    People who, upon receiving mildly negative news, adopt an expression of utter dumb incomprehension

    Seriously, what is that about? I told someone today his benefit was going to be late because (hey!) he'd signed late and it was like I'd switched to Flemish. Actually felt the need to ask if he'd understood me.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Good point - it's bloody annoying is that - Over the years I've come to the conclusion that that reaction is designed to enable the recipient to lay the blame for the mildly negative news on he/she who imparts it

    In order to test the theory I have tried it myself and it does work

    Ha, yeah think you've probably nailed it on the head. Just so irritatingly passive/aggressive. Would honestly prefer to be called a C yoU Next Tuesday or something, because one is at least conversant with the appropriate response to give then.

    The standard of driving
    It's such a problem, because lax driving brings the whole standard down and it's now at the stage where nobody gives a **** because nobody else does.. I've even found my own standards slipping enormously, doing other stuff while driving, not paying attention, usual stuff.. PE drivers are incredibly slow usually because they are either stoned, on their cellphones or drunk, or all three, and I had the pleasure of following one all the way back from my friends house tonight, and then at the traffic circle, indicate right, and the joker waiting to join the circle pulls straight in front of me, so I tail gate him, not because I am annoyed, but because I don't care about being a good driver any more, why should I make an effort when nobody else does, FFS

    Damn me to Hell for saying this but British people.

    I spend over half my social time with Brits and I love it. However the football talk get very boring very quickly and they have the political and economic sophistication of 9 year olds.

    For relaxed drinks, laughs and hanging out they are fantastic but I wouldn't trust them to organize a kids birthday party (and I deal with some pretty influential people.)

    British people = cool but clueless

    What do you mean by this? I've found quite a bit of ridiculous nationalism (ridiculous because it's to the point where it's very much against their own interests).

    Bit of a sweeping generalization, my main gripe with brits is that they only seem to be living for the weekend.. Remember tuning into the radio stations there to hear stuff like "Only 2 days till the weekend".. Why do people there do that?

    Because most people don't have to work in the weekends, therefore the weekends are more enjoyable.

    Yeah, granted, but they make it sound like everyone might as well be dead during the week, which I would rather be if I still lived there actually

    I don't understand. You can still do things after work. Just can't involve too much alcohol consumption

    Generally too exhausted to do anything after work except go home, cook dinner and watch TV.
