    I've nearly had fights from beeping such people. Force me to slam on the brakes, then amble across with total arrogance and then get narky when I beep. ****s

    If they have just been daydreaming and then, realise that I'm there, acknowledge it with a nod or a wave and a sort of attempted hop/shuffle to indicate urgency, I'll respond with a smile and a wave and a 'don't worry about it,' gesture. It's the attitude which makes it offensive to me.

    I'm refering to those that know you are there, know that you know they know you are there, but also know that you won't plough into them while they are in the way, so can just carry on at whatever pace they choose to. You can go only when they decide they will let you....

    What about those utter *******s that go for a Friday wedding so not only do you need to pay for travel, bar drinks, and possibly accommodation, but also need to take a day's holiday from work just to attend.
    We did that. :oops:
    All the saturdays had already been taken at our chosen hotel in the cotswolds...
    I still feel guilty about that 15 years later.....

    Had a Thursday wedding last year before the August bank holiday, it was sold to everyone on the basis that if you booked the Thursday and Friday off work with the BH you’d have 5 days off.

    Had a boss who had a Monday wedding at venue I’d been to a couple of weekend weddings at, but he was definitely a tight **** so no surprise.

    Then they are simply unreasonable.

    When my wife and I were planning our wedding, we were acutely aware that my family would be sparsely present, if at all, because most wouldn't be in a position to fly from the UK to the US.

    Neither of us was remotely upset when this proved to be the case (it was quite literally my dad, my stepmother and my sister as far as my family goes). If your wedding isn't easily accessible, you have to expect people to not be able to make it. Anything else is wholly unreasonable.

    I went to a wedding a couple of years ago where the ‘MC’ at the reception had to ask people without tickets to leave the venue. Was chaos as bouncers went round actually checking tickets only to attempt to throw people out who had discarded their tickets after arriving. Went on for hours until everyone gave up.

    Still makes me laugh to this very moment.

    We did that too, but then William and Kate picked the date for their wedding as well, so it turned into a Bank Holiday Friday and we were quids in.

    I think Friday is just about acceptable.

    We got asked to go on million pound drop that evening, still in wedding attire as part of the day's events on Channel 4. But **** that, we had to be there at about 5.30pm and our wedding was 3pm. So would have missed most of our own wedding reception.

    I'm invited to a family wedding next week on a blooming Thursday. Not only do I have to take a day off but I've got work on the Friday as well

    That’s another hate as well, people who walk around car parks as if they’re pedestrianised and then act surprised when a car wants to get past them, why walk across and along the side when you can just amble down the middle.

    Just remembered a friend who had a wedding on the Saturday after Diana died. The whole country was deep in mourning and it almost seemed poor taste to have any type of celebration. Once the bride turned up they had a minutes silence before their ceremony began which worked really well and the rest of the day went as normal.

    Very niche one this but these types of posts from football clubs on Twitter:


    I’m an adult, I can cope with my team conceding and I’d quite like to know more about the goal please. Every football club seems to follow this template now.

    T-shirts and tops which say 'Old Guys Rule'. Seen loads of these lately, usually stretched over a bulging belly.

    It must be so galling for young people and women.

    Yes, we know old guys rule. And look at the mess they've got the world in.

    Similarly, there are a number of men wearing "world's best dad" t shirts. Not only is this unverified and there are billions of fathers in the world, but I've always found that men who are very confident in their abilities as a father are usually poor at the role.

    Not questioning my brother in law's ability as a parent but when we saw them and he was wearing this, I lost almost all remaining respect for him. He even wore it to the pub...

    Yeah, they are crap. What I do wonder is whether men buy them for themselves or if they are an ironic gift from family who can’t be arsed to think of a better present?

    It was a corner. Blackburn had a girl who looked to be Wilt Chamberlain type tall, but she was being marked by one of our full backs or midfielders. Corner came in, she connected towards the far side of the 8 yard box, headed a looping ball across goal into the far corner from her and our keeper had no chance.

    This. Over detailed accounts of every goal we concede. “Player headed ball into net from a corner”. That’s it. Nuff said. Move on. We go again.

    Radio 5 Live. Dreary-voiced presenters and phone-ins with unimaginably dull callers droning on and on about the NHS or their mental health issues. Dreadful

    So, in other words, people, especially those who live in the UK?

    I’d extend that to all t-shirts emblazoned with any motto, ever. I really don’t care about the whole ‘Megadeath 2010 World Tour’ gig listing, thanks. And despite what’s on the front of another of your t-shirts, you are decidedly NOT a ‘cool dude’.

    It’s the fact that the wife buys it knowing he’ll absolutely LOVE it and never seems to question the reasons for her devotion to him.

    Electric cars. My daughter has one for work and it seems most of her spare time is spent worrying about how and where to charge the bl**dy thing up.

    I can’t say ‘electric cars.’ So I agree with this.

    So, really you hate the chronic failure to improve the electric car charging infrastructure, which lags miles (kilometres) behind many of our friends over the channel.

    To continue Clive's sartorial theme, men that wear three-quarter length trousers (they might be long shorts, I'm not sure). They come to just below the knee allowing the wearer to reveal a milky white, hairless shin and calf. In fact, I'll throw in all grown men who dress like children.
