Home for the terminally bewildered, one step ahead
These are purely my views, some may agree, some may disagree, deal with it 😉🤪

Deal or no deal

Steven mulhern

Every “reality show”

Fake lips

Felt tip pen eyebrows

False suspense

Online gambling adverts. “We have a range of tools to help you” yeah , Cheers for that but I won’t bother as I’m an addict

Xmas Adverts

Zero to hero Sparks

People who constantly say 'super, literally, cool, stoked, pumped, I’m all about'

Forced /false inclusivity

Greggs Wallace

Perfume adverts….'Desperation the new fragrance by Swarfega'

Tea , the devils Urine

Knightsbridge products

KSRs inability to make a PIR which has wires long enough to reach the connector strip on their own fittings

Chinesium and Unobtainium

Rosie Jones

Items described as Artisanal or Designer

Alan Carr

Jonaffon Wossss

"All the trimmings"…..ALL,'! Seriously!!

Companies that 'reach out' OR use that expression

Words invented to fill a niche hole that doesn’t exist! Like Mysoginoir! Google it

Alex Brooker

Enforced zany acts by Z list celebs

Panto

Charity appeals by Stars who have zillions in the bank

Energy prices

Charity C.E.O.s salaries. Cancer research £270k basic!

Small food portions on big plates

Food served on anything other than crockery! Soup in a flat cap, oysters on a coal shovel

Menus where the price is just a number, no '£' sign

Any TV offering with the word s "Curse of" in them

Paranormal programs, not seen a pic of a ghost yet

People who feel offended on behalf of people they don’t know

All but one MP. Don’t know which one BUT there must be one

Tenants

Letting agents





…here endeth part 1
 
Horne owners or tenants who don’t understand that homes need ventilation

All politicians at every level

The once great BBC

Too much “news”

Predictive Text

Hugely dramatic misleading weather forecasts

Regulators with absolutely no teeth

watch less TV, it improves your life :)
 
Same area but different. Not panicking yet as you are born with a finite set of worries and I don’t want to run out of them prematurely
Good luck with the treatment. Dad survived to 89 with his prostrate cancer, and it wasn't that that killed him in the end. So hopefully we can look forward to lots more of your musings on the world. 🤞
 
I’d love to however a recent cancer issue has sort of put everything on a back burner 😡
Hey ho, surgeon on Thursday to discuss stuff, until then it’s Rachel Riley’s best bits
So sorry to hear that. There are a lot of us on this forum with the big C, some C's bigger than others.
There was a lot of chat on it some time ago and the outcome was to get it into the open and talk about it. I think you had a fair say on it then?
Like Bob Hoskins said on that old BT ad, "It's good to talk.”
If you want to chat offline, I'm here.

I have calmed down a lot and refuse to mention the employers of orange pinny wearing 'mate signallers' whose reneging on warranties and absolutely piss poor customer service is beyond belief

Just saying

Ah.. but.. yes.. but.. no.. but... WTF!!!!
Are you aware the the B&Q website now sells Non-B&Q products.. From Non-B&Q suppliers...

So virtual non-orange-pinny-wearing suppliers can do even more damage/poor sales than the B&Q "logo'd, uniformed staff can do!

My youngest daughter bought a lamp from B&Q website..
not realising that it was from a third party, non-B&Q supplier..!!!

Basically new light was crap!!!
Non-compliant with UK supply of goods legislation!!

So I had to draught a few e-mails before she got her money back!!
 
Adults that use words like , yummy,,scrummy..to die for…
Count "sleeps"as a measure of time
Count time until school,holidays as a measure of time ! FFs wife says '27 days to half term' just say a fecking date like an adult
Toy Hospital…..utter faeces
McDonald’s adverts
McDonald’s
Macintyre …..should be UNDER a 🛞
Paul McCartney
Cliff
Yank feckwits that cannot pronounce SOLDER and instead say SODDER, Erbs instead of HERBS, etc
 
Twats that go on about someone "gifted" me something, not they did not , they gave it to you..

Just as bad is the fuckwits that came on here stating they "changed something out" no they ******* never, they replaced the ******* thing..

john..
 
Can I get
Cool
Awesome
‘What’s the death on this item'

Vegemite
Vegan Leather, it’s PLASTIC
