"This machine does not have a function to issue receipts."


THEN WHAT THE **** DID IT ASK ME FOR :x


The other one is the ATMs that let you enter pin, select cash and select the amount BEFORE telling you they have no money in them!

Belly button fluff is irritating.
Why is it always a different colour to any clothes you've actually worn?

Twats who walk their dogs between 11am and 3pm this time of year. I would like to see them go for a run at the hottest part of the day with a thick coat on and see how they fare. They also fail to realise how hot the pavement gets, I wouldn't want to go bare foot in these temperatures :evil:

Ok fair enough but all that shows are National Express are liars as it was one of the senior members of staff who informed me that one of the reasons ticket prices on my route jumped by one of the highest increases in the country was due to the purchase of new trains.

The cab driver who was parked outside my house on Sunday morning at 5am and thought it was ok to hoover it out. Then the **** had the nerve to get annoyed when I, in a dressing gown, went outside to tell him where the hoover would be going if he didn't shut up.

Well, he is right.

The lease charges on new rolling stock are astronomical. They have to pay those charges somehow.

People who don't sit in the seats that they are numbered for, especially the cinema. Fair enough maybe if it's half empty, but if the Dark Knight Rises on opening weekend it might be a tad busy. We got to our seats before anything started and I said to the missus "I bet someone's in our seats" and they were. We asked them to move and the bird says "It's ok, we're supposed to be two seats along" and moved up.

Why the f'##k couldn't you just sit there in the first place? Headbanger

In certain people's defence there was no one showing people to seats like the normally do when it's packed, so when the film stopped 10 minutes in, a bloke spotty teenager came in to show someone to their seats and then discovered that no one was sitting in the correct seats, to which he then said "Oh great, so you've all nicked people's seats, was no one supervising this screen?"

We then had to remind the bloke that the film had stopped, as he didn't notice that the lights were up.

Ah there's two things that annoy me. Romford Vue and people coming into films about half hour in. What's the point?

Having to pay to get a cheap work trousers shortened. I have short legs 27 inches, but the smallest pants anywhere are 29 inches meaning I have to pay nearly half the price of the pants again just to get it to fit. I wouldn't mind but the bastards making the pants are all in some oriental country and the tallest geezers over there have shorter legs than me. Why don't they sell pants with legs shorter than 29 inches. :x

That'd be the fairy fluff mother ... probably.

Obese people generally, especially in this weather wheezing and sweating everywhere.

Groin strain, I can't shift it and it appears to be getting worse as I just went to run up the stairs and my leg almost gave way - I am getting old and everything is failing...
