When clear tape keeps breaking in half, or stripping off into to tiny pieces. I just need a whole piece to tape my record jacket back together, please!

When something bad happens and no-one owns up to it.

I and about 90 others experienced this yesterday when someone lost a frisbee during gym class and the teachers were keeping us outside until we'd found it. Students were climbing and crawling under fences and scouring through sharp spiky plants and the whole shebang, and that was only the people that weren't standing around and doing nothing!  I swear, we must have spent at least an hour looking for the flippin' thing! And we never found it!  

They eventually let us in after telling us that our equipment privileges could be taken away for the next year, and we headed off to the classes that we were unbelievably late for.

Something similar happened to me too. In gym, we were playing volleyball and someone got it stuck in the ceiling. Then, our gym teacher had a 10 minute rant about how we should be "more careful" with equipment, and I was so bloody mad

People who see a birthday wish from Ringo to Paul, and decide that's the time and place to start saying there would be no Paul McCartney without John Lennon , and that John WAS The Beatles, dishing out random insults to other Beatles fans AND Ringo in the process. SMH

So basically, those burgers don't actually have any cheese, that sandwich isn't fresh, the floor isn't slippery at all, and that inventory isn't the largest at all, nor does it contain 20,000 items. 

That's basically it, right? Why else would there be quotation marks around all those words?

I am more disturbed by the one that says Employees Must "Wash Hands" as if it is merely a suggestion.

When people misuse the word "paraphrase." Paraphrase means to repeat a message as originally told, usually in an abridged or shortened way. It does not mean to alter the message or to change it in any way.

I've never heard that @Necko  - where is it from?

Paraphrase definitions from Merriam-Webster

: to say (something that someone else has said or written) using different words

:  to give the meaning of in different words

I think you're misinterpreting what I'm saying. Truth be told, I feel that I could have phrased the above better. You're right with the above definitions. You do use different words, however, the overall message remains the same. I dislike it when people say paraphrase while altering the message of the original in some way.

Yes and people who sit in parked cars facing the wrong direction with their headlights on so you get blinded by them being dipped the wrong way (double blinded if they have the blue bulbs as well!)

And people who drive up to the end of a side road to join a bigger one (usually too fast) and then brake at the last minute whilst looking the wrong way. Gives me a blood pressure spike.

Those are illegal here, you get in crap if you're caught with them by the police.

One of the girls in my business class last year drives at night with her full headlights on because she doesn't know how to dip them. One day she is going to cause an accident because of her stupidity. It's people like her who give female-drivers a bad name a-hard-days-night-paul-11.
