Not sure if this is more suited to the 'little things that annoy you' thread but, I dont think it's a 'little thing.'

 

Old girl just been reading out some comments on an article that Id seen before. It's from people who, Im guessing, are in the 20 to 35 age bracket and have kids.

 

In line with 'giving up' their pets, these inadequates are sharing thoughts about wishing they didnt have children, can they give them up and referring to their children as 'the kid' and pining for a carefree life!

 

Now dont get me wrong, I know children can be a drain, trying, pita and all the rest but these dont seem to be people just a bit down. They're full on 'I dont want the responsibility' or 'the baggage' of children and somehow think their lives will suddenly become free from issues because they've ditch the kids.

 

I dont know what's going on in the world today. Some of the shite I see makes me feel very, very old.

Going for a hair cut and seeing your 'thinning spot' for the first time, then getting home and having the Mrs say she can call you her Silver Fox nowadays.

I had similar the other week and it scared the shit out of me. I know I'm getting a bit thin on top but went for a trim and the Turkish fella sprayed water on my hair and combed it flat and all I could see in the mirror was scalp shining through.

Its a great song but 'changing the musical meaning of alternative forever.' Get over yourselves.

If you were going to call this breed of 90s grunge anything, you could try 'quiet quiet loud quiet loud loud loud'.

Had a leaflet in today's post. '7 reasons why a fuss free cremation might be more you'.

 

FUCK. OFF.

What? You want a few Roman candles thrown in as well?

You two gentleman of a certain age might want to think about this, looks amazing, though you’ll be dead so not feel the benefits.

You reckon it hurts or something?

Just seems a little, I don't know, undignified. Your remains cleansed from this world by the ancient purity of fire, then they say fuck it, let's smash up the those leftover bits that won't fit into a biscuit tin.

Yeah, I've tried to ignore that but it's getting more and more difficult. 
The other thing that pissed me off was when the barber said 'Do you want me to trim your eyebrows too?' 
FUCK. OFF!

The average age of this forum must already be quite high and getting higher all the time as the regulars age and we don't have much fresh blood coming through the ranks.

 

Usher's got a massive rebuild on his hands soon.
