Minor things that are currently doing your nut in


#1

The new version of word has a dialog box that says “All done. We made x replacements.” after doing a find and replace.

Fuck the fuck off with your “we”, Clippy & pals.


#2

Not being able to check into my flight because the website isn’t working.

Apparently I’ve now got to get to the airport early to do it in person.


#3

Shouldn’t have left it until the last minute


#4

The website’s been down since before I could check in.


#5

There’s a podcast I’m currently devouring on my commute. One of the hosts says “incantation” instead of “incarnation”. I thought it was a slip of the tongue the first time, but having listened to about 5 hours of content over the last 2 weeks, the word gets used surprisingly frequently and it’s clear the host just doesn’t know the difference between the two words. It’s reaching pacific/specific-levels of irritation.

What’s worse is that I know the guy IRL but bringing it up seems like a super-petty thing to do…


#6

Got a minor gripe with some prick who keeps making bulk edits to his blow-by-blow Netrunner match reports. Trying to be polite and collaborative to hide my frustration.


#7

Tell you what, working out you can amend formulas en-mass with this was a real high point of my year. I don’t mind the ‘We’. Team effort.

Share victory, share defeat.


#8

And don’t get me started on his Netrunner fan-fiction… There’s only so often you can find and replace “Jak Sinclair’s deck” with “Jak Sinclair’s huge deck”…


#9

“just a minute, we’re improving your skype experience”

no you’re not, you’re making me wait you fucking pricks


#10

Quite a lot of research going into this.


#11

Shouldn’t have flown with Aeroflot


#12

this one geezer texts me too much.

‘let’s do a thing on the 10th’
‘ok mate, text me later to confirm’
‘it’s definitely on bro’
‘ok cool’

‘yo mate, just checking we’re still on for the 10th’
‘yes mate ffs’


#13

He sends you 3 texts over a period of 2 weeks, and that is too much?

Wow.


#14

Cathay Pacific, innit?


#15

dunno where you’re getting two weeks from, but he’s not a mate, he’s someone i rent stuff/space from. he just constantly needs to reconfirm things we’ve already confirmed.


#16

He only reconfirmed once though. It is common practice to reconfirm a business meeting the day before, or early in the morning of the day you meet.


#17

friend who takes weeks to respond to texts becuase he’s ‘busy’


#18

listen, bro


#19

Skype is the biggest pile of bollocks. There’s always something wrong with it! Gaah.


#20

The Marketing woman can’t work Twitter. She’s retweeted a tweet I made yesterday. Such a shit bastard.
