Twats. A rant.
Dear Person in the car in front of me.
I’m sure you are very very important and that you must get to work with as much haste as possible, god forbid you waste even the briefest of moments on your journey. However, see all that snow pilled up on your car? No, you probably can’t as you are too busy peering out of the porthole you’ve cleared for yourself on the windscreen.
Well all that snow, pilled up on the roof and sides of your car, is currently dislodging and showering the people driving behind you. Twat. I hope if you have to brake suddenly, and given you can’t really see the road properly I’d say there is a good chance of that happening, that all the snow on your roof doesn’t’ suddenly slide down and completely obscure your view.
Or, you know, perhaps I hope you veer off the road and remove yourself from the gene pool
Work for a bank? Been budgetting based on your bonus? Isn’t that the opposite of the advice you tell us “idiots wot kno’ nuffink about money”? Twats.
The slow burn of bile started on Sunday morning when Darling stated that the bonuses being paid out to banking staff would be looked at to make sure they aren’t too high.
Not, “Bonuses? Are they mad? We’ve just given them taxpayers money! Screw their bonuses!!”.
I’m really really sorry for all those people who work in the banking sector, the people in the branches who didn’t really have much say in any of this*, but the fact remains. The banks fucked up, they went along with schemes they neglected to understand or knew to be unworkable (I’m still not sure which is worse), so why the hell do ANY of them deserve a bonus?
However, undeterred I’m going to be approaching my boss this morning. Unfortunately, having not fucked anything up my chances are slim.
Ohhhhh, that feels better.
* I’m aware that people working in a branch will have worked hard and be on a bonus related scheme. My problem isn’t with them.
