    On the subject of food...I get irked when I have to cut the skin between sausages. How the fark are pre-cut vegatables available in this day and age but you still have to seperate sausages when removing them from the packaging? Although I'll happily chop up my own veg as I hate lazy cnuts who can't be arsed to chop a few carrots. I'm annoyed with myself it seems.

    You get cross that people can't peel and slice vegetables but you still have to find a pair of scissors to separate a couple of snorkers? Decaf, my good man, decaf. :wink:

    We've touched on Americanisms but it does my nut in to hear and read not about a tv series being shown, but that season 4 (or whatever) airs November. I can't be doing with that.

    Long one. Cinemas. Everything about them, from having to roll up well before the scheduled start time to be sure of getting in, sitting through 25 minutes of trails, ads & warnings, watching kids who clearly haven't paid for the better seats sit in them anyway, and the whole experience from start to end punctuated with the sound of people who really can't survive two hours without a gallon of coke and a jumbo sized tub of popcorn or a half hundredweight of sweets that come in the nosiest bags on the planet so the whole film is accompanied by a soundtrack of rustling, slurping & crunching, and the lights don't go down these days so the film never quite draws you in like it would in proper dark, and at the end as soon as the first line of the credits appears everyone jumps to their feet to rush out leaving a pile of discarded junk food debri all over the place as it's someone else's problem not theirs. With hindsight I'd rather have waited and spent the cash on the DVD of Skyfall than watch it in that atmosphere.

    This is why I go to the cinema once in a blue moon and when I do, I choose the Everyman in Hampstead. You're sat with a better class of person and they serve beer and olives.

    Dates on tv being phrased as "November Five" instead of "November the Fifth" etc.

    "Ancient astronaut theorists" (the phrase, the people, their hair and their presence on the History channel).

    The use of numbers to replace vowels in words, e.g. sk8ter, driv3r.

    Utensils and other mundane domestic items emblazoned with verbs that describe their purpose, such as towels embroidered with word "DRY".

    "Raising awareness" and "standing shoulder-to-shoulder".

    'Coffee culture', captchas, keffiyeh and 'collector's editions' of anything.

    When people talk about travelling and say they want to ‘do’ countries, or have ‘done’ countries.

    No, you can have one though.

    this is always pretentious women in starbucks who say " can i get a lar-tay"

    No love. It's not fecking self-service. You can HAVE one. Think they watch too many episodes of friends.

    Not just those pretentious women in starbucks I'm afraid, it's rife in London - both sexes and all ages. I have to stop myself from screaming at them.

    When footballers sheperd the ball out without touching it and not allowing an opposing player to gain control, that has got to be obstruction.
    I've been thinking that for years, yet referees seem to think it ok.

    Footballers sliding on their knees when they score a goal.
    Pulling opponent's shirts in the penalty area at free kicks and corners.

    It's just a part of the game. I thought you'd played a bit, De Sisti?

    I used to play, but that was in a bygone era (leather casey balls with stitching). :wink:

    So you must have surely shielded a ball out of play at some time or other? I used to play fullback and probably did it a handful of times per match. Completely normal and legal by the game's rules.

    It's perfectly legal, as long as the ball is close enough that the defender could kick it if he wanted to. But I agree it's annoying when the other team does it.

    But that always has comedy potential, like the player at the weekend who misjudged the slipperiness of the grass and ended up landing on his head.

    I find it more annoying that referees don't do anything about it.

    with that in mind, I'd like to add:

    People who serve in coffee shops and think a cappuccino is a latte in a cappuccino cup with some chocolate sprinkled on top. It annoys me much more than it should.

    The use of Exclusive in adverts and the media.
    The use of "Our thoughts are with the officer's family and friends " when theres a tragedy
    which involves a death. I always get the impression that the people who make that statement
    feel as if they have to say it, but don't really mean it.

    Not all BMW drivers are bad. From being a good SEAT Arosa driver (1.0mpi) I've just become a good BMW driver (320d Touring). :wink:
