You have a scolding hot drink on the table near your child and have to leave the lid off if you want it to reach a drinkable temperature before midnight. I place it as safe as poss, but it'd be much better if it wasn't a volcanic temp to begin with.

I remember that case. Normally I'm against the sort of litigation when you think the customer should have been more careful themselves, but in my experience Macs does feel a few degrees hotter than necessary.

And had their coffee been just a few degrees cooler, her injuries would presumably have been reduced too.

Got 3 hours for a lunchtime nap though.

My wife, in fact the only reason I don't kill her is because I'd miss her

I used to be a reasonably patriotic person but if I never hear the National Anthem again,
I won't be at all bothered.
The Australian Baseball League Week 8 game Melbourne vs Perth...really?

Certain people living in the middle of nowhere, 3 miles from a train station. Just why?

It's when you here it before every bloody semi major horse race that gets me. I know I live in Australia I don't have to the second worse anthem in the world every 10 minutes to remind me.

Have to say that during my stay in Wellington earlier this year and on passing through Sydney and Melbourne it did feel like "USA-lite" to me. Very different from when I was over that way 15 years ago.

30 fvcking quid for a kid's pantomime ticket. 2 pound 50 less than an adult. Disgusting. Makes the Premier League look like a benevolent fund.

Bad experience but at least it's behind you.

People that rattle collection boxes in your face, just to make you feel embarrased if you don't give.

UKP14.50 at Secombe Theatre in Sutton. I imagine your's is more upmarket?

Gooders 21-12-2014 08:27 PM

My old dad used to treat us to the pantomime at the Wimbledon Theatre every year. If he knew that they were charging 30 quid a ticket, he'd be spinning in his urn.

Agree - and along the same lines, when you contribute via mail/Internet to one of the big charities (Heart, Cancer, Save the Children etc.) they then start to send you solicitations every month or so wanting more.
