Throw them all in the swimming pool. Go to the pool bar and watch the faces. Ive always wanted to do this.

I did this last summer, but didn't hang around to watch I just went back to bed. After about day 3 of me shifting towels people stopped doing it. Until the new arrivals came at the start of the second week & it happened again.

We picked the beds up and moved them and replaced them with other beds, when people came and said they'd reserved the beds we just pointed at the ones we moved and said "No, you reserved THOSE beds"

In my younger days, we were on a golf trip in Majorca. We arrived back at our hotel at 4am one morning and ALL the beds had towels on them ready for the morning.

One of our crowd was a bit slow on the uptake (alcohol induced) and when one of the lads quipped we should throw them in the pool (meaning towels) he proceeded to throw every sunbed into the pool. Great fun following morning :supergrin:

Small bar and Grills/restaurants that have live music when the band almost outnumber customers.

The band feel like they have to establish a rapport with the few people, and the few people feel obliged to appear interested in the band and applaud every song.

I just want to go and have something to eat and a couple of beers with my wife... if I wanted a band included I would buy tickets to a concert.

I'm at a trampolining play area with my boy just sitting at the tables when some old woman with her granddaughter (who can't be older then 4)comes over, sits down and continues to tell her that "tomorrow you'll be in Cyprus" looking to catch someones attention (which she did) but I was as uninterested as the child going.

Very much like the "Molly Sugden" sketch in little Britain.

I thought of you when I posted that post. I have nothing against the band(s) as such, it's more the bar owners for having a band on a night they know will be slow. I guess you could argue that the owner is/or might be giving the band a chance to rehearse in public with little pressure, which is commendable, but maybe a little annoying for the patrons that are there (well me anyway).

Anyway, I like to think you only perform to larger crowds that actually want to hear you playing!

I've nothing against going to a packed bar or venue with a band, where you don't expect a personal relationship with the band or to be able to hold a decent conversation with friends or family.

Went to do the same thing Monday, went to Barclays and was asked if I had an account (which I did but closed) but the wife does(who's not with me at the time) so the assistant says it would take 30 mins with her present or an hour and a half with me.
So I left it but the wife found out through her banking app she can set up a video call to open their accounts.

I've always found the casual Rossi followers over the past decade a bit peculiar, especially in this country. But then I realised they're the sort of people who only want to interact casually with sport and only if it provides them with a high quota of victory (a la Barcelona, Brazil, Manchester City, Federer etc) And that annoys me.

I opened my Nat West account in 1971 when I left school and started a temp job just before I went to Polytechnic. I banked with them and had my mortgage with them for 40 years until my world disintegrated. Then they couldn't wait to close me down, and get a county court judgment against me by re-inventing an unsecured loan with a charge on the property just before re-possessing it. Bunch of c unts

Football clubs that shut for the summer then fail to upgrade I.T. In time for tills systems to work properly and have water pouring through the ceiling for the first game. What a shambles. Oh and give me a ******* lid for my water. If people can have 6 foot flag poles, megaphones, coins, lighters and keys, how can a lid be dangerous!

I’m sure the lid removal is to stop you having a full, sealed bottle of water that can be thrown. I full agree with you, though.

I don’t think it’s because the lid itself is dangerous!

The theory I’ve heard is that a full bottle of water secured by its lid can be a painful missile if thrown eg on fans below. Whereas if the lid is removed and then the bottle is thrown, most of the contents spill out mid air and people just get wet rather than hurt.

Whether there has ever been an incident to prove this, I don’t know.

It really annoys me too, especially when you’re in seats with so little leg room that it’s easy to kick over a bottle. It’s also a nuisance if you have kids who are trying to juggle an open bottle.

At the Spurs match the guy behind kicked his cola over, so we sat with our shoes in a sticky flood. Then a bloke walked past and spilled half the contents of his open bottle of water on me and then it snowed on us!

Yes, ridiculously over paid celebrities telling the rest of us to ‘dig deep’ and give to good causes.


Yep.... didn’t Gary Barlow ask us to donate to Children In Need a few years ago, only for it to come out a few weeks later he had signed up to a tax avoidance loophole?

I see most celebrities/footballers like the models from the film Zoolander... you know the ones that had a water fight with petrol... extremely dim... and lacking in self awareness.

Same at the O2. I always keep a spare lid handy - easy to take in in a pocket/in a sock.

Not the same at all grounds, though, which makes it even more ludicrous.

I once managed to smuggle a spare lid in, think it was the O2 or maybe Wembley, and was so disappointed when my act of rebellion failed as the lid didn’t fit! I thought the same cap fitted the same size bottle, but no. :veryangry

Weird they don't give you a lid if you buy one in the ground, as to take a drink in that you bought outside, the lid has to be on and sealed (assuming the rules are still the same this season, i didnt go on saturday).

The move to 'Urban' culture as being the mainstream way of marketing products and lifestyle.

Fully agree. I remember Mark Steel writing about this in the Independent some years ago. Bono of U2 was in Africa visiting a small village who needed a well built - he said all they need is £2k to give them clean water. The cheeky cunit was asking the general public to donate..

These so called celebs who have no talent at all except to want to fall in love in a villa only to split up before the plane hits the tarmac at gatwick.

People who get upset with celebrities asking us to give to charity.

How do you know they don't donate themselves? Are you annoyed at them not giving away all their wealth, or being rich? The celebrities concerned are certainly giving up a lot of their own time to help the causes, which does cost them money as well. And if it generates more money for the causes then to my mind its been a worthwhile use of their time, and no skin off my nose.

People do listen to the people they idolise, and if someone has fame what better use of that fame than to try to persuade other people to spend money on good causes, rather than any other old stuff.

If it seems hyprocritical... then maybe worth a rethink on what you'd do given their fame or wealth.

Jim White is currently in a ‘decompression chamber’ and should be ready to ‘go again’ next Monday.

Wankers who get on trains/tubes/DLR etc. and don't have the self-awareness or presence of mind to take off their rucksack.

SA Eagle 13-08-2019 12:28 PM

People, mainly but not exclusively women, with 'shoulder bags' so big they might just as well be rucksacks.

Stavros 69 13-08-2019 12:45 PM

Men wearing bum bags around their shoulders.
Wtf do they keep in them?!

Coastal Palace 13-08-2019 12:47 PM

The Booking.com ad.
The one with the bloke having fun racing down a winding path in his wheelchair.
I note that they don't show the 'fun' he had hauling himself back up.

The advert with the two hopeless mingers who pull in to a drive in on their way back from a trip and then state it's good to be home as if McDonalds is only available in the UK. As if you'd go eating that shit anyway. Bastards.

That our society has become so PC that everyones offended by something

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49332640

I thought the phili advert was funny and NEVER thought it encouraged steroetypes. If it had been women they would have moaned as it was then sexist.

The other one 3 people complained and it was banned. We are turning into a PC mad country.

Isle of Wight 14-08-2019 01:09 PM

Having a bad day today. I’m now pissed off at the hysteria about having women reffing the supercup final. I don’t give a monkeys if they are male, female, trans, gender neutral or an alien as long as they do a decent job.
