On the subject of emails - if you are copied into an email and there is a general instruction to do something that isnt address to anyone but might fall under your remit, do you take it as an instruction or as an FYI since you were cc'ed?

 

Different places I've worked have different approaches and it caused issues in the past lol

It’s why it shouldn’t be done. Tasks communicated like that never get done lol 

 

@Name1 do this

@Name 2 do that

 

is the way

Cc shouldn't exist. If I'm included in an email, just put it in the normal 'to' section. The recipient gets it in the same way as any other email and any other email recipient. Unless it's stated in the email that it is just FYI or named separately you need to do something else.

The Captain Birdseye advert.

 

’Captain Birdseye loves nothing more than swimming with his grandson and fish fingers’. What the Fvck?

 

Some old bloke in a sailors cap surrounded by children on his floating nonce-palace isn’t going to make me buy his wares.

Joggers! I was walking in the park and this jogger came from behind me and shouted at me to ‘get out of the f***** way” he screamed he was on for a PB or something! 
 

well long story short, he eventually turned around and I tripped him up! Doubt he managed he PB that day.

Depends who's videos you watch i think.

The ones I've seen are often cringeworthy music videos; and people that create and show themselves doing things that look quite staged.

People who name their house instead of having a number like a normal person.

'Poppywell House' or 'Aspen View' can fvck right off.

People who’s house number sign is in letter form, such as twenty-three, are the same breed.

When people refer to mobile phones as iPhones when the context of the conversation, comment or meme didn't require the brand to be specified.

 

Other phones do exist. Some are even better.

People sending you an email that they can see that you’ve already been sent or copied in to 

People not selecting 'reply all' in a group email. Also, not selecting the latest email when they reply.

People who type in accents, namely the Scottish. What’s the need for it :dunno:

 

 

(don’t even think about it)

Yeah this is a good one, it is so pathetic. Not sure why they do it either maybe they are just uneducated scotch people.

People who compare things that have happened to things that haven’t happened. 
For example when people say if a man/woman had said that...  when the opposite gender says something slightly controversial 

or if a white/black person did that...when a different race does something slightly controversial. 
And then they try and compare two vaguely similar events, leaving out the context.
