People who press both the up and the down button on a lift, without realising that if you press "up" the lift is going that way, and if you press "down" then so it will too.

The Daily Express et al, who seem incapable or deliberately unwilling to make the difference between various European institutions, and consider them all to be the spawn of the devil.

Let's just remind ourselves: The European Court of Human Rights, is an adjunct of the Council of Europe, which was proposed by Winston Churchill, amongst others, and set up in 1949, long before the EU or its predecessors. Even the most UKIP of people would have to feel that Winston was onside.

Nothing to do with the European Union, of which Britain are also members. Leaving the Council of Europe would mean joining Belarus, Kazakhstan (both barred because of human rights violations), and the Vatican City (because it's a theocracy). Way to go!!!!

And when we talk about all these European Judges, (by definition foreigners) deciding our fate: well, there are British judges there too.


Don't knock the Crusader...or any company that was willing to give me three redundancy packages in 20 years...way to go!! Cool

and when they grow up and become women they're even more trouble!

Must have been reading a couple of Central Midland League reports on this forum.

What have I missed? I don't s'pose you've got a link have you Andy? Cool



If reports on this board are true a "Lady" was removed from Easington's game on Saturday, the same "Lady" did not pay to go into a Hop game and watched it from the pavement. This "Lady" has never been seen wearing a skirt.

A few more (many of which are linked) as I'm feeling tetchy at the moment:

People at work who don't read e-mails - usually identifiable by having hundreds of unread ones in their inbox. Much of what I do relies on input or responses from colleagues, and when those select few just don't reply it holds everything up, sometimes for months.

The campaign to bring back weekly bin collections

People who believe conspiracy theories (this includes my dad, who based on some newspaper reports is convinced that it isn't worth putting anything in his blue bin "because it's all put in landfill anyway")

Pretty much all newspapers. The Times used to be one of the few I could stand reading, but there are increasing signs that the political views of its owners are more now important than facts. News International are a very disturbing entity - I recently found out that apparently they forced Cameron to sack Dominic Grieve for having the nerve to tell the truth and have a go at them for stoking the fear of crime.

Sky - who will let you upgrade and buy more services online, but force you to call one of their non-free phone numbers if you want to remove anything from your package.

Ryanair - recently forced me to pay for oversized luggage despite it being within their limits, then telling me that I could only complain via letter or fax, only for them to respond by e-mail (although totally failing to address anything I said in the letter), but saying I couldn't reply to their e-mail!

People who don't know how to queue (Germans and Israelis for a start)

Sky full stop is an annoyance. They keep overcharging, and the sports channels are just Man Utd games being shown. On top of that...endless repeats, especially on SKY1 where an episode of "The Simpsons" you saw last week, could be shown about three days later! I'm all for a digital revolution, but surely there is no need to a) charge for it and b) offer a bit more choice.

I ditched it in February....got a Freesat box in the front room for 30.00 with our built-in Freeview TV which was a gift from my brother in law, the SKY box with the free channels only in the backroom, and a Freeview box in the spare room. I sold the SKY HD box on EBay for a tidy sum ;)

It's saved me 70.00 a month easily Laugh

Pointless things BEARDS what are the point, also why does everybody say The Arsenal no one else says the Chelsea The Wigan etc


Possibly because Arsenal is also a noun,meaning a place where weapons are produced or stored. Chelsea and Wigan are proper nouns only.


Also because The Arsenal was actually the name at one point.

Although our monthly charge is only around 45, I will cancel it the moment my housemate moves out as he is the only one who watches any of it.

Isn't West Bromwich part of Sandwell? And surely Coventry and Wolverhampton are cities.

The campaign to bring back weekly bin collections.

We had a campaign round here to keep our weekly collections when the Tories wanted us to change to fortnightly. We won, although we know it won't last.

News International are a very disturbing entity

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Sky - who will let you upgrade and buy more services online, but force you to call one of their non-free phone numbers if you want to remove anything from your package.

I wouldn't touch Sky with someome else's. And the sooner the EU break their monopoly on what we're allowed to watch the better.

Also Ryanair for trying to get some cheap publicity from the volcanic ash problem!

Queueing for buses (certainly in London) seems to have become a thing of the past.

Sky are a bunch of bastards. I realised a few years back I was paying for football and films that I was never watching. I more-or-less had to tell them I had a terminal disease in order to get them to cancel my subscription and get them off my back. Even then I was pretty much told I was an idiot for wanting to give up their wonderful service. I seem to be getting by ok now though with my Freesat service. God bless free high definition. One more thing that really winds me up is people who have to finish EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE with an upwards inflection, or whatever it's called, like everything they say is a question. Never noticed it a few years back but it sems to be pretty common nowadays.

I hate people who finish my sentences for me, especially when they get it wrong. I can be there for 10 minutes restarting the sentence hoping I can get it all out before they jump in. But then the same people generally don't finish their own sentences - they just leave it hanging, wait for you to do it for them.
I had a manager like that once who never knew what I was saying because she never actually listened to the end of the sentence and then said everything in half sentences and, when I didn't finish them for her, did this irritating kind of 'is anyone there???' at me.
