Makes packaging easier.
But the joy of tearing the join of a handful.

Is this a euphemism?

What the f**k is the obsession old people have with 'clearing out their cupboards'? Every week I speak to my old dear and she is always clearing out her f**king cupboards. I've seen her cupboards- they usually contain 3 tins of soup and a tin of evaporated milk!
Unless the whole 'clearing out my cupboards' is a euphemism. And what she actually means is she was taking a shit before I phoned her?

Me: hello existing fuel supplier, I have seen a tariff of yours on a comparison site that looks good?
Fuel supplier: ah yes. You qualify for that deal.
Me: so can you put me on it?
Fuel supplier: No. You need to use the switching site to do that.
Me: even though it is one of your tariffs? It’s on your website, I can see it and have the tariff details from your website.
Fuel supplier: you need to use the switching site
Me: But I am not switching, I would be staying with you.
Fuel supplier: sorry you need to use the switching site
Me: but if I have to go through that grief of registering on a switching site and the like surely I would pick another supplier who is a little cheaper than your offering.
Fuel supplier: you need to go use the switching site
Me: that’s insane. But okay then.

Go to switching site. Chooses cheaper option.

Bloke in Tesco earlier talking loudly on his hands-free wandering through the aisles. He went ‘that’s the way it goes mate.’

I counted a beat and then came the inevitable ‘it is what it is.’

"Driving home for Xmas" by Chris Rea. It's hurtling towards us like a thundering juggernaut. There's no escape.

Time to dig out an old thread

Hal Low 13-11-2019 02:29 PM

Dishwasher salt containers. Why located at the back instead of the front ?

Hal Low 13-11-2019 02:37 PM

It's normal to use 'So' to ask a question but the new habit of using 'So' to answer a question is mildly irritating.

"So, when did it become acceptable to use 'So' as the introduction to an answer?"

"So, it's probably in the last couple of years that it's become common"

"So, is it used in that way mainly by young people?"

"So, yes"

"So - there we have it !"
