How I Love Teenagers...

Today I started work at 12, my mum started work at 11:30, so I figured, by the time I left and waited for the bus, I’d be better off just leaving with her, plus I had to make a pit stop at one of my friends. Naturally, I drove. I can’t stand being driven. It’s because I don’t trust the person driving me as much as I trust myself to drive... Ignore that my mum has driven me around for nearly 16 years of my life.

Anyways, made the pit stop fine and carried on my way to her work. She has a season parking pass, the only catch is that she has to park on the second floor. She’d already got out the car on the first floor - she had some shopping to do and it seemed stupid having two of us park the car. I drove to the top floor and circled it once. There were no free spaces and about 2 cars in front of me. The first car got a spot, the second went downstairs. I had no option other than to wait, given that I couldn’t park on any of the other floors. While waiting, I parked up on the side so other cars could pass me.

In the meantime, I was eyeing up the spot I always park her car in. It’s a wide bay, against a wall, so you only have one car to the side of you, no trolley parks in sight, always a safe option. The spot I wanted was occupied by two teenage rude boys/chavs eating McDonalds; they noticed me as I noticed them. Having waited two or three minutes, a man approached his car, which wasn’t where I’d usually park, but wasn’t right next to the trolley park, so it wasn’t a bad option. I did my reverse park in the bay, equal distance either side of the lines. I’m often complimented on my parking, some say I park like a bloke; I just don’t understand how women can’t park.

So I get out of the car, and to get to the elevator I have to walk passed the McDonalds boys, who are about 45 degrees clockwise to my car. Clearly, they watched me park and were impressed by it, at least that’s what I gathered from their wolf whistling. I don’t tend to pay any attention to it, of course it’s flattering but it’s also slightly insulting.

I went downstairs, and gave the keys to my mum. Only then did it hit me, “did I lock the car?!.. I’m pretty sure I did...” Unfortunately I’m one of these people that, as soon as I have a slight doubt in my mind I must verify it or it’ll bug me for the whole day. As I was 98% sure I had locked it, I didn’t ask for the keys back. I went back up to the car, not wanting to pass those boys again. I looked at the wide bay, and sure enough they’d gone, leaving their McDonalds bags either side of where their car doors would have been had the car still been there. As I approached my car, I noticed something splattered across the bonnet and my left headlight, as I followed it down, I saw the tiny pot of McDonalds Sweet Chilli Sauce that was by the left wheel. Needless to say, I was not impressed, but was thankful that I did in fact lock the car.

I wonder what would have happened had I acknowledged their whistling…


  1. I was fuming!

    Ended up going to work all angry and worked up, but figured, my day could only get better, so looked at the positive side.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
