    First learning of a 14,000 pay cut (a junior position being the only option left to me in the new restructure) in an open meeting, then being told that "but don't forget, we're all in this together" - yeah, that boiled my piss alright!

    If you consider that insignificant then I'd hate to hear about the significant stuff.

    For me, its the sound of others eating in a quiet room.

    Something which annoys me on a regular basis: bicycle torches. Simple enough device you'd a thought. A light with a battery and a switch. How could such a simple thing be annoying? Well for some unfathomable reason, the switch doesn't switch the light on and off. I mean what fucking genius decided that what you actually want to do when you hit a switch on a torch is to change its mode. It can change from an annoying flash to another yet mode annoying flash.

    To switch the fucker off you have to hold the button in for what seems like an eternity. Being careful not to accidentally switch it into some other, hitherto unimaginably more spastic flashing frenzy. Makes me feel quite tense just thinking about it...

    Screwd.

    I can hardly even bring myself to speak of it.

    One buys rolls of plastic bags, for the purpose of picking up dog excrement in public parks and such like ...

    ... I don't mean just random dog mess that happens to be lying around. I mean, for when I've taken my own hounds for a walk and they have made a contribution, and it needs to be carried to a nearby bin, set aside just for the purpose ... just to clarify ...

    ... but anyway, sometimes, with the cheap ones, they make them (a) too thin and (b) too difficult to tear apart to take the next one off the roll. I think that requires real imagination and probably a lot of trial and error. How can they be both ? But when you eventually do get one separated from the roll, you find you've put your
    finger through it.

    Or worse, you actually do use it, picking up the dog mess, and find out then, as there's a hideous, mind frightening "follow through" onto your hand ...




    Remember folks, some "economies" just don't make sense...

    Babies nappy bags. They're far superior for poo picking.

    On the news when they are talking about schools and show a load of kids feet walking about.

    Office workers saat at their desks whistling while working, well the guy opposite me actually.

    Italian electrics.

    Children screaming and running around in pubs while their parent(s) just sit and get drunk.

    People who stop at roundabouts and then look to see if anything is comming.

    Loads more.
    I also agree with "Literally, pacific, obviously and add basically.

    When I was teaching if I had to lend a pen or pencil to a pupil I told them that I had a habit of sucking the end of a pen. They never chewed one of mine, and a surprising number suddenly found their own writing instrument.

    Durham County Council gives away free, good quality poo bags. I've never managed to put my finger through one.

    It annoys me when people bag their dog's poo then hang the bag on a bush or railing. There's no such thing as a dogshit fairy, put the bag in the bloody bin, or take it home and bin it.

    Lovely dogs btw, I miss mine

    Hmm... Dog shit bags.
    I accidentally bought some 'scented' bags once. Why the fuck would they even make scented dog shit bags? It's not as if a scented bag would overpower the smell of a ripe dog egg. All they do is make your pocket stink like feminine hygiene product bins. You would think a company that specialised in making dog shit bags would know that if you tie a knot in the bag, it doesn't stink. Unlike my dog walking jacket that still stinks, 12 months after the scented bags ran out... Wankers.

    Fog lights!

    They do not make you look clever, rich, presentable (never mind attractive) to the opposite sex or that you have an IQ greater than a cabbage.

    They signify that the vehicle is being driven by a thoughtless, ignorant, retard.
