The must do's and don'ts of Dinner etiquette Review with images

AdvantagesHe said what?

DisadvantagesGet me a bottle of single malt....

"...sayings known to me to 10 was not only impossible but would, if attempted through heavy editing, leave aside a whole raft of 'sayings' that to this day leave me in a state of shock only equalled by standing naked on a wet towel and jamming my fingers into the most local of sockets whilst enduring the background drone of The Lighthouse Family. So this review topic has sat somewhat lacking in the deepest darkest recess of my Ciao 'Draft' section. However, ..." Read review

ANGELINA SAYING NO IS THE MOST ANNOYING BLOW

AdvantagesCant really say

DisadvantagesThey get on my wick

"Why Do Such Trivial Things Annoy Us. I had been thinking about what to write about next and as I have already took two ideas from Beatlesgal25 I decided that I would have a go at doing a challenge that the great hiker did just under a week ago, so here goes. 1. "Are you in the Computer". Now this one I both hate and enjoy and use it to have a laugh. Without fail everyday the girl in work does a complete backup of the computer system. ..." Read review

How to get on my nerves.

AdvantagesErm, none

Disadvantagesreally irritating

"I am a pretty irritable person. Most people rub me up the wrong way with their little idiocies. In fact, I know very few people who don't use these stupid sayings on a daily basis. So here, for you all to enjoy, are the ten things that reall get on my nerves. 10. Eurgh, thats horrible. taste that! Hello, you just said it was disgusting. Why the hell would I taste it now? think about it, Thicko. Top of my list of things not to do is taste that ..." Read review

A nasty turn of phrase...

AdvantagesNone. Zero. Zilch. Nil.

DisadvantagesUse them at your peril

"..."yeah" back in response every 10 seconds, I'm like a nodding yes-man. SNAPPY RESPONSE None needed, as a question hasnt actually been asked. Try a blank stare without uttering a single word. 9 HE THINKS HE'S THE BEES KNEES ******************************************** What's so special about the knees of a bee? In fact do bees HAVE knees? We're presumably talking about someone who rates himself very highly, but why use this bizarre phrase? ..." Read review

Onions!!

AdvantagesNone!!!

DisadvantagesDon,t even start me!!

"As i get increasingly closer to old age ( I'm 26 ) I am finding more things to gripe about. ( someone tell me wat a gripe is, is it a ripe grape? ) This worries me somewhat because i fear that i will be a very grumpy old man ( albiet a very handsome one ), chasing kids with hoverboards away from my front garden with a stick. Anyway after much debate with myself i have picked ten. Here goes.................. 1) ''I'll will wipe that smile of your ..." Read review

Is the Pen Mightier than the sword?

AdvantagesIt passed the time.

Disadvantagessee review

"I’ve had a crappy day stuck in a hospital being x-rayed, poked and prodded and once again letting the vampires get at my blood, they must have collected more of mine over the years than Dracula ever got. So. I’m feeling a bit poorly, not up to doing a serious review and there’s nothing on TV, I have writer’s block and none of the “ten Most” categories inspired me, so you get stuck with this one. I actually thought there was a category for old sayings ..." Read review

Are You Having A Bubble?

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesAnnoying

"Sayings, phrases, words. We all use them. But what crap some people to talk, like: 10. "Yep, All Day" ------------------------ *Used by* Grandparents or smart arses *Gist* So, I'm a bit disorientated or I'm distracted and I ask someone: "Is it Thursday today?" and some smartarse, goes: "Yep, all day". Now why can't they just say: "yes"? Mind you, I can see their point. Whay am I asking someone what the day is, anyway? I should know ..." Read review

Don't You Dare Say It......

AdvantagesIf you want to see steam from my ears, these'll do the trick

DisadvantagesThey'll probably wind you up too

"I'm normally a placid, laid-back kinda guy. My friends love to use me as the butt of their jokes as they frequently say I'm the least-likely person to be offended by their remarks. So it takes a bit to wind me up, but I have to say that as I read through other reviews for this particular topic, several sayings popped into my mind as the kind that will just push me over the top a little. Normally they result in at least a snort of derision, occasionally ..." Read review

Make My Blood Boil!

AdvantagesPlain Annoying!

DisadvantagesPlain Annoying!

"...so here we go... ~ Number 10 ~ "Mother knows best" Yes she undoubtably does but when you're in a sonking bad mood you don't want to hear about your mother's past experiences and her indeniably telling you that she's "told you so!" ~ Number 9~ "I can't hear you" Mid-flow of an argument, you know you've got the upper hand until... your childish opponent decides to do what they do best and be a right pain (otherwise you wouldn't be ..."

IF YOU SAY IT, I MAY HAVE TO KILL YOU!

Advantageshopefully mildly amusing

Disadvantagespossibly not

"There’s lots of annoying sayings in the world. Or maybe there’s just annoying people. Since I’m at a bit of a loose end in work today, I thought I’d pick the best of the worst. “IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME” Which is just another way of saying “It IS you.” Everyone knows what this saying REALLY means and look at it this way, if you just tell the truth, you don’t have to use as many words. Result! “CHEER UP LOVE, IT MIGHT NEVER HAPPEN” God, ..." Read review

You Don't Say!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesAll ten of them

"It's a kind of Ciao tradition to write a cafe based review when bringing up the century of reviews, so to be a sheep (no, not 'do' a sheep you smutty devils) I've decided to honour this tradition. Just to be a slightly obstinate ovine though it's not a Ciao based review, more a rant about some of the sayings we hear uttered every day. These are in no particular order as they're all equally annoying. 1) THERE'S PLENTY MORE FISH IN THE SEA The ..." Read review

Disadvantages-

"There are a lot of sayings and phrases I really can't stand, far too many for me to list here. Hope you enjoy reading my rant. for thats all it is really, and hopefully you can identify with a few of these yourself. So, my top ten annoying sayings are as follows! 10) Cat got your tongue? I really, really cannot stand this saying. It just sounds incredibly stupid. Firstly, how would the cat have got my tongue without me noticing? I'm very sure ..." Read review

Dial-A-Cliche (or two)

Advantageser...

Disadvantagescliched, overused, or just plain annoying.

"...it's on with the show... 10. Random Nothing wrong with this word in its correct useage, but lately it has been overused by young people. A lot of teens use it in a way that seems synonymous with "loser" or "weirdo". They make it sound like an insult: "You're so random!" It is often used when someone does something slightly out of the ordinary, like changing the subject or revealing they have an eclectic or unexpected taste in music, food, ..." Read review

AdvantagesSomeday It will Be Acceptable To Shoot People

DisadvantagesNot Soon Enough

"...White Widow for a while). 10. ooohhh it never rains but it pours Thanks for stating the bloody obvious you miserable twonk. I like the rain it is refreshing and it keeps boring people inside cause they are scared of getting wet on the way to the pub, so the heavier the better. 9. Lightning never strikes in the same place twice What a stupid thing to say and it is a lie as well cause lightning does strike in the same place twice quite ..." Read review
