*g* Endless Brexit. Scary to see what 'serious' politicians are able to.



Also scary how much "the Establishment" can exert it's will to interfere....

Finding five copies of the same circular in my letterbox. I guess the deliverer had to dump them somewhere.

I check mine on recycling day, since I have the bin there with me ready to put all that stuff into.

 

 

Seems an absurd waste of paper printing that crap but someone must read it I guess.

Ge0rge: Folks who ride the Wairarapa train and get on in Wellington and place their bag on the seat beside them who then pack a sh!t when asked to move it so others can sit.


 


It's worse than that. My wife, who catches that train almost every day of the working week, tells me that some of the more self-centred regulars actually consider that particular seats on particular carriages are 'theirs' and will get visibly irritated if they find some third party sat in that seat when they arrive on the train!



I would take delight in deliberately sitting in ‘their seat’ just to p them off.

Our mail goes to a PO Box.

 

Next to the rows of boxes is a recycle bin. You can watch people open their box, remove the mail, separate the junk circulars and drop them straight in the bin before leaving the box area.

 

It has to be among the biggest wastes of paper in New Zealand.

Staying in hotels and motels over the past few days, and being unable to get out of my head the story (hopefully *urban myth) that some fellow travelers use the kettle to launder their underwear.

 

*Google is not my friend when trying to find out about this.

At only $9 at the warehouse I would just buy my own kettle if I had the need for hot water and didnt trust the motel one.

The fact that my bank won't save payees for electronic transactions in a way that allows me to pay them again from any of my accounts.

 

The payee must be loaded separately for each account. Maddening and utterly pointless.

My wife does exactly this daily on her commute - almost should go in the "smile" thread instead!

There are some questions that it is best not to know the answer to.  :-/

Might actually be quite cool to have a couple of tardigrades in yer jocks - they seem 'armless enough.
