the 2 parking tickets issued by UKPC and Smart, first one for the crime of leaving my car out of my bay close to the recycling area and the second one at Matalan Sutton after I popped into a nearby shop to get some shrapnel for the machine, apparently I had passed the 15 minute limit, each ticket is 130 and 90 but generously reduced by 50% is paid within 14 days !

My son's teacher wrote a really snide note in one of his books a couple of years ago telling us that we needed to make him practice his handwriting at home every evening (he was 6 at the time). The note was so full of basic grammatical errors that I felt duty bound to correct it in red ink, like she would do to his work. A couple of days later when dropping him off in the morning, I was called into the headmaster's office and accused of bullying the teacher and undermining her work - by correcting the message she'd written in his book. The headmaster felt this was a more serious issue than the fact that they had a teacher who clearly couldn't write English correctly teaching year 1 pupils. He also tried to make out that it was racist to say this as she was Asian, although as I pointed out to him born and bred in the UK and having been through the UK university system and therefore presumably spoke English as a first language.

Fight me

Ha same here on both accounts. Think we're the only two here though. 1989 is a great album and I really really really like Carly's new song. Bad taste :lux:

When Amy was in year 4 she brought some spellings home to learn & I was surprised to see one was spelt wrong. I pointed it out to Amy & she refused to believe me - she just couldn't get her head round the fact that a teacher could be wrong, even when I showed her in the dictionary. It was only when a team of teachers came 6th at a quiz night that she realised they weren't infallible!

Young children ( 5 or 6 years old ish ) being interviewed on the radio about something or other and giving stupid one word answers . It always ends up with the presenter loading the questions :

Presenter : "Hello (insert child's name). Now, I've heard a little story about you being really brave and picking up the phone all by yourself and dialling 999 on your mummy's mobile and telling the nice man at the end of the phone that there's a cow on the loose in the high street, and you had to call them because your mummy got knocked over by the cow, didn't she? And you called the police to report this and they then got the fire brigade out to help catch the cow, didn't they, and got it put back safely into the farmer's field, didn't they ? "

Child : " Yeah".

Sounds like a Tony Pulis interview!

I know, before you say it.
I'm getting old.
But, in what world is it acceptable to have a bloke in tight shorts and high heels dancing in an advert.
It doesn't have anything to do with what is being advertised, that I can see.
I think it says a lot when a company thinks this is an acceptable advert for their product, and the general public just accept it.
A sign of the times (sigh)
Not a better world
:(:(

Please tell me this is some kind of sick, tasteless joke.

That really doesn't worry me. I get more pissed off by the loan sharks who make borrowing money seem easy, painless and a solution for people in financial need. Nice, jokey ads that sanitise the small print that they'll be charged over 1000% APR.

These feckers deserve to endure a slow and painful end, commensurate with the misery and hardship they spread around to needy and gullible people.
