This is a question Spoilt Brats

Mr Newton sighs, "ever known anyone so spoilt you would love to strangle? I lived with a Paris Hilton-a-like who complained about everything, stomped her feet and whinged till she got her way. There was a happy ending though: she had to drop out of uni due to becoming pregnant after a one night stand..."

Who's the spoiltest person you've met? Has karma come to bite them yet? Or did you in fact end up strangling them? Uncle B3ta (and the serious crimes squad) wants to know.

Mobile sodding phones
Why do some cretins think that you want to hear what shit music they listen to on their phone? It escapes me, in all honesty. If it plays music, use the headphones - I neither want nor care to hear whatever you think passes for aural fun, ta.

Such it was that I found myself on a Glasgow tube, opposite one such runt. Particularly shitty day, exhausted and in no mood for anyone's pish. This pocket-based Jean Michel Jarre then proceeds to play some mind-numbingly crass tune on his phone, just for the entire carriages listening pleasure. Roughly 30 seconds pass before I lose the plot, and lean forwards, and in a voice like something from Amityville Horror, growl "Are you going to turn that off, or am I going to take it off you and stick it up your arse?"

The look on his face was priceless and worth every second. Stupid little twat. Fall under a train you execrable turd.

(I am very easy going. Stupidity or a lack of manners however just lights my fuse).

serves him right.
although some Guardian-reading liberal types could misinterpret it as you threatening to sexually assault a child for having a mobile phone.

So is there
another way to interpret it?

Was there only the one of them? They're not so brave when they're in groups small enough that they can count them with fingers and toes.

New pet hate this
had to experience the latest trip-hardcore-speed-garage bollocks coming out of some chav-ette's mobile phone outside of Tescos this morning... shudder!

Why would you get up on a Sunday morning, go sit outside Tesco's and play music out of your mobile???

(I was there to get carrots for Sunday lunch btw)

Music that sounds like Pinky and Perky singing to 180BPM drumming, I avoid the bus if at all possible due to this tinny crap from the childrens phones causing an annoyance they reckon they will get away with, it's worse than the usual 'hello, I'm on the bus, what's for dinner' junk 'cos they at least have the decency to run out of steam eventually.

good effort!
I've heard a more subtle approach on the top of the 237 by a guy who introduced himself to the aural offender as a sound engineer and proceeded to tell him the ins and outs of why blaring music out of a shitty mobile phone sounds so shite.

evidence suggests it was too subtle, though.
1, said twat didn't turn it down.
2, sound engineer alighted bus sans knife in skull.

At moments like that ...
I wish I were a 300lb Samoan.

a 300lb Salmon... would have the same impact I would imagine.

Somewhere in my vast store of junk...
... I have a compact little hunting horn. Fsck knows why, I've never been one for hunting, but there you are. It's folded round like a bugle, and is - if I recall correctly, I haven't seen it for a while - about the same size as the pocket on the front of my laptop bag.

It's also damn loud.

Maybe I should just pick up an el-cheapo chinese knockoff trumpet.

Look out for the cheap, plastic (incredibly loud) Spanish 'Bocin Gol' trumpets, they make cold callers go away, tourists jump into the road and grown men cry. Powered by only human breath but with a clever mylar diaphragm they turn up cheap or free at outdoor sporting events and the like, well worth while.
