Match Fixing

So we've just come back from a lovely family weekend to a hotel, with a brilliant little kids club for the wee ones.  Loads of activities for them and many competitions.  Kids were great, but whats with competitive parents??  Don't get me wrong, I actually like a bit of competition and don't get me started on this new idea of non competitive sports days, but I'm talking competitive crab racing and crab fixing.  I am not lying when I say one couple actually went up to the organisers and offered them a monetary bribe to let their kids win!!  What the?  What are they gonna do, steroid the crab up quick??  I was in shock!  Luckily so were the organisers who were having none of it, but really, what principles are we teaching the kids?  People moan about young kids of today, well may look to the parents!

Privacy

Anyone else find it really eerie that you look at something on one website, for example shoes and then you instantly get emails or pop ups regarding shoes.  Is big brother really watching us, freaks me out.


Last Call...

My gripe is with people who go missing at airports once they have checked in?? How??  You've clearly gone to an airport with a ticket because you've checked in, then the flight has been called and you've disappeared??  Is the airport so great that you forgot why you were they?  There are final calls and even your personal final call, where the beep are you??  Sometimes when Im having a bad day I think of these ignorant imbeciles that delay flights and wonder if they are still wandering around an airport and laugh, but not when I'm a passenger awaiting them...






Respect

People moan about muslim women covering up in their country i.e. France, yet when Dubai puts up signs about please cover up as a sign of respect there is outrage from expats?!  Surely there should be one rule for all, respect the country you live in and respect yourself?

Homeopathy Tripe

Don't get me started on homeopathy, too late I'm started!  What the??  Please, someone who believes in it, please tell me if you actually do believe that water has a 'memory'?  That literally a drop in an ocean thats then bottled for a billion dollar company really does cure your ails??  Have you actually looked into it or do you simply see it as a bottle with a healthy non chemical remedy and buy it.  You are drinking water, banged in a 'special' way!  Its an expensive placebo if you like and whilst thats great if it makes you feel better, its also highly dangerous if you think its actually going to cure you!  I could go on and on but I feel better just getting it off my chest, there this website has made me feel better and thats with no chemicals too.


Common Sense?

If you are going to try and sell your second hand bed on a selling website, would you not make it first???  Presentation people!


Danger! Price Tag

Whilst wrapping my Christmas gifts the other day I had to pick off a sticky label, as you do.  Unfortunately a bit stuck under my thumbnail and so my natural instinct was to bite it out.  What I didn't expect was to receive a caustic burn to my mouth and tongue from the glue used on the tag!  I ran to the sink and doused my mouth in water but it had already swollen up to the size of Bubba Gump and ulcerated the entire area.  Absolute agony!  If this was not bad enough, I contacted the homeware shop I had bought it from and they were less than sympathetic, telling me that labels should not be eaten.  I'm actually well aware not to eat labels however I didn't expect to receive a caustic burn from its residue! Grrrrrrr

 

Selfish Smokers

How ignorant do you have to be to smoke in a car with young children in the back?  I don't care if you think its acceptable because you had a window open, its not!  You are just selfish idiots.  I actually thought it was against the law now, though why any 'normal' person would need a law to stop them from doing this is beyond me...

Dear Evil 40 year old

Dear 40 year old woman (I say 40 but the ugliness I witnessed was well over 100)
On a busy train station when you see a woman with a walking stick ( she is severely sight impaired) and her daughter telling her to look out for stairs, then you should not shout at her when she bumps into you. And even when she politely says sorry you mutter something to your 4 year old daughter about not wasting your time with incompetence!

Tight Fisted

I have to laugh, before I knock someones head off, when they spend time bartering with you over a kids toy that was already so cheap and want to knock it down further from 25 dhs to 15 dhs and then turn up with a 500 note!  Skint are we?  Now go get back in you BMW and find another bargain Scrooge!
