I enjoy a bit of halloween bonfire & fireworks as much as the next child but when the fireworks continue on thru til bout midnight and after when i'm tryna get some kip well that just really grinds my f**king gears (all 5 including reverse) !
Would that not be 6 then or is your car from the 80's ?
Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

Was sick and tired of the bangers and fireworks myself last night.
One bright point from last night though was the mother of one of the kids who called to our door was wearing a Wonder Woman's outfit :o

when you are trying to be a courteous driver and you are letting someone out and they take a half hour to perform some ridiculous manouvre.

absolute wrecks my head, happened twice this week (both women) they just dont seem to react to the opportunity for around a minute and then flute around reversing and going forward in tiny movements
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

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!

GRRRRRRR...I could go on.
To find his equal an Irishman is forced to talk to God!

On the posh cnuts, those teenage girls who are "loike sooo not going to do that"
Its bad enough if you come across them on the 'Daniel day luas' but in Navan!! for the love of God, how the hell can you live in Navan talk "loike" that. Was stuck in a queue in extravision last night with two of them behind me  >:(
and it was "Oh my God" this and "loike" the other or "Oh does she work here, I soo don't loike her, shes weird"
If you live in the counties of Louth, Meath, Cavan or Monaghan the natural accent is pure bogger, now get with the program bitches (rant over).

I get the train to work (Belfast) the people with no manners what so ever who would almost tr**p over the top of you to get on the train first, they don't even let the other passengers off first. Women and men both at it. Some cu*t is gonna get a hefty shoulder before next friday as this will be my last day working in Belfast

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
