    Tom Jones. I would not go to the end of my street to watch him, and with the advent of "The Voice" he seems to be like sh1t in a field; everywhere. I've lost count of how many times I've changed channel due to him.


    I am kind of with you on this, he had a good singing voice but when you read biographies of him etc and realise how commercial he is it takes the shine off for me.

    I most certainly didn't - Tom is a God and to diss him in my neck of the woods is likely to leave me hung from the nearest tree by some middle aged woman's knickers! Retraction please ;)

    Mainstream music

    What happens if/when the band you like becomes mainstream?

    ;)

    Ditch them! New Order was a good example - brilliant until they done World in Motion.
    Pet Shop Boys were ok until Heartbeat!
    At least I know Folkstorm will never get a major label deal! Check it out on Youtube.

    you lost my vote when you mentioned the Pet Shop Boys..

    Try Pig Vomit - probably about as far from mainstream as you can get


    Come on, they were ok at first, especially their 12" singles and me and the future mrs Byke68 met because of them....er....... yeah...right, see what you mean, they've got a lot to answer for..................................!

    People who say:
    Pacific instead of specific
    Refuge instead of refuse (waste)

    The "can't park" chain reaction - Muppets who can't park their car meaning you end up parking wonky as well then getting the blame from the guy next to you in the carpark when you get back off your train and the intial culprit has long vacated.

    In addition - when you park in a relatively empty car park, well out of the way in the hope your car won't get scratched. Only to return to a still relatively empty car park, with hundreds of free spaces to find some muppet has parked about 4 inches from you.

    Was it someone on here who said him & his wife went dogging but by the time she'd parked the car properly everyone else had finished and gone home.

    People who sit in front of you in those dark, winter traffic jams and hold their car on the foot-brake the entire time, thereby blinding you with their brake-lights. I sometimes think that mine is the only car with a handbrake.

    Hmm, possible. Is it one flash or two once I'm parked?

    +1. Lazy feckwits. How hard is it to put your hand brake on. I feel that I too am the only one in the queue that is considerate enough not to dazzle the driver behind me.

    A certain North east based internet bike shop. Ordered shorts, they need to get them from supplier so they re delayed a week and then it takes them a week to get to me. I ordered the wrong size (my fault) so i return them which given where I live takes another week.

    They receive them and tell me that the new ones have been dispatched last monday (fine). I ring up today and discover that they have not been dispatched because they are waiting for more from the suppliers...

    No e-mail have been sent by them in this time - I don't mind waiting, but FFS e-mail me and tell me these things!!

    grrr!

    You're not the only one. I know where my handbrake is and know how to use it instead of my foot sitting on the brake pedal. Is it sooo difficult to use a handbrake? Muppets. And another thing - when pulling out at a junction, look LEFT and RIGHT! And yet another thing - give way to THE RIGHT at roundabouts!

    My Craft cycling mitts are designed to be really lightweight and minimalist. But then they go and put about 3 layers of tags, with washing instructions in just about every language, on the inside. So every time I put them on I have to carefully try to get the tags on the top of my hand, so they don't irritate my palms. And I know that if I try to cut them off, I'll end up with some little, scratchy bits!

    The most annoying things in the world, ever!
