People who somehow angle every conversation into being bout their newborns, pregnancy or illness. Listening to them, other than bored of same topic, think I definitely didn't chat that much shit.
“I bought a new Mustang sports car”
“Yeah, great buy, could get a baby capsule in that back section for mah babeh, pity I’m handicapped with mah fat arse and can’t afford one due to mah diabetes “

People who use the words 'delicious' or 'yummy' to describe the food on their plate. Just fuck off. It's either nice or not nice/awful.

Ricky Gervais (and this isn't in the light of that ceremony he hosted the other day).

James Corden.

John Humphreys of Radio 4 'fame'.

Sky Sports boxing and football commentary - though I give them maximum respect for their cricket commentary. With boxing and footy it's got to the stage now where I have to find a stream from a different country (usually USA) to watch the fights/games.

I like James Corden, don’t get the hate, good guy comedian made good. A case of tall poppy syndrome, methinks.
I find Ricky Gervais hilarious, I think he is a comedic genius, his writing, nuances and timing are amazing.
I just had a delicious meal, not quite succulent (wasn’t Chinese), but delicious none the less.
I do agree on yummy, that’s not even a real word, adults should never use it in anything other than a conversation with a toddler or younger. My missus and her friend used to describe my cooking as “YUuuUummm!!!” until I told them to fuck up with that word and never use it again as I found it fucking insulting, probably cost me a threesome but I’ve had them before and had one since, I’d happily forego the threesome to never here “yum”, “yummy”, “yummo” or “yummbo”* again.

*The Yummbo burger from Hungry Jacks (Burger King) is welcome back into my life whenever it’s ready to come back...

Did you take up wearing a flat cap after Peaky Blinders or before?
I don’t even know what pesky blinders is, my old man has worn a flat cap since the 70’s and I’ve worn one on and off since I started fighting, the old man and Andy Capp are my inspirations. Lady one I had I wore everywhere and gave it to my good friend when he moved to Queensland five years ago, haven’t come across one I really liked since.

Peaky Blinders is like crack to underclass chavs.

Flat caps. This years Tap Out UFC T shirts for those who want to look really hard while in the street.
In Glasgow, where I'm from, the only people who wear them are old duffers.

My grandad always had one on. (Actually, the odd hipster barber type that charges £50 to wax someone's moustache, (not a euphemism), wear them now too) .

I have noticed they are really popular in the North of England though. Tattoos, undercuts, braces, undercuts, and flat caps.

I was somewhere in the north last year and there was a peaky blinders festival! Essentially loads of adults playing dress up.

No harm to them, I have a few weird hobbies myself, but they mainly looked like the kind of people who would laugh at/bully the cosplay nerds, when really they are doing the exact same thing. Weird.

Yep, loads of old folk still wear them down here. Problem is we've now got loads of dildos wearing them and waistcoats and generally looking embarrassing.

I don't really mind what people whear, but when you go all in on a fashion choice, then it's almost always going to be embarrassing and age badly.

I can imagine their kids in the future, "daddy, why did you spend all of your twenties dressed like a victorian greengrocer?".

They’re just practical ffs, you’re reading into it way to much. They’ve never been popular here but we’re great when it’s not summer, as they offer a little head insulation, a good amount of sunscreen and fold flat so are easily taken off and stored when inside. Wow, how to make a fucken mini series out of a handy, everyday item of clothing :lol:

People who wear braces to hold their trousers up. Buy a fucking belt.

Lads who wait for a specific barber.

Not something that annoys me really, more bemused by it. In fairness, i've benefited from this on several occasions as I effectively jump queue.
I do that. Can't have the new guy fuck up my hair line or make it look like I got a bowl cut.

Wait what!? I only like to go to the one, whenever I’ve had to change it’s been slightly traumatic, one builds a relationship then feels comfortable with the person they entrust into their personal space armed with ultra sharp scissors and a cut throat. Who are you, Forrest Gump?
Yeah I feel like my barber knows about my personal problems and hardships etc than most of my closest friends and family.

Also a shout out to my dealer. Always comes on time and picks up his calls and gives extra because I'm loyal. We even have a little chat in the car before he leaves.

When the fruit looks really good so you buy a kilo of it, then you get it home and it turns out it's shit. Floury apples are by far the worst offenders, but a similar effect sometimes occurs in peaches and that enrages the living shit out of me.
