A place to vent about the idiocy of our age and other personal gripes and annoyances.

...under my food? Who decided that it would be good to place a napkin on plates underneath the food? Surely that napkin is not to keep the plate clean, it cannot be for me to use after I have eaten because the napkin is then more dirty than my mouth, so what is the purpose of that little square of paper?

The best case scenario of this is that I have to handle my food and remove the napkin before I can eat and the worst (most often) case is that the food leaks and sticks to the napkin so I end up with a soggy sticky bit of napkin stuck to my food*

Restaurant and cafe owners I do not want a napkin under my panini or fudge cake or salad roll, please leave my food unsullied by your paper hygiene products.

*I had a tuna melt panini nicely placed on a napkin which then nicely became a tuna melt panini with added paper napkin because the "juice" from the panini leaked and welded the napkin to the bottom of the bread!!!

Dear Post Office please train your staff to differentiate between a packet and a parcel.

A 12inch by 12 inch by 12 inch Cardboard BOX is not a packet! If I had cycled to collect my "packet" that Parcel would not have gone in my bag and I would have been very annoyed at having to push my bike the 2.5 miles home carrying said parcel :(

Packet = softish squishy large envelope type object not a box of any description!!!!

So I left the house 25 minutes early to make sure I get to University early to find out exactly where my exam is and I end up getting to uni at exactly the same time as usual. So somewhere between my house and the train station I lost that 25 minutes and there were no delays, maybe I slipped out of time with the universe :)

Remember folks, sat-nav technology is there to help you and augment your own resources not to replace your highly developed brain and your (apparently lack of) cognitive skills.

Dear pasta packet makers...why give me a sticky resealing tab and attach it to a packet that tears from top to bottom when I try to carefully open the top, that little piece of tape cannot fix that tear!!
