    ***** short term weather forecasts.

    According to the BBC and Met Office websites Edinburgh has been battered by heavy snow all morning. A quick look out the window would confirm a 5-10 minute flurry was about our lot.

    Fake news.

    I hate films that whenever there’s a scene in a garage or a building site or an adventure/spy type film when everyone’s getting kitted up for a mission at night there’s always somebody with a grinder making sparks. Does my head in.
    Ah, movie clichés.

    This deserves a thread of its own.

    People talking in public libraries, especially when it's the library staff themselves who are the culprits. Chats about health matters, personal finance, mutual acquaintances, family etc. How can folk talk out loud in public about such things? It seems to me the height of ignorance, quite apart from the disturbance to those trying to read or study in peace.

    Yup, although I kind of approve of kids going to the library in this philistine age. They might be tempted to pick up a book all of a sudden, if that doesn't sound too patronising.

    I appreciate that libraries - especially local ones - are more than just for reading these days. They are "hubs" for various media and for local information. If they were just full of books, they'd all have been closed down years ago.

    But when the staff are the ones making the racket...............! It's a volte face of the old Silence Please era!

    Ball point pens that work sporadically.

    Only good for writing pidgin morse.

    Hysterical weather warnings slapped about that are over cautious to cover the forecasters' backs.

  21. #4550
    Folk opting to take-on a drive when there have been clear and early weather warnings, and then blaming everyone else for them being stuck on a motorway and not getting home until the next day. Some boy on the news last night no happy about the "lack of information"... do you want someone to helicopter out and tell you you're going to be stuck another few hours because it's still p1shing of snow?

    If you're going to make the decision to drive knowing how severe the weather is...take a pair of wellies and a coat, and shut the **** up.

    Snow pictures on social media. A picture of your back garden covered in snow looks just the same as the ones in your back garden covered in snow posted following previous accumulations. And everyone else's garden.

    Chronic, also these doughnuts on facebook who ask if schools are closed in Edinburgh due to the snow? Look hen, we've had a dusting of snow, pack the kids off to school, this isn't Alaska!

    You would hate portobello library then. I used to take my daughter there for a class that involved singing nursery rhymes and banging instruments

    People that have no awareness of their surroundings and people nearby. Particularly ones that walk towards you, and you are Mr or Mrs invisible and you end up having to avoid them or give way to them.
    We have a keep left policy at work, on the stairs and corridors but there’s always somebody that doesn’t know their right from their left or walks two abreast with their mate and is oblivious to anyone coming towards them.

    In my old age I just stand still and and block their way now with the hope that they might actually realise their is more than just them on the planet.
