If you're travelling home on the Luas this afternoon, you may be in for some delays.
The transport company has confirmed that some stops on the green line are out of use due to an ill passenger.
Stops between Milltown and Stephen's Green have been disrupted and Luas are urging passengers to be aware that they could face disruptions for up to 30 minutes.
However, Dublin Bus is issuing any valid Luas tickets during the delay.
Hundreds of New Zealand passengers flying with Air NZ have been forced to spend three extra days in Hawaii, after their plane was delayed due to ‘a faulty indication system’, and they’ve been awarded compensation for their hardship.
The airline issued an apology: “Due to the lengthy nature of this disruption, the difficulty we’ve experienced in adequately communicating with customers and the fact we have repeatedly let them down, we have made the decision that in addition to our unreserved apology we will also be compensating each customer $1000 in either cash or Airpoints Dollars.”
We are SO jealous. Not only did they get to go to Hawaii in the first place, but they got an extended stay for free.
The only way this would happen to us, is if we had decided to holiday somewhere really awful. And it would probably end up costing us money too. SO unfair!
If you’re constantly finding yourself behind on a deadline and late for mates – you’re probably a procrastinator.
And you’re not alone!
A recent study has shown that the percentage of chronic procrastinators has grown from about 5 per cent in the 1970’s to around 20 per cent today.
So what’s going on?
Part of the reason has to do with technology. There’s so much to do online, that putting off until tomorrow (and the day after) what we could do today is almost natural. Now play that hilarious ‘sneezing panda’ viral again!
A recent study showed that 60 per cent of respondents who checked an email or a social media ping in the middle of work – actually forgot what they were thinking about.
Email and social media took away an hour of productivity for about 36 per cent of survey takers, and 16 per cent lost more than an hour.
But there may be more to it than that. A new study on twins published in Psychological Science has found there may be a genetic link!
The siblings in the study tended to have similar levels of procrastination.
The study also claimed that people who are impulsive tend to also be procrastinators, and vice-versa.
We don’t think your boss is going to swallow any of these excuse though, so log off Facebook and get back to work!
