Nuttier is definitely a word, but it reminds me of nutty stools. Even nuttier ones...

Reminds me of a joke. It was an Irish joke and I have no idea if you're allowed to tell those or not these days.

 

 

It depends. You're allowed to tell Irish jokes, Polish jokes, Welsh jokes, Australian jokes, Newfie jokes, Russian jokes, .... . However if you tell an Asian joke or a black joke you need to be Asian or black.

New car ready for pick up, and Mr E backing out of a carpark and an oncoming car smashing the rear corner off the old car being used as a trade in for the swap tomorrow.

Sigh...

In that vein - idiots who walk behind you when you are reversing as if they have no responsibility at all for their own safety.

And people who have the audacity to reverse when I am walking along minding my own business in a carpark!

Senecio:

 

I have a policy.

 

  • No agenda
  • No clear call-outs on what inputs are required from who
  • No objectives/outputs

Immediate decline. It changes people's behaviour quite quickly.

 

 

I do the same with phonecalls. Really cuts down on the BS.

That the book I have been waiting on from the library (since 1902) finally got returned, and the library didn't even fine the inconsiderate person who returned it so late. It's taken so long to get back, I accidentally heard a spoiler for how it ended!

You must be significantly older than you look if you've been waiting since 1902. Well done keeping yourself in such good shape :)

Geekzone keeps me young at heart (or is it ages me prematurely, I forget!).

The correct way to get the flavour powder properly distributed through the crackers is to to pound the inner plastic bag thoroughly with a rolling pin

 

 

Naah, that's what a giant clown hammer is for.

People who tell me that I am hard to get hold of, as if that is a problem that I should care about or try to make their lives easier when they refuse to email me.

 

"Your phone number doesnt work" - "I stopped using that one a year ago" - "Oh you didnt tell me" - "I know"
