Things that irritate me

Anita McVeigh and Carrie Gracie endlessly repeating the same "news" script every couple of minutes....and that Rita Chuklebutty who names a reporter four times every time she speaks to another reporter. We want to know what the piece is about not the feckn reporter's name - their name is irrelevant.

...and breathe.

Metre = a metric unit of measurement
Meter = something you bypass to avoid paying your lekky bill.
However comma the yanks spell it meter and some Brits do ;-)

The Brits are grammatically incorrect.
The yanks hold their forks in their left hand and use it like a shovel.
Other differences in culture are available but they will always be wrong.
"Metre is the standard spelling of the metric unit for length in nearly all English-speaking nations except the United States "

Correction. They hold their forks in the right hand and use it like a shovel. ...you’re supposed to hold it in the left.
 
Thick as **** dog walkers.

I went out for a walk this afternoon, making the most of being allowed out. While walking about there's a large amount of dog shit on the ground which is fair enough, it was almost all off the paths and in the rough grass.

It then turns out some of these ******* brain donors have wrapped their dog's shit in a plastic bag and promptly abandoned that sealed bag in the middle of the path. I'd rather they just left it alone, with a bit of rain there won't be much left after a few weeks but wrapped in a plastic bag it will be there much longer.

As I was heading back the stunned cnuts had gone one better and started piling up their dog shit in plastic bags. It was like a modern art version of a cairn, only instead of stones it was built of plastic wrapped shit and instead of identifying a path it identified these clueless ******* mongs as needing to be shot.

I also spotted a couple of dog owners being responsible and taking their mutt's crap back with them in bags to dispose of elsewhere.
When we had dogs I had an old Royal Mail Escort van that I'd turned into a dogmobile. Putting them into the back one day I hung the two tied-up plastic bags of goodness on the towbar.
I forgot them; by the time I got home and unloaded the mutts there was just two shitty lengths of plastic hanging from the handles. I like to think there was the mother of all skidmarks somewhere on the route.

People who can't maintain 2 metres even when queuing across a car park with lines marked for parking spaces!

Day after the separation thing kicked off I had to go to B&Q as my back gate decided to hang off. The staff were making sure that people were keeping apart and the queue for the tills went up one of the aisles with tape on the floor every 2m. I was about third in the queue when this numpty decides to browse up and down the aisle about a foot from the queue. Before he got to me he looked up and made eye contact. He seemed to get the message.

In fairness though it’s easy to just go on normal jogging if you don’t constantly stay aware. I hate people anyway so it’s not a problem.
 
My selfish brother.

58 and still lives at home with our 86 year old mother.

He's self-isolating now.

He's continued to work the past weeks, so why couldn't he go and stay with the mate he works and socialises with who also has it?

In music, metre (Am. meter) refers to the regularly recurring patterns and accents such as bars and beats. Unlike rhythm, metric onsets are not necessarily sounded, but are nevertheless expected by the listener.

According to wikipedia
 
Promotion hungry thrusters.
We have a whole building full of Warranted Officers who spend their time producing vital policies and schemes to make them 'look good' which are generally ignored as soon as they put out the latest way of doing things.

Now this could truly be a time for them to shine and do something effective; sort of 'Chief, there's not much call for my vitally important transgender traveller policy right now, so I'm going to pull out the old uniform and work on response as a PC'.

Yesterday I find am email telling me to fill in the attached spreadsheet with a list of my 'skillset'.

Now apart from the fact my address block on the email pretty much covers it, all this info is already held on a database, which someone more intelligent asked us to update and check that address/phone numbers were current last week.

This request has clearly come from someone promoted beyond their ability as its to be completed on Excel, the standard location these types these types use as Access is too difficult to use, so a big list of stuff on an unwieldy spreadsheet where you cant easily read the data is what you need.
 
I have discovered my wife hates vinegar on chips. I can cope with it.

Now when we are out I put vinegar on the chips as soon as I can. After a month or two she realised if she wanted chips she had to order them herself, no changing her mind half way through a meal and grazing mine.

Job jobbed.
No wonder there's a marked increase in domestic violence!
 
Worse than than some ********* bag up hound cable, tie a knot in the top of the bag, and tie it to the branches of trees. Surely they know someone is going to have to deal with that?

If you are going to pick it up and bag it, carrying it home or to a dog poo bin is not going to be that much trouble.

Mindlessness strikes again.
Their mothers must have been protesters at Greenham Common and it is an inherited trait
