I have recently pissed off a large part of the British Army by making our system more secure :D

The 20-somethings at work prefer to leave their soiled dishes and mugs next to it instead. Presumably they all still live at home with their parents and so havent yet learned how to operate a dishwasher.

Speaking of work, there's a bloke "hot desking" in the empty desk next to me today. He appears to be unable to concentrate unless he jiggles his leg, which is causing my desk to vibrate. I'd ask him to stop, but I suspect breaking his leg at the knee would be a more satisfactory solution.

Beggars. Not the genuine homeless, the scourge of professional types around London now.

Like the bloke that sits on his suitcase with his feet bared like he has to survive the cold streets of London with no shoes, and yet can afford to clean his clothes, shave etc. Or the old woman with the zimmer frame on wheels that slowly walks along as if she's on her last legs and is about to keel over, but has enough strength to look up and reach out a hand asking for money whenever someone passes her.

Piss taking freeloaders. Is there not a camp somewhere we could round them all up and send them too?

Opening up me annual tax summary only to find that for some bizarre reason I've been paying Scottish Income tax for the year, meaning I'm £60 worse off. That isn't the worst of it though, the bit that irritates me is that I've been funding Salmon while he was rubbing off Sturgeons knoblet.........

Ask him if he has found a way of having a leg ****, loud enough so others hear, that will stop him

In the news today, 4 kids have died in a house fire.

As if that's bad enough, BBC news has published pictures of the kids. Why do we need to see pictures of the kids? Is it not common decency to not use dead kids pictures to get extra hits on your news website?

There's a VW advert on Radio X at the moment, about a February sales event..

The ****ing woman voicing the advert says Febuwwuwry and it does my nut in!!

Now, are they being clever, because I remember every ****ing word of that advert now.. or is it just me?

Just me.. ok..

Car insurers: Complete & utter, pisstaking c**ts. They seemingly are allowed to get away with so much.

My wife had the same. She was the second stationary car at a roundabout, saw there was a good chance to get out as there was nothing on the right. Unfortunately the Mercedes in front of her hadn't moved so she tapped it.
The driver even claimed she suffered lower back pains due to my wife hitting without stopping.
my wife's insurance company took for gospel what the Merc driver said despite my wife giving a different story and photos of the Merc in which you couldn't see any actual damage.

You do wonder if what the Merc did was deliberate..
