Why is it that even 6 months after a bloke gets encouraged to leave by management and does (less paperwork then sacking apparently) i still on occasion have to repair relationships with clients after his blunders. Its even worse when its a long term client of mine who i havent seen in a while who is unhappy yet previously they were at the level with me where id go for a beer with them.

Why is it that IRAQ and IRAN are now pronounced EYE-RACK and EYE-RAN? Many decades ago when I was a child they were pronounced E-RAH-K and E-RAH-N.

Why is it that the top soccer league in Australia is called the A-league when it contains a team from New Zealand?

Why is it that the “card only” registers at the self service exit at Coles still require you to select “card” as your payment method?

Why is it that Americans use the MM/DD/YYYY date format but refer to their Independence Day as the Fourth of July?

Why is it that we describe pain as 'stabbing' or 'burning' yet most of us have never been stabbed or burnt therefore we don't know what theses things feel like.

I’ve drilled a 1/8” hole in my finger...

Twice!

So I probably have some reference data for a stabbing pain.

Had multiple major cuts and 1 digit reattached and been stabbed in the chest before. I think the better term is a sharp pain. Proper injuries dont hurt straight up. The adrenaline your body pumps at the time sorts that. When that adreniline wears off, yeah, then it hurts. So if its major, it takes a few minutes to realy hurt. Sharp pains to me are like the times a few years back my chest would hurt bad and my heart would beat really fast then stop for 20 seconds, then go slow for a minute then get back up to speed. Never got that looked at, probably should have, but it hasnt happened in years.

Wait a second. You can dual purpose that. Swap the nozzel over, refill the more convenient small one without losing a drop, then cap the big unit and re nozzel the small one. Thats cheapskate as ****, but sounds like a good plan, ill probably stick to just buying regular size sauce bottles. My bogan tip is wrap wet paper towel around a warm beer and with the increased surface area, 15 minutes in the freezer is all it takes to cool that sweet sweet booze down to a cold beer.
