    Christmas Carols.
    I don't want to be in your shop at the best of times. The lights are so bright it's like it's a goddamn interrogation by the KGB. The xmas carols are not enjoyable, in fact I wish I was deaf.

    What I appreciate the most is that you included the appropriate amount of "la's".

    I am a contractor, and have been told my RSVP is mandatory at one of my clients' breakup gigs or I lose my work.

    Fark these cant's...

    I get the need to organise catering numbers, but don't they get that we don't know when our phone will ring, but when it does, we gotta go?

    Could be bulk gas leak etc... that is lethal... But even worse, if beer is hitting the floor that is criminal.

    FYI - my **** off is to Carol, not you. I like clarity in both beer and communication.

    I was reading that Coopers Vintage is the biggest seller in Tesco's (UK supermarket chain) can't for the life of me understand why Coopers would allow pubs here who have it on tap serve it at about 2 degrees C, just imagine what it would be like through a beer engine at about 10 degrees C.:foammug:

    The first time I thought you were swearing at me was just now when you said you weren't.

    Best Xmas rant I’ve read, you win.
    Fark, the amount of times over the years I’ve had people “want” an extension or pergola etc done 4 weeks before Christmas coz family is coming !
    Hmm, planning approval, costing etc. I can’t pull a rabbit out of a hat but I pull a hair outa my arse.
    Go get fucked.

    Yes they are within work hours. But you lose at least half a day with each event. That no one wants.

    I'm not wanting to work :), but also do not like being made to go to pointless parties.

    I understand completely. Just if it was outside normal hours and still 'expected' or compulsory, it would be an extra layer of shit.

    I love Christmas. Good weather, parties, early knock off if things arent on, beach holidays and (most) people are in a good mood.

    The **** is wrong with y'all??!

    Nah, people think the world ends at Christmas. It effing doesn't. I love the bit where I get to have a beer with my brothers, my dad, some work mates. I hate going near a shop or even worse shopping centre at this time of year though. Had some slag drive a trolley into my leg the other day in the super market, I'm trying my best to not get upset so I ignore it continue shopping and turn to reach for a box of cereal, her daughter jumps through as kids do and gets in the way. She's about four and I couldn't care less, but mum starts telling her off! Like a proper look where you're going style rant at the poor kid. Really had to bite my tongue.
