Re: The micro-RANT thread

uhm it would be nice if it were, the ride is along a beautiful stretch next to the lake so all you generally hear is that magical sound that a large body of water makes, a few birds tweeting, the quack of a duck and now my complaining dog.

Here is a picture of her before she ruins a morning.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

Pretty much every day when I drive to or from BSL airport, there is a gentleman (a different one each time, to be clear) that has decided to stop the car and answer the call of nature in the plain sight.


That road is 3 km long and only goes to the airport. Even if you have never been to BSL airport, it's quite safe to assume that it is likely to have appropriate facilities. Exactly HOW micro must one's bladder be that it cannot handle an extra minute or two?

That road is actually in France, & so it is normal behaviour. I was shocked when I was 13 years old, and my host urinated against the village wall, but I am used to it now.

Parents who purchase pushchairs that are oversized and then occupy most of the "pushchair" space on the buses and trams!

Re: The micro-RANT thread

Chavs in Fast Food joints who sit for hours on end when you are looking for a seat to eat your food.


Discourteous people on trams that occupy 4 seat compartments with their luggage.

Consider yourself lucky, Land of Leather really wasn't what I was expecting.

Maybe not polite, but very, very helpful in the long run.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

Well, people taking too much space on a crowded metro.

The metro was quite packed today (only one car), possibly as the weather was so good. This lady gets in and sits in exactly the same pose of this model in this link (thus sprawling across two seats- http://imgur.com/HrPX8OK), keeping her bag on the seat. No one asked her to shift - but I also suppose she gave off such vibes.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

People who answer "for sale" or "to give away free" ads with phrases such as: "I'll take that," "I want that one," "the name-of-object is for me," and "I'll fetch that on Wednesday evening" etc., with no pleases, no thank-yous and seemingly no concept that the seller or giver has a life, too, and ought to be treated with a minimum of good manners.
Thank you for letting me post this, my very first micro-rant.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

You lot may shout alot at me and others about our smoking habits at bus stops but today i got a whiff of something that was worse...

REDBULL.

I don't know why, but that smell is horrific. Those people should be banned from bus stops and railway station platforms etc. They are polluting the air with their horrible smelly drink breath.

(tongue in cheek...)
