    Tea bags in pairs.. WHY!!!!!

    I’ve developed a technique whereby you reach into the tin (a Yorkshire Tea tin, obv) and as you pull out the two bags, the second one catches on the closing lid, tears off and drops back into the tin.
    Problem is you get the very occasional ripped bag (matron) and end up with tea-leaves everywhere… 👿

    At the moment? Perfume/aftershave adverts on telly. There seems to be at least 2 on in every ad break, yet despite their obviously huge budgets, they’re effectively all the same. The terminal lack of imagination is frankly staggering.

    That’s what I do nowadays anyway cos I’ve given up on this flavour-sapping pi55 water that we get darn sarf Tis the only way of getting a half-decent cuppa. Gggrrhrhrh.

    Although I only have in my posession an inferior metal PG tin.. I’m going to try this.

    Honestly, you tea people with your middle-class problems… 🙄 The filter machine at my local swanky cafe was broken this morning, so I had to put up with instant. Now THAT’s pain.

    I think they’re hilarious. They’re parodies aren’t they? They are taking the piss out of themselves though, right?

    Plastic coat hangers – too noisy to handle at 6am, virtually impossible to touch without them clattering against each other or something else.

    Plastic bags – rubbish in every respect.

    My kids early twenties nursery school teacher bending over with her leggings stretching to the point of semi transparancy at 8am in the morning. I mean in a good way – can I coin the phrase “two hard boiled eggs in a handkerchief”?

    People that walk slowly, then at the exact second you try to overtake them, they suddenly change direction and walk in front of you

    Kryton – teacher at my stepdaughters school used to that. Two loosely filled bags of porridge would have been a better description though.

    Mrs ADH leaves used tea bags on the saucer by the kettle, rather than putting them in the food recycling .075 meters to her left. Drives me insane.

    +1 on boardinbobs people walking slowly, aimlessly changing direction etc.

    And when coathangers get tangled up & you can’t get the thing you want off the rack, or if you are trying to put something away but can’t untangle the loose hangers….gaaahhhhh!

    People that put dishes in the sink then fill them or the entire sink with water to “let them steep” then never bother their arse going back to actually clean them. I had a flatmate that did this years ago and it drove me bonkers, now I have to endure it in work when people fill the sink with bowls and cups full of stagnant manky water

    People who sit in traffic at night for long periods of time on the footbrake not the handbrake. Drives me potty especially given how bright some brake lights on new cars are. Just inconsiderate. They must know they’re doing it cos when they look in their mirror my face is lit up like a Christmas tree!

    The thing is though loum, from her skin tone, she’s obviously Scottish. So while she’s looking ok there, its only a matter of time before the deep-fried pizza’s and stuff take their toll 😉

    BoardinBob – do you not have staff for this kind of thing?

    have you considered that some folk may check their rear view mirror, not to look at your festively appropriate face, but to check what’s happening on the road..?

    No, I make my own coffee. Wouldn’t trust them to do it. The state of our staff kitchen is disgusting

    Have you tried stopping further back from the car in front?

    Apparently, the wisdom being taught to learners these days is you should still be able to see the rear tyres and road underneath them when you stop behind another vehicle.

    Cougar – yep, normally stop a couple metres back so plenty. However, you could be sat 20m behind one of those new S-class mercs and still be dazzled.

    Yunki – If only they would check their mirror to see whats happening – they’d see an angry geordie behind them getting blinded on the road.

    they taught me this when I learned to drive 17 years ago – my instructor must have been ahead of his time.
