Mad that you mention this.

Came up in work last week when showing somebody a spreadsheet and I mention “collums” and he thought I was referring to a colleague by the name of Colm.

I’ve now started to pronounce it as Coll-yum

People who spend their lives criticising the so-called mainstream media, now raging that 'The Ditch' has been criticised.

Had some left over chicken from lunch in work, so i put it in the boot to bring it home to give to give to the dogs last Friday. Totally forgot about it over the long weekend and the car absolutely stank yesterday morning. Needed to put an air freshener in the boot.

Some milk spilled out in my boot and now my car smells like a fresh turd.   I scrubbed the boot with water and comfort fabric conditioner but the smell is still there.

Having to remember passwords for every little app or account with anything online.  I must have about 20 passwords and for the ones you only use once or twice a year I am always forgetting them and having to reset them.  eg. Ticketmaster when getting my EIRE tickets.



Truck drivers on motorways.   When one truck driver tries to overtake another truck but is they are going exactly the same speed and blocking both lanes. Eventually yer man overtakes after about 3km going 0.5 mph faster than the other truck.

There are secure apps for all of your passwords

On iPhone there is a keychain/password facility to store them

Every time I drive up the M1, I see this happen.

The price of postage. Almost cheaper to book a Ryanair flight to England and drop it off personally.
