I had to stop on a small roundabout in town yesterday as an elderly couple in front had pulled up to let their friend very slowly get in. I wasn't annoyed, it made me laugh tbh.

A niggle.

We have waited all week for an electrician to work on a project on our house.

I have carefully planned my week, and softened up my missus for today's
England vs Scotland, Chile vs Bolivia fest.

Electrician has arrived today, we have materials. He is just now starting the work.

I think my careful and calculated plans are now fecked.

Once the power goes off I reckon I have to accept it with the utmost outward grace. Any complaint runs the risk of me being unreasonable.

I haven't seen any football since Monday.

If the last 45 minutes are anything to go by, you haven’t missed much.

PeterH 18-06-2021 11:06 PM

Missed first 30 minutes..I have Chile Bolivia now.

I wonder if I can swing Argentina Uruguay later.

Why do we believe the hype every time...about world class youngsters....4 or 5 sides much better than England in the Euros...

I think you're supposed to say it's "They" now as opposed to "Them" :confused: :confused:

No because at least the driver was still in the car, as well you know in Spain people like to just abandon the car in the middle of the road 'Spanish parking'

Websites that won’t let you use the back button, making you hold to their page....that’s annoying.

This is also true, however they do like to use roundabouts as pick up and drop off points for their friends, which also involves a lengthy greeting or farewell before moving off.

Companies that chase you as a subscription has run out and when you renew it with them, they then proceed to take it twice from your bank.

Companies that offer you a good deal and then hike up the price when you renew.

Why the f*ck can't you reward loyalty rather than simply shafting you?

Watching the England v Scotland match and a couple of yanks screaming for the shoot out at the end. When politely informed that there wouldn't be one they started giving out about nil nil draws in saaacher. I less politely asked them why the American nation creams themselves when a pitcher in baseball pitches a no hitter. This wasn't answered, but one of them came out with the old cliché about a draw being similar to kissing your sister. Of course I couldn't resist and mentioned that along with no-hitters maybe kissing ones sis gives them the same experience as watching a no-hitter.

the Inability of my iPad to deal with outlandish things like copying and pasting or god forbid, highlighting some text.
It’s just impossible to do anything other than type words and even then the autocorrect wades in to Fock things up. (Right on cue)

Should have asked why each side has have to have two teams to play grid iron

Oh yes. Oh yes with a great big capital 'F'

You can have a crystal clean screen, but when it comes to highlighting text, it just develops a mind of it's own. You can pinch outwards until you can read the soddin' text from the other side of the room, but does it help? Like **** it does... :wallbash:
