I think it's the intent behind what they're saying.

So someone commenting, 'wow you're tall' isn't meant to be negative, although can be annoying if you hear it several times a day.

Whereas someone saying 'you're short and/or fat' is obviously derogatory and not intended to make that person feel good about themselves.

New LP 28-07-2016 11:43 PM

Wagammas serving your food about 10 minutes before the person you are with and bringing out starters last.

But they tell you they do this apparently as bad service is actually 'cool'.

Also when you order shed loads of food somewhere and the waiter then asks 'is that all'?

Finally, East Croydon Sainburys by the NLA tower. Half the self service machines are always not working, no members of staff ever fix them. They are by a train station and people are in a hurry. No other similar supermarket has this problem.

ITV's Tipping Point.
This is a very simple game.
You drop your disc so that it lands and pushes the other discs off the edge.
Children can do this.
When the slidey thing is moving towards the front DO NOT DROP YOUR DISC - YOU FECKING MUPPET.
Drop it just before it heads back out again, OTHERWISE IT WILL STAND UPRIGHT AND WILL LIKELY 'RIDE' WHEN IT FALLS OVER.

The pillock on yesterday drove me up the wall.
Funny old thing, he lost.

This should only be allowed if matched with a later photo of the food exiting the body. Will stop a few of these boring twats if so.

It was funny when fellow despairing team members would say 'oh just come out', and then refuse to pay crystals to free them, clearly believing them incapable of differentiating between the gold and silver bits of paper.

Simples. Put the open box into a plastic bag and pour the hot milk (and sugar to taste) into the box. Don't worry about the box dissolving, he/she won't be able to taste the difference.

When you get out of a lift,people who stand directly in front of you,trying to get in. Presumably related to those people who try to get on trains when people are getting off

Or the people that press the button to get in when the doors have been trying to close a few times. The lift is clearly full and they squeeze in and have the audacity to apologise when they clearly are not sorry. Or they deliver the obligatory lift small talk of "room for a small one". And they often are not small.

I'm sure I've posted this before but it's true......on such occasions I've found a small rucksack swinging accidentally on purpose from my shoulder as I approach them works a treat.

No need for actual physical contact, but the sudden motion as you march purposefully out of the lift or train is enough to make most take a step back and then you're past them and gone.

Ebay. I go for my normal look through the antiques to see if I can find a million pound item no-one has noticed and they have added another posh term for something. I had no idea what it is so I looked up Incunabula and it is basically very old books. Apart from wasting a bit of my time looking not too much of a problem. I go to have a look on the auction listings and some dopey mofo has put this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alfie-Davi...gAAOSwTZ1XlR-o and this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brand-New-...0AAOSwtnpXkRLp under that category.

Only way to get any leg room. Always do it so I have somewhere to stretch so my torn calf doesn't cramp up. Don't see the issue as long as people are prepared to move to let people through.

Those who don't get up to let people less fortunate sit down "just because they pay their fare" are another matter.

Did you write directly on the site?

Never do that!

Always write in word and then copy and paste it.

Talking of competencies...

What annoys me is that the sift is meant to be impartial and is meant to adhere to set parameters so that people's competencies can be measured in a fair way.

It is therefore a joke that the same competency that I submit gets a 6 for one sift and 3 for another! How the hell is that even possible?

Wash basins seem to be shrinking. Finding it impossible to wash hands without splashing water all over myself and the loo floor at work. The basin is tiny, added to which the tap is 'automatic' and pisses the water out at about 200psi into said tiny sink. Disaster.

My trip to France in a couple of weeks for the brother in-laws wedding. Costing more by the bloody week.
Flaming fiasco with the car i'd planned to take costing me 4 new tyres and another few hundred quid for releasing seized tracking adjustment bolts. It only went in to get the air-con fixed. Green flag want more than quoted for for their breakdown cover, on top of the travel insurance to cover for the neurotic poncing stepson. And the Missus has now decided she needs to get her hair done and replace the dress she'd already bought for it.

Motorway signs that reduce speed to 50 and say "incident ahead, slow down" for two or three miles and finish with an "End" sign when there has been absolutely nothing there.

Meanwhile the traffic backs up to nearly a standstill and you've witnessed a few near-misses as a bunch of cocks in BMWs/Audis/Mercs continually change lanes and undertake to gain a few extra yards on the rest of us.

Today on the M40 - f*ck them all.

Traffic lights. Why, seemingly without fail, is the person at the front of the queue now colourblind and cant see the lights change colour and sits there for 10 seconds meaning only 2 cars end up getting through.

You can even follow the lights sequence and get off quicker than an F1 driver if you so wished but these morons seem surprised when theirs turns green!
