Share the annoyance.

Tonight I'm mainly annoyed by a neg rep which makes no sense whatsoever. Apparently I should be consulting with salad burnett before posting anything.

Late nights changing the lyrics to The Special AKA's 'Free Nelson Mandela'.

Maz and Biggins do not scan well, so currently am in talks with the mods that they free them both and ban Nelson Muntz and El Aguila instead so I can protest through the medium of song.

It is, and mine too.

Bet all the mods hate it, and every night they get together and re-enact the day Nelson Mandela was sent to Robben Island, singing sea shanties while getting drunk on cheap South African wine.

The bastards.

Or should I be questioning your ability to read? :p

I would suggest that the one operating the big coffee machine is the one making it and the one standing by the till, asking for your money is "the one taking the money" Or should we question your ability to see?

Two things on Radio 4 just now with a thick Yank
Kept talking about 'people of colour' when talking about slavery
Then several times said about the 'error' we are living in rather than 'era'

John Humphries should have certainly asked him what he was going on about, but with Trump error might have been what he meant?

'John Humphries', 'should have certainly asked...'
A couple of errors of your own there, as you're being so picky.

Shoot them.

Shoot them all.

Slowly. With a blunt bullet.

ExiledStirling 04-05-2017 09:13 PM

Could not find my voting card, but knowing it did not matter, got in the car to go to my usual polling station. It was shut. Saw two others walking down to vote, told them the place was shut and to check their voting cards. They were meant to go to the place that is about a 50 yard walk from me, and the polling station I have often wondered why I am not allocated to go to. I thought finally someone has seen sense. I gave them a lift down and parked my car by my place and took the short walk, only to be told it was not the polling station I could put my 'X'. Instead I needed to jump in my car and drive a mile to where my 'new' polling station is. I gave up on my democratic right at this point.

The ludicrous sycophantic coverage about a racist colonialist who is deciding to do even less in his highly privileged lifestyle as if this will have any effect on the survival of the nation.
Strange timing also as it will not happen until autumn. Predictably a Labour Ex Mp has ,'unleashed fury' a daily Mail term for suggesting he is a very fortunate 95 year old compared to many others living in poverty.

Things that annoy you
 
******* horror show today, but i managed to keep it together.

They had us "presenting" our mock "Account plans " one by one to the group who had been asked to be overly critical of the presentations to get you used to presenting to a crowd.

Yes, presenting to a group of people you detest who are picking holes in your presentation for the sake of picking holes in it.

Once that was complete they insisted we them spend the next 5 minutes shaking hands and thanking each other for the constructive criticism.

If i had a sharp object in reach i think i'd be looking at 20 life sentences this evening.

Next 3 days are in June. **** knows what fun and games they have in store.

There is also a chap who wears his mobile phone in a belt holster.

This annoys me greatly.

Been there done it got tee shirt

Still have to do it occasionally but avoid if possible

It's infuriating. Makes you wonder how some of these people hold a job down

And don't get me started on the trainers / presenters / management consultants or whatever they masquerade as

It's got me wondering if I'm just a miserable ****, or an alien.

The rest of the group are having blast; high-fiving their way through the day, "buddying up" "networking" and "sparring".

That said, theres an even number of us on the course, so some ****, other than me, went home without a "buddy"



Good.

Also the ones where the film has no tab or edge to grip to pull it off, forcing you to use said knife to stab it and pull the shreds off. ******* bollocks.

Slide a small pair of scissors into the hole and gently 'trap' the offending drawstring and extricate carefully.

Simply go on a full-on Big Mac and beer diet until you fill out the necessary waistage required to render the drawstring thingy obsolete.

People that pronounce the letter H as 'Haitch'.

I got into a row with one of my 10 year old son's mates the other day about that, which I'm not proud of.

Whilst on the subject of language, when did 'named after' get replaced by the nonsensical 'named for'? As in 'the building was named for John Doe, who died in 1656'

How aptly named. Cameron was right to oppose his appointment. He tends to epitomise much of what is wrong with the EU.

Suddenly he doesn't like our food or our language. How childish!

If he was voted in as the best man for the Commission's top job, what must the rest of the applicants have been like. Probably says a lot about the EU.

Painting the flat, down to the last room. Have 3 x 10 litre tubs left. 1 salmon pink, approx 3 litres left, 1 garish fecking horrible yellow, maybe 4 litres left, and one pure white, maybe 2 litres left. Not enough in the salmon pink to do the remaining three walls, can't remember which code I used to get the mix in the shop. Tried pouring some pink in the yellow to get it to turn orange, didn't make feck all difference. Now got even less pink than before and my trainers more pink than before. Current solution is to go to the pub and watch Palace.

How aptly named. Cameron was right to oppose his appointment. He tends to epitomise much of what is wrong with the EU.

Suddenly he doesn't like our food or our language. How childish!

If he was voted in as the best man for the Commission's top job, what must the rest of the applicants have been like. Probably says a lot about the EU.

Not enough in the salmon pink to do the remaining three walls, can't remember which code I used to get the mix in the shop. Tried pouring some pink in the yellow to get it to turn orange, didn't make feck all difference. Now got even less pink than before and my trainers more pink than before. Current solution is to go to the pub and watch Palace.

Draw a horizontal line dividing your walls into a top half and a bottom half.

Paint one half salmon pink, and the other half garish yellow.

You will then have walls which look like those old fashioned rhubarb and custard boiled sweets.

If nothing else, it's a talking point for visitors.

I sorted it in the end, chucked the pink into the white then added bits of yellow till it turned a decent colour. Mind you im wary of claiming anything is decent after trainer- gate.

All well and good until something marks the wall in a year's time and you need to touch it up for some reason. Make sure you keep some spare in an airtight container!

That also sounds like the racing colours of the Earl of Rosebery, and the colours in which Epsom & Ewell FC played once upon a time.

Still a surprising amount left, but I ran out of time before doing the cutting in and second coat.

...or just Martin Keown.

He's got nothing on Gordon Brown's gasping fish impression.

Modern electronic devices that insist on turning themselves on when ALL you want to do is charge them.

Waiting to go home but having to wait for someone who insists on doing just one more thing before I go. It will still be there tomorrow!!!!

Useless without pictures.

Come on EE you know it makes sense.....:D

Yoda 10-05-2017 08:06 PM

Yes, photos required.

From the description Elgin has given, I'm imagining walls that are the colour of pig skin!

Same here (usually a quarter)... one will get you 3 tires and so you have to put a second quarter in for the last wheel, thus leaving 60% of time unused.

I think last time they were also charging for water.

Why does this always happen at about 3am when the damn things start to bleep loudly? They never seem to do this during the day.
