It's even the same at breakfast in business hotels.

You'd think that it was the last meal everyone is going to have for a week!

And don't get me started on hotel toasters.

They are the epitome of the most soulless experience : breakfast amongst the PermierTravelTavern-Inn dwellers found alongside most major roads. Nothing like being elbowed aside as the last piece of food on earth (sausage from that particular tray) is speared by a fat salesman (sorry, regional customer liaison satisfaction experience delivery solutions executive), exhausted after shouting about how he is smashing out units in new market sectors.

I am proud to say that I have burnt bread in many hotels, of varying standard for a number of years. It takes several runs on the continent, but a tip, the croissants in Dubai Airport Emirates business lounge are virtually self-igniting. Nearly turned the whole place to charcoal one morning (drink might have been taken..)

Pizza Hut and Harvester salad bowls are fantastic people watching, and mainly frequented by salad dodgers so cram bowl way above the rim with as much mayonnaise covered crap as possible then plump a few cherry tomato's on top. People have no shame

I don't care what you watched on TV last night and you don't really care whether I'm "alright" or not, so let's not bother asking and get on with our work, shall we?

You're lucky, I had to listen to someone go on about how their boyfriend was the best in the world, quite literally, word for word, every lunch break for months. Then he dumped her, I expect I'll be hearing about that for the next few months.
Whatever happened to people keeping their personal lives personal? I feel like I should scream I don't care, but maybe that would be impolite.

Selco, it's where the Trades go.

Ad breaks on TV, all happening at the same time, specifically.
Surely the idea of an ad break is to allow you to flick about and see what else is on?

Haha I feel your pain, mate.

Actually, the BA lounge at DXB is pretty good.

Anything is better than JFK.

When your playing Fifa, the other team score and they watch the whole replay and wait for the comp to start the play up again. Just ******* get on with it.

I make no apologies for my need to watch the replay. Sometimes I even watch the replays of my misses, just because I can. And I'm not even sorry.

But those people who don't skip the opening team list cut scene nonsense need to die. They're the worst.

To be fair I'm a very bad loser and I lose a lot :D

It can't be as bad as "camping" on Call of Duty, waiting ages for a kill and then getting shot whilst you quickly scratch your balls.

So did I :) I blame whoever wrote 'misses' instead of 'missus' recently.

Aaron Heslehurst what an annoying prat of a "Journo". Part of the new instant fast facts BBC brigade. I hope he gets the chop in the reorg.

BBC News obsession with what people are saying on twitter, which went so far yesterday to include 'celebrities tributes to Peggy Mitchell'

Oddjob 19-05-2016 04:00 PM

Oh and Gary Lineker on twitter, everything he 'tweets' must be on the BBC sport feed.

Oddjob 19-05-2016 04:02 PM

Parents of toddlers in public where they expect everybody in the vicinity of little Tabitha to acknowledge her because she is doing / saying something cute.

The only people who care about other peoples kids in public are female pensioners, that's it.
