I'm slightly in awe of Costa Coffee Baristas, it has to be said. I love the way they never seem to run out of utensils and can make so many coffees in such a small, confined space.

I know that but I can't remember seeing a great big sign outside Heathrow saying LHR. It's pretentious bollocks!

Perhaps LAX is used by people as a name for the airport because it distinguishes it from smaller airports within the LA conurbation e.g. Long Beach.

LA International should suffice as that's it's 'proper' name. :)

If we're revisiting LA(X), I still think the full 'Los Angeles' is more polite and humble, and becoming of someone not born there; 'LA' sounds puffed up and pretentious.

When is Crawley International going to get a second operative runway?

I hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy I really do, but can the rest of us get on with our (obviously not as important) lives without having to recognise every 3 minutes you are with child.

I was on my train companies Twitter and a pregnant woman complained it was too busy, she couldn't get a seat and if anything happened to her unborn child she was holding Southeastern trains directly responsible. She then followed it up 5 mins later saying she had battled through, removed (her word) someone from a seat but that it was too hot and she was uncomfortable, she then followed up by complaining as she was worried she wouldn't be able to get off the busy train and is she missed her stop she was holding Southeastern trains directly responsible!!

Get a different ******* train - the world doesn't revolve around you !!!!!

Nice clip Chocky :)

How things have changed in a relatively short period of time, I bet there's not an office party in the country now where you can smoke.

W H Smith - generally overpriced, then when you arrive at the counter they try to sell you a slab of chocolate the size of Liechtenstein

Not according to the head of Ofsted it doesn't. Heat milk in vessel with thermometer to tell you it is right temperature (often eyesight must fail as it is scalding hot), then place ground coffee in cup on end of handle, click in place and allow boiling water to run through into cup, pour milk in. Ask if you want chocolate on top. Seriously, if you think that is any kind of a skill that is annoying. :D

And they scan a voucher you do not want or have any interest in. I make a point of shoving it back in their hand

BBC for not making another series of The Trip, but carrying on with stuff like The Voice, Murder In Paradise, Casualty and Holby City.

Annoy me.

Somebody calling my Dad a prick, when he is not here to defend himself. I know my Father would not need me to defend him.

I will not forget what was said, or who by.
