Jacqui Oatley getting an MBE,a fairly good presenter,not a very good commentator,they seem to give these out like sweets these days. Still more deserving than Cordern and Ant & Dec though

Daytime TV positively discriminating to the point of nausea with overtly homosexual or lesbian couples on virtually every light entertainment programme. I can't remember the last programme I saw that didn't have a pair of queens or butch rug munchers on.

Attempting to pay my local vehicle tax by using their shiny new well advertised website only to find that they will levy a $14 fee for the pleasure (alternatively I can write a cheque and put it in the post for no fee to be processed by a town employee. :confused::confused:)

The Daily Mail website is a trove of such ineptitude. I know I shouldn't look at it but I can't help it. I don't think they have any editor function at all.

At first it thought she must have been pissed off at the person on the other eve of the phone but from my eves dropping it sounded more in jest. If you can saw 'shut your c*nt' in jest when on a packed commuter train.

The hostile version of 'You must be kidding'.

People slowing down from the speed limit just because they pass a speed camera.
The camera is there to catch you going over the limit.
You were going at the limit so why slow down - herberts

People who spend ages stirring their tea. It really doesn't need stirring for more than about 3-4 seconds. Some guy at work he other day was at it for about a minute. The noise...Ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding ding, etc. THAT'S ENOUGH!! CHRIST

As an electrician, I get somewhat aggravated when I'm asked if I can do a job and at the same time I'm told how long it will take. "It'll only take you 15 minutes". (i.e I want the job done but I don't want to pay for it). If you know what the job is and you know how long it'll take - you f****** do it then!

Dog owners that talk to/about their dog like it's a child.

Walking in our local NT park yesterday, early morning so nice and quiet, (apart from barking fkin dogs).

Then one dog walker passes another dog walker and the dogs sniff each other and all that malarkey. 'Come on Alfie', says one owner. 'Oooh Alfie, one of ours is an Alfie.' Screeches - 'Hiya Alfie, meet Alfie. The Alfie twins. So cute. Alfie walfie palfie dalfie. Ah bless. How long have you had him' Blah blah blah blah blah.

I'm getting into the habit of just leaving all of them on - I reckon that as their more energy efficient than the older ones I'm still quids in and I can actually see stuff without having to wait for a week before it's safe to move.

When receiving change at the till and they give you the coins first and then put the note and receipt on top of that. I want the note underneath so I can use it to funnell the coins into the relevant section of wallet and then be able to straighten the note out and put it in the notes\receipts section. Annoys me every time.

Ah, but when the note goes down first and the change piles up on top, you can get a slippy coins situation, which could result in coins on the floor.

This practice is positioned nicely between Japanese culture and a western human resources dept that hasn't yet been hit by cutbacks.
Surely the whole team building charade died out 10 or more years ago.
Inform the bitch in charge that people actually work from home in 2016.

It would be very hard to do pretty much any job I have had from home, not everyone is an office worker.

Yes, this!

Drives me nuts. Are these people so stupid and unaware of the disruption to the flow of pedestrians they are causing?! Or is it just plain selfishness.

On a similar theme, another bug bear are people handing out free newspapers etc in the middle of a busy place where people are walking. Couple of guys standing outside of Monument, right by the entrance, where there is already a restricted area due to building works. They just get engulfed by a sea of people and cause un necessary further blockages. Morons!

I had a couple of days in Chester and spent an evening in the 'Smokehouse', a US barbecue style restaurant.. alfresco, right on the river nice location etc, and the food was ok, beer marvelous and priced accordingly.. I ordered pulled pork & fries.
My meal arrived with the pork presented in a mess tin, the fries in a plant pot, a portion of slaw in a cup cake case with all 3 receptacles arriving on a plank of driftwood ..
Using any utensils with the mess tin produced a 'nails down a chalkboard' scraping effect which made for an uncomfortable experience. Service and staff were nice but please sort this ridiculousness out.

Ie the steps at the main entrance of Waterloo station or the people I saw earlier with a pram standing at the bottom of the ramp at platform one in East Croydon just chilling with their mobile phones.

Yes, yes, YES!

Goes double for those ignorant selfish f*ckwits who, upon exiting from baggage reclaim and finding themselves in the airport arrivals hall, immediately stop plumb in the middle of the exit gangways while they decide whether they want to take a pee or get a coffee at Costa.

There's people from six other flights who want to get home stuck behind you, you SOBs! :veryangry

My meal arrived with the pork presented in a mess tin, the fries in a plant pot, a portion of slaw in a cup cake case with all 3 receptacles arriving on a plank of driftwood ..
Using any utensils with the mess tin produced a 'nails down a chalkboard' scraping effect which made for an uncomfortable experience. Service and staff were nice but please sort this ridiculousness out.

When they come back to you after a couple of minutes to ask if everything is okay with your meal, ask them for a plate whilst giving them a disgruntled look. And don't tip.

Is there anyone who actually thinks serving food this way is a good idea?

T*ssers who bring bikes (including folding bikes) on commuter trains during the rush hours………ride the f**king thing.

Best action I’ve seen against these t*ssers was in France. I saw a passenger dismantle someone’s bike with a Swiss army knife while the owner was sitting reading their paper. When they came to get off in Nice, their bike was in bits by the exit door.

Long time friend of the family senior manager does old golfing buddy husband a favour and gives bitch a job, hiding bitch in a role completely unrelated to the bottom line.
A long time ago she stopped putting out for hubby and is going to make male folk in general pay for her persistant migraines and frequent insomnia.
A real delight to have around the place.
They just won't shut the f**k up about Lukey's toilet training and Teisha's offering to the tooth fairies. I'm trying to shed the effects of last nights 10 jars and bitch is moaning about a "synergy" issue within the department.
Needs pushing in front of oncoming traffic.

Wow. Just wow.

Fvck. Right off.

This new fan-dangled idea with selling houses that state 'buyers fees apply' which ultimately means they want the buyer to pay for THEIR estate agent fees. F--k off comes to mind. No matter how much I liked a house would I pay someone else's fees purely from the moral side more than anything else. Or I would just add the fee on top of the offer price, and tell them so!

I don't buy a car on Autotrader and hear the fella say when I look at it "you can pay for my edvert which you saw the car in too son".

Talk about taking the piss!

Yes, a hotel just outside Trowbridge in Wiltshire that I won't name just in case they feel uppity. Just put the meal on a plate so I can eat it normally, you plonkers.

It's so true I do menus for a bar/restaurant who serve chips in 'mini chip frying baskets'. Everyone just empties the c*nts onto their plates. Pointless waste of money for them to buy all those things. Might seem like a 'fun' idea at the time but think about it. People want their grub on a plate.

That reminds me there was once a curry house in Norwood Road that served every dish from 'the cracks of their arses'. F*cking shithole.

An equally effective treatment is when they announce at the tube station that the train won't leave until the bike is removed.

Going anywhere in the concourses of that stand is a nightmare.
