    It's truly odd.

    I met a guy a few years ago in a pub who sounded like he was fresh off the boat from Emerald Isle. My family is of Irish descent so I was interested to hear where he was born. "Tile Hill" was his response.

    That's because they're closest to the ground at that point. It's almost impossible to crash at 30,000 ft.

    I once had a really hard landing coming into east Midlands. Pilot definitely misjudged it, bottomed out the suspension, plane jumped back off the runway and jerked to a weird angle and he just powered it back up and went for another attempt which wasn't much better, had a massive shooting pain in my back, women screaming, kids crying.

    I did a bit of presenting on local radio a few years back (kix 96 and radio harmony) mainly drove the desk for my dad and his friend whilst my dad’s friend learnt to do the desk but I was asked to do the Friday night Irish show . Presented it on my own but was asked to put on an Irish accent to make it more authentic politely refused and did an introduction at the beginning of the show and and outro towards the end and played virtually an hour of music which was preferred by the audience

    Although a fake accent never did Brolly any harm ;)

    Used to be based at an airport and more than once we had pilots land having forgotten to deploy the landing gear.

    people that say "I'm sorry, but.."
    e.g.
    "I'm sorry, but if you think that's acceptable, then you have another thing coming"
    or "I'm sorry, but, people like that don't deserve a second chance" etc.

    You're not sorry, are you? So why say sorry?

    Yes that is very irksome.

    People who say or write "just sayin'..." after a statement are also massive twats.

    Wouldn't the plane explode if it landed without the wheels?

    People that say “If you think that, you’ve got another thing coming”. Surely it’s think, not thing? What is the thing that is coming?

    People who say "the proof will be in the pudding".
    NO, NO, NO, NO, NOOOO!!
    The proof of the pudding will be in the eating. Fucking learn the correct idiom or don't use it at all!!

    Also somethings happens "across the piece", NOT "the piste".
    And something that is disorganised is "all over the shop" NOT "the shot".
    (Work colleagues note!!!)

    And I'm sorry that multiple exclamation marks will annoy some of you.

    Rondog who occasionally posts on here had a gaffer or maybe a football manager once that said "The proof of the pudding is in the cake"

    People referring to different things that are happening in work as a 'piece'.

    "He's getting on with the contract management piece"

    I'm not even at work at the moment (away on holiday) but it still annoys me

    People who use the one-word term "Scenes". Just seen Lego-head refer to the debate in Parliament with the one word retweet!
    Hate it!

    Busy Twats.

    The sort that would go out of their way to grass someone in.

    Checking their neighbour's cars are taxed, calling a traffic warden/company to clamp a car/give it a ticket etc...

    Sad Freaks.

    There are people who do that? If there was a car that was obviously abandoned you could be forgiven, but dobbing in your neighbour??

    what are you fucking twelve? Why should I pay more tax so you don’t have to?

    I wouldn’t go out my way, but fuck people who whine when theyre caught breaking the law. You knew the risks. If everyone did it there’d be chaos so you can only get away with it by relying on everyone else to follow the rules.

    I think I know the type he’s on about. There’s an estate close to where I live that had some trouble with all of the college kids parking along the street so the Neighbourhood Watch committee approached the local authorities to have double yellows put down. Fair enough.

    It’s now at a point where certain residents are phoning the police if driveways are blocked, not taking into consideration that the owners of said car are visiting the house of the owner they’re blocking in. One even phoned the police on a Tesco delivery driver who had stopped outside someone’s house to deliver their shopping. Tesco now have to park round the corner outside the estate to avoid the hassle. That’s just nonsensical.

    Surely, if you phoned the police about how somebody has parked, they would laugh at you, and tell you to fuck off.

    Trying to buy a house at the moment. I've got a 30% deposit and moving from renting to a mortgage will cut my outgoings considerably.

    However can't get a mortgage for payments of less than £500 a month, compared to my £800 a month rent which has always been paid on time, as they say its unaffordable.

    Been there, done that! Fun, innit.

    Out of interest, am looking to move myself in the medium-ish future. How much does £500 a month equate to the mortgage value?

    Absolutely crazy. Who the hell would come to the conclusion that that is unaffordable?
    We're looking to remortgage in 6 months because our 5 year fixed is up. Hoping that all this Brexit nonsense doesn't push rates up, because they're really low atm. Some 5 year fixes are around 1.5%. Our current deal is 3.15%.
    Issue we have is that our help to buy will be due interest payments at the same time. So any money we save on mortgage payments will probably be swallowed up by help to buy payments.

    £500 a month is good for £130K over 25 years although be warned if 25 years takes you past retirement age you might have a problem unless your pension is going to pay as much as your salary.

    What I'm finding is there's way more stages than the last time I bought a house (sold that to pay for the divorce so technically classed as a first time buyer again). They'll do the first couple of stages and tell you everything is fine and affordable then once they do the credit check, which is a hard check that shows up on your file, they start moving the goalposts.

    I've checked my credit record with all the agencies so I know its in top shape but once you're that far in you're screwed. If you bin them off and apply elsewhere before you know it your credit score is going down due to multiple checks by mortgage providers.

    People with cringey, cliche nicknames.

    There's a radio presenter down here called Martin "The Hat".

    Oh, you where a hat all the time, well done. Tit.

    my latest dislike is fairly specific - I saw someone doing it on the tele last night and it drove me insane: it's..

    ..people that use one of their hands (fingers curled inwards) to bend back the fingers of the other hand (one by one) when making a series of connected points, and hold the pose (but also slightly shake both connected hands up and down for emphasis) whilst making each point.
    e.g.
    - (bends back thumb of right hand using curled up left hand) - "he can't run" (shake both connected hands slightly up and down)
    - (bends back index finger of right hand using curled up left hand) - "he can't shoot" (shake both connected hands slightly up and down)
    - (bends back middle finger of right hand using curled up left hand) - "he can't tackle" (shake both connected hands slightly up and down)
    etc..

    You might need to try it at home using your own hands (perhaps in front of a mirror) to experience the full effect and to realize what cúnts these people are.

    My sciatic nerve in bottom left of my back. Can go weeks without any bother , play football and dive about in goal , lift anything heavy and walk about 7 miles a day at work, but if I plant my foot and twist a certain way the pain shoots straight up the left hand side of my back and I can’t walk for minutes.

    Now sat in my car with a throbbing back and really don’t wanna go back to work!

    There are a few adverts which seem to be popping up everywhere.

    'Get ready for Brexit'. it's not political to suggest you don't need an advert which doesn't actually tell you *how* to get ready - as if you've missed Brexit chat across the UK, you've been living under a roick.

    Then there's that beardy bloke who wakes up and dances around the house because he's got some viagra.
