Itís probably driven by the Tories, taking us back to the 70ís/80ís, to go with their Thatcher cosplay.

Every time we used to have a kick about down the park as kids, someone would end up with poo on their trainers. In one memorable moment, my best mate went to block a shot, but the kid shooting not only kicked the ball towards him but also a big dollop of diarrhoea doggy poo. It splattered all over his hair. He had to run home to deal with it leaving a park of kids in a fit of hysterical laughter.

I was a keeper so my first job, before heroically tipping shots around the pullovers, was to examine the pen area for Frido's leftovers. You got to know which areas of Fort Neef rec were in need of warning signs for, old ladies carrying handbags, diving goalies and those outfield players with a tendancy to make every tackle a sliding one.
Last time I was in the Rec they had an astro-turf 5-aside pitch where the old tennis courts were. Not an aspiring athlete in site. I did see a dog owner picking up though. Something you would have never seen in the 70's. As for the new generation of park ball players. They were probably all at home doing an on-line course on "how to become a pro-footballer in 50 easy lessons" or playing 'football manager."
Looking back, our crew of wannabee football stars would have given up our Peter Bonetti gloves or our tins of Dubbin for that sort of facility.

Bell end step sons (again!!) that lack the brains to realise that leaving an under the weather cat with the shits unattended downstairs with no litter tray, while they laze about recovering from a few hours labouring.
Me and the missus were thrilled to come back to the inevitable after our day at work. I got to clean the stinking litter tray from that morning still sat outside, while she got to ditch the handbag our Charlie decided to shat on as a substitute. Removing the contents of the bag while runny slop was still on top was a bit of a challenge, but at least he hadn't got the floor this time.
Needless to say both got full barrels for their idiocy, with eldest manbaby being abruptly awoken from his early evening siesta which did cheer me up a bit from the trauma of burned nostrils and watering eyes.

Up here in Norfolk it is the main whine all over village Facebook groups, so they're just about one step from naming and shaming the owners around the village in a bid to halt rising turd spread. They don't know they're born when you consider what we went through as kids in the 70's growing up around Ashburton fields having a kickabout.

The Men's urinals at work and the inability of most male staff to stand close enough for it to catch the drips when finished.

You have to stand at them with your legs open to stop standing in the pool of piss forming on the floor in front.

Getting a new computer (Good thing... not annoying) than having to jump through hoops and frustration getting the thing back so it's usable/how you like it.

Plus some security setting somewhere (probably either in Firefox or the virus protection software on the new computer) causing all sorts of obstacles.

Software tools that needs reloading, but don't have a CD drive anymore, or the software is not supported anymore, so have to buy upgrades... and this is after only one day.

And don't get me started on "Live Chat" that turns out to be a Bot that is as inflexible as a brick wall... Surely the term Live Chat would give the impression you are going to be in contact with a live person?

Yes, this is supremely annoying. Vodafone do this, itís really unhelpful. They also make you answer about 25 questions via an automated system when you call them too. Both feel like methods to waste the customersí time in the hope they give up.

When it was a home game there the first thing the home team did was form a line and clear the pitch. Always the home teamís responsibility 😀 we would have dream of an dog shit free pitch and an Astro would have made us think we had gone to heaven!

So you did pull the trigger. Congrats!

I have found that as soon as you ask the Bot a complicated question it almost always comes back with "A personal representative will be available soon to assist" or some such.
Of course, then there's the interminable wait.

Charlie Stayt- comes across as a sneery individual

I just went through one... please say your first name. Went well. Please say your second name. Didn't go well, had to spell it.

Finally got to a "representative" and the first question she has is, "what's your first and last name".... :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

Will people contact the press for anything to claim 15mins of fame (courtesy of Popbitch, and do mind your lunch)?

Had to laugh--- she's got dog poo hanging out of her mouth but she manages, as she says, "to take a snap." Can't see her getting a snog in the near future.
