Uninformed football commentators.

Andrew Robertson hasn't been a "revelation". Anyone who watches football knows how good he is and how good a player he'll become.

Car Insurance.

How can being hit by a flying rock kicked up by the car in front of you be considered a collision which causes you to lose your good driver discount if you get the damage fixed by insurance.

Apparently if the rock had smashed the windscreen it would have been covered and not affected my premium.

Bastards!

Out of interest, you don't think Hennessey's has improved for that reason?

Obviously not. Hennessey isn’t the world’s greatest keeper but suggesting he has improved because of competition is basically calling him unprofessional and lazy because it is suggesting he simply couldn't be arsed to improve before because he didn’t have to, because no one was going to take his place.

I would imagine it is down to better coaching, better defence etc.

BB Bob 21-08-2018 02:27 PM

I think the added frisson of knowing if you don't perform, someone will take your place in the team is a key driver for players in team sports.

Its not suggesting that they are unprofessional, but a team with competition for players in key positions will normally outperform one without that factor.

I know I'm going a little deaf, but I'm pretty sure it's not all me. I'm forever saying, "say again", "excuse me", "one more time", etc., etc.

Also I tend to just say, "Yes" when I don't hear them properly, which apparently is not always the right answer! :wallbash:

I found myself unwittingly at a Holiday park in Cornwall a few years back , went to the bar and rocked up to an empty counter and ordered a pint... only then did i see a nice orderly queue of people at one corner ... is this a normal thing at these places... good idea though..

It made me laugh when I was in Jamaica at how the black Americans kept calling the staff "my brother", all the staff just kept looking at me and rolling their eyes...and then we all went to Juici Beef for patties on the tips.

The honkies just kept playing volleyball all day.

But, for me, I have never seen anyone as rude as the Japanese when I was in China. Horrible people.

The fact that, by his own admission, he'd let himself get 1 1/2 stone over his peak weight calls into question his professionalism and attitude in my opinion. Granted, this was after Euro2016 and during the Pardew debacle, but no professional sportsman should allow themselves to be that out of shape, through sheer pride if nothing else.

I have recently been in Majorca. It's the first time I've gone anywhere apart from Ireland with the family in over 10 years. I was led to believe that it was the Germans who woke at the crack of dawn to claim sun loungers by the pool. That is not the case. It is Johnny English who does this. On day one I reckon I wandered around for about 10 minutes looking for somewhere to park the family and was met with towel covered loungers but nobody on them. So I selected a decent location, waited a further 10 minutes and then shifted all the gear from a few loungers and set us up. We mucked around by the pool & had lunch by the pool all morning and afternoon. Then at around 1500hrs a northern bloke approaches me and asks if I took their sun loungers. Yes mate, at about 1000hrs and I've been here since. He looked like he was going to protest but I think it dawned on him how selfish he had been, so he picked up his pile of towels and wandered off.
From that day onwards I would sometimes head over to the pool at around 8 and shift all the towels that had been 'reserved' before heading over to breakfast. It created numerous arguments around the place but amused me no end.

Very few... Came home yesterday to a voicemail message where the person appeared to think the answer phone message was actually me picking up the phone and then was asking a few times, in between hello's, if I could hear her. Just at the point she was identifying herself the phone went dead. I have no idea who it was but I am thankful to her for giving me that buzz of excitement and reassurance when coming home and seeing the flashing light, that someone, somewhere had been thinking of me.

Holiday in Tenerife many years back with a bunch of lads. Got fed up with no loungers so, we used to pick the ones up that had towels on, moved them and put our own in their place...people came to protest that they'd "saved these loungers", we all pointed out that no, they saved those loungers over there. :)

Never put down towels unless you intend on being there for the day. But have to say fallen into the trap of putting them out early doors - The only other option is to get one without a parasol which means definite sunburn. Its rubbish but literally everyone does it everywhere you go. Has to be a better solution. Currently its (in most places) 6-8 time frame - Its a total walk of shame. Sunglasses on - Don't look anyone in the eye, head down, no room for error and quick sprint back to the room where your wife and kid are snoring away.

That said - Heard of one place in Cyprus where the rule is 8am start - So 8 am everyone lines up and charges. Anyone that does it before 8am gets a verbal lashing from staff who are monitor pool.

I gave her the ‘you dirty smelly ‘orrible fecker’ look. Didn’t work so may move on to your idea next.

Just on the towels on sunloungers bit...

We went down this morning about half 10 and there was the usual towels on with no one in sight but we managed to bag 4 so no bother.

Is it then hypocritical to leave out towels on the loungers when going back for some lunch and getting out of the sun for a couple of hours?

Wolfnipplechips 23-08-2018 03:12 PM

Rule of thumb for us is reserve a two or three even though there are six of us, use them for a few hours and then donate back to needy looking old people or hot birds as the day meanders on.

That said - Heard of one place in Cyprus where the rule is 8am start - So 8 am everyone lines up and charges. Anyone that does it before 8am gets a verbal lashing from staff who are monitor pool.


Renting a villa with a pool means this is never a problem.. get up when you want and do exactly what you want... on holiday to enjoy not get involved in more stress..

smoking is annoying tho - People don't seem to care on holiday.

Cant be many places in europe where you can get a house for 2 grand.

Even if the first two things you bought were an inpregnable fence and a big swimming pool for the garden. 29 degrees there today.

Yup. A couple of back and forths but haven’t heard anything since. I imagine she’s pretty busy and doesn’t have firm answers yet.

Who is tending to the lawns while you are in the commonwealth? :)

Going to get your money back for a cancelled gig ticket and being told you have to go to Bangkok an hour away to one of their chosen outlets for a refund. No not the venue just one of their chosen ticket outlets in Bangkok. If they can sell tickets and take your money nationwide they can return your money nationwide.
After abiut 40 minutes of ****wits trying to fob me off I told them I would put it all over the internet and constantly spam their facebook page with it, they decided they could actually open the ******* till and return my money.

The previous gig I did book with them was also cancelled and I did go to Bangkok as they said. After 2 months they still hadnt recredited my account after a further 2 weeks of calling them several times a day they fianally repaid it.

Thaiticketmajor = utter wankers.

Why do I get the image of Michael Douglas in Falling Down pop into my head when I read some of your posts?

the digger 24-08-2018 10:33 AM

People who seem genuinely surprised and affronted that they're not allowed to take their dogs to work with them.

Not my work, before you ask, ME.

the digger 24-08-2018 10:34 AM

People talking too much/loudly about inane shit in places I go to relax.

the digger 24-08-2018 10:35 AM

Me.
