Yep. My stepson that's 14 insists on wearing school trousers that are ridiculously too short with white socks. Looks like Michael Jackson in my day as a teenager.

More at business level. The blue suit, with brown shoes, and a jacket that has one button that is straining to do up, barely covers the belt line and the sleeves 2 inches too short.

But hay - I was a young man in the 70's, so I'm not one to talk about sensible clothing choices!

Luvvies and their award ceremonies. Two months every year of one kind or the other telling each other how absolutely wonderful they are and giving sanctimonious speeches about everything. Why do I care what some multi-millionaire actor thinks about anything?

One thing that drives me crazy is what to me seems to be extreme political correctness. So insisting on saying Chairperson instead of Chairman or Chairwoman.

Just a reminder that you should all now be using these new terms

manifold = personfold
manouevre = personouevre
mantra = persontra
maniac = personiac
mandible = personible

My personal favourite is that toping the Premier League is Person City. Awesome. Suddenly it doesn't seem quite so bad.

Now I know my history is crap but out of 700 nod gave me 510 (but 1/5 rating?) clear 330 and cap1 265

Fluoxetine.
I've been taking this for 12+ years and whilst it has been fantastic for me, it has led to me having vivid and extrodinary dreams every night. So much so, that my normal waking life has no chance of competing. I lead quite an active and sociable life, but nothing I do whilst awake, can compare to the fun I have when I'm asleep.
Bring on the f**ing Matrix I say! Morpheus, you can shove your pills up your arse- fantasy is unfortunately much more fun than reality.

Nah its the Peugeot. Fixed the Citroën then the Peugeot goes flat. French crap, potentially caused by me leaving an interior light on. I got a bump start and then we drove over to that nuclear bunker I wanted to buy, just kept the engine running all day. Seems to be OK again now.

People that use their mobile phone as a form of contactless payment to get through busy barriers at train and tube stations.

It rarely works and always seems to be slower than a contactless/oyster card so they stand there looking like an idiot trying to tap their phone on the plate whilst the queue behind them gets bigger. Also how difficult is it to have a plastic card in your pocket?

Sexism, racism, homophobia and people who chew with their mouth open. Anyone who is proud that they haven't read a book since they left school. Anyone who can pick a 'greatest book' or film or band (especially if the answer is Dan brown / Stephen King / JK Rowling/ Green Mile / Queen). Anyone who regularly uses the word literally (its a word that's rarely ever required) and of course people who mistake opinion for fact.

My bank ringing me with a birthday greeting when I am at war with them.

They are robbing me blind, won't give me a simple credit card for simple overseas transactions - small limits, are utterly discriminatory because I am a foreigner, and then call me personally with a twee message.

In fact, my 'executive' didn't call me - she got a lackey to do it.

I am often living in some absurd, parallel world to what most of us would see as logical and straightforward.

There was a piece on the radio the other day about a bar in New York (I believe) where if the barman hears anyone say "literally" he tells you you have 5 minutes to drink-up and then he will throw you out.... literally!

There are so many now that hardly anyone is sitting 3 feet above other road users.
Pointless in London, where most of them seem to be.
