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 ..."

Those Little Annoyances

AdvantagesYou can help rid the world of them

DisadvantagesYou wish you hadn't been reminded

"...out here. I had no idea what spawned these frequent tirades, until one day I was told “You should read a good quality newspaper every once in a while”, and had a copy of the Daily Mail hurled at me from afar. Having only really read the Times previously, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I found more pessimism in the first 15 pages than any other time in my life before (sparing one special day in Sunday school when I was told that about 90% of the ..." Read review

Volvos, nudey clubs and Nigel Kennedy! Review with images

AdvantagesI feel better now

DisadvantagesI have upset students

"...hair for a Mohican anymore. What puzzles me most about his guy is why he needs to put on the 'mockney' ascent to try and sell music that was only ever going to be bought by people from his same social class? He is a great violinist, make no mistake, and acclaimed by his piers, yet he still puts on this bizarre working-class front? What a complete tool. -Lewis Hamilton's dad- Ok, you have produced a fantastic son and worked hard to get him ..." Read review

The vile pit which is my room 101

AdvantagesI wish I could really get rid of these things

DisadvantagesShame I can't

"...here is my take on what should be despatched to the depths of room 101. Some serious, some less so, but all things which annoy me in one way or another. 10. LUSH ====== Sorry ladies, maybe it's me being a typical bloke, but what is so great about Lush. I have to admit that I like the ethics behind the company naturally, handmade products which no animal ingredients and no animal testing. But what I don't understand is why anyone would put ..."

I'M OFF ON ONE AGAIN!

Advantagesi get some more ranting off my chest

Disadvantagesyou have to listen (or read, i suppose!!!)

"...two at any second, thinking what a bad influence they are on all these impressionable girls . . . and then wondering what diet they went on and if I should try it! That's what makes me so mad, the fact that I KNOW they look unhealthy, but I still have this desire to look like them. And its ridiculous, when I'm under nine stone and a size 10, that I feel this way, but I can't help it. And if I feel that way, I know there must be other people who do. ..." Read review

What Steve would put into room 101!!!!!!!!!!!

AdvantagesI HATE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DisadvantagesTHEY DONT REALLY DISAPPEAR YOU KNOW

"...and Kerry McFadden split, and what pub Charlotte Church has been photographed falling out of ( I just need to know these things, I simply couldn't sleep at night without knowing ), then after all that I go to the problem pages were I laugh at the men with erection problems, size issues and ladies with warts on their rude bits. But somewhere during my reading time a girl or a whole group of them swarm around my table. Now don't get me wrong, any other ..." Read review

Dididave puts himself in!

AdvantagesI get to have a bit of a rant.

DisadvantagesYou poor people get to listen.

"...Europe too, make of this what you will. If this lot doesn't convince you to put Skelmersdale in Room 101 nothing will! On a slightly more controversial note my third choice is POLITICAL CORRECTNESS. I truly believe the world has gone mad in the last ten years regarding PC. Let me give you some examples. 1: Brainstorming is now politically incorrect as people with brain damage may become upset. It is now called......wait for it starbursting! 2: ..." Read review

And the nominations are...

AdvantagesThere are no advantages

DisadvantagesThe list would be longer than the review

"What I’d put in Room 101 Having read snootyjim’s opinion in this category, I’ve been smitten by the muse and decided to key in my own effort. Slightly tongue-in-cheek, so no offence intended. You’re allowed to skim down to the last one if you really must. > I guess you probably know what I’m talking about here. I’ve been surrounded by international-standard farters all my life; my dad, brothers and, ..." Read review

To bin or not to bin...

AdvantagesGuilt free way to slag things off

DisadvantagesThose things cannot defend themselves

"...other they began to resemble what I imagine Hell might be like for Thomas the Tank Engine. Not to babble on too much here are the summarised points of why I hate train commutes: * My trains never seem to be on time and are subject to delays on average three times a week. A selection of reasons for delays on my train line thus far include: points failures; signal failures; level crossing failures; leaves on the line; trees on the line; wet snow on ..." Read review

Get Out Of My Life !!! Review with images

AdvantagesA chance to get some pet hates off my chest !

DisadvantagesI hope I don't offend anyone !!!

"...end was very helpful, but what happened to the old system ? I know it's a cliche, but I used to work in a bank branch and we used to have around 70 staff there. We used to get telephone calls all day, every day, and we were always there to help. Nowdays, when you phone, you are likely to get put through to an operator in India or Pakistan who knows nothing about you, your circumstances or daily UK life ! Another example was when I phoned a car insurance ..." Read review

Go away!

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"...people, but don't they realise what a state they look? They look awful! That said, the stuff they wear for school look positively nun-like when you see what they wear normally - why bother even putting on any clothes when you wear so little anyway?! SPITTING ON THE STREET A lot of guys I know do this and I just don't see the point in it. I don't really mind too much when they do it on grass or on flowerbeds, because it will be soaked up, but ..." Read review
