Eh? Missus hadn't gone to bed by then, I'd gone to our room early 'cos I was knackered, and I got into bed...WHAM, cue curling up in pain for about half an hour.

 

Haha ya just a joke. The worst cramps are the ones in your foot where the only way to get rid of them is to press your foot flat against something. So Ill be laying in bed and BAM and Im scrabbling to get out of bed or press my foot against the wall or something

Don't get me started on peoples manners in a public place. Age does not matter one bit. I have had young and (Mostly) old, who expect you to hold open doors for them, and when you do they won't even look you in the eye or even say thank you. I hate to say it, but it is mostly women in my experience (Of holding doors open for people, wether they have bags or not).

 

Example:-

 

I hold a door open for a woman carrying bags (Looked to me to be between the age of 30 and 40), she just hustles past and says nothing but makes a noise, kind of like a huff. I see a bloke coming with a pram, I decide to hold it open as other wise it would look like I shut the door on purpose. As I hold the door open, he looks me in the eye and says "Cheers mate".

 

Example 2:-

Walking around liverpool city centre is a knightmare when its packed. The poeple who are most likely to move a bit out of your way, so you can get past, are (for the most part) blokes (Say between 14 to 40). I have never had a woman gesture to move a bit out of the way, so that we can both get past each other amicably. It has never happened (In the street, I have had women hold doors open for me when I have been carrying bags).

 

Edit:- For clarity

Now I think about it, most of the really rude people I've encountered have been women...most of the mouthiest and arsey people I dealt with as a security officer and traffic marshal were women and young guys. Idiots must assume the world revolves around them, and they really don't like it when they're proved wrong...

Aye, had them before. This time, it was my left calf, and then my left hamstrings. Argh.

To the floor via their hair extensions - that is all.

funniest expirience. we were at waterloo station and my dad had to pay congestion charge. so we were looking around for somewhere in the station to pay it (you cant btw). there was a lady buying a magazine, and all my dad wanted to do was ask the guy behind the counter if he could pay the charge there. so once the lady had handed over her cash for the shiny new glossy mag, my dad just asked the bloke "can we pay the congestion charge here?". the guy tells us no, so dad asks "do you know anywhere we can pay?", and the lady who has completely finished her transaction and is simply pissing about with putting her mag her bag turns around and says " actually, he was serving me, so wait your turn!" cue me and dad laughing in her face and walking away.

I think it's some sort of side-effect of feminism and related things. Some women see a need to be agressive, confrontational and/or rude towards men as some way to assert themselves as "equals" <_<:rolleyes:

I only ever see that with teenagers, to be honest. I recall walking along a footpath a few years ago minding my own business, with three teenage girls walking towards me. I moved to one side well in advance, but they continued three abreast and blocking the pavement - staring at me as they did so. When I failed to move onto the road or climb the wall to avoid them and instead turned slightly so my shoulder hit two of theirs as they walked into me (knocking them aside) they gave me a mouthful of abuse as I continued merrily on my way. They walked into me, remember - I'd stopped dead a few feet before they hit me. Muppets.

Yep, I should obviously have leapt into the road and got hit by a bus or similar instead. I can only apologise for failing to do so :)

Cramp: aye, usually about 2-3 am, wake up with a sudden wrenching pain in my left leg usually ( upper calf/ back of the knee area ), best solution is to jump out of bed and stand up- stretching the muscle actually helps alot, rather than curling up in a ball and wanting to be sick. Only had cramp so bad I wanted to cry once, few years ago late at night as usuall; curled up on the floor with tears running down my face, couldnt walk properly for nearly a week afterwards... not nice at all.

 

Manners: yup, sometimes people seem like they expect you to hold the door open for them- best thing to do with ingorant people like that ( women especially ) is to say 'you're welcome' in a nice sarcastic tone of voice- if they say 'excuse me?', well, you know what to say back to them to make the feel guilty or about this >> << big.

Teenagers and older couples are particulary bad about walking along a pavement sensibly; the pavement is wide enough for 2 people, they walk 2 abreast, they see you coming in the opposite direction, yet they still insist on not switching to single file, forcing you to turn sideways and step half into the road to get past. Same is true when you are coming up behind people -usually older couples- and they insist on not stepping to one side to let you past, even though they can hear you behind them or glanced over their shoulders to see what was making the stomping sound ( my size 10s to let you know I want to get past you ignorant bar stewards ). Even if I say 'excuse me' some people just look at you like you're asking them for their wallets- I just want to walk past you, please stop acting like its a hassle for you to step a side for 2 seconds.

 

This time of year its at its worst though- tourist season ( or silly season astis known locally ), when the roads and pavements are full of gormless idiots with DSLRs hangin off their chests, staring up at the funny old buildings with funny chimneys etc- gtfo of the road you idiots!

I dunno, its sods law sometimes at the checkout; I go to pack someones bag, and they say 'I dont need a bag thanks', then I proceed to watch them struggle with an arm-full of shopping as they drop half on the floor when they go to leave, or, the person only has 2 or 3 small-ish items so I dont bother putting them in a bag, then they ask 'can I have a bag please?' after I've finished serving them :rolleyes:

 

Depends on the shop & checkout though I guess- some places charge for bags so you HAVE to ask for one, other places are 'pack it yourself' type checkouts ( goods get scanned then slid down the slope ). I stick as much as possible in my rucksack & the rest goes in an old carrier bag to save ending up with hundreds of the bloody things at home..

Grrrr, bloody local Co-Op.

 

Go in there for a small mid-week shop, and have done for the last 10 years.

 

"Would you like anything else?"

"Yeah, 10 carrier bags"

 

<_<

 

I only need about 5, but if you're going to make me beg for them, I'll double-bag everything.

 

Also, I get ID'd for alcohol every time I buy it, even though it's the same person serving me. He must have looked at my driving license more times than I have!

 

And also, that's "'ho", not "hoe" ;)

 

Ben.

Don't worry, eventually you'll see it as a compliment that you don't look like such an old git

As for being asked for ID we HAVE to ask if you look under 25 even if we do know you or have seen your ID before! And even if we have seen your ID a million times its always good to check, save you a fine and losing a job because another customer could report us for not asking for ID ;) The guy isn't deaf because he will reply and understand everything else you say but as soon as he thinks he can start to mess with you he will tell you to speak up huh.gif Most of the staff know now not to take *suitcase* from him.

My brother.

 

My mum told him she was clearing out the old computer today, but he buggered off early.

 

She then found his 3 gb porn folder. Which was so big it couldn't be deleted as a folder.

 

I thought it was as funny as *fruitcage* until I was told I had to go through it deleting over 1300 items <_<

The new and improved Guzzi is back!

 

My work niggle "*fruitcage* old people who smell really badly!!!!! My grandparents manage to not stink of *suitcase*! Its so bad that when serving them on the tills (i work at co-op) i have to physically stop myself from gagging. Just go die in a hole, you live in Peasedown and you suck!!!!

I just had to comment here...

 

Yep, theyre pretty awful. Its worse still when you're stuck with them in an enclosed space for a while. Had one guy on the other day for a 25 min commute from Newcastle (Under Lyme) to Madeley and he sat at the back of the bus... even from there his smell was so bad that I had to open the cab window. People were choking, etc. The guy was slightly mentally handicapped so its not his fault but it was pretty awful.

 

My other issue which I have mentioned before is when you have the Battle of Cologne on the bus. 3 or 4 women (young or old) who think they have to bathe in smellies. That gives me a headache almost as quickly as cigarette smoke.

 

Now people aren't supposed to smoke on bus stations but they do. But if they insist on finishing a fag because I have a few minutes before departure time, I close the doors to stop the smoke getting in. Usually I'll be polite and tell them this, and I will open the doors as my departure time approaches.

New little rant: Moto Guzzi. Or rather the people who make the dashboards for the new models (I think they're called Digitek).

 

All the new bikes have condensation issues with the dashboards due to improper sealing and venting. This if left unchecked can wreck a £500 dashboard, and despite it being a continuous problem, Guzzi will not switch suppliers or recall bikes. So you need to remove the bezel, then take the clocks off, and saw drain/airholes in the back of the PCB area!

Apologies for new post, too late to edit the old one.

 

Moto Guzzi. They're a big **** aren't they? :P I wish someone had told me!

 

I want to put some spanky transparent orange grips on it. But the bar end weights will NOT come undone. Some Italian must have gone out and hired a gorilla to put these things on... and superglued them into the bargain.

 

So now if I want to put new grips on I have to get new bars, twistgrip and bar end weights. Thanks, Moto Guzzi!
