I was going to say red nose day on TV but I haven't watched any of it so will have to say 'the last leg' instead, what a load of painfully cringeworthy shit and tonight as if that Australian bloke wasn't bad enough, you've got special guests Sandey Toksvik and James Blunt!

Sandy Toksvik, Uggghh cannot stand her. Nails down a blackboard is preferable to listen to, than her droning voice.

Never mind that. I had to get the train back from Haywards Heath today, but as you've just alluded to, there were no trains. No big deal; the information display showed that the bus replacement would be along in eight minutes. I popped over to the garage for a drink and had a quick cigarette, and it was there. But my ******* God. The bloke driving the coach was an absolute maniac. He was driving through the dodgiest of high weald, up-and-down, bendy roads like he was in control of a motorbike! I got off at Three Bridges a shivering wreck. The disappointing thing was that no-one else seemed that bothered.

Ok fair enough, seemed a bit of a twat to me but I don't really have anything against him my point was more how unfunny 'the last leg' is especially that Aussie bloke. Painfully unfunny.

Old people.
Not the benign, genial and erudite ones - but the ones in that space between lucid mobility, and, doddery befuddlement.

Rationale : three demonstrations in ten minutes today (whilst having the misfortune to be at at the shops) of a total lack of situational awareness and manners. 1) I pause to allow a chap in a wheelchair through the door first - then old bloke barges in to that space past me and blocking me off and tuts loudly 2) lady of certain vintage just pushes past me in the queue at Waitrose, feigns an apology and just carries on regardless, 3) whilst travelling around the roundabout an ageing man in a recently polished 10 year old Focus fails to see me on his approach to the junction - applies full anchors at the last moment, after I had started my own evasive action : glowering at me for having the temerity to be on the road.

The Elderly today - not like they used to be, no respect. Shuffling about in fawn clothing...

Lol....and what are they doing shopping on a Saturday anyway, when they have all week to do this? (Joke)

I'm also a supporter of older people taking a driving test beyond a certain age. I can't see the downside, if they pass then carry on driving, if they don't then it's best they either stop or take a course and try again. My own dad, a keen driver, felt he'd lost some upper body strength in his 70s, so wisely changed to a car with assisted steering. But some carry on regardless with inappropriate tanks and struggle with parking etc.

A friend's relative is now such a poor driver that they plan every journey so that it has no right turns in it...I'm not joking.

With a user name like yours, I should imagine that you're not far short of being called elderly yourself.

If that Waitrose was the one in Beckenham, then I hear you. It seems to be the spiritual home of those sort of old people. I've seen passive agressive trolley rage, tutting and queue jumping in there like you wouldn't believe.

We recently had medium sized amount of shopping to do and rather than asking if she could go first a hatchet faced old boot behind us with a couple of items decided to literally hop on the spot tutting loudly and waving her arms about until we offered to let her go first. She pushed past us without even acknowledging our presence let alone saying thank you and off she went, presumably stopping on the way home only to throw a cat into a wheely bin.

Mum and dad both dead two years, but none of us feel the need to post pics up on birthdays and Mother/Fathers Days, saying crap like "Today would have been your birthday..."

It's just "look at me and how sensitive I am, look how I can wallow in my pain" crap.

I made the mistake of going there a couple of days before Christmas, assuming that all the elderley middle class people that make up 95% of its customer base would have been more organised and got their shit sorted earlier.

Big mistake. Jesus H Christ on a mother****ing bicycle, was it a big mistake. Trolley rage, passive aggressive glares and muttering, tactical blocking of aisles, frenzied product snatching, parking punch ups and so much tutting and sighing that you could hook a windmill up to the place and power a small town for a month. Next time I'm going for the tranquility, politeness and levity of south norwood Aldi, those posh old women can do one. Your loss Waitrose.

saxoneagle 27-03-2017 01:33 PM

When a client owes you shit loads, they ask a question such as "can you just send me a copy of X and I'll get your bill paid straight away" and your assistant seemingly can't prioritise. I mean, I'm sure she'll contact me quickly enough on Friday if her salary isn't in her bank...

I've only been there twice although I've lived in the area for 25 years. Absolutely hate the place because of what you say above. We'd never drive there now either. My wife drove there once and made the mistake of stopping to let a sweet old lady come out of her parking space. This woman steamed into our car and then said that my wife drove into her as she was stationary and that it was my wife's fault. As the land is private, the insurance company said it was knock for knock.

This one baffles more than annoys me and it may well be me who's got it wrong. But ever since Prezzo started infesting the High Streets of the land a decade or so back, I have always pronounced it as 'pret-so' just the same as you would pronounce pizza as 'pete-sa'. However, everyone one else I know pronounces it as the anglicised 'prezo' i.e. just the same as it is spelt. Why is that?

I am not being pretentious here, it just seems natural to me that the word is intended to be pronounced in the Italian way, so to speak.

People who comment on stories on the BBC website. You get articles about the complexities of Brexit and then the highest rated comment is someone who just goes "out means out". Everything is the fault of foreigners or Facebook or the BBC itself or how terrible it is that a company or franchise is foreign owned (today it is South West Trains). And the sucking up to Theresa May or any member of the royal family is vomit inducing.

Bravo. Well said. And I always try and add a bit of an eyetalian sprinkle to my pronunciation when ordering in Prezzo & properly give it some flourish with my "arrabbiata" and "pappardelle". The waiters love it.

But when I tried similar in an Indian restaurant it resulted in a massive brawl.

Daughter and her friend came home from school. Her friend was meant to be here for a few hours. After 25 mins friend asks to leave... I drive her home... she's silent... can't get a word out of her. I ask my daughter if they fell out, she says no. She said she was sat in bed chatting to her, while her friend used her hair straighteners... then all of a sudden she announces she has to go home immediately.


I go up stairs, and it seems she put down hair straightener on my daughters new bedroom carpet, and burned it.

No they're actually quite good although the returns policy is a bit fussy. Wouldn't take back my used butt plug when I said it was too small.

People that try to save the life of a bottle of hand wash by diluting it with water.

This means you squeeze the top hoping to get a nice dollop of fresh antibacterial moisturiser and instead get this piss weak squirt of soapy air and phlegm that makes you wish you didn't even bother to wash your hands in the first place.

Why don't people just throw the ******* bottle away and buy a new one?!

Accidentally copying in a client to an email which basically says that the client is a ******* idiot!

Client did something very stupid, which he knew he had ****ed up on. He probably didn't need to see my sarcastic email taking the piss out of him to realise this!

Customer sent me an email which contained a chain of emails to his employee including one in which referred to me as "the stupid printer", even though the reason for the delay was his data not being print-ready and him not checking or replying to emails.

We found it funny that he didn't seem to realise that I'd be able to see all the messages just by scrolling down, but as he has been extra polite to me since maybe he did!

Shitty screen that doesn't register taps when using the keyboard (coupled with autocorrect renders the majority of typing complete garbage) yet when scrolling the page up when reading an article on the web, is so sensitive that the slightest touch to an ad or another link is good enough to activate it.

Agreed. Such a great product but so frustrating! I can spell, I don't need Apple to incorrectly predict what I want to say and then send a message before it is finished...

Women in their 50's and older who refer to their "Girlfriends" and even worse their "boyfriend".

Just makes me cringe every time I hear it.

Left handed people who draw a 'tick' backwards! They don't write letters backwards, so why do it for ticks???

I honestly don't know how people can watch that shit

On a different subject, Center Parcs beer prices. I get the captive audience stuff but fook my old grannies boots....4.35 for a Carling and 5.40 for an Estrella. 5.40 ! Cheaper in bloody Barcelona. At least they decent beer now though. Last time I was here it was Fosters or Kronebourg.

Good job I was in a good mood yesterday evening. Cost me 27 :D

Radio presenters giving a "Shout out" to/for someone.

What the f is a "shout out"? Apart from not-very-shouty way of saying 'hello'.

I must, must get a life.....

Big shout out is even more annoying.

Yup. Ordered a new sofa with guaranteed next day delivery, last week. No sofa.
