You need to be careful eating in an office.

I was working in Saigon in this brand new office building and one of the locals lads went out of his way to buy me the closest thing to a ham & salad roll... because he thought I must be craving western food. He came bounding up to me with it mid-morning and whacked it on a corner of my desk. It was a very nice gesture. Really nice fresh baguette roll wrapped in plastic. I should have eaten it there and then.

Then I had to go out to a meeting across town... out on the reclaimed swamps south of the city where they were building a city from scratch. I would be away for 2-3 hours only. I had left the roll on the desk and thought nothing of it before hopping in a cab. It would be there when I got back for lunch. It was an air conditioned office so it should be OK out in the open for a couple of hours at most.

Upon returning at about 12:45, I opened the doors to the 3rd floor office and saw what I thought was a large black paint, or oil streak from the far window... about 10m away from my desk.... over tables, down table legs and along the carpet... right onto my desk and my scrummy roll. They were ants! Nice big tropical meat-eating ones.

The others had already left for lunch themselves. It turns out they had come from street level, up the inside of a column... through a hole somewhere, then into the window frames. They were pouring out of there in huge numbers. The trail was a wide as your hand... packed in army ranks of these ants. 10,000s?

It took about half an hour to 45 mins to clean up. Full on emergency just because some idiot left his lunch on an office table. steam

You'll know the type.

And yes, he is already middle management, and other than keeping the canteen in business I don't see what she offers.

A hairdressers has taken out a half page ad in our local paper welcoming the return of their 'Art Director'
You're not an Art Director, you're a hairdresser. Be proud of what you do, don't couch it in pretentious bollox.

That's like when they call a hairdressers a 'hair studio'. Do they really think people are swayed by that kind of thing?

I work with a geezer who is trying to lose weight (without success) and he has soup for his dinner every day, but then has four cheese breadcakes with it. May as well have a bleeding kebab for all the good that will do you.

They are anything but bloody artists in the one local to me. One of them actually tutted at me because I forgot to ask for jalapeños... He was a student from Manchester so it didn't go some way to explaining his personality.

It is infuriating...

My mother has always had issues with weight. One of her bright ideas was to buy a small plate. Her logic being small plate = small amount of food. Seems like a sensible idea.

Only issue was that she would still buy a takeaway, and would just have 3 small plates equalling the same amount of food. Stupid woman.

My dog hardly ever barks, even if someone comes to the door, but I take her to the fort (just a big hill really) near me and at the last house we pass before we get to the gate, there are two or three Jack Russells who bark like mad every time - when we arrive and again when we leave. It's a popular dog-walking place, so these dogs must bark every half hour or so easily, seven days a week. I'd hate to be their neighbours. Plus, how stupid are those dogs, to get so angry / defensive at something that happens so often? Surely they know by now that the people walking past aren't a threat or whatever they think they are?

Crazy. I recently lost over half a stone with the revolutionary idea of eating a bit less crisps, cake and sweets and doing a bit more exercise. I may have to write a book telling people about this wonder method.

Dogs barking is a more common problem than you'd think, and it isn't the dogs fault, it is the scummy owners who let it happen.

Another thing about dog owners is those that own little rat types who think it is adorable when they come up and growl at my dog. It's isn't fine and if they annoy my dog too much she will probably just eat them.

Nothing wrong staffies. My dog is a half staffie, not sure what's she's crossed with (possibly an American bull dog) and she's the best behaved dog you'll ever meet.

They get a bad press from wannabe rich Tory boys like toppy.

I know some people on here who despise Miranda Hart but I don't mind her and her recent book was quite amusing in parts. She wrote her own "Diet Book" and I'll reproduce it in full for you..
1/ Eat a bit less
2/ Move about a bit more.

She advocates accepting what you look like and not spending huge chucks of you life worrying about what people do/will/might think of you.

I find there are legions of overweight women who think that a different coloured lipstick will make them look like Nell McAndrew who will also sneer at you because you aren't a Brad Pitt or George Clooney look-a-like.

"Oooh aren't I wicked but the diet starts on Monday!"

"It's Tuesday now...why not start today...right now...ya greedy fat ****?"

Dunno, if it was AZ or TRUSS or STRONGY falling over I could watch it ad infinitum.

I'd like to watch AZ falling over whilst on holiday in somewhere like Nigeria then trying to blame the White Man and losing his rag to such a degree he threw himself on the floor like a child having a tantrum.

My biggest hate at the moment is those supermarket staff who monitor the self service tills. They have one f-ing job, that is it, one job. So why is it that everytime I scan a 4 pack do they stand there staring at walls for a minute before eventually and reluctantly scanning a bit of paper that says I look over 25? Irritated me typing that.

Those self-service tills are so unreliable. Sometimes I have to scan every item at least three times, ridiculously slowly, just for it to register. And then once you've finally got everything through and paid, that cheeky robot lady says 'please take your items.' Give me a second! And why does she need to say that anyway? Do they think people would just walk off without their shopping if she didn't remind them?

Dammit. I knew I'd forgotten something.
Twice this year I have been to a cashpoint, withdrawn £20 and then walked in to a supermarket to do some shopping witthout collecting my money from the machine. First time I never saw it again but on the second occasion remarkably there was a youngish kid waiting there to return it to me.

Food shopping in general annoys me , but what really grinds my gears is when a supermarket will have numerous price promotions on at the same time ....say 3 for £10 but you can't mix and match the products

I'll tell you what it is that f*cks me off about dog owners, the fact they think the pavement belongs to them. The owner walks on one side with the dog on the other side with the lead stretched across the path like some Vietcong trip wire. Then you have to stop and wait for them to move or for their dog to stop p*ssing on its own legs and come to their side. T*ssers.

Another thing, dog owners are always signing Christmas cards from their dogs. Happy Christmas from Dave, Mary and Rover. F*ck off you cretins. I don't like your stinking dog anyway. Although ironically, I would be impressed if it could actually sign its own name.

Dogs are idiots.

Let it out Tino.

I think you'd like my dog. I like her more than more than most my friends. She always agrees with me and she hates cats.

Do you ever look at what they have in their basket/trolly. It is halarious. Packs and packs of crisps, sweets, yoghurts and a token piece of veg. You ain't fooling me with that fatty.

or old people who block aisles by standing at one side but then have their trolley diagonally across the aisle to the other side !

oh and people who decide to stop right next to a pallet of goods to restock shelves and talk to people they know

I'd like her Korean style.

I don't hate cats, they are just pompous and ignorant. Did you know Jeff carries his cat around in his m*n-bag?

Or people who just stop in the middle of the aisle for no reason. At least have the decency to move to one side so people can pass. I bumped into someone on purpose once, she'd been blocking my way all the way round the supermarket. I apologised, but I didn't mean a word of it! Smile

Another thing about dog owners is those that own little rat types who think it is adorable when they come up and growl at my dog. It's isn't fine and if they annoy my dog too much she will probably just eat them.
I'll tell you what it is that f*cks me off about dog owners, the fact they think the pavement belongs to them.  The owner walks on one side with the dog on the other side with the lead stretched across the path like some Vietcong trip wire.  Then you have to stop and wait for them to move or for their dog to stop p*ssing on its own legs and come to their side.  T*ssers.

Another thing, dog owners are always signing Christmas cards from their dogs.  Happy Christmas from Dave, Mary and Rover.  F*ck off you cretins.  I don't like your stinking dog anyway.  Although ironically, I would be impressed if it could actually sign its own name.

Dogs are idiots.
Laugh 

I don't personally sign cards from my dog, but the mrs does. I think given the choices he would save the dog before me.

I should add I'm a responsible owner. I make sure my dog doesn't block the path. In fact I don't even put her on the lead. That way she is free to run up at you from a distance and get you with her muddy paws.

I've always thought a man owning a cat means that he can't reproduce.
