Tv show directors who film scenes in no or very low lighting - we all have flat screen TVs nowadays and don’t sit in the dark to watch a show (or never watch your show in the daytime) so all we can see is the room reflection on your no doubt excellently well directed scenes.

I would add mumbling speech, or background effect music too loud so you can't understand what the actors are saying, despite me having a sound bar and turned up bloody loud and my hearing aids in and turned up to full volume.

Drives me crazy. TBH it can be even worse on a projector which have some advantages but low light scenes isn't one of them. Watched the Courier (an excellent movie) but some of the key scenes are hard work because you can barely make them out. It's easier on a TV.

Also agree with Hedgehog's comments re mumbled dialogue and over-loud backing music. I still have pretty good hearing but there are many TV series these days that are littered by one of the people in the room saying what did he/she say due to some poorly mixed (levels) audio track.

I thought mumbling incoherence was meant to be 'arty'? The words are probably irrelevant - it's the mood what does it.

Totally agree - Brian Cox's "Universe" being a case in point.
I'm a sucker for any space subject documentary, and by far the most important elements of such are the commentary and the images. Instead you got this continual soaring "majestic" music which totally obscured what he was saying. I had to put the sub-titles on. I don't know what the director/producers were thinking.

A few years back when on a trip to England I rented a car and turned on what I thought was the rear window defroster (we don't have rear fog light here).

I stopped at a traffic light and a guy pulls up beside he and indicates to open my window... he proceeds to give me a verbal dressing down along the lines of, "Turn your ******* fog light off"... news to me it was on, but figured it out.

No, although I did have another encounter with a guy on a bike.

I was going to be doing a right turn into a garden center, and wasn't sure where the entrance was, so had my right turn indicator on, and was sort of slowing down looking for the entrance.

Guy on a rice rocket pulls up on along side me my left side and shouts, "turn if you are ******* going to"!

Seemed a bit out of order to me... pretty sure he wanted to haul arse past me on the right but was afraid I would turn right in front of him. I told myself it was his problem, no mine.

Additional wanker points for an abundance of illegal fully tinted windscreen and driver/passengers side windows, plus no license plate on the front (also illegal).

Oh Great One, Swift fleet footed herald of the gods,
You who are the son of the great Zeus and the blessed nymph Maia,
Smiling Lord of shepherds and merchants,

Master of travel, roads seen and unseen,
You who ushers the living after death into the realm of Hades,
Lord of time and space between the worlds,
We call you!


Most cunning and shrewd among the immortals,
God of balanced energies and esoteric magics,
Walker among the dreams of mortals,
We call to you!

Come to you at this time of magic,
When life is at its peak and death has waned,
We make offerings to you and ask that you be with us now!

Maybe his wife wanted a neatly trimmed bush for Christmas?

Googling contact HRMC for a contact number and having adverts looking like HMRC that you use to Connect you with Tiny writing saying it will cost £3.60 A MINUTE to connect when the direct number is a couple of adds down. Fking scam artists must sucker loads as there is so many of them

Just an addition to that but similar scam where advertisers charge a higher cost to help renew licences or obtain services. Came across that when looking at passport renewal.

People at th supermarket tills, especially this time of year, who cannot be arsed to place their items into the conveyor belt efficiently and with consideration for the person behind them, instead chucking stuff on willy-nilly with huge gaps in between so that they leave no room for the next person to work with.

I cannot understand the mentality of people like that who clearly just could not give a **** about anybody else.

I do it deliberately. It buys extra time in the bagging area and avoids people behind having to wait while I pack.

I can understand how immigrants to this country feel that they are not represented by TV radio and advertising to such an extent that the reverse has now happened.

This has resulted in one particular person pronouncing artist without using the middle T, I speak less than perfect English myself but for some daft reason I find this annoying beyond common sense!!!!!!!

Mine all involve shop/ cafe doors.
People , who for some reason, grind to a halt in a doorway, usually you have to say” excuse me, please” a few times to budge them.
Born in a barn merchants who leave doors open when entering shops

I had the same problem here when looking for some sample driving test questions. I had Googled DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) and got many hits mostly from sites that were either DMV.com or DMV.net or some variable on that theme. The official one is DMV.gov.

Like you, all the "unofficial" ones wanted money to buy there sample tests, and looked very official. Would be very easy to fall for their tricks.

YouTube has decided that I’m a Man Utd fan. Most of my recommended videos are about Roy Keane, Ronaldo, Rednose and Man Utd

Not even from Palace's club shop!

To add to the annoyance... the part arrived today and it's the wrong part.

Not sure if the part number I was given was wrong or the wrong part was pulled off the shelf to ship.

I fully understand your pain. My neighbour to my right is constantly outside fixing lawnmowers , revving them up etc. He loves a jet hose too. To my left the neighbour is continually doing DIY. He pisses me off more because he will start drilling at 8 pm on a Sunday night.
He built a garden shed this year, started in May and finished in Sept. every fking day and evening we heard some sort of machinery going. One Sunday afternoon at about 4 pm my missus asked him to stop. He didn’t reply to her, just threw his drill down and stormed off in to his house.

That must be one heck of a big shed!!

How about those bellends who’ve got a patch of grass the size of a postage stamp, yet they’ve got a bloody great big noisy petrol mower?? I bet when the whole world has got an electric car or lorry in the future, my sad arse neighbour will still be using his petrol mower!!:wallbash:
