Biscuit wrappers I can’t open without a fucking machete! Add to that cd wrappers , then it clings to your hand when you’ve got it off ffs !

I'm completely with you on the CD wrappers. In fact all sorts of packaging drives me nuts. I ordered some teeny batteries for a lighty uppy Christmas decoration and it took me fifteen minutes to get three of them out of the packaging and THAT includes using a knife and scissors!!   Room 101!!!!

Barre Chords 🙄 my hands hurt 

There's a problem with this for a lot of guitarists who struggle with barre chords when first learning them,Mark.

It's often just a case  too much stiffness and tension that causes this or the playing position the guitar is in so a good tip is to try to relax your wrist and roll it down a little ,you may also find lowering your elbow slightly when your fretting the chords will help too.

Also,don't bother with any of those Gripmaster exercise tools that are supposedly designed for guitarists for developing strength in the fingers as they're not particularly anything special,you'll be much better off just picking up your instrument and playing it on a daily basis to be honest. 

It's always a bit of a slog for more or less everyone when starting out so just take your time and it will become easier and feel more natural to have your hands in those positions the more that you progress with your  playing.

Old arthritic fingers I have taken up the guitar a few years ago as therapy it helps and is great fun and I have learned to  adapt chords and shapes .

Just recently have bought a tenor guitar only four strings tuned DGBE that helps a lot also have a slim necked parlour guitar . 

Thanks for the tips though it all helps

The person who thought it would be a good idea to park the nose of their 4 x 4 two inches behind my car boot, despite there being dozens of other parking spaces.  It's a supermarket car park.  There's a good chance that people parked there may require access to the boot of their car.

Just seen 3 pricks who parked there cars in the middle of two parking spacers. . Wish I would have had a pen and paper,  they would have been left a lovely note on their windscreen. Absolute knobs. Room 101 definitely

Avoiding reality is a lifestyle I've been working on for years, anyone for Absinthe and mescalin?

Dave. I think this is the American woman hunter that's been trophy shooting in Scotland,  not sure

Steve 

I'm too arseholed to google it, but I hope she dies slowly and very painfully if she is hunting.  There'll come a day soon when someone will take her out, a car bomb, letter bomb or just a baseball bat in a dark alley, I'd like to get a hold of her pepper grinder, she'd wish she'd died quickly if I did.

Painful childhood memories of catching one's foreskin in a zip fly would answer that one.

I kid you not with this, when I was a kid the son of the landlord of the local pub got his foreskin well and truly caught in his zip, it must have been a slack day (no pun intended) when his dad phoned the fire brigade for advice they offered to help, no sooner had the fire engine parked up than us kids were there to see what had happened , no smoke, no hoses, first bloke out of the pub was asked what's happening for us to be told young Johns got his cock caught in his fly. needless to say it was a few days before said young John showed his face though to be fair once he showed us the scars our laughter soon turned to sympathy, I've been very careful ever since that day.

Dave.  When I was between women and living at my mate house.  They had a downstairs toilet and whenever we had been out on the lash my mate would stagger to the toilet and just sit down for a pee and fall asleep anyway one night he did this and unbeknown to me the toilet seat was cracked at the front so as my mate sat down the crack opened up,  he fell asleep  then his wife asked me to give her a lift to get him off the toilet,  as we lifted him up the crack closed on his Dick, man did he wake up. We're lifting him up saying higher, higher and he's screaming lower, lower. It was funny as fcuk,  still Laughing about it now 20 odd years later

In true Grinch spirit any record that begins with a preamble of the singer talking about anything in a very deep and presumably profound way. Get on with it for goodness sake I'm only listening for the music, why do I care what you think about pink tutus on polar bears  😉

There could be a very good reason that you haven't seen 'em for 40 years tho'.:g:
