Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Driving in the ****ing rain today, got flashed to get out of the way, not once but twice by different cars.

First one was by some girl in her Fiat 500, I was doing 65 and driving to the conditions, I hope the cop car with its blues and two's that passed me a short while later was after her.

Then some tosser in his blue Porche did the same on the M25, I was in lane 2, the outside lane was clear.

It's Sunday, why do you need to get somewhere so fast, in such **** weather
We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
Make everyday count
RIP Reeder - Jolly Green Giant and comedy genius

Recruiters who expect you to change your plans to suit them. No, I cannot attend an interview today at 1pm, I have a delivery coming I have to sign for, I've been waiting for it for over a week and no I am not going to re-schedule it as it's already on the way from the depot according to a text I got earlier. If I get accepted you will make a lot of commission from me for very little work so get on the phone and see if they can do 4pm instead which works fine for me. I still have a life when I'm between contracts and I am not just sitting here ready to go in suit and tie waiting for the phone to ring!

4pm now confirmed as fine for the client so all is now calm again.
We are the Goon Squad and we're coming to town, BEEP BEEP!
