Why can't your kids just go to a friends house to play now. Why does it have to be called a sodding play date.

I will add myself to that list.

'onto the street'

Unless you saw the person hanging out a house or car window or door to ease tehir nasal passages.

Fecking disgusting blowing your nose onto the street.

****wits like Patriotic alternative spamming Palace Twitter. Literally in the same few weeks when Wilf and Paddy have been getting racist abuse. Some plank and supposed Palace fan is plastering their bullshit on the Palace feed. Our team is mixed, the fanbase is mixed. Yet this moron would have large parts of the team and fanbase removed from the UK due to not being white and apparently not British. Wish I could remove them and all the other extremists.

I remember it was a 'thing' all the kids started doing at football, I guess they were copying the professionals on MotD or whatever. I decided I fancied a go, everyone else's was like a neat little snot bullet, mine was a ******* mess. Never did it again.

I can't hear grasshoppers or crickets any more. Obviously an age thing, but I didn't know until we were on holiday in the Peak District during the heatwave.

* Probably 'an age thing too'.

Fatboy 18-08-2020 09:54 PM

The **** in his white van that at the Asda petrol station in Beddington reversed at speed into my daughters car when she was queuing for petrol.

He didn't check his mirrors and didn't hear her horn as he had i-pods on. From the damage, I was surprised he didn't set the car's air bags off.

God help if there had been a person there behind instead.

Isn't their some sort of buzzing device used by business owners, who have a problem with rowdy teens congregating outside their premises. It annoys the hell out of them and more often than not they move on. A person over 25 would not be able to hear it.

Gambling ad on telly with a woman tryin to guess red or black on a round rack of dresses in a shop. Then a guy trying to stop his Petrol pump on exactly the round amount. Then a guy repeatedly saying ‘hit me’ to a guy adding layers to his sandwich, as if playing blackjack.

Apart from being a shit ad, is this behaviour not basically indicative of a serious gambling problem?

It’s the pedestrian’s right of way the moment he puts one foot on the crossing. Failure to do so is 3 points. Do drivers who expect to be thanked by pedestrians also thank other drivers when those other drivers stop at red lights at a crossroad?

Pedestrian also has a responsibility to ensure it is safe to cross, before stepping out

Just putting your foot on the crossing when a car is close does not make the car disappear, despite what many pedestrians appear to think

Terrace Bickle 20-08-2020 09:32 AM

I'm getting really upset with the **** you selfish attitude of a good percentage of the population.
Things seemed to have deteriorated since lockdown. I hadn't really noticed until we were lucky enough to go away and I witnessed so much littering, fly-tipping and damage in the countryside. There were dog-pooh bags discarded everywhere. We even saw one a cretin had left one on a picnic table. I just don't get the mentality of people who do this.

Also people's driving was something else. Whether it be lack of practice, after the restrictions, I don't know. I'm used to be prepared to take evasive action on long motorway journeys, but if I hadn't been alert we'd have been taken out twice on the journey home.

So does any driver in any circumstance. You cannot just cross a crossroad on green. You need to ensure it is safe to proceed. So again, do you thank the other drivers who stopped at the red light. No you donít because it would be crazy.

Always embarrassing when you drive through a temporary traffic light and forgetfully thank the driver that has pulled over to let you go.

It’s definitely not that, because people don’t do it in equivalent situations. Pedestrians are expected to thank motor vehicles for interrupting their journey, but drivers are not expected to thank other drivers for interrupting their journey.

It’s about pedestrians being second class even when they are not.

Drivers are expected to thank other drivers for interrupting their journey via a flash of hazards, a nod or a wave.

But I get your point re zebra crossings. Itís a bit like the temporary traffic light gesture :). You are thanking someone for obeying the law.

Not really, because it is only occasional circumstances where that happens. You let someone out when it is your right of way and there usually a gesture or courtesy. But when it is required there almost always isnít.

Maz 20-08-2020 09:47 AM

You're missing the point completely.

Whilst a driver is required to stop for pedestrians on a crossing, it remains a fact that many do not, whether deliberately or not.

So acknowledging the fact that they have done so - even if in law they had no choice - is an easy and a polite courtesy. To not acknowledge it is just boorish.

Yep. See my edit. You thank someone when they do something that is not required of them generally.

Perhaps it is a hangover courtesy from when we didnít have zebra crossings and a requirement to stop. You learn such courtesies as a child and never really question them.

There are not many other circumstances that you thank people for obeying the law and for not trying to kill you.

Many drivers ignore red lights. I donít thank the ones that donít.

It is polite to acknowledge anyone who has made a deliberate decision to stop or given way, allowing you to proceed. On the road, on foot, it doesn't matter,

They’ve made a deliberate decision to stop, so why not?

El Aguila 20-08-2020 10:08 AM

Intellectually, I'm with Addled on this one. Temperamentally, I have to admit I'm with the petrolheads. I go out of my way to be courteous to other road users, especially car drivers, who rarely seem as if they're enjoying it. If I can spread a little joy and light, I like to.

I say pedestrians are treated as second hand road users.

You respond by omitting that sentence from the post you quote and then essentially say pedestrians should be grateful to users who donít ignore them because so many do.

Whilst saying I am missing the point.

I was always told to thank the crossing lady when she stopped the traffic so that I could get to school. According to your logic, I should not have done so, since she was obliged to stop the traffic, that being her job.

And now that I am a driver, I note that these crossing ladies (rarer than they used to be, of course) also thank the traffic for stopping, although they are not obliged to do so.

Not all gestures of politeness are decided by matters of law.

It is a waiter’s job to serve me food. I still say thank you.

I also usually speed up my pace ever so slightly if a driver stops for me at a pedestrian crossing.

stevek 20-08-2020 10:34 AM

I have no problem with thanking a driver for stopping at a pedestrian crossing. However, I do think Adlerhorst is raising a valid point. The discussions do show how we have developed our environment - and our attitudes - into prioritising motorised vehicles above human beings.

Bicycles are even worse than human beings.

Well, apart from the fact that pedestrians are given priority at zebra crossings (amongst other similar examples).

Martin H 20-08-2020 10:44 AM

Without undermining the valid points above, isn't it all a bit sad that polite acknowledgement/respect for others isnít considered the norm?

I would always try to acknowledge the driver stopping at a crossing and/or someone giving me right of way (even though they Ďshouldí ) but that was instilled in me many moons ago. I donít calculate it in some miserly way. Thatís not because I am good/better and TBH probably has more to do with my parents than me. Canít we all be Ďniceí in Ďreal lifeí.

If you get to a narrow lane, would you not thank a fellow cyclist for letting you through, if he stops?

I always make a point of looking the driver in the eyes just before crossing, to psyche them into stopping.

A respectful wave of acknowledgement is a sign of weakness?:confused: The sign of weakness is in the person who shows no positive emotion, just goes around acting hard, so others think he aint weak. I bet if a driver didn't stop, you'd soon be waving your middle finger at the fleeing car as it would make you look 'well 'ard."

Followed the day after by a coming together of the wonderful BBS who form a half page R.I.P thread.
"Despite not always agreeing with him, I always liked Adlers."
"No age at all."
" i already thought he was dead."
"Condolences to his liked ones."
" From all the mods. Always sad when one of our own passes."
"It's threads like this that makes the BBS the great institution it is."
A sad day for the Palace family.
A :jerkit: from SC
"Will be sorely missed on the "Count to a Million thread in Chit Chat Gold."
and finally a request from Maidstoned on information regarding applications for Adlers Mod job.


The following day while his body is still warm a thread will be started by WCB
asking readers to name 10 things that made Adlers a crappy Moderator. Within days the thread overtakes the Corona Virus in posts and blows up the BBS.

By the way Adlers I'm only kidding :p

" i already thought he was dead."
"Condolences to his liked ones."
" From all the mods. Always sad when one of our own passes."
"It's threads like this that makes the BBS the great institution it is."
A sad day for the Palace family.
A :jerkit: from SC
"Will be sorely missed on the "Count to a Million thread in Chit Chat Gold."
and finally a request from Maidstoned on information regarding applications for Adlers Mod job.


The following day while his body is still warm a thread will be started by WCB
asking readers to name 10 things that made Adlers a crappy Moderator. Within days the thread overtakes the Corona Virus in posts and blows up the BBS.

By the way Adlers I'm only kidding :p

A day after?????


Crikey mate, more like within the hour, this is the BBS not BBC :)

Funny enough on my way home at a crossing I stopped, as did a car to let me cross and I gave them a finger up as a thank you. The cyclist then turned around to me and said ďdonít say thanks for meĒ and cycled off.

One more example that cyclists are wankers.

I don’t often start new threads but Aldershot is being rather M~zesque here.

I've lived here in the land of "Goddamn" for 39 years, and even I don't say it...

BTW, should it be a capital "G"? I guess it comes down to your point of view.

Flies, wasps, bees, daddy long legs....why the f*** do they come into your house in the first place when they spend the whole time desperately trying to find a way back out?!

Fed up of the amount I’ve had to escort and coerce out of an open window they’ve spent the last hour smashing their heads up against.

Idiots, the lot of them.

Yeah and moths if they're so keen on light why don't they just come out during the day and bask in it? idiots.

My Dad's house is overrun with daddy long legs I'm constantly cupping them up and lobbing them out the window, someone told me they can't survive outdoors, dunno if that's true but I feel like I'm at least giving them a chance to relocate.

I presume it isn't an issue on the wide private boulevards where your chauffeur drives you, but down here in the side roads of suburbia, lines of parked cars either side mean that it's usually impossible for two cars to pass simultaneously. It is normal courtesy to thank a driver who has given way to allow you to proceed, irrespective of the Highway Code's niceties.

Golf bloggers on Youtube who edit their blogs and are still rubbish yet are getting sponsored by golf companies as they are celebrities in the loosest sense of the word.

For the very same reason that some people think itís a good idea to climb Mount Snowden in flip-flops and a T-shirt. There are always idiots whether thatís in the insect or the human world.

And when you open a door or a window to let one out, another one will come in...

As an aside, last week twice a fly ended up in the glass of water I keep by the bedside... no fun when you want a sip of water in the night and it contains something solid!

And why do spiders/daddy long legs appear in the shower? There is only one way out for them and that is down the drain...

Those big information signs on the M25 that say 'Report of debris' or Report of obsruction'. Give us a clue of where. In the next mile, next 10 miles, over in Essex when I'm driving through Kent. Never actually seen debris or an obstruction when I've see those signs.

Thatís another thing; got a kids bubble machine out in the garden for my daughter and the bubble solution just sits on the top. Itís like a fly/insect mass suicide in there. Bodies floating everywhere. I wouldnít mind but it actually buggers up the machines ability to work properly.

Twats at checkouts who think that it is acceptable to snatch at your card.

I think you may have stumbled upon a useful way to get rid of insects.

People put a bit of washing up liquid in their swimming pools, this lowers surface tension and any drinking wasps or flies just drown.....
