    I'm not the type to tell people to fuck off.

    I've also watched too many investigative shows.

    Driving past the nursery school this morning and I see a bunch of wealthy chav mums with their expensive Range Rovers/BMWs parked up all one side of the road, their kids running around on the kerbside. The mums are chatting away to each other, not paying attention to any of the kids and smoking to boot in front of the school gates. If you're going to have a kid, at least take a little interest in them and their health and don't f*ckin puff smoke in their faces... not to mention the other kids on the way to nursery. Geez... am I being unreasonable?

    Something I really hate is when people keep bothering me even though I've told them to leave me alone. An example is that I had to tell two different people to fuck off in Peckham on Friday, even though I was having a really good day :D

    How difficult can it be to make trains go forward on time? Going to be late for the cinema now. Hopefully enough trailers /adverts so I don't miss anything. :(

    So, the Japanese teacher at my local college offering part time language courses to adults is being made redundant, along with ten (!!!) other foreign language tutors, due to government cuts.

    Adult learning programs are hard to come by as it is, but cutting the useful ones?! Because English is guaranteed to be fluently spoken anywhere in the world, right? 'Big Society', my arse; if you can't be bothered to invest a little money (the college's shortfall is 69,000) in educating your populous, then don't fucking whinge about the problems that will permeate it as a result these stupid decisions. And even if cuts are necessary, don't pull the plug in one academic fucking year, denying the opportunity for these institutions to strategise and plan a way to deal with the issue in a timely and coordinated fashion.

    Utter, utter cunts; fuck this government and their policies.

    Im an adult tutor part time (not language) employed by the council and the amount of Bullshit courses they run at the expense of proper useful ones such as languages is unreal.

    Councils and the wider government will fuck you up the arse every time.

    I really hate the twats on sites like trip advisor who spout moronic obvious advice when someone asks about safety advice. its shit like:
    "don't drink 25 beers and stagger home shouting at people" "don't flash hundreds of pounds or wear a rolex in a poor country" Not shit, really? what are you not fixing the world problems with such obvious advice

    The worst bit is they so smug and arogant

    Hy iPad and my Galaxy Note 10 both have screens that are higher resolution and larger than the PC monitors I had for years, and they both are fairly heft machines.

    So why the fuck are they so fucking shit for web browsing?

    Every fucking web site either spams you with pop ups "Did you you we have a shitty app that will offer you 20% of the normally functionality of the site and we will annoy you every single fucking time you visit with exhortations to download it!!!!!"

    Or even worse are the sites that autonatically redirect you to the shitty version, at least EG and BBC offer you a choice, but stuff like facebook doesn't even offer that.

    And yes, I know most browsers have desktop settings, but even with those turned on I find it very hit and miss.

    "Can you move down please?"

    No. Fuck off you twit, we are not all crammed around the door frame for a jolly jape. How about you take your huffy school teacher voice on to the next train, which is less than 1 minute behind you, you fucking knob. Or better yet get up 15 minutes early and you can avoid having to face such an obviously traumatising process.

    Bus foot tapping.

    This seems to be solely the preserve of 30+ white, suited business men. Hey guess what foot drum? Your fucking foot tapping is carrying the whole way down the carriage/upper floor of the bus. Whether you are getting down to The Lighthouse Family or simply planning a wank rythym for later in the day, it is horribly annoying and every other passenger is fantasising about how they can murder you.

    Gonig to have to disagree with you there, there is very little more annoying than seeing a tube carriage where everyone is crowded around the door space because some oblivious pillock won't move down or make way for people to stand in the empty space around the seats. One of my biggest annoyances of using public transport.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Must be one of the rare times then. Almost anytime everyone is crowded near the doors it's because they just stepped on and stopped there.
    If your stood outside waiting to get on and see space for about 20 people in the aisles between the two entrances, it's a bit annoying to say the least.

    Bought a bed and the notes said that a delivery slot would be confirmed in advance. Today they confirmed that the delivery would be between 7 and 7 tomorrow, so I have to try to take a day's holiday at next to no notice, meaning I'm going to have to contact a colleague at home to make sure my shift is covered.

    Cunts! 12 hours isn't a delivery slot, its a whole bloody day. I won't even be able to play games with headphones on as I won't hear the door buzzer if I do.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    The correct thing to do is uncomfortably force your way in to the train, apologising as you do so and then stand and seethe for the rest of the journey.

    So after taking a day's holiday to allow someone to deliver a be between 7 and 7, dismantling the old bed to make space, discovering the new inflatable mattress has a slow puncture and waiting in all day doing only very quiet activities to ensure I could hear the door buzzer, we have no bed.

    To make things worse, we're dog-sitting for my parents this weekend, so my sister-in-law is dog-sitting for us in our flat. It now looks like we might have made her spend the weekend without a bed.

    NOT HAPPY!

    Why can't your sister-in-law dog-sit for your parents leaving you free to do whatever it is that bed-less people do?

    Hmm. Didn't think of that. I wish I had ranted sooner, then that might have been a possibility.

    I'm sorry, I know this is a safe place for you to vent your anger. But did you genuinely not think of that at any point whilst making this plan?

    I mean, there must be more to it right?

    it's just the way we've usually done things if my parents need a dog-sitter. My wife and I have been full of the cold and Ive been a bit stressed in general this week and it increasingly seems I've not been at my brightest.

    I'm still allowed to be pissed off that I spent all day in waiting for a bed which didn't arrive, right?

    Car drivers in front of you slower than bicyclists, and as soon as you start overtaking, they hit the gas. Antisocial fucks need their noses broken.

    And game devs applying cinematic loudness levels. Turning down the volume to 20%, with the exception of a few dramatic effects/music scores at full volume.

    So I have to turn up the volume to 11, and then at certain points of the game the speakers explode and all the dogs in the neighbourhood go crazy.

    Not everyone is playing their games in a cinema, so give me the fucking choice to disable that crap you stupid arseholes.

    On the way back from making a coffee my boss stopped me and said that the new iPad, that I've been after for ages for testing, had finally arrived and was on my desk.

    So off I went and found a childs Fisher Price 'Magna Doodle' sitting there with a picture of an apple drawn on it.

    Bastards!

    I'm so sick and tired of colour grading being misused in movies. It looks shit, it looks completely not like reality, it takes me out of the scene because I'm busy getting annoyed by how FUCKING YELLOW everything is. Real life isn't yellow all the fucking time.

    Zodiac is one motherfucking yellow film but not quite as yellow as Side Effects (which is otherwise excellent). Please stop making everything look insipid, not real and...yellow. Or blue. Or fucking beige.

    Bah, some tosser has scuffed my car! How can you not understand where your car is? Plus the fact you must know you've done it and just shrugged and gone 'oh well'. I wouldn't mind so much if they'd just acknowledged they'd messed up and apologised.
