    The amount of people who mix up Plymouth and Portsmouth. There's 140 miles between both cities...

    This might not be a simple one but anyway.

    Wake up on a lazy day and find a missed call from somebody who probably wants you to do something for them, which is going to take time. You want to do something of your own which also takes time.
    You decide to call them and find out what they want, so you can get it out of the way as early as possible and do your own thing. But they don't answer or can't talk and say they'll call you back later.
    So the only choices are to either wait till the call you, which might be hours that you won't be able to do your own thing in, or start your own thing and risk the possibility that you'll have to stop (which is an inconvenience) when they call.

    I made this as generic as possible because it's a very common occurrence for me, with many different people and things to do.

    A very inelegant solution: extra pair of pants over your tights. A friend at work showed me that and it's proper genius.

    Solution: Dont ring them back or answer your phone on your day off! :D

    That's the norm for me. It's the rare snot that will come out.

    if it's the kind of snot that lies firmly onto the nasal walls, put a tissue over your finger, stick it up your nose and twist it around. Voila. If it's the having-a-cold insistent snot that has the density of rubber and the texture of those glue balls we used to make in school, boil water with salt and inhale the fumes.

    I've never understood why toenails are such horrid things even when I try hard to keep them neat.

    My guess is because your toes are more badly treated than your fingers in everyday life.
    Try to walk on your hands for a while, with them in appropriately sized socks and shoes, without your feet touching the ground or wearing anything on them and you'll reverse the situation. ;)
