Tackling life’s little frustrations, with a smile

Tackling life’s little frustrations, with a smile

Life can be crazy busy at the best of times, and we’ve all experienced occasions when something little tips us over the edge after having had ‘one of those days’. This month, we’re here to help you lighten the rage load with Ski’s fun take on five frustrations we all can relate to…

Facebook spoilers

As the winter months draw in, nothing rivals settling down on the sofa with a glass of wine in hand, ready to binge-watch your favourite TV series. That is, until you reach the final episode, check your Facebook newsfeed and come across a much unwanted spoiler. Weeks of watching (okay, hours..!) unravels in seconds. Sadly, things only worsen when you realise you have to wait a whole year for the next series after being left with the cliff-hanger finale. WHY?!

Computer chaos

Don’t get us wrong; we’re all for modern technology and we’d be completely lost without the internet and laptops (how else would we know what our children get up to?!), but there are two words which instil fear among all of us: SLOW WI-FI. Our frustration reaches new heights, particularly when videos are constantly ‘buffering’. Don’t even get us started on software updates – why does the time remaining always keep increasing?

Queuing etiquette

As proud Brits, we know all the rules around queuing. So, when people fail to abide by these unspoken rules, we react the only way we know how - by tutting, rolling our eyes and tapping our foot just so the offender knows exactly how we feel. It’s only after a good 10 minutes of said tapping, huffing and eye-rolling, that we realise that it’s actually us who is in the wrong queue. Whoops…

Wine woes

It’s a Friday evening and you’ve spent time at the supermarket finding the perfect wine for tonight. As usual, you make sure it’s got a pretty picture on the label and has a fancy name, just so the cashier knows you’re classy. However, it’s only when arrive home that you realise you’ve bought wine with a cork rather than screw top, and of course, the corkscrew is nowhere to be found. Panic ensues and you begin to Google a step by step guide on how to open your bottle with a shoe. Good luck with that!

Fridge raiders

When you’ve battled the food aisles and competed in the trolley bashing wars at your local supermarket, all in a bid to make sure your family is well fed and the cupboards are fully stocked for the week ahead, there’s nothing more frustrating than when the kids raid its contents in five minutes flat. You come back to find all that’s left is a couple of eggs, some marmalade and a tin of baked beans. You’re sure Nigella would be able to whip something up, but perhaps a take away is in order instead.
