packaging. all this shrink fit plastic around bulbs, tools etc--never meant to be removed once sealed.
Inconsiderate parking.
MP's who whine about their lot---lazy well off bastids.
Nosey neighbours.
All lazy bastids who won't work and we have to keep them in a style they have become accustomed to. :pc

B@&tard cyclists out on the country lanes taking up all the road, they're a f@&king liability!
I've very nearly had a pile up today on the way home when coming down a country road (60mph) and finding two Lycra clad imbeciles in the middle of the road as I've gone round a bend  :eek
And I'm not talking the middle of their lane, one of them was dawdling along by the central white line turning round and chatting to his mate.....f@&king retard!!!

Treat everything in life the way a dog would- if you can't eat it or foc it, forget it.

Or, they reduce the serving and bump up the price.

Tell me about it!

For instance Mars Bars have shrunk in size because of this new "treatwise" idea (that if you make chocolate bars smaller, people won't be such fat bastards), yet they still cost the same.

Meanwhile Asda's Toad in the Hole has gone from the original size with 8 sausages in it to the original size with only 6 sausages and now it's about 2/3rds the size and only has *four* sausages in it! Once again, of course, the price hasn't changed...

Oh and the twat on Saturday who drove along the M275, along the slip road and half way along the Cosham road with his left indicator on and when I pulled up alongside him and pointed it out says "Oh, is that bad then?"

Pillock!

Cornflower packets.............it goes everywhere...............pings off the inner wrapper...., over the work tops, under the cooker controls, generally focs me off.....normal flour isn't much better...........I should probably use painting and decorating dust sheets before I start cooking.

and Blue bikes :b...................because they are slower than dial up internet.
Easiest way to go fast........don't buy a blue bike

I do make my own. But guess what? They reduce the quantities and increase the prices on the ingredients you buy as well  :grumble

This seriously doesn't work with me... instead of having one reduced portion, I'll end up having 2 portions which were more than the original portion to start with... this could explain why I am a fat bastard though...

Weaning seven month old daughters who, when you try them with a small portion of home made veg purée, wolf it down, so you make a shitload more and they won't fucking touch it. Ever.

Getting excited because after two months of physio your knee finally bends enough to reach the gear lever, only to find the ligaments in your foot have shrunk too much to twist round and actually touch the fucking thing.

Broken, bruised, forgotten, sore,
too fucked up to care any more.

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


Steve

I just read that the police have recently prosecuted the first person for middle lane hogging ever (white van man surprise surprise).

at least they were on the road.    riding out toward the middle around country lanes is sensible makes you more visible. I tend to do it on either bicycle  or the fazer.  Unlike the probable tard I keep ears and eyes open and move toward the side to allow vehicles to pass when safe. Beats cars racing passed so close they want to force you in the hedges  :)

So he was charged *two years* ago and only now has he been convicted.

Ok, the fine and, more importantly, the five points are good, but probably by now most drivers will have forgotten all about this law (especially given the number of Middle-Lane Larrys I've seen out there), so it's hardly going to be much of a deterrent :(

everything you buy have shrunk but my foccing waist haven't.
jeans says 40" but more like 38",42" to foccing big.
try another size 40" and it fits from another shop.
sizes these days are all over the place.
If I wanted to make a life-long career out of
working with the mentally retarded I would
have opened a Harley Davidson Dealership!

I just cheat. I still buy the same waist size, but stretch jeans, or cargo trousers with an elasticated waist band  :lol

Pensioners & people that don't work in the supermarket at weekends!!
you have all week to do yourshopping when we are at work so why clog up the roads & shops at weekends?

CORMAC!! ( for those that don't know they are the Cornish council workers CORMAC stands for Cant Organise Road Maintenance Around Cornwall)
oh yeah we wait until May to start any major road project that is going to last 6 months so we block up both main roads in & out of the country at the same time at the busiest time of the year!! we will cone off dual carriageways for miles and only do work on 200 yards a week!! the rest is coned off ..... for safety...fucking hell that length of road you could land 3 jumbo's on if it weren't fecking coned off!!!!

and breath.....
 
It ain't what you ride, it's who you ride with!!!
