    Other people eating...

    Jesus christ...

    • Slurping tea or coffee, no fucking need
    • Scraping fucking yogurt cartons to get every last bit, jesus christ like, it's gone..
    • On yogurt, licking the yogurt from the inside of the top seal
    • Basic chewing with mouth wide open
    • Talking with mouth full of food
    • The scraping of the bowl to get every drop of the cereal milk... actually sounding like they wanna scrape the paint of the bowl..

    Im sure there's more but that's what I could come up sitting with my neanderthal work mates...


    Oh hang on,
    "Where did you go on holidays mick"?

    "I went to Portugal, very hot, too hot!"

    Fuck off mick, what the fuck were you expecting ya prick...

    Love the eating one. It drives me bloody nuts. I just want to slap the person around the back of the head and tell them to shut up.

    Totally agree on that last point. There's been some amount of people that spent a small fortune going on holidays this year only to come home and complain about the heat. Must be Unbearable relaxing by the pool outside your air conditioned apartment. It's not like you had to chop wood for 2 weeks.
    Next year try saving a few quid and stay at home.

    Yeah. That's another good one Gerry. Could add the lack of interest when the jackpot is a paltry €4 million but descends into a frenzy when it hits the €20 million mark. Wouldn't be turning my nose up at either if I'm honest.

    Pricks thinking it's okay to set off flares left right and centre.

    I remember the Boss night in town last year would have been catastrophic if it caught the drapes off the ceiling. A couple of pleasant singes onto head beside us at fan zone in Madrid and a lovely burn mark into top (thankfully not an expensive one) at outdoor boozer across from Wembley just gone.

    Have a great time, smoke bombs, singing chants the lot but if I see one more flare about to be lit beside me again it's getting rammed up their hole.

    Every year at this time the radio shows do the discussions and phone ins about the costs of sending kids back to school and it will be the same next year and the year after that and....you get the gist. Crested uniforms,I-Pads,the racket with the school books, "voluntary" contributions ,nobody is doing fuck all about it.

    separated Parents using children as weapons, up in the family court at the end of the month for a hopefully a fair arrangement regarding my little one.
    some of the stories from support groups from men (and women) is horrific.

    Yeah it does. Sterling scored a hat trick a couple of weeks ago, and the following week a lot of people “captained him” and put him in the team and he ONLY scored once and he was bombarded with messages. He responded well to them and had the banter. But come on it’s bloody fantasty.

    Those automatic passport control machines. I only ever had one successful attempt using them and think it was more down to good fortune than anything. Spent a good 15 minutes trying to get through Stansted the other morning and kept getting a seek assistance message,. Ended up roaring a string of obscenities at the machine only to realize that there was a line for people that are having trouble using them.

    If using them ever becomes compulsory I'm done going to the game.

    Owners who can't control their dogs.
    Every time I see a mutt running wild off the lead, or being aggressive towards other dogs and people, the owner invariably talks to it like it's a child with learning difficulties... in a soft sad tone, interspersed with kissing sounds.... "Here Benji, *kiss kiss* here boy. That's not nice. That's not allowed. Here boy *kiss kiss* Benji, Benji, *kiss kiss* Benji"
    And of course the dog doesn't listen, so he doesn't come back or he doesn't stop barking or whatever.
    And it's all types of people who do it...young/old, male/female. I even passed a bodybuilder, with a little King Charles who wouldn't shut up barking at my dog, and he was at it to..."Poppy *kiss kiss* Poppy. It's ok Poppy *kiss kiss*. You can stop now Poppy"
    Just because it's the size of a cat, doesn't mean you treat it like one.
    I even had one yapping and barking, that bolted towards my kid and gave her a fright, and while the owner did say sorry (once) she was more concerned with talking gently and explaining to her little runt that he shouldn't do that because it's not nice.
    I honestly can't remember the last time I heard someone shout a command at their dog.
    Or even shout it's name.
    It's all this softly, softly bollox.
    Gets on my tits.
    As you may have guessed.
