How are some shops always advertising sales. Like Every. Single. Day. I'm looking at you Harvey Norman...
Why I can't have a wheelchair for my daughter that has everything I think it needs. Like a pair of cup holders, lights or reflectors, a rain hood with a cut out for her face that doesn't let the rain in (apart from that special kind of rain you get in Ireland that blows horizontally of course). Shopping net, small portable tray and with power steering so I don't get so tired.
I mean why wear them? They might look cool and ironic if you're young and gorgeous like Smiley (or you're Kate Moss) but I really think that anyone over 25 should avoid. And thoughts of sweating in one while slaving over a hot stove on Christmas Day is not good at all
Why did no-one tell me that when people say they are wearing their day time PJs, they actually mean comfy clothes not pyjamas?
My son thoroughly enjoyed a school trip to visit a bank in the city centre, and was awed by the traders explaining how they would expected to buy €240 million that day. He didn't make a connection, but I was annoyed on his behalf when he told me that they had all been given a goody bag with cheap generic sweets! As my son said, the names were similar, but they didn't taste great at all. Was this done because he attends an inner city disadvantaged school?
Surely a bank that trades in hundreds of millions every day can afford to give visiting school children real gummy bears? Even just for a bit of positive PR?
The Dark Ages
As well as filling in forms, everything special needs seems to require a half hour phone call (assuming you actually get through) when it could actually be dealt with in a 2 minute email. Is this an unintended consequence of the Freedom of Information Act?
Especially the ones that just offer weekends away and outings that I can't use: and the knowledge that I'm subsiding the social lives of people in their 20s is pretty galling. Grumble, grumble.
Why do so many older women wear sandals? In almost all weathers except snow. Don't their feet get cold or something?
What confused you this year?
