    1.Cyclist clubs that cycle 4-5 aside in packs of 20-30 thinking they own the roads when there are perfectly good cycle lanes available for them to use!

    2.bosses

    3.''selfies''

    4.going to the barbers and saying ''a little off the top please'' and then coming out looking like a monk.

    5. spending all day washing and polishing the car just to have a bird **** on it or heading up the road and the dirty old farmers plowing through the mud then onto the roads.

    Well, if I was a vegetarian and I decided to shyte all over the road and paths I am sure there would be something said!
    All shyte is shyte in my book!
    Does not smell or taste good when flicked up in your face from a mountain bike tyre!

    Back onto dog poop over here again, the same person who i moaned about a while ago is still letting his dog poo in public and then pretending to pick it up, he even goes down with a bag after looking around, but then when nobody is looking he just scrumples the bag up and puts it back in his pocket....if he goes to the effort of pretending, why dont you just f*cking do it you tw4t!!!!

    Another compaint to the council.

    I may even get a bag of manure and dump it at their front door!!!

    EBay skanks. This story is about colleague and friend of mine at work. All Wednesday morning he'd be bragging about a deal for a seagate 4TB external hard deal which he had found on fleabay. It cost him £80 which isn't a bad deal....on his lunch break if travelled to the sorting office some 5 miles from the office to collect his order. 45 minutes later he returned in silence and sat at his chair. 'well where is it'? I said. He replied 'mother truckers' then said nothing for the next hour and then explained that he got to the sorting office skipped to the entrance ,signed for his package for the royal mail guy to give him an envelope...just an envelope with nothing in it but a paper clip lol I never cried with laughter so much! Brilliant entertainment but shame on the scammers

    sky tv and there rubbish telly, rubbish tinterweb service and there dog poo prices for loyal customers!
    they have the monopoly on tv, so why fleece loyal long term customers!
    new customers get a cracking deal!
    would love to go with virgin, but sadly unavailable up here!
    may have to get my haggling whip out and threaten them to go forth and multiply!










    then return as a new customer!

    My brother in law jumps from one service to another annually to get the new customer discounts. For me personally, I don't have the time of day. On Virgin though, you can pay 12 month advance line rental fees which saves money, and they have been upgrading my broadband speed at no extra cost.

    I hate work.

    Reasons are;
    - Returned off annual leave last week - worked til 10pm every night to catch up.

    - Building work is being carried out on site - went into the basement thismorning to find all cable trays ripped from the ceiling by the JCB during demolishing, pipework bust - live cables everywhere. Central heating system has drained into the basement. (builders rectifying at the moment)

    - Few members of staff on site are using oil-filled radiators for the office (fine, all PAT tested.etc) - found two radiators on a double-socket and one running two radiators off a 5-way extension.

    Common sense is out the window here - and I get snotty phone calls when downtime runs on for slightly longer than anticipated when carrying out a changeover to a new leased line - out of ours and after a long day in work may I add (3 routers configs changed, dns records, a records.etc).
    They wont employ another member of IT due to cost, I have reams of paperwork to catch up on (spent most of Sunday behind the laptop).

    Could be worse - I have a roof over my head, a nice car, a great girlfrend and a smashing bunch of mates.

    Brilliant scam, a guy at work ordered an xbox years ago, and yes it was true, he got an empty box with an X on it - it could not have happened to a more deserving arrogant idiot, first class, it was very cheap for a good reason!

    Tourists

    When you are on the beach enjoying the sun then you are on holiday
    When you are in your car driving on unfamiliar roads then you are not on holiday

    I was overtaking some guy and as I was level with the rear of his car he started to drift out (no indicator) to overtake a bus - I slammed on the brakes but too late - bruised my bumper on his rear bumper whilst his bike rack, on the rear of his 4x4, dug into the side of my NSF wing

    [​IMG]

    Luckily the guy behind me stopped so I have a witness!
