The chronically and apparently irretrievably bad level of spelling, grammar and general English on many internet sites, certainly including, I'm sorry to say, this forum.
I'm sure their is a thread about this somewhere.

On the other hand, I think you may be about to find that Anglo-Saxon is written impeccably here.

But I might be wrong...
No signature worth mentioning...
Did you do that one word at a time?

Oh God, yes...
Hah, I looked on line for a converter so I could say something rude, but got bored when I couldn't find one that did sentences. Kudos for committing to the joke!
It probably would have been easier (and a damn sight quicker) if I had the faintest idea about tenses and declentions and all that guff admittedly.
Whats that got to do with the price of beef???

When you are watching a film that you have recorded off the tv & you are bursting for the loo, you press pause, do the business, come back & press play & 30 seconds later the adverts come on.
I don't remember seeing this thread....here goes
Bank bosses that earn obscene wages and bonuses
Almost everything about Ferrari
Taxis who think they own the road
Members of our useless parliament
The woman who lives by me who takes her only child 300 yards to school in her 4x4 when it is raining
Litterers, but particularly those who throw their litter on the floor when they're within 20ft of a bin (as an example)
The fact that this country once ruled the world, and now we're next to useless
Ads for starving third world children on TV when I'm eating my dinner/tea
Said ads that only let you know that children are dying - adults die too, but don't mention because our guilt wouldn't be so great
That there are dealers out there who are killing their own industry
Obscene wages for sportsmen (sorry, celebrities) that continually underperform
Treading on a mains plug in bare feet

Agree with David 100%, except to add:
Dealers that promise you the earth, but fail to deliver
Some good ones there.
Panasonic 50GT50, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series & B&W PV1.
Personally, I'd never promise the earth - that's a big ask!
In fact, I never promise anything unless I'm in total control of the situation, because there's always something ready to set you back and make you break your promise...
Some hi-fi shop opening hours. Closed Sundays, closed Mondays, closed Wednesday afternoons, don't open until 10:00 am (on any working day), staff training until 12:00 on Thursdays, never open on any bank holiday, closed during any large delivery, closed if there are two booked demos occurring at the same time... etc.
When did their shop assistants morph into 'Home Audio Consultants' ? And when did the 'fitter from the telly shop' turn into an 'Audio-Visual Installation Architect' ?

- Sealed packets that I can't open.
- People who keep driving through the red light at road works, eating into your "green time".
- Trollys with a mind of their own.
- Donny Osmond
- People who f@rt in lifts
- Over cooked veg
- Flat Packs
- Wasps and earwigs
- Poodles, especially in jackets
I better stop, as I'm now getting annoyed just thinking about it!
