    Sound advice that. I’ll need to work on my aim though definitely, the last place I want to upset somebody is a men’s toilets.

    I don’t want ‘He lived how he died, full of ****’ on my gravestone.

    Good man. A tip… best to use the one at the far end. You don't want anyone pushing past behind you (or in front).

    Planned road closures that are advertised to start at a specific time but the road is closed 10-15 minutes before the specified time.

    Drivers in the incorrect lanes especially when there have been indications about which lane is for each potential direction.

    Also remember the unspoken piece of etiquette

    If possible leave at leave at least one urinal/gap for one person whenever possible.

    Is this a PC plot to make everyone the same so we have to queue up for the toilets like women do?.
    Who cares? So you see a few less penises?

    I dont anyway because I dont look sideways at other people's.
    Instead you just see p1ss all over the toilet and the floor, and sometimes have to clean it off the toilet seat when you need to sit down.
    Hope you enjoy doing all that and queueing up - I dont.

    Actually you make valid points (although I never poop while I'm out so sitting down isn't an issue).

    Can I add 'suburbs' to this room 101esque gears grinding! London suburbs especially.

    Been living in the suburbs for a few years now - only way to get a garden beyond being mega rich - and suburbs are just sooo boring. Every entertainment facility is knocked down for flats and car parks. There is no outdoorsy life, just concrete assembly-line life. And stuck here due to commuting time and family ties.

    Love the film "the 'burbs" though.

    Aye agree, just be careful not to fall into the trap of doing the opposite and moving to the country one day.

    Next thing you know your ringing old friends begging them to come over for a weekend, 'please, you'll love it here, please, please come over there is so much to do here, there's a horse in the field by us, there's a fair coming soon, Paddy McGuiness is guest starring, not Peter Kay though but Paddy is funny too, so please come...for the love of'

    Stupidity

    I hate stupidity

    Like my daughter who in 5 years has had 8 iPhone screens and just got it fixed and STILL hasn’t got a protector and has dropped it twice today on the carpet. She once dropped it and smashed it getting out the car from picking it up from the repair shop.

    And then her Mum is outside hoovering the car with the car radio on..... she obviously forgot the “why the **** won’t the car start” episode after the last time she did it.

    The women in my house are stupid *****

    The ironing mountain collapsed;no one heard my screams and it's taken me most of the afternoon to dig my way out.

    The way you buy furniture these days,nothing's ever in stock.
    You hand over six hundred quid and three hours later they send you a text informing you that your new chairs will be delivered between sometime before St Patrick's Day.

    Between the hours of 6am and 9pm.

    Maybe the sarcasm of "exactly the same furniture as everyone else" didn't come across!

    Did you like the lamp?. Don't you hate it when you have something you just want to break so you can replace it with something better? The amount of temporary cheap furniture or appliances I have purchased while looking for what i want that ends up staying for years blighting my house...

    (yes i know there is a difference between a bulb and lamp - just going on a tangent!)

    It was for my son's bedroom,he was in junior school when I bought it and eight inches taller than me when I finally got fed up waiting for it to die.

    I bought a new fridge freezer in April,I'm already wondering which of my unfortunate relatives I can donate it to.

    there's nothing wrong with the furniture it;s the soul destroying trip round the whole place that destroys the human spirit within a matter of hours

    I don't think I've ever bought any furniture from IKEA,Mr kas usually has a massive tantrum in there and has to be placated with chocolate raisins.

    Don't follow the arrows ayles, don't do it.

    I have an IKEA nearby, which means nearly all other furniture shops in the area have been put out of business and everyone has the same furniture or a slight variation. There are only so many LACK tables and KALLAX shelves i can see without wanting to vomit.

    We have only a 'mini-ikea' shop in one of the local malls… takes five minutes maximum to stroll around and see everything twice.

    There's a coffee bar outside, where we often have a cuppa… we see hardly anyone go in the place, and hardly anyone comes out with a purchase.

    The giant hardware places are a different prospect, though… huge places that you could put a couple of aircraft hangars inside… uncountable long aisles of tools, paints, fittings, things, doings, whatsits, doohickeys… grinning overalled smartarses forever showing off their superior knowledge if you ever ask them anything.

    Our nearest branch is Cardiff,we'd more than likely have suffered a not very amicable parting of the ways by now if it was any closer.
