Dear woman at work who sits behind me,

Thanks but I don't need to hear you rehashing the details of the German wings flight, now with bonus discussion of how terrified the passengers must have felt and dramatic enactment of the 'pilot banging on the door' bit again. For the 5th time. I already get antsy about how much Doug flies, and how much of it is done on budget airlines with less than sterling safety records. This isn't helping.

No love.

If facts and figures help to clam your nerves about stuff (I know that they do mine) then this table is pretty good.

(NB. For the love of all that's good in this world don't read anything else on the page!)

Don't blame you on that one - plane crashes can be particularly triggering for me and I hate being forced to ask people to stop talking about them. Thankfully not at work this week.
