Right now:
Deliberating over an expensive Honda lawnmower, a cheaper Mountfield with a Honda engine, or an even cheaper Webb with a Briggs and Stratton.

Most days:
Deciding which of the 800 video games I own to play, and ending up playing none.

Yeah, it's bollox, innit. We don't even scratch the surface! My eldest, a right-on stoodent, tells me that shipping (as in actual ships) is by far the worst global polluter, and production of meat for human consumption not far behind. Doesn't stop him buying stuff off Amazon or eating beef, mind you.

Still, sorting the yoghurt pots into the right bin does at least alleviate our first-world angst and guilt just a tiny bit.
He's right you know. The 12 biggest container ship emit more CO2 than every single car on the planet combined.

About time they started taxing ship rather than us petrol heads!

Today’s one. Having to put your card pin into the machine rather than using contactless in Tesco because you’ve spent more than £30.

Fml!

Trying to recycle properly at home and teach the 4x25+ year old lodgers (children)it’s for their benifit - whilst pushing the wheelie bin past a petrol V8, a diesel 4x4, a petrol 4x4, a hot hatch and a very hot BMW M 1series.

Then at work we took over a brand new office some 30,000 sq feet, brand new installed ceilings and raised floor - and threw over 75% straight into the bin.
Apologies for the thread swerve, but a hot BMW M1? The original with the drop down doors, a tuned 1 series Or the silly 1M 1/3 series mashup?
