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?

Thats just your age Brian - I bet you have also joined the club that makes you forget what you went upstairs for just 10 seconds after you made the first move. Gets to us all eventually

My application for full membership of the GOGS includes 2 of my favourite pet driving grumps:

1. Motorway middle lane owners club members

2. People who dawdle along on empty roads (especially out of town) and then flash you when you overtake them. What are they on about ? I reckon they are graciously acknowledging to you that they are incapable of increasing their brain activity to match the road speed........other opinions are available

If these aren't enough I have a lifetimes alternative grumps...........

Whats wrong with wanting to leave something you didn't sign up for ? When we went into the Common Market it expanded from 6 to 9 countries and life was a bit easier for travel, exchange of goods, etc. I liked it at the time and voted for it.

I did not vote for a 'community' that seems to have about 50 countries (some of which were not even countries when we went in), makes rules and laws that the UK seems to be the only country that takes notice of them, lets us hand out money to 'people from member countries' many of whom seem to send it back to where they came from instead of spending it here, pay loads of tax to support our NHS which is now overloaded with 'visitors' who don't have the same facilities 'back home', and (in this area at least) get regularly cut up by cars sporting Euro identities of places where the steering wheel and road sense apply to the 'wrong' wide of the road. Don't get me going on uninsured drivers..........

There are many other things that irritate me, the above are just a few, and none of them are what I signed up for when the UK joined the Common Market. I agree that not all of our 'imports' (regulations or people) are within the above criteria, but I think I have the right to change my mind when things have changed so much and are not what I agreed to in the first place.
