Lots Of People Are Annoyed After Missing Out On Glastonbury Tickets
On top of everyone being a bit on edge today after staying up until the wee small hours this morning watching two blokes fight, then fighting over a fight that itself was about a different fight, now there are people getting grouchy about not getting tickets to Glastonbury.
So much for a lazy, relaxing Sunday, eh?
Well, OK, the crossover between people who wanted Glasto tickets and those who stayed up to watch Conor McGregor fight Khabib Nurmagomedov might not necessarily be that large, but still, a lot of people are annoyed.
Obviously, quite a few people did get Glastonbury tickets. Hundreds of thousands of them, but that is to be expected after the festival took a year off to allow the site of the festival to recover - people were bound to be missing it, so the rush for tickets can't have come as a surprise.
You had to be up pretty early to get one. After the initial release of tickets that included coach travel sold out in half an hour on Thursday, the latest release sold out not long after that.
Don't worry if you missed out though, all hope is not yet lost. There will be other tickets released on resale in April.
Still annoyed? Well you could always just vent your spleen on social media.
Oh, you did?
Following the dramatically large uptake in tickets, Glastonbury's organiser Emily Eavis tweeted: "Tickets have now sold out!

"We are blown away by the huge demand, looks like record numbers tried.
"Thank you for your patience and incredible support and for those of you who missed out, there will be a ticket resale in April."
Glastonbury is one of the largest 'green field music and performing arts' festivals in the world. Around 200,000 people will descend on Worthy Farm, Somerset, next June for it. Each of them will have paid around £248 or more for the privilege.
For that kind of dosh, they are going to expect some huge names to perform for them. They are unlikely to be left disappointed given some of the names that are flying about.
They don't come too much bigger than Sir Paul McCartney, for example.
Despite nothing having been announced yet, Emily Eavis told Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 recently: "We always want him [McCartney] - he's top of our list. We'll have to see."
Alongside Sir Paul, there are also strong rumours about Bruce Springsteen, Arctic Monkeys and Madonna.
One thing we do know is that the traditional Sunday afternoon 'legend' set is going to be a woman. In the same interview with Jo Whiley, Eavis confirmed that a woman who 'is not British' will be playing.
