Reminds me of "I'm not being racist but..." This is inevitably followed by a mind bogglingly racist diatribe.

Especially when doubled up with "Trust me, I'm a lawyer".

Why to people feel the need to add their photo to emails? Where I work it's akin to receiving an email from a sex doll with all the pouty faces.

Football - I'd just seen Benteke's agent say a deal wasn't close at the time

If I am standing at a crossing waiting for the green man so I can cross, and you then join me at the crossing with presumably the same intention, you can be sure I've already pushed the feckin' button to activate the bloody thing. You don't have to bash out some feckin' Morse code on it. It is tantamount to saying you don't trust me to have pushed the button, and yes, I find that annoying. I'm not just standing there for my bleedin' health! F*ckwit.

Add in the idiots that stand pressing the train door buttons before they are lit up. It's not going to open until the driver is ready no matter how many times you press it.

For the vast majority of crossings the button does nothing- its a placebo.

No problem, happy to share top tips for taping the Top 40 off the radio as well, even better now it is on Radio 2's FM frequency. A few to kick off - Not sure what the fuss about Chrome Dixide is, but TDK are reliable and always use pause, not stop, when recording.

By the way, is your profile pic actually one of my school bag from 1980?

It's actually a pic of one our very own Dorking eagle was crowing about finding on another website. I was looking for a picture of an earlier version from 1979, and came across it on a Google search.

Chris Sophie x shamelessly ripped it off I think ;)

iirc (and I probably don't) mine was also white, but had crystal palace along the top, or possibly along a sash. Just remember it was class, and pissed all over all the wanky Liverpool bags that were all the rage at the time. Think my mum got it in a sports shop in Bromley.

I had one for school in what would have been about 1979/1980ish. From memory the eagle on the club crest was very wonky.

BUT as has been said, it was still a million times better than the kids who had Liverpool ones with long lists of all the years they'd won trophies along the side.

The one pictured I was very delighted to obtain from ebay a few years ago, and it is in stunning condition. Apologies if I was a little over enthusiastic about it, but it is a thing of beauty.

The club shop produced a weird 'bowling bag' last year with a similar design but long girly handles. Don't think they have sold many at all.

Yeah sounds like you had the same version as mine.

Companies pre authorising your card, then putting through the "actual" charge, and you having to wait for the pre authorisation amount to drop out. In the meantime you are denied access to your own money, GRRRRR
