Title: Things that piss you off!
Post by: bobAlike on June 18, 2011, 01:58:30 PM
It seems all we hear nowadays is how screwed the UK economy is and how the government have got no spare money
and in times of austerity how we must make cuts and look after what we have got...

...so why is then that every other Saturday a team of at least a dozen workmen and at
least 6 council vehicles (flat bed trucks, pick ups and vans etc.) are engaged in cutting the grass and trimming the
hedges on our local traffic islands.

Now I like to see a well presented roundabout as much as the next person but does it really need to be done on
a Saturday when the likelyhood is that these workmen are probably on double and triple time?

Surely the money could be put to better use.

I dont know why but this really pisses me off.

council workers at that level getting overtime i would be very surprised, more likely they have 5 day working week that includes Saturdays.

Good post!

Always pisses me off when I see some ridic expensive (piece of shit looking) modern art has been installed somewhere in town.

Other things that annoy me:

- 65% + of poker players esp those who bang the table/curse when they see a flop they'd have hit hard but aren't in the pot.

- pigeons.

- aggressive drunks. (Fun drunks are awesome).

- kinboshi.

The Government giving everyone the day off work for the recent Royal wedding.

"We've decided to make today a bank holiday"

Well thank you very much!! It doesn't cost the government a penny yet they get the credit for being so generous!!

It's the struggling businesses who still have to pay the staff for doing nothing whilst losing a days productivity in to the bargain.

If you say that there's 20,000,000 workers in the UK on an average £100 per day that's 2 billion quid in wages with zero output.

Great way to bolster a struggling economy.

Fortunately for the Government most people in the UK are too stupid to realise what a fuck up that day off was for the economy as their brains can't think further ahead than next week's family credit cheque.

BMW service who tell you your car needs 4 new tyres because 3 have 'unrepairable' punctures.

Take them to a decent tyre place who repairs them all for £6 a piece.

Ring BMW service to ask wtf they were on about who say:

"Our policy is to never repair a tyre".

So there's no such thing as a reqairable tyre then you big thieving fucknose!!!

Run Flat Tyres. Extra Strength in the walls of the tyres enable the car to drive even with 0 psi in  4 tyres.

Until the manufactures tell us it's fine to repair tyres BMW will only replace.

Its all about safety but I can imagine there are a few Nob Heads out there who object to this.

I will never buy another BMW out of warranty (or at least not with the intention of using  a main dealer).

Even in warranty they try to bum fk you

BMW design cars to uneven wear tyres (at £250 a corner) and suggest that its due to "sports suspension" and that "there is nothing we can do but make you spend another £250 a corner despite that fact you did that 6 months and 8000 miiles ago sir" "shall we run that 1k worth of rubber through for you sir?"

I have 2 ways of dealing with these people.
 1. keep jamming the * and # buttons until the phone system goes into meltdown and you get through to an operator (usually fairly quickly)
or 2. choose the sales option no matter what your query and make them transfer you pretty sure these companies value there new sales over the existing customers so these options are usually 1 on the list and are answered the quickest.

Haha, will give em  a go, but I'll tell you whats even worse is when they say instead of "dial 1 if you want blah blah" they get you to speak to some machine"say yes if you have a query about blah blah". I'm rambling now , I hope I'm making sense.

Anything about public information and the ott way the government try to get the message across to us seemingly dumb as fuck citizens

1. The pictures of various devastating illnesses on cigarette packets. Disgusting blackened lungs and that dude with the weird moustache and the big lump on this throat. The crazy messages in bold letters like SMOKE ONE AND YOU MOTHER DIES. It really stresses me out and forces me to have a ciggie just to calm down.

2. That advert about cutting your speed with the creepy little dead girl appearing under the desk, in the street, always getting in the guy's face and whispering. Really creeps me out and clearly torments the poor driver terribly. I imagine he could go on to suffer some kind of mental illness with her mithering him all the while.

3. The advert about not hitting bikers. Now you see him. Now you don't. Now you see him. Now you don't. Like every typical biker the fecker is clearly weaving all over the road and deserves to be mowed down like the bastard he is.

In fact anybody who works in the public sector.

Great thread.

Massive +1 to Russell Brand, Unresponsive remotes and people taking ages when queuing.

Since i have started working at a new company one particular being has made me realise a shit load of things that piss me off, all due to her:

People who loudly announce spoilers to TV progs/Films without any prior warning.
People who say " i don't do ...." insert things such as walking, trains, planes, boats, foreign countries, London.
People who start sentences with Father this or Mother that.
People who talk about themselves in the 3rd person.
People who refuse to watch films because they are 'too mainstream'

Can't remember what else this bitch does that annoys me, no doubt i will have a load more by Monday lunch time.

The Government giving everyone the day off work for the recent Royal wedding.

"We've decided to make today a bank holiday"

Well thank you very much!! It doesn't cost the government a penny yet they get the credit for being so generous!!

It's the struggling businesses who still have to pay the staff for doing nothing whilst losing a days productivity in to the bargain.

If you say that there's 20,000,000 workers in the UK on an average £100 per day that's 2 billion quid in wages with zero output.

Great way to bolster a struggling economy.

Fortunately for the Government most people in the UK are too stupid to realise what a fuck up that day off was for the economy as their brains can't think further ahead than next week's family credit cheque.

Err, it wasn't an official bank holiday, so if a business wanted you to work that day, you did.

The only people who should be blamed for letting staff have the day off are the management teams who decided to let it happen.

It was an official Bank Holiday - just like next year's will be for the Diamond Jubilee

But business's don't have to let people have any Bank Holiday's off - they'd probably have some kind of backlash from the employees if they didn't though, which might end up costing them more over the long term.

People who don't say 'thank you' when you say 'bless you'.


People who say 'bless you' when someone sneezes.

If you don't say 'Bless You' the person sneezing loses a piece of their soul to the Devil.

Everyone knows that.

Having to put petrol in the car pisses me off. It's not the paying, it's having to take time out just to go to the petrol station.  If I had staff, this would be a job they'd have to do.

WHY ? WHY do that, it's painful to look at.


And the ones who have their noses pierced... because they don't look enough like pigs.

LOL I hate any sort of piercings or tattoo's...... :-X

Blokes <23 are the ones who crash/drive badly

Obviously I know you mean that they should charge people more after they've proven it with a claim; but it's too late by then. If the insurance companys  didn't charge young male drivers so much - they'd go out of business.

yer they could charge that amount at the begginning of the year, and then give money back if you dont crash/keep the money if you do crash

something like that

I was really fucking angry today, get this one.............

Ordered a before 9am delivery as normal, woke up at 7.30am and was ready to receive by 7.45am and listening out for them. I live behind a secure gate that needs a code to get through, I passed on the gate code as I always do. 9.30am nothing..........so I called them up, 'there was an attempted delivery at 8.04am sir' eh, WTF? Is the guy a fucking ninja or something? I can usually hear the van. Turns out he wasn't passed on the gate code, ok no problem we can work around that I thought, we all make mistakes.

I was working in a hotel around the corner from where I live today, it is literally 500 yards from my house, I mean literally. So I asked can you drop at the hotel as I need to go there now? Got back to me 30 mins later 'sorry sir we cannot do that its in a different postal area from your house, a different driver covers that delivery area', me 'WTF Its literally 500 yards from my house?', him 'sorry standard SOP'. I blew my fucking top at this point.

Got called back an hour from some supervisor who managed to sort it but I didn't get the stuff until 2pm. I've shorted this story as I can't be arsed writing it it full but there were a few other phone calls I had to make to get it to happen.

The thing about the post codes is what frustrates me most. Considering a lot of these guys have paid good money to get their vans plastered with the City Link logo, I never ceased to be amazed at their lack of willingness to actually go out and do their job and deliver parcels. I personally work nights and am in involved in the route planning for the drivers, so I'll be the twunt who has to deal with the sort of issue you had all day long and it never ceases to get me worked up.

Problem is we have a system in which the majority of the drives are self-employed. They buy the rights to a post-code (e.g. SS1-SS7) and as a result will only deliver in that area. Therefore in your case it's likely that the postcode became SS8 (for example) when your house is in SS7 and as a result the driver can refuse to do the delivery as he is only meant to do SS1 to SS7.

I could go on and on about that company, but there's no point in me getting worked up. All I know is if it carries on at this rate Rentokil will have had enough before long and we'll all be without a job.

Just out of interest, how often do the parcels turn up looking like a pile of shit?


Title: Re: Things that piss you off!
Post by: Bongo on July 01, 2011, 12:19:27 AM
Is it anything to do with their area not being the other postcode (SS8 in your example) and the terms of their contract state they can't deliver there? You might be annoyed if you paid to be the SS8 driver and someone else delivered there.

Had a similar thing with Dominoes many years ago - they refused to deliver to where we were because it was outside their franchise area (by about 500 yards) - despite their being no other dominoes for miles around.

It's not that really. When you buy a postcode you're effectively buying the rights to deliver there and to be the only who is able to do so (obviously). However you're doing that for no other reason than to ensure you have work as it means no-one else can deliver there.

That said, if you spoke to the driver who owned the rights to SS8 he's hardly going to throw a fit when he founds out the reasoning for another driver delivering in his postcode - especially as it saves him another delivery the next day.

In the case mond described, it simply sounds like the driver couldn't be arsed to actually go and do his job and deliver the parcel as it meant traveling a far distance so managed to hide behind the postcode change.

Most drivers whinge, whine and act like teenage girls when they're given quite a number of drops so they'll do their up most to lose a few deliveries if they can.

Then again my bias always shines through as I dislike most drivers immensely. I can't understand why they chose to drive then spend all day and night doing their absolute best to avoid doing the job at hand. Fuck 'em.

City Link are probably the worst for this to be honest.  The missus had a lot of photographs delivered from the framers, and I went to the door to take the delivery.  He opened the side-door of the van and the parcels in the back were strewn everywhere.  I made sure I signed as 'unseen', and sure enough when we checked the pictures, two had the glass broken , despite them being wrapped VERY carefully by the framers.

We called the framers and they said it had happened before, and we told them about the state of the stuff in the van.  They replaced the frames at their cost (obviously), and we suggested they use a different courier next time.  They replied "but they're far cheaper than anyone else."  ;dingdell;

Not had that problem actually. I normally get about 3 or 4 boxes which are piled in one corner of the van so they don't get banged around in the back of it.

Teachers that throw a hissy fit if you have the kids out of school a day or two early, nigh on threaten to call the social - and then take 'Teacher Training Days' and strike action whenever the feel like it.

On this note, Unions and Unions bossed who seem to think this is still the 70's.

People who strike because the government are trying to cut the massive debt that the country has. They all say that something should be done about the debt but they don't want to pay for it by having anything they use cut. How do they think the government works? Where do they think the government gets it's money from?

The above obviously relates to Greece as people that stupid can't possibly be British...or teach.

WD on photographing a pigeon's soul.

The detail is amazing.  It does look like its the pigeon's soul left behind.  Hope it can fly better in the afterlife than it could in this one...

Scared the hell out of me when it hit the window, it must have been flying pretty rapidly.  Didn't even need to find the deceased pigeon on the back lawn to know it was dead, or to know it was a pigeon!

Whining public sector workers who think they should get a better deal on pensions/benefits than those of us the private sector.

Get into the real world.

This reminds me of the joke....

A banker, a private sector worker and a public sector worker were in a focus group on pensions. When they stopped for tea the banker grabbed 11 out of 12 biscuits, turned to the private sector worker and said, 'Look out mate - that civil servant is trying to steal your biscuit!!

If the public sector ever had to face commercial reality it would implode!

Max Hyde, NUT national executive member, said the public sector was being punished by the actions of reckless bankers among others. “The Lord Hutton report on pension reform shows clearly there is no pensions crisis. The audit office also says there’s no problems and a parliamentary select committee say there’s no problem so my question to the Government is, ‘what is the problem?’”

REALLY??????

Also fed up with people who say "It wasn't us that caused the crisis, why should we have to pay for it?"


All in all just fed up with coffee-table socialists who only stand up for themselves and don't give a crap about the country as a whole.

The current teachers’ pension scheme means teachers pay six-and-a-half per cent of their monthly salary into a pension pot, while the Government pays 13-and-a-half per cent.

And they think this is sustainable with everyone getting older and living longer?
The cost of paying for teachers' pensions is forecast to rise from around £5bn in 2005 to almost £10bn by 2015 (Source The Guardian 14-06-11)

And considering the, alledged, poor state of British education I think quite a few teachers simply don't deserve a deal as good as they are getting now.

If you want to be specific then regarding teachers, if you take their actual hourly pay then it is close to min wage, one of the main reasons you work for the public sector is to get these perks to offset the shit pay.  If you pay penuts, you get monkeys. Why would anyone spend 50hrs a week teaching and marking for 25k a year and no perks? If you continue trimming these perks and not improving their basic pay then you will only attract idiot teachers and all the best will leave the proffession or teach at private schools. I taught at a school/college, I doubled my wage for a piss easy IT job. Teaching just aint worth the hassle unless you knew it would be worth it for the good pensions/holidays etc...

Its easy whine about people making a fuss for their rights but making general sweeping statements about public sector workers is as tilting as boshi going on about God. Whine about whiners?

lolz really?

even at the bare minimum starting wage outside of london (£21.6k I think) that would mean they'd have to average 70 hours a week for 52 weeks a year to be on min wage

considering they work nowhere near that many hours, nowhere near that many weeks and most earn a lot more I reckon you could be a touch wrong there

Don’t know what teacher pay in London is but in Leeds 4-5 years ago most were on 20-30k. Head teacher, head of years etc I guess were on 40k+ Put into the mix college teachers are on a lot less. It’s good that those that teaches the most vulnerable and in need is valued much less in colleges.

http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6000186

TEACHERS’ PAY FROM SEPTEMBER 2010
 Scale point   Annual salary England and Wales excluding  London
(band D)   Annual salary inner London area
(band A)   Annual salary outer London area
(band B)   Annual salary Fringe area

      D £              A £           B£              C£
1   21,588   27,000   25,117   22,626
2   23,295   28,408   26,674   24,331
3   25,168   29,889   28,325   26,203
4   27,104   31,446   30,080   28,146
5   29,240   33,865   32,630   30,278
6   31,552   36,387   35,116   32,588

The facts say outside London most are on 20-30k like I said. if normal teachers are on 45-50k then I will work there tomorrow then!

I worked on average 58 hrs a week (marking marking marking) and this was for 44 weeks a year, for 25k which gave me under £10 an hour. Add to this the shit you have to do now, the responsibilities and  looking after the kids, not being able to actually discipline anyone its not worth it.

A lot of the decent teachers I knew left so they could A) have a life B) earn some decent money C) have a less stressful job.

The key thing for teaching is the pension is crucial because frankly you will find it hard to teach past your mid 50's, especially if it’s a high school. The decent pension means most will retire mid 50s and be able to lead a decent lifestyle. Now we can argue the pedantics of how good or bad their pension is and if it is too high but that’s not the point. The issue is they are royally pissed off because the terms and conditions of their pensions they signed up for and worked all their life’s for has been changed coz the governments can’t run the country and skinto. I know I would be angry in any job if halfway through I got shit on.

I know its flavour of the month to bash collective bargaining for the work force, but if done correctly and avoiding strikes (which i am opposed to) it is a great thing and protects the worst paid, most vulnerable in society. We have to be really carful in this country not to follow how some states (Wisconsin) or you will end up no one with any brains wanting to work in the public sector and especially in those jobs that look after, teach and are key to the future.

Well yes they are all head of depts etc and have been in the game 15 years or so. What do you expect? £35k+ after just a few short years? Most in the private sector don't get that and have none of your excessive benefits, and yes many work the hours you do so don't think your special............

The pensions take the piss and need sorting out now, too good for way too long..........

The show me the rates for people with longer service who have significant responsibility?

Also you need to pro rata it up for the excessive holiday they get to make it fair to compare to private sector pay.

With starting salaries matching what you'd receive in many other professions, your experience and performance can see you achieve rapid progression, and enjoy the financial rewards to match.

The Office for National Statistics said public sector workers enjoyed average rises of up to 3% to £554 a week in 2010. This is up from £538 in 2009 and brings the average median gross annual salary for public sector employees to £28,808

To say you need a better pension deal because working after 50 is tough is just not on, IMO. I find it tough working now, it's not going to be an easier when I'm over 50 either. People have to accept that we will live longer, on average, and the pension will therefore have to last longer. It will be more expensive and it will now be too expensive to keep the current pension deals in place.

This is not just about teachers BTW this goes for all public sector workers.

I dont expect anything, i told you the facts and you told me a much higher figure which is not backed up from the offical government stats. I dont expect them to get huge wages, I expect them to get the pension they signed up for a worked for and not be mocked for complaining like they somehow are bitching over nothing.

The show me the rates for people with longer service who have significant responsibility? Also if you need to pro rata it up for the excessive holiday they get to make it fair to the private sector.

I gave you the average wages for normal teachers, is this not enough? you want to know the top 10% after 20 years service to make your point they aint been screwed over pensions valid?

I was just making the point that those salaries are fine for what they do, they all need to something to work for and aspire to to earn extra money. There is opportunity to earn extra if the take on more responsibility, my friends do but they go out of their way to do it.

For what they do I think what they get is fair, but their pensions are totally excessive as with many public sector workers.

But the point is not if their pension is fair or not. Its weather you can change the terms and conditions off anyone’s pension after they worked under the assumption it would be a certain level when they retire. Public, private, or whoever I would deem this a lame move on behalf of the employer if it was done to me.

Public, private, or whoever I would deem this a lame move on behalf of the employer if it was done to me.



But that should be the point.

It might be a lame move on behalf of the employer but since WE are the employers and are paying for it whilst we ourselves have to tighten our belts and deal with our pensions being cut, I don't see why we (the Govt) shouldn't take a hard look at public sector pensions as well.

We've already established that your pay isn't as bad as public sector workers like to claim it is, so why would we pay for an outrageous and unaffordable pension scheme?

I would agree that to do this to people that have been working for 20-30 years is not right and they should be protected...no problem with that at all. But to see people in their 20s and 30s in the streets protesting over this shit really pisses me off. Their pensions have to be cut now.

BTW, before this goes all cuckoo and "look at how sorry someone who has been working for 30 years is"; Lord Hutton has CLEARLY stated that

7.34 The Commission’s expectation is that existing members who are currently in their
50s should, by and large, experience fairly limited change to the benefit which they would
otherwise have expected to accrue by the time they reach their current scheme NPA. This
would particularly be the case if the final salary link is protected for past service, as the
Commission recommends. This limitation of impact will also extend to people below age
50, proportionate to the length of time before they reach their NPA. Therefore special
protections for members over a certain age should not be necessary. Age discrimination
legislation also means that it is not possible in practice to provide protection from change for
members who are already above a certain age.
7.35 Those employees who intend to take their pension in the next few years could do so
before the new terms are introduced. An employee now aged around 50 with many years
of service in a scheme with an NPA of 60 would retain the link to his or her final salary for
past service, while accruals from about the age of 55 would be under the new terms with a
higher NPA. Although the exact impact of this will depend on individual circumstances and
the scheme parameters, it is likely that most people currently in their early 50s will have a
slightly lower pension if they choose to retire at their current pension age. Individuals could
choose either to retire at the age of 60 with a slightly reduced pension, or work for a little
longer in order to obtain the same pension income as that which would previously have been
payable at 60."

On page 155

http://cdn.hm-treasury.gov.uk/hutton_final_100311.pdf

So, if the govt indeed goes with Lord hutton's recommendations (and they have stated that they broadly will) WTF is this crazy argument about people close to retirement being screwed???

Yes pretty much, shit hours but 12 weeks holiday.
The reality to this old chesnut it.

Clare Road, Halifax media reports state that teachers get 12 weeks holiday a year. Do we? There are 365 days in a year. There are 52 weeks in a year, which means there are 104 Saturdays and Sundays. So, from 365 subtract 104; that means there are 261 working days.
Teachers are committed to 195 days from the 261; thus teachers are out of school for 66 days (13 working weeks and one day).
But everyone is entitled to holiday days. If you take the average holidays to be 25 days then subtract 25 days from 66; that leaves 41 days that teachers have "extra" to those not in teaching.
There are eight bank holidays; 41 minus eight leaves 33 days that teachers have "extra".

Most jobs involve a 40-hour week, but data has shown that teachers work more than 50 hours a week. This means that teachers work 10 hours more per week that the norm, equivalent to two hours per teaching day, without pay.

195 days worked at two hours extra per day means 390 hours extra per year; 390 hours divided by eight hours (an eight-hour day equals a 40-hour week) equals 48.75 extra days.

This means that, although teachers appear to "gain" 33 days more than others, their working schedule equates to an extra 48 days, leaving teachers 15 days worse off!

BTW, just to clarify again...this is not just a teacher's pension.

25k is pretty much the average for the point of entry and for the first 2-3 years..not the bottom of the scales as thats 22k. Earning £10 an hour imo is not something a proff. qualified person (degree, PGCE etc) should be aiming for. Hence why I left teaching.

The 15 days less was a fun post from a trade unions article, I did have a chuckle myself :)

In the strike there was a photo of a teacher with a banner that had a spelling mistake on it - technically I suppose that part should be in the things that make you happy thread :)

So I'll add - teachers complaining they start on a low pay when it's over the median pay for the country - it's slightly less than the average graduate salary (£25k) - but I'm fairly sure that the people I've seen complaining about it weren't thinking about that, they just genuinely considered it as low pay.

People who drive down a 60mph road at 40mph (probably because they have no idea what the limit is, and then when they reach a village with a 30mph limit they continue to go at 40mph.

Oh and the same drivers usually brake at every slight bend in the road, even when there is no need as the bend is so slight and they are going so bloody slowly to start with!

The highway code states that drivers should make good progress, and on a clear road that is national speed limit the only reason they are going at that speed is that they are not aware of what the speed limit is. Then when they enter a section of road where there are pedestrians and the speed limit reflects that, they continue to disregard the road and conditions.

Had screaming baby in car needing feed and the cop sure was sympathetic.

A trip to the bakers.  And 4 strikes in quick succession.  I only wanted a bacon sarnie ffs.

1. Litter.  4 arseholes in their Corsa wind down the window and drop the leftover KFC on the kerbside.

2. People's complete indifference to the plight of others.  A woman struggling with 3 toddlers and shopping in a shop doorway. ONE toddler down.  Two items of shopping down.  THREE people step over all of the above, tutting as they go.

3.  Dunce in the bakers.  Been there over a month, I am literally not kidding when I say he hasn't yet grasped the difference between a large brown sandwich loaf and a small white farmhouse.

4.  People that can't wait for you to drive past when you are the only car on the road.  If you can't wait those 3 seconds, please at least put your foot down when you pull out on me.  Instead, the tit today managed 5 mph, then stopped at a traffic island (blocking) and tried to engage a passer by in conversation - I really appreciated it.

5.  People that have to resort to lists to remember all the things they want to moan about.

Top hats are bad as well. They started out as part of the uniform of posties and coppers, were then bumped up to "respectable" and are now for pillocks and Royal Ascot with its ridiculous dress code.

But people don't harp on about them as much as they do about kilts. You hardly ever hear someone say "Men look soo sexy in a top hat". But you hear "I think a kilt looks sexy on a man" a lot when the subject is discussed (Ussually by some horrible woman who thinks a Sex and the City life-style should be life's ambition). Nothing looks sexy on an overweight, plebbish and drunken Scot. (Which accounts for 99% of all Scots at weddings).


Another thing I hate;

Weddings. .....
Birthdays.....
Christmas and other idiotic holidays that I "have to" celebrate.

Intelligent tabloid journalists and intelligent members of fringe political parties who champion a certain type of populist policy. The sort of policy that they know has been tried at various times throughout history and is invariably followed by cataclysmic failure, a policy that while well intentioned, is known to have unintended and unavoidable negative consequences.

It pisses me off because they know themselves it's a really bad idea, and if they were in charge would not put it into practice. They know they're not going to be in charge... ever. They are only interested in having as many people as possible listen to the sound of their voice while they're taking these cheap shots. They know they sound like they're speaking sense and enjoy their moment to bask in the approval of the masses. They do so safe in the knowledge that the arguments against them, while sound and complete, are too nuanced and technical to form an adequate oppostion in the heat of the moment.

The idiot tabloid journalists and idiot members of fringe political parties who do the same thing - I don't mind them so much.

If they do that then it's not a smooth transition from hand to pocket, you have to arse about with shopping in 1 hand and money/receipt in the other. I like to keep notes in 1 pocket and change in the other.

Cards have the additional problem that some places have a system set up which makes it slower to pay by card, and obviously people themselves can take an age using a card (although they're probably the exact same people who faff about for change when they're paying cash)

but basically you're not pissed off by people paying by card - you're pissed off by people being slow.

Same for fuel.  People who put £10 worth of petrol in, spend ages trying to work out the pump (as they are all so different), then have to work out how the open the petrol cap, then put the blue gloves on (WTF is that all about?), then fill it slowly to the £10 level, then spend ages taking off the gloves, putting the cap back, then go in to pay (probably split between a card with a £5 limit and cash), then they come back out and sit in their car for ages examining their receipt, applying their make-up (girls as well), picking their nose, adjusting their seat (yeah, because it's moved loads since you sat in it last), checking the receipt again, putting on their seat-belt, checking their mirror, pulling out slowly, stopping so they can change the radio station or change the CD to the 'Best of Steps', put their lights on, pull out slowly a bit further, stop to let three people walk in front, let two other cars pull out, then eventually drive off.

Petrol stations come supermarkets.

Yes they are convenient but I believe they are the downfall of this country. When petrol stations just sold fuel and other motoring related items we all did our shopping at the local shops and the money we spent stayed local. These local shops were the lifeblood of the local community. Along come petrol stations trying to expand their wares and the next thing you know is that Bolt has been banned, Blatch has grimmed the world, the bankers have gambled (and lost) our money, 2 Gulf wars, 9/11, 7/7. Joking aside you can now get all you need to survive from a petrol station from food and drink to medication and news papers and all this means that the large super market chains play such an integral part of our lives that we lost what it really means to be a community.

People who take £10 out of a cash machine. FFS. Take more out. That way you won't have to use the thing every 5 minutes.

I did this the other day, only had £10, sorry.

People who take more than 20 seconds to use a cashpoint.

WTF are you doing? Stick the card in, put in your number, Cash, £40, done.

Same for fuel.  People who put £10 worth of petrol in, spend ages trying to work out the pump (as they are all so different), then have to work out how the open the petrol cap, then put the blue gloves on (WTF is that all about?), then fill it slowly to the £10 level, then spend ages taking off the gloves, putting the cap back, then go in to pay (probably split between a card with a £5 limit and cash), then they come back out and sit in their car for ages examining their receipt, applying their make-up (girls as well), picking their nose, adjusting their seat (yeah, because it's moved loads since you sat in it last), checking the receipt again, putting on their seat-belt, checking their mirror, pulling out slowly, stopping so they can change the radio station or change the CD to the 'Best of Steps', put their lights on, pull out slowly a bit further, stop to let three people walk in front, let two other cars pull out, then eventually drive off.



Poor people

Wanting to post in this thread but can't find it for half an hour coz the search engine shows you every other thread when you type in "things that pss you off"

Having 50 show new replies to your post and not one is on the things that piss you off thread.

Not thinking to look at bobalikes last Post of this person .

The original thing that pisses me off is mates who add me to bloody groups on Facebook and then everytime someone posts something I get a bloody email to my eye phone and it vibrates. Latest culprit Pete Wigglesworth and bloody team blue blood. Ffs 35 posts in ten minutes at2 am last night.

I was laid next to the mrs in bed and could nOt find the bloody phone but could hear it buzzing. I noticed she was a wake so said "sorry darling about this" . she just had a big smile on her face Said "thank you darling" gave me my phone back from between her legs rolled over and started snoring

Banks and bank charges and their refusal to do anything sensible about them. Being overdrawn for 4 days by 56p because of a mistake THEY made has cost me 62 quid. Fucking jokers.

I'm going to go fucking ballistic tomorrow when I go down to the bank. I might do the whole world a favour and just kill them all.

Taking a poo poo in toilets outside of your own home

1. Running into a cubicle and often greeted by slash all over the seat and chain not flushed. Why do guys do this?

2. Running into single unisex cubicle at petrol station yesterday to be greeted by an old lady taking a dump screaming for me to get out. Use the lock pls.

3. Hearing loud groans and splashes from next door

4. Suddenly realising there's only one sheet of toilet roll sandpaper or none at all

5. Running into only available cubicle and almost getting knocked off your feet by the stench

Haven't been home in 4 days so my own toilet, a newspaper, full roll of velvet, and complete solitude was abs heaven today.

Unless I am desperate to have that meeting I would walk out if anyone is more than 10 minutes late. Have done this at interviews as well..I might be after a job but that doesn't mean you can have me sitting there for 20-30 minutes.

No. Someone being late, without letting you know or having a very good reason, means they don't have any respect for you or your time. When people are interviewing someone for a job and run 30-40 minutes late it can mean 1 of 2 things;

1; They are shit at their job. They clearly don't know how to manage their time effectively and need a PA. As I am not applying for PA jobs, I'm not interested.

2; They think they hold all the power and are making you wait on purpose. They are likely to do this the entire time you work for the company (As I'm assuming they will outrank you for quite a while)

If a mate of mine is running late I don't have a massive issue with it (as you know your mates and some of them are just shit at keeping time..and I don't have any mates :) ). For an official appointment I have no time for people who show up late without an extremely good reason. Having their lunch is definitely not a good enough reason to waste my time.

Also, any cup of tea you're going to be offered whilst waiting for an appointment/interview is going to be shit. The last thing I want to do is sit there for 20-30 minutes with a shitty cup of tea.

Just uninstalled Chrome from a PC, and when it completed it open up IE for some post-uninstall questionnaire or something (I closed it quickly so didn't actually read it).  You'd expect Google/Chrome people to know better and open up my default browser (which Chrome never was because of it's massive security flaws) instead of IE.

All this fashion talk at the races these days really pisses me off.   If I wanted to watch ponces wear clothes, I'd watch some wierd Sky channel or something, there's a reason I tune in to Channel 4 Racing, there's a clue in the program name.

Then for some reason I can't work out the guy still stands there staring at the machine waiting for something else to happen. I don't know what else is supposed to happen.

Staff in the local Spar convenience store.

There are 2 members of staff (villains) at the tills 1 customer and myself waiting to be served. Villain number 2 pisses off ignoring me and villain number 1 proceeds slowly talking and serving.

So f*cking slow it's driving me nuts. Meanwhile 2 more customers are waiting behind me and then the inevitable tannoy announcement 'till 2 please' and villain 2 reappears to serve me 'next please'. Why didn't you just f*cking serve me in the first place.

This took 8 minutes precisely just to buy a mag for the Mrs and some choc for the kids.

I know people who were reserving loads of them on Sunday night in the hope the stores would honour the new prices when they were announced. Most of them couldn't find any places with stock by the time the announcement about the announcement was made on Monday. Apparently more stock will be released soon.

Yeah, basically the thing was a flop (had sold around 10% of units in US) and HP are getting out of the consumer space and have ceased all development etc, so it's a case of everything must go.

The apps are pretty limited.
I've only paid for 1 which was an RDP app called Splashtop which is excellent.

An android port isn't too far away now so not to fussed about apps at the moment.

This.

Was recently sat using the phone, on the stairs right next to my front door because I was expecting a parcel. Saw the guy walk up to my door with the "I'm sorry we missed you" slip. Why didn't you just bring the parcel instead?

To just shrug and drive off, though, might be the definition of crossing the line.

A few poker/forum ones:

Keyboard warriors, I think, people who find enjoyment in being mean on forums yet wouldn't say boo to a goose in person. Find it sad how many people are actually pretty nasty past the surface and when there is anonymity/no consequences.

All these 'This', '+1' and 'A' kind of posts. Seem pretty pointless, as if it's actually worth people seeing that you agree with a post, without you actually adding any comment or any additional thoughts on the subject. Why bother wasting a minute of your life?

People who still post bad beats on Facebook, tap the aquarium, and use terms such as 'Jokerstars', etc.

All these abbreviations I have to keep looking up, ldo.

The 'Where is so and so?' threads on 2+2.

People who beg for a rail/support when they're in the top 10 of an MTT.

I think if the same channel is in HD, it should just update it automatically, instead of letting you sit there like a mug.

Meh, mobile phone companies.

So my iPhone 3GS was up for renewal and obviously I wanted the 4GS but for the price I couldn't really justify it so I went with the Sensation XE.  Phoned up O2 today to get my old number tranferred to my new contract and they've  just offered me a 4GS for £99 with tonnes of minutes, unlimted texts and some data for only £27pm.  I quite like the XE but it's not as good as my iPhone.  The software has crashed several times since I had it (only a week or so) and the apps aren't as good.  I know die hard anti Apple Android lovers will disagree, but they're wrong.  There's more available on the iPhone and I've never had software crashing issues with it.   I clicked on my camera earlier today and my text messages opened up ffs!

Have to find out if I'm still in a cooling off period with the Sensation XE.  I'm tempted to get the iPhone!

Damn annoying that they didn't offer me this orginally when I said I was going to get something else and a hassle to sort out now.  

Nice beat to end up with an iPhone 4GS

Feck it, I think I'll stick with the Sensation.

Depends what's it's for- if people are coming round then I'd say 5mins late is better than 5 mins early

For dinner/drinks out being early  better than late cos can sit at bar etc

Just about 5th time this month someone turned up early when I'm in shower

Tbh I wouldn't invite anyone to my house who I'd be bothered about if they were early.

My mates often turn up early and I just jump in the shower as normal. They're your mates/family and know they're early - why does it matter?

semi agree, but at the same time, there were clear instances in that show where the law had been broken. whilst I don't expect a PLC to be a charity, I do expect it to abide by the law.

I'm not even bothered if it operates ethically towards consumers tbh, their only obligation is to their shareholders anyway, and I should be able to rely on the legislature to ensure that the law is a sufficient shield to malfeasance.

I haven't moved and, presuming that mobile phone transmitters are still at the top of stationary masts, and not sellotaped to pigeons, the transmitter hasn't moved either.

Where's my pigeon gone?

I'm sitting somewhere, internetting on my phone.

I have 2 bars of reception - not toasty, but adequate.

One bar disappears, then another bar - I now have no reception and get the 'you are not connected to the internet message'

WTF?

I haven't moved and, presuming that mobile phone transmitters are still at the top of stationary masts, and not sellotaped to pigeons, the transmitter hasn't moved either.

according to QI....

nobody actually knows what those bars mean in terms of reception. so they are useless.

What is the most dangerous journey known to man? It is the journey from a taxi driver's seat to someone's doorbell. No one dares make this journey. They must stay seated instead, and arouse their client's attention by means of a loud 'toooot'!

 Not having a second pair of glasses and now driving around like Mr Magoo.
Apparently you need to get your eyes tested once every 2 years as "A 4 YO prescription is no longer valid, Sir"
Sigh, "I'll make an appointment for an eye-test and buy some ones with the new prescription, just give me a pair now so that I can see FFS"

"Oh no, Sir. We can't do that. I can make an appointment for an eye-test for next Tuesday and you'll have your new glasses before Christmas"

So had to go online to order some glasses to ensure I have some next week....brilliant. (Admittedly had to tick a box saying that my prescription wasn't more than 2YO old"

Did he also try and get you to drop the price?
When I sold my house 2 buyers asked me to drop 10k on day of exchange. Soon told them to f off. First  buyer never got back in touch and second buyer backed down when he realised I was serious.

When a tv camera is pointed at an ex-boxer why are they compelled to shadow box into it. Everytime I see Joe Calzaghe on the telly he's bobbin and weavin and throwing out 3 punch combos down the lens before grinning like a loon. Loved him as a boxer but them times are long gone now Joseph and it's time to move on. I can't think of any other sport where this happens. If the camera pointed at Nick Faldo for example he wouldn't feel the urge to splash one out the bunker for old times sake and I don't see Steve Davis bridging down the lens with an imaginary cue.

To be honest I am always driven by the CHEAPEST ticket, providing the connection time is not to bad. This trip we have paid £437 each with a 6 hour stopover (thats the longest one I will have done) but at the time of booking the next cheapest was £120 more so I can live with 6 hours.

This!

This actually reminded of a little story. The wife and I used to regularly go out to dinner with another couple and we used to chop the bill equally between us. One particular night I ordered a Filet steak which was just about the most expensive item on the menu. Much to my bemusement the friends wife started having ago at me because it was 'unfair' that they should subsidise my expensive tastes lol.
I reminded her that for the 20 or so times we had been out for dinner my wife was a vegetarian who's meal were always a fraction of the price of a regular meal but we had never complained.

After our meal we had a trip to the old Midland Wheel Casino in Brum. The women agreed to play £20 each on the roulette, with my wife going first and losing. Then my friends wife played won £80 cashed in her chips and pocketed the money without splitting the winnings.

Funny enough we never went out with them again.

People of England, wearing one of these makes you look a twat. 5 years ago countryfoke had exclusive use of these NOT NOW.

2) Wife loggin into Pokerstars and doing in my whole account ($140 sounds low but I deposited £25 last week and built it up on micros) in two hands. wp wp wifey..

3) Someone letting 8 month old use my computer as a toy..

Yeah, basically the thing was a flop (had sold around 10% of units in US) and HP are getting out of the consumer space and have ceased all development etc, so it's a case of everything must go.

Good news is people are working on an Android port for it so it should be useful in future.

Thinking about it now I almost wish I'd snagged one.

thought you might be interested in this ....

Received my HP Touchpad last night, very impressed with the feel of it so far and in comparison to my ipad it actually feels better made. Not sure on performance yet but ok so far.

Seems I just won the HP lottery... any tips, good apps etc?

The apps are pretty limited.
I've only paid for 1 which was an RDP app called Splashtop which is excellent.

An android port isn't too far away now so not to fussed about apps at the moment.

Gukpt no value, paying bigger buyin to play in a tougher field for less money.

Deepstack canceled because Rob is too ethical and does not want to clash with ukipt so now you can play that which will now set a new record.

And there are 31 days in may so when you win that deepstack you can take the kids around the world for 21 days.

Yes I imagine Monday's are the nut worst days for the majority of the deepstack players.

Gold Radio - you're NOT the greatest hits of all time, to be honest, I can't stand it.   You're not even playing the greatest hits of the 60's and 70's.  Not only do I have to listen to your shit old music, I have to put up with my Dad whistling along, often out of key and improvising his own version.

Perhaps shit old music is a bit harsh, but I'm not a big fan of 60's music, especially the songs you play over and over again day after day.

Ha ha this pisses me off to. What a brilliant scam it is.

I once spent a bit too much time thinking about this while waiting for the Mrs.

The street i was parked on had 10 spaces and it was 80p and hour.
I reckon its probably conservative to say 4 out of 10 people don't have the correct change based on the type of people who will routinely park on a convenient spot at a premium rather than plan in advance to find some where thats better value.
If between the hours of 8:00 and 18:00 you expect 100% occupancy thats 100 hours, for 40 of those hours you earn an extra 20p = £8 for nothing.
Say a bigish town council has 10,000 spaces thats £800 per day.
Thats nearly 300k a year for absolutely nowt.

I bet they don't give it to charity.

Yes who actually needs an hour. Most people used to get a ticket nip into the bank or a shop and then do the right thing and pass the ticket onto someone else. Then the council tried to stop that by making you put the numbers of the reg. One punter got fined because they got the ticket of the previous space holder because they both happen to be on a 58 plate. Got into town today and now they want your full plate letters and all.

Spending a small fortune on a watch and it stops working after 5 months. It was sent back to manufacturers 6 weeks ago and I received a call today to collect from the shop.
As they are reading the report I hear the sales lady say they couldn't find anything wrong with it and was keeping perfect time. Not happy so I told them to send back.

Anyone know if I'm within my rights to ask for a refund?

It's not in Gotta pick a pocket, you may be thinking of "I'm reviewing the situation" which Fagin sings

People who find flash photography dangerous should just assume there will be flash photography on the news, cos it's the news see, and listen to the radio or read a paper instead. Or pls be warned there are images you will find disturbing in the next report. Look can we just crack on with reading the news and stop warning all the handicap and sensitive about stuff.

2. The new slidey doors at the cigarette counter to hide the bright colours from young & innocent people. What the fuck is that about? It's like a scene from the Krypton Factor mental agility round with clueless staff sliding doors back and forth trying to remember where the Embassy No.1s are.

I was queuing behind a woman at the supermarket checkout who's husband was doing the packing. She was just standing around, waiting next to the cashier. This wasn't a problem, fine, let him do the packing, that's not a problem at all. BUT after standing there doing nothing at all don't wait for the cashier to say "that'll be £34.98 please" then say "£34.98?" Cashier says "yes £34.98" and THEN start to rummage around in your bag to find your purse!!!!!! You've just stood there doing nothing and now you start emptying the contents of your cheap fake handbag looking for your purse! Why oh why couldn't you have looked whilst you were doing nothing?? - I have not managed to convey just how tilting this was in text, but rest assured it was incredibly annoying at the time!

Dissed for being polite & respectful, on Monday I was gently ribbed for being honest. The world has truly turned upside down.

Well, it's difficult to abolish a word that people are still using, but I can't think of a non-military/quasi-military context in which it is appropriate.

I don't think that people working in customer-facing roles are subordinate to their customers - they are doing their job, just as the customer does theirs when they are at work, so why should they have to adopt a subordinate position and call them sir? [Though I'm not I keen on the current fashion of waiters addressing customers, even a couple, as 'guys' either].

The other context in which it often seems to be used is when there is a difference of opinion between an organisation and a customer. The employee/manager often adopts an officious tone and starts addressing the customer as 'sir' in an officious semi-aggressive manner.

The few people who do use it in a genuine polite manner tend to come across as pretty archaic imo (or American).

It's all about personal standards and respect for others afaic.

I use the term "sir" or "Ma'am" on a daily basis, you'll see me address others on the forum as such as to me it's merely showing initial respect. I've mentioned before, I will buy a burger from a young spotty 16 year old at Maccy D's and will acknowledge him/her with sir/ma'am, it's not just to my elders.

It's obviously a generation thing looking at the replies.

As for not saluting the American officer, my unit would consider you a bit of a dousche tbh. Whilst it may not be totally obligatory, why antagonise?

I can assure you that Her Majesty, when in uniform, would salute another nations flag/anthem and return an officers salute (junior always salutes first.)

If it's good enough for Her Majesty it's certainly good enough for me.

Saluting has been a form of acknowledgement for centuries in all walks of life, possibly replacing the doffing of the hat or as a show of non-threat.

Either way, it's nice to be nice.

If it's good enough for Her Majesty it's certainly good enough for me.

Saluting has been a form of acknowledgement for centuries in all walks of life, possibly replacing the doffing of the hat or as a show of non-threat.

Either way, it's nice to be nice.

Geo

Not being a dousche or antagonising, just don't do it. Have spoken alot of others about this and general consensus is 'no way on gods earth saluting a foreigner'

Like u say, let the Queen, PM et al do that stuff

I think the difference is that whilst on duty, I understood that I was representing HM and my country  ;)

People that call other players 'sir'. 'Nice hand sir', 'its on you sir'. Especially when from younger players. I kinda find it patronising and fake.

+1 on this, but I'd add in anyone who calls you 'sir' - waiters, shop assistants, police, etc, etc. Patronising and fake is exactly how I would describe it.

Do you ever call anyone sir?

Is there ever a time when it's OK for someone to call you sir, or do you think the word should be abolished?


Well, it's difficult to abolish a word that people are still using, but I can't think of a non-military/quasi-military context in which it is appropriate.

I don't think that people working in customer-facing roles are subordinate to their customers - they are doing their job, just as the customer does theirs when they are at work, so why should they have to adopt a subordinate position and call them sir? [Though I'm not I keen on the current fashion of waiters addressing customers, even a couple, as 'guys' either].

The other context in which it often seems to be used is when there is a difference of opinion between an organisation and a customer. The employee/manager often adopts an officious tone and starts addressing the customer as 'sir' in an officious semi-aggressive manner.

The few people who do use it in a genuine polite manner tend to come across as pretty archaic imo (or American).


How should people working in customer-facing roles address their customers then?

I would prefer that they don't call me anything. I find it presumptuous, rude even, when they start calling me by my name when they don't know me. Maybe it's me.

Never been in the services but why wouldn't you 'salute a foreigner' ? They are people the same as us and if their rank warranted a salute surely it is the respectful thing to do.

As for calling people Sir or Madam, when I started my working life in Hospitality it was the expected way to address customers and it is something I have carried with me all my working life, the company I work for now emphasis the importance on addressing the guests by name but as I have very little dealing with guests I still continue to address them as Sir and Madam as I believe this to be correct.....and as Tom said earlier how should I address the guests if I don't know their names?

I agree its fine and in fact expected in hospitality etc (I was actually brought up in that environment), its just in normal social interactions I find it out of place.

Unfortunately yes - I salute them too. Although a story on this...

I was working with the Yanks, most of which were Officers. One got irate one day and asked why I did not salute him. I told him I don't have to, so I wouldn't. It gripped his sh*t. 'But I'm an officer' to which I replied 'I don't care - I'm still not saluting you'

He went on that his soldiers always made an effort to salute ours and that he thought it only right we should salute them. To which I pointed out that I don't even salute British officers. This really confused him and he went away for a while.

He came back asking why I was so special, not to salute our officers. He could have sworn he'd seen me do so a few days before. At that point I pointed out that our Officers hold the Queens commission and so, when saluting them, we're actually saluting the Queen - not the officer.

I told him that, as far as I was aware, Yank officers do not hold the Queens commission and so I would never salute him - but perhaps if they ever renounced their independence then maybe just one day I might  ;D

Sir, were you a Petty Officer ?

'Annoyed' is overstating it. And 'secretly' is a bit pejorative too - I wouldn't bother to say anything because it is rude to point out what you perceive as shortcomings in others, I'm probably not going to see them again and it is a very minor thing anyway.

So when you speak with someone who you are not on familiar terms with, you will drop in 'Mr Jones' or 'Sir' here and there in the conversation? Do you think they ever find that annoying?

No. I can honestly say that I've never though for a moment that calling someone I'm not familiar with 'Sir' or 'Mr Jones' would annoy them. After all, what else would I call them?

I understand jjandellis's point of view now. He's talking about someone he's sharing a table with calling him Sir at the end of every sentence, but your stance of 'I don't want anyone in a customer-facing situation to call me anything' frankly just boggles my mind.

I would be totally amazed, and, I have to admit, somewhat saddened if it turns out that your aversion to being addressed in any way by the people who serve you is shared by anything but a tiny minority of the population.

So true. People want you to celebrate with them. It's part of the human condition to seek acceptance and what better environment than a friendly community over a game of cards. "Look what I did! I found two good cards and made them better!"

Make a huge, (and I mean HUGE) effort to get on with your new neighbours. It's so +EV

Yea I said "Hello" day one..response "hello" and walked away...

Day 3.. "Hello" response "Hello" through strained mouth and walked away lol

I will make an effort but not when it comes to stopping my cats shitting in their garden :)

Not as tilting as standing at the pump forever waiting for the old dear in the garage to flick the switch so i can start filling which has happened twice a week for the last 13months to me. Its the only garage where i can get Nectar points though!

Driving a friend's battered golf today because my car is in the garage. I pull into the petrol station to fill up and say thanks for the loan etc but the pump I'm using doesn't work. I stand there for a bit waiting for the attendant or whatever they're called to press the button, but nothing. Then I look up and the dude is holding a big sign saying 'Please Pay First'. What is this? I mean what is this?? Fair enough the car is a bit on the ropey side but I'm clearly a man of class you cheeky fucker :)

Yea, there is a roundabout near me where people for some reason use the inside lane to go all the way around. Tilts me to bits.

But if I had my way people over 60 would only be allowed to use the bus.

3 things have pissed me off today.

1: The "&" symbol - it's caused me great pains when trying to sort through customers in alphabetical order with no guarantee it will be "&" or "and". With 6,000 companies to sort through it has become highly irritating.

2: People announcing their pregnancy on Facebook by posting their Sonogram pictures. Novel at first but that's now worn off. Sorry, but if I wanted to see the inside of your uterus I would have used Rohipnol!

3: By over-reaction to small things. I hardly ever tilt, even at the coldest of decks... but a mere ASCII character and a photo have managed to make my blood boil... yay!!

Taking 43mins on the phone to cancel my SKY, abs unreal tactics they used..i ended up telling her "this is not a debate i am cancelling". I am disgusted with how they acted.

100meg BB with virgin in two weeks, i guess 0.3 meg will have to do till then.

I remember when I was at uni, and got up and made some breakfast. Two slices of toast, nice and hot, with melted butter, and a mug of tea. I sit myself down on the settee and as I do my house'mate' bounds down the stairs, grabs a slice of my toast and takes the biggest bite out of it i've ever seen, laughs then leaves to go to uni. Day ruined.

No idea about the Alzeimers stuff mate, but some can be pretty expensive. I sell some stuff that is nearly a grand a month and the patient needs to take it every other month. ie 6k per year.

Medicine goes from a few pence up to tens of thousand per year.

You have also got to remember that something that is 'better' may not be that much better in reality and cost a disproportionate amount more than its worth.

Lol gfs ever pay their debts... One of my Exes used to try run down her tab with 'favours'.. It got to the point where I would rather just tell her to shut up for a couple of hours and I would wipe a bit off.

Went into the bookies earlier. Gave a slip over. Guy says not been settled yet mate. This is Mexico v Bosnia which finished approx 12hrs ago.. I said why has it not been settled yet, his response " because its not been settled" Not sure if he was trying to be smart or is just thick. Either way it annoyed me.

It's a tough one mate. They are not in any pain but it's heartbreaking and would the more expensive drugs make that much difference. My grandad spent the last 3 years of his life in a home and thought I was my dad. He kept calling me jimmy and asking me about life in the army.

You need to speak to his doc and ask him how much better 'better' means, and they will know the price is. In all honestly you don't really know what is going to happen with any given drug as different people respond differently to different drugs. It may work for him it may not, the only way to find out is to try it.

SKY TV and Sky Customer services

We brought Sky in April after some reluctance from myself (We get like 100 channels free on free view) .  Since April we have had numerous issues with them, they've changed our Sky viewing box 3 times and when they initially sent us our router, they did so without any wires whatsoever..

Today I spoke to Sky a customer service agent who couldn't deal with my problem so she escalated it to her manager.  Now this guy was a real piece of work, I was completely polite and asked for some empathy as we have had numerous issues, he was reluctant to even speak to me and told me there was nothing he could do as we had Sky installed from a 3rd party company (who Sky put me thru to) the analogy he gave was the following

"If you buy a tin of beans from Tesco's and it was moldy (I know he lacked any intelligence) would you send the beans back to Heinz and ask for a refund"..?

I politely told the Sky manager that buying a can of beans is completely different from signing up to a Credit agreement which you do with Sky when you sign up and also as a company Sky were vicariously liable for any issues I have with the 3rd party company.  The Sky manager then told me he couldn't do anything else for me and was terminating my call, I then asked him to put me thru to his manager he refused and put the phone down on me..

All this from a company that has the catchphrase "Believe in Better"...

We brought Sky in April after some reluctance from myself (We get like 100 channels free on free view) .  Since April we have had numerous issues with them, they've changed our Sky viewing box 3 times and when they initially sent us our router, they did so without any wires whatsoever..

Today I spoke to Sky a customer service agent who couldn't deal with my problem so she escalated it to her manager.  Now this guy was a real piece of work, I was completely polite and asked for some empathy as we have had numerous issues, he was reluctant to even speak to me and told me there was nothing he could do as we had Sky installed from a 3rd party company (who Sky put me thru to) the analogy he gave was the following

"If you buy a tin of beans from Tesco's and it was moldy (I know he lacked any intelligence) would you send the beans back to Heinz and ask for a refund"..?

I politely told the Sky manager that buying a can of beans is completely different from signing up to a Credit agreement which you do with Sky when you sign up and also as a company Sky were vicariously liable for any issues I have with the 3rd party company.  The Sky manager then told me he couldn't do anything else for me and was terminating my call, I then asked him to put me thru to his manager he refused and put the phone down on me..

All this from a company that has the catchphrase "Believe in Better"... 

Hi Bang bang i work at sky customer services Help TV i am in work on saturday and will investigate for you and see if their is anything at all i can do!

I am hopeing (not that it is any excuse) that this came from an out sourced call center rather then from sky!

Will message you and get some details from you and see what i can sort out!

Thanks Bronto...

Disclaimer to everyone who sees this i dont have a magic wand! But i do like to believe i am pretty good at fixing issues for people! Or finding the right people to get things fixed! I dont have super magicall sky offers to give out but if you have any questions i dont mind people messaging me them and i will see if i can fix them!

Thanks for the wages ;)

Bob.

Just sent the boys (twins 3 older one 5) upstairs for a bath. They ran into their older brothers room (who just turned 19) and I hear screams. This would be normally funny but I am pissed off I missed out :(

"why does Daniels girl friend sleep nudey rudey dad?"


Edit: with the last girl friend I had to shout him at 4 am telling him "Ffs Daniel if she is screaming like that she ain't enjoying it son".    That one never came back either. Omg I could write a book. I just remembered one of his birds had to dump him because she was pregnant and did not want to put Daniel through it because she thought the father was black. Turns out to be the case too :)

Funny you say that, I found out late last year that I had some kind of thing where fizzy drinks (diet coke, coke, etc) give me headaches.  Been getting them for a while and never thought it could be that.  I cut them out for a bit as a tester and it seemed to improve.  Went for lunch with a mate a few weeks later, forgot and had a pint of diet coke and had a cracking headache that evening.   Good to find it out.

If they ride two abreast you have to treat them like a slow vehicle, but you can pass them when there's nothing coming the other way.

If they ride single file, you can pass them even if there is something coming the other way, but you have to squeeze past. Not pleasant. (You should know, you're a cyclist).

When I go out, if I ride near the curb drivers always try to squeeze past even if there is a bollard in the road making it too narrow.

God forbid they should have to slow down for 3 seconds.

Consciousness cyclists are not a problem but when they are two abreast on a windy road which is a mile long and you have to venture on the other side of the road to pass them then that is just plain ignorance, its selfish and most of all dangerous to everyone. If they were in single file there would be plenty of room for everybody.

When overtaking a cyclist you have to be far enough away from them so they can fall off without being run over, so you need to on the other side of the road anyway

A few seconds fine - but crawling along behind a bunch of guys in lycra who are pretending you're not there while they hog the main road despite there being plenty of beautiful back roads is very frustrating. Especially as you can pass a single cyclist safely in places where you can't pass a car doing 40-50mph.

What about the people who drive on back roads, won't they complain?

What if the beautiful back road doesn't lead to where the cyclist needs to go?

We seem to have gone from two blokes riding side by side to a car doing 40-50

When you start taking what cyclists wear into consideration, you're losing the argument.

There are a lot of considerate cyclists on the road, its the inconsiderate fkers that piss me off. The road is for everyone use. I would not intentionally make riding on the road unsafe for cyclists and I would appreciate the same back.

Now if it was a sexy female cyclist holding me up then I would be prepared to wait all day admiring the view.

If you're a cyclist and you ride close to the curb, you have absolutely nowhere to go when a car or a lorry squeezes past.

When your sitting in a lorry or a car, a foot seems like a nice margin for error, but it's really not.

Try this experiment. Get one of your kids or your Mrs to go for a bike ride with you. Let them go in front. I guarantee you will ride well wide to prevent the traffic from passing too close to them, and your heart will be in your mouth most of the time.

I would %100 protect my family buy not putting them in that position in the first place.
Tom I understand what you're trying to say and yes cyclists do deserve more room to be safe and as I said previously I always try to give cyclists space when I overtake them.
The situation that pissed me off the other day was not about 2 cyclists trying to protect each other it was about to ignorant fckers who insisted to block the whole lane by riding  side by side on a windy road which has a national speed limit. There were 6 cars queuing behind them waiting patiently to pass while these 2 muppets were ambling along at less than 10 MPH.  They deseved to get knocked off their bikes.

People who won't move over into an empty outside lane to let you filter into the lane they are in despite you having indicated and it being flaming obvious anyway
This on a stretch of road designed by a pedestrian with four lanes of traffic and two junctions within about 400 yards where it's not always possible to get up to the speed of the road you want to join due to cars in front of you.

Generally speaking these people will be driving a penis substitute made by Mercedes or BMW

A friend of mine whilst in the army used to always drive in the centre lane of an empty motorway ...when I questioned him on why he did this the reply was
"because if I fall asleep I have a lane either side and there is less chance I'll crash"

People who won't move over into an empty outside lane to let you filter into the lane they are in despite you having indicated and it being flaming obvious anyway

People who automatically move over from the inside lane into the second lane as if the cars coming in from the side have priority over the faster-moving traffic outside.

Working in an open office. Especially when a colleague comes back from his lunchtime run, has a shower, sprays himself with some smelly deodorant shit, get is home cooked rice out from his Tupperware container, heats it up in the microwave and stinks the fcking office out.

As we just moved I am in the process of getting a cat flap installed (£135 quote to cut the class to put the flap in gtf) in the mean time our one cat has the smelliest shits I have ever smelt, its wee aint much better smells like acidic juice :( I think it be worth spending the wedge to get that smell out of the house.

Twice in one day yesterday.

1) Murderer escapes from a prison in England. BBC Correspondent notes that 'this will certainly raise security issues'. Ahhh, one of those prisons for keeping people in then.

2) Severe flooding affected several areas yesterday, and in fact the rain was so bad that a fire station was flooded. Fire Service spokesman on tv 'The main problem as far as the flooding is concerned has been the sheer volume of water.' Not a dry flood then?

Big nationally known companies whose Accounts Payable Departments are set up to frustrate the efforts of small suppliers to get paid.

Supplied a well known Haulage company over the Jubilee Weekend. They wouldn't normally even give us a chance to pitch for business but they were in a mess with a lack of capacity to keep their major customers delivieries on time. I've just had the invoice returned for the second time.
Once because the address I was given was the wrong deprartment and now, a week later, because it doesn't have the Purchase Order Number that I was assured locally wasn't needed)

Calorific values as stated on food packaging.

First of all the writing is ridiculously small, I mean so small I can't even read it with my glasses on, I have to get a magnifying glass.

Then, when I finally manage to see it it says something like.

120 kcal per 1/3 pack.

Or

143 kcal per serving.

Or, worst of all

118 kcal per 67g Cooked weight. 

How the fuck am I supposed to know what it weighs when it's cooked until I've cooked it and weighed it?

of course it matters LDO

This is completely standard right? Purely for personal safety, also the amount of lorries > amount of people overtaking on outside. I tend to drive in the middle, but move over for a car coming, saves the effort of going past lorries +sleep thing

Happily go about my business of the weekly grocery shopping, pay my bill and get the receipt.  On it they tell you "Ooops, we've compared prices with the others and discovered we've charged you xx.xx more than our competitors.  Here's a coupon towards your next shop for the difference."   

Well WTF?!  Sure, let me make another trip to you and over pay again because you'll give me a fkn coupon.  How about if you just charge me right price in the first place?!   ;frustrated;  I won't be shopping there again.

Anyone ringing my land line past 7pm on a night..its not cool and my little ones are asleep you are going to get a negative attitude from me so beware.

The latest set of goons were from Poker770 I signed up to via Poker strategy ages ago. They rung me at 9pm telling me I had to send them a copy of my passport or driving licence I told them why? they couldn't answer. I was not withdrawing money so I don't understand why they kept hassling me about it, about 3 phone calls I have had from asking the same thing, stupid workers who cant even speak English or understand my responses..

A couple of days ago I rang up a customer for the third time about sending in his identity documents for a poker website.  I don't know why he couldn't just send them in first time.  He starts telling me all about how Yorkshire are doing in the olympics.  I tell him that I don't think they are competing, and he starts raging about gods country or something.  I do not even know which god he is talking about. 

I politely ask him for the documents again and he starts shouting about the brownleys.  I say do you mean bramley apples?  He then explodes, saying I can't even speak English.  I wouldn't normally object but he has this funny accent and is not talking at all like the queen.  I was struggling to follow him as he started shouting about camels.  I don't even think camels eat apples.

He eventually tells me he is peaced off.  I wish him peace too and he slams the phone down.

I am just trying to do an honest days work.  I am going to have to ring him again next week and hope he is calmer.  I'll ring him a little later next time as he might be more relaxed later in the evening.

I bet he can't even speak Hindi.

The local council (Kirklees) who won't remove an abandoned car on my street, because there "isn't enough evidence it is abandoned"

a) it has been there for over 6 weeks
b) it does not belong to any of the residents (I have been round and asked them)
c) the tax disc expired at the end of May 2012
d) all the tyres are flat

Apparently it would need to have it's windows smashed in or be torched before they would take any action.  OK where's my sledgehammer and lighter?

Where do I start.

What a shit day Saturday was, nothing life threatening or serious but when things go wrong they go wrong...

Started of by helping the wife out by emptying the dishwasher and promptly broke one of her 'special mugs', soon followed by dropping my TAG watch and busting the steel strap.
At about midday I drove my car through a ford, the same ford which I had many times driven through before and managed to get water ingress' meaning the car wouldn't go.
I called BMW assist and a kind lady gave me the number to the breakdown people. After 50 min hanging on the call only to be told you're not covered with RAC. Bollocks!

Managed to get hold of the dealer and they gave me a new number to call..... Barclays Bank premium customers account phone number. WTF!!!

Back on the phone to the dealer and finally the correct number was supplied. I was back home 2 hours later and the car was in the dealership.

On to DTD, get knocked out around midnight after a pretty slow game with my best starting hand being 77. On the way back travelling on the M42 i hit a house brick at 70+ mph. Thought I was a gonner as I tried to avoid it at the last second.

Anyway I did survive the day but f**k me did it piss me off.

Edit: Forgot to mention when I bought into the £150 my card was declined because the bank didn't recognise the same transaction of completed plenty of times before. On Saturday morning the bank called me and an automated system told me that it thought some transactions were suspect and would I confirm they were mine. I confirmed them all as mine and guess what, they cancelled the card and a new one will be with me soon. :dontask:

The funny thing is is when it got declined on DTD online I just used another bank card with the same bank and it went through first time.

I can't understand how this would ruin an engine unless the water got into the oil and then it ran for long enough to damage the bores or the crank, and I can't see that happening without it making a Hell of a racket.

I would imagine the water just caused an electrical fault.

I would ask for a full explanation or get a second opinion.

Apprently water is sucked in through the inlet which is low on my car. The water had got into the cylinder heads and as water doesn't compress very well it damaged the head, the con rods and the block. All the parts could be replaced but as a safety measure they want to replace the whole engine. BMW insurance are the nuts. After one call they've organised all for me incuding replacement car.

I take it you are not a "dog person" if you are "shocked" by the sight of dogs off their leads.
As a responsible dog owner,I have taken dogs (and children) to the beach for many ,many years without incident and to the enjoyment of all concerned.

No he's right: dogs OFTEN bite people. You know, often. A high proportion of the time, when let off a lead, a dog will bite someone.

I mean there is a report every few weeks of a dog biting someone and there are only 10.5million dogs in the UK. And not all of the incidents are reported, so if someone is bitten by a dog every day, that's 365 incidents.

Children are more dangerous. After all, humans cause more damage. Just look at the news: pretty much all humans causing trouble, killing other humans, injuring other humans, some of them doing it supervised and authorized by other humans.

My wife said to me the other day whilst we were in a public park that someone's dog should be on a lead. I said that was stupid and where were dogs meant to exercise and run around. She tried to convince me it's the law but I was not having that.

I have a lot of sympathy for dog owners and keep my kids on the lead as much as I can

Dogs do often bite people. 6,000 people a year are hospitalised in the UK due to attacks by dogs. That's in-patients - not A&E.

In total, 250,000 are bitten badly enough to get medical treatment, usually from A&E or GP. Over 20,000 of those are facial injuries.

How many would you add on for minor bites where people don't feel the need for medical treatment - the same again?

Looks like you're the one making the absurd statements, estimating the number of attacks at a thousandth of the actual.

This is a sensitive subject, so I shall back down and say I'm sorry that I have caused offence. Responsible dog ownership should allow for the majority of dogs to be able to run around off the lead in open public spaces. Whilst I disagree with your conclusion, I should absolutely have responded in a more respectful manner, perhaps being less eager to be quick on the draw.

Owners should know their dog and make sensible calculations on whether it is safe. Being off the lead is fun for the dog after all and the vast majority of situations in which a dog comes into contact with a human don't lead to anything more than a pat, a tail wag and a smile.

A packed beach is much less conducive to a dog friendly environment than a beach with half a dozen people and dogs in the morning. Again, comes back to responsible dog ownership and, rather than discuss the statistics further, let's at least find common ground there.

Looks like you're the one making the absurd statements, estimating the number of attacks at a thousandth of the actual.


This is a sensitive subject, so I shall back down and say I'm sorry that I have caused offence. Responsible dog ownership should allow for the majority of dogs to be able to run around off the lead in open public spaces. Whilst I disagree with your conclusion, I should absolutely have responded in a more respectful manner, perhaps being less eager to be quick on the draw.
Thanks for that.

Quote
Owners should know their dog and make sensible calculations on whether it is safe. Being off the lead is fun for the dog after all and the vast majority of situations in which a dog comes into contact with a human don't lead to anything more than a pat, a tail wag and a smile.
Absolutely. Between ¼-½ million times a year it will lead to an attack, but I accept that, with 10 million dogs, the number of times it will be a lovely experience which enhances the lives of all involved will be in the billions.

Quote
A packed beach is much less conducive to a dog friendly environment than a beach with half a dozen people and dogs in the morning. Again, comes back to responsible dog ownership and, rather than discuss the statistics further, let's at least find common ground there.
Agreed. Let's shake on it.

Kinda screwed now, no extra day in nursery for kid just the free 15hours and having to cut back on everything.

Good news though, batch number 2 has made it to the oven and will be ready in approx 45-60 mins :)

There is a hole in it that my daughters scooter went over and she broke her tibia. Pot on for 4-6  weeks. It could have been much worse I guess, are the council liable?

I'm pretty sure that potholes on roads, if unrepaired after being reported, create a liability for the council.

Check any insurance policies you may have - home and contents, car, credit card, bank account, whatever - as many have legal expense insurance included. Call them up and see whether they will put you in touch with (or get them to contact) the solicitors on their accredited panel.

Legal case can be funded through your insurance. Usually better for you than a No Win No Fee although solicitors will advise you on your individual circumstances.

Get photos done and medical records etc if you want to take it further.
