    The fat pooling at the bottom left quadrant of the frying pan reminds me that I need to get the spirit level out and adjust the feet on the new cooker.

    They'll get fed up with unlocking it before I get fed up with locking it. We've been down this road before, and They have no staying power
    Our dustmen have a pass key, the gate buzz locks behind them as they leave

    Ours are supposed to have a key, but it seems to be highly variable whether or not they know that they have one. Also, since the gate was installed about fourteen years ago recycling has become a separate bin and collection (though on the same day), but it seems nobody thought to give the recycling crew a key, so the gate needs to be left open anyway

    People are just plain dumb.

    It's easy to turn conversations around if you for example focus on a particular demographic e.g. kids. So you start asking questions about girls then extend it to all kids.

    Anyway internationals men's day is later in the year.

    https://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme states the 8th. Then again what would you expect from women - randomly changing dates is standard for them.
