Even though Sanogo gets significantly more game time, they've both contributed the exact same amount to the team's cause, so it's very easy to get confused about it all

They should be driving manuals IMO.... probably solve half the issues.

Few years back I was sitting in a line of traffic waiting for the lights to change. Looked to my right to see a car leaving a parking space across the road coming straight for me. Tried to pull forward to try and avoid it , but no dice stationary traffic. Any way the old dear had managed to get her foot stuck on the accelerator . As for driving manuals Ozz perish the thought , Don't think they could coordinate and look where they are going, And this aint an age rant as I am older than you mate.

Speaking of queue jumping......I do it every morning on the Brighton Road. The bus lane is in operation from 4pm - 7pm yet every morning everybody is sitting in a great big long queue.

I love it as I sail down the bus lane getting accusing looks.

Pillocks.

Yeah I've done that. I'm surprised that bus lane isn't full time as it only gets parked on at the weekend and f*cks everything up. Meanwhile the buses take half hour to get in to Croydon.

:rolleyes: late night tv scheduling. Time and time again a decent film starting at 11.40 or later is preceded by repeats in one or two cases repeat quiz shows. Bloody hell if you have seen it you know the bloody answers. Tonight after working you may want to watch Ascot highlights. Oh but before that we have repeat Gogglebox. A repeat of people watching what we have already seen then an hour of chaps who like to don rubber suits and look like women. If you can manage that you get to see Ascot at 12 bloody 40. Who he's these scheduling jobs. They should be made to watch Gogglebox for a fortnight.

Virgin Pissing Media sending me the same piece of junk mail five times in about a three month spell, disguised to look like something actually potentially important. The first three times it was an A4 size envelope with a fair amount of weight to it, that must have cost a bit to post as well.

For any company to send that much old-fashioned unsolicited junk mail in 2015 comes across as pretty desperate, but for a company promising superfast digital communications it is downright embarrassing. Sort it out Branson you hairy tosspot.

Set the pass code to numerical to make it quick, then set it to not ask for a passcode within 5 minutes (or more if you want) of last use. Saves a lot of hassle.

We had free blood test/health check at work today.

Woman I work with is the same age (well 2 months older actually), smoked all her life, eats whatever she wants, is slightly over weight, and whose idea of exercise is walking to the car.

Me... watch what I eat, not smoked for 13 years, ride my bike a lot, walk a lot, drink only wine these days.

Comparing results:

Her blood pressure was better, her Glucose lower, her cholesterol better, her triglycerides lower.

Now that's ******* annoying!

If it's only a few days old, you'll still be under warranty, so just take it to an Apple store and they should replace it for you free of charge.

Well its not that I can't grow any facial hair, it's just that it doesn't "connect" via my chin and so all I can grow are terrible looking mutton chops :sob:

Or maybe I'm just 11 :p

The only fully grown man I've ever met who can't grow a single facial hair is one of the line managers at the selhurst sainsburys (and, coincidentally, a complete c*nt. Everyone wants to slap his face, that's for sure.)

That life insurance ad with the two old geezers in a pub playing darts. One throws a shit shot and the other says it would have been better if Charlie was still around. Turns out it's not a coke euphemism but a tenuous reference to their dead mate, whose photo is suspiciously close to the board. A bit later, after their pints of vodka and orange juice, one grabs the other and shouts 'I'LL GIVE THEM A CALL!'

'Who? Get off me!'

Well I had a call from WWF asking to increase our monthly direct debit to help save some other animal (we sponsored a snow leopard & tiger as Christmas presents for the girls last year) - it took 5 minutes of spiel before I finally managed to convince him I couldn't commit to any increase, but as part of his 'closing statement' he said that he was obliged to tell me that he worked for a professional fundraising company who had been paid 204,000 :eek: by WWF for this campaign, but that they estimated it would raise an extra 1.6m over the next 4 years - I'm not convinced that it was a good use of funds!

This really does get to me, I'd rather have longer adverts at the end or something! you just get into something the suddenly you have 5 minutes of crap. If anything the adverts are so bad that they actually make me avoid the bloody product.

When the Red Cross did this to me twice in a week I stopped the original direct debit, I no longer give to any of the big charities
