    I heard on the radio the other week that a German IT company is contractally banning bad moods and moaning in the office.

    This annoyed me a bit, as it has two major flaws.
    1) They are Germans. I've worked in Germany for a while, and there's nothing they like better than moaning. It's a profession.
    2) It's an IT company (copy and paste from above).

    That would be like telling a Brit that they can't have a nice cup of tea, or an American that you shouldn't wear socks with shorts.

    Anyway. In retaliation, I thought of setting up an Room 101 on the forum. Any takers?
    Does Sellotape get you mad when you're p1ssed?
    Can't use clingfilm?
    Or should we keep it vaguely IT?

    You posted in the Lounge mate - no need for "vaguely IT"

    OK, Boy Bands !!! Sickly saccharin sweet mass-marketed carbon-copy puke-inducing talentless puppets to further line the pockets of the record company execs by conning millions of teeny girls (and probably no few boys too) into buying plastic (nae, polystyrene) music and sh1t€ merchandise !!!

    Apart from Busted. I like Busted (for my daughter, you understand) I, erm, she was gutted when they split.

    So am I allowed Boy Bands ? I don't know- oh, this is so confusing ........:oops:

    And your point? :dry :tongue

    I take it that "Room 101" is where you can p*ss and moan about things but why is it called Room 101? :blink

    George Orwell wrote in 1984 that room101 is where everything you hate most resides, Trip.

    For me, it has to be DVDs.

    No DVDs in general, I love the little things and my VHS tapes give me a shudder when I have to use one.

    No, I mean bossy DVDs.
    The ones that make you sit through half an hour of copyright info and a couple of trailers before you get to the menu.
    They disable all the buttons on the remote that allow you to fast forward or skip to the menu.
    Any attempt to inferfere plonks a big notice on the screen saying something like 'Action is forbidden by disk'.

    How dare it!
    Forbid me to use my own DVD machine?

    The worst on is on my little combi-telly thing from a dodgy foreign company which, in order to communicate effectively across national boundries, simply displays the palm of ha had raised outwards with the arrogance of a policeman directing traffic.

    'Oi, you, STOP'.

    Hateful. :x

    People who 'bite' the end of their jumpers and grind the wool in their teeth.

    Reality TV shows - Why do we put up with watching a group of people sitting around doing nothing? Seriously give me the money and I will stick a camera in my house and you can watch me read the paper or go for a p1ss! Any I hate so called 'celebrity' shows.

    The only good thing about them is they keep the missus happy :D

    Rant over...for now! :x

    Clingfilm.

    I remember an old Dave Allen scetch that summed it up perfectly.
    Why is it when my wife tears off a piece of clingfilm, it's like a sheet of glass. When I try it, I end up with three feet of plastic rope? And why is it that you can unwrap a piece of cheese, eat half the cheese then find out that the same piece of clingfilm is suddenly too small to wrap the remains of the cheese back up? Surely it should be too big?
