It's one thing when you listen to your collection of music on shuffle, but it's another when you listen to an album on shuffle. It's like you are going to listen to all the songs anyway, why not just listen to them in their intended order.  

Because a change is as good as a holiday.

He's also referring Abbey Road specifically because there is more to it when listened to in sequence. Not to put down shuffling The Beatles; it is one of my favorite things to do.

Many albums, like Abbey Road, have an order that the songs were meant to be in. Breaking that order interrupts the flow of the album. Again, I'm not against shuffling in general, like an whole artist or your whole collection or something like that, but to listen to an album in a random track order is kinda annoying, to me at least.

While I normally don't find it bothersome to play albums on shuffle, I can understand where ya'll are coming from with Abbey Road. They seem to flow so well into each other I find it hard to not listen to them in their original order.

Same.

A local Classic Rock station plays a vinyl album side each evening at 7- the name of the segment is Vinyl Siding - clever. The other night, they played Side 2 of the Blue Album. It's been decades since I've had that album and hearing 'Magical Mystery Tour' after 'The Fool On The Hill' was weird.

Wholeheartedly agree. I won't talk just to break up the silence and I generally have very little to say as I prefer to get on with life which often isn't interesting enough to warrant discussion; too much of what is said is needless. For being around people it's a major flaw but I just have to get on with it.

Being unwell on holiday. I have an eye infection which has fecked my general health. Cost me around £130 to go see a doctor which took about 3 minutes, 2 minutes 45 seconds of which was him typing in his computer and writing out a prescription.

Bad luck, @meanmistermustard . Does the prognosis include your feeling better before the end of the holiday? 

An apple to your good health, my friend. apple01

My peeve is people who can't follow simple directions, no matter how carefully laid out, because they are trying to do the job too damn fast. I requested a document from another department with crystal clear directions to make sure certain wording appeared on it. I even typed it all out so all they to do was copy and paste. I got the document back and the info was nowhere to be found.

One of my language students- for the past 3 weeks I have been getting different excuses as to why they aren't coming. 1st one was exams- understandable, 2nd was school quiz-.....ok, now today I've got that they're sick.

 

Oh mate, if I get another call from someone else they're getting your time slot, it's at a prime time and there's no reason why I should be financially losing out every week because you won't come. 

 

My Friday ones are awful for attendance, every week there's at least one that doesn't show, whereas my Saturday people I have a full house the entire day. 

 

Update: As of this evening, I have the following excuses

4pm- Won't see me for 2 weeks

5pm- Will see me next week

6pm- Going to a disco (they had me told this 2 weeks in advance, I'll let it pass)

7pm- On.....for now

8pm- Sick

 

Bloody hell.

Ah no, I need the money to live a-hard-days-night-george-10

I have everything done for college anyways and I always like to see them because I have a cool bunch of kids this year. All nice, and do their work for me. 

It's very rewarding to see somebody finally get something that they've spent years not understanding.

Pet peeve -- When people ask you, "How are we doing?"

Well, you are not part of we. And if you were, how would I know how both of us were doing?

"Remember, we are writing in the sky instead of on paper--that's our song. Lift your eyes and look up in the sky. There's our message. Lift your eyes again and look around you, and you will see that you are walking in the sky, which extends to the ground. We are all part of the sky, more so than of the ground. Remember, we love you." --John Lennon and Yoko Ono

pet peeve: when the only thing people post about on Facebook is politics. Usually these are people who have a lot of hatred for anybody who doesn't agree with them, and also, most of these people I have been friends with don't like to fact-check before they repost something. Sometimes these types of people can be amusing (very seldom occurrence), but Facebook mainly is a tool to let people know what and how you're doing in life - your feed shouldn't just be a bunch of rants on how much you hate "snowflakes" because NOBODY CARES.

The, dare I say it, lack of respect for language speakers. I'm applying for a job with the county council that requires you to have one or more major European languages, so they've limited the candidate pool considerably by that. Now learning languages doesn't come cheap, I've spent a considerable amount of money on going abroad, buying books, DVDs whatever in French and German....but the pay is minimum wage.

 

¿Que I'm not an unskilled worker, I have working knowledge of two major European languages (not to toot my own horn) where people normally have only English. So why should I be paid the same as a person working as a waiter in a restaurant?!?!??!?!

 

In saying that.....I probably will still apply for it....
