People who consider good manners and chivalry to be chauvinism.

I'm on the side of your nemesis I'm afraid.

I had to change for a south-west train today at Clapham but they're currently striking. Admittedly, it was a squeeze and I did have to really thrust myself into place; but once everyone was settled and the doors had closed and everyone was braced against the final leg into London, I happened to notice the bloke in front me was holding a smart phone at arms length. Now I'm sorry, but he could've made a bit more effort and brought his arm in a bit and foregone scrolling through whatever crap he was looking at for 10 minutes. If there was any sense of entitlement it was his, and all the other bodies belonging to the usual complacent faces you see on trains when you've newly boarded.

And don't get me started about (young) women's behaviour on trains. Talk about self-importance! If they're not sitting on the gang-side rather than by the window to put people off sitting next to them - the delicate darlings - they're leaving their bags on the other seat. The internet's given them a princess complex.

Too many times have I encountered a sardine tin tube doorway only to see people doing star jumps in the aisle where the seats are, move on down ffs.

It's the same on the buses. We only have one entrance/exit, not two, so everyone crams themselves in as though the only way to survive the journey is to be within six inches of the driver so people cant get on or off but the back of the bus has no one standing in it

Brussel sprouts are too bitter to eat, unless you’re part bovine. The devils testicle’s no less.

For a man with some culinary knowledge and a proper northern wife, you disappoint me.

Par boil, cut in half and fry in butter with smoked bacon and chestnuts

Thank me later

Well said that man

I always give up my seat to any lady

Especially if they’re well fit and have exceedingly good hooters

davech 06-12-2019 10:27 AM

I DO like swede - the end result is well worth it. It's just impossible to prepare.

Sky Sports once again going so far over the top about the Manchester Derby

‘There‘a the dug outs. The one on the left will Man Utd and the one on the right will be where Pep and his team will sit. And there’s the technical area where the managers will stalk, stand and shout their come ons’

Fvck right off

yeah. Why should I get the next train and be half an hour late for work because someone wants space to read their newspaper, its ridiculously selfish.

Brussels sprouts are vile. Horrible taste, like cabbage that's been trodden into the mud and with a vague aroma of shite. Disgusting things.

You’re just not treating them properly mate

If you boil them to within an inch of their life then yes they will taste like shite

As you know my principal work is two blocks from my home. My business clases are all in the centre. I use the metro about twice a month - thank feck.

It is a victim of its own success.

Just saw that this ad has been pulled for the reason you said - misleading that lots of things can be delivered at the same time and that all those restaurants are available for everyone.

No more shrieking ‘DELIVEROO’ northern woman, thank **** for that

Surely you can understand how a healthy, non pregnant young woman could find you giving up your seat for her a tad patronising.
