Water Company turning off the water for maintenance before I've had a shower.

And the fact they didn't exactly advertise the fact they were going to do it very well. Apparently there is a sign at the end of the street which I obviously didn't see.

Edit: just talk a walk to look at the sign... apparently it's going to be off for another 7 hours! Amazing how you miss just turning a tap and water coming out.

Fortunately I had taken a poop before, and only had one pee after so got away with it, but yes that was on my mind.

In the end it was only off for 3 hours... I guess they posted a worse case scenario.

Again, people who sniff their nose (avoiding some shit cocaine joke) on quiet morning commuter trains. If it’s a bloke by himself, it’s about 7 out of 10 people who do it. I want to cave their heads in, I dont even think they need to blow their nose it’s just some habit.

You can get 70-80 mpg out of the things if you drive them carefully on the motorway so I can't figure out why they're suddenly the Devil's spawn either.


Surely an upgraded exhaust system would be better than consigning them all to the scrapheap?

I had to take my 16 plate van, so only just over 3 years old, into London on Tuesday. 8 hours of on-street parking - £68.00 (That includes the extra £3/hr they charge for diesel vehicles) plus Congestion charge plus ULEZ, so just over £90 to pay out before l start making any money. Luckily, l don't work up town too often.

'I was transfixed on the Cardiff-Liverpool game on Sunday, but each time I glanced to observe Crystal Palace, I saw Wifried Zaha running Arsenal ragged. It was nice to see Christian Benteke among the goals again after such a long barren spell, but his link-up play with Zaha cannot be underestimated. Zaha needs someone to play off and a fit Benteke is as good as anyone.'

Sky Q remote is exactly the same, think it's going for the record in our house and i've only had it three months. Plus they all look the same, so when you sit them side by side with my LG remote and the BT house phone as well, there's been much hilarity at my expense when trying to turn the TV over with the house phone.

In a similar vein, the landscape team that take care of the common areas in our neighbourhood who come every Monday morning and start with the leaf blower outside our house at 7:00am. Not good form for us retired folks!

Because the BBS has always been more than just a football forum?

I hear you there. And the battery cover keeps falling off when you drop the controller. Tivo six is sh1t. I now have an extra two power sockets in use and cannot set a programme to tape when I am away from home unless the WiFi is on in the house. Was always able to tape without the WiFi being on before.
