Signs summer's on it's way - I get my arse kicked by the mother of all morning sweats at 7am...

Really could have done with more sleep.

Surely all these teams claim residence all over the "world" to avoid taxes, but you are right to wonder why bring attention to that point.

Not as individuals they won't. The US taxes its citizens based on citizenship, not residency, so they'd still have to file US returns and owe the US tax (given their inflated salaries). It's called FATCA and it's why thousands of Americans, including me, have renounced their citizenship these last few years.

Fuck you Google, gmail was working perfectly fucking fine before you fucked it up.

Now, it's slow, takes ages to update and for what ever reason the browser side sometimes doesn't tell the gmail server you've read an email... And of course, google hasn't emailed users to tell them anything about either the change or whether or not they're going to fix the current problems.

Oh for fuck's sake.

The Phantom Courier strikes again, this time by leaving a "no one was here" note after not fucking knocking on the door. I know this because the time it's logged at was the same time I'd left the headset off one ear to listen out for a fucking knock at the door.

Gaaaaah.

And I need the fucking package due to it containing insoles to replace the current pretty worn out set. So I hopefully no longer get sore feet if I'm on my feet for too long.

That's just how they work now days. I work from home, and on days I am expecting a delivery I pay extra attention. 8/9 times out of 10, I see the carrier stop at the mailbox and put the "you weren't home" slip in, without ever coming to my door.

Just as annoying is when they put something that's supposed to be signed for in the postbox then you get a notification it's been delivered and signed for. Not by me it hasn't!

Almost as annoying as opening your garage the morning after a heavy rain, and finding a soggy box that was just left there by the courier.
