Something like that is just something I doubt I'll ever have the patience to learn let alone play successfully.

That Vauxhall ad with the 4 women 'bobbing along' to some mindless music.
You look like 4 mindless, gormless c***s.
It doesn't make me feel inclined to buy a Vauxhall, either.

The fact that mindless idiots who carry out acts of vandalism and generally act like dickheads are branded as 'England supporters'.

On holiday in a beautifully secluded rustic and rural spot in north Portugal, miles from the nearest paved road. The only sound is the happy birdsong, the crystal river rushing past below the veranda, and the church across the village playing a tinny, uber-distorted prerecorded 45 second peal of bells through Metallica's PA system EVERY THIRTY MINUTES.

No WC football until Tuesday. They should make the group losers do their own play off. I need it on every day please.

It does often make me wonder who buys anything that’s been advertised with that sort of mind numbing dross!!

People who have no sense of awareness in busy places such as a train station, they just randomly decide to stop and block off people without any thought. The most annoying are those who are walking towards a ticket barrier and then decide at the last moment to rummage through pockets or bags searching for their ticket or Oyster Card. Ridiculous, as if they don't know in advance they will need it.

Also mindless morons who choose to join a lengthy queue in a coffee shop and then proceed to complain to staff that they have a train to catch. Well don't ****ing join a long queue then you fat twats.

With you there, Hemel.
Obviously, road users with the similar, 'couldn't give a f*** about anyone else on the road' mentality, as well.
Selfie takers, probably.

People that stop in doorways and thoroughfares, and groups that walk three abreast on a pavement and expect you to step into the road to avoid them.

Do women with their kids in pushchairs have the divine right to push through crowds, forcing people out-of-the-way like they have the right of way?

Some bitch smashed into the back of my ankles on Saturday in a busy shop, and when I looked around and told her to watch where she was ****ing going, by the look on her face and her reaction, anyone would think I'd taken a :thdn: on her kids lap.

She offered no apology, and carried on forcing her way through the crowds.

Was I out of order?

A bit, though she probably should have asked you to step aside first. When I'm pushing my daughter in her buggy, I'm consistently amazed by how infrequently people will offer to make space for me to pass. My wife and I have been clipped by cars mounting the kerb in order to drop their kids off at the private school at the end of our road, doors swung open into us - never any apology or even acknowledgement of their actions. Add to that just how fragile and vulnerable a young life is in a pram, you do rather run short on patience with a world seemingly populated by people with an over developed sense of self-importance and an utter disregard for everyone and anyone else.

I understand that Dan, and I'm usually happy to move aside for people with pushchairs, the elderly or disabled, but she was behind me, so I was unaware and she rammed me in the ankles, and after me did it to a few others, who were also oblivious.

Maybe my reaction was unnecessary but, buggy or not that's unacceptable behavior in my opinion.

You should have stabbed her in the face in front of her traumatised infant.

There's a fine line between that and using the buggy as a weapon.

I couldn't believe that when I saw it so actually looked it up on YouTube to make sure I wasn't hallucinating like before. I've come to the conclusion that it's supposed to be tongue in cheek. There's no way they can be serious.

No. The onus is always on the person behind to avoid a knock, whether person, vehicle, pushchair or wheelchair.
To just push your way through, regardless of people's ankles, is just bad form & the height of ignorance.
