Yes, disorganised, BUT there are groups of people who are regarded as 'at risk'. Those people have to have their jabs first, so 7th November may have been the earliest date the manager could get. And it's not that long after 20th October, when I *should* have had my jab. (I'm in an 'at risk' group, btw.)

Arghh! my response somehow got chopped. The first sentence should have read, 'Yes, your technical manager seems to have been lax or disorganised, BUT...'

I bet you, TC, that if we had an "incompetent management" and/or "idiot company" competition I'd wipe the floor with you smiley - rofl

Not being sleepy after coming in late, after a night out drinking and dancing with mates. I came in at 5. It is now twenty five to nine. IT'S A SUNDAY MORNING. Why am I not tired?!

PH II: finding out that Bruce Dickinson had a rock show (two of my passions, right there) but of course, it was on 6Music, and said show has been axed, rather cruelly. Why didn't I hear of that show sooner? It was going from 02! *grumbles*

PH III: when I put my camera's memory card into my laptop it doesn't do anything. It's meant to. Anyone any ideas? I'm supposed to be able to get the [photos off the card.

it's Saturday not Sunday smiley - winkeye (or are you talking generally?)

Ah, Bruce Dickinson smiley - loveblush

and for the card: restart the computer, then try again (don't forget to take the card out properly). Mine don't always work, so I bought a little card reader for not much money, which makes it into a sort of USB stick, and that works very well.

The Groob

PH: People bibbing their car horns outside people's houses at just after 7 in the morning because they're too lazy to get out and knock on the door.

Heh. Last Sunday the pre-midday quiet was shattered by some chinless smiley - bleep deciding that beeping his horn repeatedly and at length was an acceptable way of attracting his friends' attention instead of, say, calling them on their phones or just waiting patiently.

Sho: good morning my dear. Yes, sorry, i mean Saturday. Whatever day this is. I dunno. Point still stands! Ah, my card reader. That should do the trick.

Yes, Mr Dickinson: a hyper bundle of giggly goodness and down to earth, to boot! Gorgeous man. And he flies planes... *swoon* (and everybody wonders why I have a thing for men over 30...)

Another PH: being too lazy to get into the shower, but the shower here is horribly awkward (even though it’s adapted, what if someone couldn't raise their arm to hold the showerhead?), BUT you know you will see the guy you like on Monday and you particularly like wearing hats (but you will if needs must). Also, RE not being tired, having to walk to the local supermarket thing (up the road) and a few notebooks for my subjects. I'm too lazy.

PH II: drunk people. starting fights, or trying to. We have no beef. Go away. We’ll speak your language if you want, we’re learning- but can you speak mine? No, you cannot. Moot point you have, then. Go away.

PH III: early classes. WTF, WHY? I do not DO eight am if it means getting up at six. And it does. Ugh.

PH IV: having no make up remover.

Being woken an hour early by the cleaners. I don't think they realise sound carries, esp when it's quiet! Argh.

I live in student halls, of course we do, but cleaning my room... meh. Even worse is bleaching my cups. Terrified to drink from them no matter how good a rinsing I give em...

PH: the bloke sat at the next table in the pub who has spent the last 15 minutes constantly sniffing in snot from a runny nose, only breaking off to gag slightly when he sniffs too much.

Go Blow Your Nose!

Why thank you, Mr D! Please send my internetz to Poland posthaste. LOL. (Srsly, iTunes= Apple= aaarrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhh).

Pastey, oh god that’s disgusting...

PH: I have recordings to listen to. I couldn't be bothered. Where is my motivation, and my inspiration for that matter? Grrrr.

PH II: Justin Bieber.

I'm sorry but I can't see Justin Bieber as a "petty" hate. That's a full on rage hate I think.

At least for me.
