Going to have to make some big decisions over the weekend.

They will drive. Reasonably fit people in their late fifties. I tend to agree that the risk of the trip is not materially greater, for anyone, than if they were to continue with regular life is south London

Well, if it takes two years to raise £10,000 for a holiday, take a £5,000 holiday instead. Otherwise, it's just putting all your eggs in one basket.

Anyway, the thing that annoys me is buying coffee where they make it extra hot, which I didn't ask for. I'm not wearing a high-vis jacket, I'm not speaking with a chippy-chappy cockney accent, and I'm not sneering some remark about bloody poncy luke-warm coffee. I expect the milk to be heated to the optimum temperature and the texture of the milk to be stretched and light. If you over-heat the milk, it turns to muddy water and it's crap, and it's certainly not worth the £2.95 I paid for it.

Going to have to make some big decisions over the weekend.

Looks like, from Monday, many businesses will have to close here in Spain as we go into a 2 week "lockdown". A good friend of mine has a golf travel business and in just a week has gone from having his best year on record to staring bankruptcy in the face, the academy I work for is being forced to close for 2 weeks and my boss can't afford to pay her teachers for not teaching. The knock on in April could be disastrous for the school.

Itís never interested me until now. We wanted to do something different and it was the Mrs and daughters that decided on a cruise. It did look pretty bloody good to be fair so I went with it and was looking forward to it. Not sure we will book another one any time soon though.

Portugal it is ....

Excellent news. Get your cash quick. You do wonder how many cruise companies will survive.

And flights?

Yes, already written to the travel agent and asked them to refund everything ASAP. They had already confirmed that should they cancel the cruise, everything including flights, hotels and transfers, will be refunded as they booked it as a package.

I have a choice of at least four places to get coffee from in the morning and I go to the one which makes the coffee I like best.

I suggest you do the same.

When did blokes decide that the best way to carry a bag is the straight armed approach, like a doctor arriving on call? Is it a pre/post gymnasium work out thing?

I'm still trapped in the foreign student look of putting one arm of a rucksack over my shoulder when I'm in the unfortunate situation of needing to carry a bag. I'm not going to stalk around with a stiff back & straight arms carrying a bag like I'm on my way to autopsy.

Maybe it is a maturity thing, ie kids have backpacks men have cases - for suits or briefs (as in papers not underwear)

The only exception is when one hikes

I often use a backpack to carry stuff to work, it so much more practical, but feel unconscionably child-like. I would never go to a client meeting with a backpack, but then I am both shallow and trapped in a wasp-etiquette that you left footers and swarthy types are happily oblivious to.

Selhurst Celtic 14-03-2020 11:01 AM

I get that last point. The rucksack does seem immature. As does turning up to meet a client in your suit and the coat that you're wearing has a hood. I always think that looks a bit rum. Maybe some of your good olde engerlish proddyism is rubbing off on me.

Some new pet hates for my list:

a) Anyone, punters or politicians, choosing to make political capital out of the Coronavirus. FFS what is it that they donít understand...... get some perspective

b) So called experts choosing to release videos on social media undermining the official advice.
ó- put any 5 experts in a room and you will have 3 opinions.
ó- The only certain fact re coronavirus is that no one knows what the right answers are and spouting in a video that your answer is better than theirs simply confuses and undermines confidence. If they really care they should/would be raising the issues directly with the appropriate authorities, not campaigning or worse still launching a career. Wonít even mention the fake ones who should be locked up.

c) the BBC news coverage. They seem to be continuing their election style and again undermining with their questions by constantly implying everything and anything is wrong in their interviews. I donít expect them to be dumb mouthpieces but this is a very different situation and demands a more responsible and frankly grown up approach.

Like it or not, to get through this it requires us all to focus on being in it together, to look out for each other and to understand that we are dealing with unknowns and so things will evolve. Also - we have to accept that the best possible outcome here is that itís less of a disaster. It will be a damaging, human disaster, we have to collectively mitigate the impacts of that. Not beat the s*** out of officials or each other with every bad piece of news.

Rant over.

Get them all the time. Gas line insurance (You will be responsible for the cost of fixing a line in the street etc.), same with the water company.

Also get official looking letters that give the impression they are from the government or social security selling one thing or another. Usually in light brown envelopes with official looking seals on them (all eagles and Latin inscriptions).

Being a peevish and irascible old chap I could list a plethora of things that really 'Raise my hackles' and get me into a lather.They include

A. Being caught at a darned 'Level Crossing' for seemingly ages.
B. Being caught in a traffic jam.
C. Getting behind a tractor or slow moving vehicle with no opportunity to overtake.
D. Motorists who don't indicate "Thanks" when one has let them pass.
E. People who do not have the manners to say "Please" and "Thank You" and generally people with no manners at all.
F. Incidents during the course of a football match either on or off the field of play.

Blah,darned blah,blah.I really could get up to "Z" in the alphabet.
My 'Good lady wife' has said that I used to be a jolly japester when I was much less ripe in years and that the passage of time has turned me into a "Moaning old git" (Her words) with a face like misery on several occasions.:wallbash:

Aisles are not wide enough for two to be parked side by side and get the smaller trolley through (that I use).

Well, if your own trolley didn't itself have tons of toilet roll & pasta poking over the sides.... :p

Haha I saw Nicholas Cage do this in an awful film I watched the other week Ďthe colour of spaceí and thought the same.

Watching people use spray sanitiser.

It annoys me how embarrassed I am when asking a petrol station shop assistant if they have any hand sanitizer.

I get all embarrassed as if I’m asking for condoms or a jazz mag !

People on website comments sections politicizing the current world and local health situation.

TBH whilst that is very annoying, it is not as annoying as people just posting insults. Getting bored of moving posts off that thread.

Actually it's the "righties" that annoy me.

I've posted elsewhere about our local radio station owner who is quarantined in Nebraska after being on the cruise ship in Japan.

Apparently he and his wife have been receiving numerous 4 letter word insults and worse still, death threats if they every return to our town. I'm sure it is a lot of posturing, but at the same time very scary and insane.

I suspect what will annoy me is banks and other bill providers not being at all helpful or accommodating on monthly debts. And authorities not issuing guidelines to them to be so.

WTF is wrong with people? Are they really that stupid? FFS.

What looked like perfect timing (going to be stuck in the flat for some days it seems) - the cable company have a promo: 1 week of all the Fox movie channels for free - has reminded me why I would never pay for the package.
After a promising start on Saturday with 3 movies on the trot on Fox Classics that I thoroughly enjoyed, it has been utter garbage ever since.
**** me do people actually pay for this?

Selhurst Celtic 16-03-2020 06:26 PM

I'm currently annoyed that my office isn't offering work from home yet.
Four of my mates that work in town got the email. I'll be late joining them for St Patrick's Day pints & will be late into work the following day due to a hangover. This could all be avoided.

CP-RJW 16-03-2020 06:43 PM

Finally being consistent and making progress at the gym, and then corona comes along. I know BoJo hasn’t technically banned gyms yet, merely advised against them, but I’m not enough of selfish prat to continue going. Today was my last session in god knows how long.

For anyone facing the same dilemma, this is a godsend

What annoys me is people answering their own stupid questions.

The unprecedented number of people suddenly using the word unprecedented.
