What have you been "told off for" lately?
Swearing at 2 drivers who pulled out on me on sunday. 1st a lady who said the bloke behind me had flashed her out so she was in the right. 2nd a meathead who just wanted a fight (he did a u-turn and went about a mile out of his way to offer me one)
Can’t comment on yours but people with noisy headphones on the train annoy me.Posted 3 years agoHughStewMember
Told off by wife for eating a whole bar of fruit and nut (over the course of 3 days) and not giving her any. She was at work the first 2 attacks at the bar, and the last 4 squares of the bar were my breakfast at 4:30 am.Posted 3 years ago
I bought 5 new bars and hid them about the place for her to discover. It was hot this weekend so cue new telling off for covering various household items with gooey, melty chocolate.dazhSubscriber
Told off by Mrs Daz this morning for swearing in front of the kids when I realised I had a puncture on my commuter bike just as I was about to leave. Then told off again for swearing some more when I couldn’t get the tyre off with a single tyre lever, followed by another scolding for swearing when I couldn’t find another tyre lever. Not a good morning 👿Posted 3 years agonbtMemberemszMember

My floor is not an extra storage space for clothes and plates
Crystal castles is not relaxing music
20 mins is apparently too long in the shower
Trying to work out the tab for jigsaw falling into place while for football is on is not allowedjekkylMember
I made a mess in the kitchen after she had spent over an hour cleaning it apparently. This was said to me just as we were finishing a roast dinner I’d made with all the trimmings. That’d be the reason for the mess then. She wasn’t pleased with my reply ‘well you didn’t do a very good job, look at all these dirty pots’ there’s gratitude lol.Posted 3 years agobikebouyMember
I’ve just booked a bloody expensive holiday in the Doli’s for us two, nice relaxed drive over with a stay in swanky hotel in Eperney (Champers region) then meander over the Alps into Garda and onto Como, swanky hotel stay for 8 nights, return for a double stay over in the Vosages region before Eurostar back..
MrsBouy moaned at me cos’ shes got nothing to wear..

The dining room table is not an appropriate place to store the frame I’m rebuilding.
Hanging bits of bike from coathangers whilst the paint dries is also not good, especially when the pointy bits are at eye level.
My brewing kit should not leak on the kitchen floor.
It is not appropriate to blame someone else when I lose something I’ve misplaced in my shed.Posted 3 years ago
Since I have nothing to contribute to the “manly” thread..but in the same vein
I was told off, quite politely, by a woman on the train today for having my headphones too loud.
Thing is I’ve just done a test with people at work and they couldn’t hear a thing…Posted 3 years agoAlexSubscriber
It’s not really telling off, it’s that look that says ‘I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed’ when the postman staggers under the weight of ‘the shiny’. The kids tell me off for being childish which is a bit of a mind bender, people at work occasionally tell me off because the excuse ‘I’m a northerner, this is how we speak’ isn’t mitigation for a lack of empathy and my dog tells me off every hour between 3pm and 6pm that it’s WAY past time for his dinner.
I’m at an age now where I just nod and smile 😉Posted 3 years agoMarkBrewerMember
Most recently swapping 2 of the keys around on somebody’s computer at work. It turned out that one of them was a key she used for her password so ended up locked out of her computer for a while after too many incorrect attempts 😆
Dirt from my bike on the hall floor 🙄
And riding on a footpath
After reading about it so many times on here over the years I actually remembered to use the “I know silly isn’t it” line! And this is how I felt whilst delivering it 😆

😆 That picture gets me every time, mainly as it looks just like my sisters youngest boy when he was little.
Anyway I got called (well shouted from the open window of a passing car) a F*c*ing W*n*er yesterday, I was doing 30 in a 30 zone that is well known for spot speed checks. Bloke was probably doing easily 50 into a blind corner!!Posted 3 years ago
