When you are watching a series.and suddenly they change things .

Like your one changed her flat and it wasnt mentioned.And another character had a child,but then left her husband.No mention of the baby.

It just wrecks my head.

I'm still wondering what happened to Laura Holt's black kitty!

Talking about the soaps, roll up and see the amazing vanishing babies and pensioners! They'll disappear before your very eyes!

The sellers don't give a frick once they have got the cash in their claw.

Dare I ask what exorbitant figure the friend is paying for her designer pooch?

and despite them being crappy build terrace and Semi-Ds, you can have blazing arguments, even literally murder someone and your next-door neighbours won't hear a thing.


Also it is funny that the two main staples of soap operas, illicit kissing and punch-up or a hair pulling cat-fight are off-limits now.
It can be hilarious watching how the writers try to get round it.
One girl in Emmerdale threw a tin of beans at another girl's head instead of the usual hair yanking match.
Tough guy characters trying to intimidate each other while maintaing a sensible 2 metre gap at all times

Also loving married couples who don't go anywhere near each other now. It has all got a bit stupid really.
Maybe Beckett style monologues are the way to go: one character appearing per episode (but then they would have to be able to act, wouldn't they )

Totally banjaxes my ears.
Or somebody in front opens their window and you, in the back seat, suddenly find yourself in a wind tunnel

Bonus TA ponts if they are smoking and you get blasted with a carcinogenic smog.

It used to annoy me in Frasier that his son Freddie was hardly ever mentioned. All of the women he went out with, he never told any of them he had a son.

Freddie only visited about three or four times down through the years iirc and Frasier never went to visit him, would hardly even ring him on the phone.
Was everyone's favourite psychiatrist nothing but a dead-beat dad

I didn't even ask to be honest but no doubt it would be enough to feed a shelter dog for a year or neuter 7 or 8 strays. Buyers are just as bad as the sellers IMO, if there was no demand there'd be no supply.

TA mentioned to my mother that I've all my Christmas shopping done. I did it all online, tried to support Irish where I could, and in fairness with the little one this year and heading back to work in January I just don't feel like being part of the panic buying and would rather have it done and forgotten. I even got her something nice.

And her answer was, "yeah you're real cute getting in and getting yours done early aren't you". I felt like saying well fúck you just because I don't go to Penney's on the 23rd December and panic buy fluffy socks for everyone. She just sits there complaining that she "isn't used to online shopping" and asking me to write a list of gift ideas for myself because she's only known me 37 years and doesn't know anything I like. Oh and can I order them for her with my card and then still be surprised when I open them.

The sad thing is a five euro gift that shows she knows anything about me would mean the world. God, I don't even want anything

Snobs - generally speaking anyway but reminded because of the dog story.

A work colleague had a new dog, a “Maltichipomssel” It’s a Maltese-Chihauha-Pomeranian-Jack Russell cross.

That’s a mongrel, sorry!!!.
