Maybe you need to change the colour of your ball on the your monitor so people know how to explain it to you.

Google maps, when I'm viewing directions to my next site on my work tablet in landscape orientation. It shows the route and the time, but NOT the distance. It was only a few weeks ago that I discovered it shows the mileage if it's in portrait orientation. I need to know the mileage to record my ETA, when I show that I'm on route to my next call, but generally I much prefer to use my tablet in landscape orientation.

Similarly, but conversely, I use the myFitnessPal app, not only in a vain attempt to keep within my recommended daily calorie limit, but also to add up the amount of carbohydrates in a meal, so I can work out how much insulin I need to inject. But the diary view only shows carbs in landscape orientation, so I have to turn my phone around. It's the tiniest of petty irritations, but it's always there.

Naturally, I leave switches on all the time.

Hang on... Do you leave them on or are you not able to stand them being left on?

I don't like them being on when there's no plug in them. I'll always turn them off too.

MrsA has taken this to the extreme by plugging the Alexa into the socket controlled by the Alexa and the ordering it off. Then complains the lights no longer function.

This sounds like a certain way to end up with a full-on, HAL-from-2001 style Alexa break down on your hands. What will you do when she refuses to turn off the socket?

I’m like this, but only in large open rooms for some odd reason. If the socket is hidden from some angles by furniture or what have you I don’t care about it, but if it’s always visible, I’ve got to switch it off.

Jem likes to wind me up at our TKD lessons by switching back on the sockets that I switch off during our warm-up run around the room.

I like to dip my cheese sandwiches in soup. You can imagine the problems if it's grated cheese, the cheese doesn't stay on the sandwich.

Does it tase better because it's grated, or is it different cheese that's grated ... IYSWIM.\

Or, to ask a different question, if you have a block of cheese and grate some of it, and slice some of it, do slices tase different to gratings?
