    In general.

    Like an aeroplane trying to take off every time they take a swig, imagine you start just randomly sucking in air as soon as you pick the cup up and carry on until the cup gets to your mouth. Then without tipping the cup, just try and suck the drink out of the cup rather than tipping the cup.

    I could be in a nightclub and still hear somebody do it across the other side.

    I take your point, but i prefer to use the British-English pronunciation of the noun, thanks. Enough Americanisms already!

    D'oh!

    Always plenty of 'could ofs, should ofs and would ofs' on here. As in 'he should of scored or 'he could of taken a quick one and he would of been in on goal' etc.

    Apologies - laziness born of typing in software programmes which auto-correct to a capital I! Must do better!

    All club football is now subservient to the champions league aka the European Super League. Where there were previously 3 European competitions which had a degree of esteem there are now 2, one of which is basically a feeder to the Champions League. This flows down into domestic football with the Premier League being a feeder to the Champions League, other tournaments being subservient to it.
    The Champions League isn't about competition either, it's just about having a product to sell to the world.

    Kit Harington from Game of Thrones has gone into rehab, media waiting about to get pictures of the poor bloke.

    That's when it should be fair game to kick the shit out of any press lurking about.

    People on LinkedIn. Just seems to be a lot of people justifying their jobs, saying how great they are and lots of management slogans. Bet their Facebook accounts aren’t like that! Just so false

    Aren’t they talking about some kind of relegation system rather than the league positions ?

    I'm on LinkedIn and have had a few job leads through it. It's cringeworthy though and I don't post any shite on there. Look for the account 'State of Linked In' on Twitter....

    The only thing i use LinkedIn for is to find out what people appointed to new posts here and there have been doing previously.

    People who put mission statements (aka personal summary statements) at the top of their CV saying how wonderful they are! Where's the shredder?!

    This new advertising trend absolutely fucking does my tits in.

    "Find your happy"

    "Be your good"

    "Do your dreams"

    I saw a bank advertising their mortgages with this slogan "Millions of Begins"

    Cuuunts.

    Did you ever see the film "Mrs. Doubtfire" when Robin Williams pretends to be various people answering an ad for a nanny and one of them just says "I am job".
    That might be a good slogan for a recruitment agency.

    Insurance companies. We have never claimed on our house insurance in over 20 years but earlier this year my wife lost a diamond out of one of her rings so I called them to ask if it was covered. The guy knew straightaway that it wasn't covered and checked the policy to make sure and confirmed it to me. Fast forward 6 months and on our renewal we now have 0 years NCB!!
