People who wear body warmers with a t-shirt. Why? I genuinely don't understand why people do this. It's like putting the heating on then opening the windows!

Also noticed the amount of men who wear shoes without socks. It doesn't make you cool or hip you look like a twat!

If we are talking about mixed messages I nominate workmen with high visibility jackets and camouflage trousers.

People that never want to contribute to sponsoring somebody for a Marathon, bike ride etc etc when its for a good cause........until a relative of theirs dies of cancer, then all of a sudden, there's sponsorship forms all over the place encouraging everyone "to dig deep". Short memories. :thdn:

I get i cold with nothing on, but to hot with a full jacket. The body warmer, normally a thin one let's my arms keep me cool.
It's like when in bed and I leave a bit of leg or foot out from under the duvet to reach optimum temp.

The phrase 'just saying'.

I don't understand what it's supposed to mean. Admittedly, nobody of my age group or above should use it anyway, but I'd still like to know.

Having the house to myself for a few hours and World of Tanks is updating, I'll probably get one game in before the missus comes home and kicks me off the TV cos I've "been playing that silly game all afternoon".......

I think it must just be spicy stuff. I had a chilli sauce with some plane chicken and a pita bread (or something) and I feel much better today. Still not completely gone but I think we're onto something :)

In my experience, it's a truncation of "I'm just saying what everyone else is thinking" and is generally used by educationally sub-normal f***-nuggets when they want to say something racist / sexist or otherwise outrageous and want to pretend that everyone else agrees with them but doesn't dare to say it out loud.

Ah, I see, thanks. Nice to know I haven't been missing anything.
