Rant thread


Recommended Posts

So why did you endure it? As an engineer, surely you understand the concept of the 'off' button? :tongue:

 

As to your opinion of the two 'phonies', I can only concur.

 

 Well...being an extremely old person, I do like a good moan. The show itself is actually rather good.

Positive rant. Why aren't there more shops like Wilkinsons. I popped in last week bought razor blades, batteries, de-icer, woodglue and some light bulbs in less than 5 mins. I was in then out. No one with trolleys of goods just hand baskets it blends the DIY centre with the supermarket with the car shop and probably a number of others. Common sense shopping experience in the high st and not housed in a grey metal and breezeblock warehouse in some outskirts car park wilderness.

After my last visit to Wilkinson's I am now banned by Mrs Moose from shopping there unless accompanied by a responsible adult. I'd nipped in for some batteries and thirty minutes later, feeling rather pleased with myself came out of the store clutching not only the batteries but a ball of garden twine, a packet of broad beans seeds, (I hate broad beans) a tin of paint and, what I thought was a very reasonably priced set of stepladders. Mrs Moose was not impressed!

You're in plenty of good company here, both young and old alike.  :D

It's a forum frequented by rugby league supporters; it would be daft to expect anything else. :P

When I went to the England v Australia match at the Olympic stadium, because of train cancellations, and replacement buses mysteriously disappearing it took me 4.5 hours to get from Stratford to Hastings. The following day I put a Delay Repay form in, but only today did I get a reply, saying they will begin to look into it. Aren't Southern Rail already in enough trouble without P***ing off paying passengers even more? Just Repay my damn fare, and forget about it, like you do with everyone else, as long as you get the franchise fees, you make a profit.

This is the essence of Wilkinsons it appeals to those who say "I can do" rather than "I'll get a man in to do".  But most of the things you buy there will go completely unnoticed by women even if you stored them on the coffee table, you can continue with your guilty pleasure with complete security.  And it allows you to purchase many of the things you need from Boots but without all the nonsense.

If you book with and travel with Virgin West Coast they process the Delay Repay automatically and put the money straight back into your bank within 7 days without you having to do a thing yourself.

People posting on Facebook, 2 things.

 

1) Posting photos showing them having "fun". What denotes fun and is it really fun walking in the rain with a dog covered in mud?

 

2) Posting pictures of food. It'll go cold whilst you're pratting around taking a picture plus I don't care about what you are eatingas much as you care about what I am having. And if you put "nom nom nom" on it I will find you, I pray I will find you....................

Its what we're good at...

That's the trouble, people think they are good at moaning but their not.

Good moaning takes ages to learn.

When I was young I was taught moaning by people who really could do it. Todays moaners are only playong at it. Their not fit to lace the boots of the old school.

Proper moaning that was

People who get on the quiet coach of the Intercity train then walk up and down the carriage on their phone deserve to be permanently banned from having technology products.

InterCity? Where have you come from, 1990? :unsure:

Hey! Respect your elders! I was using inter-city trains in the seventies.

 

Those bloody sandwiches are still repeating on me. ;)

So was I. I remember them with fondness as a trip on an InterCity train always ment traveling to an exotic location or holiday of some kind.

The train is from the 1980s, never mind 1990.

 

 

This is the age of the train.... whooosh

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

If it was a HST then it dates from the 1970s (first introduced into service in 1975).

Original train stock on the Greater Anglia line, the franchise owners have never had the "incentive" to buy in new ones like other rail lines, the ones we have are still the lean out the window to open ones.  Abellio promised to do so but they take many years to get here apparently.
