What really annoys me is people, particularly young people whom insist on using the word 'like' all the time as a conversation filler . . . "you know what I mean like", " I was like all . . . " drives me nuts. What's worse is that upwards inflection at the end of every sentence that makes everything seem as if it's a question!?! It's this I'm referring to



It's all just wrong, and plain annoying

At work in the film industry, the word that bugs the hell out of me is "amazing".

Was sitting upstairs minding my own business having lunch and there were a production team sitting next to me.

"How are your Cheese & Chive crisps?"
"Oh they're amazing!"
"Really? The same as my watercress and celery seeded baguette, it's amazing too."
"What about your beetroot and plum smoothie?"
"Oh it's truly amaz......"

"OH FUCK OFF!"  :wall

yeah supermarkets are open 24/7 but when I work away from home only time I get to do a food shop for the family is at a weekend. even on a Friday evening I'll go at 8-830 after I've spent time with my boys at rugby training and yes they are in Asda trying to decide which aisle to clog up and then they bump into Eric from across the road & have a natter in the narrowest part of the shop... they got cafe's for nattering in!!

Some cnut walking around London with an IS flag draped over his shoulder and a kid sat on his shoulders waving a small IS flag just over a week after 30 British people were murdered on a beach in Tunisia by IS. The police said they can't do anything about it because he hasn't done wrong FFS.

Apparently a lottery win, or ordering online can sort these issues out.
Replacing a loaf of bread with a loofah, 'cos it was close in the alphabet, can cause the odd argument but hey,nobody's perfect.  :lol

And why the kid on his shoulders - so us decent people won't smack the shit out of him for doing it 'cos he has a kid with him. The spineless, wank stain, piss taking tw@  :grumble . On his own he'd be dog food.

Probably just a growth on his shoulder that came to life, they're generally a bit 'special'.

Surface Dressing - I am surprised, somewhat that this is the first "whinge" about Surface dressing.
It is the season and it strikes - randomly - and according to the signs can take a whole week to do 500yds!

And for those "lucky" enough - try following the "Convoy Vehicle" through on a freshly laid section. They go at less than the DVLA request of new riders doing their tests! On a moving surface.
There is generally little warning.............
And getting the tar spots off - don't get me started.....
And I agree - keep old people out of supermarkets - I mean why are they queuing at Morrisons in Cheltenham, to get in at 7AM?  :rollin :rollin :rollin

I was spitting feathers yesterday evening.


Riding home on the M20 I overtake a woman, she's in the inside lane doing her makeup at 60 MPH.  Bottle of foundation in one hand, applying it with a sponge in the other, squinting up at the rear view mirror to make sure she applied it right.  :eek


Couldn't believe what I was seeing, stayed alongside her for a bit and sounded my horn, eventually she looked over, I pointed and shock my head in the hope she might realise what she was doing was so so stupid but no, I got the finger and told to fuck off (at least that's what I lip read).


I rode alongside her for a bit longer hoping she might stop knowing I was there but no!  In the end I didn't fancy being on the end of her inevitable accident and rode off.


Wish I had a camera for moments like this I would love to send that sort of evidence to the police.


I tried to remember her number in my head to report her (bit of a waste of time because the police only do anything if they have two witnesses to the crime) but by the time I'd concentrated on changing lanes to pull onto the A249 I had forgotten it!  DOH!


Do you know what made it worse, no amount of focing makeup was gonna make her look pretty......  :lol
Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys beer, and that helps!

Insurance AGAIN
For the car this time Admiral multicar me and my daughter she is 22 and now has 2 years NCB yet the insurance has gone up - I am maxed out on my NCB and am 48 so I dont expect any reductions on those two accounts for me anymore but I would of thought at her age and with her adding another year  NCB the insurance should be coming down.

I am sick of it every year having to spend time doing the rounds to find cheaper and then ring my current insurer to tell them for them to say "OH er ok MR Fazersharp lets have a look for you, hold the line I will just speak to my manager------- yes we can match that for you"   
WHY DONT YOU FECKING JUST QUOTE ME THE BEST PRICE STRAIGHT THE WAY, cause im not a twat - im not just going to pay it without question so why insult me with a cheeky cash grab.
Im telling you this scam will be the next PPI   
I don't do rain or threat there of. dry rider only with no shame.
