I would sugggest as a word for more than stupid perhaps "Chongo."
Another excellent choice would be "Krinkle."

"The whole cart thing is totally krinkle."

Several times a year to me.
Now I make sure there is nothing in the cart before I take it.
They change baby's diaper out in the parking lot before they leave.
Toss it into the cart as they leave.
Store employees just leave it in there for the next shopper.

Henry, that's an insanitary health biohazard. If it happened here (which I seriously doubt) people would immediately inform the manager of the store, and the trolley would be withdrawn and disinfected thoroughly. How can people be so disgustingly dirty?? All the words for 'stupid' could be used simultaneously for a thing like that.

"Tosser" is another popular UK term for it, means exactly the same thing as as "wanker". And another is "prat". Still more, "stupid git". Then again, "pillock" seems to have a bit of a following as well. And there's also "wassock", a related term. Deeply suppressed anger and rancorous bitterness are, after all, essential features of the British culture nowadays, perhaps because there is a surveillance camera mounted on every street corner, the government does whatever it bloody well wants to, regardless of popular disapproval, and the cost of living is far too high, and all these nasty little words such as "tosser", "wanker", and "useless git" serve well to help exorcise (or is that "exercise"?) those pent-up feelings of impotent rage and frustration one may experience in difficult times.

Bit of a rum go, isn't it? Bit of a sticky wicket! We in "the colonies" can only sympathize with your plight...and watch sadly from afar.

Little Hawk, I'm very surprised at the tone of your more recent posts. I've always really enjoyed seeing 'Little Hawk' on the list of posters, and hurried to see what you've said, as you're always so considered, interesting, fair and informative. But now you appear to be rather acid and bitter, and I'm wondering why this drastic alteration? In reply to your points, I don't feel we in UK are tormented by 'deeply suppressed anger and rancorous bitterness'. Our country has its problems, as does any other, but I've always felt we are, on the contrary, a cheerful and tolerant set of folk. That song 'Always look on the bright side of life, de-dah, de-dah-de-dah-de-dah' just about sums us up. The resounding success of the recent Olympics ( as judged by all the visiting nations) were IMO a testament to our national character.

I have noticed a lot of rancorous hostility amongst some of the UK members on Mudcat, though, specially when they start fighting about domestic politics.

I wouldn't say it's typical of the majority of UK posters. Just a handful of them.

To bring this thread back on track.

Kelly bought a new electric stove. Great big oven with a light and a glass window in the door.

Now the whole purpose of a glass door is to see your cooking, so what do these moron designers do? They put TINTED GLASS in the door. So that everything you see in the oven is a dull grey. A great help when you are looking to see if those cookies are just starting to turn golden at the edges.

Someone told me that a new word going around is "dipshidiot", i.e. a dipshit & an idiot.

I'm anticipating that I'll be using this word a lot.

Also, re: discussions about shopping trolleys, I'm with gnu (16 Dec 12 - 06:46 PM)"Do these idiots drive cars on the roadways too!!?", only my question to myself is always, "Do you drive like you walk? Because I wouldn't want to be driving near you." Changing lanes without looking around, parking in the middle of the road and having a chat and getting annoyed at other people interrupting them by trying to move around them, bumping into people, i.e. displaying what I call the "Centre of the Universe Syndrome".

And Chongo, have you been tuning into my thoughts about impatient, ignorant and downright dangerous drivers?

(16 Dec 12 - 07:14 PM) "Them people, Bee-Dub, just can't believe that the world ain't arranged ONLY to suit their own exclusive convenience...cos they are Number 1 in the world as they see it. Life as they know it revolves around THEM. They wonder why you are botherin' them...why are you botherin' NUMERO UNO and causin' such an unfair inconvenience.."

I think I'm turning into a Grumpy Old Woman: young people these days, they don't show respect for others, blah blah blah, etc

Dipshidiots! All of them!

LOL Bert! Personally, I'd like to get my hands on the stupid twit who designed those silly key things that 'open' (we use the term loosely) corned beef tins. They inevitably break off, and no tin opener on this earth will fit the corners of a little corned beef tin. I've slit my fingers open so often trying to take over where the key left off. We have corned beef with blood sauce.

Eliza, you need to keep a pair of needle nose pliers in the kitchen for those corned beef cans. That's the only thing that can grab the broken end and continue opening the can.

And the person who designed that is probably long since gone to his just rewards; that's a pretty old design.

I can forgive designers of a century or more ago, they didn't know any better. But I'd like to get my hands on the twerp who designed my cell phone and put buttons on the outside, just where you pick the thing up. Every time I take my phone out of my pocket I bugger up the settings.

Maybe there's a special hell for bad designers where everything they touch goes wrong.

Bert, better still, I could apply the pliers to some part of the designer's anatomy. (And to cap it all, my husband announced the other day that he doesn't really like corned beef!) As for a special Designers Hell, the idea appeals. Designers of hooks-and-eyes on the back of bras, dishwasher doors you trip over, toilet paper rolls that are glued shut, sachets impossible to tear open, brooms whose brush drops off the handle, milk cartons you have to attack with a knife, wheelie bin liners whose perforated tear-lines are invisible, jam jar lids needing the World's Strongest Man to twist.... the list is endless. They could all end up in Hell, obliged to use their idiotic devices for all eternity.
