Surely there no longer stands any bathroom countertop yet to be permanently soiled by a carelessly abandoned (yet still plugged in) set of women's hair straighteners?

People who queue to use the travelators at airports and get beaten
to the gate by commuters walking the floor.

It's truly amazing, especially considering the 'special relationship' and the 'hands across the ocean' between the US & UK.

You'd think that 2 million New Yorkers would line the streets for an annual St Georges Day parade rather than pretend to have Irish descent.

It's really staggering that St Patrick's Day is celebrated in every country on earth yet St Georges Day is, on the whole, only celebrated by neo nazis.

As you've mentioned yourself, England barely celebrates St. George's Day, so it's no wonder no one in America does.

Even so, people of Irish descent in the US far outnumber English/UK, with I think Germans top.

I agree - but with that shop you get what you (don't) pay for.

It's cheap as chips because it is run on a shoestring with too few poorly paid staff that are worked like dogs and who live in fear of not getting any hours next week.

If you want exemplary service pay the premium and go to one of the more highly staffed more expensive shops.

You can't have your cake and eat it.

This just isnt true

Yesterday I bought some lemon drizzle cake. And I ate it all.

And if he really ate all of it and ate it too quickly, he might well have it again. Though it might lack a certain something presentationally

And if he were one of those unpleasant creatures that regurgitate and re-eat food (I understand these are known as dogs), he could have it, eat it, have it, eat it, have it, eat it and have it again.

English Teachers who write in school reports 'Spelling is very important as it contributes to a thirs of the marks in SPAG. Reviewing your work for spelling errors will assist'.

And then, at a Parents' evening, when I say I didn't understand the sentence and should 'thirs' be 'third', it's suggested it's a typo. A bloody typo! Where's the reviewing of your work Mrs Teacher? My daughter will be suggesting any future spelling errors are pen mistakes.

Yoda 19-03-2015 11:55 AM

Sadly, she had probably did review it and still not notice the errors!

Plus, I believe draft reports are read by either the Head of Dept, Deputy or Head (depending on the size of your school etc), so they haven't corrected her poor English either.

Allowing "suggestions" in the Transfer forum thread. An open invitation for every loony to fill the site with drivel. Can't we section it off into a sub-forum?

I remember being shocked by this behaviour in Holland back in the early nineties.

It's here now. :rolleyes:

Saw a lady get to the top of a escalator and just stand at the top with her suitcase, while loads of people were smashing in to the back of her, she started shouting how rude they were... Someone had to activate the emergency stop button, absolutely carnage. Lady yesterday managed to take up 3 loading bays at ikea by parking parallel, when people moaned she said "I'm not comfortable with reversing"

People are stupid.

TopBaller 19-03-2015 02:54 PM

Right now everything, waked up pissed off

Taylor Swift's 1989 was my album of 2014 and Carly Rae Jepson's new song is my favourite song right now
