I'm *usually* sympathetic and non judgemental but the phrase "stuck in a rut" just ta's the daylights out of me.
Usually said by people with more options and resources than most.
Just no drive or willingness to make the effort for something good or different.

People posting in Missing Persons threads with the words SAFE and WELL unless the person has been located.

Just share the fcuking thing and move on.

When I scan through a missing person thread and see "hope they safe and well" or "praying they're found safe and well" my little brain wholesomely celebrates for a split second and I don't even know the person.

I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for people who actually have a connection to the one who is missing.

/Rant.

Going back to my student days, but get yourself a pint glass, and push the cork in with the butt of a knife. Once you get a tiny opening, turn the bottle upside down towards the pint glass. It'll come out with a trickle at first, but keep repeating until there is enough room in the bottle for the cork to go all the way through. Turn over again, and voila, lovely pint of wine

TA'd that I'm working again with the machine, someone who can just churn out repetitive work while I struggle to keep my brain turned on. It's additional work, which we should never have to do, and as it's admin/repetitive, I can't do it. I just can't. I'll do what I can but have to stop or I'll make (money costing) mistakes. It's not what I was hired for (my job requires thinking) and I said as much in the interview that I'm not cut out for admin/repetitive work, and was promised there wouldn't be any and that my job would always require thinking as the repetitive stuff is not within my role. Which it did, up to now. We won't be doing anything like it once this is all over, and we even had to 'self train' on a new system so we could complete this. And it's all numbers, and it's not numerically ordered!!!

Meanwhile she's doing 4-5 times more than anyone else. And I just can't.

TA'd that that makes me sound like a 'smarter than you' type, when i'm not!

Brute force really. Put the bottle on the ground and push the cork into the bottle using an implement like the end of a wooden spoon or similar

Or use a normal screw, leave about a quarter out, and use a strong fork or pliers or one of those hammers with the "nose" to remove nails to leverage it out.

Don’t have a problem with this because they let me lick their faces too
In regards to the cork, if you have a screw to screw into the cork, you can pull it out with a fork.

My TA I’ve been snoozing all day and now I’m raring to go

In those no corkscrew situations I always use the winebottle/shoe method.. a bit scary to try at firat but works nicely.

Too hard to explain here so google is the answer, but it pops the cork out cleanly

Forgot which thread I'm on..my TA is that I can't concentrate on anything I start watching. Have started so many films and series of late, very few keeping me interested
