    Don't know what the point is, never had them when I was a kid.

    Why don't they just go up Nuneaton in their school trousers and shoes like we did and get involved. Why get a limo and be all pretentious about it?

    Double yellows on residential roads that don't need it. Everyone's out when the traffic warden comes round, so you on;y get those like me who start their day a bit later. When there's actually cars blocking something it's 10 o'clock at night and never a warden to be seen.

    The fact the fuckers drive past tens of offences to get to my road where they know they can ticket someone. The fact that they will give you a ticket literally as you put the kids into the car. The fact that they won't do fuck all about the people leaving cars for sale or massive trailers without road tax or fucking mobile homes that they live in on our road so residents can't park.

    The fact that they're a stupid fat fuck on a moped without the skills to get a proper job.

    Fuck traffic wardens.

    Had that at the Blue Orchid. They must have asked 15 times through the meal. I started to worry everything wasn't alright and they were worried about liability in the end.

    Yeah it pisses me off when you shovel a mouthful of food in and they come over and ask if it's all OK all the time. If it wasn't we would let you know.

    When you think you are with your mates and you crack a joke.

    However, you are either with your child or a group of people who wouldn't find it funny or appreciate it so in your head you tell yourself you are hilarious, you have to just have people look at you funny.

    I'm tempted to park on a double yellow line when the traffic warden is about. When challenged, I will claim a disability. And if asked which disability, I will shout back 'Tourettes, fuck off!'

    Toby Fayre, I'm a happy chappy, but don't like any musicals as I find the singing scenes get in the way of a good movie.

    Know where you're coming from. Actors like Howard Keel made a very good living from being able to burst into song during a film. Ruined it for me though when he joined Dallas and kept waiting for him to bellow Oh What a Beautiful Morning to Miss Ellie. Never happened.

    Talking about musicals, one film where it kind of worked for me was 'Mamma Mia'. Not that I'm a big fan of Meryl Streep or Pierce Brosnan singing. I think they were both miscast.

    Especially when they have them on both the normal route and the detour at the same time!

    They clearly are, their masculinity isn't threatened by some singing and dancing.

    Or even musical blinds? Maybe playing Oh What a Beautiful Morning when you roll it up and Farewell Goodbye when you pull it down?

    When you get to a roundabout and give way to a car you think is going straight ahead, yet they signal almost when there about to turn and go round the corner

    Any traffic lights that run on a timer and not by sensing traffic. Come on it's the 21st century, I shouldn't be sat around waiting for phantom cars.

    People who say we should all walk or bike to work to save the environment.
    My job is 12 miles away and my workplace does not have showers!

    You will probably find these same people meeting at a conference to discuss it and they all fly there.
