I'll start because this is one of life's great mysteries to me.....

Why is it that the waitress comes over to you to ask you if you're food is alright the SECOND you've just spooned a mahoosive gobful in, so you can't actually answer her question without being rude or spitting food everywhere? How do they time that so well?

Why do vans park in the middle of the road when they can pull into a space 5 metres further? I gestered this to a driver this morning. I'm picking up a spacker he gestered back. But surely the spacker could be wheeled a few metres further!!

Why does the phone only ring when you can't answer it?

Why when you are stuck in a traffic jam and can't move a centimetre in any direction does a driver behind have to start tooting furiously?

Yes Cake, and when you have worked on that bloody programme and they shrink your credit so small that no one can read it!!

why is it, that when you're riding down a quiet narrow country lane, the only frigging oncoming vehicle you meet will be on a blind bend??

Why do people stand still in traffic when they can still move 5mm. So tooting annoying!!

Why is it that the day you want to leave early from work - every single disaster and emergency rears its ugly head?

Why does it piss down with rain the moment I leave the house for a run, and stop raining the moment I get back?

Having just rung Sky Talk technical help centre - who gave Tony a job at the Sky Talk technical help centre? And why? Is it some kind of sick joke?

Why is everything covered in peas and mint at Jamie's Italian?

Why is it that I check the weather forecast from the internet rather than look outside in the sky...Is it going to rain in two hours.... This site says yes, must find one that says no and once I find one, I can then feel relieved and go for a run.

Then it starts raining. But by then it doesnt matter.

So whats the point in even checking the weather??

Why is tin foil shiny on one side and dull on the other and which side should face outwards when I make my hat?

Is that two questions? Am I allowed more than one?
29/08/2012 at 23:14

Use either side, it's just the way foil is made by pressing it through rollers!  Do you prefer a shiny or matt hat?

Ah the rollers....

I'm not bothered what the hat looks like, I just wondered which way shields the mind control beams the best.

whne clients need everything done yesterday NOW NOW NOW. but dont pay you until the end of the week/month/quarter.

TimR. Shiney on the outside to reflect the beams. If you put the shiny side on the inside your brain will overheat and explode.
