Badly designed power tool cases that give little to no room for the cable and plug, it can take longer to repack than the job if was used for!!

That heart sinking feeling in a supermarket queue when the old bag in front decides to be 'helpful' and pay the exact amount.

Cashier: "That's 23.91 please"
Old dear: "Right love, let's see what we've got here... that's 10, 20... oooh, wait, I've got two 5's if that'll help... 10, 15, 20. 21. You always need change so I'll give you some of mine... 50, 70... oh no, that's a 5p. The look the same to me those 5's and 20's. I've got the wrong glasses on. Just a tick, I'll put my reading glasses on. Now, where were they? I only had them 5 minutes ago. Right, that's better. Where were we? Oh yes, 20, 21 - ooh, one of those new ones, 21.50, 60, 70, 90... ooh, a few coppers 95, 96, 97, 99... 22 pounds. How much was it?"
Cashier: "23.91... I need another 1.91 please."
Old dear: "Oh. Oh dear, I've run out of change. Frank... have you got 1.91 in your pocket?"
Frank: "Hang on dear, I'll take a look... 50, 55, 75... no, is a fiver any good? Oh, what's this? A 2 coin. Put that towards it and... how much did you need? Oh, 1.91. Well put the 2 towards it and give me 9p back. I don't want it all in 1's. Tell you what, take a 10p out and I'll gove you the 1p back."
FOR ****'S SAKE WHERE'S YOUR SENSE OF ******* URGENCY?? YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO BE WORM FOOD IN THE NEXT 3 MONTHS... SOONER IF I EVER GET ******* STUCK BEHIND YOU AGAIN.

Having both rail lines north of Perth closed now due to flooding, including the road to Aberdeen (leaving hundreds stranded in Dundee), and getting jobs to Glasgow and back (normally the wettest place on earth).

If referees grind your gears, try this : http://www.theguardian.com/football/...fy-the-referee

You'll hate yourself for instantly recognising so many of them.

F*cking sick to death of people on TV and everywhere using the word 'so' to start a sentence when it's not needed, just had this rant on another thread....

Stop starting threads with 'so'. Everyone stop staring sentences with so, The Apprentice, Dragons Den whatever FFS FFS. American SHIT. Hello introduce yourself...'so my name is Stan, people call me Paki Stan". What do you do for a living? 'so, I wank pigs off'.

SO MY ARSE!!!!
