Is your cat making too much noise? Stomping around making you craaaazy?
That reminded me of a complete **** that used to work in my old office.
My ex company sometimes auctions off returned stock to the staff using a closed auction type of thing. Good electronic gear. One year when the results were announced, almost every item was won by this ****, who just happened to be best mates with the lady who ran the auction. She sold everything she won at a profit. Things changed somewhat after that but her name was dirt from that day onward. When she left a card and collection went round and the card was pretty much defaced. I put in some Swedish coins.
It still amazes me how some people will happily act like a dirtbag to make a few £ off friends and colleagues.
People riding bikes with no lights (at night), I’ve seen so many over the past few weeks. As well as stupid it’s utterly selfish. Imagine hitting one of them and killing them through no fault of your own.
As a keen cyclist myself this annoys me as well - stupid and selfish is right.
I did see something particularly idiotic on a winter night a couple of years ago. I passed a guy who was riding with no light on the back, and a small, red rear light on the front. If you were driving towards him on a country lane you might easily think you were on the wrong side of the road...
So it seems the sh*t Christmas adverts started again tonight which means my current hate will be:
Christmas adverts during the World Cup.
Anyone that is in professional football that doesn't want to bring politics into football. Especially Klopp who allows his team to support great causes to pressure governments but feels we shouldn't do that at international level. Absolute clown.
Definitely. The world cup is an incredibly rare chance to shine a light on the vile practices of the regime in Qatar and globally shame them / support the oppressed.
We need much more speaking out and this kind of thing https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/63066393
I’m no fan of Klopp, but to be fair to him that’s not quite what he said - as quoted in today’s Independent. He thinks it unfair that players and managers involved in the tournament are now being expected to speak out against the regime and the exploitative working practices involved in putting on the event. He says this should have been done by journalists, football authorities and others as soon as the venue was announced twelve years ago.
My own view is that major footballing countries, starting with England should have been prepared to withdraw unilaterally from the competition in protest. Better yet would have been a block withdrawal by the UEFA federation who could have proposed a rival tournament in its place. Of course the FIFA hierarchy has changed since 2010, but does anyone think it is squeaky-clean and operating in the best interests of the game now?
People moaning about fireworks
Firework fortnight .
Inconsistentcy of Watford FC
Woke football pundits who bang on about human rights in Qatar whilst simultaneously taking the Qatar buck . White liberal wokery in its finest . And are you Wokies on this forum going to be quiet about this or not ? . *Woke* white liberals who hijack minority causes in order to promote their own virtue whilst simultaneously not caring one iota about said cause .
People who overuse the word 'woke' so disliking slavery and genocide is considered up there with neopronouns.
People who overuse "woke" in order to promote their "wokery"
In unnver words "woke white liberals" .
Woke white liberals who think those who have a different skin colour to theirs care about their wokery .
Ha ha ha .
Towns and villages that sound woke, but are not, like Woking, Wokingham and Wokefield.
People with insomnia and extreme liberal agendas. Double woke.
Eggs with two yellow bits. Double wokers
Woke me up before you go go. Jolly, but not Wham!’s finest moment.
Small bottles are more expensive than the larger ones
I drink Wokozade to power my social justice and condescension to minorities.
Let alone Wokul Harum and their ‘Whiter shade of pale’ which was a very racist woke hit.
You do realise that the more we go on the more it goes to prove their point. Don’t know how but that’s how it seems to woke…. I mean work.
I drink red bull, just to make sure I stay a woke.
Restaurants that expect you to download their menu to your mobile phone by scanning a QR code, instead of providing a proper printed menu.
It was annoying but understandable during covid, but definitely not acceptable now.
It's not difficult.
Large Quarterpounder meal with Diet Coke.
No need for a menu
The existential crisis of modern mankind right there.
I’ll have Woke Zero please. All the moral superiority without the guilt.
Fish lips, (lip augmentation). Does any person who has this done look anything other than utterly horrific, or am I missing something?
This happened to the son of some people I knew growing up. He was driving down an area with no lights at night, two kids (teens, old enough to know better) were on a single bike with no lights. Both killed. He was cleared of doing anything wrong but he was utterly ruined mentally, not to mention the impact on the kids' families. Tragic stuff.
You joke. But reminds me of something else we find irritating.
The drive through menu at McDonald's is right up at the end. So when we as a family are trying to decide what to have, we can't see what flavour of mcflurry or what drink comes with a kids meal or what the limited burgers are, or indeed the prices.
We get to the front and cause a delay as we have a look through all the options before ordering 4 big mac meals as usual.. All they need to do is have the menu set back 1 or 2 cars.
