There was a lady who was having a routine op, didn't speak English but every time her family visited, they would start writing in a note book... turns out they were advised by a family member to keep notes so they could sue if they felt the care was insufficient (this is not a one off)... they have tried to sue once before. The would complain her water wasn't refreshed, and she was in danger of becoming dehydrated... she had 3 healthy family members who could have filled up her water at any time, but they all sat there while they summoned a nurse over to refresh her water from a water cooler less than 12ft from her bed!
The poor nurses that work on the dementia ward are assaulted almost daily.

Thanks for the nice comment, BTW, mushroom. Would have thanked you by rep but Tapatalk doesn't allow it :D

In Part 1 (which is very good, but not excellent) Bill is this mysterious, samurai sword wielding lord of the underworld wreaking revenge and havoc in equal measures to whomever and whenever he wanted.

Part 2 - he's an old wanker with a stupid flute that got shafted by a record shop manager.

That letter is somewhere else on this forum with the photo of the bloke, he really was massive he should've gone by cargo plane as I showed in a reply, will try to find it.

This reminds me of a Karl Pilkington story when he remarked that a big fat kid on a plane was playing a computer game which he found out was darts. He said he was so fat and lazy he couldn't even be bothered to play a more energetic game.

Yes but lollipops aren't going to help a 6 month or year old poor baby. Especially jamming them in their ears.

You can thank nut allergic people for no peanuts now. Probably.

Listening to music now and going "I now where they stole that sample from" as when around the late 90's early 00's I used to hang out and help a guy in a 2nd hand record shop, he knew his rare groove, electro house, motown etc and he also used to buy and sell uk garage and drum and bass/jungle which I was into and he would say the same to me and if he had the original (as this was before whosampled.com) would play that and I found it interesting, now I just think wow I'm getting old are they really remixing nightcrawlers push the feeling with vocals from r kellys bump n grind.

To annoy me even more, some Clown twat behind me was going to to his missus (I assume) about how 'cringe' our fans are. I was going to remind him how irrelevant Charlton are but he got off. Who the **** are Charlton anyway?

Christmas jumpers. Seriously, when did this become a 'thing'?

"Oooo look at how whacky and ironic I'm being wearing a shit jumper. Honestly, you best watch out for me, anything could happen! LOL! Haha!"

Haha what a great time we're all having, aren't we just the guys ey?!"

An extension of the 'Move down please' shouts on busy trains already alluded to. When said self rightious person will take it upon themselves to walk down the side of the train in an attempt to motivate the already crushed standing passengers to move further down the train, complete with a medley of hand and arm gestures.

Always good to hear with the desperate plea of 'some of us have got to get to work.' As if everyone else on the train are already on their 3rd can on White Ace at 8:24am on the way to Wetherspoons via the job centre

When someone emails you at work and copies your boss in like some kind of threat.

When at an away game which is no where near sold out (universally agreed that stand where you want applies in such situations) and you get the awkward and inflexible person who will hover around the seat for a while, tilt their body to the side to check for the 14th time that they are indeed at their correct seat. Turn around and take a few steps back, just to be completely sure they are in the right row. Study the ticket once again to make sure there are no mistakes in their calculations before letting you know you are in their seat.

Jack Whitehall, Olly Murrs, James Corden.

Snide office football 'banter.' 'Do you think Palace will stay up this season?' 'What do you think of Warnock?-seems to be doing well' **** off

The word banter.

Millwall and West Ham fans etc laughing at us singing we love you, then no doubt lapping up in it when the England band start to play it.

Click bait or whatever it is. "Blah blah blah and you'll never guess what happened" in a vain attempt to make you click to the story (connecting adverts).

What's really sad about this is they grow up expecting to be coached in that manner. Two of my players actually told me last week they don't listen to me simply because I don't rant and rave and litter every sentence with the 'c' word.

So I've handed over the duties to someone who will. :(

In one of my son's school teams I used to dread it when a certain boy played up front. He was tall with some skill, but chunky and unfit.

As soon as our team had the ball, his loud dad would be telling our player to hit the long ball forward to his kid. It's v hard for a youngster to try to play it through midfield etc, when an adult is shouting at him from a few feet away.

On the bright side, the boy could only play in bursts so would be subbed off quite regularly (to the disbelief of the dad who couldn't see the obvious reason why). After a year of this, I learned to stand further apart from him on the touchline so he couldn't draw me into awkward conversations along the lines of....eg 'why's my son subbed off again', answer 'cos he can't run mate, open your blooming eyes and look!'.

To borrow a complaint from a site I go on, people who say these mispronunciations and generally ignorant things. Rep to anyone who finds the site:

vimpto
arks
expresso
somethink
intensive purposes
pacific (specific)
could care less
could of
febry
probly
i writ something
on accident (we're not ******* Septics...)
imput
duck tape
govurmunt
racialist (I actually heard someone I know non-ironically say this just before they were going to moan about the muzzies)
simples
litrully
on route
bantz
doggy dog world
pre-Madonnas
going for a cheeky ______ (e.g. cheeky fag, cheeky Nando's - if you say this you are a ****, irony present or otherwise)
our _____ (e.g. our lads, our Steve - basically that stupid Northern thing)
on-line
x-box (stop putting ******* dashes everywhere in product names)
overuse of literally
using 'like' as a filler word (**** off scousers & Geordies)

People who let their dog jump all over you when you go to their house

People who read out aloud from the paper and over emphasise key words to embellish the point of the story .

Normally stories about immigrants or the M.P's salaries .....

Stupid mocking smiley.

What about if you're a teacher of doctors?

A doctorate represents a person being a good student, not a good teacher.

Or surely a good doctor which I thought was your point?

The doctorate is most likely in what they are teaching - like linguistics etc.

The idea is they are probably teaching while studying part-time in a speciality related to their field. Then they will be deemed qualified to lead a team of teachers, prepare curriculums, run seminars, and publish academic papers; among other things.

They will earn more into the bargain.

Whether right or wrong, some universities will only employ Masters or Doctors. If I put 10 years into my study and worked for a good part of it, I would fancy the moniker Dr as well.

Rain on a cold day. It's already cold, then you are soaked and soggy with ice-cold socks, then you go back outside and then freeze a second time. Choose cold or rain, not both.

Many Spanish ask for ice in their coffee because they haven't got 3 hours to wait for the scolding hot drink to cool down quickly enough which is often served in a glass with no handles, therefore impossible to pick up in the first place. They can be right loonies at times I tell you.

Really...people do that?!

I agree, should only do this on key bits of correspondence where it might be of some particular relevance/importance. Although other than CVs, I'm struggling to think of more than a handful of times I recorded my degree on 20 years of work correspondence.

It's an old cliche but I find Macs one of the worst for this.

You have a scolding hot drink on the table near your child and have to leave the lid off if you want it to reach a drinkable temperature before midnight. I place it as safe as poss, but it'd be much better if it wasn't a volcanic temp to begin with.
