Not to be a pain in the arse, but should you really be anticipating what motorists will be doing when on foot and walking out in front of them? Anything can happen, they may indicate but have to swerve to miss something and hit you anyway. Having seen someone get hit buy a car (came off ok) i always wait until they are past me before walking on to the road.

Billy - I end up waiting for ages to see where people are going because they don't indicate, and then when I think it's going to be OK, it's not. They should be indicating so that other road users don't make the wrong assumptions, and then accidents won't happen. It's a two-way thing. Isn't that the point of having indicators on vehicles, so they can let others know where they're going??

As i said Cari, i wasnt trying to be arse but when you say you walked out in front them it feels to me to be a bad course of action and no amount of indicating would help. Maybe i am getting it all wrong though Very Happy

The bottom line is that you shouldn't have to guess what a motorist is going to do, they should be indicating to everyone else what they're going to do. It's the simplest thing in the world to do and every driver will have been taught to do it so there's really no excuse.

Oh i agree that indicating is important and is the only way to let others know but you should also anticipate the fact that a driver (even if indicating) may make a mistake and change his mind at any given time thats all Very Happy

When you let somebody in from a side street in heavy traffic (because there's a gap for them in front of you and you're feeling kind & generous) but then they indicate to turn across the oncoming lane - which also is very busy - and you get sandwiched into a lane going nowhere and all the cars behind you have more time to slip into the left lane and bypass the obstruction... which was all created by your original act of generosity to let the baastard in!

I know the feeling... waiting for x-rays in outpatients and going to specialists' appointments, etc but I always try to keep my chin up. Smile at other patients.... read a bit for a while without even seeming interested in the wait. Best way to kill time.

Before you know it you'll hear your name being called out! Very Happy

Except there's never anything good to read in the waiting room! (Unless you like women's magazines.) I had to wait over an hour at the doctor's last week. I ate a whole packet of Softmints.

Amazingly , my dentist actually has some decent magazines - the one drawback to this is you are three quarter way through an interesting article when your name is called ...

Six months to the next check up ... Suppose I could have stolen it. Very Happy

My dentists doesn't have any magazines. They have a TV in the waiting area which usually has some daytime rubbish on it. Going in for a root canal filling is often a welcome distraction...

People who stand waiting in line in shops and restaurants without making their mind before they get to the front. Shot into McDonald's for a breakfast muffin this morning to find a ten minute line up. I get to next in line as the women in front of me makes it to the cashier - asked what she wants only to look up and start reading the bloody menu mad. I was already running late (hence why I hadn't had breakfast at home as usual).

They have tv's set into the ceiling at my dentists here so you watch whilst they work. It was bad enough having my wisdom teeth removed under local anesthetic but I had to sit through back to back old episodes of location, location, location. I tried to explain that I had moved 5000 miles to get away from crap like that but my gob was completely frozen and blinking rapidly didn't seem to make a difference.

Laugh I'd hate to have a TV above me at the dentists in case I could see my own reflection in it and what they're doing. It's bad enough when they wear glasses and you can see yourself...the feeling is bad enough, I don't need to see it!

That is annoying. It's like waiting to use an ATM and the person in front wants to do 100 different things and has three different cards. furious

Going to a concert and having people throw their beer over you.

Or even worse which happened to me last night a full to the brim glass of warm urine.

Seriously why do people feel this is acceptable when at a concert? The darkness and anonymity of suddenly makes them feel they can do things that they would hopefully never dream of doing in any other situation.

Hero - I've never understood that either. Years ago at festivals people had to pish in bottles out of necessity, but you don't need to do that these days and not at all in an indoor venue. Like you say, some people think it's hilarious. Rolling Eyes

As a matter of interest, what cool and hip band that I have never heard of did you go and see?

I will guess at one of the following:

Clotted Hair
Automaton
Stairs (a Steps tribute band)
Victoria Sponge
Lana Del Reymond van Barneveld
Si Si Baroni

We got front row right in the middle for the Inspirals and my wife was chuffed that Boon smiled at her 3 times, I also was the first person in the crowd to give out a huge 'Boon Army' chant which got the rest going which was pretty cool.

That sounds like a top gig. I can't believe they're still touring. I thought Clint Boon had started a different group and was still with them. I knew the Mondays were on about reforming the original line up.

I did complain about this guy near the end of the last thread but my housemates back to hoping I'll help him with his coursework as he doesn't know what to write. We have the same resources online to help us why do you expect that I know what to do? It's the rare occaision where telling him I don't know what to do isn't lying, but still he's already asked me at least 4 times today for help despite my reply not changing, does he really think I've understood it in the last hour and have decided I shall give him all the help he requires?

The whole point of an education is that you learn to do things for yourself. By asking you all the time, he's not learning anything. If he's really struggling with certain subject matter then maybe it's about time he discussed his options with his tutors? I'm sure you've enough on your plate than doing all his work for him. Just tell him, if he's struggling that much to speak to his tutor.

Cari if it looked like he was actually putting real effort into it then maybe I would give him that advice but as I'm aware he's currently smoking weed when it's in for later this week means I don't care enough to try to help. Plus if he was really stuck he would have downloaded all the lecture slides and spotted that some are actually pretty useful, I'm looking at some which despite being annoyingly set up so that for some reason I can only view them as a slide show do actually break down what we should do pretty well.

The problem with helping someone all the time (especially if they chose to do drugs or party instead of the work) is that it disrupts your work and your pattern.

You helping him short time will be of no use to him later either as he still wont fully understand what is expected of him when the time comes.

My advice would be to let him know that he has to put in the effort as it will be important for him later.

You could be really mean and make up a load of stuff and say that's what you've been taught in lectures... devil

People that complain about being overworked yet open the newspaper 10 minutes after coming into work.

And proceed to read it out to the office.
