    Following on from WWI's thread, what about the opposite feeling?
    The moment, when lying warmly in bed waiting for the alarm to go off, you realise it should have gone off half an hour ago and you are now desperately late for your wedding/court appearance/appraisal/beauticians appointment.

    Realising that when you have actually indeed done a crucial piece of homework or coursework, you then remember it is at home, 2 hours away on the printer! :cry:

    When you're half way to the bus stop and it starts to rain. You know that if you go back you'll miss the bus, but if you don't go back your hair will go hideously curly/frizzy and you'll have to avoid people and probably as a result have a pointless shopping trip anyway.

    When you look at your bank balance and it's a lot more negative than you thought it was.

    You break something that's not yours.

    Leaving work after a long day, getting to your car, and realizing that the doors are locked and the keys are inside.

    Hitting a cracking top C on a concert, then realising with horror it was a beat early, right in the middle of a rest where no-one else was playing, and is now echoing around the church as if to say "HA-ha" in the manner of Nelson off the Simpsons. Then wishing for a trap door to open beneath you.
    Yes, it was me!

    The moment when you catch sight of yourself in a mirror at work and realise that when your Number 2 daughter gave you a hug this morning she left a snotty, yoghurty slick down the shoulder of your dark jacket........

    Apparently there's a new word for these moments, theyre called "ohnoseconds"!

    When you're walking around with either your skirt tucked in your pants/tights, your shirt buttoned up wrongly or pen/mark on you and nobody has told you about it all day!

    When you need the loo, but you can't find one...

    Dropping your contact lense on the wet toilet floor of a filthy British Rail train (circa 1989) :(

    Changing the bin-bag in the in-cupboard kitchen bin, and it splits spewing assorted 3-day old kitchen **** all over the contents, and into the darkest recesses of the cupboard.:mad:

    Pressing "delete" after selecting the wrong document and then stupidly hitting enter when it asks you to confirm......like I did today with the whole of Y9's reports :oops:

    Remembering that you should have picked up a new pack of toilet paper at a very inopportune moment :(

    ... when you've travelled 300 miles and realised you left an important item at home.

    (the number of times I've done that one!)

    Oi! Thanks a lot for the paradigm thievery Bad Bird Badger.
    There's me, the epitome of hope, trying to infuse a little joy into the working day, and you come with your big ol' badger claws and tear it to shreds with cynical pessimism.

    No wait...
    Fair do's......life's a bit **** in all honesty!

    So, things that are sent to try us...?

    What about those rogue SAS-style coffee granules that sneak onto your sugar spoon and spoil a perfectly good breakfast cereal. DAMN, I hate that.

    Or waiting for a new bank card in the post (after you sandwiched the last one beneath your fat ****, a lighter and a brick wall) and every new day it STILL hasn't come. Actually - banks fullstop.

    Idley nibbling the end of you pen whilst deep in thought, then finding yourself deep in sticky blue ****e.

    That'll do for now although I feel there may be more on the horizon.

    Really loving the fact that it's Friday........then being reminded by some snooty ***** bitch of a **** receptionist, that I've put my name down for overtime tomorrow.

    gettin off the coach at a contest and realising your jacket/instrument/mouthpiece/music is still in the bandroom or car...

    deleting all your english coursework files instead of your random junk files... (i'm never gunna forgive myself for that)

    thinking you have another week to finish said english coursework, only to be informed by smug friend that it is in fact due in within the next hour...

    Playing the first bar of a piece only to realise they've given you an EEb copy instead of BBb (or vice versa) - does wonders for your transposition skills, especially if it's a long piece ;)
