I can't stand the England band either. I used to quite like watching the England women's team play on the BBC, until - you guessed it - the ******* official England band started turning up.

I really feel affronted that shops are already playing Christmas music. It just feels so wrong and yesterday whilst looking at clothes I actually wanted to go and complain to someone working in the store...which of course I didn't...which in itself annoyed me because I probably didn't want to come across as the kind of petty, anal person who would get annoyed by such a trivial thing as a particular tune being played while I'm shopping.

The whole Christmas thing is feckin madness.

The use of average as a negative, or to mean not good enough

I thought it was only negative if you put “bang” in front of it? I used to have a Standard 8 car - when they were being made in the 50s standard meant high quality, now put “bog” in front of it and it means rubbish. Mind you not sure superb has quite the same meaning it once had now it s used for a Skoda!

Depends on use, in football terms it means not good enough,in general use average means not outstanding,middle of the road, but not crap.:D

I think you’ll find it’s in the dictionary as an adjective, meaning amongst other things, ‘not very good’.

Is it because they will be getting off at the final station and want to be through the ticket barrier without queueing?

Some people walk through the trains in order to be in the first carriage for that reason.

Well, I was assuming that as he mentioned it was a morning train that it would be picking up considerably more passengers as it progressed on its journey to its destination.

Here in the Surrey area there is no such thing as an empty morning train for long!

Maybe they like to wait at a different part of the platform (eg under cover when it’s raining) and then walk through to the first carriage?

Or maybe they enter the platform near the back of the train (as you do at East Croydon if you’re going up to London) and so, if they’ve cut it fine, they don’t have to time to walk to the ‘right spot’ down the far end.

As a seasoned commuter I know you rarely have the perfect scenario...although personally I’d only walk through carriages if I couldn’t find a seat in the one I’d got on initially.

I think it is all about people of habit catching the same train every morning. You catch the 8.03 from Sanderstead or some such. And you see the same faces every morning. Two or three of exactly the same faces always walk through the carriages, when they could have just waited further up the platform. Slamming doors and bumps into seats all they way up.

PeterH 14-11-2017 05:51 PM

It wouldn't particularly annoy me. But it is an irrational thread. And If I were nursing a hangover, I would automatically think the serial carriage walker was a bit of an annoying prick. I would also wonder what his other annoying habits are.

Sure as sausages, he is the first standing up on a plane the moment the plane stops after landing. And the first out of his seat the moment the seatbely lights go out in flight, rustling around for something in the overhead baggage. Unorganised twats. Oh and very likely to be one of the pricks that overstep the hand luggage allowances as much as possible - again for a supposed quick getaway. Oh, Oh, Oh, and the last to turn off and first to turn on their cellphones on a flight - because they have super important lives.

when it's 5.50am in the morning and you are on a near empty train why would you frequently need to walk through 3-4 carriages to find a seat? I have no problem with the odd folk going through to locate a friend etc, but these people walk through and proceed to open the doors to the next carriage meaning more noise and some don't even bother to shut the carriage door.

PeterH 14-11-2017 08:45 PM

I used to be annoyed by my own tardiness. Having classes has cured me of that to a large degree. And Chilean timekeeping isnt the best, so I look positively punctual being 10 minutes late for everything.

More often than not I would be jogging to a lateish morning train at Norwood Junction, and more often than not it would be sitting there at the other platform as I came into the station. Resulting in a hell for leather launch under the tunnel to try and catch it. More often than not with me missing it, and having to catch a train to East Croydon to catch the fast one back up.

Other Mr Beanesque escapades involved me changing at Tulse Hill and popping out to get a sandwich and coffee while waiting for the connection.

Flexitime seemed to mean 10.15am for me a lot of days to the withering eye of my colleagues.

What a feck up, I was. I just dont think I cared enough TBH.

That's very London. When I walk back through Thornton Heath me and the Mrs always point out the big, expensive motors outside houses that look absolutely filthy and left to rot. When did the pride in keeping your house exteria clean and reasonably decent go? It's all about the bling these days isn't it. How soulless.

100% its a display of supposed wealth. Suppose it always has been. My street has zero off street parking and these cars wouldn't be out of place sitting in a drive of a million pound house. They could have added 200k+ to their house mortgage and had a bigger appreciating asset and a decent car bought and paid for. But would rather look like they have a million pound house when driving their car that's devaluing all the time and guzzling fuel.

People who over stir their coffee. After the spoon has gone round 20 times the sugar won't dissolve any more.
It was like that de Niro scene in Once upon a time in America this morning. Tosser trying to wear the arse out of the cup.

My wife has this ******* annoying habit of stirring then tapping the ******* spoon three or four time in the centre of the cup, and I do not even take ******* sugar

Buggies and prams with wheelbases that are massively wider than the chassis

There used to be no problem driving down most roads in south London, even when parked up on both sides. Now it’s a continuous game of Chuckle Brothers without the laughs

You should see the roads up here near the local private school. It's no wonder that Range Rover are having a bumper year.

Sadly London is so rammed with people even the 5 o clock trains are seat-less these days.

That's age. It is annoying. A good session is likely to stay with you three days when you are older.

I thinks that's why I read so many Palace fans on Facebook celebrating because they have given up the drink. They weren't alcoholics, but three pints was never enough and always ended up in much more. Leading to feeling crap for 3 days.

The cost of those nights out has soared, too.

For the most part I try and steer clear of hard liquor these days. My spiced rum and youtube music sessions are about 3 times a year.

Saying all that, I am on a session tonight - so should feel shite for the next three days.

Jeepers. They have the same thing in Santiago. People going in earlier and leaving later to avoid expanding peak times. Chile is listed in the OECD as the country where peope work the most hours, but produce the least. LOL

Unless the 5am brigade leave at 3pm...

I think I do to some beers. Occasionally, if I am drinking a certain tipple I start sneezing for 5 minutes.
