Also peasants who drag their cutlery through their teeth. A withering look in their direction is usually enough to ensure it stops there and then.

"I'm happy enough that they're eating!" is one reaction I get.

My boss seems to want to do a couple of these.

In the job I was fired from unidentified poor performance was a factor. I think this actually equated to telling my boss what I thought of her ways of managing in a WFH environment and NOT attending a single team meeting hosted by her and her group of arselickers.

I was doing a bit of food shopping earlier, and as I picked some yoghurts a random woman looked at what I was getting, checked out what I already had in my trolley, looked at me and said 'oh, are you on Slimming World too?' I replied with 'you need to work on your chat up lines luv'.

I would love to have seen her reaction if the conversation had been reversed!!!

The killing of banter that PC has brought upon us.... Oh for one day back in Kenny Everett and Benny world. The total acceptance that minorities have the right to dictate that normal overheard banter is possibly against the law as they get offended. The Grassing culture that started with "If you see this Lorry driving badly phone this number" Helicopter Parents, People thinking we are more racist today than we were in the past... "We're not" Which has led to people looking for the slightest offence in the every day language. I just think we've lost more than we've gained out of all of this.

Seems to me I've lived through the freest time in society late 60's early 70's to the dawn of an almost draconian new age of conservatism.

Feel so so sorry for the kids behind us. That's assuming we can call them Kids nowadays.

Coaching a football team, not 100% sure what happened in the build up, one child fouls another and the other immediately gets up and takes a few swings which may or may not have connected. I say to parent that I feel the child taking the swings is totally in the wrong and is responsible for the part that I saw happen regardless of build up, and their initial reaction prior to me attempting to explain myself more is favouritism. Like, I'm giving you and your son the chance to give your side of the story and explain why it was a good idea to punch someone and I am the one being horrible?!

You did, so long as you are/were white and male.

Itís telling that giving other people the same opportunity to contribute to social norms that you have always had now feels like oppression to you.

The slow disappearance of the ability to use the word "no" on any website, instead replaced by "not now" or "maybe later"

"Do you want to receive our useless daily newsletter, full of inane and useless shyte for the rest of your life? Your only two options are, "not now", or "maybe later" which means we can ask you this same pointless question every time you log on, for ever."

F*ck right off and stick it right up your passage along with HSBC's cookies.

Indeed. A year or two back the Australian womens side, who are I thinked ranked top 4 lost 0-7 to Newcastle (Aust) U16s side.

Sharkba1t 01-10-2020 09:23 AM

The dropping of the definite article “the”. It’s not the lockdown, it’s just lockdown. The political parties annual conferences are referred to as Conference rather than the Conference. And that twat Charlie Stayt on the BBC referring to the Cabinet as simply Cabinet.
He is also the master of the pointless question. Often he asks an outside reporter questions like “give us a sense of the mood in the community”. How the fk is that news?

One would think sirdougie is trying a tad too hard to appear right on.

Probably hates himself for being born a white male football supporter.

When womens football stops being shite then it can climb up the ladder of importance.
Vastly overblown version of something that you'd barely pause to watch in your local park. At international level worth a look to see some decent thighs if you are into 'sporty' muscular women - and that in itself is somewhat dodgy territory for various reasons.

And as for how he snidely misinterpreted Ozzie's comment.

What a sap. Trying toooooo hard.

There's a presenter on CBBC's MOTD kickabout (kids' footy show) & every / single / word / she / says is delivered with an unbelievable level of incredulity.

She'll say something like 'Andros Townsend made 14 Premier League starts for Crystal Palace last year' & make it sound like he's climbed Mount Everest, swum the Amazon & flown to the moon in the same afternoon.

Things that annoy you
 
Gateline staff at train station saw that the ticket gates were becoming crowded and social distancing was non existent. He opened a overflow gate and shouted to crowd ďthis way and can you have tickets readyĒ

Nothing wrong so far?


Some Karen stayed behind for 10 mins to wait for station manager to complain he didnít say ďpleaseĒ.

mushroom 02-10-2020 12:05 PM

This gateline staff has been punched (and finished his shift afterwards) and threatened to be stabbed in last two weeks.

Actually the stabbing story is quite funny... the gateline staff is Eastern European... a punter threatened to ďshank himĒ... he lost his rag... really started shouting at the stabby chav.... it seems he misheard the word ďshankĒ and thought it was something far more sinister

Simple solution to that for me. Stop watching. Esp the re cap shows. TVs answer to internet click bait (you'll never guess what these actors look like now) - utter waste of time.

fact and figure heavy TV or YouTube videos shows that have to caption or vocalise the imperial measurement also as an exact metric every time the imperial one is used. I was watching a documentary on rockets and it was constantly 'This rocket weighs 20,000 lbs or 9071.8kg, It can fly at 2000mph or 6473.3 KM/H and can travel 7000 miles or 11265.4 km'. Just stick to the one please!

Worse still is US programs that have been replaced with UK commentary like the one at night that shows spectacular crashes. ' The speed boat hit a freak wave and flew 30.48 metres in the air!' That'll be about 100 feet is it then?

Absolutely do (and counter-sink), but you can't pre-drill the part the screw drives into,which is what caused a split in this case. Also I had the driver torque on the lowest setting, and what I thought was a good distance from the edge.

Today I re-installed the Youtube app on my firestick. Why can't I just log in to my account using my username and password, why does it force me to link from a computer or a phone?

Sounds like that came from the Donald Trump playbook...

Only people that suffer from "man-flu" are women.

Agreed. They should be informed that the correct response is oh FFS.

On very misty mornings drivers who see no reason to turn on their lights.

You're barking up the wrong tree what that one.

glenn.f 05-10-2020 11:45 PM

Those fasteners that sort of slot in on bags of cat food or occasionally sweet bags. What a pain in the the arse they are...the amount of minutes I've wasted trying to seal a bag, before launching it to one side in disgust. Yet on another day they clip together without a fuss.

People who think wearing a grubby Hi-Vis vest is a perfect substitute for actually having any lights on their bike at night.

Transfer windows. Hate them.

Not quite.

Townsend volleys a rocket from 35 yards past Ederson into the net at the Etihad = "Oh my days".

Sakho falls on his arse in his own penalty area and gives away another goal = "Oh FFS".

ITKs who get my hopes up by saying things like Ďlots of irons in the fireí, ĎIíd be amazed if we didnít get anyone iní and Ďbe patient, targets lined upí only for nothing to happen as usual.

And those that openly speak as if they are ITK on here but have contacts that clearly are out of the loop, or just making it up. There are serial candidates and I fall for them every time. Stellavista had it nailed this year and against the flow called it a while back - respect SV.

Indeed. I have given up with the TH forum, it's just too tiresome sifting through the nonsense to find something of interest. There's a reason the likes of Clapham Grand stopped posting here.

Shame that.

They love the attention, all the little hints they drop, the cryptic knowing comments - they get a much wider audience on Twitter than here.

I take no credit for that, and it certainly doesn't please me, Martin. Could still be wrong if we make a signing or two from the Championship, but those sources are very trustworthy.

Guessing they are still saying the same huh?

TBH I don't want players for the sake of it or suggest we should pay mad money - just hoping we can tackle the gaps and the scale of the looming problem (contract/age) within our means. The 1 starter loan, 1 short term matchday squad and 1 mid term potential doesn't feel enough. Couple more wouldn't fix it all but would substantially change that assessment. I can't work out how we handle next Summer with rolling over a bunch of older players again.

Apologies but I missed what you said previously. Would you mind repeating it?
