    Those buggers with a duff headlight on their car, instead of getting a new bulb and replacing it, they just stick their only working one on full beam! Throbbers!

    despite raining 2/3 of the year having to water the garden so the plants don't die.

    When was the last time it actually rained?

    Working nights at this time of year. My neighbour on the left has recently retired and is a keen gardener, meaning he’s out with the lawn mower most mornings early doors. The neighbour on the right is having her garden completely slabbed. The noise is absolutely deafening and there nothing you can do about it. Add that to the fact that it’s too warm to sleep, it makes for a very irritable lord bunberry.
    absolutely. I also work shifts. brutal. my neighbour has a rat dog that barks all day.

    Wearing sneakers, trainers, old gym shoes with a dress suit. Trendy (?) it might seem to be, but I think it looks naff and says to me “I’m wearing a suit but I don’t really want to, so these bad boys are my protest.” Well why not ditch the suit and enjoy wearing your comfortable trainers, sneakers etc. with jeans or casual trousers. A nice suit deserves a nice pair of appropriate dress shoes.

    Paul McCartney started that in the sixties. Rab C Nesbitt did it later.
    It's a bit played now but anything goes I suppose.

    Surely it's entirely up to the individual what they wear.
    If you want to look like a wally then fill your boots - or sneakers in this case.

    Where do you stand on doing it for commuting. I.e i used to wear comfy trainers when walking to work and put my normal shoes on when i got there. Walking in my work shoes could be uncomfortable

    Why are some people overly concerned at how other people dress? Having been the trampy kid at school it's always been a peeve of mine that some people are so shallow that they think the clothes that someone wears makes the person. If that were the case, then the fashion industry would surely use ugly fat models to prove the point.

    People, usually the self proclaimed good looking, who sit on a night out just looking thoroughly miserable. If you don't like where you are then stop going, if you do like it then try telling your face.

    I’ve no problems with what folk wear for practical purposes. My post was about folk making a ‘Fashion statement’ out of a naff, unconventional combination of clothes and footwear, in particular dress suits and white trainers.

    For a start I’m not ‘overly concerned’ ....... just making a random observation of something, which to me is odd. There’s a difference between wearing what you have available or out of necessity or just bad dress sense and wearing odd clothes combinations for effect. If we’re talking ‘shallowness’ maybe it’s the ‘trend setters’ who are the shallow ones. Sorry if I’ve offended you, personally. Opinions, eh?

    Have you tried placing his dog in your garden to see how your neighbour likes it?

    I'm not keen on the new Royal Infirmary entrance, especially the shopping mall that greets the visitor to Outpatients. There's a huge queue at the coffee place, caused by the barista-type coffee machine cranking out lattes,cappuccinos etc plus food. Some folk are on lunch break for heavens sake.
    What happened to the good old hospital canteen where there was plenty space, simple fare and you didn't have to wait while someone gets a fancy coffee that they think they need?

    Same problem at my golf club. One barman takes about 10 minutes to make up 4 coffees with a queue of half a dozen who are wanting cold drinks which take seconds to serve.

    I didn't quote anyone Jim, it's just a peeve of mine and I wasn't offended by any statements made on here. I just completely hate the fashion industry and all its woman hating gurus who feel the need to tell people what they should be wearing. Like I said before, if clothes make the person like they'd have you believe, then the models they use would be ordinary people at best. It's all a huge con.

    Aye I've been in it but it doesn't feel like the canteens of yore. It's called The Place To Eat or some such.

    I got so peed off at this the other week that I deliberately ripped one to have an excuse to bin it.

    Called RBS to renew travel insurance. Pre-recorded messages for at least 5 minutes before I eventually got to speak to a human.
    The neighbours must have heard me effin and blinding at my phone during the wait. -> ->
    Bloody ridiculous - but alas, it's the norm nowadays.
