People in doctor's waiting rooms who carry on as if they're indoors. Some dirty old git with his manky foot out.
Feel like yakking up.

Roadworks where nobody ever seems to be doing anything. If your going to inconvenience us at least get on with it and minimise the time your doing it for instead of sitting on your arse doing piss all.

Try unplugging the power cable, removing the battery then press and hold the power switch for a minute.

Reinstall battery and reconnect power cable. Works sometimes.

I can only assume that whoever nicknamed that scrawny irritating wanker 'Bear' was taking the piss.

I think I have said previously on this thread that it annoys me getting charged to pay by debit card. It's usually 50p. The local curry house now charging 1.50 to pay for your food. Yes 1.50 TO F*CKING PAY!! Robbing f*cking c*nts. If you can't set up your pricing system to factor payment costs in F*CK OFF. Truth is they are trying to get you to pay by cash because they are on the f*cking fiddle. Therefore the charge needs to be made illegal. Nice curry though.:p

You know that old song, "There's a hole in my bucket".... metaphorically that was me on the phone with the telephone company yesterday!

No need to get annoyed. John Major introduced the traffic cone hotline which I'm confident will still be available to hear your complaint and deal with it promptly.

Robbing bastards. I take card for everything in my business; 99p regularly. It's just a con charging for this.:grrr:

Countryside towns who feel it's beneath them to get some bloody street lights. It's 2016 and you can't see where the **** you are going.

Thanks for the suggestion but I have now managed to switch it on.

For about 70 we get 200Mbit broadband plus their XL tv package and a mahoosive storage on TiVo which, in our case is the complete opposite of your experience. We'd never go back to the Sky equivalent which, for us, was way slower. They can stick the completely unnecessary compulsory home phone line up their arse mind.

Maybe the TiVo performance is location related?

It's a really funny take on his real name - Edward i.e Teddy hahahahaha!

The crossing of those rocks last night really pissed me off. Firstly, the silly little f*cker deliberately placed a log, which was exactly long enough to span the gap, right next to where they had to cross. He then showed us how easy it was to simply jump said gap.

The 'celebs' were then left with a no win scenario. Jump the gap and they would be rebuked for endangering themselves and the group or use the log as a makeshift bridge, (which they initially chose), and then.....

Townies moving into my old village demanding street lights which, as a community, we'd been more than happy living without for nigh on a thousand years.

Its artificial light that fecks your night sight in the first place.

Check the VM forums, Blind. It's a known long term issue with TiVo boxes. They're woefully under spec'd for the job apparently. VM are supposedly about roll out an upgraded box, maybe you got one of them?

We got on this a few weeks ago after realising how shit it was paying 45 a month for decaying talktalk internet and phone (no TV), it's well good!
