You are a bit of a hazard if you drive straight across a roundabout instead of going around it ;) I'm guessing its a Thai thing? Never witnessed such foolery in the UK!

This is how a Thai driving test goes.


1. Drive the car in a circle in the test centre car park and park the car. That's the practical.

2. Colour blindness and reaction test. As 90%+ of Thai males are permently drunk the reaction test is a bit pointless.

That used to be it until about 5 years ago.

Now the have a written multiple choice test that they can just keep going back in and doing until they guess enough right (about 4 times a day).

And recently they introduced a video showing rules of the road etc. I had to watch this in Thai when renewing my Thai licience. In a room of maybe 100 people watching a small TV, 40% were asleep and most of the rest were playing with their phones.

As you may have guessed they never learn how to use roundabouts or anything for that matter and mostly aren't sober.

Silly, whinging, noisy bint at the epassport booths in Gatwick yesterday "what a palaver that was, etc...."

I'd not used them before but you snake your way through the barriers, walk up to an empty lane, place your passport on the glass and hold, 10 seconds later all sorted.

The very opposite of 'a palaver'.

I have tried to use them everytime I have flown into Gatwick since I got my E Passport....they have never worked. So after trying the same machine twice, then being told to use a different machine...twice.... and then having a member of staff look at my passport, try to put it back in again to no avail....twice... and then being sent to the normal passport control i would say "a palaver" is a ******* understatement.

Same here. They are probably great if you have a lucky passport that the machine recognises.

richdeniro 22-08-2017 01:12 PM

People who can't wait for 30 seconds to overtake a stopped bus and decide to overtake by driving into the oncoming traffic which has right of way.

Also people who don't know how wide their car actually is and come to a complete stop where the road narrows due to parked cars but in actual fact the gap is still wide enough that two tanks could easily pass each other.

:confused: Tickets. Tickets for almost any event particularly gigs. Tickets go on sale to general public on a certain date, yet before and after supposedly being sold out that date the Internet is awash with them at hugely inflated prices. Something must be done. I know there are far more critical issues to be concerned about . . . But. If everyone were to boycott thee sites (Ticketmaster etc) things may improve. Confused because if I were to stand outside Wembley touting tickets I could be arrested, yet these agencies are doing the same thing. I may be naive but it's just another way we are being shafted.

You can add to that 'we are where we are'

I have a real big beef with the prices charges for fuel at motorway service stations compared to urban stations, currently around 20p per litre more expensive. There seems to be no justification for it, other than to rip off the captive audience of motorway travellers finding themselves low on fuel.

Not only petrol too. Everything else inside is at least 25% more expensive as well. It's like Cyprus without the sun in there. I always turn off the motorway and spend an extra fiver in petrol and half an hour looking for the supermarket version.

Kronenburg 1664 used to be palatable until that C-unit became the face of their advertising. I'd rather he was the face on the toe end of my boot. Don't drink the stuff now, never will.

I will throw in a couple having just returned from hols in Cornwall.

The first is the trend for chefs using their own names in the names of their restaurants. For the Gordon Ramsays of this world you can probably understand it seeing as their name is a key component of their overall 'brand'. But when it's some bloke you've never heard of it seems a pretention too far - 'Chris Atkins At Number 6', 'Bill Johnson Riverside' and such like.

The second is the proliferation of wetsuit wearers in the sea these days - when did that become de rigeur? I took the kids into the sea at Polzeath for some body boarding, they had wetsuits on which I suppose is fair enough for kids as it supposedly keeps the cold at bay a bit. As usual I had nothing but trunks on and after the initial acclimatisation I was absolutely fine for the 45 minutes or so we were splashing around in the waves. But I look around me at one point and I am the only **** out of what must have been 300 or so people in there who didn't have a wetsuit on - every man jack of them regardless of age, sex, religious persuasion, whatever had one of the bloody things on. It made me feel like I was the weirdo. I am not some sort of pseudo hard man, far from it, but if you are over the age of 18 then wetsuits for a bit of casual swimming mark you out as a bit of a wimp if you ask me - if you're a serious surfer who's going to be in there all day then fair enough but otherwise, **** off.

As long as you state WHY you are cancelling.

Quick cook pasta, tried some by mistake. Awful beyond belief. It only takes 10 or 11 minutes for the real stuff., why is the fake quick monstrosity even needed.

When they pull out a roundabout to replace with traffic lights. Why???? Bracknell Coral reef junction. Not been there in ages but worked fine before now just a massive queue.

When you're pissed and hungry and Emek's is shut.

Fresh pasta takes much less than 10 or 11 minutes.

Especially with an 11 hour flight to look forward to, and your butt hurts and can't find a place for your legs before you even take off.

We've got a roundabout up here in Edinburgh called the Sheriffhall' which is in the middle of the bypass (their version of the M25 basically). It's more often than not backed up with traffic. They call it a 'nightmare' but seriously, by London's standards it's a clear road at 3am in the morning. Anyhoo...

On the odd occasion the traffic lights break down at this roundabout, everything works so much more smoothly and no backed up traffic. Who knew? When people are allowed to work things out for themselves - they can and it works a lot better.

Could have stopped after the first two words.

Actually, the first word.

Scooters.

Inexplicably loud for something going so slowly. Almost always being driven like a twat ... by a twat.

People who eat their lunch at their desks and refuse to answer their phone, answer any queries from people in office during this time meaning other people in the team have to wasting several minutes taking a message and relaying it on. Inefficiency cause by selfish imbeciles.

Aren't people allowed to have a break from work, even if they are still sat at their desk ?

They could even have a designated name for it...like lunch break :D
