My Ipod dock
It has a clock, which is handy
It has an alarm, which is handy....
However, turn the thing off at the plug for more than a minute, the clock resets, however 2 years down the line, having been unplugged for weeks/months at a time, the alarm is STILL set to what it believes to be 1.09am. As i keep it in the kitchen, tend to only turn it on for housework, and wander off after about 45 mins..... so annoying (esp as the alarm doesnt actually play the ipod, just some inbuilt jingle thing)

****s who take drugs/antibiotics at the slightest sniffle
Jesus man, you're not helping yourself. Ride the ****ing thing out and get an immune system. Some girl at uni today was relating to her friend how she had this drug for that thing and that drug for this thing. Couldn't help wondering if her little drug cocktail was part of the problem. Then you see people dropping everything and running to the doctor for ten thousand prescription drugs and some antibiotics after throwing up once.
Modern medicine is fantastic, but some people need to understand drugs aren't lollies. Also, antibiotics aren't for spamming like penis enlargement adverts. Riding out the occassional tummy bug does wonders for your immune system. If you have your vaccinations, then a cold is not going to kill you. By all means have a panadol, but some of the stuff people take is just nuts. Antibiotics in particular don't discrimminate in what bacteria they kill. To kill the little illness you're weakening yourself in the process.
Blow your ****ing nose, drink water, and stfu. Then I won't have to listen to you coughing and sneezing next week.
Don't like using my iPod dock. Ruins battery life too much.
So I'm in the queue at the post office today sending off a parcel OS. Bloke at the counter makes me fill out a customs declaration because obviously the book I was sending resembled 27 kilos of Columbian marching powder. He says when I've filled it out to come back and he'll check it for me and not to queue back up.
Because I'm nothing if not compliant I do all of that, all goes well until I'm walking out and this smart arse, fat arse woman says "You know this is the queue don't you?" in a really loud voice. I was already in a foul mood and this did nowt to improve it.
This did not endear her to me, so I had no alternative but to say back even louder "Yes I'm aware this is the queue. I'm also aware I stood in it for 25 minutes and that the man at the counter told me to come back to him and not line up again. Is that all right with you madam?" before walking out accompanied by chuckles from other customers.
Honestly, why can't people mind their own business? She looked like Bronwyn Bishop too, which made it sweeter.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Was in Brooklyn, living in a pretty scary neighbourhood (guys got shot and stabbed all the time around the corner). Had to trek out to the post office to send a package home. Was the only white guy in there, bought the box and the stamp and the lady said to go fill out the form and come back, and don't worry about waiting in line. So I do that and go back to her. The next thing I hear is:
"Whatchoo think you're doing boy? Get to the back of the line"
This middle aged bitch started going off at me. I ignored her at first but then she starts getting louder and louder and everyone's looking at me. I was ****ting myself. So I explained what the staff member has said and she responds:
"I didn't see you before"
As if I was making the whole thing up. Then she starts telling me
"Do I have to call some people in?" To come break my legs obviously.
Anyways, this whole commotion breaks out, everyone starts discussing whether I was legit or had broken in front of the line, eventually when someone said they saw me earlier there they backed off, although the bitch kept mumbling "I never saw him...you'll get yours..."
Needless to say I ran out of there so fast after I was done and never went back....
