Today sees Scotrail's new timetables come into force. The change on the Edinburgh - North Berwick route means that Nigel missed his connection. Which pissed me off.
Missed the Post
I have long since adjusted to the fact that my extended family do not remember birthdays or send thank you letters. I received a package the day before yesterday and duly wrote a letter expressing my gratitude the same day. Today I received a phone call 'wondering if I had received it'. Which pissed me off.
Missed a golden opportunity
The 50th anniversary of Coronation Street has been built up for months. So far in the tram disaster/gas explosion storyline, there have been three deaths. At no point was organ donation mentioned. Which pissed me off.
To make up for being such a grumpy pants, here's a couple of things you don't want to miss:
