I hope fans are allowed in the ground when we play them at home because if there's one person on the planet who really needs to have his head flushed down the Selhurst Park bogs it's Harry the Halfwit. We'd probably better get a new eagle in time for that as well.

Hearing Aphrodite's Child's 'Four Horsemen' being used in a f*cking car advert.
I will be hunting down the marketing wonk responsible for that, and nailing their head to the wall.

I remember when I was a kid and I was at the top of the slide and a dog took a big fat shit halfway down the slide. Cue all of the kids turning around and going back down the steps. :supergrin:

I did break my wrist on a scooter coming down Blythe Hill lane with a failed drifting type manoeuvre at the Blythe hill intersection which hit the curb or wall. Pushing the scooter back one-handed to Elsinore is where the transition into manhood must have begun.

No. The park-keeper was a miserable she rather than he and she used a rag. We all went urgh and avoided the slide for while. No-one wanted to be the first on the slide after her attempt at a polish - there would have been loads of shit molecules left behind :supergrin:

Adventure playgrounds were a level above. Regularly had a fire going in them, with toddlers scampering around. Wasn't unusual to see a three year-old in the 'care' of an eight year-old sibling, while mum went to the shops/pub. Supervision was minimal. Happy days.

Sitting on an original skateboard ie. A bit of wood nailed to an old fashioned skate done up with a carpet tile and backrest coming down the hill to Codrington Hill. The brake was the heels of now ruined plimsolls. The emergency brake was a bit of wood across the path that stopped the skate but threw you across the pavement and into the road.

As young teenagers that should of known better, there was a see-saw in the local park, and one mate was sitting on one end, so being the idiots we were a couple of us grabbed the other end and violently got the thing going up and down with mate hanging on for dear life. Needless to say he lost his grip and whacked his eyebrow on the handle... blood everywhere!

I don't recall what we did, but I know he ended up with some stitches, and still has the scar today some 50 years later.

I had two tins in the estate part of the car as I was trying to fix the rear window wiper and stop the glass lid keep opening itself.

One was electric contact spray and the other WD, ******* great big mist assumed something had somehow fallen on the electrical spray and turned it on as it had a big button took a breath closed my eyes grabbed it threw it out then looked back and was engulfed in spray so did the same with the now expired tin of WD. It was slow motion and recall the rather bizarre thought process at what had happened!

Sub £2 a 500ml bottle of real ale in Supermarkets, why pay £4/5 in a pub for real,ale? Madness that pubs are putting up prices when so many were closing down before Covid.

I think that the British holiday industry may well shoot itself in the Summer. This summer more Brits will holiday in the UK because of the uncertainty about travelling abroad. Its an opportunity for the home holiday industry to attract people for years to come. But they won't, price's will go through the roof and people who holiday in the UK this year will go abroad again next year.

My daughter and her partner have just returned from the Cotswolds after a few days R&R. She said they couldn't get 2 drinks in any pub for under a tenner and coffee £3 minimum in the Cafes.

I am thinking more along the lines of 'your round' on match days.

If you are in a fair sized group that is an expensive round. I suppose it is the same for all buying. But what is, say, 7 pints in the Cherries or Clifton pre or post match. 35 quid, 40 quid.

Better to get happy on a bottle of wine each in the street. 1 before, 1 after ...fairly good stuff 12 to 15 quid each.

Will certainly give the Palace bars a swerve.

If I still had my house on Whitehorse Lane, I would be inviting BBSers to BYOB for pre and post game imbibings..Fill the fridge up, and have a disco after.

I'm not going there, but I was just reading that car hire/rental cost in Hawaii has gone through the roof.

They sort of have you by the balls, as there is little or no public transport there, and not many hotels offer pick up from the airport.

Apparently they are recouping money lost during the lock-down, as I'm sure many industries are. I don't see hotels reducing cost to reflect reduction is service or amenities.

Pretty sure prices wont be coming back down when/if things get back to normal in the near future.

Vendy 26-04-2021 06:04 PM

If you want to see annoying extraordinary price increases look no further than the big Sea Freight compaines $9500+ for 40ft. The costs will be filtering down to a store near you soon!

A bit of context it was about $1500-$3000 depending on seasonal uplifts.

Think I will postpone my re-boot!

Unless the quality of the beer is tip top people will vote with their feet.

I get people buying a pint of draught Guinness or a pint of real Ale as itís distinctly superior to a can, but £6 for a pint of Stella or Peroni.... **** that.

I had a wonderful few pints of Surrey Nirvana on Saturday night at my cricket club. £2.70 a pint.:)

cross_eyed_ed 26-04-2021 07:33 PM

People who have made block bookings in pubs and restaurants over the next few weeks on the basis that they may or may not decide to turn up, which means the rest of us have very limited options for a spur of the moment pint/meal.

The simple solution would be to charge say a £5 per person deposit.

And, also as has been previously mentioned here, the uptick in beer prices which is short sighted/outrageous.

Worksop Palace 26-04-2021 07:42 PM

£3.90 for Carling now in my only local that’s open. Was £3.65 before lockdown. One of few pubs that are open at the moment and a decent beer garden, so they can get away with it. Come 17th May, they’ll be struggling if they continue to charge that. £4.50 for Estrella or San Mig, which is still very pricey for where we are but represents better value than £3.90 for Carling.

I think people have got used to buying decent beer for £1 a can/bottle and drinking at home. Once the rush and excitement of going to pubs again wears off, I think you’ll see some pretty empty boozers. I’m certainly just as happy to sit in my garden with a fivers worth of San Mig than paying almost that for one pint.

To be fair, upon further review, it appears a case of supply and demand. Many (if not all) rental companies sold off a huge percentage of their vehicles to subsidize keeping in business. Now the tourist are returning they have insufficient cars to rent out.

To rent a car is costing more than your hotel room a day.

TV programmes (and films) where the takeaway coffee cups are blatantly empty.

It's bad enough when they get waved around or nearly tipped upside down on sip one, but even worse when you can hear the hollow clunk when they get put down.

Adult who push kids in buggies out into the road while waiting to cross. What f*cking idiots.

Sci Fi films where you can here the weapons being fired even though they are in outer space and there is no sound.

The wife calls it the poo poo rule, as in I am not allowed to poo poo the movie/tv show whilst we are watching it.

Do you watch sci fi films and say "well that'd never happen!"?

Oh go on... just one...

The Expanse - oft mentioned as a sci-fi tv show that has tried more than most to get the laws of physics correct, for example, spaceships moving from left to right on the screen but with the rockets firing in the wrong direction - they are braking/shedding delta v, but then show the crew round a table eating regular looking food out of regular bowls with no issues of weightlessness.

My 2nd favourite team in the top 4 divisions, Bristol Rovers, being relegated.

The random & nonsensical shortenings of football team names on BT Sport. They have it as PAR vs MCI. Surely PSG vs MCY makes more sense? Or PSG vs MAN.

Quest are just as bad. Cheltenham Town vs Cambridge United. CHE vs CAM, you’d think. No, they’d use something like CNT vs CBU....

Rice prices in takeaways. May hell grain on you.

You hoping to get a ticket? Plan travel arrangements etc?

Sainsburys have just stopped doing free delivery for orders over £100. I give them about £500 every month for shopping yet they still want to grub 3 or 4 extra quid for the delivery. Very annoying.

It's the whole company. Homebase, over the last bank holiday, decided to change their opening hours without changing it on their website (or on the door). So muggins here turns up a 7.15pm (along with a fair few others) at the shithole that is Hove to find it closed. They also can't even be bothered to respond to emails, that's the regard they have for their customers. Wankers

Agree. I also get annoyed by small rice portions in restaurants/takeaways. You're charging me £3 for rice, at least give me enough to fill me up.

EDIT - just checked and the curry I ordered at the weekend charge £3.75 for plain white rice. Bit steep. The small portion means I normally just make my own whilst I wait for it to arrive and spend the rice money on something bread or sides.

Skin on fries on virtually every bloody menu these days.

Look you lazy chef bastards, just peel them properly please.

Prince Phillip 29-04-2021 01:27 PM

Been done before on here I think, but there seems to be an upsurge of ridiculously contrived & jumbled "personalised" number plates. If it takes the proud owner 5 minutes to describe that somehow, somewhere in there it says "Sue" or "Dave", then they've really missed the point.

Stellavista 29-04-2021 01:30 PM

The self-entitled woman who asked me to move my car from a paid parking spot because she'd run up the maximum stay in her spot over the road. F**k off.

Archiebald Leitch 29-04-2021 01:35 PM

I saw an Aston Martin yesterday with number plate: EA6LEB. It looked like Eagle 8 but I couldn’t be sure. It annoyed me.

Peloton adverts, if I hear you’ve got this one more time I’ll need a new t.v
