:agree: Oh yes, that makes me cringe every time I hear it. My other real annoyance is with those that can't stop using their mobile phones in social situations even when someone is speaking to them. One reason I am one of the five people in the world who does not own a mobile phone.

Same here Nigel, I've never owned a cell, never will either, a while back my sister sent me a picture, she had gone out for supper with 5 of her grandchildren, ALL of them were clicking away on their phones, heads down and oblivious to everything, she looked so sad and worst of all her son didn't say a thing to them!!. :rant:

And this habit of saying "Awesome" every sentence!!!, what's awesome about a slice of pizza or a cup of coffee?.....better stop or I'll be writing chapter two!!

Now this will either make you laugh or even really annoy you!!

Pedestrians using mobile phones are more or less walking zombies, they are not aware of what is happening around them especially when crossing the road and are more than likely to collide with you if you do not move out of their way. :wall:

Well, in China they have come up with a solution.............wait for it....

I can just see the smartphone zombies bumping into each other while walking and talking. :lol: Did you know they now make a "smart mirror"? :dunno: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNreZyhwFF8

What a society it's turned into, dreading next week when it becomes legal to smoke pot in Canada, spaced out drunks texting behind the wheel. :rant:
Now they are even ordering meals that arrive in a chilled box daily, complete with step by step instructions on how to cut the veggies and cook the meal. :rant:
Call me old fashioned but I go out in the boat, catch a nice big cod, return to the dock, gut, fillet and skin it, back to the house for beer battered fish & chips with mushy peas, all in two hours!!!.

I was saying to my wife just yesterday how much and how fast the world is changing. Especially over the last ten years and not for the good in a lot of cases. Perhaps it is just me getting older but somehow I don't think so.

On the last mentioned; I tripped over a "smart mirror" video advert. It lets you do computer functions while you're shaving etc. :rant:
Might come in handy if you need to order toilet paper in a hurry, I suppose. :dunno:

BT (or rather Openwretch) strike again...

Another missed engineers appointment today! Having just spent over an hour on the phone to the BT call centre they've managed to extract (after much hard work) a promise from Openwretch to send an engineer on Saturday morning. Well done the call centre - awesome service!

I should explain for those that don't use BT services that Openwretch is a reference to Openreach BT's now third party installation and general landline problem solving (or causing) service. To say that they are generally rubbish is doing a disservice even to the stuff that ends up in landfill.
