There's a small shop at work where they use a touchscreen. One of the workers uses a pen or marker to touch the screen rather than her finger. I don't know why but it really annoys me

Ring of TP on the seat helps a bit, provided there's TP to be found. Which is my next TA.

A lot of people won't like this TA : Rugby.

More specifically - smug rugby fans.

Did you ever hear one talk about the history of the game and how it was invented? '....when back in <prehistoric times> Somedick picked up the ball and ran with it.....' First of all - he cheated. The whole game is based on cheating. The clue is in the name - FOOTball.

But they gloss over that when engaged in their second favourite sport - giving out about football. 'Oh football is full of cheats; rolling and diving all the time...' And when you point out there's cheating in rugby too - the whole blood pack thing being a prime example - they usually talk about how harsh the punishment was and move on. That's your defence? It's harder to get away with? Like you don't get players in every game making little infringements and chancing every little cheat they think they can get away with? You never see cynical play in rugby?

On Saturday I had a tiny woman telling me there's 'no real men in football; not compared to rugby', while a man on the screen who had his leg broken in two places during a Europa League match made a tackle. 'Real men'? Like she'd have a clue. Like she'd ever played herself. I haven't played in ages but actually loved playing rugby. If only I wasn't terrible at it.

It just amazes me how partisan people can get about things. 'I like A, so B is a load of ****e. x happens a lot in B, but when it happens in A, we justify it and move on. Everybody should like A and there's something wrong with you if you don't.'

Shared toilets are just awful but we have to use them, unfortunately. My worst experience was recent enough. I was sat there waiting for nature to take its course, when my man-part brushed against the inside rim of the toilet seat. Oh Jesus, even thinking of it now gives me the gawks

Misread the title as "Trying things that do anal", assumed it was a drunken attempt at one of those "I just got rejected, console me in my darkest hour" threads from Saturday night

Had a fantastic couple of nights away in Galway (despite Storm Erik!). Lovely hotel at a great deal, upgraded to a "superior" room for only an extra tenner, and in fairness it was very good. Everything about the place was brilliant. Had a good night out on the town on Thursday evening, and found some really great pubs. So no complaints or TAs so far.

Friday morning comes and we head down to the restaurant for breakfast. Really impressive spread with everything you could hope for. Then we started to eat. Fried and scrambled eggs, fried potatoes and mushrooms (we're both vegetarians so didn't have sausages, rashers, etc). The food was absolutely freezing. We assumed the hot plates or whatever they are called were broken, and didn't want to make a fuss so we ate our cold breakfast grimly.

Another great day and night on the town followed and we forgot our breakfast woes. Until Saturday morning, when the same thing happened again. It was even colder this time, so cold in fact, that we couldn't force the food down.

Again, we didn't complain, we just b!tched about it to ourselves.

So, despite all the great facilities the hotel had to offer, our memories of the place are tainted by the thought of our awful, cold breakfasts.

The breakfast itself was a TA, but our refusal to complain is my biggest TA now

I will never understand the complete and utter unwillingness to complain of many Irish people.

There's a big sign in our works toilets which reads: "Please do not dispose of your chewing gum in the urinal. Please use the bins."

This is a fairly large sign, with block red lettering, placed directly above the urinals.

And yet what did I just see in the urinal?

I hate chewing gum in general. I also hate colleagues who do not follow simple requests.

Somehow I've managed to get lots of little cuts and cracks on my fingers despite not doing any manual work. And the cold and wind really makes them smart.
