Planning a route

Planned it on computer using Google maps
Changed it as bollocks to riding along the canal with a bag of gaming stuff
Send to phone
Route on phone is the old one
Try to amend it
Phone wont let me
Phones screen is a bit of a censored
Also when the interest is on it it runs slow
Re-do route
Send to phone
Old route
Send via email
Old route
Try to do the route on the phone, phones screen is being a censored
Throw phone

Its not broke, but looking for a less arsy one

Sam Allerdyce on TV, a big grin on his fat face as he sits behind the wheel of his 4x4 with a new management job in the bag :roll:

Pretty sure if I was given the boot for corrupt activities or just general incompetence, I'd struggle to be re-hired in the same field of work somewhere else - especially THAT quickly. Football: it makes no sense.

Depressingly inevitable how one of the Old Boys Club walks into another job. Would be hilarious if they did get relegated though

People who make a big deal of New Year – all that happens 5 4 3 2 1 click then the calendar moves from 2016 to 2017.
If you have something important that you want to do then start now do not wait just censored start.

The celebrity deaths thread on here. The celebrity death bollocks on social media. The "celebrity" death utter arse in mainstream media. What a vacuous load of crap.

Guess what? There's more coming. Loads more. An endless stream of washed up hasbeens who made a few movies or made some records or did some trivial pointless crap on telly are all going to die because they're hitting that age range where the reaper does a lot of his business.

Enjoy.

On a celeb-related note, all of these TV shows that do one-off "celebrity specials", recycling the same idiots over and over. Noticed there were two Robot Wars specials on this week but they are celebrity editions with the likes of Robbie Savage and some kid from Rizzle Kicks (don't ask...) so I won't be bothering.

I don't see the point of these "celebrity" shows - I don't know who most of them are (well, I know who Robbie Savage is but he seems to be the most famous one mentioned)

To give z listers work and fill a time slot, most will do the show for next to nothing

Clear plastic bags
A lot of fresh food comes in them and I cant find a place that recycles them, my bin bag is mostly them, almost everything else gets picked up

microsoft decided to lock me out of my account

told them to send a code by email, they haven't sent it

filled out a form twice, they sent me an email to tell me that the information i provided "was not sufficient for [them] to validate your account ownership"

and now my email doesnt work on my phone, but strangely i can still view them on my computer

i am also left without skype

bastards :evil:

edit: i can also send emails too. but still no skype.

edit 2: ok i had to go into skype preview to fix it. still a pain in the arse.

Being told to "Take down the Christmas tree" then taking a few steps back to do a get a run up and being told "Not like that"

Not being able to get out of work ten minutes early because "Its a Klingon holiday" isnt a proper excuse

People that think that "Staying at home" on new years eve/day is sad

That horrible sense that life itself is working against you when pursuing something and continually being blocked by random circumstances out of your control.
