    That happens sooo often, I tend to give really vague or no opinions to people who I know do that now.

    My laptop connecting to pages like facebook, tumblr and my forums easy as pie - pages I reload multiple times a day. But my lesser, or never, used websites? Nope, no can do.

    I can only assume it's the wind!? Ugh.

    disgustingly vile people who are drunk in Manchester.

    I was waiting for a taxi back to halls outside the coach station and there was a muslim woman behind me wearing a headscarf. It's flipping freezing in Manchester at half past midnight and this woman comes up to the muslim woman and starts pulling on her headscarf saying she wishes she was a muslim so she could be warm.

    A. that's completely disrespectful to the (very very nice) womans faith and YOU JUST DONT DO THAT
    B. yes, it's cold, I was cold too. Maybe if we'd been dressed more appropriately for feburary weather in Manchester we'd have been warmer..?

    the woman shouted back at them and then immediately felt really guilty and was saying how bad she felt. She was really, really nice and I was talking to her making sure she was okay because I know how awful it is for strangers to harass you in public, especially over clothing. I hope she's okay and not too shook up =/ people like that really do make me hate humanity.
    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    People delivering parcels, they always knock and walk away without even waiting two seconds, we don't even get a chance to answer before they're gone! I'm sure they think we live next to the front door.

    I know what you mean! Last week someone knocked and in the time it took me to get out of bed and downstairs (less than a minute), he'd already botheredy my neighbour who also works nights so was probably also in bed.

    Im in an active group on facebook and a girl posted a photo. It has 30 odd comments and the very last comment is a girl asking a question. This question was previously asked earlier on in the comments but the last comment girl must have read all the comments to know what it was about anyway as the main post didnt give it away.
    Also grinding my gears is that i cant seem to word this correctly.
    For example: Photo of a cupcake.
    Comments on said cupcake. About 10 of how amazing it looks then halfway through 'oh wow what is it?' 'its a gooey chocolate centre cupcake' 'oh how did you make that?' '*explanation* few more comments about how amazing it is before last girls comment ' 'how did you get the gooey centre?'
    Ugh!




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

    When people edit/delete stuff online to make it look like you're either crazy or they've done nothing wrong. I don't normally mind too much but I've seen this no less than FOUR times today!

    Just admit you shouldn't have said it instead of looking daft, no one is perfect, we all make mistakes.

    Geesh what do these people do in RL situations? Argue they never said anything of the sort...? Wait, they probably do. Sigh.

    People spelling gorgeous as 'gawjus'. I see it so often I swear everyone thinks that's how it's actually spelt.

    They might do! With the number of people who don't know the difference between passed/past, why/while, their/there/they're and so on it's probably true. It's sad because I know someone who has adamant that they were never clearly taught the difference in school. Guess if auto-correct does the work for you then you don't learn? That and possible poor teaching?

    GMG someone trying to justify me spending $21 to get a replacement $17 tongue bar sent to me. Erm...no, just no.
