Says Jennifer Aniston. What is not mentioned is that it can be a chore as well as a privilege at times. Coming up for 32 and no marriage proposals yet. Which means paying all my bills myself and doing all the heavy lifting. Noone putting dinner on the table when I get home or asking how my day was.

But yes, it truly is a blessing.

"Don't wait for your white knight! Be your own one!" God help me if I hear any more clichéd crap like that!

Things go viral all the time, for no good reason, really...
But this is a great interview. This lady is somewhat misinformed, but she makes her point without being an ass about it.

The result was so close that I don't think it's fair to leave the EU when half the country disagrees.
We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less than 75% there should be another referendum.

Tattooist didn't carry out my design to instruction and refused to give me a refund when I pointed out that what was inked on me was not what I had specified. Very poor customer service, bad attitude when I was trying to politely point out the mistake and would not even negotiate a partial refund when I suggested it. Gentleman who had booked my appointment understood what I wanted but failed to communicate this to the artist who ended up doing the inking. When I attended my appointment they didn't seem sure of what I wanted or where I wanted it, despite having explained all this when I booked the appointment a week beforehand. Bad levels of hygiene too with people eating in the tattooing area, knocking into the chair as they were doing so. Enter at your own risk. Make sure that they know what it is you want. I wasn't trying to dispute the artist's knowledge and experience (as was implied by the lady in question), merely asking for a refund as that's what businesses are supposed to do when they haven't met standards required. This reasonable request was met with derision and aggression.
