Windsor, I must say I do agree with your views on candlelit vigils for accident victims. I think the tradition started in America with the Elvis fans holding candlelit vigils every year on the date he died. I myself cannot see the point in standing outside in the freezing cold - holding a candle. It can't bring the dead person back! So why on earth would you bother?

Men who wear flip flops to go shopping.

It is not the bloody beach.

Just saying......

Not sure if this is the right place to post but ill-conceived brand names sometimes bother me.

Superdry - great if it is for outdoor clothing but when it ends up on the waistband of your pants my first thought is of incontinence products. Seriously guys?

I remember the first time I ever saw a Superdrug when I was a kid, I already had been told what "drugs" were, and that they were very bad indeed young man, so I thought all the shoppers were going in there to buy heroin and crack, hahahaha

Also there are lots of other retardedly named products out there. Like the advert I saw the other day,...

The fucking internet. Going slower than a lift ride shared by Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams. Crawling at a pace that makes an ALS-riddled snail seem like a space rocket.... Is this just in my pencil neck of the woods or is any of you guys also suffering at the moment?

I had trouble getting online the other day. Kept getting a DNS error when trying to access the site. Every other site I wanted to access seemed to be ok.

Over zealous supermarket security guards. Every time I walk through the door of their establishment, the uniformed oaf (who no doubt failed in his application to become a policeman) in our local Co Op looks at me as if I am just about to commit a very serious offence.

I had a frank and forthright exchange of views with him this morning, telling him that I had been shopping there for years and never actually caused any damage or stolen anything, so there is no need to look at me like I'm a potential suicide bomber or ram raider. I got so irate with the "I'm just doing my job mate", reply that I stole a large packet...

Personality assessments in online job applications.

How is asking me to click boxes on 500 questions (okay I exaggerate but not by much) along the sub-textual lines of "will you nick from me store?", "are you high maintenance employee" and "do you have the capacity to converse with others?" a sensible way of examining my suitability for the job?

I dare you to go a week without saying or summat.

And don't start giving them fucking ideas RA for fuck's sake. See you're all turning a non-crisis into a potential crisis with your yakking, guys.......

everyone go do something else, go squeeze a stress ball or something. LFN go and find yourself another avatar that's nowhere near as good as the old gorilla scratching his balls one......... and TF go and self-"censor" more of your old posts by editing them so they only contain a single "."
I dare you to go a week.
