Have your say

Is anyone else like me in thinking that hummus is an evil food?

I call it ‘The Devil’s Dip’ or ‘Satan’s Spread’.

If there’s a priority seat and I’m tired I will sit in it

If you ask me, the nachos you dip into it shouldn’t be triangle shaped.

They should be shaped like a satanic pentagram, because it really is the food of Beelzebub.

n I was in my local card shop yesterday and they had a special display of ‘Congratulations on your graduation’ cards and then, right next to these cards, they had all their ‘Congratulations on your new job’ cards.

They obviously assume that people buying cards for students that are graduating are also going to need to buy new job cards for them, because they’ll be getting jobs almost straight away. That’s what I call optimism.

n You know how when you get on buses, they always have signs by the seats nearest the door of the bus saying something like: ‘Please give up this seat to an elderly or infirm passenger’.

Well, I used to like those signs because they made it clear who you were supposed to give up your seat to. There was no argument. If someone was either old or infirm you gave up the seat to them.

But, the other day, I noticed on the bus that this sign seems to have been replaced by one that says ‘Priority Seats.’

Now, I have a problem because I don’t know what ‘priority seats’ is supposed to mean?

Because if I’m tired, I usually make it a priority of mine to sit down, so if there’s a priority seat and I’m tired I will sit in it.

The sign ‘priority seat’ is absolutely meaningless unless you make it clear who gets priority to sit in it.

Basically, please bring back the old signs saying who these seats are meant for. It’s going to save a lot of fights on buses, and we have enough of those already.
