I’m lucky that I live within 2k of a park and a pitch. The pitch people were very nice and opened up the grounds for us to walk the doggies while there’s no sport taking place but some people are literally taking the piss. They didn’t explicitly ask it but my god, who doesn’t know to pick up your dog ****e in this day and age. I’ve a sneaky suspicion some people are coming from outside the 2k radius as well. A lot of faces I’ve never seen.

People who crush bread in the shop.

Deserved to be barred tbh

My OH is really good in the kitchen. Cannot fault him at all in that regard and he would probably cook more than me in the average week. He can prepare the most amazing meals and they always taste so much better than mine because he puts in more time and effort, little touches etc. However, once everything is ready to be served, he seems to slow right down.

All of the components of the meal will be cooked and ready at the same time, but he will then start faffing around with things, serving everything up really slowly, arranging the stuff nicely on the plate. God forbid you talk to him at this critical point - he will just stop what he is doing and stand there chatting, spatula in hand while everything goes cold. Nine times out of ten what was a perfect meal will need to be thrown into the microwave and ruined.

I can't say anything because he goes to so much effort, but it really TAs me

TL:DR Other half serves the food he cooks too slowly and I get mad because I am spoiled and ungrateful!

A 4k diameter (which is what you are describing here) is an absolutely massive area unless you are living somewhere remote. Where I live that area would cover probably more than 70,000 people.

When you introduce somebody to something you like, a hobby/thread, and they take all the enjoyment out of it.
And you only have yourself to blame.

They are absolutely not from around here. I live in a pretty rural area and twice in the last week I’ve seen travellers arrive in with their massive greyhounds.

Loyalty is a two way street and one good turn doesn’t mean your street is a cul de sac... hope that makes sense.
Yeah that makes sense and I agree with you. I was more referring to people you go out of your way to help but they will turn their back on you without a second's hesitation. Or to simplify it, cúnts.

Do they not fall under the 'where I lay my hat is home' exemption?

TA the pressure!

TA stalking a relative on facebook and she has this big post up (not a paragraph to be seen, you'd swear they were taxed) about how she had to self-isolate and her son had to do the same because his partner is working on the front line, then she got the virus and then something else on top of that, insert some bullsh*t nonsense about how the trees are still blooming, nature prevails etc. (I'm sure the deceased will take comfort in the increasing bumble bee population and realise their deaths were not in vain ), and general blah blah humblebrag/ look how wonderful my life is etc.

I can cope with all of that except - she is also living quite close to me and I know she has been out and about and has had her grandchildren over to visit!

Silly, hypocritical, tree-hugging, attention -seeking and insufferable woman.

(I don't like her)
