    If I quickly post a few more bits of nonsense - no-one will ever know.

    Stuck in the middle of a four hour meeting. Can't remember a time before it started. Can't imagine a time when it will have ended. There was supposed to be a 15 minute break for lunch, but it got scrapped because the agenda was over-running.

    Isn't there something in the Geneva Convention about that?

    I had four one hour back to back training meetings that all had the same content today.

    I very genuinely came close to weeping 15 minutes into that last one.

    This should have finished at 3PM. The Chair asked at 2:55PM if there was any other business and 5 hands went up. We're still going.

    It's a fucking audit committee as well, which is as fun as it sounds. I'd have faked a heart attack (or broadband outage), but it's not quorate if I'm not there and so it'd just be delaying the pain.

    I've got a nightmare meeting today. Me and two other people, both of whom seem unable to make a point without ten minutes of waffle. It's as if hey are both compelled to empty their brains of every last half-formed thought on a particular subject.

    The tech guy is the worst, as he insists on explaining how everything is done even though no-one in the room understands or cares. If you tell him (politely} that we don't need to know how it's done he will just start his spiel again the next time he has the opportunity to say something.

    Four hour meetings that could have been a quick email are a godsend to me most of the time. It’s a free calendar block where I can actually get stuff done.

    I hate DPD. And probably all couriers tbh. Waiting for delivery and see on the tracker that they're nearby. Followed by a 'we missed you message' and a picture of the wrong house. FFS. Of course, there's no way to actually contact the driver, and DPD appear to have effectively removed themselves from twitter. I eventually managed to download their app and chat thier bot who tells me the driver was in the right place. When insist he wasn't it tries to put me through to a human but instead crashes. I try calling and after 20 minutes actually manage to speak to someone. They're actually quite helpful, acknowledging the driver's mistake and say the depot will try to send him back. A little while later someone from the depot calls up and confirms the driver will return by 5.

    Has he come back? Has he fuck. And I get to play this game again tomorrow. Cunts.

    At work I've been grinding away on some pretty boring (although important) stuff that's not really my core work for over a year now. I'm nearly done, and was due to move onto something very interesting afterwards - this has been the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.

    The interesting project has now been taken away from me. I'll get something interesting to do, but not nearly as interesting. Pretty pissed off about it, especially as I was due to start it the week after next. As I said I've been looking forward to it for over a year.

    @BreadBinLidHero

    My only advice? Spunk on your bosses keyboard, so that when they use it they'll be walking around all day with their fingers smelling like your manjam

    Despite having symptoms I don't have covid-19 (hurray) but based on those same symptoms I could have pneumonia.

    If it's not that I sure as hell would like to know what it is because I feel like total shite and I figure my lungs are going to burst out of my body any second now.

    Cheesed off with all news channels that constantly say “The National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire” because they struggle with the pronunciation of the name of the actual place, which is Alrewas.

    @X201 Takes me back to the days when they had to try to pronounce Eyjafjallajökull.

    Masked dancer is a new low for ITV, its like they have have bets on the lowest form of tv show they can make (and how cheap they can make it probably). Of course I don't watch but I really hate hearing how some dribble on how "it soooooooooooo good" and some cunt said this or did this
