I was more being surprised that the guy drilling above the door was surprised to find something strong there holding up the wall.

Well yes. Especially as you'd think the company would become specialists at installing in our apartment complex since that's their whole business model.

Although he did say he'd not done one in our building before, mainly in the converted mill building which is the main part of the complex.

Even weirder, after drilling 4 holes I was the one who had to suggest to him that it probably went all the way along.

And that was on Thursday. It's now Monday and they are yet to attempt to re-arrange installation. I guess they don't want my money after all.

I'm about to board a plane and I've got a really bad cold. It's going to be a pretty painful couple of hours for me, and the two people sat either side of me no doubt.

The ineptitude of my housing association never ceases to amaze me. We've just had a new intercom/gate locking system installed (completely out of the blue; I just got home one day to find a new panel at the front door) but it hadn't been turned on yet because 1) No one has the new intercom installed in their flat, so you can't answer if someone calls through and 2) they haven't delivered the new fobs yet so we wouldn't be able to open the doors.

Some workers were hear today to wire up the CCTV and said that apparently it's all being turned on tomorrow, but we still don't have fobs. FFS, how difficult is it to deliver key fobs BEFORE you lock all the doors they are needed for?

Watched When Harry Met Sally for the first time in ages the other day and was struck by the lack of phones or other smart technology. People are forced to interact with each other! Yes, some of the interactions consist of playing Pictionary, but the difference was rather striking.

My flatmate got engaged today. They've been together for maybe 9-12 months I think, and the other guy is the biggest twat I've ever met. Takes stupid positions over things just to be contrary, and does that annoying thing of massively overcompensating for his insecurity by pretending he's super confident. He's just so fucking irritating. My flatmate has horrendous taste in guys.

Well they moved in with you so their taste can't be all bad.

Watching the government eat itself is tremendously entertaining, although I suspect the punchline is going to be economic collapse in two years, at which point we'll all get to eat each other. RIP AND TEAR.
