    Sitting in my living room with a cold, with a bog roll next to me on the sofa, then going for a dump and forgetting said bog roll, thus ending up unarmed in a state of reduced hygiene.

    "The HMS.....". It's either "HMS Shipname" or "The Shipname", and the BBC, as the biggest culprit, should know better.

    Going to add people who get back into their cars and then fiddle about for ages before pulling off; write milage in a little ****in book, set the sat nav, adjust the mirror, pull on the seat belt and then pull away.

    HMS Shipname? Bloody hell, the navy are really lacking imagination these days, even Wifename or Mydogname could think of something better!

    Sean Bean. His name should rhyme but it doesn't. You're either 'Seen Been' or 'Shawn Bourne'. You're not having it both ways, kn*bhead.

    Small writing on food packaging. All I want is to know how long it takes in the oven which shouldn’t have the same focus and prominence of the emulsifier details.

    Remember, we are the nation that gave the World "Boaty McBoatface".
    ( Also, on Monday I saw a road cleaning truck named Meryl Sweep ).

    That name was superb and should have stuck.

    I should add to this thread "People who put decisions in the hands of the public then get upset when they don't like the public's decision (this comment is NOT Brexit related)."

    HMS Boaty McBoatface.
    Settled. The perfect name for a ship.

    The popular vote always wins except in general elections.

    Lorries overtaking other lorries on the motorway, creating a massive queue of traffic in their wake as one speed limited tosser fights to get in front of another speed limited tosser who could slow down a couple of mph to help everyone out but would rather be a ****.

    People getting on trains on the first carriage then walking the whole length to find a seat , even though the train is not due to leave for another 10/15 minutes.

    Just walk along the platform ffs.

    Yes it is

    but banning plastic straws (which apparently can be recycled) for paper straws (that apparently can't) to be used with a plastic cup (with a plastic lid) is f-ing stupid

    Same with paper bags in supermarkets. The carbon footprint is make those is more damaging to the environment than plastic bags.
    As long as people feel better about themselves making almost no positive impact to the environment, great!

    Paper is biodegradable.

    Plastic is not.

    The cups can be recycled at specialist centres.

    The lids are made from recycled plastic.

    The straws are biodegradable and therefore much less harmful
    I've not been to a British supermarket with paper bags, pretty much everywhere is reusable bags now.
    Harry and Meg have never claimed they would solve the worlds problems but they're doing their bit. If everyone only had 2 or fewer children, it would solve 90% of the environment's issues.

    To be fair the carbon footprint of the average Royal is probably not very little.

    Because the two children he does have will on average have a much much larger carbon footprint than most other people in the country. The only reason he announced that was to virtue signal and make himself feel good about what a special person he is. That attitude which is pervasive in modern society is what annoys me.

    Call centres. Especially ones that spend the first couple of minutes telling you that you can find all your answers on their website. Don't they realise that if I could find what I wanted there I wouldn't be calling them?

    ^Very much this

    And the cretins that do this tend to have 16 bags strapped around their neck, thus clattering into everyone as they walk down the carriage. Buffoons.

    And every single call centre on the planet plays the recorded "We're experiencing an unusally high volume of calls at the moment" message.... no you're f***ing not.... what you're experiencing is a NORMAL volume of calls... the same number of calls you've received on average for the last 79,478 days.... stop lying to people you utter *****

    I am pleased to know that you are privy to Prince Harry's inner thoughts and know why he does things.

    Perhaps you could expand this skill to someone more important - like Ralph Hassenhutl.

    How else would you explain the announcement? If he was sincere in his desire to help the planet then he would renounce his titles and live a much meagre lifestyle. He won't of course which is why it's quite acceptable to question his motives for the announcement

    Suggestions that people are incapable of communicating with others while driving.
    I'm horrified to discover that there are sections of the population that require 100% of their brain capacity to operate a car.
    Most people have plenty spare and can talk, think, listen to music etc.

    I used to save the crossword for the drive home. Frowned upon now.

    I don't know if you've spent any time in Turkey. People there know how to operate vehicles. I once saw a lad riding his motor scooter through the pedestrian area of a shopping mall, one handed, the other hand holding a beer bottle and all without the need of a helmet.

    Having just driven up and down France this was a particular problem with their two lane roads. Although tbf their roads embarrass ours with how quickly you can get around.
    Lorry drivers are generally cnts.

    South Today and Meridian News have both surrendered.
    National features cobbled together between thinly-disguised adverts for their own programmes, or dull stories about plucky pets.
    RIP local news.
