What I don't understand is the implication from those ads that when doctors say you don't need antibiotics but you reply no you really do want them, the doctors just give in and write a prescription. Or are people off scoring whatevercillin themselves from some dodgies down Brixton High Street?

Someone in front of me today indicated left which I assumed meant they were pulling next to the kerb to park,so I slowed down.To my amazement they turned right at the junction instead.

It's the ones who indicate left, and then swing out right before turning left. Who are these dilberts?

I had a good row today with some twat in a Range Rover, who turned right with me out a two lane road, and then tried to cut across me to turn left. He wouldn't have it that the road markings from the exit road clearly showed right hand turn from both lanes. F*cking moron.

On another note why do people in Range Rovers and 4x4's seem to think that when driving along a road and there are cars parked on one side of the road that they have the right of way to drive right in the middle of the road forcing you to wait between parked cars despite there being enough room for two vehicles to easily pass each other if they stuck to their side of the road?

In Spain, during Franco times , the law was that if you were ON the roundabout then you had to give way to traffic approaching it....hence loads of old timers just driving straight in front of you.

He's an unfunny digit who first came to my attention as a giggling simpleton on the tv programme Taskmaster.

I'd forgotten about him until I read the bbc website today.

Now he's making light about an assault that led to a murder of one of our fans. And he's from Croydon too. I'd like to meet him.

To be fair, you pays your money and you takes your choice.

It’s a sophisticated game. You can’t moan about it if you were happy with the price when you bought it.

Annoying that it’s faulty though.

Things that annoy you
 
Christmas shopping. Pre-internet, a day in Croydon or Bromley could sort it all out in one hit. Now there’s no shops so you’re forced into ploughing through the Internet, looking at two dimensional pictures.

Then you have to hope they get delivered, annoy the neighbours with a stream of parcels they have to sign for, or organise delivery at a drop off point.

On the internet you can avoid Sharon from New Addington, who brings her brood out to do Christmas shopping with her rather than get someone to look after them. Bored, wailing kids, and soppy Shaz not getting why they are playing up. And ****head Shaz repeats it the following year. And blames the packed shops on the immigrants.

Apparently we have jobsworths working in government agencies here too!

In the spirit of fairness I should update this.

Despite numerous attempts by both the case manager from the government office in question to contact me Thursday and Friday (voice mails at home, and voice mails on my mobile Friday), and me calling them back on Friday we failed to actually talk to each. I was pretty frustrated (with myself as much as anyone for not hearing my mobile on Friday - bloody work!) and had given up hope with talking to a person.

To my surprise on Saturday morning around 8:55am local time (during injury time of the Palace game) the phone goes, and I start to swear at bloody telemarketers interrupting the game and was going to ignore it, then I saw the number calling and recognized it as the one left on my mobile by the GO.

The lady was very apologetic for calling so early on a Saturday, but she understood how hard it was for people working to contact them during the week. I told her I was impressed, and not to apologize. I was happy to talk to her, and sorry she had to work on a Saturday.

Anyway we sorted everything out about the UK pension in minutes, and there are no additional forms to be filled out (she took my word for everything).

All's well, and I am sorry for my initial annoyance, which has now turned into being impressed with a Government agency that caterers to the working person.

I owe them and the lady for calling her a jobsworth.

"Which homework?"

Or "Can you take out the Recycling?"
"Recycling"
"Yes Recycling"
"Which recycling"

Language should be flexible not rigid.

I wouldn’t necessarily argue about the grammatical correctness of the word, rather the fact it sounds fvcking truly awful when it’s said

I'm not going to lie, is the other one I had to batter out of circulation at home.

Missed that one fortunately but have had a lot of "oh my days!" Which I haven't jumped on as it's preferable to my ffs

That's "trust me" in my house. Which I pointed out to my son that anyone whoever uses that phrase is about to lie.

I accept that stay-at-home mums may get a little bored of the company of their children but it is no reason to waste everybody else's time by talking mundane bollocks to every salesperson they encounter.

Here´s a new game, work out which word is stressed in this sentence.

How about "Very good I could of"

What about in this context?

Your wife left you for another man, took the kids, house, and even the dog. How are you coping.

Dont worry, I have gotten over it. Dont worry, I have got over it.


The first sounds better to me. Always has.

I would be careful using thag in my house. In our context, it is usually the wife harping on about some small detail that needs to be addressed - some dotting of the i or croosing of a t. I am usually much more relaxed about this.

TBH. Although I am invariably right, I should accede to her wishes. Because the one time the shit inexicably hits the fan, and I havent done what she harped on about, then that shit is going to fll down right on my head.


The reverse annoyance is that I often mention some small important detail to her, and she shouts back that I have said it 10 times and she is neither deaf nor stupid. Then she forgets. To add to the pain, it is more than my life is worth to actually mention that was why I made the point six times.
