Balding blokes who grow beards to compensate.

You've lost your head hair so growing it on the bottom half of your face ain't going to replace it you wankers.

Worse than all that are the chaps who sport the Bill Bailey look : bald on top, but long at the back and sides. Looks ridiculous. Just shave it off you fekwits.

PeterH 06-12-2023 03:15 PM

Why does that annoy you chaps?

It should amuse rather than annoy, much the same way as that 5 year window when the metrosexual lumberjack look became the in thing. People working in design studies in trendy cities who couldn't be trusted not to dismember themselves should they ever get to hold a chainsaw.

What about if you’ve had a beard for over a decade anyway?

Lingfield Eagle 06-12-2023 03:39 PM

Being called a wanker by someone who i've never met simply because despite going bald I decide to cultivate a short and well kept beard (this should be in the mildly annoyed thread as I have a million more pressing concerns than being anonymously insulted by someone).

Oooh bit harsh GorBlimey. I lost my hair at 22 and have had a beard last 20 years. It's not much fun having a blank head, so a bit of lower facial hair gives me something to look at, and rub 70's smelling Boots after shave balm in.

Historical terms being described as 1066 CE I always have to translate to 1066 AD. I think I’m just getting old, which is also annoying.

People putting their feet on train seats. Seems to be loads more at it these days. I’ve given up pointing it out.

I think he should be asked to explain how we got 8 and Liverpool didn’t get any at all in the first 90 mins. Just the two token and meaningless ones in ET and those probably when he realised how bad it would look. I thought i would watch it again and try to count how many similar fouls by a Liverpool went uncarded but I have run out of fingers before half time :(

I was in Lincolnshire at the weekend. I was amazed how bad the standard of driving was. Now, I'm not a brilliant driver, but I know not to put my car in a place where it blocks the road in all directions, and I also know that it's normal for a car to stick to its lane rather than just drive down the middle! On the other hand, Lincolnshire was great.

The price of theatre tickets. Thought I’d look to take the family to see Stranger Things. Stall seats at £250 a pop. A f**king grand for 4 tickets? £75 even up in the gods at the back. They can feck right off!

Hopefully to draw a line under the recent unpleasant BBS episode, I have trimmed my beard.

I feel that I have slightly more hair on top of my head than covering my chin.

I trust that conforms with guidelines issued by the baldy/beardy police.

Hedgehog 13-12-2023 10:33 PM

I'm dropping by here to make an appearance as I actually have an annoyance to report.

Went into the phone company this morning in the hope of getting my wife a new phone for Christmas (She had dropped hints).

Came out without a phone, but with a change in my Internet service from DSL (phone line) to Air Internet (5G Cellular). The savings on the monthly fee were too good to not take, although I'm a bit concerned how reliable the service will be... I feel a bit of a guinea pig as they are just introducing this to our area. This is hopefully the good bit.

The annoyance is the phone. So many plans, with so many variables... seems to be effected by an 'r' in the month, a full moon, and whether you are a new customer (convert). Just sell me the f'ing phone with the cheapest plan that is not reliant on bundling, giving up 'a' to include 'b' etc, or robbing Peter to pay Paul and trade in value. Oh, and don't forget there is tax on top of that, and rebates to mail in, and introductory offers that expire in a year, and signing up for auto pay and paperless billing...

On top of this the internet in the store was crap (yeah... that's a good advert for their service!) and I had to give them my details 3 times after it dropped them out.

At the end,I just said, look I've got my internet sorted... I think I'm going to stick with the plan I have and go buy the phone from the Apple store. The guy actually agreed with me, but I walked out the store needing a stiff drink!

Rant over...

Who still buys phones from the networks?

I do. Or I did for my current one. It was a great deal. It was bought in cash, though, not a fancy phone as part of a plan.

Standard Galaxy that was about 90 quid. My monthly plan for unlimited is 10 quid a month.

My wife, on the other hand, decided to give her phone to my grandson and sign up to a network plan for a new phone. A phone and a cost she was almost immediately un happy with. Y'know, she stubbornly rallies against me when making these personal financial decisions, and they are always the wrong ones. And it is me that foots the bill.

Such is life.

People who try and associate themselves with other people's grief/bad circumstances.

For those who don't know there is a very mysterious missing person's case in Norwich right now and my social media/the local news outlets are just full of "oh my God she must have walked right past me" "I live on that street" "I once farted at those traffic lights" and blah blah blah. You don't need to personalise shit like this, be sympathetic to their family and friends absolutely but doing that just makes you look like an attention seeking t**t

The cost of Christmas, after my wife had just finished the shopping list for the Christmas shop which is over 2 full pages of A4 paper she than asked why don't we go out on Christmas eve for dinner?
I have 3 grown up children so this will cost in the region of £200, she then followed this up with the final punch in the nuts of and we still have presents to buy.
I hate Christmas.

But Europe's holiday resorts are never full, I've seen those adverts where TUI and Jet2 customers run along deserted beaches and and couples dine alone in perfect surroundings. Often your family will be the only one in a resort so I don't know how these companies ever make money?

We had someone from Anglian round a few years ago, who did the same thing - ludicrous first price which was then subject to numerous 'time-limited' discounts that brought it down to something close to reasonable; my missus chased him away with a flea in his ear, much to the amusement of the two TV engineers who were wiring up multi-room :D

Very true, I am equally astonished how the car companies are surviving; the roads are completely void of all other traffic in their adverts, even in cities.

Luckily this does not lead to an overblown expectation of freedoom for motorists who always seem so calm in traffic and appreciative of cyclists as their speed on past on their cheap, tax free, uninsured pavement hugging pedaloes

I had a particularly fertile marijuana plant once that I too named buddy.

It didn't speak but probably thought I was a **** for burning it to death bit by bit.

Well I have the torn muscle and I am half naked but I don’t think the rest has kicked in yet. Should I apply more or close my eyes and click my heels three times? :(

I find it a bit odd that my company don't feel able to call Christmas, Christmas. We've had the usual cop-out bollocks of wishing everyone enjoys the 'festive period'. It's odd as they have no problems naming any other religious festivals (I'll keep an eye out for Easter being renamed come-back Sunday).
No one gets offended so why play this stupid game?

I've already got enough black marks against my name. HR (who'd I assume are responsible) are particularly useless at giving straight answers.

Picking up your luggage at an airport.
The ***** who feel the need to all pile in right where the bags drop, saving themselves almost 30 seconds of time.

Anyone with a tribal tattoo on their shoulder/arm is a helmet.

Its useful if you are hooving under furniture such as beds or sofas as you can see if you have missed any of it - I assume you are not a great housework person? Its a bit of a gimmick but not useless.
