Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Minstrels used to be All-Chocolate Treets, and Peanut M&Ms were Peanut Treets.

When they changed the name, Viz printed a spoof article claiming that Jimmy Hill was unhappy as the new ones didn't taste the same. The heading was HILL'S TREET BLUES.

Treets made a fleeting come back about 3-4 years back in Sainsburys. Top notch sweetage.

Normal Walkers Cheese & Onion are in a blue packet, yet their Squares are green.

That would be because they bought Square Crisps from Smith's Crisps so most likely wanted to keep the branding

EDIT : I know they're yellow and green but you get the picture

Thanks for the insight.

Smiths had Salt 'n' Shake too.

People that walk horses through towns and they just leave massive mounds of shite everywhere, they should have to return later and clean it up instead of just leaving it.

I'm with you on that one. At least if the horses shit it's good for the roses.

These feckin things almost killed me many moons ago.

Sharp edged when crunched and it got wedged in my throat.

Vague memories of being 'battered' on the back, then held upside down whilst still being battered until it came adrift.

Never new there was a 'gay' reference? 

Especially now I've already typed 'wedged in my throat'

:unsure:

Which town? My rhubarb is needing some loving treatment. 

When there were milk horses in Edinburgh folk used to scoop up the horseshit for their gardens.

Nothing worse than having a big gay sweetie stuck in your throat.

As part of a process for a new job they require a 5 year background history, this has all been smooth apart from trying to get Universal Credit to send proof of a previous claim that I've had. Passed from call centre to call centre. Follow the government.uk website and they say UC should send out a letter upon request. 2 weeks later someone phones me today and says I need to travel in to get the proof, tell them that's not the case and I live in a rural location to which they started disputing this. 10 minutes later someone phones me and says they can send it out. I've spoken to about 8 people before someone actually followed their process.
