Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

Letter in today's Guardian from Dr Hillary Perraton, author of "A history of foreign students in Britain".

The Doctor was trying to make a valid point about the racism of unmarked graves for African and Indian soldiers but spoiled it with this sentence "the war memorial for the siege of Mafeking has, alongside the names of British soldiers, one plaque commemorating with no names 'The Black Watch'...".

I was slightly annoyed that the Doctor had mistaken the famous Scottish regiment for an African native regiment! The letters page tomorrow could be interesting.

Don't fucking tell him about the Tartan Army.

I’m watching a biography of songwriters and they’re interviewing Noel Gallagher who says he’s last of a dying breed of musicians who are album perfectionists. Mate I’ve listened to your albums shut the f**k up.

Are you one of those people that despise Oasis and that?

I used to be a wee snob about Oasis aye but no anymore. Think their first two albums are class, Noel’s solo stuff is broadly alright and Liam just generally seems like a good c**t these days.

Oasis have a decent collection of very good songs but the whole britpop culture/fashion thing is one the worst personality types on the go imo.

People saying "night" when logging off their shift at 4.30 pm. 

Probably related to people that say "mum" or "dad" rather than "my mum" or "my dad". 

always used to do my head in in the office that one.

been working all day, sunny day out side raring to go and to hear "Good night" as if it's the end of the day because works over.

Oasis at the Barrowlands was on Sky Arts last night. Liam was the sweatiest one on stage despite spending the whole time stood still snarling at the mic.

I'm in favour of a large number of them being buried in unmarked graves tbh.

Football players being described as "ballers". I saw it on a social media thing recently and just about threw my computer out of the window. American sport pish.

Clearly he never saw action in the Falklands.

I like how you can go to Manchester and easily 50% of the guys over 30 still look like a gallagher

@Sweet Pete aside, tradesmen and their ilk being unable to reply to a text, voicemail, or email.

Nice to know I'm in the elite.

What are you needing now? Or is it more sex dungeon / "garage" stuff?

Aye it’s still the dungeon. Cannot get anyone to reply, even to say “no, too busy”.

To be fair to the construction industry generally, I've told you why that is. It's an over engineered nightmare of a job. Buy a big pre fab shed and call it a day.

Well they can fucking reply with a “we can’t do that but we could deliver a Wendy house” and I’d consider it.

Again, just to further confirm my elite builder credentials, I did just that on day 1.

I'll give G a wee chase and see what he thinks.
