Does that make me an angry cunt? It probably does.

Same, everyone's always just trying to do the same thing so no one disturbs anyone else. The people who force their way onto the tube while people are still getting off are the main thing I have a problem with.

Oh my god I hate that so much. It's so fucking rude and just plain stupid.

It's funny when you get that one knob you tries to barge in, except the carriage is absolutely crammed full and EVERYONE is piling off, so they just get pushed to the back of the 'queue' by the stampede.

Pretty much. If you've got a brain and any sense the tubes are piss easy. I think the only way you could get lost would be if you couldn't read...


Did you know that each tube station had/has (can't remember if it's still like this) a different design / pattern in the tiles so people who couldn't read knew what station they were at.

Woke up in a sweat because of nightmares, and self-esteem has hit rock bottom.

Safer on the right so that you're on the inside on the way up and outside on the way down, so less likely to fall over the stair-rail :P

If there's a sign that specifically says "keep left", I reckon I'm gonna walk on the left mate.

Fucking chocolate exam! I had planned it all in my head and I thought it would go well, but the room was THIRTY SIX degrees so tempering the chocolate was making me sweat loads and giving me a headache, as well as the heat making the chocolate go out of temper so it was impossible to work with. We're meant to make a box out of chocolate with 12 identical moulded truffles, I managed a substandard box with 12 non identical broken truffles. Eugh.

Only you can make a "chocolate exam" sound lame :lol:
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Sure it sounds like something you'd do with Willy Wonka, but it's the most stressful thing ever! I never ever want to be a chocolatier.

I don't know how you can have the patience. If you saw the state of our Easter eggs using simple kids' moulds it might make you feel a bit better.

Tent is a fucking state. Great. This is why I hate it whenever anyone else uses it.

Nope, already bored shitless. I'm going for a walk.

And then even that will get old. Mates in the vicinity better come visit or I'll be sad.
