Only one day after paying money I can't afford for a loo block caused by other half tipping left overs down the toilet, instead of putting them in the bin, I have just spend 2 hours unblocking a sink because he thought he could put half congealed fat down there instead :rolleyes:

If I don't do it myself, I might as well have done, for the grief it causes me. As if I don't have enough to do in the next 3 days ... :x

Shouldn't have been drinking before watching Harry Potter and the Deathly hallows part 1 for first time.

Dobby annoyed the fuck out of me. Superfluous character. The Jar Jar Binks of the HP series.

Kreacher summed up the house elf role perfectly. Dobby was just annoying.

MP3 player woes.

Nicki bought me a Kubik Evo with slot for sd card. Bought a 64gb card. Tried to format it via XP's (yeah, system's not good enough for 7 nor latest Ubuntu) formatter, but couldn't (tried to format in ex-FAT with an option for FAT32). Download one that works, then accidentally format the mp3 player itself.

There's no clear way to restore everything on Kubik's website, Googling leads to not much or dead threads from others looking for a similar download.

Now just spent 3 and a half hours transferring (slowly) 20gb of music onto the sd card, to discover the music player doesn't seem to want to acknowledge any music files on the card.

ProTip: Most removable storage you will buy these days don't need formatting.

Children are especially annoying at Christmas.

Some humans disgust me.

So midway through the show today I get a message from downstairs that someone has spilt a drink over the audience from the circle. I look across and there's a chavvy couple there with their kids, the 'dad' or whoever is drinking beer, fair enough, I think, he probably just did it by mistake.

After the interval I go up and there is a really strong smell of burnt beer (I know this because I happen to know what it smells like when you put beer on a sauna) it's gross. The only explanation is that now he's spilt/poured beer on a lighting fixture below.

Near the end of the show, during probably the busiest bit, his woman comes up to me, absolutely stinking of booze and asking if I can put in a 'birthday shout out'.
I said 'er no, how would I get a message to the actors on stage?' and she says 'oh no need to be so fucking rude'
I felt like literally slapping her in the face. Those poor kids.

Being blamed for something that couldn't possibly be my fault. Ffs. Hate this job sometimes.
