This is narcissism. Steer well clear unless you want the life sucked out of you.

They have fantastic ability to turn something you’re talking about into a story that relates to themselves. There was a relative of mine years ago who was like that, and so engrossed in his own world, his problems and telling them to me in a loud and animated fashion right into the night, that on occasion I would literally drop off momentarily...wake up with a startle and realise he hadn’t even noticed.

Forgive me for going a bit tie-dye, but I've got no problems with graffiti if it is done well. I object more to advertising than freedom of expression. I'd rather see decent artwork than some vulgar advert & slogan trying to get me to part with my skrillah. Now where are my joss sticks?

We went to a small barbeque last night at a friend's place. My son and my friend's son are great friends and at 14/15 and we usually let them have a beer or cider as they've never had more than one. Events didn't follow the usual script this time :sleepy: Trying to placate a drunken, belligerent 14 year old who seemingly overnight acquired the strength of an ox tested the very limits of my patience on the long walk home. His mum usually calls him on a Saturday so I'm due a bucket load of grief in the next few hours for being a terrible dad :hmph:

Tell his mother that you had to drink excessively last night to teach him a lesson, to show him the unsightly, ghastly consequences of what alcohol does to a body. Leave out the argument bit on the way home last night, and definitely try to erase the memory of you beatboxing, old school style, and telling him that rap was better in the old days.

Then say something about the apple not falling far from the tree.

I did Martin, I actually did. His words...

"Why are you doing this to me?" :D

I made him a cup of tea and some toast, well we're out of bread so I used some pitta breads that I found in the freezer with some peanut butter. His words...

"So dry!" and I've just had...

"Do hangovers last the whole day?" :D I don't think he'll be doing that again for a very long time.

:D My beatboxing was the evening's highlight!

It wasn't actually an argument, it was more getting him to walk the right way home, a five minute walk took twenty minutes! My mate has just been round to borrow my carpet cleaner as his lad was sick on their one month old carpet. Apparently they'd sneaked a load of cider up into his room.

People that have absolutely no idea of the size of their car.
My old man once told me a story about Sterling Moss driving through a gap at 100mph with only 6inches to spare on eiither side of his car. Now I'm not expecting any motorist to copy that, but when you feel compelled to make sure that 6 inches is replaced by 5ft I would question your competancy.
I have just followed a car that broke every time a car came towards him, making exagerated swings to the left, even though there was ample room. Bloke was either incompetent, or a c**t.

I like the drivers who brake as they go through width restrictions cause they think depressing the break pedal makes their cars narrower.

Don't know if it's still there, but there was one of those width restrictions in Hayes Lane in Bromley by Ravensbourne school. (Just did a Google Maps look, and it looks like they have modified it - made wider). Anyway, my cousin lent me their car while they were on holiday, and I buzzed through the gap on the way home from the airport after dropping them off... I didn't quite make it, and ripped one of the wing mirrors off.

Cue a trip to Bristol Street Motors for a quick purchase of a new one, and some touch up paint.

I never told them what happened, but my cousin thanked me for fixing there wing mirror... apparently the glass was cracked before I smashed it, and miraculously now it wasn't cracked!

Leopald Stotch 18-07-2020 06:45 PM

And to follow on from my earlier moan, decide to visit the dump before it closes. Some of you may know Jarvis Road, South Croydon. Vey narrow one way street, cars parked either side.
Turn into it to see a woman trying to reverse into a space on the drivers side. I'm estimating there would be 2ft either end of her car. Sit there why she tries 7 times to park. Then she gives up and notices a space further down the road on the passenger side. So she tries to give that one a go. Only problem is that it is significantly smaller than the one she has just failed to park in! If anything, a quick guestimate would lead me to believe the gap was actually smaller than her car.
Several failed attempts later she angrily waves me past whilst diagonally half in/half out of the space. Thanks- the only problem is my car is not capable of breathing in!! And I'm guessing neither could the Scaffolding Lorry behind me!
I'm walking everywhere for the rest of the w/e.

Yes, depends on who's perspective, though.

Personally, I dislike Brasil more.

They are 'sing when you're winning fans'...

Well, the barra bravas that go week in and week out to the club games are obviously as passionate and crazy as any. But I am referring to the twonks that turn up at WC games and the like...no passion and indifferent when they lose. Fake euphorio and carnival celebration when they win.

Odd lot the Brasilians.

2002 Botofago vs Sau Paulo (I think)...maybe Botofago were leading the table. 10k fans in Maracana.

But your pundits and know-nothing commentators like them. Another one of the big sides.

Agreed - I think I may have called that out as a bugbear of mine too earlier in this topic. No doubt partly in response to all the little shits walking around in Barcelona and Madrid shirts. Similar thing happening also with Juventus. Glory hunting wankers.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

They have their place and you are allowed to put one into a local body but do people not think they are taking the piss when their one request is actually in excess of 50 different questions, all requiring a significant data extract which in turn could require a significant amount of redaction?

The worst offenders seem to be those who think public bodies are inefficient or those that complain that public bodies take too long to execute their duties. Don't these people realise they are not helping?

Why is this a problem? I've got to effectively shut down COVID-19 response for a fortnight because the FOIA takes precedence. What a really good use of resources during a global pandemic and economic catastrophe.

Dear Averity

My good self has had this issue and it is darned annoying:wallbash::wallbash:
Used a product which smelt of citrus and this had little effect.Purchased "Doff Super" and it appeared to have done the trick as there was no excreta for a number of days but to my horror my good lady wife informed me today that there were 2 dollops on our pristine verdant grass and I threw my hands up in disgust whilst uttering some expletives.We do not have a 'Moggy' so it is someone's else's ruddy animal.:veryangry:veryangry:veryangry

Someone ought to tell him it doesn't keep the foxes away. It's a myth.

Dear DaveCH

Foxes haven't caused us the grief as they could not possibly climb over the high fences.Definitely a white 'Moggi' as my good lady wife peered out of the window in the middle of the night and there was a white cat in the garden, it was easy to see in the dead of the night owing to it's colour.This cat IS the culprit:wallbash::wallbash: To whom this animal belongs I know not.:grrr:

Dog owners (and yes I am one myself)
Due to Covid, I'm having to juggle our daughter 2 days a week as we felt we'd keep her off nursery until September at the earliest. As a result I walk our dog/daughter at 6.30am to avoid heat/parks getting too busy.
Today my daughter wanted to sit down (it's a large park, takes you 20 mins to walk round the outside) we were sat there talking and minding our own and we saw a dog walker approaching with 3 dogs instead of walking around us, they walked straight towards us and the dogs (who were off the lead) started barking and got ever closer to my daughter who got distressed. Juggling a child/dog isn't easy at the best of times, and those immortal words every ******* dog owner mutters "my dogs are pretty placid, they won't hurt her"

I gave it back and in no uncertain terms told them to get them away as you're upsetting my daughter, but of course i'm the bad guy and said if I couldn't look after my child/dog I shouldn't be at the park.

A broken dinner plate, a tube of superglue, an open bottle of nail polish remover, a cotton wool ball, and two sheets of kitchen towel paper... all on my nice oak stained and varnished desk... I think we know how this went!

Nah, It's doing no harm and he does not get out much.

Well he managed to get out 2 dollops on his pristine verdant grass.

Dear West Country Boy

I am the "Trolley" of old, same chappie (Singular) not a "Cabal" as has been ludicrously alleged.My fences are somewhat 'north' of the one in the video and to this day my good self has not witnessed any fox leaping like a salmon and scaling such high structures.It is that ruddy white 'Moggy' which my good lady wife saw in the dead of night.:wallbash::wallbash:It has been suggested that I cut some rough branches from rose bushes and scatter them in the areas that keep being affected.Bloody nuisance.:grrr::grrr:
