    Went out for a best friend's birthday bash (44) on Saturday night. There are 8 of us guys who all grew up together and have pretty much know each other since we were 10.

    Therefore it's inevitable that were are just going to absolutely take the piss out of each other without mercy. All well and good as we do this pretty much every time we see each other, which is on a fairly regular basis.

    When someone who we hardly know starts chipping in and starts taking the piss in a similar manner then it's just not on. I knew something was going on but it wasn't happening near me and I only found out about it last night. Not only does his not have the right to do this but he was apparently saying these things in a snide manner.

    It's a good job we didn't hear this (he was outside having a smoke) otherwise he would have been politely been asked to "fuck off and never come back!". Anyway, the mate's who's birthday it was, has not been aware of this and the number of times we see this other guy is rare at best.

    I know there's a lot of history between us etc. but we're very accepting if

    1. You're not a dick
    2. You've got something interesting to say

    Unfortunately, this guy fails on both criteria. He seems like the kind of guy who want to establish his "authority" on things. Well, that's never going to work with us. At all.Ever.

    Anyhow, despite this cunts bests attempts, it was a fucking fantastic evening.

    If you replace 2us guys" with "Us girls" and "him" with "her", this could be a mumsnet post.

    Grr...!!!!

    You get the time signed off work, you book the holiday and you let the person who does the on-call rota know that you're not able to do that week.

    So, what happens? He puts you on anyway!

    I'm sure someone else will cover it but it's extremely annoying all the same.

    Surely it's out of your hands now? That person made the mistake, it's their job to fix it now. You're free to go wherever you like on holiday since it's signed off. That said, if he hasn't noticed I'd probably give him a heads up so he has time to change it. Unless he's not a nice person, in which case just keep it to yourself.

    We appear to have a crow that likes pecking our tv aerial at 5-6 am for the last few weeks. It keeps waking me up thinking someone is knocking at a door or in the house, until it caws and I wake enough to realise the noises are coming from our roof.

    Do you think it would count as animal cruelty to get a big ladder and leave our cat on the roof for a few days to sort this out? ;)

    I cannot believe that people think of prawn and shrimp as fish. The fact that they are not fish was obvious to me from the age of five or six. Why are people so fucking stupid?

    And if you are that stupid then don't get all pissed off with me because I've pointed out that what you are eating is closer to eating flies than it is to eating cod.

    Smartphones are shit.

    They do more than what we need them to do.

    We spend too much time configuring them to get the most efficient use.

    Amount of times I've rebooted this stupid jailbroken iPhone, 'sake.

    Fair play, that has to be one of the strangest things I've seen someone rant about around here.

    Why are authorities in Berkshire so absolutely fucking useless?

    Missus eldest daughter violent to her and younger sister. Arrested when lived with dad for violence, social services went remove her until she smashes up the house or seriously hurts someone. Social worker told the girl that!

    Attacked mother and younger sister tonight, police won't arrest her because she is 13 even though she now has previous and is honestly a danger.

    Ambulance called because youngest has been hyperventilating since 6:30 still not arrived

    Yeah, I almost put it Random Musings, but it definitely comes from the 'rant' part of my brain. I think it might have something to do with people trying to pass shellfish off as fish when I was a child, and me setting them the fuck straight before they ignored me and continued trying to force me to eat something I didn't want.

    Then another layer of WTF was added when it became apparent that quite a lot of people are too stupid to tell the difference between invertebrate and vertebrate. 'It lives underwater, it must be a fish.' Fucking idiots.

    I think shrimp are regarded as shellfish in cooking. That has the word fish in it. That the closest link I can think of, and even that is a stretch.

    They are totally shellfish the way they want to be put in last and everything and have high demands.

    Having a generally shit week.
    Car is busted in need of expensive repair.
    My throat has been sore for 6 weeks. Paid a doc to have it looked at. "It's a viruys. Nothing to do about it"

    Massive fucking headache today AND I've pulled a muscle in my left shoulder.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Try these herbs in a tea for your sore throat. (Not all of them at once of course ;))

    Chamomile
    Fenugreek seeds
    Juniper
    Golden rod
    Marigold flowers
    Marjoram
    Marshmellow
    Mulleinn
    Raspberry leaves
    Sage
    Silverweed
    Tormentil

    Or the popular [real] Lemon juice and honey.

    Fuck you social networking.

    Was just looking for my saved searches on ebay to no avail. Apparently they're now "Followed Searches". No you fucking wankers, I would not like to follow a search, I'd like to save it for later.
