people working through their lunch breaks to try and earn brownie points, making their fellow workers who are practicing their basic civil rights to have a break, look bad.

Yep, put your health at risk while your making Directors higher up the chain richer.

The same Directors that wouldn't give it a nano second thought to relieve you of your duties if the companies profits where at risk.

It's not really ESSTRAYER. the E in the middle of estrella is an E sound (not EE but E), nor ESSTREYER with the Schwa sound ending as that's more an English language thing.
The ending really should sound more like an A (not an Ay, but an A), so, ESS-TRE-YA

I work with a guy who goes one step further and works late on Friday nights and send emails, copying management of course, on weekends.

That isn't even the most annoying part, one of my responsibilities is to email project and account managers asking for authorisation to invoice specific clients. Often we get the numbers we need to invoice for on a Friday afternoon. Being a normal human who wants to go home for the weekend I will wait until Monday to do this, he has decided to take it upon himself to take this task off my hands without even asking me and send the emails on a Friday night or over the weekend copying in managers whilst doing it :hmph:

Last week I was eating a banana at lunch at looking at The BBS and a guy comes up and says, "Am I interrupting your lunch?"

"Eh... Yes"

"Well I looked into this problem....... Etc., etc." idiot!

I started to go eat in my car, but it's just too bloody hot this time of year.

How the media is fawning over how "great" Liverpool are because they beat Arsenal 4-0. Forgetting that they drew with Watford and only managed to beat us 1-0 - unfortunately even Huddersfield and Swansea have done better than that.

I hate it when people make up **** and post it as if it's real. Ages spent photoshopping images, faking text and links. Why? Running fake profiles and messages. I can't get my head around what makes people want to do it at all and even less as to why they invest so much time.

Martin H 28-08-2017 11:52 PM

I hate the fact that so many fans wallow in the chaos, mistakes and problems that face their own club. They seem to get a huge kick out of sticking the knife in and making it worse. Again, why? I don't need an answer, it's rhetorical as is the point above. I realise that it is how 'it is' and won't change but I don't understand and I really do hate it.

People who take their 500 phones into the sea to take selfies, and then have a meltdown when they drop them. Arses.

And others who drop their phones down the toilet. How the f*ck does that occur? I live in a world full of idiots.

Lawyers, surveyors and architects. Thicker than you could ever imagine.

No problem with the oldies generally, but when I'm down in Cornwall on hols it does bug me when they walk (v slowly) 2-3 abreast along the narrow pavements. And just stop to window shop without tucking in towards said shop.

It's impossible to get past so everyone else, including families with buggies, has to weave in and out the narrow roads and traffic.

Just go single file in busy sections.

Can't get away with anything now! With Mrs Bubbs at work i could stick the little-un in front of the box with enough sweets and DVD's to keep her glued for hours, while I lounge back on the settee checking out the BBS. Not now. Off goes that annoying FaceTime ringer and I'm scrambling about switching the TV off, snatching bags of seeets and crisps out my daughter's hands, and getting jigsaws, books and colouring pens out and looking hard at play with the wee one.

Oh yes and then comes the 'Why is she still in her PJ's?', 'Her hair's a mess!', 'She's still got sleep in her eyes!'

Bloody 1984!

It's very noticeable in Zones 1 and 2 when the private schools break up for the holidays. F*ckers don't appear to have legs or use public transport. Badly driven/parked 4 x 4's everywhere.

Every single one of those events causes gridlock down here. If it's not the DFL's causing grief, then it's the SDLIB's heading north that do.

penguin7 02-09-2017 12:49 PM

Going into Tescos for a paper or pack of cigarettes and the guy at the front of the queue is doing his lottery

First he hands over a wad of entries, half of which have 5 or 7 boxes ticked and need correcting.

Then its the lucky dips, some or for today some are for Wednesday, oh and these ones are for both !

Next he hands over a mountain of last weeks tickets to be checked, although he already knows they are all losers.

Then its the scratch cards, and he always changes his mind 3 times about which ones he wants.

Finally he disagrees with the cashier about the bill.

Then I notice that the woman behind him in the queue also has a handful of tickets and go somewhere else.

It's been slowly dumbing down over the last 10 to 12 years and there's no sign of it abating. To add to that, the beeb & Sky 24hr news websites are becoming more like the old National Enquirer every day with chav stories and those stupid 'Rhetorical Question' headlines where the answer is a one line no brainer but they stretch it into essay.

( That's a dissertation for all you slow millenials and is a perfectly crumulent word!) :cool:

It also has become more like You've been framed rather than a news site with more videos than articles. The articles they do have are littered with spelling and grammar mistakes.

The university VC popping up to defend her 350k salary rather than, er, shutting the f*ck up.

Same with these 'news' sites Twitter feeds.

I had to unfollow The Independent's feed as it's worse than Buzzfeed, this is the kind of thing they Tweet every 10 minutes...

Why are most children's programmes presented by 'zaney' wannabe models, who mainly talk a load of rubbish?

Why can't we have some normal run of the mill looking presenters, who actually have some substance? Timmy Mallet has a lot to answer for!

TV Quiz shows where the contestants are prompted to debate their answers for five minutes, either before answering or after answering.

I swear I just saw Richard Osman debating with Annika Rice whether cows produce milk.

The fact there is a ' Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge expecting 3rd child' thread

We just watched that. I hate quiz shows, but as my boy put it on we played along. Thought it was better than most as we could all play along (and I won, which made it much better [emoji3]). Catchphrase was the best for this.

It's filler that helps them to edit the programme later to the required length.

For example, a quiz show can vary in length depending on the calibre of the contestants. So if the head to head round on Pointless, for example, is a 2-0 win and then they win the pointless final round with their first guess, the show would be short.

So Armstrong and Osman record chit chat with the contestants, and each other, which can be edited in or out as necessary.

As you say, it can be banal at times.

Bring back 15 to 1. Just ask loads of questions, none of this tension building bollox.
