Office worker padlocks milk in work fridge and sparks huge debate

‘I vote not petty’

A staff member sparked a huge debate online, after sharing a photo of padlocked milk in the communal fridge at their place of work.

The office kitchen is where we get to see sides of our colleagues that may reflect how they live at home, as we witness peoples’ weird habits. It can become the battleground where pettiness erupts into disputes and passive aggressive acts, as people grind each other’s gears.

We all know the types; there’s the person who leaves food chunks blocking the plughole, the one who leaves their lunch well past its best before date in the fridge, as it grows a whole mould colony living on it, and those who just dump their dishes in the sink for someone else to do.

In this case, one person had enough of others using their milk so took what some may call ‘extreme measures’ to ensure no one would steal their property — it’s not surprising considering the cost of groceries during the cost of living crisis!

There’s nothing worse than purchasing a pint of milk for making cuppas at work and then opening the fridge to make yourself one only to discover that someone has been sneakily using it and there’s none left for you.

Not only that, they never own up and never replace it!

In a post on Reddit, one user shared a picture of the lengths gone to in order to make sure they have plenty of milk to brew up with at work for the week.

The picture was captioned: ‘Peak pettiness or justifiable security in the office kitchen?’ — and the internet erupted. Users exploded in the comments as they shared their strong opinions on this particular office kitchen etiquette.

One person replied: “It’s kind of both at once. If people didn’t take what’s not theirs there would be no need.

“I wouldn’t go that far with milk but people lost food at the last place I was at. A 12 hour shift with no food ain’t a joke.”

A second chirped: “As someone who used to buy a 2 pints of milk every week, only for it to be completely empty by Wednesday morning, I totally understand the rationale.” Adding: “I vote not petty.”

A third shared: “I’m always happy to share my milk in the office, but the amount of times I have found that MY milk which I bought is completely empty with no replacement offered/available makes me feel this is completely justified.

“Nothing worse than making a cuppa only to find that someone finished the milk and left you high and dry (of milk).”

While fourth agreed: “It’s not any more petty than using a locker to store your belongings, or locking up your bike. It’s not petty to stop people from stealing your stuff.” And a fifth person added: “Having had someone steal my food in work, I totally agree.

“Once bought some chilli spray a few million on the Scoville scale and sprayed it on the underside of my sausage roll ‘lunch’. While I don’t know who did, I do know that someone got a surprise.” — Well, that’s sure to teach them a lesson!

And someone wanted to know: “Where can these be purchased? Asking for a friend.”

Arctic Monkeys spotted boozing in Manchester ‘Spoons

Who could say no to a cheap pint?!

Music fans were left stunned as they spotted the Arctic Monkeys enjoying a standard pint in a Manchester Wetherspoons.

We all knew they were in town after the band performed live over the weekend at Emirates’ Old Trafford Cricket Ground, but no one thought they’d show up at a local Wetherspoons pub.

Perhaps we all expected them to hang out in an exclusive upmarket bar or an uber trendy but pricey craft ale pub, just definitely not a city centre Spoons — of all the classy joints they could have gone to!

The rock stars were seen drinking, as they stood with pints in hand at The Moon Under Water on Deansgate — I guess it’s hard to turn down a cheap pint!

Fans stopped and asked to take pictures with bassist Nick O’Malley and guitarist Jamie Cook, as well as touring band member Tom Rowley, at the pub.

One person wrote: “You’re not telling me Arctic Monkeys are having a booze in the Moon Under The Water on Deansgate hahahaha.” A second typed: “Imagine bumping into some of the monkeys in a Wetherspoons hahaha.”

Someone else pointed out: “Biggest band in the country and they’re drinking carling in spoons.” Some fans also made light of the band, comparing them to the iconic ‘four lads in jeans’ meme.

And, that’s not the only weird celebrity sighting around Manchester this week.

P!NK was spotted swinging around at Total Ninja indoor park in Trafford Park for her daughter Willow’s 12th birthday party.

The American singer-songwriter is set to perform two huge shows at the University of Bolton stadium.

And Chris Martin from Coldplay was spotted catching a train from Manchester to Cardiff after wowing crowds at epic sold-out shows at the Etihad Stadium.

Members of the Arctic Monkeys were pictured during the gloriously sunny weekend in Manchester, where they’d performed two gigs in Old Trafford.

The Sheffield band will perform later this week for more packed-out crowds in their hometown, at Hillsborough Park.

Apple reveals it will finally stop iPhones autocorrecting f**k to ‘duck’

About ducking time!

Apple has revealed its iPhones will finally stop autocorrecting expletives such as f**k to ‘duck’.

For those who use iPhone, you’ve probably experienced wanting to type a swear word in a message only to find that as you go to send it, it quickly gets changed to something else that’s well, not quite so sweary.

You’re trying to vent your frustrations in a text, but when your phone autocorrects f**k to ‘duck’ or s***t to ‘shut’, it just doesn’t quite have the same effect. Plus, it’s annoying having to keep changing it back to the word you really want to say.

After disgruntled iPhone users have been banging on about it, the Apple team have listened and have finally been persuaded to make some changes to the technology that autocorrects.

During the Worldwide Developers Conference 2023 — a big company showcase on exciting things happening in the Apple tech world — Apple’s software chief, Craig Federighi, said they will ensure its users don’t get angrier because of autocorrect.

Craig said: “In those moments where you just want to type a ducking word, well, the keyboard will learn it, too.” 

According to CNET, the iPhone’s keyboard on iOS 17 uses a transformer model, which OpenAI (the company behind ChatGPT) uses in their own language models, to learn from what you type on your keyboard to better predict what you might say next, whether it’s a name, phrase or even the odd swear word.

If you’re not happy with a correction, you can tap the underlined word to see what you originally typed and quickly go back to it.

This new-improved feature is expected to be available for beta testing in July before being released to the general public in September.

The upcoming update will no doubt make plenty of people happy to finally have a device that understands them. However, this wasn’t the only big news revealed at the Apple event.

Guests were also shown Apple’s new VR/AR headset.

The new Apple Vision Pro headset — which could easily be mistaken for a pair of expensive looking snorkelling goggles — has a full 3D interface and can be controlled with your hands, eyes and voice.

When you put the headset on, you will see all the apps placed in and around your surroundings.

As if taken straight out of a sci-fi movie, It will feel like having a surrounding floating iPad/MacBook interface where you can switch between apps and tabs, play music and watch films. CEO Tim Cook said: “It’s the first Apple product you look through, and not at.”

You can also switch between augmented and full virtual reality by using a dial. The device uses passthrough video that lets you see the real world in full, while also having the ability to project 3D objects into real space.
