No laughing matter, I now cross the border into Engaland and take armfuls of bags to smuggle back into Wales so I don't have to pay for any.

Well I live on the border and work in Chester anyway, so it's not as much of a disaster as I make out :P I just shop on the way home from work haha.

I have a habit of buying bags for life, and then forgetting them when I get to the shop, and have to refrain from having a hissy fit in the shop and throwing things off the shelves in pure rage. Its easier shopping where there are free bags, prevents my pay-for-a-bag-and-forget-it-disaster-Hulk-alter-ego appearing.

You won't like me when I forget my bags (and have to pay for more).

To be fair, if i knew more about Red Dwarf than Madame Curie (which i probably do) I'd choose it as a subject too.
Wasn't there a comedian who tried to apply with the specialist subject "Holidays I've Been on"?

Yes! John Bishop.

Obviously they wouldn't let him so he ended up choosing the Irish Potato Famine, despite not knowing anything about it.

Virgin Media Broadband engineers. So all hail the mods slow at fixing a problem. Says on their service status that an engineer is on his way and that was at 4:10pm yesterday and the fix time will be Monday afternoon.

Can't be dealing with my internet being fairy cakes all day. Constantly losing internet access and getting it back for like 20 minutes.

Even worse is that they are allowed to call themselves engineers. One day I'll sum up the courage to ask one of them where they got their degree from.

People who read a poorly written article, with no facts in it (let alone referenced facts), sees that the original source is some bloke on twitter and disregard like they should. Then it generates a bit of traction and is referenced in a slightly more reputable news source, which still is devoid of referenced information, and quotes the original twitter bloke as the source, and apparently it's a proper news story.

Also people who will take a badly written article completely without any sources to push their own biased agenda, and try to ridicule you when even the most rudimentary of investigation can disprove the article in every way.

People with internet access that are against searching for extra knowledge in favour of taking pictures of their food and getting Justin Bieber to trend on twitter. I get a lot of grief from people I know because I 'know everything about the world, ever' (according to them), purely because I like to read up on things (like for instance, I learnt a few weeks ago why planets are all in the same plane relative to the sun). People that are willingly ignorant when learning in 'Western' civilisation is pretty much one of easiest things you can do with the information available to us annoy the hell out of me.

At least you had 20 minutes. Our electricity went out at 4 yesterday and didn't come back till 2am. I have to admit I feel more for the people I went to the pub with as I hadn't been able to have a shower as a result of this!

I can beat you for powercuts, someone flooded our electrics with a slow-draining shower. The "emergency electrician" took 5 days to get to us, by which time I was bored of only having my keyboard to amuse me [ah, the beauty of batteries!].

Mate of mine liked a facebook group. This is their about bit.

Quote:
Mission
The desire of the xxxxxx committee is to reach out to the young adults of our land, to win their souls for Christ and to show the love and compassion of the Lord Jesus Christ each Saturday evening through the Word of God, praise and Christian fellowship.

Description
We aim to share the gospel and encourage young Christians in their walk with God. Dunamis is a Greek word, from which we derive the English word dynamite, found in Acts 1 v 8 and it means ‘Gods Power’. We believe that everyone needs to experience the life changing power of God's salvation which gives us purpose in our everyday lives.



This is their current status

Quote:
Special time of prayer to pray against the motion of gay marriage in parliament on Tuesday.
You are welcome to come and jon us at 8pm tonight in xxxx hall and pray that the sacred institution of marriage between one man and one woman will be upheld.

Acts 4:31
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.


Yeah reach out to young adults and make them all homophobic cnuts like yourselves :x :x :x

sorry but that has just really tiddled me off tonight.

Packaging. Of any kind, but especially children's toys and CDs. I want everything to come loose in a Brown paper bag. Except milk, that can have it's bottle.

I'll see your powercuts and raise you frozen drains.

Got frantic call from dog/housesitter this morning to say shower not draining. Flew in this afternoon and now have plumber with head under sink and impressive display of plumber cleavage - and you know that ain't good.

That really annoys me as well. Selectively quoting religious books to serve an agenda, either positive or negative. Normally to do with quoting Leviticus and homosexuality, while nicely missing out the quotes on tattoos, synthetic fibres, and cotton blends. Happens all the time when people want to paint Islam as a terrorist handbook, and make out that people are proclaiming a jihad against people for giving them the wrong change in Starbucks or something.

The general idea that marriage is somehow sacred, and all these homosexuals who love each other are somehow tainting it by expressing their love, but it's cool for Britney Spears to get drunk and marry some guy, only to have it annulled when she sobered up, and it's perfectly fine for Kim Kardashian to marry Kris Humphries for 72 days.

Now I'm on something of a roll, the phrase '<insert terrorist group> has links with Al Qaeda. It's used in the media so frequently, but never explained past that phrase. Links with Al Qaeda could mean you were on the same softball team when you were 11.

Indeed... The claim it's "to protect the sacred institution of marriage between a man and a woman"...

...but what about protecting the sacred institution of marriage between two people who love each other.

Your man and woman thing doesn't work too well considering the amount of couples you allow to divorce each year, so how about you let in people who probably love each other more than a man an a woman who are going to split up in a few years...

:D :D :D

My boss is my annoyance today.

Worked the whole weekend for them for a special project, did 19 hours just on Sat/Sunday.


No payment.

Not even a thank you......

The other bit that pisses me off is in this day and age how many of us don't know someone who is gay, whether it be social or through work?

I bet the very same people blabbin' on about it being wrong in FB groups and in church are nice as pie to the faces of gay folk they actually know.

Makes for another annoyance that!! Two faced folk.

In fact I think the two people who have liked the group in Question I'm pretty sure both have 1at least one gay person on their friends list. One an old friend from school the other an ex-boyfriend from before he swapped sides as it were.

I had a flyer on this subject put through my letterbox a few days ago from the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. Can't remember exactly what it said now as I binned it pretty quickly but you can get an idea of its content with a quick read through the hate-filled bile that forms their website

http://www.spuc.org.uk/

I just wish whoever delivered it had rung the doorbell and handed it to me in person because:
a) I would have had great fun tearing their shoddy argument to shreds
b) I am gay myself and would have loved to see their reaction to finding out they are trying to convince a gay person to oppose gay marriage


If the people opposed to gay marriage can come up with even some vaguely credible reasoning as for why it should not be allowed then I will listen and consider their point, despite my obvious bias on the issue. But so far that has not happened. All I've heard is baseless statements with no credible statistics to back them up and just straight out homophobia that people think is justified because their religion apparently says so. And that is what annoys me so much about this whole debate.

:lol:

I agree completely with your points, but for me that quote just summed up the lunacy of the 'anti' debate. If they can't tell you're gay [how dare you not have such a fact engraved in your forehead? :P ] how do they expect to know who to discriminate against? Besides, if there's no visible difference between a straight or gay person, and so many gay couples live together anyway, how do they intend on punishing you for daring to share in the institution of marriage??

Why is there no simple equation for estimating populations of small mammals that don't involve ones that (for some weird nonsensical reason) you release yourself?! AAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!

Also a more general annoyance: people.

Slightly more acceptable than people who apparently think his and he's are the same word(s). And your/you're, there/their/they're. I die a little inside when I see sentences like 'His right, your not nice for taking they're things'.

This annoys me too. And hen people say 'more better' or anything like that. I get annoyed by affect/effect too but I keep struggling with them recently (even though it's never been a problem before). The more I think about them the more confused I get!

Its funny you mentioned that, but i am having real trouble with effect/affect, the more i think about it, the more likely it is to be wrong

i.e. if i just write it down without thinking about it (using the force!) i tend to get it right, but when i think about which one to use, i tend to get it wrong

Ahhh bugger! And now I'm annoyed because typos make me angry. Although I imagine hen people would be annoying too so I'm sticking with that. Squirrel fish however sound amazing!

Annoyed that they are replacing the Iron Monopoly piece with a cat...

Completely unnecessary and a waste of money imo. I know it was an old fashioned iron, but update to a modern iron, not change it to a bloody cat!

You say that like it's the first time they've done it... I think you'll find they've done it throughout the years. And why not have a cat? Something for cat lovers to use when dog lovers have had the Scottie dog for years...

Besides, they are replacing the Iron because that was the piece chosen by fans to be replaced. And the cat was chosen via the same method. You might not like cats, but millions out there do. And they voted...

Gotta change with the times...

:D :D :D
