Also when you leave on time and others go on that they worked late despite the fact that you got in earlier than them and didn't spend the day engaging in idle chit chat.

When you say"Morning" to someone and they say in a smarmy voice, "yes it is". Pricks!

There's a bloke at work who won't acknowledge you if you say "good morning" because apparently "there is nothing good about it". :jerkit:

Most of our office come in about 9.30 - 10.00am. I'm in around 7.30 most days (except today, train wankers). I finish at 4pm, don't take a lunch break and keep my door shut all day to avoid having to talk to people about non-work related stuff.

Everyone else takes a lunch break, spends half the day gossiping (my office is by the kitchen) and, on the rare occasions I work late, everyone has pissed off by 5.30... yet every day I get "ooh, leaving early again?".

:S:

She let me go shopping on my own again.....so its a complaint against supermarkets. I was looking for the marmalade and so were an old couple. Now the cheap stuff is where to high no its at floor level these poor old pensioners could not bend down to get any of the cheap jars were really happy when I picked one up for them , and looking at it saved them one pound, small change maybe but would son add up on the weekly shop.

You have a stationary line of traffic and the car in front of you is about 2 car lengths away from the next car in front - so you then cannot get past any form of pedestrian crossing or order at McDonalds drive thru speaker.

Close the gap you idiot and think of others.

Wayne Andrews is God 19-10-2017 07:44 PM

People raring to on the train even though its doesnt leave for 10 minutes (end of the line for example Victoria) and there are hundreds of people that need to get off, they sometimes make a small exit hole, which would quicken the whole process if everyone stood well back. I got into a row with some fat bloke at East Croydon who swung his suitcase at people coming off, desperate to get on the train, I said something like 'Wait for people to get off' and had him confronting me with his equally fat wife behind him getting all irate because I said something obvious. Some rudeboi stated there are 'kids on the train' (not sure what difference that made as we werent swearing only disagreeing) and he walked back to his suitcase full of fredo's and pot noodles.

What about 'Birdy Nom Nom'?

Oddjob 19-10-2017 07:55 PM

On the theme of irritating social media phrases (nom nom) this thing of mothers now referring to themselves as 'lionesses' and groups of women going out who are now 'squads' apparently - wtf?

Done this one before probably but it's reared its ugly head again - anyone who puts on FB that they are having a cull of friends - grow the **** up.

The amount of time it's take a film to start at the cinema these days - 27 minutes before Lego Ninjago movie started after its advertised start time. Outrageous.

Point out what the role of lionesses is in the natural world. Do all the fecking work, while the lazy man has first dibs at the benefits; the hunt, and his pick of the pride. Plus, he can just kill another Lion's kids when shacking up with a bint that has been around the block a bit.

Maybe pointing this out to these women will show them their lack of intelligence.

Probably, in a stunning show of even further stupidity they will call you sexist.

Why? Do you spend your precious time on the planet heating up a pot noodle for lunch. Do you also take time out of your day to buy said pot noodle.

Or is it because you have a particularly odd job that this is necessary.

Each to their own, but an adult person bring ing lunch in from home in a plastic container needs to work in an office with David Brent.

I'll live life well as a bellend if I never have to resort to being that sad.

I comment that the whole practice of bringing in a school packed lunch (with penguin) is silly, and even Mr 'Faggot' says I'm out of order.

Something has gone very wrong in London in 2017.

I managed 18 years in Croydon and London offices without having to prepare a home made lunch to bring in.

I can understand that. But the pics and references I'm referring to definitely relate to people eating heated up food at a regular location with a microwave. Working on the road, down a mine, on a boat, in construction would warrant packed sandwiches.

Aaah. Not at all a specific case. Is everyone in the UK allergic to food now?

I wonder what previous generations would have thought with their ration cards.

Wow. Not sure bitter even covers this rant. Some people actually are careful with money- not sure why you seem to have a problem with that. Perhaps they want to spend that saved money towards a holiday or presents for kids or something. God forbid it should have such an enormous impact on your existence.

Seriously, are you getting upset at a BBS post. I am amazed at you.

Don't you own multiple properties. When you've sold that one you had on the Life in the Sun programme - that'll free up some spending money.

I like the fact your wife cooks for you, mine does the same. I suspect she has something tasty at home for me now.

Or tight. I place a value on my the cost of my time and convenience. Saving a quid a day on lunch doesn't do it for me in the grand scheme of things. I think it is a sad state of affairs for adults at least over 40 to be scrimping and saving in such ways. But maybe austerity really is that bad, and I have been away too long.

As I say it doesn't annoy me as such. It bemuses me. Personally I would be looking for a job that pays a bit more or a lifestyle in which I didn't have to bring in a lunch every day.

But each to their own. If I upset the sensitive souls of otherwise hardened football supporters then I apologise.

I'll send some plastic cuttlery in the post. Tweet me on:

As I say it doesn't annoy me as such. It bemuses me. Personally I would be looking for a job that pays a bit more or a lifestyle in which I didn't have to bring in a lunch every day.

But each to their own. If I upset the sensitive souls of otherwise hardened football supporters then I apologise.

I'll send some plastic cuttlery in the post. Tweet me on:

A quid? For lunch? Seriously?

Because I'm a Tory who voted to leave the EU and am not ashamed to say so.For people like Wetarse that makes you worse than a paedophile in their twisted minds.Anyway,this is a great thread so let's not let his bile ruin it....

Don't you own multiple properties. When you've sold that one you had on the Life in the Sun programme - that'll free up some spending money.

I like the fact your wife cooks for you, mine does the same. I suspect she has something tasty at home for me now.

Just because we own two properties, it doesnt mean we can lunch out every bloody day! Are you on ******* crack or something? I am amazed at the condescending attitude you have put across.

Just a personal thing here but, thanks to the Brexit uncertainty my wife has lost upwards of €400 a month in wages due to the weak pound. Our house, which was an investment for our pension and our two kids futures, paid for by my inheritance from my father, had been put up for sale out of a stark neccesity, not ******* choice! Saving a, as you flippantly put it, a quid or a euro a day is how tight things have got here!

The reason it has annoyed me to such an extent is your gross rudeness and inability to understand peoples situations....I never expected such snobbery from you.

Fecking eat breakfast, buy a fecking sandwich and have a good meal when you get home. ******** twats.

How much is your time worth, plus the inconvenience of bringing a school dinner to work.

If there are BBSers that do this, sorry - take a look at yourself.

What a load of rubbish. I’d much rather have 3 decent meals a day then buying a meal deal from the co-op or Tesco. It’s as simple as cooking an extra portion the night before.

If you are all that poor I'll send over some luncheon vouchers from Chile.

Any jobs going in Chile?

One hardworking microwave user for lunch here at Croydon :)

Let me get this straight. Because it has been a long time since I worked in an office. There are subtle rules to be followed these days.

We cant say that people shouldnt bring in last nights leftovers, but we can tell people that they cant eat smelly food. We can dictate what they eat, but not where they sourse their food. Okay, I think I have got that.

We can just about all laugh at Mr Arsenal with his own coffee maker, but it is not on to rib Mr Avon tupperware.

What do I glean from this. That life is all about horses for courses. What might be annoying to some, or nerdish, is quite normal for others.

Outside of things that should be universal no nos, talking loudly on the phone on public transport etc..

Plenty of jobs. Supposedly second world country though. Culture is different here, lunch is the main meal and nearly everyone eats a three course main meal outside everyday.

And surprisingly, while it can be quite expensive to buy stuff here, most seem to get by on half or less of London wages.

Exactly. What on earth is this ninny gibbering on about?

This equates to having a go at people who eat homemade food over manufactured shite full of preservatives. I would have thought this would be seen as a good thing in any context. Weird.

Precious Pete.

At least I have posted my gross rudeness in the correct thread.

I will just look in my diary - the way you are going on I must have murdered someone without realising.

Sell up and come to Chile. It is the new Spain.

But not quite as wierd as packing the plastic tub away in the briefcase every morning. When you get your gold watch you can look back at that as 40+ years well spent. All very Reginald Perrin.

I hope all these offices have more than one microwave, could be quite a queue. Like a ladies toilet at a concert.

If I lived in a country where I could have a two hour lunchbreak and have steak frite and a carafe of Red two or three times a week I would be all over that shit.

Unfortunately I don't.

In all seriousness, I think it is all about good manners, if I use the microwave I clean it after use, and I expect the person who uses it before me or after to do the same. The same goes with using coffee pot or kettle, mugs, plates etc.

There are people at my work and I am sure this is common everywhere, who use the communal microwave or oven or dishes and do not bother to clean and this festers smell and some poor sod ends up cleaning every one's mess, which then leads to some smart arse to leave notes like the one for 'Dave'

Literally everyone does this in my office. It's totally normal. No one bats an eyelid and would be as confused as I am over this slightly odd fixation.

Anyway you crack on.

People who take the same length lunch hour as everyone else,but have fag breaks as well.
The usual tedious annual thing of people letting off fireworks well before Bonfire Night
