That god awful woman commentator on BBC Radio London last night. Political correctness gone mad. Who in their right mind gave her that job ?

This, 100%. Shops and offices are the same.

Women looking at each other quizzically "Do you feel cold?! Isn't it cold in here!?"

Going into a restaurant that is 3/4 empty and being told sorry we are fully booked.

Fare zone 6 being stuck at the end of every sign on Purley Station platforms so that every dick (myself included first time around)think they are on platform 6. Whoever decided to do that deserves to be slapped hard around the face. Repeatedly.

If you are going to watch it then do it from the angle of enjoying the sight of people turning up with something they think will be valued for a lot of money but are then told it's worth sweet FA and their look of disbelief. It gives the program new depth

"No worries", ever since I read this a few pages back I've realised how much I do this at work. So now i'm annoying myself which is even more irritating as usually I think i'm great.

Halloween is a custom dating back to the days of paganism and the Celts. It was us who took it to America. Still, I'm happy to join your annoyance.

Probably should be in the "over rated" thread, too. Average at the very best and a reflection of celebrity over talent. I liken her songs to a child trying to make up songs to a random tune.

While not being in any way religious I agree with your brother and sister in law. Any restaurant that has some wanky pretentious name for its' menu should be shunned - it's a ******* menu, I know it's a menu, they know it's a menu, just ******* call it a menu.

Oddly enough we had a geezer come round tonight to quote for a blind for our lounge window. It's a decent size - a square bay if you like - 3 window centre and one at each side. 79 inc fitting. Thought was very reasonable. He's done some others for us and they're decent quality.

I bought a job lot of 'sunwood' ones from a 4 bed house with conservatory in coventry, 2 years old, for 200 quid. Managed to do most of the front of the house today, just had to piss around shortening them and dealing with some lintel in the recess above the bedroom windows. Should have enough big ones left over to do the flat as well if i can chuck them on the back of a herc :) Probably a false economy though as will be on it again all day tomorrow :(

BBC America is such a crap channel considering the back catalogue the BBC have and could show.
Does anyone watch it anyway? How many times can you see Top Gear and Star Trek NG repeats?

People who buy boxes of shitty little cards and sit there systematically writing out card after card after card after card to people they see every f*cking day of their lives in a pub etc. Seriously what is the f*cking point?? Send a card to someone in Australia yes I can see the point, that was the point in the first place. But to write out a small crap card from me to you to someone you don't give a shit about. It's women that do this.

Salad_Burnet 03-11-2015 08:51 PM

I hate Christmas cards which are over-familar, because the sender wants to convey meaning and sincerity.

It gives me the creeps. Christmas card giving is a numbers game, in the same way that christmas presents are measured by volume; quality or meaning shouldn't really come into it.
