30 Things That Are Pissing Me Off Right Now



Around one third of this blog was supposed to be me ranting.  All it seems to have become is what have I done.

This is what is pissing me off currently:

1. The inaccurate name of this blog.
2. Pavement cyclists.
3. Mini-earthquakes when trying to sleep caused by doors being slammed.
4. Account managers.  Why does it take a year to get the average query resolved?
5. Half-trains.
6. People who don’t let others get off the train first.  It isn’t going to go without you, don’t be so fucking rude.
7. Gravy droughts.  My mother advises she cannot find my gravy in Hull.  I might stay in Reading for Christmas.
8. Career questions.  Do I try to get a more senior credit control job in London, with significant payrise so I can enjoy London life for a couple of years, take a significant pay-cut to get an entry job somewhere in the UK doing web development, or just continue in my comfortable but increasingly frustrating and boring job, with people I like working with/for?
9. Nigel Farage and the anti-EU/anti-immigrant brigade.  So you really want another Labour cockshafting government?
10. Immigrants.  Who do you think you are, coming over here and asking me to close the window?
11. Hot offices.
12. Knife Party.  Is there a more irresponsibly-named “music” act in the world?  I complained to their manager but unsurprisingly no response.  Cocks.
13. Unstraightened hair.  Some of the opposite sex look quite sexy with that ‘just got out of bed hairstyle’ but I don’t think my curly-end mullet is quite providing the sex-god look.
14. Payment cyclists
15. Being fat.  Why did I go on a massive food binge 2-3 years ago?  So, so bloody hard to lose weight.
16. No playlist.  I didn’t get time to make a Youtube playlist of new tracks to listen to this morning so am stuck with 15 new DJ sets I have downloaded.
17. Lack of musical inspiration.  I keep finding nice tracks but nothing is really exciting me over the last month or so.  The only really great track I have discovered in the last few weeks is from 1989.
18. JQuery.  That and JavaScript I really am finding very difficult to get my head around.
19. People who interrupt.  Learn the art of having a conversation and listening to people – it isn’t all about what you say.
20. Men who don’t wash their hands after using the toilet at work.  WTF?
21. Wet feet.  I bought new shoes from Clarks two months ago and they are already letting in the rain.
22. Pavement cyclists.
23. Rain.  It doesn’t look like the cold spell that was possible for the end of November will happen.  No real hope of cold then until the end of February into March.
24. Crapas.  I am still horrifically mortified with the worst possible tapas that I had in Belgium.  My love of Spain is over.
25. The Office Deodorant Strike.  At least two people seem to be refusing to wear deodorant.
26. Movember.  Is that still a thing?  Move on.
27. Anyone that even considers voting for the party that destroyed our economy, racked up a huge deficit, grew and encouraged a welfare dependency, went to war in Iraq, brought about the NHS Mid Staffs disgrace, sold our gold at record lows, knighted Fred Goodwin for services to banking, and so many other irresponsible destructive actions/inactions to our economy, society and country as a whole.  Unless they sit on their arses all day devouring benefits in which case I understand their decision.
28. Bashar al-Assad.  Probably the biggest arsehole currently alive in the world.
29. Sepp Blatter.  Bringing the beautiful game into disrepute.
30. Pavement cyclists.


I just need to decide what I am eating with my gravy tonight.
