My wife's parents buying tickets to Strictly Come Dancing for my wife and eldest daughter, which means they're out all day, and I have to burn my precious saturday looking after my 18 month old daughter. WTF am I going to do with her?

Rhyming psycho with psycho is just piss-poor writing.
Couldn't you think of ANY other word?


There's the electronics company Tyco, but that might be hard to weave into the narrative. Beyond that, I'm struggling.


EDIT: I have no idea who she/he/they is and I've never heard the song, so if I've missed a joke.....

Didn’t Ryan f*ck his brother’s wife or something?

My home broadband isn't working. We phoned up about it and they told us it's due to a fault outside the property and that an engineer would be out in 2 - 4 days but in the mean time, would we like to enter into a new 18 month contract?

^ The WIFI router sky sent me for my broadband is totally useless outside of a 2 metre radius. You don't get value for money on anything any more.

Doctors surgery again and their antiquated phone system that doesn't put people on hold but gives an engaged tone so you have to keep trying over and over and over and hope to get lucky. We didn't, despite 143 attempts in the space of 30 minutes from 8 to 8:30 yesterday morning.

The missus then had to take the baby to the walk in centre in Harold Wood, where she spent 5 hours waiting to be given some antibiotics for tonsillitis.

Surely there's a better way to do all of this?

There is - doesn't your surgery use PatientAccess for bookings?

On the theme of doctors, I was lucky enough to get in this morning, because when I woke I could hardly hear anything.
I know that it's compacted wax because I've suffered from it a few times. Get the lugs syringed and it's all fine and dandy.
'Oh,we don't do that now. You have to put olive oil in for four weeks.'
When she said 'four', I was expecting the next word to be 'days'!
