Eejits who park their car, go into the shop, pay for their car wash, come out, go to their car, drive it to the car wash queue and then complain when sensible people who have done the sensible thing are ahead of them in the queue, as if it's not their own fault.

Again Ziggy you are correct, yes the internet was used for the military and univerities.

IBM started email.

Tim Berners-Lee brought the world wide web to what it is today, but again the Americans started this technology.

Its like the person who invented sliced bread compared to the person who invented bread.

Add this to the fact that I travel to the Dubs games with a large gang of lads who like to leave the pub 15 mins before the game with a 10-15 minute walk to the stadium. I do be a nervous f**king wreck!

I'm sure Nicky Brennan appreciates my concerns  ;)

I am time obsessed.  I need a precise time for everything! If you say you're coming over to me I don't want to hear "after", "in a while" I want to know the time! and if you say "in a hour" I expect you to be here 60 minutes from now otherwise you are late!

Quinns in Drumcondra grinds my gears, or more importantly the fools who have to go to it every match day in Croker >:(

It seems that for every single Louth game in Croker when the lads come up from  the club there is only one pub they can go to...
It is fu%^ing carnage in there yet the boys insist on going there. You may as well stamp on their forehead "Up for the Day" as they file in. I wouldn't mind, but the worst culprits are the ones who should no better (ie they used to actually live on Dorset st in college years)

Post by: Lone Shark on June 20, 2007, 03:53:21 AM
Giving out about the yungwan could turn this into a longer thread, but it's where gears get ground....

(1) She decides every so often that she wants to go to a match. I'm largely indifferent as to whether she travels along or not - it's not like we'll be nipping out at HT to relieve the tension or anything - so I don't encourage it, merely offer. When she does decide to go, she thinks it's some sort of favour to me, and in return for this supposed favour, refuses to leave "early" i.e. any time other than how long it would take to travel to the ground if there were no traffic, no queues at the turnstiles and it was midnight. The game is throwing in in Tullamore at 3pm (20 mins away at 3am on a Saturday night) and if I want to leave at any time before 2.35 I get a barrage of moaning about how is it not good enough that she's going without having to sit in the cold for fifteen minutes. (I'm aware of the mathematical incongruity....) Suggesting that she doesn't have to go gets met with the inevitable carnage that is "so you don't want to spend time with me??" extravaganza.

I wouldn't mind but for last years minor final replay in Ennis we left with loads of time to spare (after I spent a full day warning her of the likely traffic chaos), got trapped in the mire around Gort and ended up missing the first twenty minutes. So she duly had a conniption and couldn't understand why (a) I didn't "make" her leave earlier and (b) I didn't know a magic short cut unknown to the other 10,000 motorists all going the same way.

......phew......

(2) You're going to the shop for a small errand. Ask if she wants anything, and get met with the horror answer - "A surprise!". Now what was a five minute trip to Spar to pick up a paper has become an ordeal, as you go through their entire stock trying to pick out something semi-meaningful/thoughtful that won't get you in trouble. Apparantly they don't mean it literally either - as I found out when I brought back what I thought was a quite surprising litre of engine oil. (I wish I was making that up.......  :-[)

(3) Like the above, but instead of surprise, insert "something nice". But not any of the things she normally likes, because she doesn't feel like them today. Or anything that she told you two years ago that she wasn't gone on.

(4) Travelling in the car while she has a hangover, spending the whole trip moaning "are we there yet" and how it's taking so long, but then having a conniption if you try to overtake anything.

(5) Deciding that she wants to stay in on Saturday night so as to be able to study the next day, expecting you to do the same to keep her company, then spending the whole night complaining about how everyone on the whole planet is out but her, and then spending all that time the next day that she was supposed to be studying on the phone to all her friends talking about what happened.

(6) Saying how she'd love to understand more about politics/current affairs/world events, but every time there's a good documentary or episode of Prime Time or Newsnight on, complaining how her "head's not able for that now" and wanting to turn over to soaps or some such.


I could go on. But I won't. This has all been rather cathartic actually.  :)



Title: Vatican issues papal bull on driving manners
Post by: Fiodoir Ard Mhacha on June 20, 2007, 09:14:35 AM
The Vatican has issued a set of "10 commandments" for motorists to promote safer driving.

The "Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road" call on drivers to respect speed limits, refrain from drinking before driving and avoid cursing.

Catholics are also urged to make the sign of the cross before setting off on a journey.

This is said to be the first time the Vatican has specifically dealt with the growing worldwide problem of road rage.

The 36-page document was put together by the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Migrants and Itinerant People.

"Thou shalt not drive and drink", "thou shalt not make rude gestures behind the steering wheel" and "help accident victims" are among the 10 recommendations for motorists.

The document also warns that driving can bring out "primitive" behaviour in motorists, including "cursing, blasphemy, loss of sense of responsibility".

It says that automobiles can be "an occasion of sin" - particularly when they are used for dangerous overtaking or for prostitution.

Cardinal Renato Martino, who heads the Vatican's council, said it was important to address the issue because driving had become a big part of contemporary life.

"We know that as a consequence of transgressions and negligence, 1.2 million people die each year on the roads," he said.

I'm largely indifferent as to whether she travels along or not - it's not like we'll be nipping out at HT to relieve the tension or anything - so I don't encourage it, merely offer. When she does decide to go, she thinks it's some sort of favour to me, and in return for this supposed favour, refuses to leave "early" i.e. any time other than how long it would take to travel to the ground if there were no traffic, no queues at the turnstiles and it was midnight. The game is throwing in in Tullamore at 3pm (20 mins away at 3am on a Saturday night) and if I want to leave at any time before 2.35 I get a barrage of moaning about how is it not good enough that she's going without having to sit in the cold for fifteen minutes. (I'm aware of the mathematical incongruity....) Suggesting that she doesn't have to go gets met with the inevitable carnage that is "so you don't want to spend time with me??" extravaganza.

I wouldn't mind but for last years minor final replay in Ennis we left with loads of time to spare (after I spent a full day warning her of the likely traffic chaos), got trapped in the mire around Gort and ended up missing the first twenty minutes. So she duly had a conniption and couldn't understand why (a) I didn't "make" her leave earlier and (b) I didn't know a magic short cut unknown to the other 10,000 motorists all going the same way.

......phew......

(2) You're going to the shop for a small errand. Ask if she wants anything, and get met with the horror answer - "A surprise!". Now what was a five minute trip to Spar to pick up a paper has become an ordeal, as you go through their entire stock trying to pick out something semi-meaningful/thoughtful that won't get you in trouble. Apparantly they don't mean it literally either - as I found out when I brought back what I thought was a quite surprising litre of engine oil. (I wish I was making that up.......  :-[)

(3) Like the above, but instead of surprise, insert "something nice". But not any of the things she normally likes, because she doesn't feel like them today. Or anything that she told you two years ago that she wasn't gone on.

(4) Travelling in the car while she has a hangover, spending the whole trip moaning "are we there yet" and how it's taking so long, but then having a conniption if you try to overtake anything.

(5) Deciding that she wants to stay in on Saturday night so as to be able to study the next day, expecting you to do the same to keep her company, then spending the whole night complaining about how everyone on the whole planet is out but her, and then spending all that time the next day that she was supposed to be studying on the phone to all her friends talking about what happened.

(6) Saying how she'd love to understand more about politics/current affairs/world events, but every time there's a good documentary or episode of Prime Time or Newsnight on, complaining how her "head's not able for that now" and wanting to turn over to soaps or some such.


I could go on. But I won't. This has all been rather cathartic actually.  :)

Women standing at bus stop, bus comes they queue for 10 mins then when they get to the driver, they go searching for purse and pay in coppers!!! You can change bus stop to supermarket checkout.

Also d**kheads who don't have change for the bus, and hand the driver a £5/£10/£20 they should be kicked of the bus for being stupid.

Married people or people in long term relationships who do the dirt and think it's ok.

People who's friends are married or in long term relationships do the dirt and they think it's ok.

People who watch crap soaps / films etc and see married people or people in long term relationships do the dirt and think that is ok.

Would any of the f**king people above think it was ok if the dirt was done on them - at least have some f**king consistency.

I was in super market in Carrick yetersday and some auld battle axe comes up to the "express" checkout with a fkucin trolley!!! What was worse was your one at the till actually served her instead telling her to move it on. Held the whole show up, I only had a bloddy sandwich!! The neck on your one, then when she pays she starts looking for some sort of bloody vouchers and yon dipstick behind the till goes looking for these instead of telling her to sling her hook that there are people behind her who don't have all afternoon to piss about

Women walkers...Why must they walk 5 abrest on a country road and then not get into a single file as a car approaches? Was driving a back road around Dunboyne today when i met 5 women walking all spread out across the road,I had to stop because there was a car coming the other way and then swerve around the walkers they gave me a look then as if i had somehow upset their walking routine......FAT ARSE BITCHES >:(

Also i hate those f**kers who are out walking and walk straight across a entrance to an estate without out looking to see if  a car is turning into or out of said estate,and even if there is a car coming the car is suppose to stop to let walker cross first  >:(

Women golfers...  >:(self explantory the two should never come together golf and women just doesn't work

This one has probably been up already but slow moving vehicles on main arterial routes during rush hours.

Fuckin farmers and builders with their tractors holding up large queues of cars, going at 25 to 30 mph and you can't get by the f**kers and they don't pull in.

I'd bring in a law where any vehicle which isn#t doing at least 40mph is banned from the main roads during 7am to 9am in the morning and 4.30pm to 6pm in the evenings.

I say that every f'ckn day, the selfish idiots, get off the road, nearly got killed last week by what looked like a 14 year old driving a massive bailing machine yoke with giant forks out the front of it nearly as wide as a lane & a half going around those roads along by Lough Cullen & Lough Conn. Also if another person tailgates me. Its probably the most dangerous road in Ireland, and then you have all these idiots on it making it more dangerous, O yea and where are the Gardai the only good bit just after Knockmore the Ballina side, Gardai you should be down in Clydagh Woods near Castlebar, that side road just before the bend at the start of Lough Cullen, at the Pontoon Bridge Hotel, the Pontoon Side of Knockmore, thats where the Gardai should be parked and arrest every last one of them. I really hate the way they are always slowing down on the only little bit of good road, because they know the Gardai are waiting for them, I think the Gardai have the right idea but are parked in the wrong place.

Oh and yeah FS tailgating wrecks my head too. Was travelling from Athboy to Carrickmacross last Saturday with the kids in the car and there is a queue of traffic because of a slow moving car up front, thats fine, its a whore of a road, nothing but bad bends and who the f**k is tailgating me but some idiot on a motorbike (won't say where the reg was from) the impatient gimp starts swerving the bike over and back behind the car. When he is not doing this he has the arms dropped and controlling the bike without any hands (gimp!). He overtook me and two other cars on a continuous white line on a very short straight stretch of road. I was expecting to travell a few miles up the road and find him burried in the windscreen of an oncoming car. I would have tested the brakes on my own yoke only I didn't want him landing on top of the kids, wouldn't have cared about the car, his insurance could have covered the damage.

Women with big cleavage sitting behind you....

Quote
BERLIN (Reuters) - A German bus driver threatened to throw a 20-year-old sales clerk off his bus in the southern town of Lindau because he said she was too sexy, a newspaper reported on Monday.

"Suddenly he stopped the bus," the woman named Debora C. told Bild newspaper. "He opened the door and shouted at me 'Your cleavage is distracting me every time I look into my mirror and I can't concentrate on the traffic. If you don't sit somewhere else, I'm going to have to throw you off the bus.'"

The woman said she moved to another seat but was humiliated by the bus driver.

A spokesman for the bus company defended the driver.

"The bus driver is allowed to do that and he did the right thing," the spokesman said. "A bus driver cannot be distracted because it's a danger to the safety of all the passengers."

The way u run a bath an it takes ages filling it, an then when ya go to get into it, its either too hot an roasts the feet off ya, or too cold.. it puts me off the long awaited bath an gets me in a complete mood and just end up havin a shower instead.  >:(
I always do similar with the dishes.  Fill a sink of water that would scald you and it's normally too full to put cold water in, I can't get me hand in to let water out either and I usually need a knife or tea spoon that's at the bottom  :-\

I know it's a bit trivial but when your standing waiting to cross a road at traffic lights and you've pressed the button for the green man to come on. While you stand there waiting to cross, why does every person who arrives afer you proceed to press the button 3 to 4 times. Do they really think the people standing there haven't thought to do it already?

Does anybody else hate the mobile phone joke phenomenom. I just dont get it. My Brother in law was at it tonight. Hands me his phone with a stupid smile

"here .......read that"

then he starts to laugh as I start to read and laughs louder when he knows I'm at the punchline  ???

Now I would guess that 90% of people don't find the jokes funny enough to laugh out loud but they do because they have to

I hate any type of fake social networking bullshit. This is the latest

People sitting beside me on buses. Strange, I know but everyone who sits beside me on a bus annoys the life out of me. They always have something annoying about them. A smell, a bad cough, sneezing fits, they talk sh*t to me, they have a million bags and I miss my stop when I try to get out past them. It's probably just me though.
Title: Re: You know what really grinds my gears?

people on buses that when you sit beside them they wince and look like you've just slapped them across the face or if you have done something wrong by sitting next to them.
Then also peoples reactions if you sit beside them and you blow your nose, or cough- jeez it winter 9 months of the year in Ireland, flu and colds are always going around.
Plus you have to wear a couple of coats to shield you from the rain or cold, so there is bound to be a bit of a niff from the sweat or drying damp on the clothes - again these folk you sit beside expect folks to be going home on the bus/train etc as if they have just jumped out of the bath.
If you dont like public transport- then f**king walk or take your own car...

People who cough and sneeze in public places without covering up and doing it into a hankie/tissue or something. Where have they been since science discovered the transmission mechanism for colds and flu? Right - coughing and sneezing! Their attitude seems to be "I've got it, so I don't see why everyone else shouldn't have it". Selfish, inconsiderate hoors. There used to be a law against spitting to restrict transmission of TB. Why not a law against sneezing and coughing out into the air we all have to share in a confined space? It would save the public purse a fortune.

Someone sitting beside you in mass coughing and sneezing into their hand and then it comes to shaking hands....ffs!
The worst I've ever seen was standing in a cue at a Deli counter.  It was a few summers ago and a really hot day.  The fella was rushed of his feet and you could see the sweat sitting out on his forehead.  He goes to make up a sandwich for the person in front of me, puts on those plastic gloves and THEN wipes the sweat of his forehead with his covered hand and dips it in the chicken!

I walked away!

I agree. I hate all this pretentious kissing shite. I never know now who I'm supposed to kiss or handshake at so mostly I just grunt and back off and look very very unkissable (which isn't hard). I see young wans now and they're kissing each other three or four times and making that f****n awful "maw-mwa" sound even when they're just coming back from the jacks.

thought of this thread when some guy sat down behind me and started huffing, puffing and then coughed - at least it was into his hankie.

Reading articles in the papers about the "forgotten heroes", ie the Irish who fought in both World Wars for the British (obviously not the Irish who fought for the USA) and how the Irish State has forgotten them. |Meanwhile, the media is(quiet rightly) saturated with reporting of memorials, religious services, openings of new statues etc.commemorating their sacrifice.
Have nothing against these ceremonies, but I object to the political motives (anti Irish Nationalism) which is the real reason for this imo wrong interperatation that the Irish State turned its back on the deaths of the C15,000 Irish from the 26 counties who die in WW1.

My woman tidying things away and then when you can't find it denying she's ever set eyes on it.
This time it's the camera...needed for the weekend, can't be found!  She has never set eyes on it, she'd remember if she put it somewhere!!!  >:(  Experience says it'll turn up, probably monday when it's not needed, in some drawer, where she put it!

Does this happen in other people's houses?

Post by: Orior on August 06, 2007, 10:06:15 PM
I love airport check-in queueing. What a sport!


The Check-in Queue

Choose the shortest queue or the fastest moving queue? It won’t matter - you've still got the departure gate queue to contend with.

Spend ages getting to the front of the check-in desk queue only to see a second desk open up.

Remember to smile - you’re on your holidays.

Watch people who came in behind you get on the new check in desk before you.

Stay cheerful – you’re on your holidays.

Cringe at the sight of owc tops, rangers tops, gold chain necklaces, beer gut hanging out over tracksuit bottoms of tattooed ladies

Choose the same queue as the family behind you with the kids that want to beat your ankles with their trolley.

Last Minute Spending

Stop, relax and take your time because you’ve got though the check-in process. Curse yourself later for not realising the queue for the departure gate.

Queue for a tea and a sandwich, then stand behind the old lady who wants to pay for her cream scone with loose change. Bitch.

Departure Lounge

Fecking queue at the Departure gate is huge. Panic slightly, but then remember you’ve dealt with the check-in queue, so this is no bother. You’re on your holidays.

Choose to be disgusted at having to buy a plastic bag into which you place your cosmetics. Try not to show displeasure when they confiscate your shaving cream just because it’s slightly bigger than the allotted size. Vow not to buy the same in the duty free shop just around the corner. Smile when the woman behind you has to open her case and have some personal electrical items inspected. Step sideways and pretend she’s not with you.

Choose to steal metal knives and forks from the restaurant in the departure lounge because your plastic ones were confiscated at the departure gate. Smuggle them onto the plane in case you're attacked by a terrorist.

Boarding Time

Choose the same flight as people who ignore the boarding group call. Its group A first, but group B people will still queue up before the group A people

Choose the flight with people who don’t know how to switch off the overhead air vent and end up calling the hostess several times. How can anyone be so stupid?

Choose the seat behind the goof who wants to lean their seat back into your face. b**tard.

Choose the seat in front of the kid that wants to shake your seat. Little git.

Choose to sit beside the guy with sickening body odour. Smelly b**tard.

Feck it, choose to stay at home next year.

Women in work talking about weddings all day

Girl I sit beside talked about nothing else for at least 6 months, guests, seating arrangements, problems. flowers, songs, you know, the whole song and dance, then when see came back it took another 3 weeks of complete and utter tedium to retell the entire wedding day, and the honeymoon (no graphic details of the night thank god)

Shes now three months pregnant, and guess what, she wont feck up!!!!

agree totally.... happened the other night to me. Auld F****r got ten quid out and then got his wife's card out for a tenner for her. This was after studying the screen for a lifetime before he decided what he wanted. It's the same in the supermarket when the person just served insists in blocking the queue by making sure they take their time packing - sheer bad manners. Also, feckers who insist that they leave their receipt in the bank machine so as to show off how much money they have in the bank - I saw one once "available balance - £42,000" - left for show .. there is nobody needs that money in a current account...! move it to savings!!

Not a fisherman eh?  Trying to cast a deadbait under an overhang, misjudging it and getting the whole lot wrapped round a branch after spending at least a half hour footerin to get it right, really gives ye that sinking feeling -  rapidly followed by the John McEnroe impersonations

It is illegal to have your fog lights on unless there is fog.

I'm on the motorways alot thru work and the amount of these type of cars who bully you into letting them pass you is unreal.Even on Dual carriageways they will drive right up to your bumper and flash the lights until you pull over they even do it when you yourself are passing out a line of lorries and have no way of pulling over.


When d**kheads like that are sitting right up your arse just switch on your tail lights and watch them shit themselves. :o

I pulled into a petrol station just outside Mullingar on the Dublin Road,As i was walking to the shop this f**ker nearly knocks me over in his Merc then proceeds to park in the disabled zone,He jumps out of the car and heads towards the toilet...
Then as i was in the shop queing up to pay said man comes in roaring and shouting why were the toilets not working,It was bad enough that he proceeded to skip the queue to speak to the girl behind the counter but the abuse he gave her was shocking..
I wasn't having any of it so i said to him firstly that i was next in the queue that he just skipped and also was there any need to speak to the girl in that way as it wasn't her fault the toilets weren't working...
Naturally he told me to f**k off and mind my own business and then turned to the girl and said "f**k off back to your own country" and then walked out
What a b**tard..I got his number plate but i suppose there is no point in ringing Guards

My record with them is about hour and half, speaking to 6 or 7 people including someone in wales who couldn't help because our system is not on their computers.  If I ever crack up I'll end up in the nearest BT centre blowing people's brains out. 
I hope to God I see the day when they don't have the monopoly on phone lines and are begging for customers because the c***ts don't give a f**k.

 Like Ziggy i have in a few occasions out of sheer frustration on the phone said to the person:
"now we're talking about a number, right? Yes sir, Now does 8 sound like 1, no,
 Does 8 sound like 2", no, and so on till we get to 8 and lo and behold and who'd a thunk it

  Oh and another one, what about trying to order Ham at a deli counter.
  I wasn't long here and was at the counter in a fairly big super market,
 asked the woman for a half a pound of ham and as you say Pints, she didn't even
 try to comprehend, i just wasn't saying it the way she wanted to hear it,
 needless to say i wouldn't give in and at this stage 6 or 7 people had got into line behind me,
 eventually the man behind me had to tell her what it was i wanted.
 Stood off to the side and demanded the Manager who in turn tore her a new one in front of all of us ;D

Thats why most of them are thick b**tards. Incapable of listening. In my job i speak to Dutch, Belgians, Germans, Scandanvians etc every day, and i have never been misunderstood by them or had to ask them to repeat anything. Yet any of the local lads get a call from our European offices they complain they cant understand them.
Even had the manager of our Liverpool office request to speak to someone else other than me because she cant understand my "funny" accent. If she knew what irony was it would be lost on her.

My wife going out with her friends on a Saturday night and not coming home till lunchtime on Sunday - and still DRUNK! When I ask where's she's been, I'm told: "A party" - whatever that means? Then she clears off to bed for the rest of the day and I catch her on the phone later that night giggling and laughing to her new friend - Gerry (short for Geraldine apparently) ... Now she tells me she is working late tonight (never gets overtime) and has to go to Dublin on Saturday week for a "conference". That really grinds my gears.

I don't remember who said it, but for me it's the last word on vegetarianism - why fight your way to the top of the food chain and then eat lettuce?

Also, a great suggestion for dealing with vegetarians is, when they invite you to dinner, ring them the day before and remind them that of course you'll be requiring a nice rare sirloin - same as they'd do to you for muesli and nut pies.

Aye Ziggy, think it was Keith Allen doing the documentary - one woman was slabbering flat out about god, sanctity of marriage, gays, etc..blah..blah..etc... only to be hit with Allen finding out she actually wasn't married when she had her first son - and therefore a hyprocritical fornicating fornicator.

Hey pints,
Who should the mothers leave the kids at home with wheb they're out shopping? Is there a service or something I don't know about?

POG, surely to god mothers with young children deserve a little bit of special treatment, do you fancy trailing young children and groceries across a packed car park with nuts thinking its a race track.
No.  Leave them at home if that's going to be a problem. 

I wouldnt expect anything else from you pog

Was out shopping this morning, the fat lazy bestards who park in the Disabled spaces or the spaces reserved for mothers and toddlers. Out of the disabled ones, there are four, only one displayed a sticker, one had a guy reading the paper and his partner arrived when we were there, he helped out with the groceries, nothing wrong with either of them. A people carrier arrived and parked in one of the spaces, jesus it was like the ugly millie sisters on tour, two had jamie bottems on and and looked like over weight umpa lumpas, and the ma, she was worse, like a rollie polly, f all wrong with them, except lazyness I bet..... >:(

You're a F**king Ass POG. The parent and toddler spaces are wider, so as the parent who has to go doing the shopping with the kids while the other parent is at work doesn't have to beat the shit of the door of the car next to them just so as they have enough space to get their kid into a child seat.

If the spaces are there to allow for more space why not have them at the back of the car park?  Then we can could use the spaces around the doors for disabled people.  In mother toddler spaces I see there's only about two, what use is this?  They're assigned by the shop so they can claim to be a family store or some nonsense. 
I bet not one of you know why there are mother toddler spaces at the doors! 
btw, if I know I've to come out of the shop with a big box, can I park in some "man with big box" space so I've more room?

Chatter on phones
sit on the end seats of the row with all the middle ones empty and then mutter and grumble when a legion of people have to disturb them to get past
and finally, worst of all, kick the back of my f**king chair all throughout the film...

...would want to all be dragged outside and beaten repeatedly with lump hammers.

Billy, you forgot the sweet-wrapper rustlers.

Where did the custom of having to gorge yourself with junk when watching a film come from anyway?

I always sit in the outside seat, btw. I like the sideways-legroom option and the ability to come and go without climbing over people and until now I naively assumed if I got there first it was reasonable to choose my preferred seat - that is if you don't mind too much! But I don't grumble at letting people in and out, though I think I might start if they all so obviously resent so much the fact that I came early and got a good seat!

Now I'm trying to work out if you are trying to wind me up, or if you really are that ignorant.
1. They are parent and cild spaces and not Mother and Toddler (men need them more as woman are vastly more capable of coping with the kids)
2. Is it kids, women or families in general that you don't like?
3. The spaces are their to make it a bit easier when you have to handle a trolley, a toddler and myabe a hanfull of other kids. Just to explain this to you, this is not the easiest task in the world in a busy shoping centre

Long time since I've called anyone names, but you're a complete and utter w**ker pog. Vile human in more ways than one. If you cannot understand the dangers in parents and toddlers, maybe a single mum with 2 or 3, getting out of a car in the middle of a car park full of motors edging in and out, then you're the lowest of the low. (though your attitude to most thing have already confirmed that)

What's the problem there?  Surely in a busy carpark you've little or no chance of getting the either of the two mother toddler spaces at the front doors so you've to contend with normal narrow spaces, sorting the kids out in a busy end of the car park and then walking through it.

PC World, Sprucefield.
You go in knowing exactly what you want. You find it. They keep them out the back. You stand about like a tube waiting for some assistance. There is nobody about for ages. Eventually you spot one of the egg heads. He is wearing make up and looks like a girl. First you think, "I wonder what the lads would think on the Would you/Wouldn't you thread". You ask, "Can I have some help please?" He replys, "There's a queue". He walks on. "Hey boy, where is the queue?" He says, "Down there" and points to the back corner of the shop. You go down and find 4 seats and 10 people. It looks no more like a queue than a herd of cattle. You stand there for an hour. Eventually it's your turn. You bring the egg head to the item you require. He says "You could get 452682176gigamegarambamblahblah". "No thanks, just this please". He looks at you as if to say, "You shouldn't be here". You grab it off him and go to the till. You get out of there pronto.

8:50--egghead comes out from under shutters with 10 goldne tickets for the laptops--front of Q has 2 asian couples(i reckon they will get 2 at most between them) No--we all want one--i start sweatin but think i'll stil get 1--then a few ahead a mother and he 14 tear old daughter both get one--still though im gonna be 10th theres only that man and his 6yo son in front of me and 2 tickets left-what do you think happens--the wee man must have got money from santa for christmas--i nearly threw up there and then-- i was fit to kill someone, soaked, shakin, head spinnin, fuckn ragin
Was "lucky" enough to get one of 10 PC's for £200--carted it home--of course had to but a desk and chair for it then--got home and there was no mouse in it--had to drive 10 mile back to shop--took forever to get up the fuckn q again

PC wouldnt turn on about 2 weeks later--went to PC world--told the power something had gone and i would have to phone the tech guys to come out and fix it--then had to take a half day off work so they could come out and fix it

Usually flash harry's in BM's or Mercs who do this, so noone parks to close to them and scrapes their precious f**king cars.

Interesting point...if you accidently backed / bumped or scrapped another car while it was parked in a parking lot would you drive on and say nothing / hope nobody saw you, or would you leave a note with your details??  Ive always went over this in my head while reversing into spaces like in Castlecourt or mulitplex car parks..i think i would drive on and say nought!!

the best thing for them would be to just get outa the yoke and accidentally brush yer door off them anyhow (by accident of course), especially if yer driving a banger, that would teach the feckers. Its rife in newry, so bloody annoyin to see these big fancy expensive diesel guzzlers parked across 2 spaces.

If I opened my car door and it tapped a car in a space beside me, of course I would go on, what would you like me to do - trace the owner who would get a quote for their whole car to be resprayed.  Worse still are ones who park in the mother and toddler spaces as there is more room there but not a child seat to be seen, these muppets should be clamped.

f**king Saturday morning soccer players who think they are IT.

Played last week with one guy wearing a pair of white ankle socks OVER his socks so to create that Ronaldo White band affect. nearly choked on my water when i realised it at HT.

Just general Saturday Morning soccer players CRYING; to the Ref, to their own team-mates, to their own manager, to the opposition players, opposition managers, anyone watching. Crying about everything under the sun. Moan moan moan.
All this with barely one tackle going in the whole game. they all think they are on Match of the day with the childish tantrums

second ever game i've played and it doing my nuts in!

If everyone parked properly we wouldnt have these problems, but sadly that is never going to happen. I can fully understand why some people in nice cars deliberately park across two spaces. It isnt nice when some kn**ker bangs the door of their shit-heap against your shiny new motor. The biggest culprits are women in Ford Galaxy type cars with a shopping trolly and a few kids. They have no respect for other peoples property.
It isnt a crime to have a nice car, but it is a criminal act to damage someones car and drive on.

Yous should park in them mother toddler spaces, great room to swing the door open.
I dont know why more people don't do it.

I take it you have no kids; and by kids I mean toodlers - hence the name - mother and toodler spaces.  All toodlers have to by law and for safety be in a car seat, not a booster seat a car seat, very very young childern this seat gets taken out of the car and put on the pram - this requires space for the mother/father hence these spaces have the extra room round them.  Even older kids out of these seats need a car seat and invarable cannot walk yet or walk very well so when they are taken out then need to be placed into a waiting pram or buggy - especially if you have other kids to deal with.  People like yourself who selfishly take up these spaces at the expense of a mother/father and their toodler should be clamped and towed away.

2.  My main objection is these spaces being at the doors.  Would these spaces not be better used for disabled people?

People whom wont pull over when holding up traffic. If it’s an old person I don’t get as mental as I would if it’s a younger person. Can they not see that they are f**king holding everyone else up? They are the people who cause accidents, not the lunatic flying down the road!. It leads to road rage. Well in my case anyway.


old people should not be allowed on the road. they should be made to re-sit their driving test at 55 and every 5 years after that

Right click the Pad icon in the bottom right corner of the tool bar, select properties,
 from there you have the option to select how sensitive the pad will be to pressure.
You can also turn it off and just use the left button to select.

Why do these spaces have to be at the doors?

I will try and explain once again.  For a parent to get a child in and out of a car requires more room than the 3 inches each side of the door in a normal space; the supermarkets, shopping centres further aid the parent and child by having the spaces close to the exits/doors so that the safety of the child(ren) is put first when a parent loaded with shopping and trying to negotiate child(ren) safely into his/her parked car.  I just learned that a clamping system is being introduced by major shopping centres for people who abuse the mother/toddler spaces - lets hope you get clamped [edited by Mod3]

I will try and explain once again.  For a parent to get a child in and out of a car requires more room than the 3 inches each side of the door in a normal space; the supermarkets, shopping centres further aid the parent and child by having the spaces close to the exits/doors so that the safety of the child(ren) is put first when a parent loaded with shopping and trying to negotiate child(ren) safely into his/her parked car.  I just learned that a clamping system is being introduced by major shopping centres for people who abuse the mother/toddler spaces - lets hope you get clamped you complete and utter p***k.

Yes I know why the spaces need to be wider, if I come out of the shop with a big box I could be doing with a wider space but I don't see these popping up. 
They need to be at the doors - for the safety of the children eh?  If a parent can't walk a couple of children through a car park they shouldn't have children!
How do you think a parent with no car does?  How do you think parents that don't get the 2 or 3 selfish parent and toddler spaces do?

Because a tool like you is parked in them?  They manage, we all do - for someone who has no children this argument is obviously lost on you.  By the way comparing carrying a wide box with a small human being shows just what a [edited by Mod3]

Ah now pints, you can't say there is no arguement for the parent and child spaces, it has been put forward by snowed under, myself and others on this and in fact on a couple of other threads as well at this stage. Snowed under has lost the cool which I have done before with your ignorant manner, that is understandable. But now you are going and telling teacher (you can't go telling mammy as she is parked at the back of the car park), that is a bit childish. Have you reported it yet  ::)

Pints, those mother and toddler spaces are close to the door for a reason. I am sure it could be quite difficult for a woman to load her car with shopping and get the kids into the car if she was on her own.
Nonsense I do it all the time.

Would you really want to see a woman struggling with a screaming toddler and a busted bag of shopping.
NO course not but I've never seen a woman like that taking advantage of a space.  It's the women that have to walk a mile home with a few children and a couple of bags of shopping that get my sympathy.

Would it kill you to have to walk from the back of the car park, or even half way down it?
It might! According to louth exile and snowed under carparks are dangerous places!

Not only an ignorant individual but a cyber world freak.  Again, having no childern how can you comment about any parent being unfit if they want to avail of the spaces made available for them by shopping centres which you choose to ignore and selfishly park in.  Hope you get clamped real soon.

I never said the parent was unfit for wanting to avail of the spaces - who wouldnt want to park at the door?
I dont buy this thing that a parent can't walk children across a car park.  As I say, I do it all the time - with children.

And toddlers? As you have no kids I will again explain what that is; a toddler is a child who is totally dependant on others; they cannot walk; cannot talk; cannot take direction; by law and for safety they need to be in certain type of car seat which the parent then attaches to a pram; hence the wider spaces; shopping centres appreciate that the parent may have more than one child and this coupled with any shopping they may purchase is the reason the spaces are near the doors.  It is quite obvious that these spaces and their intentions are treated with pure contempt by yourself; so as I say hope you get clamped real soon.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz  Yes I know what toddlers are and have had them shopping too.  Jeeze this high and mighty attitudes some parents have is unreal  :D
Most parents have a push chair or pram for a toddler so there is no issue with walking them across a carpark.
So we're back to the wide spaces which I've no issue it, just put them at a suitable location in the car park and free up spaces at the door for disabled parking.
Do you think, you as a parent, are more entitled to a space at the door than a disabled person?

Absolutely not which is why I would never park in a disabled space.  Do you think as a non-parent you are entitled to selfishly use allocated spaces for mothers and toddlers?

Aside from the fact that they are at the front doors do you not concede that a mother/father with a toddler needs the extra space these allocated spaces provide.  If so your selfish act of parking in them is even more reprehensible.  The parents didn't place tham at the doors the shopping centres did.

POG I will have to agree with u to a certain degree... i don't park in the mother toddler spaces (for fear of clamping or fine lol :D) but do agree that they need bigger spaces to save others cars as much as anything but don't see y they need to be at the door?? much better use if they were disabled spaces.... its simple put the kids in the car seats then unload the shopping out of the trolley into the car job done. I know single parents who don't have a car and manage to walk with a pram and two other young children from the supermarket over a mile home so don't think it would be too much for any parent to walk the length of a car park to a less busy area for safety reasons also. STUCK UP SELFISH PARENTS.. and its not all parents in fact its just a few that kick up a stink to say that they need spaces at the door. There's a lot of parents worse of than u who would be thankful of the chance to use a car parking space at the back of the car park...!


ANother thing that grinds my gears is jealous people who stereotype people who drive nice cars ie bmw's merc's porsche's etc as bad drivers and stuck up people just because they have had a bad experience with 1 or 2 of these drivers or else they are just jealous.

People work hard throughout life to get the luxuries they desire and have lasy arsewits slag them off just because they couldn't be arsed working hard in life to get luxuries they want... not all nice car drivers are the same.. u cant tar everyone with the same brush because of a few bad expeiences or else plain old envy

Hear hear!

You know what else I don't get, maybe some of our parents could explain, the "baby on board" or "child on board" or whatever those signs are that you stick up in the window of the car.  In the name of Jesus what are those for?  What is there purpose?

I don't have any rage surrounding parents and kids (certainly nothing against kids) but selfish parents really get to me.  For example, the ones who have kids for show, the ones who think nothing of leaving them with babysitters while the go to work and then dumping them again so they can go out for the weekend.  The ones who think their children are other people's responsibility.

God of almighty you are unreal.  I honestly think Tyrone's own has hit a nerve, you obviously can't have kids and are a bit bitter or else you totally hate kids.  A few facts; the kid on board, child on board is a bit of a tacky thing most new mums do, friends or family would buy the sign, its tacky nothing more but you wouldn't know as you have no kids of your own.  The leaving the kids while you go to work and then have the nerve to go for a night out statement, shows how your bitter twisted mind works at the fact of either being unable to father a child or just have a loathing for kids.  In today's society it is very hard to manage on a single salary, unless you are earning mega bucks; my wife works part time and every now and again granny takes the kids and we get a night out.  From you're twisted bitter logic we have kids for show, I seriously would love to hear your definition of a parent which would not in away show selfish qualtities based on your very bitter and twisted logic, but which you have no experience of and really are in a poor position to comment.  As I said - you really are unreal.  :o

Do I sound like someone that hates kids when I say "if you have children they should be your life"?
I've no issue with both parents working and then taking the odd night out - it's the parents who spend as much time as they can away from the children I've a problem with. 
the  rest of your post is just waffle.  I've seen you making judgements and generalisations about people on another thread but making assumptions about my sperm count takes the biscuit. 
You think I'm bitter, twisted etc, how many times now that you taunted someone, who you believe can't have children, about not having children?  That's quite a vile thing to do don't you think?

*shakes head in disbelief*

firstly, I realise this is starting to drag on and bore people so I apologise for that but I don't think I can let this go without an answer.

Quote
God of almighty you are unreal.  I honestly think Tyrone's own has hit a nerve, you obviously can't have kids and are a bit bitter or else you totally hate kids.  A few facts; the kid on board, child on board is a bit of a tacky thing most new mums do, friends or family would buy the sign, its tacky nothing more but you wouldn't know as you have no kids of your own.  The leaving the kids while you go to work and then have the nerve to go for a night out statement, shows how your bitter twisted mind works at the fact of either being unable to father a child or just have a loathing for kids.  In today's society it is very hard to manage on a single salary, unless you are earning mega bucks; my wife works part time and every now and again granny takes the kids and we get a night out.  From you're twisted bitter logic we have kids for show, I seriously would love to hear your definition of a parent which would not in away show selfish qualtities based on your very bitter and twisted logic, but which you have no experience of and really are in a poor position to comment.  As I said - you really are unreal.

Do I sound like someone that hates kids when I say "if you have children they should be your life"?
I've no issue with both parents working and then taking the odd night out - it's the parents who spend as much time as they can away from the children I've a problem with.  the  rest of your post is just waffle.  I've seen you making judgements and generalisations about people on another thread but making assumptions about my sperm count takes the biscuit. 
You think I'm bitter, twisted etc, how many times now that you taunted someone, who you believe can't have children, about not having children?  That's quite a vile thing to do don't you think?

It's a good job I'm not bothered   ::)


That really comes across - from parking spaces to child on board to parents having a night out - its all bitter.

No, but because a parent parks in a space that is designated for them they are selfish  ??? ???
However its perfectly ok for you to park in this same spot so as you can go in and buy your sweets  ??? ???
I'm confused, but I've really had enough of this argument, no matter what you are determined to have the last word on it pints, so if thats what makes you happy.

You did, as every parent I know with a toddler would avail of the space designated for themselves (by the shopping centre) which you choose to park in out of spite and as a statement of contempt for parenthood.  You did as every parent I know uses the baby on board thingy as it is a tacky thing mums like to do.  You did as every parent I know works and takes the odd night out.

I never said a parent who sticks up a sign in the car is selfish - I simply asked what the purpose of the signs where.

I tried to draw a line because people are bored, I'm getting a bit bored too. 
To explain the statement, parents who believe they've a God given right to park at the doors of a shop because they have children are the selfish ones.  Of course I don't blame any parent for making use of the space when it's there but it's those that think it's their right to be given special treatment. 
I simply asked what the purpose behind the baby on board signs, hardly a dig at anything.
I have never said anything about parents having a night out.  I don't understand why people have children when they aren't prepared to spend time with them.  I realise parent's have to work but they don't need to go out every weekend and throw the child with a babysitter.  That's selfish. 
You keep saying I don't like children when it's children I'm defending (for the want of a better word). 
I've nothing against decent good parents either, it's the ones that have children and then let a babysitter bring them up I've a problem with.  If you work all day - say get home at 6ish - a child is in bed by 8, so that's maybe 15 hours during the week (say a hour in the morning) you spend with the child.  At the weekend surely you'd want to be with the child and do things they like?

God this fairly got out of hand. I'm a parent and I agree with what POG says about mother and toddler spaces. He never said he didn't agree with them, he acknowledges that parents with prams and pushchairs need that bit of extra space,  however its the location of these spaces that grinds his gears and he's correct.  What about elderly people who might not have a disabled badge but are still quite frail. Surely they deserve precedence for prime spaces over parents and toddlers.  My biggest concern, however, was the spiteful way in which the debate degenerated into a triumphalist 'I have kids and you have none' arguement like something you'd see in a school playground. This type of gloating is pathetic and indeed reflects the mentality of those who put Baby on Board signs on the back of their cars. Its just another way of publicly advertising their virility. For instance how many times do you see blokes walking down the High Street carrying an unwrapped bumper pack of Pampers nappies like some type of trophy? I'll bet if their missus asked them to nip out to the chemist and bring them back a pack of ST's they'd run a feckin mile.

If you read what i said you would see that I asked Pintsofguinness had he kids - when he said no I was asking why he was in a position to judge parents.  With his other snide comments I concluded he was either bitter at not having any or just didn't like kids, it seemed the only explaination.

You walk out knowing it's pointless to, and hard to, explain that it's not yours to the fella bursting to get in. He vaguely knows you. As you find another toilet, you hear 'dorty b**tard' from the other cubicle. You're afeard to come out as he'll probably be standing there. Now things take a turn for the worse. Your own remnants won't flush either. You know the same fella now wants into yours cubicle as there are only two. Resigned and stripped of all sense of dignity, you walk out.

On couple of related notes:
1. Women giving out about the seat being left up, F up, we don't give out about the seat being left down!
2. Does dirty B******s who don't bother lifting the seat  >:( Was in the toilet in a private hospital first thing yesterday morning, (in other words a decent public toilet, not like Quinns at 7 in the evening on a big match day). Anyway, already at that stage some git had pissed all over the seat because a) he was too lazy to lift the seat and b) he doesn't have enough control of his c**k that he can simply aim into the bowl. So muggins here has to wipe away the piss so I can go for morning manoeuvres!!  >:(

O'Neill, that cubicle scenario was the funniest thing here in a long time.

I also enjoyed the fit parent vs. disabled/old person debate and found myself bemused that POG was labeled a monster for suggesting that incapacitated people have more need to be close to the shop door than fit and able parents equipped with all the necessary tackle and apparatus to transport their kids a few dozen yards.

Anyway, my gear-grinder for today is people who drive into your street/road/ghetto and disrupt the peace and tranquility of the whole neighbourhood by beeping their horns to attract the attention of whoever it is they've come to see. Lazy b**tards - have they never heard of doorbells? Often they're young lads calling to pick up their mots, but mostly they're taxi drivers.

And some day I'm going to do an epic rant on indiscriminate sneezers.

I was away and missed it and to my surprise found it so fascinating that I read every word of it this morning. And that's what I took as the crux of it. POG said he couldn't see the necessity for putting parent-and-toddler parking near the door, to the exclusion of additional disabled parking spaces. He also said that, because he couldn't see the need for it he didn't mind using these spaces himself. For that he was attacked and accused of mother-hating, child-hating, and all sorts of unspeakable personal traits. And then he was diagnosed (remotely, online) as being impotent - or was it infertile? A bit OTT, no?

Anyway (not directed at you), I don't understand the tendency of old ladies here to clutch at their collars and declare that this or that debate has gone on long enough. I enjoy the cut and thrust of a good robust barney and I'm capable of deciding for myself when it has gone on long enough for me. Then I'll stop reading.

You see any place that has decent managment won't be worried about a euro here or there (once that is all it is) Is it not more important to keep the customers happy. The best example is where you do a €200 shop in Tesco and they skin for the 3cents at the end of it, yet when you go into the fruit and veg shop and it come to €10.10 they simply give you back a €10 note instead of €9.90 in change. Its simple customer service, margins are not that tight in the retail trade

2 points Hardy - firstly his holiness openly stated there were too many disables spaces!!! and no one took him to task on this - this an individual who flies the moral high horse flag on most all threads; secondly the point is these spaces are allocated by the shopping centre for mother and toddlers.  POG thinks if parents park in them they are selfish - why for parking in an allocated space; yet he is happy to be park in them himself; does that not smart of double standards?  He then had a go at parents for having a baby on board sticker, like ffs if that doesn't say something about the man what does?

I don't think I said parent's who used the spaces were selfish, or at least I didn't intend to, what I meant was, the type of parent's who think they've a God given right to a space at the door of a shop are typical of today's generation of selfish parents.

No, apologies that was not my intention, also if you read through my posts I only ever questioned why you had such a dislike for parents as that's how you came across, my rationale was you had an issues with parents or where bitter towards them, the man now looks bad but it was because a stronger word would get me another exile from the very very inconsistent moderators on this discussion baord.

So people will look at it and say "oh baby on board, now I won't drive into you!"
I don't see anything wrong with that.  You said it was just a tacky thing, fair enough.

Following on from ONeill's public toilet misfortune, here is one that has happened to us all.
You enter the public toilet to take a slash. You notice that it only has cubicles and no urinals. You go back and check the door to make sure you are not in the weemin's bogs. It's ok, you're in the gents. Anyway, you go into the cubicle and start taking the slash. The next thing you know is that you need to let out a fart. Twenty seconds before this, you heard someone go into the cubicle beside you. You think, "I'll just let it out gently, he'll never hear". You begin to relax the buttocks and from nowhere, your arse cheeks vibrate with maximum amplitude possible. The sound is almost deafening. You think to yourself, "Did he hear that?". You convice yourself that he didn't, "Maybe it just sounded worse than it was, to me". Anyway, you finish the slash and flush the bog. Out you go and begin to wash your hands quickly, hoping that you could escape before he comes out. No such luck! Out he comes and you try your best not to make eye contact. You can't help it though and you look up at him. He has a stupid smile on his face and says, "Better out than in". You smile and get out of there pronto.
Pure gutted!

Fecking Taxi drivers, not them all, just those fat ignorant ones who queue up in the ranks outside the Europa, the laws of the road dont apply to them, U turns, driving while on a mobile (No hands free, the other hand is holding a burger) then when a car stopped to drop someone off to go into the bus/train station they started beeping their horns, beep,beep f**king beeeeeeeeppppp, then out of the car boot came a wheelchair, beep beep they continued, even kept beeping when the woman was being placed in the wheelchair, ignorant b**tards

Speaking of the times not a-changin, people have awful problems with understanding what's going on. I spent a long time at the weekend trying to explain to somebody from London, who's not an idiot or anything, why it gets dark in London before it does here. "But when it's five o'clock here it's five o'clock in London too".

Another young lad I know (who, fair enough, is an idiot) thought it was an awful shame that we didn't warn New York about the attack on the twin towers, since we are five hours ahead and "knew about it before they did".

I used to have a Quantum Leap website. Someone emailed me after the 9/11 attacks and asked me to get in touch with Sam Beckett. He wanted me to get him to leap into one of the passengers and prevent the attacks.

He was an American.

Educated people who write "I would of....".  It's "I would have", or "I would've".

Australia's increasingly anal obsession with America and so-called "American culture".

English people who expect the Scots, Welsh and Irish to "support" them..."cos we're all British aren't we?"  Yeah sure, like fcuk we are.

White South Africans/Zimbabweans/Namibians who treat non-caucasian Australians like dirt.

Zimbabweans who say they are "Rhodesian".

Knobs who don't slow down coming up to roundabouts.

Knobs who don't signal at roundabouts.

18 y.o. spotty-faced little runts who rip up and down my street at night in their V8 6L cars that Daddy has paid for.

Bogan Aussies, period.

Irish people who say "oh, you're from Northern Ireland".  No you gulpin, I'm from Co.Derry.

Last orders at the bar, you've 10 mins to get a beer, then some gorilla masquerading as security pushes  you mid-drink out the door, saying you should leave....NOW!

I know this has been mentioned before, but people using apostrophes all over the shop indiscriminately. That thread on page 1 about "Drug's in the GAA" is doing my head in looking at it.

A basic starting point rule of thumb is use an apostrophe if someone or something owns something, as in Peter's car, Kevin's cocaine etc etc. OR if a letter is missing, as in You're an eejit, or It's great.

Thanks :D

The ads for TV licence inspectors - has anyone ever actually been visited by the seemingly mythical figures?

Typing something out on the computer and something pops up on screen unnoticed, resulting in a lot of the effort being wasted.

The Equality Authority.

Drivers going at 40mph in a 60mph zone, and refusing to move into the hard shoulder, preferring to have half of South Sligo on their tail, and causing frustration for all.

The quiz shite on UTV every night.

People who don't dip their headlights when meeting you on the road.

Feckers that take 20 minutes to parallel park on a main street. Causing a tailback to Ballydehob. ;)

It only takes 20 minutes when I am stubborn enough that I don't drive. Instead I wait for the gobshite behind me to sort it out and somehow manoeuvre out of the way so as I can park in the spot  ;)

Ziggy - there's an argument that that is the only time it might be a reasonable decision (based on the odds and potential return vs. layout) to do the lotto. Of course the lotto is still a tax on people who are bad at maths.

I think the GPA should be ashamed of themselves they are undermining everything the GAA stands for.  What they are asking for is Pay for |Play dressed up in fancy clothes.

They are an elitist Organisation who are only concerned with themselves and I firmly believe its a case of a few leading the many.

Don’t get me wrong i totally agree with players being treated well and looked after if they get injured but they are always looking for more and more.

Currently every season inter-county players in Derry get:

2 pairs of boots
2 full kits a season,
2 full sets of training gear. (1 wet and 1 normal)
1 rain jacket
1 zip up top
1 jumper
2 polo shirts
1 tracksuit
Home training Equipment
Free access to state of the art gym

All the above are official Derry gear from O neills with emblems and crests and this is only the gear I KNOW FOR CERTAIN they get!

Also they have access to a top class physio, team doctor dietician and heart screening facilities.

they receive meals after ALL games and on the way to away games

they get fed after every training

and they also get VERY GOOD rebates on their mileage expenses.

Again these are jut the things i KNOW FOR CERTAIN!!

for each national league game they receive 4 passes each allowing friends and family to gain admission to the games for FREE and the passes can be used for both hurling and football even if only involved in one code.

They receive at least 2 and sometimes more FREE tickets for ALL championship matches they are involved in

They receive 2 good tickets for the all Ireland final in their code (hurling or football) for FREE

Before the club championship begins they receive a pass allowing them to gain FREE entry to ALL championship matches within the county in EITHER code at ANY level
 
The above list was given to me when I asked a PRESENT COUNTY PLAYER from our club about conditions at inter-county level.

I don’t think anyone would begrudge them these things as the gear and medical farcicalities are a MUST and so are the mileage expenses and the meals.

The other stuff are added perks and again I would say Just right they are training very hard and giving a big commitment to Our County.

Looking at the list I would say our county players are fairly well looked after wouldn’t you? And this is just the example of our county alot of other counties like Armagh and Tyrone get even more gear and perks which again is fair enough.

But to ask for money and to make out that they are so hard done by and listening to some of their leaders you’d think some were hardly fit to feed themselves and on the way to financial ruin is an absolute myth and border line lie!! Nobodies making them play!!!

What ever happened to being proud to play for your county and pride in the jersey? That used to be enough to make people play for their counties.

Has Pride and honour fallen of the radar of the GPA in their obsession with self-worth and self-gain.
If pride in the jersey and being honoured to represent your County plus the list i have supplied aren’t enough to make individuals play for OUR county teams do we really want them to? The type of character who would undermine the very fabric of our great organisation to line his own pockets.   

I was also informed by the County player from my own Club that most county players don’t want to strike but are being openly pressurised to do so. Is this Democracy?

Its also evident the GPA are so far removed from the grassroots GAA and the supporters that they haven’t noticed that the vast majority are strongly against it, but why would they listen to us mere mortals?

Down Manager Ross Carr has the right idea:

If these prima donnas strike and refuse to play Each County should find a panel of players who will represent their counties for pride honour and the other perks i listed. There would be a stampede to trials and it would totally negate the strike and render their actions futile and meaningless.

We cannot let the elitist few hold the rest of us to ransom while they try to gain financially for doing what most TRUE Gaels consider an Honour and a privilege – PLAY FOR YOUR COUNTY

The new version of Excel on Windows Vista, especially when it won't make my files compatible with the 2003 type (and therefore most computers as of now), and when it corrupts existing files upon opening them, for some reason unknown.

f**kers who drive at 40-50mph, or even less, in 60mph zones, i.e. main roads, missed the first quarter of the game in Ballina last sunday after getting stuck behind these. It's particularly frustrating because a line of cars driven by people who aren't necessarily reckless but are left to take risks due to these, on the kind of roads where you have to think long and hard about making a move. E.g. you get stuck behind someone outside Tubbercurry heading for Sligo, expect to be stuck behind them til after Ballinacarrow, if traffic is steady heading the other way. As bad as speeding drivers, though obviuosly in a different manner, IMO.

Edit - I might add re the N17, the one place where you can get an opportunity to pass (at the Achonry creamery) also happens to be a spot where the Guards of fond of being located, in their usual 'catch the ordinary Joe and ignore the boy racers' task.

But if you go to a big supermarket expect to cue.  You go to the trouble to going to a big supermarket, looking for a space, parking, walking maybe 100yards to the shop, walk around the shop picking up your 5 items and then suddenly you're in a massive hurry and need special treatment?  Doesn't make sense to me. 
And some of us need to get out of the shop before the car's clamped.

No I don't see how it's selfish, I don't believe in people getting special treatment when it's not needed.
If a big supermarket is your local corner shop well that's an unfortunate inconvenience, just like my local shop being a small shop that doesn't have everything is an unfortrunate inconvenience.

Yes, into dundalk and superquinn if I'm around home though I suppose south armagh isn't my first home anymore. 
Why?

How can you change your first home?
Paint, wallpaper, put a new car port on, tar the drive, add a conservatory, surround sound in all rooms, wireless internet, - the list is endless?
Why? Are you planning a little renovation?

No but I didn't like my first home very much. I'm no longer living there so I wish I could say that somewhere else was my first home.

You know why yourself now don't you. I need to know which supermarkets to avoid don't I.
You and me would have some craic if we ever met at the shops, you'd be parked in the parent and toddler spot that I was looking for and then when I get to the express checkout with my spoilt child crying, what would be in front of me.... sure it would be you and your sausages and sweets  :D :D
Am I safe enough to shop in Carrick??

lol aye you'd be alright in Carrick are there many parent/toddler spaces there?
btw you'd go to a big supermarket in Carrick, when there's plenty of small shops, and expect to be served at an express checkout?  See what I mean puckoon, there's not much sense with that.

They might have some parent/toddler spaces at supervalu, I don't honestly know, but its alright I'd rarely have the boys with me if I was shopping in Carrick. I only go to the big supermarket because they have a better range of sweets ;)

It's not special treatment to unwrap the paper from the ham before they slice it! It's common sense!
And the one time I did say it to a girl in the shop (she hadn't the previous 3 times) you should have seen the look she give me!

  On the subject of Deli's, what about when they're making the sandwich and
 then wrap it up in the paper, cut it but don't cut it all the way through,
 you then have the half of the contents out over your knee trying to get the b**tard
 pulled apart, especially if it's sourdough bread. Like you POG, i have begun to ask for it
 to be cut all the way through, they look at you like you're growing horns >:(

Of course just upon loosening your sphincter (sp?) muslces and there is no way back, they all come galloping back into the office...nightmare!! Do you spray air freshener (but then they will know you are trying to mask a smell) or just leave it in the hope nobody goes to the toilet in the next 45 mins ???

On the whole deli thing, when you go to get a ham salad roll (for example), why oh why do they have to fill it to bursting point. So when you do sit down to eat it you will invariably end up with bits of tomato, lettuce, coleslaw, cheese, onion or whatever you are having yourself on your plate/paper bag/shirt.

The fun is only beginning!!
The breast pumps remind me of the when one of the lads came onto the job after hurricane Wilma and puts his milk in the fridge. The usual story at a fire station, everyone gets up in the morning for coffee and looks for the milk to put in the coffee, five minutes later your man comes back in again looks in the fridge and asks "where is his wife's breast milk" it was hilarious.

I wouldnt worry about it ziggy, I was standing at the fire exit door one night in a pub and was asked to move away because I was a fire hazard - I couldn't get him to understand that if there was a fire I'd be moving too!!!! and I had to go stand somewhere else.

People who put spoilers, large exhausts, sillys lights, and other mods on shite cars and then think its given them a liscence to drive like a lunatic around the place. Same people who put massive speakers in the same cars, playing the worst possible type of music as loud as possible as if everyone else on the street needs to here it. If you drive a shite car why would you draw attention to it by putting all that shite on it. I dont like to generalise but the people who tend to drive those piles of crap are skangers. scum of the earth in my eyes. There i said it.

Most of our gear grinders involve cars or filling stations, this one is no different, although they are purely incidental in this one.

You pull into a filling station, at the pump in front of you is this (lets be polite) very attractive young lady, long legs, high heels, short skirt, very sexy, but also very classy. You can't help but having a wee glance (and no more than that, not sitting their rubbing your thighs and licking your lips perving at her). Then as expected you get the look back that says "don't degrade me by looking at my legs".... anyway the point. If you have nice legs and go around in high heels and short skirt, expect to get some male attention, don't put a face on ya like a smacked arse, just cause some fella take a wee peak!!

I lived there for 3 years.

OMG! Something we can agree on! I knew we'd find something.
Why do women dress like that and complain when men look and come out with something like "I dress like this for me" aye right!

Speaking of smacked arse faces...

Ignorant cow in the shop - I seen her coming down the aisle with a load of bags and I'd me backet with my chocolate muffin and curlywurlys so I stood to the side to let her past - she walks straight into me and the bags get caught up in my basket - I says sorry - she put a face on her like a slapped arse and walked on!!

Hey, if u want to watch low quality, often interrupted, streams in a tiny corner on ur laptop that's up to u, personally I like to wait for it to be broadcast on de box so that I can see/hear what is really going on. If I'm interested in the shows above I may want to comment on what has/will happen the night before/after and see what others have to say, therefore I opened the threads.

This used to drive me mad initially in Phoenix. There is a large Hispanic (Mexican) population in Phoenix as you would expect, and they love their Hip Hop and Rap as much as the young black population of cities like LA, New York, Chicago etc. They used to drive around with the windows down and Tupac or whoever blaring out of it. I decided I'd put my own spin on it, just to see their reaction. It was great. I'll always remember the stunned look on one lad's face as I pulled up beside him at a traffic light, windows down and drowned out his Tupac with my 'Irish Jigs and Reels' $2.99 CD. :D

Yeah you drivin' me crazy with your boom box automobile

Now I'd love to see you lose the keys to that menace on four wheels

And those sub woofers hammerin' they're givin' my head a pain
It's either you or me if its me you see I'll jus' cop the plea...
hey judge... I'm insane
I'm sore insane

You and your boom box car
You and your boom box car
Ya gone and drove me too far
With your boom box car

With all this rap dap 'o' lappin' and those bass drums a flappin
At a million and twenty dee bees
It's got my eyeballs bleadin' and my eardrums pleadin'
I'm beggin' mercy, please, please, please
But what has got me so mad is when you tell me oh dad
Ya 'bout as square as you can be
Would ya think I's neater if I blew out your tweeters
With this 12 guage across my knees
Give up the keys

You and your boom box car
You and your boom box car
Ya gone and drove me too far
With your boom box car

You know that back in my day we'd drive our Chevrolets
And take our dates way up on Blueberry Hill
And with very straight faces say "the submarine race
Well they start about a quarter 'til"
But now you and your clowns just like to ride around town
With you volume knobs at ten
And the only thing bangin' in your station wagon
Is the beat bouncin' off your head
Ya might be brain dead soon be stone deaf

From your boom box car
Yes your boom box car
You gone and drove me too far
In your boom box car

Would never give clothes to those "charities" that drop the bags in through the letter box, don't know what half of them are up to, always give the old clothes directly to Oxfam in Dundalk myself.

Those ones selling the "charity" scratch cards. No way I would ever buy one of them, in most instances the charity only receives between 5% and 10% of the proceeds!!!! I have become that cynical that I will only donate to certain charities and normally do it directly.

So lets see that I understand you correctly; you have an issue with the fact that I approve of allocated parking spaces for mothers and toddlers and that they shouldn't be used by lazy over weight people to run in and get their sugar quota for the day, or is the fact that I don't approve of slapping or hitting a toddler like some over powering bully; or is it indeed that I think it unsafe to push plastic bags through peoples doors where a child playing in their own home may come to some harm by picking them up and putting them on their head; or is it indeed all three, please I'd love an answer.

You think because you're a parent you're so important and more entitled to a space at a shop door ahead of a disabled person or someone who's not able to walk the length of a car park, unlike you with your prams and your pushchairs.
Likewise, you'd happily leave disciplining your children to some other poor soul, a babysitter, a shop assistant, or teacher because you want the easy way out.

No there are disabled spaces and a disabled person in my opinion has every right to park in an allocated space be that mother and toddler / disabled; it's only his holiness gives out about too many disabled spaces.  Some lazy oaf I think shouldn't hence in many shopping centres these ignorant fuckwits are being clamped.  As for disciplining a toddler by hitting and slapping them; a lazier methodology of discipline hasn’t been invented, don't think, don't explain just lash out and strike; this method simply gives an adults a chance to bully and terrorise very young infants whom they are meant to be helping and protecting.

There's parent/toddler spaces at shops because lazy, selfish parents like you complain and yap that you can't walk your children a couple of hundred yards never mind those parents that might have to walk a couple of miles with the shopping and children.

I think you'll find there are parent and toddler spaces as shopping centres realised that for a parent with a few toddlers and a shed load of shopping, it is a bit of a hazard negotiating a shopping centre car park, especially as people drive round these like they were in the dodgems; and especially on their way out.   As for parents who have to walk miles with the kids and shopping – I do that weather permitting, and guess what I come out the front door and don’t have to negotiate the minefield that is a shopping centre car park; still can’t wait to your first post yapping about being clamped.

Orange sound shit. Vodafone just ring me if I have a voicemail. If I miss the call, they text me. When I ring to listen, no adverts, straight to the voicemail.

Orange are the biggest load of shit! Never again!

It went through a phase where when people called me it'd go straight to voicemail, without ringing!!! the person would leave a message.
I would never be shown I'd a missed call I would never be told I've a voice mail message - when I rang voicemail the message wouldn't even be there!!

Now it's going through this phase of only showing me the odd missed call but storing the message and not telling me there is one so I ring it this evening because someone told me they'd left a message to discover I've seven - 3 of which are from someone connected to work giving out that he's called me x y and z times and I've never got back to him (that's from over a week ago)!!!
I'm going to have to ring him tomorrow and let on I've been away on holidays or something!  ffs

(hope he doesnt read the board - or start asking me about my holiday)

Never again!

People, especially "public" people in Ireland, like media commentators, news script writers and such, who refer to the army or, say the government as "the Irish army" or "the Irish government". What do they think? That if they said  "he served in the army for many years" we'd wonder what army they meant? The Chinese army, maybe? You'd never hear the BBC refer to "the British army". In fact they even refer to their sporting events as "the Grand National", "the Open", etc.

And not only that, but when RTE news is reporting British news, they'll refer to "the queen" or "the House of Commons" instead of the queen of the UK, or whatever. What's going on there?

Im the same at home. We just got it into the new irish produce store over here, and I was back on it like crazy. 4/5 bottles a day. Then I figured out that it was the lucozade that was cutting the arse off me. Ive now put myself down to about 3 bottles a week.
Was off the coke too for a long time, was drinking the diet, but recently Ive been back on the full sugar stuff. Its padding the waistline.

Not really costly. 5 Two Litre bottles is around £5 or £6, but strangely enough I have gained about a Stone since I stopped drinking it, I eat a lot more now.
5 or 6 pound a day is a right few quid.

Pepsi max has no sugar or calories.

I never drank tea or coffee in my life either.

I was dragged out shopping today and I'LL TELL YOU WHAT PISSES ME OFF!!
Sitting in traffic!
Not finding a parking space!
People who take a half a hour to pull the car out of a space while you're sitting waiting on it!
People who take a half a hour to park! (that includes your own driver)
People who won't pull into a parking space because there's a car behind them! what is that about?!
People parking over the white lines on a space!
Shopping trollies!
Push chairs!
People not getting out of my road!
People bumping into me!
People standing wth push chair/shopping trolley and being totally oblivious to the fact that they're causing major disruption!
The cleaning woman who walked down the floor with a 5ft wide brush and near knocked me down because she was texting!
Shops having every size only the size I want!
Clothes arranged in the way that if you walk past them they'll all fall down!
The handles on plastic bags ripping through your hand!
Losing the person who has dragged you out, walking around for a good half hour looking for them when they will not answer the f**king phone!

I think that's it

It's amazing how much a person can change in a year.

Its a nightmare tryin to score a goal from 25metres or more and win a game to progress. 4 f**king times i scored from 24 METRES! And i hate the fact you dont know how far youve scored from till half or full time -so you dont know whether to relax and keep ball to ensure the win after scoring a long ranger as your not totally sure if it was from 25metres or not or whether to keep going for long rangers and maybe get caught out at the back.

The weather, or this week's at any rate. Awful.
Traveller graves, obscene montrosities scattered in cemeteries like our local one, with so many smaller headstones on the grave as well. Stick out like sore thumbs amongst the normal graves. And of course any time there is a funeral the town's businesses have to shut down, and Gardaí are on duty in droves. Why do we have to tolerate these people?

The amount of people who feel that its ok to abandon their cars whilst taking up two parking spaces is incredible. It always seems to be drivers with really expensive cars or big 4X4's who think it's ok to do this. It took me ages getting a parking space. Feck, I hate Christmas shopping, doing it online is the way to go!!  :-\

I quit that world tour shite on the third mission -I think it's win the game and have no off sides - I don't know how many f**king times I was winning the game and in the last five minutes some **** goes off side!

If you pause the game will it not tell you if you've scored from 25 meters.

It depends on how you wear scarfs.  I wouldn't wear one myself but i think if a man has one wrapped around his neck with a wee bit tucked in he can get away with it - but just wrapped around once and hanging down is just wrong!

I love wearing gloves when its cold, but they are just very fecking impractical. You either take them off before you go into the shop, or you struggle with the plastic fivers while some fecker behind you with a basketfull of cookstowns finest is calling you a f**king ponce. Better off just not wearing them at all.

  That's a tough situation there Puck, living that close to them would be bad enough
  never mind the generosity bit, not likely to change anytime soon either with baby Puck
  now in the equation. How are house prices holding in Reno?

Its a great time to buy, thats for sure. Prices are pretty low right now, friends who are selling cant get rid of their houses. We are just about a year away from having downpayments and mortgage money. Its a little bit like having 20p and the price of a loaf just dropped from 3pounds to 2 pounds. :-[

They arent bad folks, and in some ways we are very lucky to have them, they just own the house we are living in, and its right next door to them. Its very everybody loves raymond esque between me and her father in law. Just different personalities. My wife was always very dependent on them and is struggling to cut the apron strings. What can ya do!? :-X

  Not a lot, a happy woman means a happy man in my experience, don't see a big change
  in the housing market in the next 12 months so you might luck out if south shore is anything to

Didn't get stuck behind this guy, but had to stay behind him for the laugh...

Was walking over into town from the Odyssey car park yesterday morning and this fella in front has the Ipod in. He obviously thinks he's letting out some wee silent ones but you should have heard the noises coming from this fella's hole!! Was funny enough when me and my mate were walking behind him but was 10 times better when he did it when there was about 10 of us waiting at the traffic lights!! Great laugh to start the day!

(Sorry that doesn't grind my gears buh had to tell you's about that one!!)

Square if you ever come to the States you should go and shop at a "Super Walmart" to experience the clientele. Very similar to what you described above but the majority would be armed and let out of the trailer park for the day... horrible f**king place.

He ducks one way and then the other and can't get by with the oncoming pedestrians. Finally he loses his cool...
