Cure for trivial things that annoy you

Postby Ron Stuart » Tue Nov 27, 2012 08:35 am

As the thread relating to this is now into page 21 maybe it's time to think about a possible cure for the above annoyances, any ideas :?:

Wouldn't work. Getting sand in your speedos is too annoying.....


What about nerve gas??

The cure is simple - just live your lives according to my rules, foibles & quirks. And get an aptitude for mind-reading when it changes for no obvious reason.

Live life how I expect it to work and you won't go far wrong, except that you'll upset the rest of the world, who might see things differently (i.e. wrongly).

Sorted.

I have always liked this poem. A bit of an antidote to the modern world. Although it doesn't rhyme......which is annoying :wink:

Perhaps go and live somewhere that people have real problems for a while?

I'm not my wife. She asks me questions to which she already has an answer, then gives me the correct answer after I've provided a different one. Why ask in the first place? Put that one in trivial annoyances.

Know what you mean mate but were looking for cures here :P

So far and much to my surprise it's 'bompington' that has struck the same cord as myself, maybe a month on the Gaza strip or a spell in Rwanda might just help balance priorities a little :wink:
I spent just a fortnight surveying a Russian Petrochemical works some twenty years ago near a place called Yaraslavl and I was so pleased to enter the Irish Bar at Moscow Airport on the way home it was untrue.
I had been staying in the best Hotel there and was entertained each night by the sound of nomad kids breaking up firewood to stay warm outside :!:

A cure for anyone annoyed by yobs who spit in the street is to ask the occasional one 'aw bless, don't like the taste of sp*nk then?' (note, Ive tried this a few times and they do get aggressive and ratty cos they're invariably incredibly homophobic)... always makes me smile just to think that's why they're spitting when I see them doing it.
