I assume they are competition for the Boris bikes, but I've never seen one being used yet.

I've seen them being used a lot; and I think they should be (part of) the future of urban travel. I agree, however, that something needs to be done about how they are left when not in use.

Award ceremonies really piss me off.

The rich and famous pat each other on the back and award prizes for being rich and famous.

Can you invite SC up for the weekend, making sure he brings his socks and snooker balls and wait outside until Gary Line Aker comes out and do his swede in?

Please ?

Itís an awful indictment on our society. The already grotesquely and unfairly rewarded being rewarded some more.

A woman today on the train was annoyed at me for looking over some bloke's shoulder at his laptop; he was working on an excel spreadsheet. She looked utterly perplexed and indignant, which only served to make me more determined to keep looking at it. I've noticed similar before when looking over people's shoulders at their smart-phones. I'm so defiant over this issue that I've learnt to pull silly faces behind their backs, like I'm totally engrossed in what they're doing.

It's a public space FFS. Where I choose to rest my eyes has nothing to do with anyone. It's entirely the user's responsibility.

Muppet deserves to have you looking over his shoulder. Shouldn't be working on a laptop in a public place. GDDR and all that. You never know who's looking.

Was sat next to a girl on northern line a few weeks ago. She worked for barclays. I know that because she logged onto her work account and worked when she got a link to the Internet at each station. Even with my poor eyesight I saw peoples names and details.

So you continue to look over people's shoulders, you may find out something useful :p

Apart from if it's in a van with Neil Shipperly.

People who work in HR and recruitment are particularly bad for this. Once on the tube I saw someone looking at the CV of someone who worked for my company. Fortunately I wasnít his boss!

On a train waiting to leave Victoria one night, I heard a call from someone in the same carriage telling someone on the phone that all his team had just been made redundant :veryangry

These two divs on the train yesterday who decided to take two whole tables on either side of the aisle rather than share and then talk extra loudly due to the gap. They were talking about not paying tip for waiters at restaurants as standard as if it was crazy to do so. They were saying that it’s tough as a student.

I regretfully due to them annoying me for 50 minutes broke and said something to point out that is pretty bad behaviour and that either as a student you have no excuse. If you can pay to dine you can pay the tip, I qualified my outburst with you have said this so loud the whole carriage can hear, that I could do anything but not hear. They didnt have the brain power to react and just just started giggling, like idiots.

I did regret my action as they will go on in their lives being divs and it’s not good to confront strangers but their view of the world was very entitled and it did shut them up.

Who knew?!

James Haskellís tactic seems to be that everyone else has to either keep away from Wright (not easy in a camp) or facilitate his mood until heís happy and upbeat again.

BLACK FRIDAY.
The day of the year that proves that we as consumers are being unmercifully ripped off for the other 364.
