BBC back and f*cking forth between 1 and 2 with the Olympics.

racehorse-80s 13-08-2016 12:47 AM

Those who say they are comfortably off when they are obviously stinking rich.

Rich feckers like lord Chelsea who most likely won't pay a penny in inheritance tax due to a family trust .

Those on over 50k a year who moan about Brexit even though it won't hardly effect them other than they will have to pay more for builders and domestic's and spout on about how poor little Tristram and Annabel won't be able live and work in Tuscany etc .

Whilst it galls that Lord Chelsea gets all that cash for doing nothing, I do have a real problem with inheritance tax.
"Your old man died leaving you a pile of cash and we the government want to profit from that death. Pay up!"
That's just not right assuming income tax/corporate tax has already been paid on the pile.

When one co-worker whispers in your ear, "Don't tell anyone but I have just handed in my notice". I give them the OK and thumbs up sign and go about my business.

30 minutes later another co-worker comes up and whispers in your ear, "I hear ****** has handed in his notice".

Within 4 hours you proceed to get told 20 times that they had just heard that ***** has handed in his notice!

Basically the guy asking me to keep a secret can't keep a secret, and I come out of it looking like a gossip!

I love the people who pay extra for speedy boarding on EasyJet, all it usually means is they are about half a dozen places ahead in a long queue to get on, and have people barging past them when they frantically rush to get their bag in the overhead locker

I agree.

Change to BBC2 whilst the news is on, then back to BBC1 for a while, then back to BBC2 whilst Eastenders occupies BBC1.

For goodness sake, either put Olympics permanently on BBC2 for the evening, or have it on BBC1 and only switch for the News.

Being on holiday, start chatting to a nice couple, find out they're from Chessington in Surrey, he tells me he's a MASSIVE Man United fan, he's wife says she's gonna be a football widow for the next 10 months. The conversation rolls on, he goes to the bar... She then tells me in a hushed voice, that she has brought him tickets to a Man U home game, as it's always been a dream of his to go.

Dear Samsung,
As a result of you sponsoring NBC's online coverage of the Olympics I have seen your ******* advert over and over and over again. This incessant repetitive exposure, unavoidable if I want to watch the Olympics online, has resulted in me taking the following decision:
I will never EVER buy a ******* Galaxy ******* Note ******* 7.

You want to try watching the Olympics on Channel 7 down here. Or should I say the Australian Olympics. If there isn't an Aussie in it, they generally don't seem to bother showing it unless they've got nothing else to show. And when there is an Aussie in it, they spend the next half hour debating what the Aussie has just done, regardless of whether there may be another heat of the same thing on.

Yes they have now managed to convince everyone that the real aim is not gold but bronze or having a great time. Oddly enough in the post event interviews I have seen most competitors have been humble in victory or gracious in defeat. Media ****s everytjing up.

Yes. I'll tell you what I've also noticed this time (or rather not noticed) is that after all the "we must beat Britain" crap in the last two Olympics - especially in Beijing - that line of reporting seems to have abated thankfully. It was pathetic!

I'm so lucky. Right now on Channel 7 I can watch highlights of the Australia vs Venezuela basketball. Whereas on 7 Mate, I can watch... oh, the Australia vs Venezuela basketball. Their Olympics coverage has been nothing short of a disgrace.

Alan Pardew's "Leisure Wear" on Saturday.

There are only 2 options for managers as to what they wear on the touchline - 1) Wear a suit or 2) wear tracksuit/shorts.

On Saturday, he looked like he had just got back from a round of golf with his old muckers, Wright, Brighty and Woody.......

Nigel_Scarfer 15-08-2016 01:00 PM

Andy Woodman's car, with its personalised number plate, sitting in the car park next to Pardew's.

I know that goalkeeping coach is an important position within a club, but is it so important that he has reserved a reserved parking space next to the manager?

In the scheme of things, not something I should get annoyed about but, to be honest, everything about "Woody" winds me up.

Cyclists that insist on using the road and creating tailbacks, when there is a purpose built cycle path 6 ******* inches away.

Germans French and Aussies moaning about Brits winning. Who knew:rolleyes:
Anna Mears is past it anyway she didn't do any good against non GB riders. I wonder if the cycling team in the UK get talked up like the Ausssie swimming team do before every Olympics. Inquest on again as to why they did not win what they said. Like I said bronze is the new gold.

I'm getting heartily fed up with LinkedIn, which back in the day was a very dry but reliable business networking forum which served a purpose.

Now you can't move for trite management speak slogans like the Richard Branson one I must have seen a hundred times now - 'train people well enough that they can leave, treat them well enough that they don't want to' - with idiots making chin-stroking comments underneath.

And people who elect to post that they have bagged a top job / won sales manager of the year / been awarded an MBE, and remark underneath how 'proud and humbled' this makes them feel. Not that ******* humble, you've just boasted about it on the World Wide Web.

Couldn't agree more. Add to that recruitment agents who add you just so they can get their number of contacts up but then when you actually approach them with a CV give you radio silence.

Well said.

I like Laura Trott. Find her very down to earth. And what an athlete.

The woman on the train to Eastbourne who stood there tutting, huffing and saying loudly enough so everyone within 10 feet could hear what a disgrace it was that all the seats were taken, how selfish and inconsiderate people were for taking up seats when there were others who needed them.
1) I was on the train before you were.
2) There was nothing wrong with you.
3) Without standing up and looking down the aisle how the **** was I to know it was your mother who actually needed the seat?
If you want me to move just ask. Something along the lines of "Excuse me, my Mum isn't steady on her feet, would you mind giving up your seat for her?" would be perfectly acceptable rather than standing there effectively telling everyone what a **** I am for daring to sit down. I'm not a ******* mind reader, I haven't got 360 degree vision so I might no be aware someone needs the seat. Just ******* ask. And don't keep ******* looking daggers at me after I give my seat up and have to stand for an hour.

But, more importantly, Payroll Bellend doesn't like her accent.
