Got this idea from a TV show called 'Grumpy Old Men' and it's counterpart 'Grumpy Old Women' where middle-aged folk (celebrities) just rant on about all the daft things of the world which when I watch I agree with almost everything they've said and I ain't old (chronologically), before I start a few guidelines

Don't use this to flame other members
Just let it flow and rant about ANYTHING

UPDATE: Don't use this topic to drag sh*t in from other topics that were either locked or you got warned in, therefore wipe your feet before you enter.

 

To start off with, why oh why in the name of the wee man, is it that when you ask for 'cream' with your coffee or tea in cafes and small resturants you get this tiny little plastic pot thing with a tiny little drop and that's all it is of something which might have resembled cream, execpt it's never been near a cow in its life. And what do you get for it, something which only colours the coffee, does it flavour it... no, does it cool it down a lttle to stop it burning your tounge... no. And to top it off why do you get a little shard of plastic to stir it with, and no doubt if you've got it in one of those polystyrene cups you'll try frantically hard to stir it enough to disolve the sugar and burst a hole in the bottom of the cup

 

Update 1 (20 April 2014): Added new rule.

Whatever happened to those vending machines where you got a paper cup and a selection of ice or no ice? You could even get water or sparkling water for about 25 cents. They were around in the eighties and most had died off by the late nineties. Damn I miss the nineties.

Which brings me to my next point: how are people going to refer back to this decade. The singles? The double O's? This decade has no feel whatsoever. It's a decade where just a bunch of sh*t happens and no one really cares.

More and more these days, when I'm driving somewhere, I seem to keep getting stuck behind people who need to virtually stop before taking a corner. Now, this may not seem like a big deal to most people, but it's a bloody big deal to me. Don't these people realise that every time I drop down into 1st gear and have to work my way back up through the gears, It means I am spending more money than I have to to get where I am going. These fools should be made to pay me compensation!

I just turned 18 so I guess that makes me old. tounge.gif Anyhow, how hard is it to put your turn signal on when you want to change lanes or make a turn? I just don't get it. It pisses me off whenever I see this, especially if someone does it right in front of me. The worst part is I don't think the police in our area enforce using turn signals.

....and that p*sses me off even more as a pedestrain, you're on a road with no pedestrain crossings and there is a road leading off it and its between you and a car, this car comes along and can see you clearly, what does the idiot do, turn off down the road without using their signals... grr, you could have crossed the road long ago but because that idiot hasn't used their signals you get delayed, and this always happens when you're in a rush.

What else grates me, kids these days and kids TV programs that find it OK to use the word bu*ger, ffs have they looked it up in a dictionary, it means forced a*se-sex, sodomy for crying out loud... well you would do if happened to you. I got stuck watching Harry Potter and I thought this was for kids and one of characters was going on about these little flying ball things being 'nasty little bu*gers', I mean forced a*se-sex isn't the kind of thing kids should be shouting about.

So did I.

First guy to talk about this forums.

Whatever happened to the gang scene? It's obsolete now, broken, and pretty boring. What can we do to make it better and more exciting?

I can answer that question. I refer to the 00's as the Naughties.
(Even though, they are not)

Okay my ramble.

I just wired up my new LCD TV. it sits on a unit. Under the unit i have a VHS recorder / DVD player / Cable receiver / Home cinema system (wires for 5 speakers and 1 bass speaker) & Playstation 2

When i set it all up. The wires were neat and tidy. 3 weeks later, they are all tangled together. I have not been behind there since i put it together. Electrical field gone mad?

*EDIT*

second guy to talk about the forums. Why do we not have funny spammers anymore? Stuff92, you was a god of laughter!

Even though my date doesnt show it ive been here for awhile (never bothered to register just checked the site and forum for cheats anuj_cop.gif ) but I say screw all those new members. Im tired of all the 1-2-3 month members coming in and flaming everything that doesnt involve them. Its the freakin internet so just chill the f*ck out and leave it be. You people really annoy me when I go into the General Chat and see all your stupid asses spamming up everything with useless flame.

MY friend bought ps3 and they are only selling for 650 on ebay now since its after christmas. You are out of luck irloading. Everything is stock piled after christmas. They cant wait to get rid of the PS3s in the back.

Oh and Screw movie threatres that card me every time i go to see an R rated movie.

I've never been carded going to the movies, mind you, the theatres really don't give a f*ck, especially when you're sporting a goatee.

However, I'd say screw the theatres for ass-f*cking my wallet when I go to get food from the concession stand. Slimy bastards charging $3.00 for a god damn bottle of water.

Riding on the service bus lately I have come across alot of the old people who ride on it and my God they are complete bastards, they seem to think the world revolves around them and because they are older and "wiser" people should care about them more than anyone else. Take 2 examples from just two days ago, I caught the service bus to my local town centre and on the way down we stopped at a bus stop where two old ladies were waiting, both of them got on and one of them sat in a seat straight away but the other one was slowly walking towards her seat and my God this woman was slow but she was about to take a seat when suddenly the bus started moving again and she wobbled a bit and then she said "Oh they should wait till everyone has sat down." Jesus Christ woman we gave you 10 f*cking minutes to sit down angry.gif

Not only that but on the way back I was standing at the front of the bus just as we were pulling into my stop and 3 people were waiting to get on at the stop including an old lady, as soon as the bus stopped and the doors opened this old lady just dived onto the bus, I mean, it's common sense to let the people on the bus get off first. Bastards.

Wow that's one of my longest posts in a while.


Oh yeah and I hate peopled who walk slowly, I can't bloody stand people who walk slowly!

Oooo, especially when there are groups of slow walkers in a confined space, that have to walk slowly in a line wide enough that you have to barge through them.

I coined a term for this, beak of justice. Where you get so frustrated that you want to peck their brains out. Preferably the loudest one.

God I love this topic already. I can just let everything out.

I rate topic Good. icon14.gif icon14.gif

People in movie theaters that use their cellphone the entire time to text do stupid sh*t just pisses me off. You are there to see a movie not pay $6 to sit there and piss people off when your louder than everything ringer goes off when you receive a text message. There is nothing else in the world that makes me madder.

Why does it cost me 75p to get a normal bottle of water, but 1 to get the same amount but with a 'sports cap' which is just the same but doesn't screw.

movie theaters are getting more obnoxious. it used to be you would sit down, the previews would start, and then the movie you paid to see would. Now at my theater, it goes something like this:
the lights go dark about 10 minutes late, and the screen comes on, with a message about using the "Exit" doors in case of fire or an emergency (no sh*t? i had planned to sit there and burn to death...). Next is the "moviephone.com!" commercial featuring that old guy, who no one cares about anymore. When thats done wasting 2 minutes of my valuable time, theres a coke commercial, and a cell-phone commercial, then finally a commercial for either the army, marines or the navy. At long, long last, the previews start. previews have also gotten even more obnoxious, since this theater at least, no longer shows those fancy green slides at the beginning of each preview, so it's not always clear where one ends, and one begins. When the previews are over, theres a combined commercial, for telling people how good the theaters popcorn and refreshments are, and that its rude, and illegal to talk on your cell phone or use a "recording device" to pirate the movie. The one about how its "rude" to talk on your phone seems a bit silly. i prefer a system where the usher stands at the front of the theater for the duration of the movie, and if someone's phone rings, they get 3 seconds to turn it off/disable it in whatever manner necessary, before the usher comes over and disables their face, with his flashlight. 3pm movie? i'll be there when it starts @ 3:35.

Yes I hated this on escalators in NZ. Everyone just stood there being lazy jackasses, can't they bloody walk up! And i'd feel too rude to just barge through 'em as Kiwis are patient, but in London if anyone stands on an escalator people just shove 'em out of the way which I like  biggrin.gif . Oh god I love England already.

...and one of the things i seriously hate about going in public, is people who walk past me on the escalator. The escalators move so i DONT HAVE TO! thats why i stand dead center in the middle, with my body tensed up and one hand on each side of the rails. and i wait until the stair i'm on is damn near out of view before i step off, suckers devil.gif

I rarely go to the Cinema these days, not only because the nearest one to me is a 30 minute round drive and is a pain in the butt to get into due to the road system around it, but the last time I did go, which in itself was after a long time of not going, there was about 30 minutes of adverts before even the previews started and then.... another 30 (well actually 5 minutes but it felt like it) minutes of adverts then there was a 5 minute pause before they decided to play the film. If I'd known that I could have gone home made a pot noodle, a cup of coffee, had a poop, then made my way back for the film started. Then you get the Jackass who decides to talk the whole way through... you paid a fortune to get in and now you just want to sit a talk to your mates.... p*ss off and go hang around a shopping mall, or shut up and watch the film

Another thing thats gets my goat, idiots who go Comedy Clubs and Gigs purely with the intent to heckle the artist/performer, I'd happily slap them over the head repeatedly until they passed thier ticket onto some who'd appreciate the ticket, it's even worse when the event is a sell-out and Mr Tw*t-face got one of them

I may only be fourteen but I have some things that piss me off.

Walmart parking lots. I mean, FFS! Jesus, trying to get a spot there is murder.

PEOPLE WHO TAKE BABIES TO THE MOVIES (Seeing as we're talking about movie theaters). I mean, you know it's going to cry, so WHY F*CKING BRING IT?! Atleast let the REST of us enjoy the movie.

People who don't have good grammer/puncuation (And now the flamewar starts). I mean, come on people. It's grammer and puncuation. It's not f*cking rocket science. I mean, I don't even know most of the abreviations people use. When I get on a forum, I want to see "Wow, that's really cool! Nice find!", not "0mg tat iz da berst thimg 3vr!!!!!111!!!11".

Since we are on a bit of a Cinema theme here's one for you. I went to see Casino Royale on New Year's Eve, movie was supposed to start at 4PM but instead it was half-past until it started. All because we had to sit through commercial after commercial and often it was the same commercial. Every time you thought the movie would start another commercial, and everytime you heard the 25 odd people sigh in annoyance. In all that there were 2 previews, if I am going to sit waiting 30 mins I would prefer it be watching upcoming movies trailers. To top it off the tickets cost 15 bucks each, why am I paying so much when the Cinema is getting sh*t loads of money from advertising various products!

Thing that annoys me (also about cinemas) is that they raise the price on drinks, 1.50 for a bottle of coke but in the shops nearby it's only 70p. What's more, the nearest cinema to me doesn't let you bring in drinks from outside the cinema.

And whenever I go to see a film, there always seems to be a bunch of kids sitting on the back row f*cking around, not even watching the film and just disrupting everyone else. Why the hell did they pay money to just f*ck around?
