Buying a new pair of headphones so you have music for your 3 hour train journey only to find you left them at home but brought the previous pair which cut in and out on one of the ears unless you hold the wire in one particular position. Meaning unless you find said position you can only listen to music through one ear

People over explaining stuff.

People wearing singlet type shirts on the tube. I really don't want your sweaty skin rubbing against my clothes.

I had to google 'singlet type shirt' as wasn't sure what you meant but you are correct in every way.

The flip side is just as bad. I work with a bloke who says hello before you've had a chance to get the phone to your ear. I might kill him.

I don't know if it's been mentioned before on this thread but for me it's 'hipsters'. Skinny blokes with beards and tight jeans. They look like a gust of wind would make them cry.

People who end the call one nano second after they deem the call to have ended so they say 'goodbye' and then you say 'Goo.... (terminated by a loud crackle down the earpiece). Works best when dialling someone in your admin office or company that wants to make a point of how unimportant your call was to them.

I know I have form here but......

Wimbledon spectators. What's with the slow hand clap the minute a player challenges a line call?

You f****** *******. Absolutely totally cringeworthy you wankers.

Santos-er 07-07-2015 07:21 PM

Pointless canned clapping on TV Shows. In particular, lotto draws. Why the **** does anyone need to clap because some z-list **** pressed a button - and six numbered balls manage to find their way out of tumble dryer with a hole in it?

Moaning about hipsters? Is it 2012 again?

Agreed, also the ***** who feel the need to shout some inane bollocks right before a player is going to serve. Thanks for delaying the game and putting them off, you pricks.

Gerrard and Lampard sucking MLS' cock over and over. Wonderful to be here. Everyone gets a thank. Except money.

So I've just started to get a bit hungry (it's dinner time here in the greatest country on Earth), and so I thought I'd put my frozen pizza in the oven for dinner. As I walk into the kitchen, out of the corner of my eye I see the box crumpled up in the bin. I'm absolutely furious, but there's no one here in my apartment to blame. And I'm far too lazy to put some shoes on and buy more dinner. And now I've got no food to eat as I flick between the Ashes, State of Origin, Yohan Cabaye thread and an essay for uni.

It should be compulsory to have 10 or 20 people with Tourette's in Centre Court and No 1 Court every day of Wimbledon. I wouldn't miss a minute. I would cry spunk.

Sorry, i've been doing a few interviews recently and have the STAR technique firmly in my head. Have you heard of the STAR technique? It's quite simple...

Step 1 – Situation or Task

Describe the situation that you were confronted with or the task that needed to be accomplished. With the STAR approach you need to set the context. Make it concise and informative, concentrating solely on what is useful to the story. For example, if the question is asking you to describe a situation where you had to deal with a difficult person, explain how you came to meet that person and why they were being difficult. If the question is asking for an example of teamwork, explain the task that you had to undertake as a team.

Step 2 – Action

This is the most important section of the STAR approach as it is where you will need to demonstrate and highlight the skills and personal attributes that the question is testing. Now that you have set the context of your story, you need to explain what you did. In doing so, you will need to remember the following:
Be personal, i.e. talk about you, not the rest of the team.
Go into some detail. Do not assume that they will guess what you mean.
Steer clear of technical information, unless it is crucial to your story.
Explain what you did, how you did it, and why you did it.
What you did and how you did it
The interviewers will want to know how you reacted to the situation. This is where you can start selling some important skills. For example, you may want to describe how you used the team to achieve a particular objective and how you used your communication skills to keep everyone updated on progress etc.
Why you did it
For example; when discussing a situation where you had to deal with conflict, many candidates would simply say: “I told my colleague to calm down and explained to him what the problem was”. However, it would not provide a good idea of what drove you to act in this manner. How did you ask him to calm down? How did you explain the nature of the problem? By highlighting the reasons behind your action, you would make a greater impact. For example:
“I could sense that my colleague was irritated and I asked him gently to tell me what he felt the problem was. By allowing him to vent his feelings and his anger, I gave him the opportunity to calm down. I then explained to him my own point of view on the matter, emphasising how important it was that we found a solution that suited us both."
This revised answer helps the interviewers understand what drove your actions and reinforces the feeling that you are calculating the consequences of your actions, thus retaining full control of the situation. It provides much more information about you as an individual and is another reason why the STAR approach is so useful.

Step 3 – Result

Explain what happened eventually – how it all ended. Also, use the opportunity to describe what you accomplished and what you learnt in that situation. This helps you make the answer personal and enables you to highlight further skills.
This is probably the most crucial part of your answer. Interviewers want to know that you are using a variety of generic skills in order to achieve your objectives. Therefore you must be able to demonstrate in your answer that you are taking specific actions because you are trying to achieve a specific objective and not simply by chance.
