^ Someone posted this on Facebook about the local papers where I live too, but I wondered if it's because they can't get much advertising revenue at the moment so they need to do this to be able to pay their staff? Also people are buying a lot less physical papers right now.

^Possibly. Methink they won't go back to the old system once the lockdown is over though.

^ also my neighbour

He's spent every single day since lockdown doing stupid 'jobs' that don't need doing to his house, like re-roofing his immaculate shed, just because it makes him feel better to be busy.
Which means that while we're all stuck in ill, all we can hear is hammers banging and drills going.
Asshat.

Why can't they just watch tv or read a book or something?

Maybe people are struggling and dealing with the lockdown in their own different ways.

Awful, I know.

^ no, my neighbour really is an asshat.

I was talking to my husband about it earlier and he said he'd fallen out with him a few months ago because he parks his car halfway over our driveway and it makes it really hard to get in and out of the drive, he hadn't told me before because he knows I hate conflict.

I know people are struggling a lot at the moment, but also some people are selfish asshats too.

People making a ridiculous amount of noise all day with their DIY jobs are obviously asshats.

People doing quiet, pointless chores to keep themselves busy aren't.

yep, I see your distinction x

That's what was annoying me, the selfishness of doing something incredibly noisy outside every single day, despite being surrounded by other houses, not the keeping busy. I expect if I hadn't been so ill then I would be pointlessly rearranging all my kitchen cupboards by now.

Asshats

I’ve learned a new word. Thankyou for the quarantine vocabulary lesson. I will be applying it to a lot of people I know from now on.

Yep. I mean ofcourse making excessive amounts of noise or something isn't on but most people are just trying to get through the days somehow and that often involves ways of keeping busy. I have never heard so many people mowing their lawns so often where I live as they are at the moment!

Oh dear,...I'm afraid I'm another neighbour complainer,..

Think I'm the only one in my street who is working through the lockdown,
It's kind of annoying coming home tired and a bit pissed off from working only to have neighbours car completely blocking my driveway,
When I do get parked about 1/4 of a mile away (busy street, everyone at home, loads of people with 2 or 3 car families ) the same neighbour is out in their garden talking loudly on their phone about how annoying lockdown is as they can't get their regular fix of sitting in the pub,
He has music playing loudly too, so, guess I'm not sitting in my garden then, chilling in the sun,..

After about 5 hours I eventually get a chance to get my car into the driveway, ..

I'm only grateful that I'm 2 doors away and when I'm indoors I can't hear his music or his incredibly loud phone conversations,... ASSHAT

Could just be my period speaking, but I could not give less of a shit about people's running routes or how far three have run. Nor do I want to see their post-run sweat photos.

^ that doesn't sound like an unreasonable position to take. Social media is typically full of people over-egging their own achievements.

Something annoying me right now is the inability to find plain old metal razor blades in the shops any more - I don't want to create a load of single-use plastic junk just to have a shave.

^^ Same, I have no interest in it at all. Well done for running, but I don't need to know the distance.

the building company I work for has had us all in together working right through the Covid-19 lockdown,

there's been no extra pay, no bonus,. nothing,..

now the management have stipulated that we all must take 40% of our allocated holidays by June,. bit of a cheek...

corporate money-grabbing shysters,... don't give a toss about people on the front line whilst all the office staff work at home.

Robins. They come visit (which I like) but disappear before I can nab a decent photo. I saw a pair on my gate today and they flew off as soon as I picked up my phone. They seem to like my questionable taste in music though so I’ll keep bribing them with food.

Neighbours who drop by when you’re in the garden for an over the fence chat. Knock at my door when I’m inside so I can have the choice to pretend I had my earphones on.

Forgetting to eat then eating any junk on hand because it will take too long to cook something and now the hanger pains are suddenly taking over your rational brain.
