Someone in my street is having a party and has been for 12 hours.

They’re 5 doors away and I can hear his bird shrieking with laughter.

She can see your penis from there?

House names.

If it's a farm, some big stand alone mansion or B&B for business purposes, then fair enough, but a semi-detached or terraced house called 'Schiehallion' or something of that ilk?  Nah.  Not having it.

"Dunroamin"

f**k off you old c***s. 

ETA

My house has its original name painted above the door.  In fact all the house in the terrace do although it used to be called something else when it was built.

I presume this is because the houses were built before folk used numbers or some such.

Because it a yellow football shirt and you're 47.


I’ve taken your points on board, considered them and rejected them.

My ongoing research into late 40s male fashion trends tells me that I should endeavour to bring more colour into my wardrobe in the hope that its influences other auld c***s to ditch the constant blacks (racist!), dark blues, dark greens and greys.

I want the older generation to look like fucking CBeebies presenters.

Birthday celebrations/events. 

Aye very well done for surviving another year, congratulations. If you actually liked all these people you've invited to your birthday night out you'd see them more than once a fucking year. 

Spoiler

And no I wasn't invited

Missus' friend bought a detached cottage type house in Newton Mearns and created a name for it. if looking to decide on a venue for some get-together he offers up the name of his house as an option ie "why don't we meet up at Shang-ri-la* ?"

*can't remember the name he gave the place but the name in itself annoys me as much as the fact he named it in the first place.

My folks named the house I grew up in by Scottish-izing the view of the nearby (English) hill. They had a nameplate made from slate and put it up by the front door so it was the first thing anybody noticed on coming to the house. 

Utter cringe.

My Dad used to include it when giving his address and got annoyed when the rest of us didn't do the same. Worse, when they retired back to Scotland, they took the nameplate with them and put it up on the new house where it made even less sense.

On the subject of house names, my mate (surname: Pirrie) used to live in a house that was miles away from anywhere, essentially in the middle of a big park. Taxi drivers knew where to go when directed to Little House on the Pirrie.

oh how we laughed.

This annoys me no end.  My folks used to put every single bit of detail when writing out their address (and mine).  eg

Title. First Name, Surname

House name

House number

Street

Area of the City/Town

City/Town

Postcode

Blew my mothers tiny mind when i once sent here something and only put the house number and the postcode on the envelope and it arrived safely.

When you're having trouble with something electrical and the token diddy pipes up telling you to "just switch it off and on" and it actually works. Said token diddy then proceeds to big himself up as if he's some sort of genius telling stories about the amount of times "just turning it off and on" works. Fuming. Absolutely fuming.

Never worked for Steven Hawking.
