Ketchup water has ruined many a meal when I've thoughtlessly not shaken the bottle first.

Agree with this, also pizza water, I had one the other day and I had to tip it up to drain it off.

Hmmm the best ones are far from that, the worse ones I would agree with. Had a few PAs working for me. The three best ones have all gone on to far better careers one is Head of Communications for a major company. One a senior Project Manager, the third is working as a sub contractor on Email installations. All three were brillant PAs all suffered from one thing a lack of self confidence once you got past that and helped develop the confidence there was no way they were going to remain PAs. All three still keep in contact and remain close friends.
The ones to avoid at all costs are those that use the position of their boss to try and influence others. Also be prepared to listen my favourite story on that is a Director who was an excellent guy to work with but had a few issues on management, he threw his toys out of the pram to his PA over the phone after a flight cancellation told her to get him a flight to Bristol airport 20 minutes latter we had phone call in taxi in Paris could not be done best to fly to Heathrow get train to Bristol. Foolishly he decided he knew better and said just get me on any flight to Bristol put phone down, by the time we were at airport had phone call back saying sorted but he would need to change flights be better to go to Heathrow. That point we left him to go to a different terminal......he got there eventually via Jersey and an 8 journey as he had to wait at Jersey and the flight to Jersey from Paris was a 3 hour wait.
I was told the story from the other side she tried to tell him three times he was not having any of it and eventually she said ok Bristol it was....at Jersey he phoned her up and had a real go at her and all she said was I tried not once not twice but three times you thought you knew better. You might be a top engineer which he was but you are not a PA and put phone down on him. Next morning he arrived with a box of chocolates apoligised, and told her she ever let him do that again he would sack her. They had great working relationship afterwards.

Now that is really annoying.
What happens if they fall asleep at lunch at work? That should be counted as one sleep and they should be forced at knife point to either stay awake for one whole night to make up for it or bring their flight forward a day.

Yes, I know. I have too much time on my hands.

Women using the word 'vino' instead of wine. It's actually a waste of your own time love. Two syllables instead of one.

Especially infuriating if preceded with the word 'cheeky'.

The Norwoodsman 05-03-2015 03:57 PM

People (usually tourists) who get out their seats and try to panic-fight their way to the doors on rush-hour packed tube trains when the train has only just left the previous station. This leaves them pointlessly rammed into non-existent space looking more and more frantic for two minutes until they rock up at Bank or Kings Cross etc. and half the carriage disperses anyway.

Chill Your Damn Tits.

Speaking of which, 7 more sleeps until I go to Bali :lux: :p

People who use words that make them sound like a simpleton or a child. For instance, saying Hollibobs instead of holiday. Really gets on my nerves, especially if they then say something like "only 7 more sleeps til my hollibobs".

Nigel_Scarfer 05-03-2015 04:21 PM

That stupid twat with the video camera at Selhurst who parades up and down during the match looking for stupid wankers who want to wave to the big screen. Do it at half time if you have to, but i'm trying to watch a game of football. I don't need you crouching in front of me trying to catch my attention in the hope that I will wave and clap like a ******** seal.

And it's not a one off either

People who form queues yonks before boarding the plane has even started. You have your allocated seat number, why do you want to sit on the plane any longer than need be ?

That is exactly what I mean. Why write or say something that makes you look backwards?
