Things I learnt today: don't try and update the CEO's speech while they're reading from it live via Sharepoint. Cue CEO losing their train of thought and looking like a muppet in front of hundreds of staff.

Too early to start drinking? No? Cool thanks

I just found out today that an important medical document for one of my kids was misdelivered to a different address and had already been opened. The address on the envelope was correct, confirmed by the medical facility to whom the letter was returned when they called me. So Aus Post fucked up and delivered it to the wrong address and some random fucker opened it and then wrote "not at this address" on the envelope.
I await a response from my complaint to Aus Post.

epson printers. printing a black and white document, it stops after one page as its out of magenta. why on a black and white print i dont know. lucky i have a spare pack of genuine epson ink, it wont recognise the new cartridge. and whilst thats throwing an error it wont scan a document either until i go into the bin to find the old empty one.

Lucky it wasnt anything important, only hospital admission documents. is it appropriate to launch the whole printer through an officeworks window when i return ink and printer for refund?

Totally warranted. Just remember... Unless you use the genuine Epson returns window, it'll bounce off unharmed...

LTIH – Why do recipes mix ingredient amounts across so many measurements???
Like butter – should be simple. But no...
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • 125g of butter
  • 2 sticks of butter [in stupid 'murican recipes]
  • ... etc
Not to mention all the shit that can be compacted or settle in different physical volumes based on the packing efficiency of its shape.

Just tell me how many grams of everything I need. Yes - even wet ingredients like eggs/milk/water/oil.
I can haz scales - I weighs all the things.

That's crap!

We had a small padded envelope delivered to our place with the completely wrong address on it a few weeks back, was for a house around the corner in another street. I jumped on the bike an delivered it correctly myself.
Next day got a knock on the door, it was the van driver looking for the miss-delivered package lol.

Best thing I ever did was bought a cheap little b & w laser printer for home. I used to have that exact issue with another brand colour inkjet, drove me up the wall, and also couldn't buy individual colour cartridges!
Hardly ever have to change cartridges now and has been a godsend for the amount of printing we're having to do because of home schooling.

Brother aren’t much better. Out of toner also means you can’t turn it off, use the scanner or fax. Go figure.

that's concerning, brother laser printers were going to be the next step as they come well recommended. I dont do a high volume of printing but it produces a disproportional amount of issues right now

Yeah, same. We had a letter for a house with the same number, different street not far away. So I took the kids for a walk and delivered it to the correct place.

Similar here, I write on it/them 'delivered to 1234', take the dog for a walk a deliver it to the right address. Doesnt happen that often.

I think I wrote about it before but we had a big parcel misdelivered. It was someone else's name but our address. Sender was on box so I called, explained the situation and after some confusion by them they understood I was leaving them my details so they could call the proper recipient who could then pick up the package. 2 days later had a call on my mobile from someone in the same street albeit completely different number. She came over and picked up the package. Was surprised it wasn't opened. Well it wasn't mine and I didn't need to open it to find the sender. Lady explained it was amost a thousand dollars worth of 'products'. Yeah, ok. She left with the package. I then googoolleedddooo'd the company. Essential fucking oils and crystals! I nearly pissed myself.
