I wouldn't worry about those - the club will be able to sort replacements.

People who do their weekly shop in the petrol station with their dog on a lead,when they get to the till and then decides that she needs a different type of carrier bag to carry the goods home as she cant carry one particular bag with the dog.Then she says she has forgotten something and walks to the back of shop to pick up one more item while 5 people are in the queue behind her including me with all my motorbike gear on

I had this the other day. Some div had bought but not paid for a bottle of plonk in Lidl and asked the till girl if she had anything to open it with. She didn't so he went back to change it for a screwtop taking ages to not find something that they don't sell. Meanwhile 5 or 6 people waiting in the queue. Tosser.

People who think "they", "them" and "theirs" are usable as singular pronouns of neuter or mixed gender. Comes from a basic misunderstanding of the difference between grammatical gender and natural gender, together with a sheeplike acquiescence to the politically correct lunacy that is taking over the planet.

If you really want to rip my knitting use "themself". There's no such word FFS.

Now I see that some talentless wannabe celebrity is trying to get attention by making everyone refer to him (or her) by means of plural pronouns because of his complicated gender identity. Well yes but there's still only one of you. The only person who can refer to himself or herself with a plural pronoun is the Queen. For entirely different reasons.

Meaning of themself in English:

themself - pronoun

used when the subject of the verb is "they" used as a singular pronoun, or a single person who could be any sex, and the object is the same person:

It's all about letting someone be themself.

I know it appears in various dictionaries. Dictionaries are not manuals of good usage. The answer though is right there in the definition: "Used when the subject of the verb is 'they' used as a singular pronoun". The presence of a word in a dictionary does not imply that a particular usage of it is good, or that there even exists a good usage for it. It merely means that people use it with the meaning given. "Transportation" appears in dictionaries too but it is a horrible word that 90% of the time is used when "transport" will do fine.

"They" can't be used as a singular pronoun because it only agrees with plural nouns. People do use it but it feels to me so ugly, so contrived, so jarring as to make my teeth jangle. It's come about as a result of people not understanding their own language's grammar properly (partly because in English grammatical gender and natural gender usually coincide, although they do not always) and if it becomes part of the normal grammar, as it probably will, this and similar changes will in particular have the effect of making the language - a worldwide lingua franca, of course - harder to learn and use, not easier.

The sentence given as an example is ungrammatical. Fowler proscribes the usage and so does the Complete Plain Words (2014 edition). A singular "themself" was in use from 1400 down to about 1570 but this was considered the real plural version at the time and used to refer to plural nouns.

Never mind domestic goods. The stickers on the sun-shades of new cars are, unless someone knows any better, impossible to remove without leaving an unsightly mark.

On a smaller scale, we had something similar happen in our child’s last year at junior school.

We won a Croydon final and within minutes of it ending our P.E. coach told the teachers of the losing school that they could take our place in the national final because our school wasn’t available. So our kids were watching their opponents celebrating!

Totally ridiculous, as she hadn’t even asked the parents about our availability. Whilst it was true that the event was after our school broke up for the summer, she didn’t ask anyone. Afterwards us parents were chatting in the car park and it soon became clear that enough of us would have been free and willing to drive the kids there ourselves if the school couldn’t provide transport.

And then the truth came out, her own child was in an event elsewhere on that day. Again, I’ve no problem with that and I’m sure another teacher could have been asked, and supported by us parents.

Like you, our main issue was that she didn’t even seek a Plan B solution in the event that we won through.

I remember playing against Ashburton in a Surrey cup game. We lost in what seemed like the longest period of extra time I've ever known. None other than Simon Osborn scored the winner with the last kick of the game and we all slumped to the turf disconsolate.

Afterwards our team coach who was refereeing said I'm quite pleased they got the winner as the replay date would have clashed with an important meeting of mine. We all just looked at him on disbelief too exhausted to say anything.
Basically the f*cker had played on until they scored. :supergrin:

Food items that are ridiculously over labelled as extra spicy or extremely hot that turn out to be anything but.

I bought a bag of chicken strips from iceland where the packaging wouldn't have looked out of place in Chernobyl, there were bio hazard warning signs and the pack was in yellow and red but got them home cooked them up and was merely nothing in spice compared to a chicken shop spicy wing or zinger burger.

Really quite disappointed with that really although I hear morrisons do some sort of naga chilli curry so might have to give that a go.

I think some teachers who take part in the same events year after year get in a mindset of thereís always next year.

Thing is, in most cases there isnít another year for the kids/parents involved. This is our one chance and weíll go the extra mile to support it.

The junior school had some previous for this. I remember the boys team not being submitted for a prestigious day long tournament because the girls P.E. coach had already booked the minibus. Again, no effort made to ask if parents would be willing to transport the boys themselves, which we would have done.

Thankfully Iíve found our senior school much better. I do wonder whether junior schools get more nervous about the child protection guidelines about parents transporting the kids of other families, and they canít be arsed to take the measures they could to mitigate any potential issues.

I've just emailed my youngest's head to give her shit about the treatment of the Year 9 basketball team. Against all the odds - very few boys on the school roll, given no time for training, PE teacher leaving so no coach, they won the Borough shield, beating a bunch of far better resourced schools. You'd think they would make a big deal of this. Nothing in the school newsletter, no story and picture sent to the local paper, and no shield presented to them at the end of term awards event. Wankers. The kids deserved a pat on the back.

This was year 10. To make matters worse we also found out some of the lads who progressed through the next stages where grabbed by a number of clubs for when they turned 16. Talk about a school ******* up opportunities for lads. Even if it was just One think about the kudos the school would have got.

Only kidding, mate.

Er? It's boys basketball

I bought a bag of chicken strips from iceland where the packaging wouldn't have looked out of place in Chernobyl, there were bio hazard warning signs and the pack was in yellow and red but got them home cooked them up and was merely nothing in spice compared to a chicken shop spicy wing or zinger burger.

Really quite disappointed with that really although I hear morrisons do some sort of naga chilli curry so might have to give that a go.

I've tried a couple of Morrisons currys and they were certainly not shy when they added the spices/chilli. I dont think you'll be disappointed if they do something like a naga. [emoji26] [emoji26] [emoji26]

Morrisons sell a vindaloo and a phall which are the hottest supermarket curries I've ever tasted. I actually couldn't quite finish the phall, the only supermarket curry that's ever done that. The Vindaloo isn't my favourite flavour, quite bitter, but also ridiculously hot.

The health warnings on these are definitely not for show.

Stop press: I see that they launched the vindaloo and some smart-arse wrote to them and told them it wasn't hot enough so they made the phall which is worse. Yes, it's hotter than the vindaloo.

There seems to be a new generation of dog owner who don’t even walk their pet outside anymore, instead trying to keep it permanently indoors as some sort of domestic trinket. And thus driving the animal (and the neighbours) to insanity. Seems to mostly be these little shit-rat handbag-size mongrel-fox things.

Yep we have 2 next door. One is a chug the other just chiwowa.

Both useless pointless animals that bark permanently.

Pub Idol 15-09-2019 09:07 PM

That said. We seem to have a resurgence in dog shit not being picked up down our road/s. Anyone else notice this getting worse? It's proper wrank just like it was back in the 80's.

Used to have phall quite a few years ago and although finishable it wasn't in one sitting (take a break then carry on) then wondered why I was torturing my mouth rather then taking in the flavours.
But every now and then I like to test my resolve again.

Had a nice curry the other night and the bloke next to me in the restaurant was sweating buckets whilst tucking in.

At the end of the evening he looked in real distress. Ended up giving the owners a massive tip and said he thoroughly enjoyed it !

A mate of mine didn't have very nice parents so left home when he was 16.
He rented a flat above an Indian restaurant and instead of cooking for himself, he used to have dinner at this restaurant every night after work.
He loved spicy hot food so had a phaal every night.
In the end, the manager told the waiters not to serve him as they feared for his stomach lining.
He still eats this crap to this day though.

It's a long time since a phall. I've seen sense now but l can still remember the morning after. The two cheeks of my bottom felt like they were about two foot apart!! Give me subtle spice now days over heat.

Totally ridiculous, as she hadnít even asked the parents about our availability. Whilst it was true that the event was after our school broke up for the summer, she didnít ask anyone. Afterwards us parents were chatting in the car park and it soon became clear that enough of us would have been free and willing to drive the kids there ourselves if the school couldnít provide transport.

And then the truth came out, her own child was in an event elsewhere on that day. Again, Iíve no problem with that and Iím sure another teacher could have been asked, and supported by us parents.

Like you, our main issue was that she didnít even seek a Plan B solution in the event that we won through.

Wow, what a selfish bitch, I would've been furious with her.

Indeed. Looking back it’s astonishing that she didn’t email us parents in advance of the match to determine availability for the next round should we win that Croydon final.

Us parents didn’t think to ask, as we didn’t know there was a national final. So we didn’t know she’d given away our place to the opposition until after she’d done it.

We were about to leave for senior school, so didn’t kick up a fuss as it simply reinforced our opinion that we wanted to move on.

Shit musicians in holiday resorts sounding no better than a tone deaf karaoke singer.

Which holiday resorts? I want to stay away from those.

Wireless f*cking headphones that despite being in another room connect themselves to your phone so that when you try and take an important voice call it's a total f*ck up.

I went for a walk with the missus around Farnobourgh and someone had out the turd in a bag but then left on a bench. Thanks for that.

Happens everywhere. London streets littered with little black bags. If you're lucky, the considerate ones leave the gift in your bin. Too many f*cking dogs and Dickhead dog owners.

And while I'm at it, what is it with dog and cat owners referring to themselves as mummy or daddy? That's just weird.

Sharkba1t 16-09-2019 05:56 PM

It's never the dogs - only the owners.
