 Well of course, and donít forget that this is a movement for and about men, make no mistake about that. Money + men = free pass.

Dear Random Man,
your friends next door might not mind you ringing their doorbell in the middle of the night, but I object to you ringing my doorbell in the middle of the night when they don't answer, asking me if they're in or not.
I don't know if they're in, but if they've got any sense they'll be in bed. Like I was! >:(

I don't think he was entirely sober, no. He claimed to be "just passing" and thought he'd ring the bell. As you do at 12.15am.
When I suggested that his friend might be in bed, he said, "When he was a student he'd be out till 3am!" to which I pointed out that he was no longer a student but a married man with 2 small children and was probably asleep.
I saw my neighbours this morning and the first thing they said was, "We're really sorry about last night!"
I said it was fine, the worst thing was the minute's worry I'd had between hearing the bell and getting to the door and seeing it was just a drunk fella.

Dear (non-GB) group,
one word: google.
Seriously, you should try it.

(Questions I have had in the last week include "What is parkour?" and "How do I contact Sadiq Khan?" and "What is the plot of Mean Girls?" These are from adults. With internet access.)

Dear non-GBer,

How cavalier you are dismissing my identity. And you're one of the good guys! Wow! Just fucking Wow!

Dear Marx Bros,

Once again it is less grief to just do without the stuff I need than to try and get useful help from you.

Dear non-GB,
I have to assume you aren't winding me up deliberately, but dear god, will you just shut the fuck up?
I do my best in a very demanding job and all you do is nitpick and imply that I'm not doing my job properly or that I do it 'by the book', (I'm not sure those statements aren't mutually exclusive, by the way). I try really hard to rise above it because I want to maintain a level of professionalism, but I do reserve the right to correct you, politely, when you say things which are demonstrably untrue. You can't hide behind the claim I am just 'assuming' criticism when everyone else can see that that is exactly what you mean.
Gods give me strength ::)

Commiserations Musette, your annoying colleague sounds like my ex-colleague. The number of times I wished I could banish her to room 101.

Thanks PushingThru. The thing is, I'm sure they mean well, deep down, it's just the way they go about things is inappropriate and disruptive, like a grenade thrown into an otherwise calm environment.
Still, I'm on holiday next week so I can put it all to one side for a few days :)
