It has occured to me that I'm quite intelligent, ok, I have the odd day where I go looking for my glasses only to find their allready on my face, but compared to the average person on the street, I'm an A class genius.



This thread is for ranting at how stupid people can be, I'm focusing on tourists, neds, chavs, shoppers and suits. please, add your rant here.



Here's a few from me:



Why do Neds/Chavs think it's cool to tuck their track suit trousers into their white socks?



Why do people entering or exiting a shop or shopping centre via double doors, all try to squeeze through one door then look at anyone who opens the other door as if they are a witch fit for burning?



Why, in a city full of university students, can't anyone press the button at a set of traffic lights? I arrive at a crossing to find a crowd of dull faced suits and students waiting for the magical change of the red man into a green man and that magical beeping, not one of them has pressed the button and it's burried somewhere in that crowd, so we have to either bash our way through and press it, shout at the person nearest it or wait till the lights come on in the zombie nearest it.



How come it costs 1.10 for a tin of coke in a pub?!



Why do tourists get so enthusiastic about seagulls, honestly, the amount of times I've bumped into one sho stops dead in my path to photo an effing gull is just stupid, and they walk in that dazed zig zag pattern that sends locals reeling in all directions.



Why can't taxi drivers count and give the correct change?

hehehe, we have killer gulls! horrible things! smelly, ugly, noisy.... I saw two of them ripping a pigeon to pieces on the way to work a while back at 7 in the morning, not good to see after a heavy night! they're so bad in some areas that the local bird of prey centres are employed to use their harris hawks to kill them, after reports of them attacking school kids. See, Alfred Hitchcock was RIGHT!

I've recently seen a pack of biscuits where the picture on the side, the picture of a biscuit that is obviously the size of your head, has beneath it "biscuit shown not actual size"..... well DUH!

One of my old bosses has a plasma screen TV with a sticker on it saying "this appliance is not dishwasher proof"..... Well DUUUUHHHHH!!!!

I mean, how stupid are people that they need things like this stated?

Aye, our's are trained by the great seagull god to nick chips (that's a warm fried potato chip that's served with fish and has salt and vinegar on, just some info for our international friends) out of your fingers as soo as you try to put it in your mouth!

So your's are winning the inland battle??

The magpie's here are waaaaaaaaaaay to smart for our seagulls. i swear they organise like and underground (or abovegound...) army/movement.

but that may just be my perspective, i was a paper boy for a few years, aka their target/sport/play-thing...

I hear the magpies you have are way different to our magpies, yours like to chase people, ours like to nick shiny things, yours are big, ours are small, yours can sing, ours sound like celine dion with her throat kicked in.

Our gulls were winning, till recently, now it seems the crows are on the increase and are kicking back! hooray!

A baby seagull fell into our coutyard once and we were too scared of it to go out there. We called him Steven (Steven Seagull-get it?! ubblol ), threw some tuna at him when he didn't leave after a few days and called animal control.

I have often been woken up by the voice of seagulls fighting outside my bedroom window..it's the only time I really really hate living by the sea...

Why do some people walk in the middle of a cycle path and when you approach them from behind and ring your bell to warn, they turn around ever so slowly to look what it is (duh, you're on a cycle path!) instead of just moving immediately to the side, so that you still have to brake?!

Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

it's really called ba ba rainbow sheep?! that's ridiculous!
although, it would be cool! there'd be no need to dye wool, it would transform the knitting and crochet world!

Why can't roberstons jam have those old G******g dolls, they were great and I never thought of them as a racist thing when I sat down to eat my marmalade on toast, I was a kid...... Why are adults so caught up in complaining, criticising, moaning and either telling someone they are wrong or believeing they are wrong themselves? Societies stolen our youth!

Nearly every time we get on a bus recently the same thing happens, a group of neds(chavs) get on the bus and one holds a fag butt he's obviously picked up of a bin, holding it like it's a spliff and blows smoke over the other passengers laughing, the other two carry on a conversation which goes like this:



"Oi, did ye see ut whun aah hit tha guy?"

"yeah, it was well wicked"

"aah luv hittin peepl, I'm so hard, I'm 15 and aah reckn aah can get into strip clubs and score wiv gurls init"

"yeah man, an if you get stopped at a nightclub you can jus hit the guy!"

"look at that twat hippie wiv glasses"



Gods, they are just so stupid! how can anyone get pleasure out of spending their days hitting people? what is that?
