    Just used my full ISA allowance 13th Apr 18 at 6:59 PM
    I've just used up my full ISA allowance, when you get to a largish portfolio, it's meaningless to buy in anything less than 10k in my case because it would be such a small single digit percentage of my total sum. So i only invested in two equities.

    I'm sure many of you have the same problem. Makes drip feeding a complete waste of time.

    I just filled my car fuel tank up. When you drive as much as I do it makes filling anything less than a full tank a complete waste of time.

    I just brushed my teeth. When you have as many teeth as I do it's a waste of time doing them individually as they are each single digit percentages of my entire mouth.

    I've just bought another double wardrobe...... when one's wife has as many clothes and shoes as mine does, it's pointless buying a anything less than a double wardrobe at any one time as it would be a complete waste of time.......

    I!!!8217;ve just stocked up on loo roll. When one has a thing for spicy food, it!!!8217;s pointless buying anything less than a 16-pack as it would be a waste of time!

    I've just read the OP thousands of times, non-stop, for hours on end because reading it just once would only take up a tiny fraction of my time.

    I am sure other forum members are in a similar position.

    Stealing individual biscuits is meaningless.

    Unless it's somebody else's bed.

    Since I read the OP yesterday evening I've been outside with my head torch on counting every single blade of grass in my front garden, as because we all know by now, counting less than all of them would be a complete waste of time.

    I'm too shagged out for biscuits, I'm off to bed.

    You could have simply posted "Look at how much money I have" but I guess that would have been a little crass and in poor taste.

    I've just used up my full ISA allowance, when you get to a largish portfolio, it's meaningless to buy in anything less than 10k in my case because it would be such a small single digit percentage of my total sum. So i only invested in two equities.

    I'm sure many of you have the same problem. Makes drip feeding a complete waste of time.

    I just pay upfront and buy gentrified slaves. Drip feeding salaries to servant employees is frankly meaningless to me.
