How Nurses get treated as modern day angels.
My Mrs works for the NHS, and the amount of sickness is astounding. She was working one night and a nurse got sent home because she was worried about her husband who broke his finger... I kid you not!!!
If I said to my employers, my wife had broke her finger can I go home, they'd laugh at me.
My friend works for the Civil Service, he tells me it's almost impossible to get sacked... they just move you!
My daughters Teacher, always sick... any snow and she won't turn up (she walks to work), a few years ago I drove 20 miles to work at 3am through snow on untreated roads, only to get a text at 8am to say Teacher hadn't turned up... She refused to walk in case she may slip... although she sent her son to school that day!

Moving out of my seat for other Palace fans who are normally carrying chips with large amounts of tomato ketchup and not getting even a nod or a thanks!
Or the two twats that moved out of their seat 5 times before halftime.... Too much drink boys!

I was going to say Jimmy Bullard. The funny bloke in the pub who ends up getting on your tits because he won't stop being 'whacky'. Like on Soccer AM. Shut the f*ck up. Also anyone with a ponytail these days (ever?) is a prick. And he dresses like a tramp.

But then....I was watching his interview on London Live with that big black West Ham hooligan Cass bloke, and he said live on air "no c*nt comes on here and swears".

this keeps coming up on this thread, but it is a hundred times more annoying when trying to get onto a crowded train and you can see through the window that there is plenty of space to move down into but people aren't bothering.

Ok cool, I'll get the next train in 20 minutes instead and be late for work just so you can have a bit of room to read your newspaper, thats cool. Twunt.

Following on from the tube related posts - people who board tube trains with those fold up bikes. Apparently, they're handy as they don't take up much room & are easy to store - when in reality, Kerry Katona would take up less space.

Here's an idea - why don't you unfold your overpriced, poxy lump of metal & cycle to your destination rather than impeding everybody else?

My missus.

She airs the children's towels on a clotheshorse type thing, possibly called a clotheshorse. They dry and she puts them on the back of the bathroom door, ready for the evening baths. The towels are very long and touch the bathroom floor.

One afternoon I was working from home and she appeared at the door with a towel in her hand and said she was really worried we had a leak somewhere because recently, when she'd gone to use the towels at bath-time, and sometimes they were already wet at the bottom. We'd had a problem with a drip from the toilet which had managed to find its way through the floor and come through the kitchen ceiling, so I immediately thought we had a severe issue. She'd looked everywhere but couldn't find a leak so we thought we'd leave it and monitor the situation.

I couldn't sleep for the worry and just before dawn it dawned on me - it's a towel FFS. I use it to dry my hands on. And it only happens every now and then because I don't work at home all the time.

Now I'm in trouble for incorrect use of towels. I've annoyed me as well for not thinking of it sooner.

Getting sold a ten euro 'so easy' phonecard instead of an mtn one like i asked for, then having to listen to the dozy assistant tell me she can't exchange it as 'i might have used it'. What, in the 10 seconds between walking out of the shop and walking back in having realised the dozy bint has sold me the wrong one?

Now regretting my principled stance to 'never use this shop again' as its an extra 200 metres to the next shop.

Upon asking for fish and chips please in a hotel, sitting down and then being presented with the fish and small dish of sauce on something that can only be described as a wooden chopping board that has seen better days. The chips came in a metal bucket that would be more appropriate hanging up with a plant in it. Have they run out of plates?

Maybe I should up the value of my hotels.

This. And I would also add the increasing habit of being served approximately 5 chunky chips neatly stacked up with your meal and guaranteed to leave you hungry

Peoplee who take non-folding bikes on commuter trains
Why don't they just cycle to whereever it is this wish to get to, instead of taking up the room of four people on busy commuter trains home?
If they only want to cycle from the station to their houses, they should leave their bikes chained at the station.
If they only want to cycle in Central London to avoid using the tube, they should use Boris Bikes instead.

People who take folding bikes on commuter trains are almost as bad. They seem to think because their bike folds up this makes them perfectly acceptable. No it doesn't. It just means they are marginally less irritating.

Yup and some people with non folding bikes just go ahead and block the doors and go and sit halfway down the carriage with no intention of moving the thing until they wish to get off either

Agree,that is sometimes the case but it still doesn't make it right.The tossers that really get my goat are the ones who do it when all 3 lanes are busy, cutting in and out. We all want to get to were we are going to but what gives these inconsiderate, and dangerous, divs the right to break the rules.

If you have five and six lane highways and are taught to drive with this undertaking as norm then ok, but not on UK roads were its not.

It's simple. You just stay in your lane until you need to exit or you can go faster in the other lanes. It would work easily on the M25.

It's illegal in the UK and the new Smart technology on the M25 and other motorways will probably catch you, fine you and ban you within a few miles.

People who go on to other team's forums and their opening post is something along the lines of:

Hey! [Insert team name] fan in peace! Just thought I'd pop along to your forum ahead of our clash on Saturday. Really looking forward to the game and with both teams in good form I'm expecting lots of goals. I've really been impressed by your left winger this season and think he could cause us problems, but I think your right back is a weak link and I think our lads will look to exploit that. I look forward to hearing the famous Palace away support and I think it will be a great atmosphere from both fans! I will be in wetherspoons before the game if anyone fancies a cheeky pint and a bit of banter lol!!

If people can undertake it's because the slower driver is in an overtaking lane and going at a slower pace than the lane to their left, therefore they are going too slow regardless of how fast the other driver wants to go.

Weaving however is another argument altogether but there is nothing worse than a slow driver plodding along in an overtaking lane.

A small annoyance that now has entered my head I have noticed everyone doing it.

When going to cross a road they duck down the road 2 yards and go across and then walking 2 yards again to get back on a straight path. Seems everybody does it.

Do you actually mean a slow driver, as in someone doing 40 in a 70, or do you mean someone not breaking the speed limit like everyone else?

Nope. Its idiots who don't know to move left when they can, and think just because they are doing the same speed as the guy in front of them then nobody could possibly want to pass.

That and rain.

Look, speed limit or not is irrelevant. If you can move over to the left you should. End of.

I mean somebody who is in the outside lane but not overtaking people on the inside lane irrespective of speed.

It's strange and just odd that undertaking is not allowed on UK motorways. If US drivers can do it safely I see no reason why British drivers cant.
Turning right on a red light (would be left in the UK) is another US thing that the UK would benefit from.

Years ago I once got in the rear passenger door of a car that had done this me, said "hello" to the driver, shuffled across the back seat and let myself out of the opposite door so I could cross the road. I was quite pissed at the time.

Pedestrians who walk too slowly.

Why can't they simply move over to the left? It is particularly inconsiderate to the skateboarders, roller-skaters and pushbikers who need to travel faster.

People who call other BBS members trolls because they lack the wherewithal to construct their debate properly.

After living in the US for 30+ years and doing this, I find in insane trying to drive on a motorway in The UK. It does my head in.

What do you so in slow moving traffic (light traffic jam)?

I bet you wouldn't do that in south side LA.

You pass on the left. There's allowance for that.

I came to this thread because something really really annoyed me yesterday and now I can't remember what it was.
