That it took my broadband provider ten days to get a new router to me due to them failing to send it out twice.

There was a lot more incompetence to it but I cannot even be bothered to go in to it at the moment.

Indeed, how do those scruffy working class oiks get along in their squalid little houses with a patch of grass to call a garden?

Ordered a used Hori Switch controller from Amazon Warehouse. When it arrived today I was surprised to see the original box was included, and then I opened the box to find an Xbox controller. :roll:

Football taking over regular TV, even channels that are not showing it are affected.

People moaning about footy taking over TV, its not the 80's with 4 channels. You have tons to watch, tons to watch online and as seen by the audience for the last England game its way more popular than the other censored on TV ! Its nearly over and its once every 4 years

Watch one of the other 480 channels ;)

More like 80 actual TV channels on freeview and most of those are either shopping or channels showing old programs from the 80's. Possibly leaving 8 or so with anything ever worth watching.

Nobody noticing Wimbledon is on because of the football.

Who scheduled those two at the same time, and who decided footie would be the one to cover on every possible media channel and public space?

I accidentally stumbled on the tennis while flicking over from the constant football on other channels.
