So, mr cyclist, you found out what happens when you run a red light at speed through one of the busiest pedestian crossings in central london - you end up on your arse with your wheels spinning. You also discovered that the pedestrians using the crossing at the time were not terribly sympathetic.

Hopefully you won't be doing that again but just as a reminder amber = slow down, not speed up.

Oh God, do not get me started on the stupidity of London cyclists.  Try riding a motorocycle in central London for one day, and you realise that the cars and the lorries are childs play compared to the eco-warrier, holier than thou, magic coat of invincibility imbeciles on bikes.

Dear X,

You have no idea how much I want to tell you to f*ck off right now....

I've just been reading back... could there be any possible irony in people posting on here, on this thread, about how much they don't like other people posting their random brain thoughts on facebook?

Dear snow.

No.

Just no already.

Ha Ha Mike - possibly...
but I'd probably join in with a 'things that annoy you thread' if it was on facebook, but there isn't much you can add to someone posting they have been in costas/are at Gatwick/have done 5 miles in the rain etc

In a sense, yes. I think the difference with this thread is that it has a specific focus, which is to rant in a closed-ish environment about things which politeness usually forbids. It isn't just a vague, rambling thing about what someone's had for lunch or what shampoo they used in the shower. 

Most people aren't going to find this thread, and that's the reason why people use it. Facebook is the opposite - you're sharing your posts with the entire world.

I was completely unaware that working 70 hour weeks in my previous job would ultimately end up defining me - or at least my perception of myself - and that adjusting to no longer working 70 hour weeks was going to be quite such heavy duty head fuckery.

I could say that, but no one wants/is able to hear it so I may as well chuck it in here.

That's what the Mundane Thread is for

Sanex cream shower gel, if you're asking.

OK, so you went to the Reading festival. That was August, why are you still wearing the wristband?

You may think you are some super clever engineer but e mailing me asking where the information is shows you are not super clever.

The file i attached has all the information you need so reading it will increase your understanding by 100%.  

.....and i can reply in an e mail without being rude unlike yourself.

Could someone please stop the emotional rollercoaster?  I'd quite like to get off now.

AND

Why do you insist on being such an A1, first class, prime adolescent playground style bitch?  You'd better watch yourself though, people are catching on to you..

It's nice that they made you smile, but you know, I really resent having been ripped off quite so badly to get you those flowers today.

To the guy in the supermarket this morning buying the £1 red rose and the bottle of mouth wash.

I don't think you will be needing the mouth wash

14/02/2013 at 18:18

If I was only half as good as you think you are, I'd still be brilliant.

No i don't want to put my religion, gender, ethnic origin, age or whether i have a disabilty on your application form. It's all politically correct nonsense.
