Pointless But It Does My Head In
People who sign emails and posts at the end with: Peace
People who talk too loud
People who are late
People who call and don't leave a message
and sometimes just People...
I am guilty of one and four.
I hate talking to phones.
Why tho, it's very techno Edward
PS, on that mix you did with Ceephax there's an electro track with male and female vocal, which has something like the following line "You're dreaming of female, while reading your email" What the the tune?
Too much talk early in the morning or while eating...
definitely guilty of 4, i hate leaving messages. i'll probably text message instead tho
I try really hard not to do no. 4, so I sometimes end up leaving really inane, babbling messages just so as not to be saying nothing.
"Anyway, gotta get to bed now, can't really think of anything else to, er, say, so I guess I'll catch you on here tomorrow, I guess, er, probably. OK, right, bye then - war!"
Rover Drivers and double if they are wearing a hat
People who never read the manual but think I'm called tech support
People who ignore cues at airports
people who write
'i would say that...' at the start of their sentence & other such pompousness
THIS IS NOT .DEB.SOC at yr UNI - just say what yr saying ok
I don't leave messages. I'm sorry, but if you're too fucking lazy to raise a phone to your ear, why should I then have to put up with some condescending cyborg telling me I can leave a message after the tone? Like, no, I fucking can't actually - I'm busy.
I dislike it when people say "as a person"
"He's very nice as a person but his opinions on x....."
"Speaking as a person, I think that....."
Everyone is a person.
Also on planes when they say "please ask myself or one of my colleagues".
As if "myself" sounds more official than the correct word which is "me".
Martin Dust, the record in question is this:
When you answer the 'phone and the person at the other end asks:
"Is xxxx there at all"
They're either there, or they're not fucxxn there.
I thought that "yr" was a Sonic Youth reference (Xpressway to yr Skull)
