What pisses me off?

People who drive at 40mph in a 60 limit on dry, quiet roads when there are no overtaking spots.

People hogging the middle or outside lane of a motorway, taking ten miles to overtake one vehicle. Get out of the f*** way.

People who pull out from lane 1-2 or 2-3 at around 55mph and don’t seem to have any perception at all of the speed of the traffic which is just about to pass them and has to either slow down or make a rapid lane change.

I am so pissed off with the awful standard of driving on todays roads that I often prefer to get the ficking train!

Oh and the green lentil eating brigade piss me off too.

I got told I was a “disgrace” in a petrol station not that long ago, when some no doubt vegan saw me put £200 worth of super unleaded in my 21 year old, 4.4 litre V8 15MPG Range Rover, before they no doubt went on to pay for their “plant based” baguette.

Oh. And petrol stations. The morons that pull up to a pump. Take forever ficking around to fill up. Then unstrap about 4 kids, and go into the shop with them. Spend 6 hours buying lattes and their weekly shop in the attached M+S, saunter back to the car, carefully organise it all into the boot. Spent another hour strapping in their offspring. Finally crawl off the forecourt, so I can bung some petrol in and pay at the pump (all within about 3 minutes).

What else pisses me off?

People being told to list their “pronouns”. My names James (use it) and I’m clearly a bloke and therefore a him. If others feel the need to stipulate their pronouns, that’s a matter for them - but don’t force me to do it.

Doctors surgeries piss me off too. I’ve had to use them a lot recently, and it infuriates me that you can’t book in advance. “You have to call at 8am on the day” … yeah, and sit in a queue for an hour in hold and then be told there are no appointments left and to try again (and no doubt get the same answer) tomorrow.

What also pisses me off is the camera phone wielding brigade. People film in all sorts of places, I don’t want to be in your bloody videos or social media pages when I’m out socialising.

Political correctness. It’s gone mad.

The attitude towards men.  Since that monster PC in the met committed his horrendous crimes, it seems that pretty much every man in society is considered a rapist or murderer and will use “violence against women and girls”. Most single blokes I know now are too scared to even say hello to a woman in public for fear of being tarred with that brush. (Can I even use that expression in 2023?)

I sent an email a while ago (not at work) and was challenged by the recipient because I said something was “in black and white” (very obviously meaning it was written down in back ink on white paper).

I was told it was inappropriate and had “racial connotations”.

The world has absolutely lost its way, and I’m frankly sick of it!

Soon be twelfth night and still have xmas cards not delivered yet…..

What do you do with cards that arrive to late!



We found the postal strike the ideal opportunity to cease sending at least 30 cards to people that we hardly ever/ never see anymore, hopefully they will now do the same.

If that's all just dealing with people out and about on a day off, work must be horrific.

I had an interview at Surrey Police and failed it because they had to explain what 'diversity' meant. Apparently allowing people to be whatever they wanted to be and leave them to it wasn't correct. :-X

And as for the doctor...  >:(

That made me smile James. I suspect many of us share most if not all of those. For years ( to Mrs V’s disgust) I have been pulling a face or otherwise photobombing ( or whatever the phrase is) when people are taking a photo without asking do you mind being on it.

That's what you get for buying into the Comrade Bezos world order.

And if you think I am being cynical, think again. Amazon, China and Faceachebook are the end of the world. All this woke BS is a mere distraction and we're too stupid to even notice.

Buy all the cheap Chinesey shit that you can, whilst you can.

It’s of no coincidence that as Amazon have their new Lectric vans delivered the company that makes them, Rivian, is owned by by Amazon and Ford. Ford need their own Lectric commercial vehicles to fail in order to bankroll their investment in Rivian.

My birthday was Dec 12th, my card arrived yesterday from my mate, who lives across town. Seems that all post around here goes off to Peterborough for sorting now that all the local sorting offices have gone. They talk about food miles, what about post miles.  ;D

I was 22 then. I’m 39 next week, my view of the world is very different…..

Al - don’t bother joining the police. It’s gone to woke, politics orientated dog shit.

When I joined you could actually be a copper. Now big brother is everywhere and there are too many people prepared to shit on you to get themselves ahead.

West Midlands police have introduced body cams for officers which the high rankers can monitor remotely.

Most forces have policies that body cams go on at every single interaction. Which removes the ways and means act for dealing with stuff.

The workforce is also very young, In experienced, easily offended, and generally shoddy.

Stay in aviation, with any luck I’ll see you there sometime :y
