    two for me:

    1) aldi coffee packets – it says use the adhesive tab to reseal. But the ‘adhesive tab’ doesnt peel off very easily, and when you can peel it off it leaves all the adhesive on the packet and not on the back of the tab!

    2) shower heads with several spray settings. Does anyone actually get a shower with the ‘jet wash’ type spray pattern that just comes from the centre nozzles???

    I don’t know how the glue on sellotape knows to stick to one side of the the tape but not the other

    I also don’t know how the pheasant outside our house knows the time – he turns up at 11am on the dot at the window and expects us to give him peanuts. When the clocks changed a few weeks back – he still turned up at 11am.

    Why did Bungle from Rainbow go naked during the day but put pyjamas on to go to bed?

    Maybe the glue that doesn’t learn gets used for double sided tape?

    Women in supermarkets at the fruit isle need to pick up every bit of fruit , examine it, x ray it with their eyes then reject it.

    women in shops who get out a pile of cards to pay a small bill,then hand each one over and most get refused all while chanting out the pin number.

    Just one of a whole swathe of Bungle Mysteries. People keep pretty tight lipped about the pretty extensive plastic surgery between series 1 and 2

    Series 1 Bungle

    Series 2 Bungle – and an explanation about why he doesn’t wear clothes in the daytime maybe

    Series 1 Bungle looks like he was on meth!
    Series 2 Bungle looks more relaxed and a bit chubbier. Obviously due to the spliff in his mouth

    I had a packet of Maltesers the other day with a reseal tab on. Yeah right.

    Estate agents having “open house” events, but stipulating that booking an appointment is essential. Winds me up no end.

    Why don’t all toilet doors open outwards, so that us who wash our hands can use our foot instead and avoid the dirty mingers..?

    Why the UK persists in using seperate taps for hot and cold water when the rest if the world realised long ago that mixer taps are better?

    Try washing your nob after a dirty evening when her water comes out a 3 million degrees – you’ll pray for a mixer tap.

    Why do I sometimes get two streams when there’s only one outlet?

    Then fit those hoops to the bottom so you can open the door with your foot!
    No good putting posters everywhere about germs and washing hands if 50% don’t and then you place your hand on the handle in the same place…..

    They save up coupons from the Sun and buy cheap package holidays

    …because they heard the place was crawling with British pricks all year round?

    There’s an App for that – actually there’s a few dozen.

    Download one, Put all your expenditure in, however small for a month – and you might be surprised – I don’t think anyone ever does it and says to themselves afterwards “love a duck, seems I’ve been paying £600 a month to British Gas for a flat I left 4 years ago, better fix that” it’s usually ‘death by a thousand cuts’ I used to work in a city centre, I ate lunch out every day, nothing expensive, Boot mealdeal or a Roll and a bag of crisps from this Café, maybe £4 – cheap eating, oh and a Coffee on the way into the office – worked out, between than at the odd ‘little thing’ I bought whilst I was there it was costing me more than £200 a month.

    Started to bring my lunch in everyday and used the free office coffee machine and genuinely was a little bit wealthier every month.

    When I asked for information about myself I am refused due to data protection ?

    When I asked for information about myself I am refused due to data protection ?

    What information were you after?

    Generally, “Data Protection” is thrown about as a catch-all reason in the same way “Health and Safety” is.

    No organisation can hold information about you without letting you access it (police and intelligence services aside) – but that doesn’t mean they can just spill the beans to whoever calls up claiming to be you.

    Banks often cite “Data Protection” if you ask why they declined to offer someone a loan or such, it’s a total lie – the truth is that underwriting criteria is a hugely secretive business and they don’t want their competition to know their internal rules/systems – you can apply for them to show all the data they hold on you, but it’s unlikely it will reveal anything earth shattering.

    It was a dark and stormy night. I was sat at home watching the telly wondering:
    a. do I still need to turn the TV off in case lightning hits the aerial?
    b. did I ever have to turn the TV off in case lightning hit the aerial, or was that bullpoo just to get us to turn the TV off?

    (But it didn’t bug me for long as I just Googled it.)

    that bloke in the video is just plain wrong about the taps in bathrooms. Most older houses did not – I believe – originally have mains supply to the cold taps. He might have an argument for the kitchen where you would usually have have high pressure mains cold and gravity fed hot, but I think I’ve seen more mixers in kitchens with that situation – usually with the mixing occurring at nozzle end.

    Think its just history and habit.

    Listen again. He agrees with you.

    He says at 1:15 “The cold meanwhile, at least certainly in the kitchen and sometimes the bathroom too, the cold water comes straight from the mains.”

    Growing up we had a cold water storage tank in the attic and my parents always told me that I should never drink the water (hot or cold) from the bathroom taps, only ever from the cold kitchen tap.

    I still don’t like drinking from the bathroom taps, even though I know for a fact that the cold is mains fed in my house.

    The tank eventually got removed and my dad turned into an interesting interpretation of a fish pond in the back garden. #ghettob4twascool 😀

    My next door neighours chimney got hit by lightning a couple of years ago, destroyed every electrical item in their house that was plugged in at the time. The only damage to mine was the fuse in my coffee machine popped and the power supply to my router failed.

    How come the Photos app on OS X won’t let me copy’n’paste into a document, but will let me do it into an empty folder, then into a document?

    I thought it was only me! I even plumbed in the bathroom, but filling a glass there .. it just feels somehow wrong….

    Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets? 😕
