Christmas TV ads.

It's only the end of the first week in November and I'm already sick of the wall-to-wall fake bomhomie designed to make us spend obscene amounts of money on stuff we don't need in pursuit of an idealised Christmas Day - which, let's be honest, never ever happens.

Yes - bah, humbug!

Or maybe just trying to get their work finished while travelling so they can spend more time with their kids? Not being defensive, cos I rarely used a laptop on a train.

The tapping is quite irritating tho' :)

Pundits going on about Chelsea's project when basically their stars are fu#king off and they have a transfer embargo. What else are they going to do? Let's hope Cahill buries one in the 90th to stick it up them tomorrow. COYP

Lots of people these days seem to want to use the word 'articulate' in business meetings. It is really starting to annoy me. Just stick to the more straightforward alternative explain, say, tell etc.

Things that annoy you
 
The painfully unfunny Iím A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here ads.
The Mariah Carey Walkers crisps ad.
The Mariah Carey Christmas song.
In fact, yes, Mariah Carey full stop.

If I hear that sodding woman say "Deliveroo" once more, I'll kick a football at her face. ******* voice sets my teeth right on edge. And the lottery and BT ads are winding me up to a similar extent as well.

People queuing up for bargains in Mothercare, then moaning that the price reductions arenít big enough.
People are losing their jobs, you selfish c units.

The feeling of your shoelace coming untied when your other foot stands on the lace.

Do they really deliver all that stuff in the same bag at the same time, and how much of it is still even tepid? Or are we being fed a lie?

If you read the small print in the advert you have to place separate orders for different vendors. I donít use take aways often but if I do I go directly to the company. I wouldnít use any of these food delivery companies. They take a large portion of the cost of the food from the supplier and often the food is cooked in shipping containers or industrial units where certain food standards and rules do not have to be observed.

I did see the small print re separate orders - is that a recent addition? And I wouldn't touch any of them with a bargepole either. They imply it all arrives at once, though? I am still confused. If you place orders with 3/4 different companies, how long does that all take? And I seen their delivery merchants; they all seem to be psychos who have been sacked by the likes of Dominos and Pizza Hut!

At the end of the advert she dives head first into the bag up/down to her calves. Guessing they can argue it's not to be taken literally :) never used them myself, and pretty sure we won't going forward.

The advert is really irritating and it's on all the time. Dread to think how many deliveries they have to make to get that back.

The Beer munch advert. Do the people who devise these sort of ads realise the more annoying the ad the less chance of the product doing well ?
