Today's "What Gets My Goat"
« on: 04 July 2015, 07:46:42 PM »
No, not a thread especially for midden  :lol

Stolen the idea from another forum, as it can get quite funny, and also, lots of whingeing old bastards on here who like a good gripe (not me, I'm not old - just stuck in my ways...apparently  :rolleyes ).

So I'll kick off with my latest one, verbatim from the other site:

When you discover a product at the supermarket that you really like and they stop stocking it. Or, they reduce the serving and bump up the price. In fact, one seems to precede the other, so that's probably what will happen to the particular thing I have in mind this time.

 They're feckin rationing me! My meals are getting smaller and smaller, cos damned if I'll pay for two now they've shrunk the original. Bastards.

"New recipe!" less of the more expensive ingredients. "Same price!" for a smaller portion.

You have started something now :)

For me it is so called reality programs on tv, they are so far removed from actual reality the producers should be prosecuted under the trades description act.

Me actually being a grumpy old foccer means my post count is going to rocket, the list of things that get my goat is endless :)

Irony is lost on some people haha :) 

Extremely slow (typically elderly)  drivers who think nothing of travelling for miles with a queue behind them, never once pulling over to let people past

Foccers who pull out in front of me on a twisty road, then crawl along and there is nowhere to overtake, especially when there is no one else on the road behind me in the first place. :wall :wall :wall

People who insist on driving in the middle lane (or even the outside lane) on the motorway regardless of whether they're overtaking or not. Of course this is only when I'm in the car, don't give a monkeys when I'm on the bike  :lol  just blat past them wherever they are

From today's ride...


The modern propensity to not bother using indicators, mostly Audi drivers but not limited just to them


And


People driving in country lanes who cut the corners forcing me into the hedge, follow the contours of the road tossers and stop refusing to drive close to the hedge in case of the odd scratch!


And that's just today's griping..

Drivers who remain stationary when the lights have turned green because they actually wanted the other lane which is still on red and they are waiting for the lights on that one to change, by which time the original lane has turned red again and we all missed a turn >:.
Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.

Going back to nick's gripe; when the supermarket has a 2 for whatever offer on and there is only 1 fucking item left! That pisses me off more than said item being out of stock

Bikers who get bikers a bad name by being stupid (at the wrong time or in the wrong place). Leaving Barton bike night on Wednesday some idiots (my opinion) were so busy showing off they ran into the back of another bike. Moan moan moan......

Women who are devoid of logic but comment on everything.
Graduate Engineers who if they knew half of what they think they did would be feckin geniuses.
People not saying thanks when I hold a shop door open for them....."It's alright mate, I'm a bloody doorman"
Slough - nuke it!
Boring people with no sense of humour who don't understand the reasoning of "doing something just for a laugh"
Gays who are flamboyant and mince to show you they're gay.

............I'm going to stop there - getting wound up  :lol
Those are my principles...if you don't like them I have others.

Bikers who let you know they are going to turn right or left for fecking miles and then just do not bother there arse. Usually they will correct this at a road junction.
Yes I am guilty as well. :o

When I'm  in the perfect position to look up a girls skirt, or see the sun shining behind a  summer dress, or catch an eyeful as the wind lifts up a skirt and some totally ignorant cockblocker walks in between and blocks my view. That's it really, the rest I can live with.  :D

Slow witted retards who approach roundabouts and don't indicate they are turning left at the first exit. You slow down for them and stop, they turn left meaning everyone has now stopped for no reason than this moronic tw#t can't be arsed to drive consideratly. Next time you're in a traffic jam chances are some knob like this started it.
Tossers who take 3 or more seconds to set off when the lights turn green, at best three get through leaving everyone else seething at their incompetence.
Shop assistants who tell you there is no demand for the item you've just requested, really, what am I then? A feckin' apparition, didn't I just ask for it?
Numb nuts who refuel their cars parked three feet away from the pump. You've filled yours and are ready to leave but can't because the normal seven foot channel to drive through is now only four feet wide.
I'm a grumpy old bastard but only because I've no time for arseholes.
Never underestimate the ingenuity of an idiot!

Each to their own Lew, I only like women though, :b as for being a pervert, as long as I have vision, I will look and enjoy. 8)
I guess that's why it winds me up so much,  I go from being  a perfectly innocent bystander who just happens to be in the right spot at the right time, to a totally guilty and potentially peeping Tom pervert if I succumb to the urge to move to get my view back.  :lol

Women who put their arse on show by tucking skirt in their knickers. Inconsiderate bitch could wore a thong that day  ;)

The revised highway code roundabout diagram which must be the main reason I've had to agree with 7 omly,  it appears to have removed logical reason from mind of the driver

people who take up 2 car  lengths to park a fekkin peugeot 204

People in stationery traffic who leave enough room between them and the car in front to get two 40 foot long artics in, great for me when I am on the bike but sends me crazy when I am in the cage.
