Which reminds me of something else that irritates me in the modern working world - the long lost tradition that is POETS day.

It's already 4pm here.

The sun is shining

I'm meeting an old friend for a beer/pizza this evening

I'm only waiting around as I have a 4.30 conference call with the States.

After that . . . . I'm OUTTA here ! (so to speak).

COYRRI on Sunday, make it a good weekend for us all.

Went into Sainsbury's tonight to buy someone a St. Georges day card.
They don't exist, apparently.

Some bird (feathered) whose song only consists of two notes. Wonder what brand it is?
Just sounds like a worthless, squeaky wheelbarrow.

Feel your pain here, some complete and utter clustercunt from New York has booked in an hour long, weekly conference call at 18:30 BST.

Every Thursday evening everyone buggers off down the pub while soppy b*llocks here has to listen to someone chatting for the sake of chatting. On the plus side I have been told she is very fit and she thinks the sun shines out of my aris, could be promising.

Both of those plus sides will inevitably wrong.

Was going to say, being told she is very fit & you thinking that she is very fit, could be two, very different things..

I have just realised that I'm so uninterested in football and West Ham this season that I don't know the correct pronunciation of Jordan Hugill's surname - is is Hug-ill, Hyoo-jill. Hoo-gill or something else? A little thing that depresses me that I care so little.

On asking what they were doing there, it turned out they were the staff on the phone-sex lines run out of the office downstairs.

Got something two-notish going on outside me apartment right now. Taking ages to say what it wants to say. Probably Eff off my territory mate and do you want a shag darlin''? Been some heavy rainfall today so the farm next door is flooded so wonder if it isn't a toad. Sounds like it. 'Cept I don't think they've got toads round here. Recall birdsong that sounded like a 'rusty wheelbarrow' in East Africa, which ain't too far away from here.

Found an extra 500 sovs in my bank account, called the bank as this sort of malarky can seriously **** up your credit rating. told them there was a bank giro credit for 500 that I knew **** all about
The response was "Meh, don't worry about it"

My son has the same about 7 years, ago , went into the bank to say that the cash was not his and there was some sort of mistake, they said it was laundered money and promply black balled him and closed his account

can't see this ending well, but have put the 500 away for when the person who ****ed up wants it back

Banks - bunch of ***** the lot of them

The London marathon - same every year, the field is 99% white, but they put black men at the front. How is that fair? No wonder they always win :(

Went to a BBQ yesterday. Was well oiled when I turned up and the missus and her daughter were there. Immediately I'm accosted by them both, almost crying saying there's a woman here who's a Pug breeder and that she has the last puppy here with her today. And yes, they want it. However, it's not cheap and they want me to go halves with them. Cue the next three hours constant pleading, making me hold this puppy and telling me how practical it will be to have a Pug in our lives. Eventually, against my better judgement I relent. They're now over the ****ing moon that they're we're getting a Pug. I've been reading up on them and they're renowned for their snoring and flatulence. Great, so that's two of us in the house with this problem and I'm not including myself in that equation either.
The only good thing about it is that I ruled out a family holiday if we got it and the dog so I have to be thankful for small mercies.

They've called the dog Percy by the way.

**** my luck.
