People you shouldn't trust

Post by Gavin Chipper » Fri May 23, 2014 8:57 pm

E.g. People who like swimming
People who eat yoghurt
Men who wear really long pointy shoes that are much longer than their feet despite not being clowns but are actually in their work suits

Add your own. Nothing too serious like people who vote Tory/UKIP/BNP. That kind of goes without saying.

People with combovers. Luckily they're quite poor liars so it's easy to detect the dishonesty.

People who go to pubs but don't drink. Would you go to brothel to read a book? And I include designated drivers. In fact any group that has a designated driver. Just get a bloody taxi you cheap pricks.

People who don't know the difference between grammar and spelling. People who go on and on and on about their imagined National Lottery misfortunes.

Actually, while I might not want to discuss immigration or the reintroduction of national service with a lot of the people mentioned, I suspect they might actually be trustworthy. They lack the personality, imagination and intelligence to be otherwise. It's the person with none of these foibles who says "Trust me on this one" that you steer well clear of.

People who, because magicians don't want to reveal their secrets, have become successfully brainwashed into actively not wanting to know how tricks are done. I would consider that to be one of the best mind control tricks ever.

Obvious really, but any of those cnuts who insert themselves into a transaction as a third party purely to take an undeserved slice of the action, including but not limited to recruitment consultants, insurance brokers, estate agents, football agents


England goalkeepers

Men who wear pink

Men who wear runners with a suit for the commute

Any combination of the above

That's true, however religion's always going to be something people stand for, being that it's a belief in something higher than all of us. Of course there's no issue in being an atheist, however saying that someone's stupid and not to be trusted for believing in one's completely disrespectful and removing of somebody's rights. I'm not asking for an argument/debate/spam thread but being a Christian I'm prepared to stand up for what I believe in.

You spoke for lots of people in your earlier comment, much better to speak for yourself, and let everyone else speak up if they want to I reckon. And nobody said anything about people being stupid! (Unless I missed it)
