    I'm pretty sure they stopped doing it because it then denies that person their 30 seconds of fame, thus discouraging some from doing it.

    Monkhouse joke:
    ‘When I told people at school I wanted to be a comedian they all ridiculed me. Well, they’re not laughing now!’

    Funny "ha, ha" and funny peculiar.

    He wrote for and with any- and everyone. He was one of the quickest gag tellers ever.

    He was also obsessive about TV. He was 'done' for recording virtually any- and everything that was broadcast. He used to annotate copies of the Radio Times and TV Times with their correct broadcast Times and ad breaks - then file them.

    He also wrote one the greatest books ever: his autobiography "Crying With Laughter". It's also about how to be funny and a treatise on what is comedy.

    I love Monkhouse. From Carry on Sergeant, to his 'blue comedy' and his light entertainment stuff. Truly a gem of British entertainment.

    Good to see that you're continuing on your unerring journey of being 100% wrong about everything.

    The best way to stop this is to give them a big smile as they approach and pat the seat invitingly.

    Families going to pubs for the Euro 24 final then complaining when it gets a bit rowdy.

    Add any casual fan to that really, we watched it in our local on Wednesday, they had a projector with rows of chairs in front of it, and we were sat off to the side on some more comfortable chairs, with a walkway in between.

    We completely missed the Dutch goal because a group of about 6 early twenty-ish people decided to stop on the walkway to say hello to each other and have a casual catch up “how have you been, I haven’t seen you in ages” etc. they were totally oblivious to the actual football going on behind them, and the fact they were completely blocking the view of about 30 people.

    Past experience.

    Used to go to my local to watch the football until the World Cup semi final where we got knocked out. On the day of the semi final our usual table that we'd sat at for every match to that point was occupied by a couple of families, (teenage kids not toddlers and Mums who really couldn't give 2 sh*ts about the football but wanted it on their facebook pages I presume). When a small fight kicked off after the match, (well actually it was quite a big fight), that was the other end of the pub they literally ran screaming out of there never to be seen again.

    BTW we lost 2-0 to Spain.

    The seemingly never-ending epidemic of roadworks and temporary traffic lights. I understand the majority of roads are abysmal and need fixing (for which I’m glad they’re actually doing something)

    What annoys me the most is the obsession of ‘fixing’ places they’ve previously ‘fixed’- I use the term fixed extremely loosely. The Toby Carvery roundabout is the biggest example of this in Watford. It seems to be every month or so they are digging up and working on THE SAME STRETCH OF ROAD they did before. It causes absolute carnage on both school runs of the day and at 5 o’clock when everyone is travelling home.

    Do it properly and then they won’t have to revisit it all the time.

    Ah man don’t, I’m basically trapped where I live at the moment, there are about 5 sets of temporary lights surrounding me, the worst thing is that two of them are right on existing traffic lights, which are already busy at the best of times, the addition of the temporary lights has made it absolute carnage. There is basically one way I can leave my house to go elsewhere without issue, but there is no route back again that doesn’t involve about 20/30 minutes sat in gridlock trying to get home.

    Edit: and just up the road from me is the A40, which they’ve made into one lane on both sides for a section due to roadworks, which causes horrendous tail backs on both sides. It makes going back to see my family towards Surrey way an absolute nightmare.

    Did you start the fight to make sure they don't come back?! Most pubs near me don't allow kids in the bar after 8pm and have not made an exception for this. Local football club for me

    Turn the TV off when we go a goal down after 5 mins, go & do something else and forget it's even happening ..... "it's just a game"....
