"you can't do that"

This is the one thing that winds me up!!! I know exactly what I can and can't do legally, do not think that because your mate studies law or your a facebook armchair lawyer that you know better than me.

'Can you just tell me the command you're using'...

Does my nut in! There's a reason you don't know said command, it's usually because you don't understand what needs doing!

This is the same as "It's not in my/our remit"

When I ask a member of staff to do something remotely complicated:

"I've never been shown how to do that"

Even though I've shown them 3 or 4 times in the last

People at work who say "I really must get onto that". Invariably weeks slip by and they don't do it (but they keep saying they need to do it), then it becomes urgent and everyone else has to pitch in to get it sorted in minimal time.

If you know you need to do it...just f***ing do it!

When window cleaning:

"You missed a bit"

"When you've finished, want to clean my car"

When spannering:

"My car is making a strange noise, do you have any idea what it might be?"

When on Facebook:

"Whats the best turbo....?"
Wishes for more power...

Can you play wonderwall?




I get "can you just throw together a quick calc, it'll only take like 5 mins"  usually asked by a project manager who has little knowledge of engineering. Also means that the 5 min calc which isn't checked over will probably be either wrong or over engineered both of which ends up being the engineers fault
