Elmbridge, who have responded with utter contempt whenever I've reported anything to do with the refuse collection (the one visible service my council tax pays for). They broke the lid on our refuse wheelie bin a few weeks ago and refused to replace it, telling me I could buy a new one for £77. We've been here over 9 years and the bloody thing wasn't new when we moved in.

Being able to hear Steps (the **** pop group) live from my garden, despite living more than a mile away from the outdoor concert!!

I don't normally wish for bad weather, but if a hurricane could sweep through here now, I'd be grateful.

It's a nice evening and I don't want to sit inside with the windows and doors shut you talentless *****

Make your own. I love a home made curry. The red is usually just food colouring but you will be able to adjust the sweetness, heat etc to your taste.

Ask them to make it "Bengali style - not sweet and slightly hotter" and it will be better. My local Indian manager told me this tip years ago and it's stood me in good stead ever since.

I went to get the car out of the garage this morning, and there was an enormous black toad sitting under the tyre. I mean enormous, like the size of my head, and I've got a very big head.

So I did what every man would do. I took Mrs Monkeybubbles car instead, and left her to deal with the ****ing gollum.

Almost always bought pastry, too, with the chef explaining that there's no point in making your own.
