    What annoyed you this week ?

    Well I'm bored so thought I'd knock up a new thread about what annoyed everyone this week.

    I met up with a mate who I hadn't seen for ages this week, and just chatting away generally when he said.

    "You really shouldn't over take my g/f when your on the A30 you know"

    I was like heh whats he on about ?

    Aparantly, some months ago (Yes months!!) he was out with her in her car going somewhere, doing about 50/55 down the A30 which is a 70 mph road and I went screaming by them scaring her poopless aparantly. She got all up tight and threatened to report me to the police, have me banned from driving etc.

    I was like yeah well if she's that nervous a driver then she shouldn't be on the roads, I'm not goting to sit behind someone on the A30 if I know that I can over take them safely. Aparantly she nearly drove all the way to my place to give me a piece of her mind. She's not someone you want to make an enemey of.

    But yeah thats what really annoyed me this week.

    I was doing 70 lol Maybe touching on 75, but as we all know speedos aren't accurate anyway. They were theones doing 50/55. i can see why 70 seems like screaming by but heck, you know I've been driving for 5 years, she's still not taken those damn silly P plates off her car yet.

    Perhaps she meant screaming as in
    'AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...H'
    ?

    Anyway, I'm annoyed with work and dogs. Which, I expect is normal for everyone, and you all know, in that order.

    I wanted to say words to that effect to her but in order to keep the peace I thought it was better not to.

    Re: What annoyed you this week ?

    I think this week the thing that has annoyed me most is my 5 year olds spelling tests.
    One because her teacher is a first class bitch, at the end of the day she calls them up and tells them the`re scores,its marks out of 10.The`re given 10 words to learn on a Monday and the test is on a Friday.
    So my little one is called up every week to be told to do better next time blah blah blah,its the fact that the teacher goes out of her way to say it load enough for all the other parents to hear
    gets right on my tits.
    Spelling tests for 5 year old kids is a load of crap if you ask me,she can sit and do them all with me at night time,but i think she is under pressure to get them all right.So as i`ve told her she will learn them when she is good and ready,maybe not the right attitude from a parent,but i don`t want her to fell pressure at school at such a young age.It will or may have an effect on her for the rest of her school life.

    Well reading said extra, I reckon you should complain that your child is being treated unfairly. That should hopefully help things along (so long as the head isn't up their arse too)

    You're more likely to forget things under pressure, look at tv gameshows...
