I got an email from a letting agent within 30 minutes of having sent it. Would have been remarkable if it was a repair request.

I had an absolutely beautiful email containing a spam comment on a small WordPress site/webshop that I run for someone I know. I get these at least on a weekly basis but something about this just stood out for me. (Keep in mind the website isn’t even in English and there’s very little content on it outside of the relatively small shop section, and super basic WP layout)

Wow, amazing weblog layout! How lengthy have you ever been blogging for?
you make blogging glance easy. The whole glance of your site
is excellent, let alone the content material!


Copied in on this lively and frank exchange.

13:29 Person A: "Can you confirm the numbers please?"
13:48 Person B: “Yes, I can confirm the numbers.”

Just had an ‘Office Safety Communication’, which was basically what to do if there’s a fire alarm.

During any type of evacuation please remember the following:

  • Leave by the nearest/safest escape route/exit
  • Report to the designated fire assembly point
  • Wait for your name to be called out as part of the roll call process
  • ​Never re-enter the building until instructed to do so by the Site Emergency Coordinator

Yeah, thanks for that. Thought I’d just sit at my desk and burn.


there are two big screens in this room and BOTH are being used to broadcast jokes at my expense.

1 X some out-of-context quotes attributed to me
1 X doctored photo of me (won’t say what)

At least I get respect on this forum.


I have now received a second email saying that the recycling arrangements will not, in fact, be changing.

Think I might need to head home early to recover.

I sit next to a normal bin and a recycling bin.
The amount of people who don’t even recycle a paper bag is ASTONISHING.

I don’t get people who can’t recycle. Legitimately it takes you a few seconds to figure out where it goes. I guess maybe they’ll get the last laugh if/when it turns out that recycling makes absolutely no difference and we’re all going to die anyway.
