People used to talk about the shared universe of Quentin Tarantino’s films. Vincent Vega is the brother of Mr Blonde, Alabama (from True Romance) is mentioned by Mr White etc.
I wonder if the Winston Wolf Direct Line insurance adverts are supposed to take place in the same universe and, if so,what prompted the character’s move from LA to the UK.
He was forced to leave LA when a pair of Russian meerkats came in and put the squeeze on him.

Really GmG's when a gaggle of teenage scrotes sit in front of you seconds before a film is about to start (in a half empty cinema).

+ 20% annoyance if one of them has knockout strength BO.

  I just wish they'd stop fetishising the 1980s

How is Peter Kay supposed to do his job then?

The time we 'close' is when the doors are locked, not when you start thinking about maybe finishing up and moving out....
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Bunch of programs I'm working in getting replaced by new versions with new interfaces. Which all look like they're made with a smart phone in mind, by someone who neither used a smart phone or a computer in their lives.

Instead of one option button, there are three of them. Spread out all over the screen. One which looks like a gear. Another three dots. One is written in text...

And with one of the programs being phased out, not all it's functions has. So I have to write something in one program and use another as a viewer for said text due to there being a very old program working in the background. When calling in asking about the how's and why's on earth they couldn't have waited releasing it in a finished form I'm told that:
--NEW THINGS ARE GOOD.
--I KNOW IT CAN FEEL HARD TO LEARN NEW THINGS.
