For everyone who has never had to leave a phone call or meeting - there is a Southern phrase of much power
'Let me let you go'
It's polite, and gives the other person a feeling that they too wanted the meeting to stop. I was thrilled to have seen a meme somewhere that shared this gift with the world
I lost the meme, but there is the information.
UK politics, free school meals
In this whole so-called u-turn over free school meals, there is no mention about what would work best for parents and their children. They are just poor and don't get to decide anything, just have to be happy with any handout the govt begrudgingly gives. And of course, is any of the food culturally specific?
uk gov have stated the law to grant impunity to secret police will apply in cases of "national security, preventing crime, and anything that threatens uk economy" i.e. labour, anticapitalists, unions, etc.
so basically the same shit that the uk state has always done: spying on innocent people and occasionally murdering them. burn the uk
Relatable sea shanty topics:
- the boss sucks and needs to pay me
- I could use a drink
- I miss my SO/family
- this work is hard
- remembering other times work was hard
- hunting whales is rough
