Cabbies Comments – another Jeremy Kyle encounter

I woke up listening to Jeremy Kyle and then my evening cab ride turned into a Jeremy Kyle episode – traumatic!

My cabbie started off my saying he prefers brunettes to blondes. I found out that was because his blonde wife left him for someone she found on Friends Reunited. Oh and his daughter dyed her fringe blonde, made him pay for it and it cost him £50 (quite random).

I had to stop filming as I was quite disturbed by the Friends Reunited story. Even more disturbing was that he went on to say he went to Thailand when his marriage ended and he had lots of naughtiness with Thai brunettes.  This is the first time I have ever had a cab driver that’s had more issues than me. 


Muesli Musings 8

Got up late this morning and had muesli watching Jeremy Kyle. Lasted five minutes before I turned it off otherwise I would have thrown the muesli at the idiots on the TV.

Now I can’t decide what’s worse – Britain’s Got Talent or Jeremy Kyle. Both formats manipulate stupid people and the people that go on it get nothing out of the show except maybe a nervous breakdown at the end.

So I had a bit more muesli and thought maybe Jeremy Kyle is worse because the people that are watching it have time on their hands on a weekday. That time would be better used for work / doing something life improving. It’s fine to chill watching BGT at the weekend after a hard week at work but it feels wrong to sit there watching weirdos in the morning.

If I were ITV controller, I’d scrap Jeremy and replace it with something that teaches something – a show about books or art or film. 

Surely TV can be entertaining without making fun out of people?

Tip of the day – don’t watch Jeremy Kyle while eating.
