Tesco’s having a ‘trolley cleaning station’ inside the store - after I’ve picked up the trolley outside. Clean the ****ers before customers pick them up, you planks.

I think it may just be YouTube trying to get you to pay. When you do, it stays on while you use different apps plus no adverts.

I think.

Yes. Totally. 100%.

A bully and a massive bell. My Mrs. used to work with him though... and she likes him.

Mind you she likes me too so thereís no accounting for taste.

Go to YouTube via the browser, request the desktop site, find your video, press play, close the browser, swipe down from the top of the screen and then press play again.

Multitask away.

He gets really pissed off when people spell his name "Ramsey" instead of "Ramsay".


So well done you! :p

I know people that have worked with him and apparently he is a very nice and considerate guy outside of his TV persona.

I like watching his shows. I wouldn't like to be spoken to like that, especially if I were half way competent and felt undeserving of such tirades - especially if I were being constantly singled out among a group of workers.

Some of his victims deserve it though. But it is just reality TV, and you have to take some of the stage management with a pinch of salt.

As for those that own a shit restaurant. Most need a dose of reality that they aren't the kind of people that can survive without an employer's pay cheque - everything thing else is just fantasy for them.

Is there a suggestion here they went to India for cheaper medical treatment?

west country boy 04-04-2020 06:28 AM

According to the BBC report they spend five months each year in Inja so are hardly living in penury.

PeterH 04-04-2020 07:49 AM

Probably used the time to research how easy it was to get treatment. Maybe better than a NHS waiting list?

If they spent 5 months every year out there, you would have thought they had built some relationships with locals and acquired some friends.

Enough to not feel totally abandoned?

Or perhaps they were just reenacting The Exotic Marigold Hotel.

I've seen him doing a kids Master Chef thing here and he is really good with the kids. He is also doing a kind of Anthony Bourdain, Parts Unknown show where he is traveling to remote parts of the world and experiencing the culture and the cooking of the locals. Again he comes across as a really good guy in this.

I have no idea which is the real Gordon Ramsay (nor care really), but I suspect it is somewhere between the two... a nice guy, with a shit temper. In other words, your typical Scotsman (or is that "Scot").

The f*cking Homeopaths are having it large on social media, because the man who would be king has got through the illness and has a homeopathic doctor. I understand, and respect, the case for alternative /complimentary medicine, but some of these people are in the high reaches of the David Icke scale.

You lucky bastards.
We have it alternating weeks, so every two weeks for recycling / domestic but two weeks ago the recycling was not collected as they are prioritising domestic waste, which was collected.
If they don't collect the recycling this week, it's going to start getting very messy.

Homeopathy is the bollocks. There is a case to be made for some alternative medicines, but this is essentially drinking water.

Which in fairness is good for you, but you don't need an expert to advise you on that.

I seem to remember years ago the Queen's speech was sent out early, so that the Commonwealth could see / hear it at the same time. Before the days of the internet.

Maybe they haven't updated their SOP.

Happy to be corrected on that if I'm wrong.

Nice weather yesterday. What do some people immediately think when it’s nice weather? Let’s have a great, stinking bonfire so you can’t go in your garden or hang clothes up outside. What makes people equate nice weather with the need to have a bonfire? And before anyone mentions it, our council is still collecting garden waste.

When the revolution comes, these people will be put on a bonfire so they can get up and close to their preferred method of neighbourhood torture. And it will be on gloriously sunny day that we cremate these arseholes; the last hurrah before our gardens and our skies become smoke free zones forever more.

A Wooden Fish On Wheels 07-04-2020 12:48 AM

The etiquette, from when I was a kid and we used to regularly burn garden waste, was to wait until dusk when people would shut their windows and will have (hopefully) brought in the washing off the line.

I've got one of those portable fire pit things and will certainly sit out with a beer once the temperature comes up a bit. I like to transfer the BBQ coals to the pit after a feed up, and burn some logs on top :)

Idiots that perpetuate hoax messages on bleeding facebook and other social media, without going to the trouble to at least do a simple google check. Hpax Slayer or Snopes would be better but bleeding hell. What is wrong with these people, are they gullible, stupid, naive, like being scared.... WTF is it ?

I actually think I have anger management issues over this. Spreading falsehoods and bullshit has to be the ultimate in online stupidty. It's like a IQ barometer.

Spreading Dance of the Pope bullshit equated to one less facebook contact.

Its their reaction when you call the bullshit with links disproving it that annoys more. The virtual shrug of the shoulders and couldnt care less attitude is ridiculous.

I can't really get annoyed by Facebook. BUT, Facebook stories seems to be a new level of twattery that has appeared fairly recently.

PeterH 07-04-2020 09:34 AM

What does annoy me with it is it doesn't appear to be very linear - date wise. I just want to see things by latest date and time first.

The adverts are a bit too much as well.

I really just need to get on their and cull everyone I don't know personally. Take about 200 random Palace fans off the list for starters. Lose all those 'feel for ya Babe posts'.

See whether having just 50 facebook friends and about 5 useful groups makes the whole experience worthwhile. lol

Perfect time to enact that cull.

The adverts are a bit too much as well.

I really just need to get on their and cull everyone I don't know personally. Take about 200 random Palace fans off the list for starters. Lose all those 'feel for ya Babe posts'.

See whether having just 50 facebook friends and about 5 useful groups makes the whole experience worthwhile. lol

Perfect time to enact that cull.

I've been unfollowing many many people of late. One old mate of mine has gone full on conspiracy theory, to such an extent he is sharing any theory. I pointed out that for every interesting thing he's sharing it is getting ,ost amongst 50 ridiculous theories...I got shit for that so he is now hidden.

Its unbearable. Almost unusable. ******* Faceache. If it wasn't for Discover Chile (which I barely look at nowadays) or the teaching opportunities I'd have kicked into touch ages ago

Interactive adverts, you get them on the Channel 4 website, you have to choose which 'fun' ad you don't want to watch.

Honestly just **** OFF I'm making a mental note of the companies that are doing these and promise myself never to buy one of their products. I hate them so much it's making my blood boil just thinking about it.

For my sins, I joined a group about a year back for "Brits" (for a start I hate that term) in the the town where I live out here. I think I joined at the suggestion of an old co-worker from back in England who ended up living out here also.

It appears to be mainly frequented by women with a few exceptions.

What is annoying is they think everything coming out of the UK is worthy of posting, watching, or eating.

I get it, I was like this the first 5 years or so out here, but these people have been out here, 10, 15 20+ years and need to let it go.

And the funny .gif's, banners and YouTube links, are not really funny, just because they come out on the UK.

Some people really should not have left "Home" as they still call it.

I hate the big screen grabbing ads that follow you as you scroll down to get past the bastards

Try saying that you're an immigrant, not an ex-pat...people in those groups lose their shit. :D

It is currently good for watching our mate Andrew taking the piss on the Ex Pats group.

I joined in as well. With some draconian rules coming in about face masks in Las Condes, I recommended vacuum cleaner bags. See how that goes down.

I did have a cull a couple of years back of Palace fans that were Brexit racists and spent all day seemingly finding ways to have a go at immigrants for London's problems.

I got into it with a couple of them, but the usual answer of me not living in England, so I had no idea of how bad their lives were.

Unfriend.
