MikeB4:

The doesn't really annoy me but slightly irritates me. When the medication I am receiving makes my hair disappear just in time for winter. Oh well I wont need to carry a comb.



I love side effects. Not. I take 9 tablets daily and then have perpetual blood tests to make sure they aren't killing me in some other way!

Great. /S

Blood tests. After taking travel time and wait in a queue etc into account, it turns a little prick into a >30 minute timesink.

Plenty of people I know have this effect, but the only friend I have who's a phlebotomist is just fine.

Men's underwear. Any guesses what I was given this Easter?

 

 

Not so long ago you could go down to the shops and buy a dirt cheap pair of briefs. Now everything has gone all metrosexual and fancy with huge elastic straps and exotic fabrics that feel soft to the touch. Nothing beats the good old cotton for smelly sweaty areas!

freitasm: I didn't know Easter was gift exchange time anyway. You are lucky.

 

 

They're not thoughtful gifts like birthdays, just a way to get things done. E.g. "Here's some new socks/underwear to replace the ones I've been telling you to throw out for the past six months".

That even during holidays when commercials cannot be shown, FTA broadcasters persist in pointless interruptions of films and whatever else is being shown. Are they afraid that people may actually discover that TV is better without all the screaming ads?

For the "benefit" of those of us that didn't even bother reconnecting the aerial after moving the TV, what sort of interruptions are we talking about?

A yellow mini with flags flying which was only doing 80km/h until the passing lane where it was driven at a speed of 100km/h. Once it got to the Kapiti expressway it was able to do 105km/h when I was passing it in the other lane.

I don't watch much NZ TV, but I do dip in from time to time. There is something hypnotically fascinating about watching the death throes of a dying dinosaur.

In the "dumb" department, I was playing an old Xbox game last night (The Last Remnant) and my controller batteries ran low. I discovered that the game will unpause itself the moment you take the batteries out. Of course, it happened during a very difficult boss fight...

The Warehouse Online System!

 

Once again I get an email titled "Your items are on their way"

 

Problem is it SHOULD say "SOME of your items are on their way"

 

There are only 4 of 11 items.

 

...and they haven't even sent them yet, as the tracking shows "Label Printed"!!

 

Not: Ready to Send OR Picked Up!

ASB Internet banking.

 

 

 

Filled out the reference fields as part of making a one off payment, then realised that I hadn't yet entered the account number. As soon as I move the cursor to the 1st account number field, everything that I had typed into the reference fields got deleted.

 

More time wasted having to retype and recheck the 6 reference fields.
