The fact that checkout staff in major supermarkets who aren't yet eighteen have to get a token thumbs up or little wink from someone who is 18 and earns an extra 50p an hour to sell me a bottle of wine or other alcohol. What is the point of that law other than to waste mine and other peoples f*cking time?!

Hedgehog 06-12-2015 01:53 AM

2 weeks prior I have ended up with a negative scores. A couple of friends in our league have been getting over 100+. I just don't see how they are doing it with all these wacky results - unless they are predicting them.

I'm at -10 so far this week despite getting 2 games score spot on.

When I was in Hawaii in the summer we stopped in a Supermarket and got some wine for the room. We both had to produce our ID at the checkout.

Why advertise Sky Movies during football? Even when the players haven't even walked off the pitch yet? Who gives a f*ck what film is on next week when you're watching football? Then playing Christmas music over the league table caption.

Actually maybe they have a point advertising the Muppets after Newcastle v Liverpool.

It really is isnt it. I went for every result 1-0 (statistically the most shortest odds scoreline), and backed the higher placed club in every case. Result -50 points.

Tell them to piss off. My boss bought a brand new Jag about 6 months ago, with 20k of extras that they forgot to bill him for, he told them tough and he got his car with all the extras, they did offer to give him 5k and cancel the order first though. He laught at them and used the mantra "Please check your change before leaving the shop as mistakes cannot be rectified later".

Good on him. To be honest i knew at the time they had fooked up, they forget to bill us for the arrangement fee for the mortgage. Was hoping they'd overlook it but it must have got audited. Paid it now anyway.

Parents using public spaces to demonstrate their excellent parenting skills.
You wanna help your child develop ? Then spend quality time helping them read and write properly, and talk proper too. Teach them some fckin manners. Get them to do some ****** exercise and put parent and child parking bays at the far end of the car park.

Productive time with your children is not putting on a public performance in;
The supermarket
The pub (WTF are they doing in pubs anyway ?)
Talking shjt to other parents outside school, whilst your 4x4 is parked on the pavement/school crossing.
The shopping Centre

When the parent talks to the child in a voice loud enough for others within a 20metre range to hear. Exaggerated body movements , comforting, embracing etc.

Whatever happened to the good old days of , "If you do that again, you'll get your legs slapped" ?

Table Table. I tried not to but it was the first restaurant I saw. Restaurant, that's a laugh. Wanted a pasta with sweet potato chips and some cheeky garlic bread. Got

Spinach risotto - which was very nice apart from burning my mouth off as it was stuck on a very small piece of china placed on a chopping board which wasn't going to help the heat escape.

COLD chunky chips served upright in some utensil. Probably cold to try to average out the burning pasta. And I am not some chav who picks up each chip on its own to dunk in the tom sauce thank you.

Cheesy garlic bread - which amounted to 3 pieces of thinly cut baguette bread with a hint of cheese. £3.99, you're avin a ******* larf.

Had to get my oversized plate out so I could put all my dinner in the same vicinity. We have evolved to eat off plates, not some old scoured wooden chopping board that no doubt contains unwanted bacteria. I shall not be returning to Unpalatable Unpalatable.
