Things that piss you off that shouldn't

Recommended Posts

Our road appears to have become some sort of Pandemic superhighway for Joggers, Cyclists and dog walkers

It's a Scouse thing tbh, the shop originated here and when it first started, it was indeed called Home and Bargain. It hasn't been called that for sodding ages though

Taxi for “The Asda” or “Mat Alan” should be no issue then?

The general public are morons.

"Why have you introduced this new automated system"

"Because there's a worldwide pandemic currently engilfing the planet"

"when I try to oder one for Home and Bargain, it doesn't recognise it"

That's because it's called Home Bargains"

"No its not"

"Just read the sign on the shop love, what does it say?"

"Home and bargain"

"No it doesn't love, read it again"

"Thats beside the point"

"No, it really isn't!"

Perfect for this thread. People who call **** Home Bargains, Home and Bargain. Its been Home Bargains for 25 bloody years. Arseholes.

I love Home and Bargain, they have some great deals on opal fruits and marathons.

Me and the Mrs call Home Bargains, Hobos. I said it in work once and people looked at me like I had 2 heads. Love the place!

I don't think I have ever stepped inside one. Thats not me being a snob, I'm a right tight fisted word removed, but I simply don't recall visiting one. 

I have been inside a B&M though... is it like that?

Less than 5 times in my life. I think all of those were in a 3 month period when I was helping an ex move into a new place!

They're not bad actually, the J10 one is ok. Went to the Coventry one once.

I've only been to Ikea once to buy a flatpack wardrobe (somehow managed to get it into my mate's Golf) and not likely to go back.

I use Ikea quite a lot. I think the secret is not to rock up at lunchtime on a weekend.

Like any shop that is a chore to get done, I will not go in for a general bit of a browse. Know what you want, stock check that they have it, go get it, check out. Hot dog.

When people call a vacuum cleaner a ‘Hoover‘ by default.  
It seems only people from the West Midlands refer to them correctly as vacs.  Hoover is a brand.

Only a few brands have managed to get their name as the generic name. Sellotape and Pritt-stick couple of others.
