its m birthday today, and with the exception of my wonderful friend in california, all i got was a bunch of cards with money in them, i'd rather they kept it tbh, If my family cant even be bothered to get me a gift they know i'd like, or think about something i'd like, then why bother? 

At least you got money.  I didn't even get that for my birthday.  My family couldn't even inconvenience themselves enough to write a cheque but then what did I expect from people who don't want me to name them as next of kin as they don't want the inconvenience if anything happened to me

The only kind of presents hubby and I get from my brother and S-I-L are gift cards for every single birthday and Christmas.  Birthdays are to a value of $25.00 and Christmases are to a value of $50 i.e. $25.00 per person.  Its been like that for the last 8 yrs.

Perhaps I'm an ungrateful child, but I would really, really rather have a gift card than some of the truly horrible things my Mother has given me over the years 

Why does she think I would like a bright blue velour hat?  I've never worn such a thing in my life!

I'm sorry Wilkie, but PMSL

I'm glad the hat has brought pleasure to someone!  

There's a matching scarf...

Slow news day yesterday....

Well, we came up with a solution - we give giftcards back to them!!

I used to get so stressed out about Birthday and Christmas shopping for those two, and go to a LOT of trouble to look for things they would like.  Now I don't bother, gave up as they don't go to any effort for us.

So, its gift cards all the way....

In the supermarkets over here, there is a whole wall of gift cards for absolutely anything you can think of.  You can do your weekly shop and thrown in gift cards - it really takes the thinking out of present giving.

God that is a nice cup of green tea, well done me!

Coffee woman. OK so you didn't mean to spill coffee grinds all over the counter at work, but you could have wiped it up properly, instead of making a half arsed attempt using your hand, which resulted in some over the floor and lots left on the counter. It wouldn't be so bad, but the cleaner had literally only just finished cleaning the kitchen. She hadn't even made it off the floor yet before you came along!

I am in a marathon on Sunday that rumour has it I planning a minutes silence for the victims of the Boston bombing.

I get it, they were runners/watching running but I don't hold a minutes silence for victims of Israeli bomb victims everytime I am at a bus stop or for ferry passengers when I see the sea. Stop now, this mawkish fascination has gone on to long, why do people rush to make a connection with victims of these events? After the London Bombings all the "and just five days before I was stood four blocks away" stories I heard. Utter bollocks.

I'll be stood on the start line wearing cheaply made sportswear from some sweatshop (no pun intended) sewn together by 8 year olds but I guarantee nobody is banging on about the affinity they feel for the 800 odd Bangledeshi victims of the building collapse because they shop in Primark.

And more importantly the itch just out of reach on my shoulder is driving me nuts

OK, so you know the task in hand is so big that you've had to hire additional people to help us get it done.

You also know that there are glitches that need fixing before we can sign the work off.

So why this badgering to do additional bits and pieces of less urgent work and get numerous trackers (which take us away from the actual work) filled in so it "looks like" we are making progress?

We are not, it is taking time and you know the reasons why. Why not just report the truth back to your masters i.e. that it will take as long as it fecking well takes.

Dear colleague: re that thing you asked me to do....remember we have a meeting at 4.15 and I leave at 5

I'm not staying behind late to do it so you'd better get on and send it to me...

PS: I don't take being bossed around from my actual boss so I'm certainly not going to take it from you.

Wishes her brother wasn't married to such a possessive, self-absorbed, insecure and selfish trollope.

NO I DO NOT WANT TO PLAY CANDY FUCKING CRUSH YOU STUPID BORED STUPID BRAINLESS STUPID VAPID STUPID BINT!

Now kindly stop sending me FB requests to do so as it's beginning to bug my inner peace.

You can block the requests CD

Can everybody please calm down? A football manager has retired, that's all. He didn't find a cure for cancer or achieve world peace and his achievements, while impressive, only really matter to Man Utd fans.

Thank you.
