arguments splitting tips when friends go out.
children running around restaurants and parents ignoring
people with too much hand luggage on planes

What posts do you miss?

On the same lines, moans about less than proficient swimmers clogging up the fast lane when there’s a perfectly good slow lane for them to use.

Yes, Witzend. My local pool (a dim, distant memory) had to reorganise the pool lanes and put a member of staff on duty as well as the lifeguard to make sure the doggy paddle splashers were in their proper place. smile

I never used the fast lane anyway, but what bothered me was pairs of women (always women I’m afraid) standing nattering at the shallow end of the slow lane, so blocking me from reaching the end and a swift turnaround - when there was a large area of the pool reserved for doing whatever you like - including nattering at the shallow end. 🤬

A little off piste but I couldn't help but smile - when scrolling through the list of posts my attention was caught by "I miss posts about" ... "Fishnet stockings". Well, it tickled me.

Blame Brexit, Covid and the proposed Indy2.
So much going on at present.
These are indeed ‘unprecedented times’.
