A sign that you haven't bought the best internet service. - PositronWildhawk

This should be number 1.

It make Me piss Off

4 Just Before a Good Part of a Song

10 Just Before You Finish a List On TheTopTens

This happened to me yesterday. I made the list 'words which sound amusing when said backwards' my connection failed right before I was about to send, so I had to rewrite the whole list again. I went crazy - as only crazy Britgirls do... - Britgirl

I blog more than I make lists, but thankfully, I always do my drafts outside the internet before I post them.

This almost happened when I made this list. It's probably just my mind tormenting me. - PositronWildhawk
