Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

BBC sport coverage and channel switching.

In the last 10 minutes I’ve had to go from red button, to BBC1 to BBC2 to carry on watching the same tennis match.

I wondered about this yesterday when the first few games of the Murray / Isner match were only available on iPlayer.

WTF is going on at the BBC ? They seem to be doing a first class job of giving Johnson & Dorries every excuse to mete out a savaging.

Whenever there's traditional Scottish music on (usually at a ceilidh or wedding) and folk give that horrendous 'heeyeuch!' noise. Awful.

I tried to use that word in Scrabble. 19 points. And it was on a triple word square.

Guy I work with keeps referring to Frasier as 'Fraser'.

He's been told before, but perseveres with saying Fraser, probably in the knowledge that it annoys others.  He's succeeding on that front anyway.

Where do you work that you're all watching American sitcoms enough that this keeps coming up?

There's an episode of Frasier with Bob Hoskins, and he struggles with "Fray-zee-er" throughout.

Am I the only individual on P&B that doesn't own a microwave? 

They are a bit like the newly invented Rangers. *

I just don't trust the c***s. 

 

*The older version weren't any better

I've not had a microwave for about 15 years

This reminds me of a PTTGOYN from my time in Hong Kong - the microwave was above the fridge and a cabinet and thus way too high - you pretty much had to stand on a stool to get food out or risk spilling it on your head.

Too many vowels and other low scoring letters.

Do you still get folk called Fraser? 

I've got two pals called Fraser, both ancient like me. 

I went to school with a Frazer

I don't remember any Frasers, a Ewen, a Sinclair, a Stuart, can't think of anybody else with a mildly exotic name.
