    Oh, I'm sure it will be fine, but I won't spend the money until it sorts itself out. In the unlikely scenario that the money actually leaves my account, I'm fucked when the bills come out this weekend (if I actually book a holiday).

    I'm not too worried. Just pissed off that it took a lot of time to decide where to go, fight with a broken website and at the end of it all, I end up in an annoying situation.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Fuck! I just scratched and dented my car a bit. Only got it in April (though second hand). The bloody thing isn't even a year old and I ballsed it up. I was exiting my street, when a guy entering decided to cut the corner, leaving me very little room. I managed to hit a food recycling bin with my back door of all things. It was sticking out onto the road further than the other bins, and I just hadn't realised quite how far out it was or how much tighter a line the rear of the car was taking. :(

    Not sure whether to sort it or leave it.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    If you have a little spare money I'd sort it. It'll only get worse if it rusts and it'll REALLY piss you off.

    Speaking from experience.

    Yeah, I need to give it a good clean to see if it's penetrated the paint.

    For some reason I just watched Redfoo's performance of "Ridiculous" (which just hit #1) on X-Factor.
    This guy is the distillation of everything that's wrong with music.
    Insipid, vacuous aural vomit that occupies the same dimension of abrasively idiotic shite as Black Eyed Peas' "I Got A Feeling".
    I hope he dies.
    Well, not really... that would just increase his popularity. I hope he fades into obscurity.

    Why do people in this office not put the full pack of paper in the printer? Do they think it is a coincidence that every paper manufacturer sells paper in the exact same size packs and every office printer has the same size paper tray which just happens to match the pack size of every paper company? Idiots

    That's only true of certain weights of paper. You wouldn't fit a full ream of 140gsm in most bog standard printers.

    True, but we have never ever ever used anything other than bog standard paper in bog standard printers. These people certainly won't have been aware of what gsm of paper is, let alone judged the amount of paper to put in based on the weight, they are just stupid. In my head the point stands!!

    Graaaahhhh!
    Having your savings spread across different banks is a pain in the arse when it comes to remembering multiple sets of security info.
    I know it protects my money, but it's protecting it from me as much as for me!
    I need to transfer some money from my Cash ISA but can't remember the myriad security codes so now I have to get new ones posted out, which could easily take 5 days.
    Maybe I will have to join the grey generation and have it written down somewhere...

    Not as nice as I used to be

    I think what you're having there is referred to as a first world problem.

    @Alastair egg.com (now ybs.co.uk) have a Money Manager section where you can enter the login details for most major banks. You only need to remember one login then, obv. you need a ybs account ;)

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    The Jack White scene is my favourite one.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    Did they clearly outline what was acceptable? Did they outline a plan to help you improve and monitor performance? Just for your own sake they kind of need to do that before any disciplinary process for improvement should begin.

    Hopefully it won't but ya know, worth bearing in mind.

    There is some real crap in retail banking. "Make sure the next Custer doesn't leave without being signed up for a loan"

    Building societies aren't too much better.

    Thank fuck I got out of the branch and into IT even if it is just service desk just now.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    People using the term "box sets" when they actually just mean a series.

    "I watched a whole box set of (insert the latest American dross) last weekend on my Sky recorder"

    South African rugby team. Useless fucking cunts who can't tackle to save their lives.

    Cunts.
