Room 101-Coursework Assignment Edmund Rees-Thomas Room 101 is an imaginary room invented by George Orwell and was originally envisioned as a kind of torture chamber which contains your worst fears which are used as the instrument of your pain; it has now become a sort of warehouse into which your pet hates can be exiled. This has been due to the recent television program where celebrities are given the chance to banish their pet hates from the world. It took quite some time and desperate self deliberation for me to finalise my choice of five to banish. These final five items are things which have recently, as well as consistently, irritated me in my life time up to the point that I feel I could single handedly go on a crusade against these tiresome items. So, without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to announce my candidates for exile as; metal beds, the way the elderly think about youth, young children's annoying behaviour, computers when they crash and cheap cola. ...read more.


The thing that really annoys me about this is that they can't seem to remember what it was like for them to be teenagers, I'm sure it can't have been completely different "back in their day", as in the case of my grandmother who used to wear a duffel coat and tartan trousers, which were considered to be extreme to the point that people used to shout out of their windows at her. My third choice, young children's consistent whining and tendency towards violence is also something I must endure regularly, this time weekly, from my younger sister. I'm certain that older siblings can relate to this but what annoys me more is when this violence comes from young children I don't know or have only met once. The idea of a strange child trying to beat your leg into a bloody pulp is the most loathsome experience I have ever had the displeasure to experience. This mainly comes from friends' younger siblings who either adore or despise me and want to show their sometimes seemingly abnormal feelings, I must admit, I have wanted to batter them around the head just so they'll leave me alone. ...read more.


And lastly, the ultimate disgust I have ever experienced comes from my final choice, cheap cola. This "no frills" cola from most supermarkets implies that the frills are the taste that we get from more expensive colas including the fifty six pence bottles from the corner shops everywhere. This seems like a bit of minor discrimination against the poorer people of the world, e.g. students, who must endure the distasteful contents of these cheap colas. This seems especially strange considering that other flavours in the same price range and sometimes from the same brand taste fine. I have to hold my hands up to the triviality of this choice but it is something that irritates me immensely. I would have thought that anyone who has tasted these colas must agree but I do know a person who enjoys these disgusting drinks quite a lot and that just baffles me. In conclusion I beg that these five items are accepted and exiled from the world and would hope that people can relate to my frustration in these matters. ...read more.
