Room 101: 1500+ Words of Unadulterated Therapy

AdvantagesGetting lots of pent up frustrations off my chest

DisadvantagesIt's a LOT of pent up frustration!

"...the next light change. So what does numpty do? The second the light goes green, he decides he’s going right after all, and belatedly, flicks on his indicator. Of course, now I have to wait for oncoming traffic to give him a gap so he can turn. Meanwhile, the line of cars to my left file on past in nose to tail formation, their drivers smirking at me in barely disguised glee at my misfortune with not the slightest hint of a gap for me to duck into ..."

"Stop - That's My Goat You've Got!"

AdvantagesThe world would certainly be a better place. For me, anyway...

DisadvantagesThere may not be enough room for everything!

"...generally, but damn, I know what I like and what I don't. The word isn't 'negative', it's 'discerning'. I am a lady of impeccable taste, after all, and us ladies don't like to waste our time on rubbishy things not worthy of our concern. So without further ado, let me introduce the things I would consign to the shadowy depths of Room 101 so they would never cause me bother again. Harsh Reality I'm really, really, really fed up with Reality TV. ..." Read review

A GAME OF TITANIC DECKCHAIRS? I HOPE NOT!

AdvantagesSome of the savings to the environment actually save you money

DisadvantagesSome don't but we still need to grasp that nettle

"...hell dey all about, eh? Or, what about those people who seem to have little shopping, so you get in the 'shortest' queue behind them at the checkout, only to find that there's a whole enlarged family unit of Artful Dodgers out there returning extra items to the Fagin with the trolley just in time for the assistant to 'bar-code' them, leaving you no nearer the front than you were 10 minutes ago? On the subject of supermarket queues, what about ..." Read review

room 101! Review with images

Advantagesfeel much better to get it off my chest

Disadvantagesits not real

"...are being paid so much, what makes it worse is the fact they spend money buying designer clothes, posh food and expensive holidays and not even considering to give a small potion to charity. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie are just one example of celebrities caring for others; she gives 1/3 of her pay cheque to charity. Also all the volunteer work she does as well. If most celebrities did this it will help so much to the disadvantaged people or ..." Read review

My room 101 is filling up

Advantagessome..?

Disadvantagessome..?

"...ailments of the week or what they saw Johnnie doing with some ones wife last Thursday evening… but the ones that really irritate me the most are the shoppers that seem to find it funny to pack there bags with the speed of a snail and then decide to pay… by bloody credit card… staring at me as if I was trying to spy their pin number…(2435 if you're reading this that bloke in Asda last Thursday… watch where the box is pointing instead of watching me ..."

Big Cooks Aren't Always A Good Thing

AdvantagesWhat fun to have a good bitch

Disadvantagesit's all just a dream

"...music magazines that really aren't what they were in my day (when women were allowed to play guitar) and the Gay Times, which is brilliant, intelligent and has the most hilarious sex line adverts in the world and seriously horny looking guys. In you go, dears... In Drawer 101? Nah. This IS a patriarchial society after all and that's why misogynists go to Iceland. FORMER SMOKERS: Not you who have empathy and are lovely, but those who are ..." Read review

What'd go in my Room 101?

AdvantagesI'm getting this stuff off my chest

DisadvantagesI'm offloading it to you :)

"...they refuse to work in what they class as menial jobs. For example, "Back home I was a qualified hairdresser, I'm not working as a junior hairdresser again!" or "I was a Finance Manager back home and you want me to work as an accounts assistant?" Oh dear. I could go on for hours about this. When full time jobs are available and people refuse to take them, this winds me up no end… Stop me now! On top of the above, I've had endless people telling ..." Read review

Is it full yet? Review with images

AdvantagesColloquial term for people who have sex for money.

DisadvantagesShort form of "convicts" . Prisoners. Lags. People at Her Majesty's Pleasure.

"...the toilet, he assumes that’s what the silver handle on the side is for, so I have to do it. And (iii) “Dirty Dirt” That’s everyone else’s germ-infested muck and grime. And the prize for worst offender goes to: >>DRUM ROLL ..." Read review

Banished to Scarlet’s Den of Iniquity

AdvantagesYou will get an idea of what a bitch I am

DisadvantagesYou will definitely know I am a big bitch

"...they relabelled it Sodium, therefore what was 50% Salt now becomes “5% Salt and 45% Sodium and they will charge me 20% more for it…but what the Hell I THINK I’m a lot healthier for eating the manufactured crap and they definitely are a lot wealthier. Err no way Jose……….I didn’t fall off a Christmas tree! The next into my den would be: Pneumonia, Pneumatic, Knight, Knave, Knife, Psychology, etc………the dreaded silent letters. Can anyone out ..."

Hypocrites and Diet Pepsi Review with images

AdvantagesGot some stuff off of my chest!

DisadvantagesToo many horrible/odd people around!

"...me he couldn't care less what I thought, tied the shaking dog to a sign and walked into the shop. I hurried off home and spoke to an rspca lady, who told me the matter would be dealt with. I got a phone call the next day from a man who told me he had spoken with the 'man' (more like mouse!) in question who said he was very sorry and he 'slipped' into the road. Erm, yeah okay. Well I will be keeping my eye out from now on for this idiot and I always ..." Read review

In an Ideal World...Where We're Free to Choose.?

AdvantagesFrustration release!

DisadvantagesNone!

"...CHOOSE etc etc amen, but what they sell is absolutely diabolical in terms of content, and the supermarkets have about 80% of the market. They are decimating town centres, as we are forced to drive to out of town locations to buy food (well the pound shops in Ayr that have replaced them, don’t do much in the way of nutritious food either). They treat their suppliers like dirt, and this has an impact on the employees, and suppliers, who fight like tooth ..." Read review

We Wish You A Happy Ringtone... Review with images

AdvantagesMy spleen is now vented

DisadvantagesI may just have upset a few people

"...seemed to make any difference what day or time I’ve arrived, Peterborough has always tried to impede my progress with its traffic system. Admittedly I’ve never been there at night – maybe it’s possible to get from one side to the other within minutes at midnight but I’ve got no intention of spending a night out in that unlovely city, whose only redeeming feature as far as I’m concerned is a steam railway. And if that has to go into Room 101 with the ..." Read review

Elffriend

Elffriend shows her dark side.

AdvantagesTime I had a rant

DisadvantagesHope theres enough room.

"...I taking my Thyroxin tablets. What Thyroxin? It turned out I had an under active thyroid gland that had gone undiagnosed on three prior blood tests. I was too shocked to say a thing; I took the prescription, had a stiff drink and went on the Internet. I found out just how dangerous it could be, I went to the chemists and discussed it with my pharmacist, who knows me well. I could see how difficult she found it not to criticise my doctors, but she ..." Read review

Please can I use rooms 101 - 110? Updated!

AdvantagesGood riddance to bad rubbish!!! Hooray!!!

DisadvantagesOne room is just not enough!!!

"...everyone... Thanks for stopping by... Now... What would I put in ROOM 101? The sort of stuff of nightmares that George Orwell himself couldn't have dreamed up. Big Brother is not watching... after reading over my list he whimpered like a little girl and is now hiding behind the couch and is refusing to come out. The following list is not in any particular order... and is certainly not exhaustive! How much time do we have? ------------------------------ MONDAY ..." Read review

Room 101? I'd be better with Street 101!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesEverything

"...lead me to think about what things really get my back up. Now, as the title suggests, there are a number of things that are guaranteed to have me hopping mad (and I don't like exercise, as a rule). But, since one of the things is reviews that are unnecessarily long, I thought I'd better narrow it down to the three things that will result in steam coming out of my ears whilst I'm hopping up and down like a lunatic. ===Supermarket shopping at ..."
