In my time, I’m well aware that I’ve been known to be an annoying pedant:
- I’ve been the guy to point out when people have flags upside down.
- I’ve been annoyed that people don’t cook toast properly (justifiably in your case Ian!)
- I’ve been someone who re-arranges people cutlery draws to put them in the correct order.
Last week we bought a new cutlery set. Our old one was getting tatty and the shiny bits were starting to wear off, so we popped down to Freeport and bought a new one.
Sometimes life just conspires to give you a metaphorical middle finger…
THE BASTARD KNIVES DONT FIT IN THE FUCKING KNIFE SLOT!
I’ve had to break the universally accepted way to fill a cutlery drawer and put the knives across the bottom because they are about 3mm too long for the correct space.

Won’t the knives go in at a bit of an angle?
I quite like all the spoons side by side. A bit of spoon solidarity. Excellent.
Can I have the knife with the bear on it?
You should have the knife with the bear on it, and I’ll have the fork with the bear on it. Do you need the spoons with the bears on them too?
I reckon he should pack up all the bear cutlery and send it to us. Given my plethora of spoons, it’s only fair you should get it, mate.
I expect he’ll soon have a new set of hand-painted cutlery all made from porcelain and made in that painted mug shop in Chapeltown or wherever, so at that point he can just send you all this cutlery. Won’t be long now.
I still haven’t received anything bear-related or fork-shaped. What about you?
Nothing. Absolutely unbelievable.
Well this is going the opposite of bells, this is going… wait, what’s the opposite of a bell? Is it a lampshade?
I believe so. The International Dictionary of Opposites certainly seems to agree.
