The reviews are GLOWING

I do like the breadth of the WHSmith magazines section, but it's also literally the only option because Borders is dead :(
 
The WHS signage is so dated. Even Holland and Barrett has had an upgrade! Of course the other one still rooted in the 1960s is BOOTS but at least that has some comedy value
 
On the random things you hate front, has anyone EVER been to a Burger King which wasn’t TATTY AND FILTHY?
 
The vegan options in BK are miles better than any of the other places, so unfortunately I do have to attend their, yes, RATHER TATTY AND WORN OUT venues more often.

I used to like their spicy bean burgers :disco:

But why are the (I hate to use this word in this context but hey ho) restaurants so SCABBY?

I fear since the King passed away the money is being funnelled into all sorts of seedy ventures :(
 
I recently received a bit of a promotion at work and have had quite a significant salary increase (only a secondment for now). Over the last month I have been inundated with offers for credit cards and loans - way more than usual. Is this related? How do they suddenly know?
 
I have no issue with the word 'awesome' itself - when used in the sense of something inspiring awe, like the view of a mountain at sunset, or time travel or something. It's the use of it for the most mundane things as a synonym for 'quite good' which pisses me off.

My flatmate had this habit a few years ago. Something like:

“Fancy a takeaway tonight?”
“Sure”
“Awesome!”

That’s thankfully died down and now her repeated phrase is “that doesn’t surprise me” as a reaction to absolutely everything. It could be something totally unpredictable like an alien invasion, but met with “doesn’t surprise me”. Is it some kind of subtle proclamation of intelligence or nonchalance?

I would probably plump for lack of vocabulary.
 
The results days being discussed all day (GCSEs, BTECs, T-Levels, A-Levels) - in particular them showing the students with mostly A*s, distinctions, or certain personalities just showing off getting their results on TV. Just take the envelope home and celebrate quietly if it's good...

I opened my SATs at school, but took them home for GCSEs and, A-Levels - mine were teacher-assessed, like the ones who got their results today. Exceptional at exams ≠ student who is actually intelligent.

Absolutely. Firstly who the hell cares about random 18 year olds annually opening envelopes live on TV, especially when they cherry-pick the A* students for obvious reasons?

And why does it always have to be a national news story about increasing/decreasing pass rates? You can’t constantly improve year after year, and when they do, the accusations of dumbing down grades get thrown around. Then when they don’t, the education system comes under scrutiny anyway. What purpose does this serve?
