    Life's Little Disappointments

    Inspired by a conversation I've just had with a certain Mr Casson, this thread is dedicated to all of those disappointing little things that happen on a daily basis, that aren't big enough to go in the rant thread, but somehow really manage to get on your nerves.

    Ideas we've come up with so far:

    MSN telling you you have an email, and it turning out to be nothing interesting whatsoever
    Getting an SMS from someone you don't like
    Ordering a milkshake and it turning out to be Nesquik
    Buying a CD/DVD/computer game and discovering it's not very good
    Your favourite batsman looking in great touch but then getting out for 15
    Watching a match as a neutral, then the team batting first gets out cheaply
    Watching a TV show that's been hyped for ages and finding out it's rubbish


    Your turn, guys and girls.

    Opening a thread anticipating a decent read and a good laugh at Barney's expense and being greeted with a serious lack of stimulation.

    Even worse when your phone goes off in a lesson and it turns out it's from O2.

    when you wake up, knowing you'll play a cricket match today, and you look outside and you see the rain pouring

    in the middle of an exam getting a text, you get all happy...and see it's vodafone
    girls seeing you as a mate because you listen so well, but never want anything else

    Slightly odd reaction given that you're in the middle of an exam.

    Completely agreed with this one. Really stings.

    I think a whole bunch of lads on this forum encounter the same problems as mentioned before.

    Things like cricket training being cancelled, buying a PS2 game that is awful, losing small change (50p/1 etc), breaking things and getting rinsed by fools all class.

    Buying a CD & finding that the little plastic bits that hold it in place in the case are already half-busted off. Means I either have to take it back (which is such a hassle) or settle for damaged goods.
