Totally smashed my rigid preconceptions of Worksop. If he wasn't such a blinding geezer i'd be equally annoyed since my cooking skills amount to cheese on toast with bits of tomato on top.

Ah yes, the old Paisley Pizza.

Go into a decent size chemists and buy a pair off the shelf?

Probably won't be a perfect match for your needs, but could be better than nothing and they can be surprisingly cheap.

Friend of mine bought an emergency pair for a similar reason and raved about them. He's now a convert and has several spares (e.g. in car, office, bag) and only buys one 'proper' pair when he has his check-up.

One of his fave pairs cost 1!

I think they might have been initially and reading glasses are more commonly available (e.g. in libraries).

The worst culprit is the actress (and I use that word in its loosest term) who plays Tracy Barlow. It's school drama class level.

Haven't watched that shite for years (plus the X Factor and pals muck) and thank the jesus for it. Miserable Northern bastards.

People who come into the 'quiet room' at work when I'm resting my eyes. First someone wants to know if I'll drive a train for them. No I say, I'm fecked, and when I asked you last year you turned me down. Then someone else comes in for a health and safety check (not of me). Then another bloke who I've already texted to say I'll do a favour for later on gets his mate to burst in and hand me the phone. Grrr.

Spot on, the mixture of materials is madness.

Bought a sandwich on Friday....cardboard wrapper could be recycled in paper box but the plastic film you look through to see your sandwich could not.

So I peeled the film away and still recycled the card. But how many customers can be bothered to do that, especially if they're eating their sandwich on the move?

There should be far more pressure on the stores to reduce waste in the first place, not just on us end users and the councils to deal with the waste.

For example, I wonder what percentage of the landfill used by Croydon is those thousands of takeaway coffee cups? It sounds like a recyclable one is close to manufacture and there should be pressure on the coffee chains to use it. If not, increase their rates.

Rugby fans who repeatedly tell us they are just a bunch of fun loving people. Travelling home on Saturday on the last north bound service from Euston, we saw just how fun they were. Pissed up, vomiting and just being general wankers towards any woman within shouting distance.
Arrived at Stafford and 30 or so spilled out onto the platform in a mass punch up.
If this had been football fans then they would be preaching about how bad and scummy we are, but as they prefer wonky shaped balls it's all just a jolly laugh. Bunch of wankers!

In my experience, all of them do this, unless they are people who follow both sports.

They also hate it that football gets more coverage. I've watched some rugby but I just don't find it that good to watch...it's stop/go all the time and too often decided by the ref for technical infringements and penalty kicks. I appreciate football matches are sometimes decided by a penalty, but that's a minority.

I guess rugby doesn't flow enough for my taste, but each to their own.

As for behaviour, the drinking and verbals can be terrible. But the advantage they have over football is that it's much rarer for team rivalry to spill into organised battles, in the way 'firms' spoilt football in the past.That's what gets the press, and police, attention.

Saturday was the annual army v navy game at Twickenham. It's probably the worst weekend for local residents in terms of unsocial behaviour and not representative of rugby crowds as a whole.

Found myself in a costa for the 1st time in ages and I noticed they claim their cups can be recycled if brought back and they will even take competitors cups. I asked the barista about it and she simply said yeah they could recycle now but didn't know how it all worked.

Anyway back to my anger offload of the day.

Parents and coaches at kids football matches. Its not ******* Wembley. Let the kids play. they don't need to be told to "get up there" or "get in there". You don't need to scream as if Philips had got us promoted when a goal is scored. Think of how the other 6 year olds on the opposing team feel? I'm sure it wasn't as bad as this when my lad first started playing.

Them c*nts who walk into pubs for the first time, usually ones without a non-beer glass in sight, and ask for a mojito or a martini or some other stupid cocktail, without even asking if the place has a cocktail menu.

People who call a shop assistant in a coffee shop a "barista". :D

On a similar theme, this happened to me last week in Nottingham

Getting stood behind a group of girls and/or students ordering cocktails. Do you know how fkin long it takes to make 7 cocktails.....And then paying for them individually ffs.

Childrens birthday parties. I've got to take my lad both Saturday and Sunday, slap bang in the middle of the day. The whole weekend dissected by loitering around for 2/3 hours waiting for them to finish. It's the Sunday lunch/afternoon one that p!sses me off, this is designated for red wine and napping.

I like the fact that more cars have lights on all the time reduces the number of people driving around in dark or low visibility conditions with no lights on

Just walked out of that course. Might say i was feeling unwell.


Can't take the level of bollocks being banded about.

Must spread rep etc, but fair play to you. You could always say the utter bollocks being spouted made you feel nauseous ...

She's working all weekend :veryangry. There is light at the end of the tunnel though, the Saturday party would mean we'd miss the beginning of the game - I can't see him being happy about that, or the fact that he might have to walk 10 miles home, because I'm not going to miss it :D. Children shmildren.

It was when we were all asked to stand in a circle and throw a ball to each other, then whoever caught the ball had to say what they enjoyed most from that segment.

My spine nearly snapped with rage.


Apparently we should all be "networking" with each other and should also pick a "sparring partner" for the remainder of the course.

****.


Off.

Joe85 03-05-2017 09:24 PM

I've also been told i have to go back tomorrow by my manager.

I'll giving a running commentary of buzzwords throughout the day. It maybe the only thing that keeps me sane.

How do you determine the difference between the one that takes the money and the one that makes the coffee then? I think the big clue might be the bloody great BARISTA label on their back vrs the others that doesn't have it.
Or should I be questioning your ability to read? :p

Ffs. How bastard annoying is this?

Particularly when self employed and either me or the Mrs. is at work.

You choose the basket only queue at the supermarket cos you want to be quick (and there's a queue for the self-service).

Man in front hands a fist full of store vouchers to the cashier and asks 'are any of these any good?'. She patiently checks them (why didn't he first?), politely says 'sorry no, they're not in date'...and THEN he starts checking through them himself. WTF.

Swimming galas have got to be the worst.

Hot, often lacking in wifi and lots of screaming noise...you WILL leave with a headache every time. Sitting for ages because your child's races are always spread out, so you're there for hours for maybe 3 thirty second long races.

They were exciting initially, but as the kids get older the parents get increasingly competitive and I've witnessed some questionable parenting when their kids lose. Never mind football parents, some of the swimming ones really suck the enjoyment out of the sport.
