Cloud - Altocumulus on Thursdays

Boxes of wine that pretend to be empty and you have to tear them apart with your teeth to get another one and three quarter full glasses full by squeezing the pouch and wondering if you look like a total alkie doing it.

The way they've started putting amber lights down the side of lorries (In the UK). At a glance you think they are indicators. 'Til they don't flash. That is.

Yes, that annoys me too. It worries me when i'm overtaking that they're about to pull out as i pass. Why are they using the same colour as indicators?smiley - huh

Sorry, forgot to add text there.

Making life simple by using, say, green coloured thingies on the trucks would be much too easy, don't you think? Where's the fun in that?

Any phrase or word relating to a person's sexuality that isn't one of the big three (hetero, homo, bi) ... for example, pansexual (which seems to be a bisexual person with grander aspertions)

This sure is a petty hate and it may be just me, but when staying in a B&B I hate the way they give you coffee BEFORE the breakfast. This spoils my enjoyment of the meal - I want to taste my full english, not coffee!

Actually, my experiences are mainly good as i tend to visit nice wee places in remote parts of the Scottish and Irish countryside, however there are still a list of annoying petty hates associated with them (many of which are subjective, i realisesmiley - smiley). OK, let's start with;

Toast served nowhere near the time you will be eating it- usually about 10 minutes before the tea/coffee has arrived= cold toast.

B+B' owners kids running about the place, especially in the kitchen where my brekkie is being prepared. Nough said really smiley - grr

Inflexible breakfast times. Yes, yes, i know i should be getting out there bright and early and the hosts have there own lives to get on with, blah, blah... but, part of a holiday for me is a lie in!

Over-friendly hosts. I mean *really over-friendly. I know it's all part of the charm of remote rural locations with their friendly locals, but honestly sometimes they really do seem to be trying too hard for that favourable mention in the guest-book. I was stuck 'chatting' with one for over an hour on one occasionsmiley - wah

The assumption that you'll be cold; Vast acres of triple duvets and blankets to haul off the bed before you can find the base sheet.smiley - erm (Mind you, The only time i stayed in a guest house without double glazed windows, there was only the flimsiest of duvets, and it was made out of rockwool)

There's probably more..smiley - zzz

This makes me cringe. When adverts change the lyrics of great songs (and sometimes not-so-great) to try to sell their wares. I actually find it buttock clenchingly embarassing.

I won't mention any names.



Halifax.






And get rid of that idiot with the glasses who thinks he's a popular celebrity.
