…factor in my home
Tech. Printers that don’t work. Sky bins that change off. And you simply go, “Oh, God! Why can’t everything just work?” The printer’s flashing a gentle at you and also you go, “I don’t know what any of these buttons mean.” I simply need it to print – print in black and white. I don’t care concerning the colors. Oh god, I hate it.
Procrastination – placing issues off, urgent snooze endlessly on the alarm, leaving mail unopened. It’s virtually like your physique is daring itself not to do something. This is why I like having a writing associate – it makes you get on and do it. On my very own, I’m my very own worst enemy.
I went to a lot of colleges – about 9, I suppose [Saunders’s father served in the Royal Air Force]. There was that terrible sick feeling if you go into a new faculty and sometimes it wasn’t the primary day of time period.

Can I simply say… what is occurring with eyebrows? Perfectly lovely-looking women need to paint these large black eyebrows on and I simply don’t perceive. It doesn’t appear, to me, to be engaging. I discover them extraordinary. I can’t cease them.
…absolutely the worst…
Cookies. “Will you accept these cookies?” I spend my life now going, “no, I won’t accept them” after which six bloody home windows later I’m given one thing the place I discover there’s nowhere to click on to say I don’t need cookies, so I simply go, “Oh, accept cookies then!” Also you purchase one thing on-line and you then get 12 emails saying, “How is it? How was your delivery?” and also you go, “f— off!” It’s simply junk. Constant junk.
