Things that piss you off that shouldn't

Brummies certainly have their own  identity I think . Not ones to hype themselves up IMO. Proper salt of the earth types . Regarding it being a shit hole. Yes like every other big city there are plenty of rough places, but I think it’s changed itself into a more vibrant place. Plenty of nice areas and things to do.

My Mum is a Geordie, has lived in Birmingham (well, Solihull technically...) for almost 40 years.  She often remarks on how downbeat Brummies are - particularly in reference to going to gigs, which she loves doing.  Most of the time, she'll look for gigs further afield because she finds the crowd more lively and upbeat.

I once read an article years ago which was on about brummies in general don’t tend to enjoy live shows as much as other cities  wether it be sport, music, comedy etc . Not sure how accurate that is

Couldn't decide whether this is more appropriate in the things that cheer you up, for the video, or in here, for the actual experience of using one of these useless pieces of crap. 

 

It would be a good subject on things you don't get thread, why do people even need straws to drink through?  I bet nobody does it at home.

Its just a brummie thing isn't it? Self depreciating humour and playing things down all the time.

I've worked in Brum centre for pretty much all my working life. Used to absolutely love it... I'd spend all week there and then go there at the weekend. Now, I think I'm just a bit bored of it. I can acknowledge its good points but as I have got older, I can see the downsides of it as well. I know where @Genie is coming from in his comments. I guess these are the sides to the city you see when you get older, even though its no more dangerous than it was 20 years back.

If we get a take home I will pour it out of those paper cups and into a glass.  I bloody hate straws.

I need the plastic straw to avoid the paper cup... These new fan dangled paper straws are a big no for me, can't do it

I've got that weird thing where I struggle with paper or wood near my mouth, horrible feeling, like ice creams on a wooden stick, ruins it

Having a new tempur mattress arriving today, so had to bag up and bring the old one (also tempur) downstairs ready for collection. 

Stupid price for a mattress but as I had one before then I am used to it. Thing is, cos its pure memory foam it weighs a bloody ton. Took me ages to get it off the bed and then down the stairs. 

I'm now panting like a fat lad in a doughnut shop 🥴

We've got an Emma original superking and as you say these memory foam ones weigh a ton, especially this size, absolutely everything is a 2 man job on ours.

Got the same about a month ago. Took it up 2 flights of stairs. It absolutely broke me.

This absolute tat.

I'd rather get cancer for my birthday over a message from a dead eyed celeb.

West Midlands Railway have changed one of their messages. It used to say, 'step onto the platform before removing heavy luggage and pushchairs'. Now it says 'step onto the platform before removing heavy luggage and pushchair'. I know it's not just something I heard because the dot matrix display in the carriage also doesn't have a final s.

WTF is this????? This isn't how English works! There's not just one pushchair, and pushchair is as countable noun. How did they even decide to change this? There must have been meeting where some dickhead said 'actually, it should be pushchair without an s'. **** hate that guy.

Imagine, for £202 minus the website cut, Michael Owen sat at home with a notification that he has 24 hours to record a personalised message for someone almost certainly trying to take the piss out of him.

What the **** motivates him to do that?

There’s even some examples on the page, one of them looks like his just got dressed after having a wank in the hotel shower and recorded a happy 60th message.

Some of us are old enough to remember when they transitioned from paper straws to plastic.

When I bought my house I went in the loft and found a little advertising sign for that. Brought a big smile to my face.
