Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

"The event starts at 10am.please be there 15 minutes early."

Just say the fucking thing starts at 9.45! The guy giving me a lift wants to be there half an hour early to make sure he's fifteen minutes early.

Someone feel free to correct me if my age-addled brain is misremembering, but did there not use to be a fish and chip shop either part of or very close to the fish merket in Peterheid?

I have memories of getting the best ever fish from there, you didna dare ask for cod, haddock or anything specific or you’d get the 1000yard state, you got what had been landed that day (possibly unrecorded “black fish”) and it was the freshest fish I think I ever had.

It is or was pre Brexit Europe's largest fish market and would make sense for them to use whatever is landed to turn into a fish supper. Tbh there is no reason other than fashion to only use Haddock and Cod for fish suppers and doing so massively damages the fishing stock.

What with all this climate change fake noos and the like, it can only be a matter of time before the coasts of Caledonia are teeming with invasive species and Lionfish suppers will be all the rage..................

Surely they should be happy if people are ordering fish that that was caught earlier, because if it doesn't get eaten they'll have to throw it out and lose money?

The fish is only there to hide the heroin and coke.

If they did then folk would arrive at 9:30 and be 30 minutes early though. 
Which is what's happening to me because they've said to be 15 minutes early. Just say 10am and start the fucker regardless of who's pitched up.

I can tell I'm going to be stood there at 9.45 doing f**k all and asking the poor sod why I needed to be there early.

I like being early, it's stressful worrying if you're gonna be late. I usually tell my habitually late friends to meet half an hour before we actually have to meet knowing that means they might only be half an hour late. Just spend the time in between pissing about on P&B.

My BnB this week at work:

No en-suite toilet. I have to walk down the hall if I need a piss.

No shower available. I have to use the bath in my room.

Wifi doesn’t work in my room because of “thick walls.”

The host has spent the entire week burping really loudly.

Working from home isn't for everyone

I was once sent to a hotel up North on quite a big tariff. I'm sure I told the story on here. Guy opened the front door and said "It's X for tea, you're eating what we are eating" then walked away. :lol:

Always worth remembering that B&B guests are just as weird as the owners so it's probably jamama's fault

 

4 in a bed is a telly favourite. B&B owners are all demented.

Only 11 more days of milfy gym slags at the school gates.

Then gone forever.

Not sure if we should be reporting this to the authorities  :unsure:

I worked at the ISIS neutron source in Oxfordshire about 15 years ago. There was no space left at the on-site hostel so I was placed in a local "B&B". It was a house, occupied by an older couple. The room I got was their son's bedroom. He had moved out apparently, but all his stuff was there. It was the weirdest feeling, sleeping in someone else's bed surrounded by their childhood toys and trophies.  There was literally a box of action man figures at the foot of the bed. 

In the morning, the old man had a strict routine. The Telegraph and Radio 4, we men sat at the table at 7am sharp whilst his wife brought us breakfast. It was very, very strange.

My strangest BnB moment was when the host had a go at me for having breakfast (within her specified breakfast time) two hours before I intended to go out to work for the day. She said if she’d known I was staying she could have served me breakfast in my room fucking idiot. She realised she was in the wrong because when I got back from work she gave me a free jar of homemade jam.
