Shame what Costa has become. I can remember the small place that served coffees is the old arcade near allders in the whiftgift centre.

They were coffees to die for!

Yet the second we make a comment about feeling rough or having a cold it's Manflu and we're acting like babies :wallbash:

The only people who get Man flu are women.

What also annoys me is its use to somehow shame someone into going to work, I swear that if there ever is a worldwide killer epidemic, it will be spread, first and foremost by women.

The advert by boots a few years ago with the two women meeting on the street, clearly suffering from heavy colds, buying flu remedies for their husbands who are at home with "a bit of a sniffle". Well done for walking around town and spreading your ******* flu germs around the place, you stupid bitches!!

Today went with my soon to be 19 year old daughter to watch a 15 rated film at Bromley cineworld and turned away as she had no id with her.
Won’t go back there in a hurry.

Shit and porcelain toilets.

Why does shit always stick to the back of toilets? Surely in this day and age, they can produce a toilet where shit doesn’t stick to it.

The standard hourly charade with my cat. In he stalks crooning and purring, gets up on lap, tramples plums at least 3 times. Laps up five minutes of fuss before finally settling down with the odd gentle nuzzling and nibbling that suddenly turns into full on alligator snapping. Claws come out as he gets tetchy, gets the arse when i untangle him from another plucked to **** jumper. Streaks off to the other sofa for a half hour cool down, only to return to repeat the same scene when ready. Little bastard of the highest order.

Use the Styles list. Apply styles to your text - Different Headers or Normal text are listed by default but you can create some based on existing styles.

If you decide to change all the font text from times to arial - change the font in the style normal and apply. All the text with the style normal applied is changed.

Your created new Styles are only per that document - unless you use that document to create a document template - so every new document from the template can use those styles.

Copy an old document of yours and practice.

Some recent travel related annoyances

TripAdvisor allowing hotels to bump up their 'favourite' (5 star) reviews onto the first review page.

Waiting for a plane or train toilet to vacate and when you walk in the seat and floor have been peed all over.

Boarding a plane in designated groupings and the people who try to join early despite fully reserved seats (at least at one airport they actively threw out early boarders out of the queue...a joy to watch!).

Hotel receptionists who ask 'have you stayed here before? Prior to actually finding you your room on the system. This is code speak for 'If you say No then I am going to give you a room less nice than the one you have actually booked'. This has happened a few times to me.

People who press lift buttons then think its their personal lift and crash into those trying to leave the lift at the same floor.

People who dive at a closing lift or other automatic doors when another one will be along in a few minutes. Saw someone at Gatwick run and dive for the closing Shuttle door and injure their shoulder a couple of weeks ago doing this.

Being ill on holiday :(

People who rush for the tube and get stuck doing that also really annoy me. There is usually another tube about a minute later and it holds up the tube from leaving when they get stuck. To make it worse they always smile as well as though it is terribly amusing. It isn't, you're just an impatient idiot.

Lift etiquette also annoys me particularly when people use it to go up one floor. Despite probably spending a lot of money on gym membership they can't be bothered to walk one flight of stairs.

The fantastic winter of 63/63? So many postponements and unbelievable today the south east was worst effected.

PeterH 18-02-2018 03:24 PM

On the plane boarding thingy. It amuses me rather than annoys. People who start queueing well before they have even started boarding. Standing there like lemons for 20 minutes. Outside of people with kids and the infirm, what is the rush. I always wait until the last few are getting on. TBF I dont have loads of hand luggage to store.

In any case, arsewipes on planes has been done to death on here. As in twats who dont listen to instructions. Coming into land, stay in seats, but no they have to be told again to sit down.

The ‘constantly hungry’ comment rings alarm bells with me.

That happened with one of ours and we didn’t do anything until we noticed he was losing weight despite lots of grub.

Took him to the vet and he had developed an overactive thyroid.

Have to agree, got one at a petrol station for the first time ever yesterday, it was just froth, and the cup felt like it was empty. I drank it whilst waiting to pay for it behind one person, that's how tepid it was.

Never again, I'll stick to my bean to cup machine, with a nice bit of Sumatran dark roast.

Are you going to carry the bean to cup machine and all necessary ingredients around with you everywhere.

In Starbucks and the like, just get a regular American coffee, and ask them to add a touch of milk. It's not difficult.

It is a mystery though. They have so many packs of coffee to sell, which must be pretty good stuff, yet can't prepare a decent cup with professional machines. Their main customer base must love hot milk.

Perhaps some BBSers should get together and launch a hot milk chain. We would make a killing, until people realised they were drinking strong coffee with a hint of milk.

I'm afraid your disqualified there, its because of hand luggage that us lemons have to queue up ages before boarding opens, otherwise when you get to your seat all the overheads are full and you have to go about 20 r0ws back to find a space, then, when you land, you have to sit like the infamous lemon until you can move back to get ones bloody hand luggage.

Insurance brokers. Got a renewal quote for £650 and thought it a bit high.Looked on a comparison site and got a quote for pretty much the same cover for £290. Went back to broker who said they could drop to £570. I asked him why he could not find one like I did and he said they didn't use all the insurance companies available. Iv'e been with this broker for around 8 years, needless to say I won't be using them again.

They also hate it because suddenly their personal gopher is out of action. How inconvenient!

Having unfortunately lived with women all my life, I have to say no one complains more about being ill or feeling a pain here, there and bleeding everywhere than a bloody woman!

And if I hear this line one more time I think I’m going to end it all...

‘I just wish...just once...you can have a period and know how bad it feels!’

People who say ‘My Bad’

They sound like a 5 year old who has spilt some milk. I think it is a way of deflecting blame by marginalising it as ‘bad things happen, whoops’

It’s a disgusting phrase.

Whenever someone says it it just makes me think that they can’t think for themselves. They’ve just become a talking sheep.

Try living in a house where your daughter is starting periods and your wife is starting menopause.......

Ha! I knew someone would say that. The options for a 12 o'clock fixture are noon/midday/12pm (all three being the same thing) or midnight/12am (both being the same thing).

'12 noon' is not an option. Nobody says '12 midnight' so why say '12 noon'?

If there's one thing to make my blood boil, it's this. Or 'automatic' doors that don't open quickly enough. :p:p:p

Psychiatrist: ‘at what age did this start?’

‘About 12.’

The Premier League
People on their phones in the gym (be it texting, social media or taking calls)
Pot hole repairs that last a week. :wallbash:

Especially when they are sitting on a piece of equipment you´re wating to use.

Isn’t Monday the new Sunday and Friday the new Thursday for people who struggle to actually do a full weeks bleeding work?

Nobody bloody works Fridays anymore. Great for traffic in the morning, less so for contacting people.

I work 7 days a week. Normally for 7 or 8 weeks before I take a day off.

Hedgehog 19-02-2018 06:55 PM

I retired at the beginning of the year, and one thing that has really surprised me is the amount of people out and about during the day. I appreciate people work shifts, weekends thus having days off during the week, work from home, or are between jobs, unemployed or on disability... but it still was a shock to me.

Nobody works Mondays any more either.

Can I add to the Friday 'ghost town' effect at work, people 'working from home'

There's a guy at work with a toddler, and his Mum looks after this child 4 days out of 5. On Fridays he 'works from home'

Yeah right!

Would love someone to measure how much work he does equivalent to other days. I'd wager 50%

Don't get me wrong, people who work from home 100% of the time usually have an office set up, and crack on with it, but this is just working from your kitchen table in between sorting out the child and other stuff.

Everyone works too much anyway. Good for him and his child if he spends Friday’s with them.

Getting chewing gum on the white wall sides of my trainers.

Grrrr, i hate flying.

But then you just add hand luggage abusers to the list of flying twats. I am all for airlines getting stricter with carry on allowances.
