    Been to Florence today including the Uffizi gallery. Saw a Japanese tourist pointing a laser pointer at paintings at least 400 years old. Another one touching one! Security didn't batter an eyelid. If my Italian was good, I would have informed the security

    Then an American tourist yesterday thought she could pay for using a public loo - which costs 50 cents (€) with two U.S. quarters. The cost is another irritation.

    Cannot go anywhere in the world with these nationalities irritating me in some way.

    people who tell people to share something on facebook. if its about them it often says if you share i know you are a true friend. this implies you arent a true friend if you dont. or if its about puppies dying they say if you dont share you dont care. why not just post what you want to post and let people decide for themselves whether they want to share it or not. telling me to share guarantees that i wont.

    'True friend' and 'Facebook'? Are they really synonymous?
    More like a contradiction in terms. I'd have thought!

    Windows 10 Anniversary update that installed itself on my pc this morning. Not only did it take forever for download and install, the icons and font size is massive. Apparently its a common problem.

    • OD2-licensed media won't play - the site doesn't exist, Microsoft don't provide a site redirect and you can't load a backup of licence data.
    OD2 were used by HMV and MSN Music's online shops (to name just 2).

    In short, Microsoft suck

    A few years ago, I had free tickets to Warwick Castle, so I went. Even though I was local at the time.

    An American family decided to take over. The loud mouthed man of the family kept pronouncing Warwick (pronounced Worrick) as War...... Wick. I suffered it for about 20 minutes.....I did well. I then told him I would punch him if he said another word.

    They all hated me, but thankfully shut the hell up!

    Did grilled pork chops with a balsamic glaze for dinner and after a while I noticed they weren't browning. It was at this point I decided to turn the switch from 'oven' to 'grill.'

    Turned out really nice and apart from that, a good day.

    Totally agree with the horse riding! I hate horses.

    Glad you enjoyed the trip though

    Some hilarious things happened. My colleague was adamant that his horse hated him (I think it was reacting to his tense self) and wanted to swap

    I got lost despite strict instructions to walk a certain distance but I couldn't figure out which way North was.
    My other colleague got told off by the guide for trying to wear heels to a hike and complaining too much.

    I think I'd go Lake District over Budapest now.

    I ended up apologising over and over for how some of my colleagues acted after drinking. Spent more time with the workers than my colleagues. Didn't blame them for calling us arrogant !!!!s. The same girl who refused to remove her heels threw a fit when they didn't get diet coke. Urgh

    BTW I would not recommend paintball when hungover. I just climbed up a tree house and napped. I woke up enough to shoot my hated colleagues in the private parts.

    Company was lucky they didn't arrange proper shooting. It'd have been Battle Royale
