Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

I just spent my lunch time listening to people ranting like f**k about airport staff going on strike and how selfish they were cos people want to go on holidays. These are people who VERY recently benefitted financially, by a very large number thanks to the work of a union.

This despite no one at the table knowing what the dispute was about (myself included).

Selfish, selfish wankers.

Those bogs that don't have a plug, just a light sensitive thing that you wave your hand over.

I'm not exactly svelte and when I'm sitting on one they keep flushing because my shadow causes the light sensor to make the bog flush. This is especially annoying when one is trying to wipe one's chocolate starfish.

Not being able to buy alcohol in Scotland between 10pm-10am is a joke and the law should be changed immediately.

Its strange how you can see pished jaikies at any time of the day but respectable folk cannot enjoy a small tipple on a hot sunny day.

I’m not as bothered about stopping selling it at 10pm for a few hours but what’s the point in having to wait til 10 am to buy it in the morning?

It’s to allow kids in Greenock to get into school sober.

'Hot sunny days' generally occur between the hours of 10am and 10pm in Scotland.

Kids in Greenock don't go to school. Unless it's when they break in at night.

Lots of people do their shopping and early and it’s a good time to stock up on booze when the shops are quiet. I wanted to buy a crate of beer and a few bottles of wine for my visit to my parents who don’t live anywhere near a big supermarket yesterday and it hit home what a stupid law it was. Almost as stupid as being told you can’t have a beer at the football because of a few idiots actions back in 1980.

Stratfords Bar in Gorgie opens at 6am throbbs. Good crowd in there pre-9am.

We like going for our food shopping early on a Saturday or Sunday and it’s frustrating not to be able to buy alcohol at the same time.

That said it’s a minor inconvenience and there are bigger social issue that take priority.

Four wood pigeons seem to have taken up residence in the garden. When they're not eating plants or trying to hump or fight each other they are shitting all over the place. Ever seen the size of a wood pigeon shite? Size of a dachshund. Not a dachshund's shit, an actual dachshund. Vermin.

One of those kites that look like a hawk should get rid of them.

Or watching old Road Runner cartoons might give you some ideas..

Are you enjoying your 4am alarm calls as well? For some weird reason, the ones that torment me seem to enjoy crapping all over my food waste bin.

They used to have a wee plastic owl too. 

The owl at Forfar is depicted sitting on a log and looks like it came from the nearest garden centre...

They've given the early alarm calls to a bloody owl. They crap on the all the bins though. It's like there's a target only wood pigeons can see. Usually splattered dead centre. Their latest 'trick' is to perch on the ledge at the garage and shit their load. Try getting in there without squelching in their crap.

It's to annoy Throbber, who has to clean off the mess before he goes delving inside.

The old PA boy at East End would just shoot them with an air rifle.
