Things that have bothered you for a long time.

Drama queens-why do they have to over-dramatize everything and tell everyone their private business?
they want to be soap stars/imagine themselves in their own franchised drama.
Only explanation I have for some of the phone conversations I am subjected to on buses.
It is usually women, so "queen" is appropriate.

I'm getting fed up of the Covid-19 invented word 'staycation'. We do 'holidays' here, not 'vacations'. Should be a 'stoliday'. Perhaps people using staycation are anticipating Boris flogging the entire nation off to Trump so we can experience the wonders of being the 51st sate with
gun-toting militia on the streets?.
And it's not a staycation (stoliday?) unless you actually stay at home. if you go anywhere and stay there, it's a holiday.

Wha' d'yer mean, "veteran"?
Kerching.
Just had a mail from chain reaction about their "curated collection of new tyres".
One of several reasons why i don't use them much these days and for several years.
Have they been checked for woodworm? Had enquiries from a member of the public who had an ancestor who was a tyre and would like to know more about it? Someone else asking if their worn-out old tyre is any use for the collection? So far this morning.

My colleague tells everyone everything and milks it quite a bit, no concept of privacy.

Gawd, this bugs me too. People having an Eastenders 'You slaaaaaag' type of argument on mobiles in public, even shouting at each other from across the street. Trouble with drama queens like this is that life ain't the script of some fantasy soap.

In any TV soap you watch, none of them do any work but they all seem to have plenty of money as they spend most of their time in the pub, eating out, drive latest cars etc...
Soap cliche: Upon entering any scene, a disagreement/argument/slanging match will start within two minutes.

Why is the Sistene Chapel so popular?
It is small and crowded with trippers (like we were). The walls are plain and hardly worth a second glance. The ceiling is fine if you like religious iconography but there is better artwork on the ceiling of the long corridor leading to the chapel.

Is this all yet another example of religion overegging itself?

To be honest when we were there we couldn't be bothered with the queue so had a few beers in a bar opposite instead.

We have been twice. The first time we bailed out very early on because of the crowds that would send HSE into fits.
The second time we missed breakfast and got in at 8.45. We hardly saw anyone else in the whole museum.

Does the man who drives my local ice cream van know that its chimes are playing 'Friggin in the Riggin'?
In a similar vein, I wonder did Bing Crosby realise that "Little Drummer Boy" is exactly the same melody as Prince Buster's "Wreck a Pum Pum"? It causes singalong awkwardness in my house at Christmas, I can tell you.
