I've got a mate like that too, he says he'll see you in 10 minutes and an hour later you're still waiting for him. It's at the point where if he shows up 20 minutes after he said he would we're all like "You're EARLY?!?!"

I had a friend who had a compulsion about time keeping.

He was stopped by the police at 11.45pm on Christmas Eve because he was doing 20mph in a 40mph zone as he was too early for the watchnight service.

Local mentality/ small mindedness

People who think that life should just be about the 5 mile area around their house (most probably council) and their football team.

Ask them "if you could go anywhere in the world" they would reply Ibiza/ Majorca etc.....

THE ASSEMBLY COUNT!

Comedy of errors in Omagh, Fermanagh South Tyrone and West Tyrone count centre. From wet ballot papers that needed hairdryers to dry out, staff being locked out of verification computers, to a table collapsing and all the votes on it having to be recounted...it's a mare.

You're gonna have to explain that one to me.

Are you throwing a blanket over a bunch of people based on your own altercations or did you watch the news too much after the government raised tuition fees?

can anyone remember a hidden camera show called the Richard Hillman interviews (I think that was the name), which were basically real people going for interviews but being asked to do incredibly stupid things.

One of which was:

"Many companies like to think outside the box. Here, we like our employees to think inside the box"

At which point they bring out a huge box for the interviewee to sit in whilst answering a series of questions!

Genius!

Loads of things annoy me. Loads and loads. But one in particular is when people say something like, 'she text me the other day.' Surely if the verb is 'to text,' then the past tense should be 'texted?'

Nobodies on Twitter tweeting like they're somebody and think someone actually cares.

Internet grammar and spelling police.

When Heroes got cancelled.

When Americans give away what happens in US shows before I get the chance to download it.

That bloke that held up the whole lottery queue yesterday in Sainsburys with his basket full of food. That's right mate, ignore the 32 tills and 6 self service machines and go straight to the fag counter you bell end! I hope karma bites you on your bum and you get trampled to death by a runaway elephant wearing golf shoes you mug!

Taxi drivers that stink the whole car out with B.O in the summer with the windows up. Here's your tip mate..shower, maybe every day if possible and use soap. It's a simple process really!

People that shout you more than once and then say "your'e deaf". Well if I'm deaf then why are you shouting me you donut! What next? A day trip with Stevie Wonder to the Tate Gallery?

People that write LOL in a text message. Go and choke on your phone in public pal!

People that blatantly lie about their salaries. Mate you do not get paid more than a GP or Teacher emptying and filling vending machines you sad sack of afterbirth! And no I can't lend you a tenner.

My boss who keeps asking "did you get any last night?". Do I look the kinda guy who participates in severe love making on a work night? I have been in the same relationship for six years. Of course I didn't!

People that say your joke isn't funny because they don't get it. Knock knock....
