    This also happens when watching Casualty or Holby City on TV with a medical professional. :)

    "Well done love, you've just killed him."
    "Wrong tube."
    "Why aren't all the nurses on their breaks outside smoking?"
    "How come all the staff are so good looking?"

    Twitter sent to Pizza Hut about one of their pizzas not being up to standard.

    I think we've all been here at some point in time!

    Similar thing happened to a work colleague who complained her 'cheesy chips' had no cheese. She'd opened the polystyrene box the wrong way. We didn't laugh too much!

    Regulation 1976 style versus Reality 2019 style. :)

    It’s a regular part of the old guys anger how they currently wear their berets. Dress regs still state that the cap badge is 1” above the left eye, but the current trend is for it to be around 1” above the left ear!

    At the last RMA reunion I went to I wore mine in that fashion and was berated by a former WO2 for the way I was wearing it. I took great delight in informing him that as we were both civvies he could stick his opinion up his arris!

    His attitude is one of the reasons why I am not a member of the Exmouth branch of the RMA. Too many former DLs and PWs who think they’re still in the Corps!

    Edit: Just realised that I posted this in the Things that make you laugh section, instead of the Rants one. Must have my Gof head on today.
    Still, off to the beach shortly and a few cold Coronas should put a smile on my face!

    His capbadge is probably the furthest ive seen it around. The most common is to have the tip of the wing by the corner of the eye and the rest down the side instead of over the eye

    When you’re on a dual carriageway that goes down to a single and a driver belts past at supersonic speed to get ahead of everyone.....gets on the single, bangs on the brakes, gets stuck in the traffic and sits there looking an absolute lemon. I laugh out loud.

    You mean a driver that is abiding by the merge in turn concept?

    Remember, it’s not a “que”:

    https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/driving-advice/zip-merging/

    The Highway Code states:

    Rule 134
    You should follow the signs and road markings and get into the lane as directed. In congested road conditions do not change lanes unnecessarily. Merging in turn is recommended but only if safe and appropriate when vehicles are travelling at a very low speed, e.g. when approaching road works or a road traffic incident. It is not recommended at high speed.“

    No, I don’t mean that. No ‘abiding’ about it! Or ‘merging’! Just a ‘got to get ahead of everyone even if it means nearly causing an accident when having to squeeze in front of a vehicle because the lane’s run out...then sharply applying brakes because, suddenly, there’s a line of traffic on the single so nowhere to go’ mentality.

    Yea. It’s driving without looking far enough ahead.


    I am a stickler for traffic regulations and drivers habits. It’s fascinating what people perceive as correct behaviour on the road. Having had to deal with the aftermath a few times, it definately changes how you drive.
