It doesn’t matter how many times you look at the Weather Channel or Metcheck or the Met Office website or even the BBC weather – you cannot make the snow and ice melt. Also it should be noted when they all give different forecasts, it is not an option to choose the one you want.
If the M25 is blocked and the tailbacks extend for forty miles, checking the status of it on Keep Moving or the Highways Agency website or even the BBC travel site every two minutes will not make all the traffic magically disappear.
Endlessly checking your emails will not bring an acceptance into your inbox however much you want it to.
Looking at your bank balance three times a day on the internet will not make it get bigger.
Looking at your bum in the mirror three times a day will not make it get smaller.
Standing with the freezer lid up and staring at the contents until your eyeballs freeze will not make a loaf of bread magically appear.
