My biggest peev is driving with my wife as a passenger.Now do not get me wrong I love this woman and ninety percent of the time we get along great.But I have to tell you when she gets in the passenger seat you would think I am the worst driver to have ever driven on the roads of Seattle.I either drive to close,to slow,to fast,do not look where I am going,play the stereo to loud.It is a surprise to me that our marriage has survived this,but I love her dearly otherwise.

My biggest gripe is all the screaming females on the telly when there is one of those awful reality shows that the BBC seems to keep on showing

jim davis said...

Yeah to both of those. With regards the car, my wife does not drive but she tries to tell me what to do when I am. like pointing to the right and telling me to turn left, and vice -versa. Oh1 I don't like women, but I've got to have one.

Del said...

I can't stand any kind of repetition, particulary sounds. The time pips before news bulletins make me almost homicidal.This isn't helped by the lovely Charlotte who listens to every newsbroadcast all day long and then switches over to the TV to hear it all yet again, but with pictures. Del.

jim davis said...

By the lack of response from the women chaps, it would be reasonable to assume that they think we are pretty good the way we are. Isn't that nice?

georgek said...

Another hate of mine is the BBC paying so called celebrities to go on holidays around the world then televising it just to show us that an eskimo lives in a cold region,or an tribesman lives in a jungle and so on,what a waste of our licence money.Jim I think you are digging that hole again!!,but I do agree with you.

Val B said...

You lot are just a load of grumpy old men.

georgek said...

Is your comment Val B your biggest gripe?

Val B said...

Yeah George, you got it in one.

jim davis said...

Valb that might have something to do with the company we keep.

jim davis said...

Before Christmas George, on all of the chat shows BBC included, there was not one so called guest that appeared without him or her clutching their life story. Parkinson and others that I formally admired sat there book in hand as though it was a comforter, just waiting for it to be mentioned. The sad thing is they showed no embarresment. That was blatent advertising and it is strange how the BBC was allowed to get away with it. There again maybe not when you see how much cheating, stealing, and corruption there is on the T.V. Channels. They have stolen millions and the Police have not even got involved in investigating these blatent criminal acts. So one law for them, and one for us. That ever so slightly annoys me.

Is it my turn yet? JIM, Cant get a word in edgeways with you moaning men. You are so right Val. My pet hate is male chauvenists, who think it is great to put us women in their rightful places, according to men. What is it you have to have one of Jim? and Tom perhaps you are a bad driver, if it makes your wife that nervous. It is a proven fact that women are more careful and have less accidents in a car than men so perhaps you should take more notice of the advice your lovely wife gives you, I agree with you george, particularly on x factor, they dont sing anymore they shout.

jim davis said...

What we have to have one of is a woman Yvonne. They do have some uses you know. If women do have less accidents, it is probably because the are combing their hair, doing their war paint and driving so slow it causes accidents because people get so frustrated with them and have to take chances to get past them.

Tommy said...

Usually they are on their cell phones,stuck in their ear,with their right turn signal on and they are trying to turn left.When you try and be nice and explain what they are doing you usually finish up getting the finger.

yvonneh said...

Are american women really like that Tom, we are very polite over here and we have strict laws regarding mobile phones, in fact not so long ago two MALE lorry drivers involved in serious accidents were using mobile phones. One ploughed into a mini bus full of youngsters. When I see a man making gestures at me from a car I just laugh at them and if he tries to ride my bumper I just go slower, I am very polite to these road hogs.
and Jim your remarks just emphasise what I was saying.It wasnt so long ago that you used to go around with a comb in your hand to make sure you had a quiff like cookie and looked pretty.

jim davis said...

Excuse me Yvonne I have no proplems one way or the other with Poofs, but I am not one of them. Well I don't think I am. But I do know I have never been pretty in my life. So there.

jim davis said...

Well said Tom I think we have proved driving and women don't mix.

I don't have any pets to get peeved at anymore, but I did used to like the taste of the gripe water we got as kids.

Hi there Jim. my wife can drive When we was courting she used to drive like lunatic. Now i can not let her drive she drives me mad. wont change gear rides around in third gear all the time. Yet when i take over she is saying you was to near that car. I would say to her i never hit did i. I remember a few us blokes watching this women trying to reverse her car into a parking space . after five attemps. She was nearly in tears. i went up to her and do you mined if i do it.What do think straight in. They just can not reverse.Mined you can not live with out mine. she is 41 and im 68. been married 19 years. When i was married to her a couple of months my mates came around to see me knock on the door the wife opened it to them and they said is your dad in. That is always happening even today.A bit of useless information
