This. The problem is however usually resolved by one of the following methods. 1. Get up on the premise of getting something out of the overhead cabinets and give them a hefty accidental shove. 2. Even better if somebody on your row needs to get out, a whack in the back is inevitable. When they predictably look round remain unmoved and "unaware" of your actions. Don't try this if the culprit looks capable of killing you though.

I'm flying back to England tomorrow, being over 6 foot every flight is a literal pain with the ******* inch of leg room you get unless you pay an extra 100 notes to get the emergency exit. Then when you're boarding there is a ******* toddler there! What extra leg room does a 2 year old need?!?

I thought you had to be at least 16 and be able to say you are capable and willing to help in the case of an emergency?

As someone who is 6' 2" I get the exit rows a lot (without paying extra). Have you ever asked when you check in if there are any available?

This does my bloody nut in!!! I'm always screaming 'shut up!' at the screen.

And you know it's not about their support of the player they're shouting about either - oh no! it's just a big 'LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!' ego trip while they're putting off the player they're supposedly supporting - usually at the most crucial moment of the game.

So basically that player has sweated blood and tears day in day out all their career to get themselves into that situation, only to have some self obsessed talentless good for nothing nerd interrupt their focus at one of the the more crucial moments of their career.

I actually fantasise while I'm watching a match about having these people forcibly ejected.

Wimbledon is so posh it stands out. The other slams have quite raucous crowds at times so you don't notice it as much. It's live sport at the end of the day so unless someone is being a complete dick then the players have to expect some heckling and badly timed support.

Obviously someone who wasn't too tight to pay for the extra legroom. Anyway, the crew should move a toddler away from the exit seats as they also do for the elderly and infirm. A toddler can't open the exit.

Also, airlines don't charge an extra ton for the exit seats. Certainly BA don't and I fly with them to Bulgaria.

Most airlines let you select a seat for free up to 24 hours before departure. I generally find that there is the odd exit seat to be found. You do need to know the layout of the plane as well.

Do they really not know it?

Personally I'd find it pretty embarrassing when the camera sweeps along the line of players and picks up my dulcet tones. So I'm not sure I'd sing it either.

I probably would if the whole team was, but not on my own.

Nope. We arrived in Hanoi to find our toilet blocked. They sent a maid up to unblock it with her hand and when cleared, she told us in no uncertain terms what to do with the paper. I'm a plumber by trade, but that will be with me for the rest of my life.

In most toilets in SEAsia you're supposed to wash your arse with the water gun and use the paper as a final wipe and dry, putting it in the bin when you're done.

Motion sensor lights in toilets. I’m all for saving the planet but no sooner have I sat down for a number 2 in Tesco’s motion sensor toilets, the lights go out. And it’s not a dull glow for the exit sign but pitch black. What’s annoying was that I was in the middle of a motion so I believe these sensors are incorrectly labelled.

Fortunately, I was able to complete a line of ‘stand up if you love Palace’ and this, together with the BBS on my phone, brought enlightenment to me.

I'd be careful about that.

When our local BP changed to include M&S, I moved from the pump to a parking spot within the garage forecourt to allow the person behind to use the pump whilst I did a quick shop.

When I reached the till a few minutes later, the staff were already making notes about my car, the time, the 'unpaid' petrol bill and were going to report me!

I pointed out the queues both outside and in the shop and explained that I'd moved to the side in a polite attempt not to hold up others. I also hadn't left the property but been in their shop the whole time.

The staff confirmed they didn't want drivers to do this.....so since then I haven't. I also kept hold of the till receipt for some time, half expecting I'd need to prove I had paid the petrol bill when plod knocked on my door!

Add in the idiots that stand pressing the train door buttons before they are lit up. It's not going to open until the driver is ready no matter how many times you press it.

For the vast majority of crossings the button does nothing- its a placebo.

Being the young 'millennial' at work, meaning I'm apparently some sort of technology wizard and also a great judge of what is 'cool'.

No problem, happy to share top tips for taping the Top 40 off the radio as well, even better now it is on Radio 2's FM frequency. A few to kick off - Not sure what the fuss about Chrome Dixide is, but TDK are reliable and always use pause, not stop, when recording.

By the way, is your profile pic actually one of my school bag from 1980?

It's actually a pic of one our very own Dorking eagle was crowing about finding on another website. I was looking for a picture of an earlier version from 1979, and came across it on a Google search.

Chris Sophie x shamelessly ripped it off I think ;)

iirc (and I probably don't) mine was also white, but had crystal palace along the top, or possibly along a sash. Just remember it was class, and pissed all over all the wanky Liverpool bags that were all the rage at the time. Think my mum got it in a sports shop in Bromley.

I had one for school in what would have been about 1979/1980ish. From memory the eagle on the club crest was very wonky.

BUT as has been said, it was still a million times better than the kids who had Liverpool ones with long lists of all the years they'd won trophies along the side.

The one pictured I was very delighted to obtain from ebay a few years ago, and it is in stunning condition. Apologies if I was a little over enthusiastic about it, but it is a thing of beauty.

The club shop produced a weird 'bowling bag' last year with a similar design but long girly handles. Don't think they have sold many at all.

Yeah sounds like you had the same version as mine.

Companies pre authorising your card, then putting through the "actual" charge, and you having to wait for the pre authorisation amount to drop out. In the meantime you are denied access to your own money, GRRRRR
