Pop-up sign on the computer screen repeating frequently lately, telling you to switch to Chromium as your default browser etc etc. In the text it says to click OK to accept(large OK @ bottom right) or 'click above to exit' in very small text. There is no icon to click, you must put the arrow OVER THE 'Click here to exit' in tiny text above which most people wouldn't do or notice, so falling into the trap. Ba###rds! Grr! F-off Chromium! (Eh, eh, calm down, calm down - Ed.)

People wasting my time with their thoughtlessness. It's like having tiny increments of my life stripped from me , bit by tiny bit. Things like:

*People just stopping in exit doorways, so people behind them can't get out
*People not indicating when driving their car. So I have to wait to find out what the fck they are going to do
* Being put 'on hold' on the telephone
*Unsolicited phone calls and people knocking on the door - if I want you, i'll call you.
* Project meetings which overrun because people use it to raise their own personal issues. - Make a separate appointment with the Boss and don't waste my time hearing you whine.

Bloody Poles.

When I moved here there were a couple opposite me. Now the number has quadrupled. I wish they could all be put underground.







The first 2 were for electricity and telephone, but now all the cable providers have their own one. Bloody annoying.

Being tooted and given the hand gestures for doing the full speed limit in a section with cameras and a reputation for tickets. Could understand it a little if I was crawling but I wasn't.

Also some nutter was doing a least 80mph in a 40 zone on the same trip and nearly cleared up the car in front as it overtook and changed lane at the same time.

What is wrong with these people.

I work with one of those, loves the sound of his own voice and seems to want others to go into great detail about the work that they are doing even though it's nothing to do with him making meetings last 20-30 minutes longer than they should.

I think he thinks he is impressing management.

Last week he was supposed to be on annual leave but came into work on Thursday and Friday because he was bored at home.

My heart sinks when I see him around the office.

The BBC in general's and 5Live in particular's sudden obsession about where Andy Murray is in the world rankings this week. If he'd won a grand slam tournament, fair enough, but for the past fortnight it's been incessant bulletins about how "it's match point to set up a quarter-final that puts him one match away from staying at number one" in some obscure tournament that I've never heard of before.

Bagpipes are a particular irritant for some reason. I think I always associate the sound of them with nationalism and anti englishness. Probably wrongly but there it is. Trainee bagpipe players particularly get on my wick, especially when I'm trying to have a lie in. Dunno about you :)

Remembrance day is allowed, thats a bit different. Its the screetch from down the street that is slightly different. Especially in the bloody morning.

I think Elgin has a point about bagpipes. The walk from the centre of Edinburgh to Murrayfield when England when the Calcutta cup is played up there is full of people (mainly kids) making godawful noises on those things and demanding money for it.

elgin eagle 21-11-2016 01:32 PM

It's not just the calcutta cup. It's every bloody day if you are in there with a train all the time. At least in Glasgow they just glass you if you're English.

Badly designed shit that is absolutely useless at its intended purpose... I've been trying to figure out how to fit downlights without the retaining springs either taking chunks out of the new plasterboard ceiling or taking chunks out of my fingers. It can't be done. They're the DIY equivalent of tetrapaks - they don't ******* work. On the plus side my swearing has hit new heights.

Murray may well be Britain's greatest sportsman but he is one scruffy f*cker. With all the money he has you'd think he could afford a decent barber and wear decent clobber on the court instead of an overgrown pube barnet and wearing ill fitting cast off shit from a charity shop.

Leaks when it's absolutely p****** it down like it is now. Bum - we seem to have sprung 2 leaks that we thought were fixed but it now seems were just playing hard to get. The real problem is that with weather like this you can't get a roofer for love nor money and by the time they do come, it's dry and not a problem and we pay for them to fix a wild guess at what the issue was. Doh!

Giant SUVs and tinted windows, mainly prevelant on the morning and afternoon school runs as far away from anywhere necessitating their real use.

What it means that when you get to a junction wanting to turn left and you have one of these behemoths next to you going right, you cant see anything and are forced to sit and wait for them to cross traffic as you cant see any of the other road users coming down the road and edging out isnt safe as you need to go past 5m worth of engine block onto the road to see anything.

Bloody Cockney wankers who ask for directions,one of such tossers accosted me in town,his car plastered with Chelsea stickers,his opening greeting was "Oy mate,how do i get to dublin from here,i ignored him at first,but he persisted,this time slightly more politely,I advised against using the motor way,instead,i drew him a fairly detailed map,"a short cut"as i called it,i included a particular vital left turn,which will have taken him into a 2500 acre pine forest,nowhere near dublin,if he finds his way out,i hope he is more polite to the next person he asks for directions.If he doesnt,he will probably get sent on another wild goose chase.Buy a fecking sat nav,or learn some manners,wanker***** you Chelsea.

Things that annoy you
 
I brought a coffee from Local coffee outlet. As the lady made my coffee she handed me my change and receipt. I threw away receipt in communal shop bin, and put 5 in wallet and coins in pocket. I've got outside and realised I've got the receipt in with my notes (in my wallet) which means I've thrown the 5 in the bin... is it worth bin raiding in a busy coffee shop for my fiver?

This happened because I was on the phone as I did the coffee transaction. It's only a fiver... but I'm so ****in pissed off with myself.

The BBC website

Previously a cornerstone of news and sport, its now been reduced to an almost tabloid magazine level of inanity, concentrating its main headlines on Strictly and the Bake Off, which are now of more importance than any actual news. It also considers constant stories of women being 'outraged' at being asked to leave Nandos cause they are breastfeeding of national importance and has further stooped to the level of including Facebook style ' 8 Celebrities who have never flown on a plane' type lists..........

Embarrassing.

It's not much better tbh. Relies too much on short video clips to tell a news item rather than a detailed report. Videos which either "are not available in your country" or videos that make you sit through a 30-45 sec ad to watch a 10-20sec summary.
Used to be probably the best news site on the web, now it's average to poor at best.

And is a clone of the CNN website in format and content.

Let idiots kill themselves - it will increase the intelligence of the gene pool.

At least it saves us from having to watch a completely shit advert over and over. The sort of bollocks Apprentice candidates come up with.

oh I know, but I used to loathe going away for any period of time because I would be stuck with the international version. Now I look forward to the international version.

It also considers constant stories of women being 'outraged' at being asked to leave Nandos cause they are breastfeeding of national importance and has further stooped to the level of including Facebook style ' 8 Celebrities who have never flown on a plane' type lists..........

Embarrassing.

The BBC would have surficed

The whole organisation is a disgrace

Not at all.

There is a whole world of things to dislike about them, I agree, but they are one of the best at producing documentaries, such as the current Planet Earth II.

Both of these may well have been done before but I've had a bad day so striking while the iron is hot...

1. People who are incapable of walking in a reasonably straight line and inadvertently cut you up on the diagonal when you try to overtake them, then look annoyed at you for encroaching into their space.

2. People who shove stinking fat burgers into their gobs whilst sat next to you on the train - yes you, coach B seat 66 on the 16.33 from Kings Cross to Leeds.

On a plane being asked to swap your aisle seat with someone in a middle seat so they can sit next to colleague, lover whatever. Not once has it ever happened the other way round.

I find a simple "Nah" delivered with a downturned mouth works a treat on these occasions.

Michael McIntyre, unfunny twat.

Getting the glass screen on the wife's phone replaced last week, only for it to crack again today. Bastard.

On one occasion there was a woman looking at her boarding pass, then at the seat next to me, then at me, promptly asked the air hostess if she could find another seat!

Thought so, they're really cracking down on that now!
Thing to do is wait till they are locked in next to the window and them give it to em, especially if it's a long flight and they fall asleep. Or so I've heard!

Taking an old working fridge to the dump for my boy, and then replacing it with a better fridge from the garage, getting it up to his flat only for the fecker to bang and stop working.

I'm sure you can collect one the next time you watch Palace. :)
