Re: Off Topic Room 101

@Mi-Amigo  I'm sure I was one of the few people who voted Golf in as I can't stand it. Neither can I stand people who snore....so if I have changed my mind, so be it...the list I gave above is the one I want to stand by....Fear

Re: Off Topic Room 101

Thanks for pulling the last batch of submissions, and votes for or against banishment to Room 101, together, @Mi-Amigo !

 

Here's some Room 101 nominations for the next batch:

 

1. parking across two parking bays

2. ducking the question

3. nickel-and-diming

4. trying to open the door or emergency escape window on an aircraft in-flight

 

That'll do for now, I think!

Jaywalking

 

Vehicles which don't indicate therefore causing confusing to pedestrians

 

Bicycles without bells ... have I put forward this before ?

Charging for trivial or inconsequential items, like 10p for butter on your scone in a tea-room - nickel-and-diming, @WispaRed7.
