    The constant coverage of terror attacks. Yes they should be reported, but giving jihadist's constant publicity is giving them what they want.

    People who add weird terms into things that really aren't needed.

    "Are you a web development ninja?"
    "Web Server Wizard"

    What's that all about.

    People who create Facebook pages in their pets names and then post as if they are the pet


    Those little feckers on mopeds who are causing chaos on the Keresely road by pulling wheelies and generally being little fannies

    I disagree Daz, little fannies are useful.

    One of those little
    them feckers on mopeds aren't

    Last night I was driving down the road one of them overtook me on the outside then pulled a wheelie slowed down to about 5 miles an hour for ages then stopped dead in the road before doing another wheelie and dashing off

    Only a matter of time before there's a serious accident

    Must have been said on here already but Facebook lives where people post about their dinner and everything they do on holiday just eat the food and enjoy the holiday I don't give a shit about either. My niece is terrible for this to the point that she put an itinerary on about when she is on holiday surprisingly she hasn't had her house broken into yet

    People who go and on about food, saying I spent six hours in the kitchen today preparing and making this meal well I opened a box and chucked something in the oven, same result both fed. They wasted a quarter of a day in the kitchen where I had time to waste on here instead moaning.

    People who put selfies on Facebook etc looking for comments like looking great babe, I am going to start asking if they have put weight on or say not looking at your best today.

    I am on a one man crusade of meanness today

    People who think it's a great idea to walk their dogs when it's stupidly hot. Nothing better than on a hot day than to take your poor dog out who just wants to sit in the shade with a bowl of water next to them for a long walk. Most of them really don't like it, stop being selfish.

    Saw a bloke dragging his labrador down the street yesterday, poor thing was about to collapse and was panting non stop. Leave it indoors to sleep and if you have to go for a walk go later on when it's cooler or dark.

    I don't mind the pictures of food, but only if the food warrants it. Someone's blurry photo of a Sunday roast that looks like a grey sludge can get to fuck.

    Salary negotiation.

    Not really experienced this as a teacher, you get where you are on the pay scale and that's that.

    Just got a job in private industry and it came up in the interview.

    Firstly, no fucking job advert puts a salary. How the fuck do I know if I want to apply when you just put "competitive"? I've seen jobs at NMW described as "competitive" FFS. You literally can't get less competitive that the legal minimum!

    Then in the actual interview you get the song and dance. "What salary are you looking for?" Well as much as I can get fucking obviously.

    Youre the ones with the job, what is it worth to you?

    I'd been told a figure by the recruitment agent (there's another post: fucking recruitment consultants) so just went with that. Ended up being offered a guaranteed rise after three months because he thought I under sold myself.

    I mean in a sales role fair enough, but in a technical role just pay me what you think the job is worth.

    I've never understood it when they don't say. IE if your salary expectations are £30k why would you even waste yours and their time if they were offering £12k.

    Least you are getting a rise :)

    I take mine out on a hot day so he can cool down. We can get from our house to the beach only spending a few seconds on a path. The only problem I have is getting him out of the sea. He normally meets some of his mates down there.

    With it being as hot as it has been walking you dog can burn their paws. I'm lucky, mine doesn't get all hyper if he doesn't go for a walk so I just let him wander round the garden, that way he can get in to the shade whenever he wants.
