I don't think you're supposed to share nuts in pubs, anyway. They're not communal nuts. Some irritant brings them round when you're trying to get drunk so that the salt dehydrates your mouth, making you buy more booze.

It's not supposed to be some hipster-shared-experience-thing.

That's something that annoys me: going to a really nice coffee shop (I like poncy coffee), wanting to buy a cake, but being put off by the lack of a window or similar cover. I don't care that your clientele are well-bread and broad-minded, and their kids have more character at six than I do at 40, I don't want cake that's been sneezed and coughed over all morning (or even just spoken over). It's really off-putting.

I feel like someone needs to point it out to them.

Must admit I am same both with the poncy coffee and the ******* cake. Really surprised they can do it to be honest. Worse still probably came out of wrapper out the back anyway.

When I have had it half time it's a bit dried out and crispy not sure if that's the air or the snot causing it..

A bit of a follow on to my Brits Abroad gripe a page or so back.

I notice many will talk about "Going home", as in, "Have you been home lately?".... er yes every night. Or, "Sorry we can't make that night we are going home for a few weeks".

This coming from people who have lived here 30+ years.

I appreciate home is where your heart is, so I do question their motives for being here. And again this is a predominately, but not exclusive, female trait.

The lady who 3 times in a row in the spinning class has sat on the bike by the fan that helps cool the room down and then turns it off as its ‘cold’. Try moving to a different bike then (another cyclist suggested this to her but not so politely)

And whats the new fashion to sit sideways on a train seat in rush hour with legs under the space in front of the adjacent seat?.

You didn’t quote another post in the post I quoted of yours, where you were talking about dirty men’s cocks. How I am, on one of the busiest threads of the BBS supposed to know it’s a reference to something else? So looking from an objective perspective can you see that your post if viewed as from a first time viewer seems odd.

What did I miss out on?

My perspective was, I made a post saying how I found it annoying that people snort on a train, and then he posted his which I did find abit odd for the reason mentioned before...

I recently emptied the Help for Heroes charity box in our shop and went to pay it in at our local Lloydís bank as Iíve done every times itís become full.

But apparently you canít do this anymore Ďdue to money launderingí legislation.

The banks solution? Pay the money into my account and then do a BACís transfer. :rolleyes: Personally Iím not at all comfortable paying charity money into either my business or private accounts, it just seems wrong.

How does that solution work if they won't take the cash over the counter?

Was there any difference in acceptance of coins versus folding money?

Sounds like Trump's wall...

More a question for Blind, but I'm sure we are "only" talking about a couple of hundred quid at the most here... that is going to take a lot of laundering to make the risk worthwhile to a crook! I thought the banks were only concerned when numbers got over 10K (If that's the sum we are talking about here, than I have to say... Well done Blind!)

What absolute nonsense! If they're happy for the money to arrive in the HfH account they're not actually interested in preventing money laundering at all!

Oh, and if you've no option but to pay the money into one of your accounts then make it the business one. At the end of your tax year you can always offset it as a charitable donation... :D

Had yet another one of these this morning. An Uber driver, of course. Three turns in a row with no indication. As it happened, he stopped in the same street as me, so I went over to have a word. I pointed out that my kids walk around these streets, and it helps to know the intentions of drivers. He just looked at me blankly. These people shouldn't be on the roads. Mind you, they are angels in comparison to the f*ckers on delivery mopeds. How are most of them still alive?

Still don't get it. My bank won't take any cash over the counter now, for my account or anyone else's. It's an absolute ballache when you do a lot of activities with older folk, who 99% prefer dealing in old money. That's not a criticism but a reality these banks don't seem to appreciate.

Isnít it ridiculous.

I run a few events per year for a charity and up until recently Iíd take the cash to the bank and pay it into their account. Paid in promptly at my convenience, and I have a receipt from the bank.

Now they wonít take it from me I have to arrange to meet a member of that charity and hand it over to them as they have the necessary forms that at least allow them to pay it in.

The other alternative they said is to pay it into my personal account and then transfer it to the charity, but I donít like Ďtheirí money coming through my account...it feels potentially dodgy and itís large sums which could effect my taxes.

As you say, the banks are so painful now.

The banks solution? Pay the money into my account and then do a BACís transfer. :rolleyes: Personally Iím not at all comfortable paying charity money into either my business or private accounts, it just seems wrong.

Iíve had the same problem. Luckily the money is for a local charity, so I Ďonlyí have the inconvenience of having the arrange to meet their Treasurer and give her the cash.

In your situation Iíd contact Help for Heroes and ask them what theyíd like you to do, as they must be experiencing this issue all the time now. There might be advice on their website?

In a similar vein, I recently tried to pay off my mother's Access Card balance of just over £1000. Turned into a nightmare.

1. NatWest refused to accept my Lloyds debit card :confused:. Told me to go to Lloyds.
2. Lloyds told me they thought I needed set up a new payee account and make a payment to them that way.
3. I pointed out the payment instructions to pay by debit card on the back of the banking slip. Person I spoke to was highly dubious.
4. Eventually found a sensible cashier who agreed with my analysis of the details and entered the reference and string of zeros when it asked for an account as per the instructions. Payment went through in full, no problem, 10 days before the due date.
5. Whole lot took just about an hour in the end.

To add insult to aggravation, a new bill arrived a few days ago demanding £7.46 in interest despite the account being settled in full AND before the due date. It further added that if the payment was made in time, the next bill would be for 17p more interest :veryangry.

WTF?? You can ever settle sensibly with these sorts of rules??

One strong phone call later, they agreed to write off the £7.46 "as a gesture of goodwill". It is all on the banks' side. Joe Public doesn't stand a chance. I would write a poem about it if I could think of a rhyme for 'bankers'....

A mate of mine reached the last year of his mortgage and it was down to just a few hundred pounds to finish paying.

So he thought he might as well get it finished with one big payment and spoke to his bank about it. Turns out, they wanted more money from him in ‘admin charges’ for finishing his mortgage early than he owed them!

They wouldn’t budge so he said, stuff you then, you can keep collecting £50 a month in direct debit from me for another year and then we’ll finish the mortgage bang on time with no early redemption fee thanks very much.

So the bank lost the opportunity to receive all their money early in preference for the tiny amount of interest they’d receive on his £50/month.

Sort of had the same scenario. I believe it's standard practice and there in the small print (or was mine anyway). I did the same and just let it run its course until the end.

As much as I love this time of year (Spring is in the air etc.) it is really annoying that the pollen has started arriving and with it my nose just drips all day long... I'm like a bloody healthy dog!

Same here mate. Was out in Edinburgh woods for work last week and the old itchy, streaming eyes started with abundance. Strangely, when I was in Sacramento, my hay fever didnít make an appearance once. :confused:

Hedgehog 01-04-2019 06:58 AM

Odd that. Sacramento being a pretty agricultural area and all. Maybe not the trees though which really get me.

People are affected by different pollen arenít they. My mumís hay fever is worse in Feb March when certain trees start to pollinate. Mine hits bad in July when the grass pollen is at its height. But I never ever get it when Iím abroad

Hay fever is the main reason I have summer as my least favourite season

Pousb 01-04-2019 04:50 PM

People who spend most of their lives in a smartphone. Videos about cats. Large queues. Rap. Politicians. Inadequate rules and laws. Bureaucracy. Injustice. Modern filmmaking. Itís a countless list.

That's a good point, we are surrounded by Sycamore trees and at this time of year they give off this yellow pollen dust that covers everything in the back and front yard. I feel like I'm snorting yellow cocaine!

When back in England a few years back my wife and I went for a walk through some fields and she went into full allergy mode, while it didn't seem to affect me at all.

I did a wee bit of gardening in the fine weather yesterday, turning over the soil in the flower beds and pulling a few weeds. Nothing too hectic.
Today I'm greeted by cat shit in 2 different places where I turned the soil. I've got young kids so this drives me f***ing apeshit and it stinks.

I've sprinkled some dangerously hot chilli powder on the soil so if it happens again, moggy's teeth will fall out when it licks it's feet to clean up. Any other suggestions to stop it happening in the first place please?
Lion shit doesn't work. I've tried.

Ok anyone know if you can suddenly “get” Hay fever. I’ve had a cold since I came back from the alps at half term in Feb! It’s very odd. runny nose, sneezing when waking up then better but still there with the odd sneeze and itchy nose during the day. If it is I’m going to be verynpissed off at surviving 59 years then bloody getting it

A dog

When they eventually catch it and tear it to shreds it wonít be your fault. It pisses me off that if my dog crapped on the neighbours lawn he would soon be jumping up and down but cats ???? ďOh what can I do?Ē STICK A CORK UP ITS ARSE or get a litter tray

Have you never had it before? Mine died down for 24 years and now has flared up for the past couple of years.

My suspicion is that climate change and the fact our seasons are now all over the place has contributed to our allergic sensitivities being knocked out of balance.

I didn't have it up to 15, then it suddenly started. I got it really badly.

When I was 20, I lived in Germany for a year (having looked up the German for hayfever), but absolutely nothing.

Came home, it restarted with a vengeance, all through my finals, and continued right up to 2001 and my first heart attack, then strangely it went.

These days, I sometimes get a little bit of sneezing and runny nose, much like yourself, but nothing much really.

Weird.
