I'm really bad at actuallly picking films or shows to watch as there're too many. Another TA. The amount of times I've sat down at 9pm to choose something and only for the window to expire...

Made a lovely warm chicken wrap for lunch, went to wrap it and discovered the cheeky ****er had green mould on the underside of it. Had to scrape out all the filling onto crappy bread instead. It had all gone cold too by the time I actually could eat it.

Working from home TA: Email from office "please call Mr Customer on xxxx."

When I call Mr Customer his query is absolutely nothing to do with me or my team at all. Switchboard just didn't both asking what he was actually calling about.

I just copped that crisps I've been buying are over twice the price I thought they were, or they originally were. I'm talking about the amazing Lorenz Crunchips Paprika. In the UK, for a 140g bag it's £1.43 (€1.66), and over here the 150g bag of the same crisps is €3.99!!!

I'm actually a bit more than trivially annoyed, I can't see any justification for over double the price for an extra* 10g. So I've emailed them to ask why. I don't usually do that, but that's a crazy difference in price for basically the same product. These used to be sub €2 at one point. They're only €2 on partyonline.ie. Tesco, every little helps line their greedy paws!

*allegedly, there's so much air one would have to actually weigh them

Different VAT rates, perhaps? That would do it.
