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

Seen that today NR. An old bat pushing a trolley right in the middle of a dual carriageway in LIVERPOOL less than 20 yards from a pedestrian crossing. I told myself she must be either suffering from dementia or be terminally stupid because she could've easily been mown down.

I can't stand drivers who don't either give you a wee wave of acknowledgement or flash hazards etc. when you let them in, or clearly stop on a narrow road to let them past etc.  Soooooooooooo rude.  Or people who don't say thanks when you hold a door open.  Grrrrrr   I was brought up to say 'thank-you', and so should everyone else have been!  I'll get off my high-horse now

I drive 10 minutes to work every day and go through 6 sets of traffic lights, I amuse myself by watching other drivers, and at almost every light, if the person sitting next to me is female under the age of 50 she is usually texting and will miss the light change

Why do people join the site and ask for training advice 3 minutes (possibly exagerated to make point) before their first 5k/10k/HM... ?

And then they are normally wanting to turn right into the next road and it's really congested so you end up stuck in more traffic. It should be illegal for people to make turns like that!

Drivers who don't acknowledge me either get the universal sign for w*nker... or I mouth THANK YOU out of the window and they get a slow clap

Why is it that taxi drivers are allowed to even be ON the road?

06/09/2012 at 10:51

Because it'd make the pavements far too dangerous.

Why is it that shops don't seem to answer the phone anymore if you call them?

Ok I know this is trivial, but why do some people open a window on a train then sit upwind of the draft. Last night some fat sweaty git got on opened the window just in front of me then sat futher passed the open window. I get full blast of the air and they get a nothing, twat.  I know it was warm last night but I didn't want the draft or the extra noise thanks.

on the positive side if the guy had sat downwind, between you and the window you might have had an unpleasant smell to deal with. he was doing you a favour.

Lee, I used to flash and wave at other drivers all the time, until the police told me to stop and put my trousers back on !!
