HomePro showing bathroom wall tile samples that they don't actually have in stock. Of course one of them was the one I really wanted, but 'cos of the likely long wait before they could get them I gave up & bought something else. Now when the work's done I know that every time I go in the bathroom I'll be reminded of that moment - forever....
B'stards, gettin' my hopes up!

Cretinous driver who got to a roundabout ahead of me (with a sign on it saying ROUNDABOUT with circle & driving direction arrows), slowing then completely ignoring it & driving round the wrong way into the path of oncoming traffic. Moron - gave him the horn but completely ignored me as expected...lucky no accident but definitely saved the guy at least a second in time & 10 yards' driving.

How was he supposed to concentrate on driving if you were giving him the horn? May I suggest being a little more circumspect in the future. Possibly dress a little more conservatively.

That you've picked on my single reply, without following the chain of events to which I was responding, where someone complained about 20mph limits and there was a sarcastic response about "yeh, why shouldn't we try and save lives"... to which I replied that people shouldn't be walking in the roads.

If someone had ranted about knobhead farmer-types driving like dicks around country lanes and I'd said people shouldn't have walked in the road, you might have had a valid point.

But I didn't. And you don't.

There's a reason why some roads are limited to 20 mph you halfwit

strawberry mivi 30-06-2017 04:10 PM

Point of order.
Is it still an official 20 mph limit if the sign does not match the style in the Highway Code?

I got a "tube" in the mail from my bank... it was about 14" long and 2" diameter. The sort of thing they post calendars or certificates in.

With somewhat of a curiosity I pop one of the plastic end plugs, and pull out some highly glossy sheets only to find it is an advert for getting a mortgage with them.

Can someone tell me how they can justify this?

They're a bank - they can do what they like with no consequences. That's the lesson learned from the last 9 years isn't it. Burn em all to the ground i say!

only after I've withdrawn all my money first please. :)

I get annoyed when celebrities go to Africa and start ***** crying whilst asking us to give our money to charity. Worst of all was Bono asking us to fund the building of a well for a small village. He said " all they need to complete the project is 1,000". I was thinking can anyone spot a filthy rich tw@t nearby? Perhaps he can help.

Had this on a program on maritime wind turbines the other day when the Danish(?) engineer was being interviewed they put subtitles when he was speaking quite good English just with a bit of an accent.

I'll raise that with unnecessary blurring of just about anything like TV screens or company names on some TV programs. There's a program on at the moment about Dubai airport where they sometimes blur the company name on a passing A380 then show it in all its glory for most of the program, why are you trying to hide the fact (badly) that 'Emirates' planes may be found at Dubai airport?

I used to watch Rab C Nesbit with the subtitles feature switched on. It wasn't that I couldn't understand the dialogue but the way it was toned down in the subtitles added to the amusement. [What no smiley wearing a string vest?]

richdeniro 03-07-2017 02:15 PM

Possibly a controversial one but people (managers usually) who favour phone calls over email for simple and quick work related things.

I am British and so reserved and introverted therefore not a fan of making pointless phone calls in a open plan office. 99% of the time you get the impression that the person on the other end of the line would have rather you just emailed too.

Mr Mojo Risin 03-07-2017 02:54 PM

People who use an App to jump the queue to get a coffee. Is your life so important that you can't wait for 5 minutes with the plebs? Hopefully that faeces in coffee scandal that was in the news last week affects only them.

Yup. With you on this.

I'll do a phone call sometimes, when I feel its necessary, but otherwise, unless you are looking to build a relationship with someone, what's the point?

From the scottish based contingent, Exiled Stirling looks like Danny De Vito and I look like a slightly overweight Karl Pilkington. Bubbs reminds me of Rodney Bewes off of the likely lads and Keltic is the guy off the Harry Enfield show who says 'only me'. Not sure if that's how you imagined us :) I always picture you as someone with huge Nostrils.

Cyclists who believe they have a right to maintain their momentum that supersedes the Highway Code.

I wouldn't want to FaceTime or Skype the BBS. I don't want to shatter the "DJ" element, as in having a mental image of what you all look like, and you know what it's like when you see the face of a DJ or radio celeb.... Just plain weird

I sometimes picture Glaziers Fan as being like yer man from Drop Dead Fred

Mainly, being massively cheaper

Just last week, I was delighted to see flies plastered on my windscreen after a comparatively short drive. As a kid in the sixties, this was always an inevitable consequence of driving in the summer months. I presumed it becoming rarer was due to the soaking of fields with pesticides so I was hoping the reappearance of this phenomenon was due to a reduction in toxins which has got to be a good thing, no?

People who say "it is what it is" as a summary at the end of a sentence.

ES - Joe Strummer
EE - The cad off of Brush Strokes
BU - The sheriff from The Cannonball Run (I think he called people 'Bubba')
KE - Not a celebrity, but a stereotypical kilt wearing Highlander (apologies if he's a Lowlander)

My own nostrils are of regular size, but I have been told that I look like Andre Agassi :), David Suchet :frown: and Omid Djalili :eek:. The closest is Kevin Richardson at 40. You may notice a common theme :sob:.

I speak f*cking English so of course it makes sense.

Whether or not what you have just said is complete bullshit is another matter.

If that makes sense?

I think this is an update on, 'know what I mean?'

Similar to finishing your sentence with, '...no?' ... which someone has just done. I do it quite a lot too, I think it's a Spinglish thing as the Spanish do it a lot.
