    That’s not funny and it didn’t even raise a smirk at this end. ;)

    Was on the a40 today and someone overtook in a small break to the heavy traffic both ways. We were doing the speed limit and his mildly risky manoeuvre simply led to him tailgating the car ahead for 5 miles. If there was another small gap in oncoming traffic his victory in overtaking would have been tailgating someone else just 50 metres further aheadfor another 5 miles. ****.

    Does your head in, what really do they think they are likely to achieve?

    We were dogsitting last weekend.

    These 2 dogs pee against every single bush, lamppost and fence they come across. Sometimes one per bush, often both of them, sometimes they get their angles wrong and pee in each other's faces. Bless em.

    Anyhow, one of them has gone half onto someone's drive and is peeing on the hedge to their front garden/driveway, same as every other front garden in the road, they have a front garden that's mostly driveway with a fence or bush and fence or bush dividing their property with the neighbour. Most drives you can get 3 cars onto. This particular drive was all driveway and not very well kept. The bush is a bush I'd say a dozen dogs widdle on each day.

    I don't understand the anger and vitriol in the home owners reaction to a small dog peeing on the corner of her bush. She opened 1st floor window and shouted "Oi, what the hell are you doing?" Of course my reply that my [borrowed] dog was having a pee and he had to go, only made it worse and i was am irresponsible dog owner and disgusting to let it happen, get it out of her property blah blah. A prompt F-Off in her direction and I'm away. I got in trouble because my 6 year old was there and told mummy that daddy used a bad word.

    Am I the ********? Or is a dog peeing against your front hedge something you should accept.

    If the dog was on their property I’d say it was out of order. You wouldn’t let your kid walk onto their property to pee, so why the dog? Would you like your front garden (even if not a garden) to be used as a general canine toilet?

    If the bush is on the boundary, not so much of a problem provided it is not a prize horticultural specimen (which it sounds as if it wasn’t).

    I’m imagining that the corner of her bush was well within her boundary however unkempt it was.

    I am soooo happy to have passed that stage with my lot now. There are so many things I see parents doing with their young kids that I used to hate doing that it makes me appreciate their ages now. Examples: flying, going to restaurants, school runs, forced shows like Pepper Pig, in fact just thinking about the last one makes my skin crawl.

    The party was at a climbing place in Milton Keynes, which was fine until they finished climbing and went to eat. 2 little sods out of 10 kids aged around 10 setting the others off. Longest 45 minutes of the year as they messed about. The worst was a kid who is a big Luton fan, his dad can't bring himself to actually talk to me knowing I have a Watford season ticket.

    Generally mine are at a decent age (10 and 11) and have left a lot of the child stuff behind. They never tell you how difficult and wearing most of the stuff and time you spend with kids under about 8 is.

    Would peeing from the public right of way onto the bush on private property be acceptable?

    Difficult for a dog.

    A piece of piss, literally, for an adult forumite.

    If he's any good at 4 he will already be in the Chelsea academy and loaned out to Standard Liege.

    Ideally with a view to loaning him to us aged 17 before 5 further loans to other clubs before becoming a Hornet perm aged 23.

    Wimbo, time to start planning this.

    Sorry to say, he's already missed the boat. Maybe a bit of upfront planning for the next one ?

    ...he’s showed no interest in football at all until recently, much like (insert random name of disinterested footballer here)!
    I got him a football for Christmas and he’s belting it everywhere, much like (insert random name of rubbish footballer here)!
    He’s told me he’s a Watford fan like me but I won’t hold my breath on that living where we do.

    Promising start!

    Btw, my sister, slightly frugally, gave me a box of Lancashire Tea for Christmas.

    Jolly cartoon map of the county adorns the box.

    In tiny writing on the bottom it confesses that it was made in Wimborne!

    He ran in and told her before I'd got both feet though the door. Fortunatley i realised he'd grass me up so messaged ahead.

    The overuse of 'myself' or 'yourself' by people who think it sounds more formal than saying 'I' or 'you'. Seems to be everywhere recently. Sorry, you just sound like a berk.

    Isn't this one just a matter of grammar? Are there situations where it is interchangeable?

    A new entry from me - the way Harry Kane feels the need to cover his mouth every time he speaks to a referee or team mate.

    He got booked for diving the other day and covered his mouth while ranting at the referee. Strangely infuriating. Really can't stand the bloke.
