    What I love the most, is the blurb at the end 'search #goleft for the facts'.

    Who on earth is hearing that, waiting until they get home, then going online to find out more about 'going left?'

    I bet there was a 50k + budget to build a website that nobody but the seriously deranged would ever visit.

    More electronic failings.
    At the beginning of the month a kindly sap sent out a spreadsheet to update with regard to which schools each club in Hertfordshire had links to.
    I duly completed ours and sent it back the next day.
    One month later the nice but dim liaison coach emailed me at 1pm and said he can't open it and could I do it again?
    Why wait?
    I've said I'll email him the relevant information.
    I have subsequently learned that a friend was asked to do the same yesterday at W Herts. I'm one up on him I suppose.
    He didn't even get sent the spreadsheet!

    My speed awareness course actually worked! Must have been 2 years ago now but I've gone from driving like a total arse to actually observing the limit and being very safe and observant.

    I had one on mine, piped up every two minutes with 'when you've got an autistic son screaming in the back that seems more important,' or similar. We also had someone who came in for the first half and then left after the coffee break. He wasted his morning and would have received points and a fine for the sake of those extra 2 hours.

    Just sit through it, do your time and then go. Either learn from it, as I did, or don't, but you're not gonna convince the traffic cop that your super skills entitle you to be the one person in the country who should be allowed to speed.

    When I posted the above I’d only heard the radio adverts and have since realised there are also TV adds, I read this the other day:

    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-south-yorkshire-56371018

    She certainly has a point regarding what happened to her husband and the similarities with a fly being squashed on your windscreen.

    That said, and as terrible as the incident was, you have to question the intelligence of standing on the inside lane of a motorway to exchange details.

    There's a certain type. The cargo shorts and Birkenstocks whatever the weather geezers.

    I'm close, because I wear knee length shorts on alternate days to go to the gym, but not in Nov-feb.

    I had a little lad come to a group on a Friday night years ago.
    Sweet little chap, we used to call him "Simon No Clothes".
    His mum was a scout leader,hearty lady,very personable.
    Whatever the weather poor Simon would arrive in a white top and white shorts. Others would be in hats,gloves,coats in January but SNC was there in his undergarments seemingly.
    Almost seemed like child cruelty but he did run around a lot and they say children don't feel the cold until they're 12 or thereabouts.

    It's widely supposed the Germans were taking amphetamines at the time along with their oranges. Hungary are still miffed about it more so that Puskas had a perfectly good goal disallowed which would have won it right at the death.

    I didn't think I was bullying or 'body shaming' fatties. I was just pointing out that, in my view, it is totally unacceptable and unfair on the general population for morbidly obese women to exercise in public while wearing clothes that are clearly designed to accentuate their labia during the hours of daylight. I think that is perfectly reasonable.

    People who give telephone numbers out like

    Oh seven eight, seven two three, one one eight, four four.

    Or any deviation from the standard;

    Oh seven eight seven two, three one one, eight four four.

    (This number is made up and don't phone the poor soul who owns it).

    ******* hell, you like singing and are a bit **** at it so need to hide in a crowd. Fine. Keep it to yourself. And piss off Gareth with your insinuating choirs into everything as some sort of panacea.

    Oooh yes, you’re right. I thought I agreed with @wfcmoog but then said my number to myself and realised you are indeed correct - oh not zero.

    'Oh' is not a number.

    Oooh look at me with my porch and alligators and gun crime.

    I’ve just had to tip toe out to the garage so I could have a fag without getting frostbite or being mauled by a badger.

    Why on earth do you find this objectionable?

    Because listing the first 5 digits followed by the last 6 has always been the standard way to read out British mobile phone numbers. Why deviate from that?

    In my experience, when you deviate from that, you just end up confusing the other person, leading to the wrong digits being written down.
     
  33. Keighley

    What about a break between the first and second set of three digits in the last part of the number? I can’t see much wrong with that and it allows for slow listeners to catch up.

    Anyway, it seems a bit OTT to “hate” this rather than finding it mildly annoying!
     
  34. El distraído

    El distraído Johnny Foreigner

    IMO that's perfectly acceptable, because you aren't reordering the numbering, you're just breaking it up a little more. I've no problem with that.

    I think the original poster's point though was wondering in annoyance why people deviate from the standard xxxxx xxxxxx to something like xxxx xxx xxxx. The latter just makes things unnecessarily confusing.

    People should just read mobile numbers out as 5 digits - 6 digits or 5 digits - 3 digits - 3 digits IMO.

    Isn't everything in this thread over the top? :cool:

    It's always the same when the cricket season is about to start.
