Flip-flops, shorts and t-shirt is the national dress of Kent. Pub gardens are full of them in summertime.

Nothing wrong with saying ‘can I have’. It’s ‘can I get’ that does my swede in

mte103 27-08-2018 10:52 AM

No, JJ is right. You probably 'can' have it for you really wanted, but you're asking for permission/asking for someone to get it for you, so may is the more correct word to use.

My posh hotel room. The toilet is in the bedroom behind a glass western bar style swing door. Watching my wife have a 5hit is now possible and vice versa but doesnt really do anything for me.

They're Englishisms.


Americans tend to demand rather than ask, which is probably why they think we're a little bit quaint.

Nikwax re waterproofing wash in stuff .. first take ever so slightly porous Tucano Jacket and wash in their special 'Technical wash', then wash in the waterproofer - which looks and smells suspiciously like watered down PVA. Dry and wear on bike in the rain (this morning) ... Jacket is now less waterproof than a teabag.

When people telephone you and they are eating at the same time.

Actors talking whilst they 'eat', I often mute it and stick subtitles on until they have finished.

If you have seen the latest episode of BCS, watch Jimmy make a bowlful of cereal take about 5 mins to finish.

I have seen the episode of Room 101 where 'actors delvering lines' suceeds in being sent down. It should be on Room 101 every bloody week!

Yes mate, at about 1000hrs and I've been here since. He looked like he was going to protest but I think it dawned on him how selfish he had been, so he picked up his pile of towels and wandered off.
From that day onwards I would sometimes head over to the pool at around 8 and shift all the towels that had been 'reserved' before heading over to breakfast. It created numerous arguments around the place but amused me no end.

Is this a holiday? Sounds like work to me. Every day I get tp the office and have exactly the same kind of s*** about finding a desk with a phone and a computer that are both prepared to acknowledge my existence at the same time.

Did you see the interview with the daughter, who parents died whilst on holiday in unusual circumstances? "Dad went down the pool each day first thing to put the towels on the recliners" :( If I ran a hotel I would have a Selhurst Celtic permanently on duty.

Supermarket staff

(I won't bore you with specifics)
The ones who flit around doing nothing, with those headsets on, whilst there are large queues at the checkouts. Get behind the till you @r5ehole, and don't tell me to go to 'self-checkout', because there's a massive queue for that too.
And others who have a distorted sense of authority (lack of self-worth), who completely neglect the needs of the customer. And those who are just fecking rude (ignorant)

However, this is mitigated by the large amount of grief I throw back at them.
Remember me ? I'm the customer (Falling Down is my favourite film)
