    Makeup being applied in front of you on public transport. It’s rampant.

    Saw one seat on the luas taken up by a case blocking it. An old man but wasn't willing to move it for a lady. Bad form.

    Very annoying to see. It does be so evident that the bus is literally full bar some seats and they refuse to move the bag until asked.

    Yup and similarly, make up being applied by motorists while driving - should be banned, same principal applies as using a mobile phone, distracts the driver etc.

    One thing that gets on my goat is people who say ‘Enjoy’ all the time almost like a replacement for Goodbye. At least for me it’s a recent thing I noticed in last year or two (almost like it la picked up from Facebook). It’s not necessarily the word ‘Enjoy’ as if it’s a sentence, you can tell when someone says it but doesn’t mean and pulls a face, as if to say, have a shit day really :eek:

    The fact that today is aquarium (2 of em) cleaning day here at home. The "big" clean only comes around once a month but its a pain in the arse.
    Everything (cept the fish obviously) has to come out and be scrubbed.
    I feed the fish, make sure their water is the proper temperature, chemical comp etc. I swear its like having dozens of teenagers. Is it too much to ask they keep their room tidy? ;)

    Then its on to the water features outside. If algae ever becomes a sellable commodity - I'll be minted.
    Of course then theres the waterfall on at the top of the garden, that all the local starlings use as their personal spa. What self respecting bird shits in the bath while in it???

    Finally, while cleaning all that outside doubtless my attention will be drawn to all the flippin timber that seemed like such a good idea while putting it in - 14 panels of fence, shed, sleepers, gazebo thingy, enclosed seat - all flippin timber, all needing sanding down, and then all needing staining.

    Shouldve just tarmac's the whole fcukin thing.

    Think it's an American thing, right up there with "have a good one..." and some other annoying things they come out with, without finishing their sentences.

    Multi tasking? oh God no. You have to prioritize.

    1. Coffee
    2.Check all things Liverpool on line
    3. more coffee
    4. Whine online about all things needing doing
    5. Clean aquariums (while bitchin about it)
    6. A cuppa tea (just to change things up)
    7. Head outside and clean water feature stuff (again while bitchin about it)
    8 - and this is the important one - HAVE your attention drawn to all the wood that needs attention.
    9. Nod and agree with vague promises of getting started on it
    10. Enjoy the coffee youre handed as a little reward for agreeing to days of tedium in the garden staining wood.

    People who don't give the finger(s) more.











    Watching the games again yesterday and seeing the camera point to supporters in the crowd who's team is losing. Now there's nothing wrong with this as it adds to the drama seeing the anxious looks but what annoys me is the fans who were biting their nails 2 seconds before are now smiling and waving furiously at the camera after spoting their mugs on the big screen. You'd think it was a Bieber audience if you'd just tuned in.
    Now not everybody is at it but if that was me watching Liverpool losing in stoppage time and the camera panned to me I'd give the two fingers straight away and continue until it moved onto some other unfortunate individual.

    Shane Ross !

    He's gone from bad to worse, although he's in very good company when you look at the Independent Alliance in general :mad:

    'Over my dead body' - Ross slaps down talk of OAP bus pass ban at peak times

    I wonder if he was just thinking of himself here given he's got his own bus pass and wants to come and go as he pleases, or if he's also got a lot of OAPs in his constituency and didn't want to upset their little daytrips ?

    ... one thing for sure, he wasn't thinking about people who need to commute during peak times and rely on being able to get on public transport !!!!
