Given that the police can't be everywhere and we don't live in Minority Report, I don't see how they could do anything more than they do to curb bad driving.

I've literally never seen them do anything to curb bad driving (good choice of words, though). I still don't understand why all the speed cameras in my area have been turned off. Speed cameras and red light cameras surely go some way to stopping people being berks.

It's just grating that every time you seem to hear about an accident it's always that the car had no insurance and wasn't registered and surely just posting a policeman with a database-checking camera and a motorbike to chase them down would be enough to actually start bring those kinds of morons in.

Maybe I'm just extra cynical because I'm currently stuck in an hour long jam thanks to some fuckwit outside Worcester.

People make genuine mistakes when driving all the time, be it missing a light change or being in the wrong lane. It'd be unreasonable to expect that to never happen.


When people make a mistake isn't the issue, it is how they deal with it that is the problem. For example if you find yourself in the wrong lane you don't just speed up and cut in, you indicate and wait for a sensible gap or until someone let's you in.

Yes?

That doesn't excuse the road rage from other drivers though. I was just giving an example of where someone can make a genuine mistake but by being in a vehicle lack the ability to deescalate others annoyance.

Mars' "The Sweet Stake £10,000" promotion website for the World Cup not working for the past month. What a strawberry floating shambles.

banana splits who press the elevator button that's already lot. Like, nobody cares you're getting off at 2, if it's already going there anyway.

Colleagues who call you when they're on holiday, don't leave a message or anything, and then have a go at you when you call them back because you've interrupted their holiday. :fp:

"Hi, how are you?"
"Well, I was relaxing here on the beach in Greece but you've just disturbed me, so I could be better"

Well strawberry float off with calling me while you're on the beach then FFS. :fp: If you're calling me I'm assuming you're working and willing to be contacted, especially if you don't leave me a message telling me what you want. I don't check up on everybody before returning their calls to see if they're on annual leave or not, you cretin. :x

So much about Tesco online I hate. Listing offers that expire at different times, whilst also keeping up offers that aren't relevant to your delivery slot or are "currently unavailable". No other supermarket I've used does this. Their incessant multibuys ("buy 6 get one free"; "4 for £6", "offer expires 2019"...I mean, WTF); delivery slots that are either insanely expensive or offer a vague and variable delivery time; slow, cumbersome website with a spinning circle straight out of a videogame loading screen; search engine which seems to try to sell you things you didn't ask for (type "muffins" and also end up with a long list of...cookies and crumpets?)

Sometimes boggles my mind how Tesco is still number 1.

Answer: buy a car and shop at Lidl.

It pisses me off how it just drops gooseberry fool that is out of stock if you edit even if the shop is happening for weeks so will probably be back in stock meaning you need to keep a list of dropped stuff to recheck and add before the cut off.

Traffic reporters on radio. Specifically the form of language they seem to be using these days, a typical item from a traffic report seems to be structured as follows:

"M5 junctions 14 to 16, got a broken down vehicle causing delays across both carriageways..."

It's that "got a" bit of the sentence that really annoys me! It's just a terrible abuse of the English language, just say "there is a" FFS! :x

Radio 2 traffic reports annoy me because they don't use the word "junction" when referring to motorways, they just use the numbers.
e.g. "On the M5, there's slow traffic southbound from 3 to 2."

It's almost as annoying as the furniture adverts that quote prices just using numbers:
e.g. "The lumpy-as-shit sofa is reduced to just three nine nine."

Yes! The use of just numbers annoys me as well. Another one is film trailers:

"Coming December 4!"

What the strawberry float does that mean? The fourth December? I'm pretty sure we've had more than four bloody December's by now - just say "4th of December" for goodness sake!

All of those things boil my piss.

As does the Car People ad with the bizarre purple furby-like thing - wtf is that all about?

That's an American thing.

I'll somethings write 5 December for quickness and cleanness, but I'll never swap that gooseberry fool around.

There is a kind of logic to it I suppose, in that the fact it's a given month is more "big" than the day, but then you might as well write, oh gooseberry fool, what year is it again? Oh yeah 2018 December 5.

Maybe Americans has trouble remembering what month it is.
