Sky Sports News. No, you’ve not uncovered the latest Watergate, you’ve not got an insight on how to solve Brexit to the satisfaction of all, and you haven’t discovered a cure for all diseases and poverty world wide.

So stop with the massive breaking news dominating all the headlines today banner scrolling announcements as though you have. So Leeds spied on Derby and Fabregas has gone to Monaco - seriously, while it might be mildly interesting to some it’s never going to get you a Nobel or Pulitzer Prize so get over yourselves, especially you Jim White you colossal tit.

There is someone in the staff canteen who slurps his tea. After 30 minutes of this I could throttle him.

The Tesco petrol station I stopped at last night. All lit up like Christmas, no cones, nozzles not covered etc. Put my card in the machine, payment authorised, screen says ‘pick up nozzle to begin fueling’. I can’t because the nozzle is locked and the station is closed!! W T F!

If the nozzle was locked why did you put your card in? Are the locks not visible?

Tesco will usually only leave one bank of dressers open overnight, locking the remainder. Maybe a look around would have found pumps ready to serve?

Locks not visible unless scrutinised. I will counter that with why are the damn card machines active if the place is closed.

Whole thing closed, although seemed open due to lack of cones and all lights on.

Are you both Tesco management? Ha!

No, just curious. It was a genuine question BTW as I always thought you could see the locks, although it’s been years since I bought fuel late at night so wouldn’t know.

As you can tell, I’m still annoyed beyond reason by it. Ha!

FWIW I was in the pay at pump only lane, having used this location for fuel a week ago. Most odd.

Media hype of tennis achievement.

Particularly the (abused) term Grand Slam. Once upon a time to win one my understanding was you had to hold the title at multiple national championships in one calendar year. A very difficult achievement.

But today I learn Mr Federer has won 20. And Mr. Murray 3.

I had a similarly annoying experience in a petrol station in Salisbury many years ago. I pulled into the forecourt and saw a few people inside, so assumed they were open. Pulled up to a pump, opened the fuel cap and put the nozzle in. All the while the people in the shop were looking at me. I waited about 30 seconds for them to authorise, this being before pay at pump I was not at the wrong pump so had no idea why they didn't turn it on. Then they went over the tannoy and announced sarcastically 'we're closed'. I mean what did you think I was trying to do when I pulled up? Why didn't you just hold your arms up to make an X or something so I didn't faff about with your pump when I wasn't going to get any fuel?

People who deliberately make the road narrower for no apparent reason. Yesterday driving home from a day out with the family, get near home where there's always a long line of parked cars on the left, but the roads wide enough to get a car down and a bus up. I know this as it's a bus route and a regular route for me and there's never any issue. However yesterday, someone in a Ford Focus decided to be a prick and when he saw me coming down the road, decided to position his car right on the centre line and drive at me while flashing his lights. He came bloody close to hitting us as well, before swerving round us blaring his horn. If there's room to be a prick like that and swerve round at the last second, why not just be a normal human being and allow room? Funny thing is, about 50 feet in front of me was a new shape Micra which he had no issue with!? Times like that which make me thing of joining the dashcam warriers and purchasing one.

So had you been a dashcam warrior what would you have done with the footage?

Valid point, as I'd have done nothing as the police wouldn't be interested! Seems footage like that is only good for Youtubers channels.
