Yep they're not known for their kindness ;)

Not blaming the woman 'entirely' but when your sons a major drug dealer stuff like this can occasionally happen ! If you dont want your salon burnt down try and make sure your kids not a drug dealer !

This new version of Firefox where the colour of the tabs are the exact same blue colour as the bar at the top of the browser. It all looks to have blended together into one ugly mess.

That animated gif of somebody playing a guitar on the Paypal website. Seems to slow the whole page down while it loads. Yes my PC is far from up-to-date but it shouldn't have to be for a simple site that is otherwise speedy.

Buyers on ebay who send questions 10 minutes before an item ends when it's been listed for 7 days...especially when they send about 3 in a row because I haven't responded :roll: . Some people have to be at work you know.

Stepping in as a supervisor at work when required but getting my plans overturned by higher-ups anyway. Seriously, I just can't be bothered with interference and the feeling of being undermined.

My sister in law.
Seriously her selfishness is unbelievable, how she can be so different to my missus confuses me on a daily basis

Taking my four year old son for a walk down by the riverside on a very small dirt path way and out of nowhere some chav scum on a small knackered looking dirt bike flying up and down both bank sides. Scared the hell of my boy :evil: if it was not for the fact he was with me and making sure he was safe I would of clothes lined the little sod. Did ring the police though even if it does no good as no doubt they will of disappeared by the time anyone turns up.

People on ebay selling used car parts in awful condition (especially pieces of trim/bodywork) and wanting just as much for them as brand-new parts.

Fair enough. I hadn't actually noticed there were words on any of those pages, maybe they realised its not worth the effort? ;)
