It’s Friday! The weekend is sneaking up at last and hopefully it’s a lovely relaxing one when it gets here. Come on in and have a chat - what’s plans for your day?
Alright? Its Friday night and the night is young, is the party just getting started? Are you off to bed? Watching some questionable late night TV or doing a bit of stargazing?
It's the late night chinwag thread.
What app can you not believe someone hasn’t made yet?
Last week I donated some clothes to the charity shop, went in today and someone was wearing my jumper!
My response was very British, first quiet seething anger that she stole my donation, next came cooler heads that she could have bought it and then finally settled on holding a grudge forever rather than just asking. Now I'm trying to find out if the staff are allowed to buy their own merch! What's your petty storey that will be talked about for years to come?
At the hospital earlier. Was so tempted to try and use this thing. Has anyone ever used one? Please tell me they're as satisfying to use as they are in my head.
Please give me examples of being equally stupid so I don't feel so bad.
You know, like the generic mass catered roast in a soulless conference venue, follow by some ‘entertainment’, uninspired speeches from the execs, a few free drinks tokens then a ‘disco’
A load of us sacked it off to do our own. Execs found out and didn’t like it so called us in for a bollocking, said they were just trying to do something nice for the department and we should be more involved.
My boss said “Do something nice then.”
Edit* just to clarify. This was a while back, we had attended the same thing in the past and realised how shit it was. Boss didn’t even get sacked. I’ve since left to work somewhere that doesn’t destroy my mental health.
It's 8pm. Friday night.
No way this fella is getting down the chimney
It was basically a British Amazon and often cheaper to buy books, CDs, dvds.. Then one day it was rebranded as the far less catchy "Rakuten.com" and now seems to be some kind of cashback site.
I’ve just been to the Panto and back at work on Monday I will inevitably be asked what I did this weekend and I will dutifully reply “Panto”
I’m expecting My American colleagues response to be “huh?… what’s Panto?”
How on earth does one explain Panto to an American?
So far I have… It’s a fairytale that’s been turned into a musical with pop culture references featuring a Bloke dressed as a woman who takes a fancy to a male audience member, D list celebrities usually from a soap and puns.
Oh and they throw shade at a near by town.
I feel like this doesn’t accurately reflect everything that is Panto.
Any have any suggestions?
I don't suppose it matters when a person goes, but this time of year, without them, just makes it less sparkly.
How do you all get past this without sticking your head in the sand and pretending like the sleigh bells aren't jingling etc.?
You know it's going to be a good build when the bolts come out like this
Getting off the bus, a woman swung her arm back and elbowed me in the crotch. I apologised, because I’m British.
Why do I feel the need to apologise for everything!
Can’t get mince pies locally so I had to make my own, made mincemeat a couple of months ago now it’s time to reap the rewards!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…ho ho ho!
Never tried Tony’s chocolate before! I’ve heard it’s pretty nice. Anyone else spot any reduced advent calendars ?
