    So far this week we have have had;

    I’m now unemployed, what Sky TV package should I pay for?
    I’m a parent and should be able to go on a nice holiday without paying premium school-holidays prices, how much will the school fine me for going in term time?

    So what other ‘expectations’ have become the societal norm like sunny holidays and paid for TV as a requirement for life that would previously have been baffling (and maybe still is).

    – A flash car on the drive paid for by leasing/finance that some people seem to think means they are ‘considerably richer than youwwwww’.

    People have responded with real incredulity that I am quite happy with my 12 year old, 258k mile car.
    Some have even expressed surprise when I’ve given them a lift in it because it’s ‘just like a normal car’…….as opposed to something with holes in the floor so you can push yourself along with your feet.

    – that you have an iPhone and know how one works.

    – car indicators are optional, and if joining a main road from a slip road, the person on the slip road has right of way over those already on the carriageway.

    that poor spelling is allowable

    That picking someone up, for not capitalising a sentence, is ok.

    p.s You started your sentence without a capital.

    – if joining a main road from a slip road, the person on the slip road has right of way over those already on the carriageway.

    I worked with a guy who genuinely believed that this was the case! He scared the life out of me pulling on a motorway with this sense of entitlement right in front of oncoming traffic. He can’t have passed his test more than 3 years previous.

    Did he learn in this country? I know in some countries you do have priority from a slip road.
    I used to work with a Polish guy who thought it was the way to do things and was ranting at work about being almost run off the road by someone who refused to get out of his way. Took us quite a while to explain that it didn’t work like that on UK roads; he was still quite dismissive of it after we showed him the relevant bits of the highway code.

    That sentence, should not have, any commas.

    They’re not even Oxford Commas, for crying out loud

    That sentence, should not have, any commas.

    I get pretty pissed off that my budget smartphone’s 8gb of storage is often half full of unspecified ‘other’ data..

    I mean for **** sake.. How are we meant to function under those conditions..
    It’s bullshit

    *runs of giggling*

    I didn’t know “runs” was the collective noun for giggles.
