Description

Modern life is full of annoyances. Indeed it sometimes seems as if life conspires to become more and more annoying every day, just to piss us off. It includes: Pop-up windows on the internet; Brian Sewell's voice; people who use finger signs to denote quotation marks; talking' birthday cards that never shut up; and mobile phone ringtones. Is there no end to this pain? Well Mitchell Symons has decided that enough is enough. He's mad as hell, and he's not going to take this any more! If you thought the Grumpy Old Men were grumpy, it's time to think again. Hilarious, entertaining and downright infuriating, this is essential reading for anyone out there who likes a good rant.show more
