I take it that you drive through South Norwood fairly regularly. Portland Road in particular is like a permanent hazard awareness exam. It generally seems to be multi-generational death wish in my experience though.

Fit bits (should have called them fat bits). It's no good looking all smug because you've done 10,000 steps if you just stuffed a pack of Jaffa cakes and a doughnut.

Saw this young lad do this in Thornton Heath a while back with the usual swagger and arrogance that accompanies such an action. The only problem was this kid wasn't banking on an irate biker revving up and going straight for him. The kids cool swagger suddenly turned into a Python-seque silly walk as he stumbled out of the way to the safety of the pavement. His face was a picture as it swung from 'too cool for school' to pathetic fear. I think everyone on that road that witnessed it just burst out laughing. Should become a national sport.

I'm 57, it's pissing down and I'm trying to cross the road to the local. You're warm, dry and listening to your favourite tunes and you can't find the kindness in your heart to just break a bit, slow down whilst sitting in your artificially maintained cocoon of personal bliss whilst you let me across the road?

I admit that, when I'm finally back off home, you may well then need your best ever evasive skills.

I know I do.

Me. I'm really annoyed with me as I cannot think of a song which involves socks. There is a bit of a nerd at work, fresh out of university, who got a bit tipsy one night and told one of the others that he has a thing about having sex with women when they keep their socks on. He then asks them to keep them as a souvenir and wears them himself.

I am by far the oldest at the place I work and he does seem to have a bit of an attitude with anyone who doesn't have a degree. So I wanted to go around the office singing a song about socks. I came up with Do you think I'm Socksy but I'd love to find a singable song about socks.

What kind of numpty that is new to a job tells people stuff like that? Should be enough ammunition there to ridicule him for the duration of his career there. Introduce him to women and tell them of his "interest"

EDIT and regular pairs of rancid socks left on his desk would be effective

When you have two work passwords for different systems that you finally get lined up, then the next day you have to change one of them. Normally on a Friday so by the time it comes to Monday you've forgotten which one is which and after 3 attempts you have to call IT ànd look like an idiot.

Similar to that but those that put the word 'goals' after everything usually in a hashtag on social media alongside a photo they have posted... 'squad goals', 'relationship goals', 'body goals', etc.

It's his first job and I think he thought he was still at University, daft tw*t that he is.

I like the idea of well positioned rancid socks. There is a radiator by his desk, pity it's not winter or one could go down the back of there.

Dress for the beach when the mercury hits 72° and moan like mad when anyone has the temerity to turn on the air conditioning because it is too cold on their shoulders.

There's an advert with a goofy blonde girl saying 'they say that Millenial Generation will have more than five jobs in their lifetime, I think that's really exciting'.

She then goes onto tell us she doesn't have a proper job at all but is a vlogger and a podcaster and travel writer, grinning inanely and pulling faces as she merrily boasts about her wonderful little life.

Well bully for you.

Why do you want a receipt. It actually irritates me on Lloyd's ATMs that I have to view my balance on the screen or get a paper receipt. I'm not interested just give me my f*cking beer vouchers.

Genuinely had this exchange last night at Morrisons.

"Good evening, do you need any help with your packing?"
"No thanks, I'm fine"

"Do you need any more bags?"
"No thanks, I think I have enough"

"Are you doing anything exciting tonight?"
"Well clearly not, because it's half past eight on a Saturday night and I'm in Morrisons doing a massive grocery shop. Just get a ******* move on with the frozen food!!!"*

Radio travel news reporters overplaying their role - "And that's your Travel News and I'm Norma Snockers." I don't need to know you're Norma Snockers, wannabe radio presenter. I just want to hear about the closed off back passage in Cockermouth.

Add to that barbers, hairdressers who feel they have to make small talk. They don't care what you are doing at the weekend, where you are going on holiday or how business is. Just shut up and cut my barnet.

Live traffic reports from the helicopter. If I am at home and there is a pile up on the Harbour Bridge ,I could not care less. If I am in a car held up by the pile up I feking know anyway. If I am in my car on way to said by up can do **** all as I don't have a telly in my car.

Nail on the head.

Not the helicopter ones, but I've lost track of the times I stuck going nowhere and listen to the reports and there is no mention of anything where I am... then on another day, I'm zipping along and they say there is something going on right where I'm at - cleared up 30 minutes ago.

It's all akin to the weatherman sticking his read out the window and telling us it's raining :wallbash:

'Trending' and 'On Trend'

Dislike it absolutely, but especially when heard being used by anyone over the age of 40

They are just politely inquiring whether you want anything for said weekend :)

I gave up going to barbers for that reason and have had my ears lowered instead.

Genuinely had this exchange last night at Morrisons.

"Good evening, do you need any help with your packing?"
"No thanks, I'm fine"

"Do you need any more bags?"
"No thanks, I think I have enough"

"Are you doing anything exciting tonight?"
"Well clearly not, because it's half past eight on a Saturday night and I'm in Morrisons doing a massive grocery shop. Just get a ******* move on with the frozen food!!!"*

I guess they are just trying to pass the time as it must be an incredibly boring job. Occasionally they probably find someone with a personality who is happy to interact. :D

People who can't draw the line between work and social... and on this subject, I've just been asked to buy a table tennis table for the office. And given the only spare real estate in our place is right outside my office, so I said no. The person who asked me reminded me she was the MD... :D

Looks like we're having a table tennis table at work and I'll WFH a lot more often :D

The medical profession and their obsession with extending life to itsee Nth degree.

Just saw my GP for results of a blood test taken because I have slightly high blood pressure. Apparently if I don't cut down on my cheese intake I may die upto 3 years earlier than my life expectancy which is apparently about 88. I bloody love cheese do will not cut down on it and if that means I have 3 years less when I'm at an age where I'm pissing myself and don't know who my daughter is then so be it.

My wife's aunt is a perfect example of the current stupidity of the medical profession. She's in her late 80's crippled with arthritis and has dementia. They've just discovered she has is also riddled with cancer. They are proposing 6 months of chemo and radiation therapy to add another year to her life. She can barely move and can't remember who her kids are why would you want to extend her life at all?

Very interesting post. It's the old "live for today" dilemma.

Gotta agree with all that!

BBC News. The ridiculous and ott reaction to almost every story, and the saturation coverage of events. Newreaders asking questions to witnesses like " Give us a sense of the feeling in the area at the moment". This morning after the Mosque attack, the newsreader asked a member of the public who saw it all " during the attack how did the public alert the police?". I thought, hmmm, mobile phone perhaps?
After the Manchester attacks Louise Munchkin (sic) told us they (the BBC) would be getting an expert in to the studio to help us explain the events to our kids.
How the fk is that news? And it really annoys me.

Totally ridiculous that your GP can tell you will lose 3 yrs of your life from eating cheese. If only diet and it's effects on the body was that simple...
I would have challenged him on his "findings" !!
