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?

First you do your part in keeping the hobby alive and second you get even with the parents when the children will drive them crazy to buy a track for themselves.

Nothing so frustrating as a nagging child

I didn't want the scabby little s...ts in my garden , why would I want them in my house? if the parents would clearly rather spend their benefit hand outs on drugs rather than soap and shampoo , I think it unlikely that they would furnish their delightful offspring with slot cars!!!

a nagging child I can handle , one with no respect for the property of others I cannot.

Well, Leo, here's a "slot related " rant: The fact that you can buy any modern Le Mans prototype. .... as long as it's an Audi R18

Car insurance renewal. Mine was due recently and I was looking forward to changing insurers and getting a superhero meerkat toy. Turned out my renewal quote was cheaper than anything Aleksander could find so I had to stay with the same firm! Ah well, home insurance next month, try again.
Once great rock bands that are pale imitations of their former selves but keep on touring "for the fans" &#127928;&#127932;&#127911;&#127908;
..... Queen are the best (or should I say worst ) example of this ,
but The Who and AC/DC aren't far behind

coffee.... when I go out for a coffee , I just want a nice coffee. I don't want your latest Nepalese foo foo bean that was harvested by ambidextrous angels , triple roasted in a platinum plated pee pot and filtered through an old pair if the dali lama's y fronts and has undertones of plums and aubergine with a top hint of bleach...I just want coffee...and if I ask for black I want black , not "Americano"!!!

car parks... more accurately supermarket car parks , home to the worlds worst drivers. apart from unavoidable stone chips and one scooter induced dink courtesy of our lad , EVERY mark on our otherwise immaculate 10 year old focus has come from morons in supermarket car parks. trolley and basket strafes down the sides , gouges from flung open doors , scuffed bumpers when parking in your own space is just not an option. best of all , why do muppets reverse into spaces when they know they are going to be putting a trolley full of stuff in their boots?!! (other than delighting in putting even more scratches on our car!)

religion... all religions , the root of most of the worlds ills.

religion... all religions , the root of most of the worlds ills

true and when you think about it's just a game of my invisable friend is better than yours!!!!
I suspect that someone will suggest that religion and politics are orf dear!!
let 'em.. can't deny the truth though!

and another.. ignorant drivers! you put yourself out to give way to mike life easier for all (even if it is your right of way) and they sail by with their stupid noses in the air like is is your place to get out of their way without any sort of acknowledgement. I only ever do it once , if I see them again I'll take them off the road!!

I am reminded of the observation put forth by a very well know lyricist and composer pair well over 100 years ago:

"Don't the days seem lank and long when all goes right and nothing goes wrong
And isn't your life extremely flat when you've nothing whatever to grumble at"

or, as my grandmother used to say:

" I can carry anyone else's troubles to the top of the hill easily but I can barely carry my own down"

I am sorry I cant join your club.
My kids already think I am a grumpy old git, and I will be dogone sure not to, join this club and prove them right.

Kids that know it all.

when I was younger I thought I knew it all... now I am older and wiser I realise that I actually know naff-all... and ignorance is bliss!!
