  • When you are waiting to cross a road, but there's a car blocking your route between pavements because he's waiting to pull out at the junction.
  • So you walk round the back of his car and he pulls away.
  • You're now blocking the car that was waiting behind him.
  • So you do a nervous walk/run from the knees down and a quick wave and mouth "sorry mate"

strawberry floating happened to me twice this morning.

My 2 year old lost his mobile phone last night and spent hours crying and saying “need my phone, need my phone, need my phone!”

Lewis... don't do the walk/run bit, dude. Stride out confidently! As a pedestrian you have a right to cross the road and, if you're crossing in a reasonable manner, vehicles do not have right of way. They'll have to slow down - perhaps even stop - whilst you cross. In this case, they've already stopped and, by seeing you crossing, the driver of the second vehicle should cheerily wave you across before advancing.

Of course, most drivers will instead glare / shout / toot but... strawberry-float 'em.

I just realised that I forgot to take the chicken and bacon pasta my wife cooked the other evening out of the freezer this morning, so she'll have to cook me something else this evening :(

Has the world changed THAT much that a two year old has a phone?! Or is your kid extremely spoilt?

Since posting the above I’ve been waiting for somebody to say that. :lol:

It’s my wife’s old phone, it doesn’t have a SIM, can’t connect to wi-fi and is rarely even charged up. He just likes playing with it and it keeps him away from our proper phones.

This is very good that it's not real. 2 years olds would just post Instagrams of their dumps.

When he does manage to get hold of my phone, he does know how to do a selfie. I sometimes look at my photos and find some interesting snaps that he must have taken. :lol:

The battery on my Bluetooth headphones died this morning on my way to work so I had to sit in silence on the train.

Worth bringing this back from the dead for this heartbreaker.

The contactless feature on my debit card has caused it to be rejected the past couple of times, forcing me to have to put my pin in like someone from the dark ages :(

The card reader was playing up at the checkout in Sainos the other day so I had to physically sign a piece of paper in order to complete my purchase.

I was so badly affected by the situation that I had to sit down, take several deep breaths and create an Instagram story about the experience.
