As the thread relating to this is now into page 21 maybe it's time to think about a possible cure for the above annoyances, any ideas :?:

    Wouldn't work. Getting sand in your speedos is too annoying.....


    What about nerve gas??

    The cure is simple - just live your lives according to my rules, foibles & quirks. And get an aptitude for mind-reading when it changes for no obvious reason.

    Live life how I expect it to work and you won't go far wrong, except that you'll upset the rest of the world, who might see things differently (i.e. wrongly).

    Sorted.

    I have always liked this poem. A bit of an antidote to the modern world. Although it doesn't rhyme......which is annoying :wink:

    Perhaps go and live somewhere that people have real problems for a while?

    Are you my girlfriend?

    No, he's my wife.

    I'm not my wife. She asks me questions to which she already has an answer, then gives me the correct answer after I've provided a different one. Why ask in the first place? Put that one in trivial annoyances.

    Know what you mean mate but were looking for cures here :P

    So far and much to my surprise it's 'bompington' that has struck the same cord as myself, maybe a month on the Gaza strip or a spell in Rwanda might just help balance priorities a little :wink:
    I spent just a fortnight surveying a Russian Petrochemical works some twenty years ago near a place called Yaraslavl and I was so pleased to enter the Irish Bar at Moscow Airport on the way home it was untrue.
    I had been staying in the best Hotel there and was entertained each night by the sound of nomad kids breaking up firewood to stay warm outside :!:

    A cure for anyone annoyed by yobs who spit in the street is to ask the occasional one 'aw bless, don't like the taste of sp*nk then?' (note, Ive tried this a few times and they do get aggressive and ratty cos they're invariably incredibly homophobic)... always makes me smile just to think that's why they're spitting when I see them doing it.
