I get there and there's a car with a puncture and the mum trying to change the wheel. She had 4 kids with her and she said she'd been there since 2.45 and not only had no one offered to help her but that she had asked plenty of people who had said no.

Her attempts were valiant but awful. She had used the jack upside down and so couldn't turn it very much and wasn't able to loosen any of the nuts.

Oi, you lot out there. Start being helpful to people for ****'s sake.

Bloody women, they say they want gender equality - well they should start by learning how to change a tyre. It isn't hard.

This one had been gunned in too hard at the garage. I had to jump onto the wrench a few times to get the nuts to loosen and I'm 14 stones.

You ask someone how much something is going to cost - in this case getting an EPC done - and are given a price. We're selling our house and it's obviously not a business venture. The invoice comes out and it's the price, plus the VAT. Just tell us the whole price from the ****ing start. Same with the garage and various other places - I'm not VAT exempt, I'm paying for a service, give me the full cost.

One of my mates has it incredibly bad, has been to the quacks to try and make it more bearable.

We were going to go and watch the Rifles last December, left his house before he told me he just wanted to make sure he turned the bathroom light off. Fifteen minutes later and he was still in there going round every single switch.

Seems to be a bit better now, but found it incredible how bad it can effect some.

I was in the fractures clinic a couple of months ago and the sights in there made me think of the Darwin Awards. How these people haven't been deselected by evolution is beyond me.

Moths. Never encountered a moth that wasn't a twat. It's that time of year that requires opening a window or two, and there we are. And they never knacker your crappy clothes either, only the nice stuff.

Attention-seeking narcissists; 'oh I'm nocturnal but will head for something lit-up'.

My overly vivid and admittedly odd mind-set can easily perceive a bunch of butterflies discussing them and calling them hipsters.

On a vaguely related note, and I may have posted this before: Slugs.

Slugs totally have me over, to the point at which I'd describe it as a phobia. I can't knowingly go within five yards of one without feeling a bit light headed and panicky. I would honestly rather wrestle a rottweiler than handle a slug. And a bit of warm weather, a bit of rain, and now suddenly our garden is heaving with the little qunts.

If anyone wants me, I'll be up in the loft. In the middle of a circle of salt. With a flamethrower.

^ I've got a bit of an issue with them in my house, they keep coming in under the floorboards/through gaps into the kitchen and hallway.

Finding and blocking up all holes that they get through is difficult.

They only come out at night, the disgusting slimy things.

I learned this morning that my Labrador has an irrational fear of the slimy ****ers, the idiot was barking at them, such a brave boy though.

There were hundreds of them down the lane where we were walking!
