Whilst in Jarrolds bookshop department I bought `Gwynne`s little book of grammar`. Not so much a nuts and bolts book on where
to stick a semi wotsit but just an insight into the way our language works. Got me thinking is grammar really that important? There
are far more important things in life than correct spelling.

I have decided to treat myself to `Gwynne`s little book of Latin`. Total waste of time and money but I would like to know a bit more
about this dead language that will never die.

Practically all the above get my goat at times. One I would add that really riles me is the arrogance that often takes over successful or wealthy people.
(Not all - but a fair few I've known).

I've actually got an 'O' level in Latin.
You'll be pleased to know that it's been no bloody use to me whatsoever, since I left school.

This kind of ignorance and incompetance makes my blood boil.
Vulnerable kids abandoned by the justice system. I sincerely hope that the case is reopened and perpetrators held to account along with the police and social workers who failed to do their jobs.

Kiddi fiddlers, animal abusers thieves murderers and rapists, and threads being closed just as you post a reply.
Someone just said in the meghan thread that the duke and dutchess of sussex have spent less than 5 hours there since reciving their titles. Queen victoria became emperess of india and never went there.

Most of what's already been said, but a lack of manners, and unnecessary rudeness.

Child molesters elderly abusers,wife batterers, husband batterers, rude people, dishonest politicians ! On a lesser scale people who insist on pushing the rules to see how far they can go and then start whinging when they are called on it !

Just about all the aforementioned but to include .........those incompetent bas*ards who don't realise what a steering wheel is for and simply cannot stay on the left hand side of the road when turning left into a side road.

People who get to the top of an escalator and stop there while they decide which direction they’re going to take.
Airport baggage collection, when the whole family, husband , wife and KIDS stand two foot from the carousel and plant their feet and you have to manoeuvre yourself and your luggage around them, FFS.
