Since some of us might not know what a pepperpot is, here is a link.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=o1H10e95RZk

Now, this is the thread where we talk about our experiences with such annoying middle-aged and/or old women.

Well, I know many old women who have a very different sense of humor than I do, BUT that's not my real pepperpot story. My story goes like so: I was in middle school, and in the fairly small town in which I lived, there were Community Concerts. meaning, the biggest theater in town would get various musical acts, one per month, to come and perform. These Community Concerts were very popular among the Pepperpots of our town.

One time, I swear, my dad and I were sitting in front of two of these women. One of them would say to the other something like, "Oh, I know this song" in a loud, obnoxious, pepperpot sort of voice, and the other one would respond "So do I" in the same sort of loud voice. "It was so-and-so's favorite song". "Oh yes, how's his wife?" 'I don't know, but I heard his daughter had the flu last Christmas" etc. I think you all get the picture. My dad shushed them a couple times and I believe, but am not absolutely sure, one of them actually said "Well, I never."

That's why I was laughing hysterically at this sketch (see above link), because it had actually happened to me before. So, has anyone else here had experiences with Pepperpots? If so, please share your stories. If not, feel free to make up a story. :)

the bus... typical pepperpot place... they kick you from your seat just to go 20 km and you travel 180km... is that fair? no
and they always make the bus full, they have other buses wich go to the neighbouring village every half an hour but there are only 2-3 busses a day wich go to Budapest from here, and there are always students who are left behind

Wow! I never realized that! It's totally true! That's their main hangout!

I also see them talking to cashiers at grocery stores. Never in theatres though...

Of course they still exist. To tell the truth about 45 % of the entire world population are pepperpots. Research hasn't told us anything about the quick development of these kind of people but somewhere down the line I think the reason for the quick growth in recent years (before 1969 only 10 % of the population were pepperpots) is because people are not wearing enough hats. I'll start wearing one to prevent a further takeover by them. Together we can defeat the pepperpots. So let's come together and kick the hell outta them. CHARGE!

What a topical problem today! Pepperpots are everywhere :twisted:
I see them every morning near my entrance. They`re sitting and arguing and discussing the weak points of the modern politics, economics and science! They shout at students and kick them from bus seats and even when they`re in good mood they try to insult you. That`s terror!
