Doesn't happen in Cyprus. They just go as soon as the crossing is empty.

Good.

Christmas cards annoy me. And birthday cards for that matter. In fact, add greetings cards in general to the list.

Likewise driving along with nothing but an empty road behind you and, rather than wait 10 seconds, a car pulls out of a side road in front of you causing you to slam the brakes on then dawdle along until the div finally gets up to speed.

Purepalace 22-12-2017 01:32 PM

Drivers who pull into a single car size gap, (between parked cars either side of the road), that you are already driving in and causing 5 minutes of unnecessary manoeuvring rather than giving way, waiting 10 seconds and avoiding all that.

Purepalace 22-12-2017 01:33 PM

Drivers that don't give way to traffic coming uphill. Is this no longer taught?

And yes I have been out and about Christmas shopping today.

I get you.

But said pedestrian is obeying the laws of the road and doing everything correctly. If they chose to randomly cross in the USA, for example, a punitive police officer could fine them for jaywalking.

It may annoy you, but you are wrong on this.

Personally, I would, as a capable adult, look up and down the road and cross when your car has passed so as not to cause an inconvenience. But thet might just be me being a pussy.

This.

There's a few hills round South Norwood, Upper Norwood, CP etc and on my daily travels every **** wants to race down the hill so you have to pull over into a gap whilst you are trying to get up the hill. Sylvan Hill, Auckland Road and Stambourne Way are my particular favourites for arsehole drivers who do this.

Another highway code one that no one aheres to that angers me is when two cars are wishing to turn right opposite each other at a cross roads, you are supposed to drive past each other then turn right, not before in front of each other, but I am forced into doing it the mistaken way as it will mean an accident... READ THE HIGHWAY CODE :wallbash:

Not a pussy, but considerate of the world around you, too many people dont think outside of their own perspective. Like dimwits who dont let people off the train first... let them clear the space you want to take no? And help everyone.

So what happens when three cars are waiting to turn right from each direction? How do you turn behind the opposing facing car if there are other cars directly behind it ?

Yo wait until they have all gone. You should only go in front of the opposing car if the road is arrowed.

As because driving in front of cars creates a blindspot on to potential on-coming traffic.

It seems that onside turning has been relaxed in the highway code though, apprently you can do it if it’s safe. When I did my driving test it wasnt allowed or would be a fail. I still think driving past is a better option as you both clear the way for each other to drive past and you can see the road ahead.

I wouldn't stand for that Pedro. I tore into the English teacher (non native natch) at my kids' school for mispronouncing his surname.

I'm assuming that's an insult and, if so, how is it different to dago or spick?

Pat of the Palace 23-12-2017 12:52 AM

Guiri is the word they use for northern European foreigners. Casual racism as per usual.

Negative term for a tourist, typically a blonde beach dweller, who enjoys a drink.

Not appropriate term for a teacher to call their pupil.

Context could be relevant....could it have been a one-off jokey aside, said with a smile?

Or has it been said nastily, or repeatedly? You don’t want a teacher using this sort of term regularly, because then the other pupils might pick up on it and think it’s OK to repeat it, potentially causing issues for his daughter.

Purepalace 23-12-2017 12:57 AM

Thanks Pat. Would the words dago or spick be considered the same i.e casual racist?

Me calling myself a Guiri, or my Malaga supporting mates who call themselves "The Guiri Army" is one thing, a teacher using it to a 12 year old girl is something else entirely.

Yeah, true. I don’t think they think of it as an insult. But sure, it’s not all right.

El Aguila 23-12-2017 12:37 PM

Apparently it comes from a Basque word, “Guiristino”, used in the wars of succession in the 19th century by the Carlists for the other side, those who supported the claims of Maria Cristina. The Basques were mostly Carlists and thought of the güiris as liberal, foreign and hence a bit sinister.

El Aguila 23-12-2017 01:12 PM

Yanks and Aussies are definitely güiris as well. And frogs. Italians, Greeks or Portuguese, I think not. What I don’t know is the status of black or Asian British. I think they probably are güiris although one of the main characteristics is going red on the beach.

Chavettes taking their brats out with them when christmas shopping. I just dont get that lack of thinking on their part. Pushchairs, crying bored kids, and shouting mothers, in shopping arcades at the busiest time of the year.

Surely, with a bit of planning a relative or friend could have taken them for 5 or 6 hours.

And this happens in Santiago, too.

When you see a personalized plate and can't understand what it means...

This maybe more prevalent in The US where you can request what you want.

I saw one the other day that had on the license plate frame "Grammar Police", and the actual plate was GRMAPLC (or something like that). Which in my mind might be a tad ironic.

I should add that when I saw this the first thing I thought of was the BBS!

Jurassic Park annoys me. Had the chance to make a great, powerful movie there with the amazing dinosaur effects but they write a piss poor insipid script that a 5 year old could’ve wrote to accompany it.

Had the ingredients to be a ‘Jaws’ or ‘Close Encounters’ but ended up like a CBeebies historical drama. WASTE!

The Police,


A warning to all, be careful about drink driving as we are getting close
to Christmas and the police are out there checking on people.

Last
night I was out for a few drinks. One thing lead to another and I had a
few too many beers and then went onto the whisky. Not a good idea..

Knowing I was over the limit, I decided to leave my car at the pub and
took a bus home. Sure enough, I passed a police checkpoint, where they
were pulling over drivers and performing breathalyser tests. But because I
was in a bus they just waved it past.

I arrived home safely and without
incident, which was a real surprise as I've never driven a bus before
and I am not even sure where I got it from.

Happy Christmas all.

SOUTHGATE EAGLE 24-12-2017 10:36 PM

I got stuck round a friend's house today and had to endure his children playing 'Jedward' videos on the television. It reminded me that I used to consider those two blow-dried, squeaking fairies to be the most annoying turd ever to emerge from the festering arsehole of humanity.

Even years after they thankfully f*cked off back to whatever hole they crawled out of, today's experience reminded me that I'd like to arrange to have the two of them tied up naked in a cage with a sexually frustrated gorilla, pumped up with more Viagra than Hugh Hefner took in his entire lifetime. Next, I'd like to find the music executive individual that shit them upon the world and strap him into a chair with devices that keep his eyes open and moist, as in Clockwork Orange, and force him to watch endless loops of what I had to see this afternoon. His food intake and bodily wastes would be maintained by I.V., foley catheters and colostomy bags while constant wakefulness would be via by stimulants until the inanity of his own horrifying creation caused his brain to stroke out. Then he can dribble in a wheelchair for the rest of his days in a nurses home, with feeding instructions tattooed to his f*cking forehead for the convenience of the staff.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I drink tea from a Jedward mug. WAIT A SEC! WAIT A SEC! I’m a bit of a musical fascist and a friend of mine thought, ‘what could be the most abhorrent thing to buy me’. I took it in good humour and find I still use it, but forget sometimes when we have guests or workman over, and realise I’m getting ‘that’ look and suddenly click and have to explain myself. It would probably be easier to just get myself a Palace mug eh but this mug holds sentimental value.

Had the ingredients to be a ‘Jaws’ or ‘Close Encounters’ but ended up like a CBeebies historical drama. WASTE!

They didn't have the opportunity to do any such thing, it was based on a Michael Crichton book.

People who turn up last minute for a flight. I'm currently at Sydney airport six hours before my flight

Polish Pete 26-12-2017 05:17 AM

Well I humbly suggest they should’ve based it on someone else’s book. :)

There's a fine line. I had a 22hr stopover in Dubai so went out for a bit but felt knackered and headed back to the airport some time in the afternoon. They wouldn't let me through to departures even though I'd already checked in, already had my boarding card and just wanted something to do/eat/drink and somewhere to sit. I was too early. 10hrs is too early, they said. Had to spend 3hrs sitting in the nothing zone until The Man would allow me into the terminal proper.

Why would anyone turn up for flight 6 hours early ?

Polish Pete 26-12-2017 08:19 AM

Polish Pete 26-12-2017 08:43 AM

Sky Sports. Looking at the weather outside and looking at the weather forecast for Thursday night I know when I would rather be watching Palace v Arsenal

Christmas. Boring, boring, boring.

Unless there are kids involved, which in my case there are not. Then it is excellent.

Finally convinced the missus that we should go away next year.

Neighbour across the road has been blocked in for three days. Coincidentally the car doing the blocking now has three flat tyres.

I’ve not reached that level of frustration yet.. but it’s certainly a option.

I echo the lack of Palace game today.

PeterH 26-12-2017 01:57 PM

My internet being slow to not working. Thus, posting and reading BBS on phone.

Taking Harry Kane out of my Fantasy League team a couple of weeks ago, when i swore blind it was Aguero i'd shifted out, and watching him now rack up his fifth goal in 130 mins of football while i'm sat here with Callum bloody Wilson, Aguero and a no doubt injured Moratta as alternatives. Fantasy football is such a wind up.

PeterH 26-12-2017 04:05 PM

I have kept him in mine. But yes there are other Fantasy League irritations.
