I think banks are getting very lazy at there cueing system. I was told at HSBC by the woman behind the counter that I shouldn't use this system to put money into my account and use one of the machines, she was so rude and made me feel I shouldn't bank there, so I phoned up and made a complaint.

I hate queuing at the post office as you seem to having to wait for ages. I think shops like Asda have got a good system they open all there tills if the queues get longer than 3 or 4 people, but I always say to my wife you know which one to queue up in as some can be faster than others ( If you are a reguar, which we are )

Mark - it's "queue", not "cue", and "queuing" not "cueing".

Just thought I'd help you out!

Holding doors open for older people, but being called every name they can think of when I can't do it, because I'm loaded down with bags and the door slips shut <even tho I'm trying to hold it open for them with my foot>

No Ella - Mark was correct - your local branch obviously hasn't got round to installing a snooker table yet! Laughing

LITTER. How can you change peoples' mindsets? We have a school at the back of our house and despite contacts with the headmaster, we suffer an inordinate amount of litter in the park opposite and the local surroundings despite plenty of litter bins (mostly generated by the school pupils). I feel like the grumpy old woman, but what is the answer?? Sad

Idiots who drive with their foglights on when there clearly isn't any fog, and no, a rainy day doesn't count! They can look forward to a dose of full beams.

We live 1/4 mile from a supermarket. The main litter that gets snagged up in our front drive is their plastic bags and receipts.

Let's get back to brown paper bags!

I notice they now use plastic bags in USA.

Reusable bags are the answer. Put a tax on plastic bags like they do in Ireland and elsewhere. In fact packaging is one of the few sensible things to tax.

How long have you got?

When I was 18, someone said of me, to my face, that I was cynical for my age. Forty years on, not much has changed!

We do use our Tesco/Asda/Somerfield plastic bags again, in the swingy bin thing under the kitchen sink, it's only little (~10 ltr) and our house gets through 2 or 3 a day. Nice big council wheelie bin out the back.

We use the heavier re-usable bags for the milk (when I con remember) and the normal bags for the other groceries. the thin bags, like John, get used for household waste into the wheelie bin, usually 1 per day

People answering mobile phones in the street. It suddenly makes them stop walking in a strainght line and they bloody bob around in circles on the pavement in front of me. It's generally men also, putting some truth to the myth that men can only do one thing at a time!


Whilst we're on mobiles, why do young pillocks insist on going through every ringtone in my works canteen!! If I wanted a high whining noise in my ear I'd talk to jade Goody!!.......On second thoughts, no i wouldn't!!!

Women who already have all the jobshare benefits and limited hours and job-sharing who still expect me to work unpaid overtime so that they can take time off to care for their kids because their husband can't because he has got an important job that he can't get away from............
AND withn their combined income of 50,000 they are still entitled to tax credits, while I pay 40 per cent to keep them in the style to which they have become accustomed ........GRRRRRRRRR Evil or Very Mad

Was this the story, Rachel? I read the on-line version of the Gazette each week.... and buy it occasionally.

That's the very one Cherskiy.. Smile

the line "Now it is also looking to put bins up next to known chewing gum blackspots" had me in stitches.................

I'd not thought of looking on line for local rags, this could save my mum 56p a week. Smile

A couple of times recently I have been in restaurants where people at the next table have (very thoughtfully) hooked their arm over the back of their chair to make sure that their filthy habit does not impair the enjoyment of their table companions, but just about ruins the evening for the occupants of the neighbouring table. Cue large bottle of water (sin or con gas) for the offending item and item holder.

I hate the dirty b@st@rd "new man" who thinks it acceptable to change his baby's nappy in a pub when I'm trying to get pleasantly pi$$ed.
He's bound to be moaning about people smoking near his little darling as well. The answer is simple - KIDS DON'T BELONG IN PUBS

I'm as interested in current affairs as I've always been. It's the tabloid press who've managed (with great success) to turn people's attention away from the important stuff in favour of this whole "celebrity" thing. I refuse to let them - and so does Mr. S.

People who have no interest in how their society is run are either lazy or stupid!

What makes me fed up? "Stupid people" - and boy are there lots of them about!

Agree E.S. It's that I remember my parents and thier friends actually talking about the Government and social issues of the day. How often do you hear that as chit chat now?
