and having the parents plan out my day everyday assuming I have no other plans or life. I know I'm not working or anything over xmas but I still have other important stuff I need to do and could be concentrating on, but thats counted as 'doing nothing'. :rolleyes: I'll just have it lingering at the back of my mind all xmas then be rushing it afterwards, great.

ARGH I feel so frustrated that I cant be arsed doing anything at all now. I'm off to go waste my life watching jeremy kyle instead

Spent all day waiting for a parcel to arrive (my new mobile!) and lo and behold it didn't. Now I've got to do the same thing again tomorrow!

my dad does that without the drinking, just has a go and swears to get his own way all the time, one day I'll knock him out with a frying pan

Sitting in my house freezing for the last week as the heating has broken down again! And I don't have enough money to get it fixed.....

Bus was half an hour late last night so didn't get home from work till half eight - froze everything at the bus stop and then sat and shivered the night away! Grrrrrr..

Everything heat-related pissed me off this morning!

Heating didn't come on so I was frozen as a bugger and the hot water was on the blink, so I had to go to work a cold smelly uncomfortable bugger.

Back on now though :)

My girlfriend's Christmas present still not arriving, despite being ordered well in advance and being 'guaranteed' to arrive by 23rd. Tomorrow's the last day, and something tells me I shouldn't hold my breath. Fuckers.

This old ancient computer being such a pile of shite that I can't even burn a friggin CD! It had over 500MB of memory, then failed to even START burning the tracks cos it ran out of disk space before it had even finished 'preparing' the tracks :? I should have brought my computer home with me.. Now the mother will be moaning cos she doesnt have a good enough christmas cd for tomorrow night when shes 'entertaining guests'. but more to the point, I wasted £11odd downloading all them terribly shite songs :cry: was really worth messing around with til 2am, I give up I'm off to bed..

The bulb that illuminates the dash in my old Escort blew yesterday ... which makes it very difficult to see the speedo in the dark! It's quite disconcerting!

It can't be fixed before Xmas so short trips only for me in the darker hours! :(

Try strapping a child's torch to the dashboard - it's very similar

The car was yesterday ... today was the fourth trip to the hospital in a week ... and despite earlier reassurance that it was a minor burn my daughter had ... skin grafts have now been mentioned! :(
