Why do people waiting to get on a train block the people trying to get off to make room for them

Why do people (and I mean mainly women here) think its ok when they have paid for something to stand at the counter sorting out their purse, handbag and whatever else takes their fancy.  YOU'VE PAID FOR YOUR GOODS NOW F-OFF AND LET OTHER PEOPLE PAY FOR THEIRS.

You forgot to mention the part where they wait until the cashier asks them for the money before they actually start to decide to look for their purse which is lost somewhere inside a massive bag.

God this is so true, it's as if having to pay is a suprise for most women.

I have a theory about this handbag business. I think its part of the reason that women take so SODDING LONG in public toilets.

Men - go in, unzip fly, piss, todger back in, zip, "perhaps" threaten hands with a splash of water and out.

Women, queue for hours, get into cubicle, search for half an hour for tampon, pulls down tights, pants, wee, (whilst checking Facebook) insert new tampon. Faff with putting the applicator in the bin without actually touching it, wrestle with tights, exit toilet after flushing, force way through massive queue still waiting to the sinks, wash hands as if preparing to conduct cardiac surgery, apply anti bacterial gel in case hand washing wasn't sufficient, search through tardis of bag for brush, lippy, powder compact, block every other poor cow who now wants to use a sink after touching tampon bin and then tut because queue is now LONGER than the bread queue in WWII.

Am I about right?

Why is it that when you have a scan at the clinic the gel they smear all over the sensor and the relevant bit of your anatomy is always so freezing cold?

I'm convinced that the nurses deliberately keep the stuff in the cryogenic cupboard, just for the laugh, a perk of the job.

At Christmas time, why does every child's toy/ game etc. requiring batteries always use fecking odd numbers of the things, when you can only buy batteries in even-number packs? Thus, you always end up having to buy two packs. Secret agreement between toy manufacturers and battery makers? I think so...

Why do people immediately think that the laws of physics and momentum cease to apply to them, the minute they get behind the wheel of an Audi. Or does the manual for the car actually say 'Safe braking distance at 70mph is 6 inches from the bumper of the car in front, although you should allow 8 inches in wet weather'?

LB - I always wash my hands after visiting the toilet, And I think that the waiting staff are trained to ask when your mouth is full because you can't say the food is bad then - after all, you're eating it, right?

OK, why is it that people keep bumping into me when there is lots and lots of room on the pavement, or wherever I am? You'd think I was invisible.

Maybe I am? :O

Why is it that places of work are supposedly trying to encourage people travelling by sustainable means, but provide no drying areas for wet clothing?

Why does it always rain on me?

Is it because I lied when I was 17?

Why is it that when there is a BIG EFF OFF sign saying ROAD CLOSED, do people still think that can't possibly apply to them?

Why is it that at parkrun, someone thinks that running among 400 people isn't dangerous enough with a pushchair. I have to have a dog on a lead too. You know who you are at Hove parkrun Mr...

Why is it that people can't read two simple instructions?

Why can't people learn to drive properly and safely? I'm not asking rocket science here but general basic driving. How to use indicators, safe distance from drivers in Front of you, that there exists 3 lanes on the motorway. There isn't just the middle lane

Why do people commenting on news stories on the internet, always think they know more than anyone involved in the case/story/etc?


Also why do trains always leave on time when you are running late?

Why do people risk their safety crossing the road when there's a pedestrian crossing 20 yards down the road?
