    On Facebook, I unfortunately found a lad I went to school with.
    "Born to piss people off" and "Former top fucking dog at Mind Your Own Business" also "Studied at Uni of Life"
    so in conclusion, a hat-trick of c**ty sayings = 1 big c**t.

    People who stay tight to the roundabout, then drift to the inside lane when exiting.

    The worst part is, they genuinely don't know what they've done wrong :rolleyes:

    Multi pack crisps. I swear they put the sweepings up of what's left in the factory into multi packs.

    you are kidding

    Thomas Sullivan and an accidental American invention. Needless to say, it was in America, with its love of labour-saving devices, that tea bags were first developed. In around 1908, Thomas Sullivan, a New York tea merchant, started to send samples of tea to his customers in small silken bags.

    No I'm not, that was different kind of tea bag. The kind everyone is familiar with is made using the powder left over from the processing of tea leaves which would otherwise be thrown away. It clogs up the machines and has to be regularly swept out.

    Sullivan's bags were just loose leaf tea in small packages intended to be emptied into a tea pot before use.

    Drivers who take about a month to turn the corner. They indicate halfway down the street slow down about 500 yards before the corner, virtually stop at the corner and then slowly creep around it. Idiots!

    does calling them 'grab bags' mean it's OK to steal them?

    People cheating at sport. In the last 2 weeks opposition cricket teams have appealed and then admitted that a, batsman hadn't hit the ball, b, LBW outside the line and way too high (both given out) and c, refused to give 2 clear stumping against their best player.
    If they need to cheat to try and win (they didn't win btw) then why bother playing.

    I know a guy who does this at golf, the ball just appears on the green or gets found somewhere in the jungle.... or he scuffs it for 20 shots and still ends up with a 6.

    It's called safe driving. He probably left 10 minutes early so he wouldn't have to rush, whereas you left 10 minutes late and were in a hurry.

    Part of the reason I stopped playing Cricket.
    When I dropped down from the the firsts where we had proper umpires to 2nds & 3rds and teams self umpiring it's a joke I was a bowler and for whatever reason my main mode of dismissal was LBW, it was getting to the point of 4/5 a game full bang in front nothing would wind me up a treat, I had 3 in an over once and their number 11 bat who was umpiring started laughing as he could tell I was more and more wound up!

    I got sawn off by an umpire in the firsts who wanted to go home.

    Played in a game in Leicester where our guy was umpiring (he is now a high level umpire county seconds and other stuff just below county) I nicked it to the keeper (a big big nick) and he didn't give it but I walked off in disgust after I asked him why he didn't give it and he said the opposition had been cheated and needed teaching a lesson.

    That was the prob both teams usually as bad as each other, that's why I'd happily score all innings if I wasn't needed to bat!

    Old people with a sense of self-entitlement/complete lack of awareness round roads. I've just been at a junction and as I was about to go a guy on a mobility scooter just pulls out from the path straight in front of me, then starts shouting at me bizarrely. Wind my window down to give him some back but I was just completely speechless.

    Just reading a book (knowing the score - David Papineau ) which covers this (and other) questions - very good.

    People who feign injury so they can claim disability benefits whilst then describing such payments as "being paid". That would be 3 of my brother in laws. In the 14 years i've known them they have not done a days work between them when there's nothing stopping them from gaining employment other than them being idle bastards. That and a dodgy doctor who will vouch for their 'disabilites'.

    One of them had a home assessment the other month. Out came a walking stick, he stayed in his bed clothes as he's in too much pain to dress and he didn't shave for days to complete the look. He even needs someone to go over and help him in and out of the bath and he's house bound. All bollocks but they found in his favour and upped his payments. I just hope one day they turn up whilst he's outside doing his garden. Makes my blood boil!

    I have similar experiences. I drive a 26 ton truck around Brighton. The amount of tossers that brazenly step out into the road in front of me, usually wearing headphones, and then start calling me a wanker astounds me. I swear these dickheads want to be run over.
