The mrs. She’s watching Love Island and constantly bitching about it as it goes on. Why do people do it to themselves?! The pits of all tv.

I need a brick wall to smash my head against!

The evolution of the human voice in Britain (generally among the under-40s and women, in the majority) to be more of a croak than a voice. It is particularly prevalent in the whingey "singers" around today, but is now in general circulation. As with all steps in evolution, hopefully natural selection will take over and eradicate it from the gene pool because no-one else wants to have children with them!

Websites with hidden customer agreements.

All you want to do is read the state of your account but to get there you first have to click on a 'continue' button and hidden somewhere on the page it says "by clicking 'continue' you agree to the following changes being made to your account".

Unless you read every word on every page you have no idea what you're agreeing to until it's too late.

Amazon is one of the worst offenders but even Lloyds Bank is doing it now.

The humour of the youth of today.

Saw a video of "Chunkz" and "Yung Filly". Oh my fucking god, what a load of shit.

To make it worse, there is then over exaggerated laughs and reactions because they are on youtube. Like everything is the funniest thing they have ever seen, so fake.

Fuck off you fake. unfunny pricks. It's no wonder so many teenagers now are so retarded and can't speak properly.

This attitude towards culture and media targeted and made by the younger generation.

Some of it will be good, some of it will be bad. If you are not the target market, loudly decrying it all as shit just makes you look ridiculous.

Young people will like different things to the previous generation, who liked different things to the previous generation, who liked different things to the previous generation, and so on for as long as you can be bothered to look.

Not half as ridiculous as over the top, brainless gimps "vibing". It's programming kids to be fake as fuck to try and beg for approval on social media and live their life by the number of followers and likes they get.

"Coming out later?"
"Nah I am practising my TikTok dance to show my 145 followers"

Sometimes there needs to be a reality check.

Ignorant pricks parking across my driveway and blocking my garage. We have some spivs next door and their chav family and friends have no respect when it comes to parking on other people’s (Namely mine) property.

Personally don’t think they’re trying to “claim” anything.
They are. It’s not an opinion. Street parking is a public utility and loss of it considered when you apply for a drop kerb. I’m well within my rights to park on any non dropped kerb assuming no other parking laws apply. It’s just people who don’t want to go through the planning process, well that’s the risk you take.

If they came to ask you to move, would you agree or give them the whole song and dance about parking rights?

I grew up on a street where this was a daily problem. In the early 00’s, getting a driveway put in seemed a trend.

Fair question. I’d probably move. But planning law exists for a reason and generally you shouldn’t just assume you can take a parking space for your own.

To put the other side, I lived in an area where most houses didn’t have drives and street parking is vital, especially if you’re a young family in a not so great area. So I have a bit of a trigger about people reducing available safe parking.

Shmmeee is right. It's perfectly legal to park Infront of a drive if there is no dropped kerb. I still don't do it as I don't want the hassle but it restricts where you can park especially when you live on a main road

It's actually *illegal* to park in your front garden if you have to drive over a footway that doesn't have a dropped kerb - it's the driving over the footway that is illegal rather than the parking.
And it's also illegal to park across any dropped kerb, even if it's your own!
There's some old twat just moved into Housing Association at the end of our drive - which is shared with three other houses and has a different road name, so it MIGHT actually be a junction, which it is illegal to park opposite. He insists on parking directly opposite our opening (when it suits him, mind you), rather than using the car park 30 yards away provided for their accommodation. which causes us real problems accessing our road/drive. Our neighbour is having a real run-in with him lately because it means he can't reverse his motorhome up the shared drive.
He's a real miserable old bastard, even when you ask him nicely to shift it.

Arrogant cunts driving... again.

Basically, pulled into the crescent I live in that has a side road running through the middle yesterday.

Woman in her Audi stopped in the middle of the road next to said side road. No indicators or hazards on.

Beeped and she half pulled to the side towards the side road, still obstructing the road if anyone wanted to turn left. I drove by and she's looking at her phone, so clearly looking at Sat-Nav or something.

Reversed back level to her and asked what are you doing? She just indicated "you can get round me?"

Fucking arrogance of the c**t. No, how about you park up and look at your phone you twat. Your c**t hubby next you should be bollocking you too.

Luckily they'd fucked off by time I had parked my car and walked back towards them. I was very cross. :ROFLMAO:

Paying a premium for a pint in a pub and it's shite. Paid £5.30 for a Peroni earlier and it was flat as anything.

Same goes with restaurants and pub food, most of the time it's poor quality food or poorly cooked, or both.

I’ll second that and add in pubs that try and suggest Fosters, Carling and Carlsberg are premium lagers😳

It’s funny how Nastro Azzurro is classed as a premium beer in the UK - it sells for around 80 cents for 660ml here.
