We keep missing deliveries, because delivery drivers don't press the doorbell, but knock.

I understand "some doorbells don't work", but our house is all brick and laid out in such a way (one room wide and all in a line) that if someone knocks we often only hear it if we're in one of 2 rooms. We also close doors throughout due to cold/drafts, so the noise just doesn't carry. Also not helped this week by the neighbours having building work done. But ffs, press the fucking button and knock if you don't trust the fucking thing.

Get one of these Bazza...

Ha, we have the opposite problem - we have an old electric doorbell that doesn't work that despite the sign saying "Doesn't work, please knock", they still press and then shove a note through the door when no-one answers the entirely silent bell. TBF, it's my fault for being too lazy to fix it.

Taking parcels in for neighbours. Unreasonable, but I fucking hate it.

Problem is, I'm too nice to say no.

Im sorry this one is really hackneyed, but today I went to a supermarket and saw loads of adverts saying 'are you ready for easter'.  Easter is the 21st April.  2 months away.  I can get ready for easter - as if it actually needed preparation - on the 20th of April.  Please fuck off with your year round 'you must spend on this meaningless celebration' clawing at our wallets.

I'm glad you flagged up the date of Easter, as I was thinking about re Newport new game.  That has to be about as late as it gets, it's a moveable feast, for which there is pressure on the church to reverse the recommendation of its date, decreed by the Council of Nicaea in AD 325.  That pressure comes from neoliberal governments and their business backers, who would prefer something more sensible like Christmas.

I think it would be a very sad state of affairs if Mammon pevails.

Itís probably been mentioned before, but why do couples young and old go out to the pub and spend all the time on their fucking phones - have people nothing to say to each other.

This was tempered slightly by a real old bird - 70+ - ordering a bottle of Desperados.

I don't get it myself. I barely touch my phone when I am out and I am far from being a luddite.

My misses likes to faff about on her phone when we go to the pub, though. Which works in my favour because it means she's happy for me to leave her on her own while I go and chat with the lads.

Yes.

That was Brian. I'm sure he will be fucking delighted. I've not seen him for ages though, he's retired (he's 70 something). Him and his misses have gone up north to chill out and stuff.

Hearing brummies speaking Thai in a brummie accent is one of my favourite things.
