A yum yum is a donutty type product. Marvellous

I guess the machine is only a gate to get you to a real person... apparently this info does not come up on a screen for the real person you finally get to.

Things changing. A podcast I like a lot is moving to a new model where the new premium shit costs £240 a year on Patreon to get and part of the basic free one is becoming part of that, plus one of the hosts has essentially become a bit part player. Can't justify that cost (half a season ticket for one thing...) so basically it's a bit shit now. TBF the premium stuff will probably be great but still...

Mothers Day/Fathers Day/Valentines Day/Any gift giving ******* day.


Once Xmas is out of the way you think you’re in the clear until the birthdays roll round. How wrong can you be, these parasitic “days” that mean it’s compulsory for you to buy a ******* gift for said family member or forever be looked on as a cold hearted, tight fisted c u nt.


Truth is, I don’t mind spending the money, i just don’t care enough to be arsed to do it.

I haven’t got my mum or dad a mothers or fathers day card ever, as far as i can recall.

I don’t get the Mrs **** all either

They can all **** off.

Football stats that become fashionable to use as if are significant, but actually are an indication of **** all.

It used to be possession stats, and now the latest is 'he has never relegated a club'.

No probably because a club ends up sacking a manager before the season ends because of the perilous position the club have been placed in.

eg Pulis this season. Even more annoying will be if he takes Boro up he will be lauded and his part in the inevitable WBA relegation will be totally forgotten.

Top tip.....Put the dead batteries on a warm radiator for half hour,will give you a few hours extra use.You can also gently squeeze in a pair of plyors to get the same result:p

Stick a bit of tin foil between the positive end and the silver plate in the battery area usually gets more power from the batteries and makes them work a bit longer

People (ok women) who wear shoes to the office but then realise they either don't fit or are too high etc and then spend the day walking around with no shoes on. Then do the same every day.

Few pins on the floor will put a stop to that.

People who look (for example in a shop window) then when they’ve finished they proceed to walk backwards away from the shop before looking where they’re going.

You wouldn’t do it if you were driving so why do so many knobs do this in busy areas?

Not about affording stuff. Its the principle that 'there must be some fecking batteries in this house' and not wanting to go out again having just got back in from walking the dogs.

ElwissAtMemphis 14-03-2018 06:10 PM

The singing baby in The AA adverts. In fact "annoy" doesn't adequately convey how intensely irritating it is. It's nausea-inducing. It's skin-crawlingly creepy. It's devoid of any redeeming feature.

Is it one of those deliberately annoying campaigns that are cynically designed to worm their way into your subconscious or did a rational executive make the decision that it was endearing? My faith in human nature makes me hope that it's the former but I fear that it's probably the latter.

Maz 14-03-2018 06:53 PM

An advertiser seeking to be remembered is barely cynical. That is really what advertising is meant to achieve.

You see, I get this - I get the point of an advert is so people remember it, remember the product.

But, if an advert annoys me, however catchy/memorable, am I more or less likely to buy the product? Personally, I'd say less, but how much of that is down to conscious/sub-conscious decision making, I don't know.

I've heard some people say they'd close their accounts with Nationwide over their annoying ads - and I don't get that mentality. If you're with NW for a reason, that reason is valid however shitty the ad. Equally, it wouldn't stop me opening an account, but I'd look whether it was the best for me, not whether it had the best/worst jingle.

But, if an advert annoys me, however catchy/memorable, am I more or less likely to buy the product? Personally, I'd say less, but how much of that is down to conscious/sub-conscious decision making, I don't know.

I've heard some people say they'd close their accounts with Nationwide over their annoying ads - and I don't get that mentality. If you're with NW for a reason, that reason is valid however shitty the ad. Equally, it wouldn't stop me opening an account, but I'd look whether it was the best for me, not whether it had the best/worst jingle.

It’s an interesting question, that was much discussed when I was in advertising, and probably still is now. There are certainly any number of case histories of famously annoying commercials which were equally famously successful. From Shake’n’Vac to Cillit Bang, all the way to today’s Go Compare.

I actually find him funny, he is so bitter.

Most advertising campaigns target product recognition, not only sales, right? Annoying overly repetitive ads certainly improve this aspect.
