    I have a couple of Leatherman multitools, really handy things to have. But because of the locking blade, illegal to carry, so they live under the seat of my motorcycles.
    With the spotlight on knife crime atm, i just wouldn't be comfortable keeping them on my person.

    Perhaps not bothered me for a long time. Because it seems like a fairly new trend.
    Self employed people calling themselves Directors or CEOs.
    No, just no.

    Advertising Boards plonked out on the pavement. Everyone needs to get past your shop safely without shuffling around pointless obstacles.

    Hotels serving poached eggs on dry toast for breakfast. Well, dry except for the pool of water from the eggs :cursing:

    If you've got an appropriate knife for fishing or diving then it's perfectly fine, just like a farmworker going to work can carry a billhook or a lumberjack, an axe. What you can't do is carry them down the local nightclub or too a football match.

    Why do the media talk of 'handing the keys to number 10 to (insert name here). It has no lock on the front door, unless they're the keys to the drinks cabinet.

    Roadwork signs placed on paths really get my goat, put them on the bloody road, that way the traffic may slow down in time.

    In the same vein, on my road on bin day (ooh this is bin news, all gone quiet on that front recently) the guys are happy to reach onto my patch to grab the bin but seem reluctant to pop it back, preferring instead to leave it on the pavement. My road has a full line of parked cars on both sides of the road on any day and any time. A clear obstruction. I phoned the council about this and was told they are not insured to be on my property. They didn't seem to recognise the hypocrisy in them being happy to step on my property to get the bin but not put it back.

    ABikeCam Get dahn, Ernie, he's going for his piece!

    Shingle on driveways. I wouldn't mind, but people always seem to get that little bit too much, chuck it all down anyway and it ends up spilling all over the pavement and into the road. It's a bloody hazard to anyone apart from the driveway owner who probably just drives over it anyway.

    Alexander Armstrong. Is he real, or is he some kind of Alan Partridge style parody? It bothers me that I cant decide.

    That there isn't a standard place for the date on invoices.

    Admin is annoying enough,
    without having to search amongst all the random hieroglyphs for this vital piece of info.

    Could we all just agree it goes top right??

    Or bottom left, even

    I don't really care, where.

    Just stop moving it around OK?? :wacko:
