What is Blogger up to now?!
I can't even upload a pic from google!
Before any of you say it, let me say it first: I loathe the new colour scheme of my blog.
It was supposed to be experimental and now it has decided to stay.
I have time either to post a few lines, OR fiddle with the design.
Its days are numbered.
I also hate the "upgrade".
The previous one was much easier to work with I.
Which brings me, quite neatly, to what has been quietly bubbling on the back plate of my mind recently.
Irritation and Anger.
The amount and depth of anger that is boiling just below the surface in the emotions of ordinary people like ourselves would probably horrify us.
The evidence is everywhere.
And irritation is the baby bro of anger.
Little irritation is eager to grow up. And can mature in seconds, as most of us know.
Don't you find that lots of things irritate you?
I was shocked at how many things immediately sprang to my mind:
# Blogger's changes, usually not helpful to me.
# Waiting in queues
# Not being able to get through on the phone
# Being put on hold
# Those recorded instructions on the phone: "If you want to pay an account, press 1; if you want to . . ."
# Shop assistants that chat instead of serving
# Shop assistants who don't know their product
# Just missing a phone call
# Super slow drivers in front of me
# Hawkers at every robot
# 400 odd T'V channels and nothing to watch
And on and on.
I could fill pages Im sure - how about you?
I see I'm running out of time and am going to have to come back to this later -
