It's not possible. You do think you know everything, granted, but this is beyond reason.

Lies like this go into Room 101.
Used a lawyer once to buy a house, didn't use a real estate agency, did my own books when self employed so didn't need an accountant.

Dunno.... a certain cat was quoting forum rules at him the other day. Think she may have grassed him up.

Personally I think it was OTT banning in the first place.

Another thing for 101...

Snitches....

Agreed, he is a dickhead but a harmless dickhead.
If he actually meant any of the crap he spouts he wouldn't have any teeth left.

I can imagine him giggling to himself as he winds everyone up on here while being ordered around by his Indian boss.

Cerebral masturbation

Default Re: Room 101

Theres this guy in my building who will start pushing the 'close' buttons on the lift the moment the doors open. So lift stops at 2, he is already there going down and he will just start clicking away consistently at the close door button, despite the fact that it realy doesnt speed up the closing of the doors. I even pointed it out to him once that you are just destroying the moving parts in that button. He smiled and waggled his head and said 'no, no, its ok'. (btw this line : no, no, its ok is SO infuriating! Hey there is an axe sticking out of your head...no no, its ok! hey your house is on fire and your kids are inside....no no, its ok! hey watch out for that massive piece of turd falling from the sky right on top of your head.....where? there? ah...no no, its ok! ffs!!)
so now, when I see him already there in the lift and lets say he has already pressed the 'G' button, I will deliberately press as many buttons before G to slow the whole process down to a crawl. If he is going up, same. This has happened a few times now and I just say after pressing a button 'oh im sorry, I pressed the wrong button by accident'...then a sweet smile (sometimes I also waggle my head and repeat the international code language of no no, its ok at him which will automatically elicit a similar response from him of the same neck exercise movement, it is uncanny, it is like wolfs howling, one will start and then everyone will follow suite! try it sometimes, find a group and look at them square in the eye and just go for it, waggle and smile, and 90% will repeat what you are doing and that will start a chain reaction!)
ok im done, thanks I needed that

what about those dingbats who press the down button thinking they need the lift to come down, in order to go up.

calling you out on that one.

You are saying you get in a lift say on the 10th and press all the buttons from 9 to G just to irritate someone and just stand there.

Bollocks but I hope you got something out of typing it

Scamp... Bull shitters that think by expanding their story it is more believable.... Can we put them in?

Its like looking a dog in the face and tilting your head to one side. 9 times out of 10 then will copy you to retain eye contact.

When I've forgotten something I press the flr I want to go back too (33) and at the same time I'll pressed all the other flrs above (and as soon as I get out I press the down button), so that by the time I go to my apartment and collect whatever I had forgotten and come back, the lift is on it's way down again. Otherwise I end up waiting much longer for the lift.

I've seen delivery guys do it and I had to tell one, you don't need to do that...and I've seen labourers do it when I've gone to view apartments in buildings that haven't been completely finished/handed over.

No
He is on 4th and I'm on 2
So he usually has to go to B and I have to go to G so I also press 1 and then waggle and smile
Btw do you always read everything you read and take it literally? I bet you are fun at parties!

That's different.
You are talking about being alone in the lift. Anything goes then

he was saying he would press the buttons all the way down whilst someone else was in with them just to irritate them and stand there while it stopped at every floor.

don't think I know anyone that could do that, and I know some real ignorant fu**s
