Finish work, drains are blocked outside. Manhole sides had collapsed blocking my drains had to shovel shit clear it all away, still part I can't access blocked because the bastard who done my house up decided to cement  the grid in place, mostly sorted but probably still need to call someone out. Finished it, get cleaned up, sit down pissed off, turn the TV on and its broke. I'm not liking 2020 so far.

I've just spent a few weeks back in Aus in my own house. Some sort of critter had been in in and scattered stuff all over the place.  Ride on mower had cancer of the fuel lines, brush cutter (heavy duty strimmer) fucked,  computer died, water pump and controller (only tank water at home) shit itself.

Only one solution - hop on the plane back to Nam  and hope for bushfire/tornado/cyclone to fix it.

Volume difference between  talking and sound effects on TV. I can't hear what they're saying so I turn it right up and then there's an explosion and I have a heart attack. I've forever got the remote in my hand adjusting the volume level. I'm sure I've brought this one up before but it's a major first world problem.

If I watch something on Kodi I have to turn the volume right up. Just before Xmas I'd watched a film on it then gone to bed. Woke up the next morning , put the telly on and walked away. Fucking thing came on mid-advert some proper loud bastard I actually ran into the kitchen. Fucking shit myself.

The insufferable lack of urgency with which Southern Europeans do anything. 

 

Had to get something in the newsagent. Gave myself 25 minutes before work. Some dimwitted cunt is in their playing 20 questions re types of paper.

 

Buy something, quickly, then fuck off.

That reminds me of a few German Sports channels on normal TV before the birth of streaming etc. I'd be watching some late night sport when they would suddenly go to adverts which were always of the Adult variety, some bird groaning and saying call me for this, that and the other, and always loud as fuck compared to the volume on the normal programming. Cunts.

You got caught red handed or should I say gland handed, didn't you?

Nope, missus walked in once and said 'What the fuck are you watching' which then led to a later night than I had planned. It just pissed me off at the time as if you fell asleep whilst watching some late night sport you were abruptly awoken by some groaning banshee and scrambling around in an effort to find the remote control in a hurry. These days it doesn't really matter, everyone is used to sex on the TV, even adverts have women with their jugs out, and loads of programmes you watch has some sexy scene in it regardless of the time of day, many are nothing short of soft porn. Not that I'm whinging about it like, just those late night adverts really cheesed me off.

Every time I put socks away or get socks out of my sock drawer, when I close it there's always a bit of sock poking out.

 

Boils my fucking piss.

Simply throw half your socks away.

Fanny candles.

I can't help thinking that Gwyneth Paltrow is trying a bit too hard to convince people that her snatch smells of geraniums, bergamot and cedar (instead of stinking like a rotten old chum bucket).

Dealing with utility companies. What a fucking joke!

 

Every year without fail united utilities tells me they're increasing my monthly payments on my water to almost double and every year I have to phone and tell them the fuck they are. I always end up in credit on the relatively small sum I pay. 

 

Now British Gas have joined the list of pricks that want me to bank with them. They have recently doubled my direct debit, despite me being in credit again this year. I cannot reduce the amount because their online system won't have it. A call to their advisors and me offering to meet them halfway has them asking me if I've considered pre payment (the fuck) I've never owed them a penny, have always been in credit. Finally they ask if I can be transferred to the 'ability to pay' team. 

 

I decided a much simpler method than dealing with the fuckwits was to tell them to shove it (politely of course, I'm never rude to call centre staff, sarcastic and often condescending yes but never rude) I went on to my bank account and cancelled my direct debit. All done with no fuss and no bother. 

 

We can go back to them sending me a bill and me paying it by cheque, the wankers. The monthly payments can go into my savings account and earn 0.0000001% interest and set me up nicely for retirement in 5035
