Royal weddings.

Or, 'cos I don't mind Wills and Kate getting hitched and more power to them (in a figurative sense): everyone and their granny jumping on the royal wedding bandwagon in order to sell tat or use up airtime.

Anything that starts "To celebrate the royal wedding, we're offering..." sets my teeth on edge.  Too obviously translates as "This has bugger-all to do with any wedding.  We just want you to give us your money."

Mini's from wargames factory. Does have to cross an ocean, but things usually only take about 7 working days to arrive from the UK to halfway around the world with just budget airmail postage. I'll just be patient, it's not an unusual time to wait to be honest.

With all of the commotion that has been going on at WF, I would just be glad to receive them at all!  I would expect a certain amount of delay due to the backlog they had to clear post the take-over.

people taking the p**s.  give someone an inch and they run with a f*****g mile and then moan cos they got caught.

people chasing an order placed on thursday morning (day before bank holiday) and then asking why it isnt in France yet on BH monday...hey forget about the fact that it is easter weekend and the whole country has stopped

when you help someone out and they dont even have the manners to say "thank you"

being taken for granted, assuming that it will be okay to do 'x, y , z' simply because i usually turn a blind eye and give a bit of leeway .. well guess what, no more leeway

A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

You think you've got it bad...we had to go through all this rigmaorle last year when Crown Princess Victoria got married...and now there's every sign that the Swedish media - whose lust for petty gossip tops even the redtops (though in fairness, the journalism doesn't sink to quite the same depths) - are gearing up to give us a full week of uninterrupted Wills n' Kate.

TBH I think they're just POd that he didn't choose Princess Madeline of Sweden (who is a looker, but doesn't give the impression of being the brightest young woman around.)

They did say on their website they had cleared the backlog of orders. There plastics are pretty cheap though so if it doesn't turn up it's not a big loss.

neighbours, don't know which ones but I have my suspicions, that use my rubbish bin to fill up with their rubbish. Wouldn't mind if they asked, but a bit of politeness goes a long way. Think I've ranted about this before.

Time for a booby trap me thinks... make the bin into a giant jack-in-a-box. That should give them second thoughts

electrify it with a car battery..., or rig it so that something makes a huge noise when they open it, or do what a co-worker did when something kept making a mess inside and outside his house.  Set up a camera to take a pic every 30 seconds or so.  In his case it was raccoons coming in the cat door.

It could be racoons, I checked what was in the bin as I had more stuff to put in and saw that it was stuff that should have been left out for recycling. We all know that racoons are the laziest recyclers in the world. Hmmm now where is the nearest zoo with racoons to me, they've got some splainin to do.

Having all my details stolen from the PlayStation network including *possibly* my debit card details and purchase history etc.  :swear:

Sony took over a week to decide to divulge this info to it's users... Oh wait I mean divulge this info if you happen to be following the PlayStation Blog or reading 3rd party gaming sites, still haven't had any official emails or anything.  :applause:  :roll:
