after all the years of suffering being called a miserable old bar-steward by mrs zz , I am finally rejoicing that she has come round to my way of thinking. the source of this wonderment?... a newly found joint loathing of the foul phenomenon of otherwise seemingly intelligent individuals starting a sentence with the word "so"!!!! if you have been asked , "how do you propose to re-attach that button"? , or , "what method would you use to distribute seed in your garden" , fair enough but otherwise , nooooooooooo! other current hot favourites are "yoofs" with their kecks hanging out the top of their trousers and newly qualified drivers with a green p plate (clearly designating pillock) who refuse to commit to crossing a roundabout without having received a written invitation at least a fortnight in advance! what gets your hackles up?

Totally agree.

Unless of course...
  • they are Autistic like me and looking you in the eye is for some reason to us is extremely unsettling. I've had to learn to look people in the eye as it doesn't come "natural" to me, the problem then became that I stared at them in my attempts to overcome my desire to look away. I've found that counting to 5 and then looking away and coming back to eye contact seems to do the trick, but the downside to that is I am not fully concentrating, as I would be if I was allowed to look away.
  • they are from a culture where not looking into your eyes is considered rude.
  • you are butt ugly, then who can really blame them.
  • you are so holy that to do so would blind them.
  • you are so holy that to do so would blind them.
  • there are so scared of offending you due to your high grump standing.
