I quite like the idea of Carriers I use carrying out maintenance on their fleet.. albeit 4 hrs is a bit of a delay

People who dry their hands on tea towels in our staff kitchen, instead of using the paper towels provided.

Tea towels are there for drying things - hands included. They are also not wasting paper.

She is handy to have onside for Labour and appeals to the wavering Tory voters , Ideal to appear more for Labour in the final days before the vote , She bats any tricky questions calmly into the rough .

I am proper sick of so many people on social media flooding it with their political choices and berating everyone for not sharing them. The copying and paste of preprepared material written as if it is an individual penning it is tedious. I know elections are important but is all of this necessary? Stop it! :)

It also seems to bring out the worst in people too. Nice quiet reserved friends are now screaming at each other 'virtually' over ridiculous non facts and points and probably relationships between them will never quite be the same again.

Even watching the breakfast news is traumatic now. Not because of the content, but because of the determination of every presenter to be an even bigger dick than Paxman/Day etc. Rubbish. Just for once I would like to hear what they actually have to say (not about the other party, about the issues).

People who shout move down on a crowded tube when it is impossible to do so and then get off after one stop. They probably spend a lot of money on gym membership but can't be bothered to walk for 20 minutes instead of clogging up the tube. Utter morons.

Yoda 06-06-2017 02:00 PM

People who can't shut up for a minute's silence.

Shopping in John Lewis this morning when they made a polite announcement that they will observe the minute's silence at 11 o/c and why. Ten minutes later there's another polite, respectful announcement that the minute's silence is beginning.

Staff and shoppers all stop and stand in private, silent reflection. Except for one couple (probably 40-50s) visiting the TV display who continue to discuss the various merits of a TV. As all other sound stops, I can hear them chatting away and they're British (so there's no excuse that they didn't understand the announcement). The whole store is silent, everyone still...they must know!

I'm thinking surely they'll realise and stop soon, but no, the guy walks past a silent group to approach another TV and calls even more loudly to his partner, who calls back her reply.

Not wanting to make things worse by asking them to shut the F up, I tried the very English solution of a cough to get their attention..no success.

When the minute ended, several customers were loudly criticising their behaviour, but I suspect they continued to be oblivious.

I don't get it...they came across as so self-absorbed that they couldn't stop discussing pixels and picture definition for 60 seconds. Disgusting lack of manners, and no respect for others who wanted just one minute of quiet.

At one point I thought the man was about to disturb a member of staff, who had his head bowed, by asking a question...had he done so, I would have had plenty to say to him at 61 seconds!

So true. It was only the fact that it was a minute's silence that stopped me, because I didn't want to make it worse.

But you can't reason with unreasonable people, they usually get aggressive and abusive back, and then all you've achieved is ruining your own morning.

On the plus side, everyone else was fine and there was mass condemnation of the mouthy couple.

When I next looked in their direction, they'd gone. Whether that was to the till to pay or whether the wife had whisked him away (he was the worst offender) I don't know.

I was rather hoping they'd asked to buy a telly and the staff had said 'nah, we don't want your money, let us escort you to the car park instead!'.

I hope her next meeting is with an large lorry. F*ckwit.

Still, on the plus side, she was wearing all the right clobber.
