The eggs we got from our chickens were kept in the fridge, just took them out 10 minutes or so before using.

For someone who never cooks, Al seems to know a lot about it.

Laminate flooring. 3rd time I've had to put it down, now I've put skirting on aswell so if there are any issues I'll out a rug over it.

The way they clean off salmonella bacteria in America means they need to stay refrigerated shortly after the cleaning process.

I think the UK does it differently since the salmonella scare a while back, so they don't need to be refrigerated.

I'm sorry I started this now. Fwiw, I hardly ever buy eggs anyway. If mine are more than a month old, I dump them for safety reasons :supergrin:

Ideally I would need to buy 2 or 3 at a time and be done with, a bit like fags when we were at school.

Roast ****** with all the trimmings

If you are including "all the trimmings" , I would expect a choice of

Roast potatoes
new potatoes
steamed carrots
steamed cabbage
steamed cauliflower
Cauliflower cheese
parsley sauce
Mustard (English and French)
Cumberland sauce
Horseradish sauce
fried onions
stuffing
chipolatas
Brussels sprouts
peas
green beans
fried potato slices
steamed courgette slices
steamed asparagus
gravy

Restaurant owners, please think again. Unless you can get at least 9 out of 10 of the above, it is not "All the trimmings". It is just a few vegetables.

Cheers for that. I was so angry at the time, I was rambling. I'd just experienced a dire meal on Saturday, with 'all the trimmings', which was gravy potatoes peas and carrots. I even had to ask for the fecking mustard

Now I'm angry again. Hunger does that to me :D

You haven’t seen your window cleaner since November.

Eventually you crack and clean a few windows yourself, as they look awful in the Spring sunshine.

Next morning your doorbell rings and you just know who’s turned up....

mushroom 26-03-2018 10:17 AM

I was at a big roundabout and the car in front pulled out on to it... a car on the roundabout sped up just so he could slam the brakes on and make it look like the car who joined the roundabout had driven dangerously. He then flashed his headlights at her and did the international sign for a wanker.
He created a situation just so he could get angry. What a bell.

It is because after 800+ years of oppression, we tried to level things up & we think we went a wee bit too far so feel a bit guilty about it all; by inflicting Bono, Boyzone & Jedward into your earholes.

You haven't experienced the shitting with doors open. Not flushing the toilet, one after another so the the toilet is full to the seat with shit and when that happens they start shitting on the floor.

The barging straight into you as if you are invisible and when you are carrying a baby. The shocked and offended faces when you don't magically move for them when not carrying a baby.

Them blocking everywhere by the hundreds and not letting anyone through.

Every seat in the airport 'reserved' with their bags. Even doing this in airport restaurants where they have bought nothing before being told to leave.

The sitting down at your dinner table as if you weren't there even though there are plenty of empty tables then proceeding to shout to each other not talk, eat with their mouths open and push your stuff aside. Then be offended when you ask them what the **** they are doing and to leave.

Their complete disregard of any queues and just barge to the front in their hundreds.

Being pissed out their faces at 10am in the airport walking (barely able to) around the toilet room with their cock out spraying piss everywhere then leaving the toilet and everywhere covered in piss.

Giving your boss a document to review.

"Yep, that's all good, circulate it"

*sends 30 individual emails*

"I've just reviewed the document you sent and the bit at the bottom should say X, Y and Z, too"
"Why didn't you mention that when you reviewed it before?"
"I didn't really look at it in detail until now..."

And as if that isn't annoying enough, the stuff she wants me to add is misleading and irrelevant... Great.

People who just say one word for an instruction when it requires a whole sentence to put across the action. Yes you have what you want doing all in your head but other people can't read minds. For example next time you just say 'Folder' and look towards it let me know what you want doing with it? Do you want me to read it, burn it, file it away or put where your sun doesn't shine? Just a few extra words would help?

Those visits to the GP which when you leave make you think you could get better advice over the counter at the Newsagents?

To ensure you are not overcharged, especially on shelf advertised special offers or reduced items. I always check my bill - and quite often I have to go to customer services to get some money back because the 'computer', the bar code scanning or the shelf pricing is messed up.

That's one of the reasons, this goes on a lot at my local Tesco Express, so its either a computer glitch or staff not updating shelf pricing regularly.

Tesco Express/Nisa/CostCutters (an oxymoron if ever I saw one) etc., are all franchises that seem to be run according to their own arbitrary rules. Any relationship between shelf prices (should any actually exist) and till prices are purely co-incidental.

You've got it. Recently my GP kept insisting I had a certain symptom which I didn't have, all due to the online diagnoses program saying that it should be a major symptom and not having it caused confusion. The internet has a lot of crap on it medically wise that you have to disregard but I'm starting to go fully armed with more information on the specific subject than them?. Saying that I've learnt not to try to tell them as they don't seem to like it! But when you see even a basic 'dip' test done incorrectly you have to bite your lip (this then treated by googling!).

My doc was at a loss until I pointed out what I googled as a cause. Too much beer from metal casks. Oh yes she said, better cut down. I did. Problem solved. Didn't fancy the leeches. Lol.

Documentaries (or most programmes in fact) that show highlights of the forthcoming episode before you start watching it and then show you a preview of next week's show at the end. The ones with advert breaks are even worse as they also give you a synopsis of what you've just watched after each ad break. Have peoples' attention spans really dropped so far?

She might get the stuff from the abundance of local shops and markets.

Think of the daftness of that.

Chocky went into a splendid rant about that a few years back.

Here here, add in the fact Im most likely watching a recording so fast forward the adds and all of a sudden 20 minutes of actually viewing is suddenly 60, thats 40 minutes of my life wasted! Couldve got through three episodes if it wasnt so wasteful, tut.

The internet has a lot of crap on it medically wise that you have to disregard but I'm starting to go fully armed with more information on the specific subject than them?. Saying that I've learnt not to try to tell them as they don't seem to like it! But when you see even a basic 'dip' test done incorrectly you have to bite your lip (this then treated by googling!).

No they don't like that when you start saying "I don't think it's this because...but it might be this because....." you get the silent treatment and a funny look.

The new tranche of BBSers who have brought that shit habit from Faceache of not reading a thread fully and then commenting on something that has already been dismissed as false earlier on.

Here comes the first part right now: TL; We will now be going for a short commercial break after which we will see how this combines with DR to form the satire.

Welcome back. Before the break we saw how Little Fozzie was developing a satirical take on our inability to focus on anything for more than 5 seconds by the use of the urban slang abbreviation TL;DR. We have already seen the first part of that and here it is again to remind you: TL. Now we are about to see how it will be combined with the DR to give us a breathtaking and chuckle-inducing finale.TL;DR. And there it is, wasnt that great. We will now be going for a short commercial break.

Welcome back. Before the break we saw how Little Fozzie combined the abbreviations TL and DR with the use of a semi-colon to great effect to lampoon our inability to focus on anything for more than 5 seconds. For those not familiar with urban slang, that means Too Long Didnt Read and therefore you can see what a great choice that was. But just in case you didnt, were now going to hear from a load of C-list celebrities on how they thought this was a really great use use the term TL;DR broadcast live from their zanily decorated bedsits.

Tune in next week for a great use of the abbreviation STFU by our resident poet Maidstoned Eagle.

Queuing at the self service till for five minutes to avoid having to pay the horny till assistant for haemorrhoid cream to be met with an unusually loud Unexpected item in bagging area announcement that draws more attention to the haemorrhoid cream than if I was wearing a ******* A-board saying I've got piles. Definitely done on purpose by whoever programs the fuc*in thing. C*nts. :supergrin:

Should used it as your chat up line with the horny till assistant. When she glances up at you rather embarrassed as she scans the cream through...something as classy as ...

Dont fancy rubbing it in for me do ya ?

Others will doubtless come up with better ones....

I live in the hope that one day an animal will revert to its feral state and commit carnage amongst the congregation.

I was chatting to a wedding photographer and he told me about one he did where our very own Kayla was hired to fly into the church with the rings tied to her leg. Unfortunately after an immaculate glide down the length of the church she spotted the big brass lectern, which was in the shape of an eagle, got spooked and flew off again!

Chocolate shrinkage. Pack of 4 twix. The two bars now make up the length of one old twix single bar. Thieving bastards

I love Twix, but it's always a bit of a crap shoot when I get one, as they inevitably end up being stale or had melted at some time and re-solidified which makes a mess.

It makes getting a good one even more enjoyable.

They seem really susceptible to bad shop-keeping or vending machine management which is an annoyance unto itself.
