Sometimes.

Hi Obvious Desperate Breakfasts.

Just to say some of us come to boards expecting a primarily textual experience. Embedded videos of this sort are difficult to handle without a warning and I'll be honest skirt the boundary of audio-visual assault. Luckily I had my safety blanket with me, but if you could please think before engaging in video aggression in future that would be great.

That video is like a parody skit. A few years ago I think I read an article joking about clapping being aggressive and yet here we are clapping is actually aggressive and assaulting to some people.

Of course disabled toilets are 'gender neutral' and a lot of times in pubs they end up as store rooms....
The disabled toilets in work were re-labelled a few months ago. The main difference is that any disabled person who might want to use them has less of a chance (and I didn't bother using one of those nice alternatives to 'disabled' on purpose). My sister thought I made it up when I showed her a picture of the door, rather than just the sign.



And before anybody says anything about me being offended, I'm not. I'm just fed-up, and weary of listening to all this sort of talk. (Can excessive eye-rolling affect your sight?)

I'd take them over a vocal typical AH poster any day of the week to be honest, as would the HR departments of any respectable corporate in the world.

You are right, Id be laughing at this on South-park, its hard to believe its people actually being serious. I had to actually search around to work out exactly what the OP was talking about with this he/her thing!! You can tell this generation has no real serious things to worry about when this sort of stuff is being made a thing.


As far as I am concerned it doesn't matter if you are black white, yellow, brown, have dick and/or fanny, you are either a decent person I like spending time with or you arent . . Everything else is irrelevant and if people want to make or imply its relevant, be best you go off and spend your time with sensory overload guy who might be sympathetic to your cause. .

I'd say they would have equal disdain for each.

Its a shame that language has such a catastrophic effect on some people more than others.I was a barman for ten years and its the one part of the trade i miss is telling customers co workers and employers on occasion to **** themselves.

Ill call people by whatever they want to be called but reserve the right to tell people to **** themselves on occasion.

Hadn't seen that video in a while so watched it again just now. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

"Aggressive scent" - amazing.

Anxiety, sensory overload - lots of people have these and always did. It's referred to as easily agitated, jarred. It can indeed be difficult for some, but most people recognise it's not something that makes the world only about them and they harden the **** up and tackle it themselves by sucking up day to day life instead of demanding special treatment.

Yeah, I can’t listen to chalk on a blackboard. It’s painful to my ears. But even as a child, I was very aware that this was nobody else’s problem and that I just had to deal with it. And I did, usually by subtly covering my ears.

As well as that, I just don’t get the rush of some to paint themselves as victims. From my experience, most people will do anything to appear the opposite, to seem resilient in public as a point of pride.

My sister has increasingly become part of the “I find that offensive” brigade and it’s exhausting. We were in a waiting room of a Dublin hospital a few months ago and on the noticeboard was a poster of the All-Ireland winning Dublin team. She said “This hospital might be in Dublin but there’s patients coming here from all over the country. That poster shouldn’t be up, it’s offensive”. Once I got my eyeballs back in to position after they rolled back in my head, I said “So?”. Like, so what if somebody finds something so inoffensive offensive? That doesn’t mean they have to be indulged. It’s all just so goddamn joyless.

For God's sake. I'm from Mayo and while I'm butthurt that Dublin repeatedly stole Sam from us I wouldn't find a picture of the Dublin team in a Dublin hospital offensive. I'll join you in giving your sister It's not like they wanted to put a picture of the Dublin team in Castlebar hospital
