Idiots that don't know to give way to the right and just sit there, or pull out in front of you without looking regardless.

Other drivers full stop. Especially the one who managed to reverse off her drive straight into a busy road and into the side of our (6 month old) stationary car last week. Apparently she didn't see it, a 4m long car, directly behind her.

The only time I can set foot in a cinema is 2pm on a Wednesday afternoon, when hopefully, I'm one of only a handful of sad *****.
At any other time cinemas are inconsiderate, fidgeting, seat in front kicking, junk food* munching, phone using, just can't shut up for 90 minutes of their lives, twat magnets.

*cinema junk food is a special level of junk.

A back-formation, using the morphology of one word (often a loan word) to coin another by sticking it together with native language elements or inferring other parts of speech by analogy. Very common nowadays: cheeseburger, poonami, any number of -gate scandals after Watergate, any number of nicknames ending -meister (from the German Meister, champion or top expert).

Some of these are folk etymology. The ending -burger comes from the German word Hamburger (of course) but that merely means "something or someone from Hamburg". As with many of the indeclinable place name adjectives made by appending -er to a place name in German it came to be used as a noun to denote a local culinary speciality and the yanks supposed that meant a -burger was a meat patty of a kind specified by whatever prefixed it (ham being a plausible substitute for beef). Thus cheeseburger, chickenburger, veggieburger and so on. I once saw an idiot US tourist in a Munich tourist information office ask where "Cheeseburg" was. (What McDonalds was serving down the street no longer resembles the beef patty in a Semmel that inspired it).

Also in the folk etymology class belongs burgle, verb from burglar, which supposes wrongly that the noun is an agent (if it were it would end in -er, not -ar).

Things that annoy you
 
A few weeks ago:

Drive with daughter to local railway station to park up to get train to Palace.

Pay for all day parking ticket at said station.

Get train and end up letting in 95 min goal against Wolves.

Get train back and get in car and drive home.

Last night, get back from work and letter waiting for me on doorstep.

Open said letter and to my amazement and disgust find itís a fine from station car park for £60 for parking without buying ticket. Photos of me driving in and out et al.

Now the long, arduous battle to prove my innocence.

The dashboard ticket is long gone and all I have is a credit card transaction saying ďparking ticketĒ.

Saba cóts! Iím convinced these arseholes are scammers to prey on innocent people into thinking ďI donít have the energy to fight, so Iíll just pay itĒ. Iím one of millions that they probably do the same.

100% correct. Unfortunately they have managed to manipulate the Courts and the Government into affording them legitimacy. I take it this is Parking Eye or some similar bunch of bullying parasites? They are total scum and their business model basically amounts to demanding money with menaces. They've even managed to install their own "appeals procedure" so that you can't get a case adjudicated fairly if you dispute it.

I would be writing to the MD of the business Ibwas patronising - in this case the TOC - and making my extreme displeasure plain with a clear statement that he either calls his bullies off or expects to see the matter ventilated in the Press.

F***ing scum.

Iím still fighting one from nearly 3 years ago mate. Yes, 3 fecking years. Iíve told them to get a wriggle on and get it to court.

Long story short, my wife and daughter parked in the car park, daughter (12 at the time) went to the machine with the pound coin and accidentally put in the reg number of our other car and not the car they were in. Luckily we found the ticket in the car when we got the letter from parking eye. I fully explained the situation and hadnít heard anything for over a year when out of the blue about a month ago we got a letter from a debt recovery agent

Told them to fvck right off

A company called Saba park solutions. Itís not even about the money to a degree although I donít really want to pay the £60. Itís the principle that these wankers go after innocent people that have done the right thing. I mean, itís was £2.25 for the whole day as it was a Sunday. Why would anyone not pay that FFS. Something to do with Railway Byelaws.

I have sent the appeal and as always, you canít speak to someone on the phone with these things.

WP, I thought these things had a time period of like 6 months before they canít charge/prosecute.

A part of me wants to battle but another part thinks, I canít be dealing with the hassle of writing letters to and fro - which is probably what these scrotums rely on. They also probably send out 3 weeks later as most would have chucked the parking dash board slip.

One thing is for sure, Iíll never ever be parking at a station car park again as I donít trust them. The strange thing is, it was a one off as I normally park at my missus work and walk to the station as itís only a 5/10 min walk.

What could possibly go wrong with spraying millions of pellets from used car tyres everywhere? It's an ecological disaster (not to mention if there are health implications). My boy played in goal today and ended up covered in them, and a team mate had to pick some out of my son's eye. They are transferred to the surrounding area and beyond and will obviously get into the water system and food chain when people shower. Does anyone think things through?

There was a gap of well over a year from me telling them what had happened to then getting the debt recovery letter. I told them again and again another 10 months or so went by before another letter came. Just trying to scare us into paying. They can get fvcked. Theyíve had their money for the parking. No judge in the land is going to find in their favour when a 12 year old kid has accidentally put the wrong reg number in and we have paid the correct money for the use of the car park

DWP,you utter wankers.

Last year I got a letter demanding £480 from a loan I had 25 years ago when I last signed on.No problem I said,please supply proof that I never paid it back,or part off it.We don't have that information any longer but we do have this outstanding debt that we can't prove you never payed all/part of it back.
Roll forward 11 months and a letter drops through the door demanding I pay the money from there debt department or I will have a visit from the bailiffs.
I have payed the out standing debt without receiving proof I owed it(I did have a loan but i'm buggered if I can remember what was payed back 25 years ago)

The fella that took the payment was spot on and gave me some advice on chasing up the issue but he did tell me not to hold me breath to get anything sorted with DWP.

No, you're right. I saw some articles when I searched. A young goalkeeper died of cancer and his dad was campaigning for more research. As his son was regularly getting the pellets in his mouth and in cuts. I was shocked at how much debris is thrown up when a ball bounces. It's utter madness.

I was just about to post the same... not in a moaning sort of way, just an observation.

Re: Parking issues. Recently parked in a huge multi story parking structure which issues a ticket as you enter. When leaving you pay at one of multiple stations and have 15 minutes to exit. I pull up the the exit barrier and the person in front is having a problem. they are putting in there ticket and the gate is not lifting. This goes on for 3 or 4 minutes, so i get out and go see if I can help. By now there are 5 or 6 cars pulled up behind me... the guy in front is trapped. I can't see the guy is doing anything wrong so he pushes the button for help. Soon a guy shows up in a golf cart and gives the poor guy a lecture on how he hasn't paid (which he insist he had) and he needs to go back in and pay at "the office". Finally golf cart man puts in a master ticket and the gate opens. Stuck man drives off! My turn up to bat... nervously I put my ticket in with golf cart man hovering. Gate lifts up straight away and off we go! Not sure if all the people backed up behind me made the 15 minute limit. I wonder how they handled that?

My point is... how cost effective is this? I'm guess the structure could house 500 to a 1000 cars charging a lot of money to park. All these fancy ticket machines can't be cheap... why not just have a man (or woman) at the gate taking your ticket and to sort out any problems? I'm sure what happened with us must happen numerous times a day causing frayed nerves.

Again, not moaning, just making conversation. :rolleyes:

From a quick search, all the studies show no or negligible risk of cancer.

Personally, from a playing perspective, they are much better than the old artificial pitches

El Aguila 13-10-2019 06:14 PM

My kids played on them since they were four or five - they're everywhere in Spanish club football. I have heard this thing about lymphoma and you can see the argument, nothing proven, though. Bloody pellets get everywhere though. The newer ones are far better.

Does seem like madness.

Hate to say it in urban areas some of the particulate pollution comes from micro rubber dust from wearing tyres. They estimate some forty thousand tons of tyre dust annually in Europe.

What doesn't end up in the air gets washed down the drains and enters the water system.

Yes, I appreciate wash off from roads is a big issue too.

Yes it did. You have some reason to check your phone not just situationally to some emergency happening that I cant figure out? Otherwise maybe your wife is pregnant or something or have a loved one that is ill but these are the exception rather than the rule, a situational time. Must people that look at their phones isnt because they are checking for an emergency but because of any notional pang of boredom they need a quick dopamine hit that social media offers.

I politely ask you to stop digging and move on, on this particular occasion.

Let it go.

99% of people dont need to look at their phones at the cinema is my only point, if he has a important reason ofcourse but this isnt the point of the original post by Maidstoned.

The poster himself has kept this going. It’s not ‘digging’ he called people ‘conformist sheep’ for not looking at their phone, and then it swiftly changed to some other argument...

You are spot on. Modern standards, innit. "I can, so I will. So f*ck you". No such thing as ushers these days. In the theatre, ushers, fellow theatre-goers, even the actors call you out. No such luck in cinemas. Common denominator rules (with the emphasis on common :()

Bloke living opposite me in Maidstone had it happen twice, third time I was coming home from a late one in town to see his van being pushed down the road. That was a fun 10 minutes. :)

Cyclists.....I expect they’ve featured before on this thread!

Driving home at 6ish today, it’s getting dark and it’s raining. Two cyclists wearing dark clothes riding black bikes and not a single working light between them. Neither front nor back light, nothing at all to help a driver to spot them.

When they went past I saw they were men in the 60s/70s. Idiots.

Two things today.
The parents that park on the lines outside schools. Same ones every day. Yesterday there was a traffic warden. Not a single car parked. Today exactly the same ones back again that is see every day that block up the road.
Mothers with prams walking along on a phone. Where has interaction with children gone? They get a bit bigger and bam, they get given the phone as if it was a dummy. Ditch the phones and talk and play with your kids :(

KYLIE MINEAGLE 18-10-2019 03:31 AM

Mrs KM works in school administration. Every so often the wardens will hit and book people. So what do the booked ones do. Phone the school office to complain.

The only way it will balance is with the audience adapting and starting to see through it and people looking for more indepth stimulation rather than someone saying ‘hi guys, listen to me’

I guess the people that watch it get value from it, otherwise people wouldnt watch it. I suppose it echos the time of celebrity where Kim Kardasian a no talent fake rich bitch is the pinnacle of celebrity, hopefully this will adjust to more people with dignity and talent again as ‘societies celebrities’

We need rolemodels not narcissistic whores.

We now have reality-type shows that feature as their Ďcelebrityí contestants people who are only known for being in.....other reality shows.

bubbs11 20-10-2019 05:28 PM

This random elderly woman I don’t know from Adam, has taken to sexist heckling of me every time I bump into her out and about. The other day I was in Morrison’s and had my daughter in the trolley and didn’t see where I was going and rammed into a cereal display, knocking it over. There she was, right on the spot, ‘Only a man! Only a man!’.

Then yesterday, I was at the high street carrying my daughter in one arm and a bag full of shopping in the other and she pops up again, ‘That’s what I like to see - a man doing some work for a change!’

How long a stretch do you get if you push an old lady into oncoming traffic?

Sick Bucket 20-10-2019 05:36 PM

I'm sure this has been mentioned before but female football commentators, do we really HAVE to have them!? I know everything needs to be equal all the time on everything but until I hear one that doesn't get on my tits I'd rather just not have to have them.

Honestly I'm all for women's football and I hope it continues to grow and thrive, my daughter plays, comes to Palace with me etc Likewise refs, linesmen sorry lineswomen, officials all good... but I just find listening to a woman doing the commentary bloody annoying. Sorry.

Some of them just have awful voices. Like Vicki Sparkes, the shouty lady on match of the day.

The women who commentate in American football are pretty good on the whole imo.

Well yeah that's fair comment.

I guess it's that 'we have to have a woman' thing regardless of if she's actually any good or not. 'Positive discrimination' :jerkit:

Wayne Andrews is God 21-10-2019 03:23 AM

Women unfortunately sound like children in vocal tone when doing the Clive Tylesley school of over the top sensationalism commentary that they all do now.

I think all commentary is awful now, they spend most of the time trying to hype something that doesnt need hyping, I would much prefer a whimsical, anecdotal jovial style, like the good old Barry Davies. Someone needs to have some balls and be different and it could all change, as they are sheep. Networks are so desperate for faux passion though. It’s all too serious now.

Hedgehog 21-10-2019 05:59 AM

I really rate Arlo White who commentates for NBC over here. Very old school IMHO.

Not sure you get him in The UK, unless he is doing the American Football commentary, which I believe maybe where he made his name.

The rot started in the late 90s with the emergence of Reality TV. Then that was hugely propagated by the unspeakable hideousness of X Factor & its many copyists. Been downhill fast ever since.

bubbs11 21-10-2019 07:35 AM

I think the X Factor has done more harm to children than all the 1970’s Top of the Pops presenters put together.
