Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

Pity pointless trip to Dublin for the Rebels yesterday.

The 2007 All-Ireland championship really grinds my gears.

BT's helpline. Spent 20mins chatting to a woman in India called "Mary". All she kept saying was 'hello!'

ARGH!


Maybe she couldn't understand the Tyrone accent   :P
Prehaps.

The previous one asked for my telephone number. The last digit is 9 and he couldn't understand me, so I said 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9. I was then informed that 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 isn't a real number!


 


     Speaking of the Tyrone Accent, some of you that live over here may attest to this,
 The number f**king 8 why is it so hard to understand this number???
 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
 but 8 does actually sound like f**king 8  AAARRGGHHH
The kicker is that my Home phone # has two of the b**tards...... i need to change it ::)

I be over and back to England a bit and the amount of English people (I'm sure it'd be the same with any nationality) that will not even try to understand your accent and what you are saying is unreal!!!
They will hardly wait until you're finished speaking before they say "what"! And you have to repeat the same thing about three times before they can pick it up!! FFS, we are speaking the same language! 

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.

The best was couple of months ago, in a bar in London (they're the worst) my woman went to order food and only had about 4 words out of her mouth when she was asked if she spoke english!  :D  :D  :D

and there's this one I'd have to speak to regular and I swear to God! every single thing I say she says "sorry" - EVERY SINGLE THING!
she's not even embarrassed about this! "sorry" aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh

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.

Would it not be quicker to boil the kettle?

Big hairy-arsed farmers from Kerry breaking wind while their eating (devouring) a feed of cabbage and bacon in Fagan's bar in Drumcomdra. Especially while I'm trying to enjoy a pint of Guinness and chat up a nice-looker from Derry.
