For a change of pace, Because I said in work around 3 weeks ago "I generally don't like smartphones as they are conversation killers" one of the women has put in a complaint about me being against the staff having phones etc... which I never said.

Seriously, You go against the herd mentality of "muh phones" and all hell breaks loose.

I know right, as soon as you try to make a gentle observation about a true thing, people freak out like you trying to take away something holy.


kinda sad.

I have a very basic mobile phone, No internet, No touch screen, No camera, Just text, Phone, The ability to store numbers and an alarm, Somehow this make me weird and according to quite a few people I've interacted with, Other should be wary of someone like me because I don't have a smart phone.


The word "Sheeple" comes to mind.

I applaud you sir, holding out on a basic phone on principle, its a good thing and one i wish more people would do.


I do have a smartphone but its very cheap and i avoid any and all social media where most of this pressure comes from to begin with, but being able to look up stuff or have my spotify playlist with me on the go is kind of a lovely luxury to have.

If you like them then good for you, That's always been my mindset, But it's the fact that because I have made a choice that doesn't align with the herd I've had people nearly get physically violent with me... because of me NOT wanting a smartphone, Completely insane.

So Theresa May is soon gone and we're getting an emergency PM in the next 10 days, possible Gove or Hunt. Not sure how they manage to find worse people with each resignation, maybe it's time they let their membership vote for a party leader rather than letting their internal toss fest decide the countries fate every time.

Good, because in all honesty even I was starting to worry.

As every day passed she seemed more and more crazy, determined to Brexit in whatever way or means possible. Honestly, she was starting to scare me, and believe me I have seen it all, being a monthly patient at my local nut shop (the psychs).

I think she seriously lost the plot, and became so encompassed in narcissism she would have seen the entire country collapse into rack and ruin. -edit (dammit man, finish sentences !!) just so that she could win, and say she had done it. It almost reminds me of Hitler, with a fanny.
