If you drink like a tool, ie scotch, beer and wine, dont drink water, drink absolute shit quality stuff, then obviously you're going to get stung. But if you rehydrate properly (magnessium and potassium tablets the next day and before bed if possible are a lifesaver), get a good breakfast in, then get a good walk and plenty of fresh air, then you should be able to shift a hangover within 5 or 6 hours easy. If that doesnt work, then hair of the dog, taper off and crash early in the evening.

Yep, I agree. I just stick to one kind of drink now. And even just one type of beer.

And feel better on the morning after.

I have seen this one wheeled out. Are you talking about the sad duty free argument again.

How does everyone try to avoid paying PAYE income tax?

How is the Duke of Westminster, Lewis Hamilton or the Qeen a successful capitalist? How is Donald Trump assuccessful capitalist for that matter?

Successful capitalists only avaoid paying tax because they have access to the people and infrastructure not available to mere mortals.

Would an offshore bank in the Caymans be interested in helping you with your pension pot, and the paltry amount you are likely to leave to your kids.

And it is the way the world works which is why governments dont tackle it.

Dont talk shite.

We have the government we have because people voted for lower taxation.

(almost) everyone pays as little taxes they can and looks for every single rebate, loophole or allowance they can find.

I don't agree with tax avoidance, I just think complaining about people being better at it than you has the faint aroma of hypocrisy.

Clearly the Queen, Duke of Wellington, Lewis Hamilton and Trump are successful Capitalists. They live at the acme of Capitalist society and milk it for all its worth.

No, successful capitalists create capital. They just benefit from the system.

They empluoy people to do the work for them. It is the same as rich people benefitting from the banking system. The money they earn in interest and the amount they get charged for credit, AND the access they have to large credit options is beyond the imagination of most people.

The system is hugely cocked in their favour.

You can't compare people that have huge swaythes of inherited wealth, and are footballers or racing drivers, to regular folk; and then suggest that regular folk should only blame themselves because they are not talented capitalists in comparison.

That is utter bollox. I'd like to see the Queen successfully run a chip shop. Or the Duke of Westminster start with nothing, no contacts, no rich friends and a state education - lets see how successful he will become.

That is not true either.

If they wanted to be rich badly enough they would achieve it.

The poor may be jealous of the rich. But that isnt a justification for the biggest landowner in the country not paying at least 20% on his earnt income. Not on his assets, on the income those assets accrue.

And you thinking this trite enables them to continue to use this system forevermore.

You live in a country where grandma has to pay a bedroom tax on that spare room, but the Duke of Westminster doesn't have to pay any tax at all. Or a minimum amount. Grandma worked all her life raising her family, and seeing them into the world. The Duke of Westminster inherited his pile and leaves it with people to manage. The Tory government are going after one and not the other. Is that acceptable?

I never said I believed in it, agreed with it or thought that it was acceptable.

Argos

We ordered a mattress a week ago which should have been delivered yesterday with the usual text that it will be here between 9-11am with call an hour before, by 10.30 I felt without the call that something was up so the wife who placed the order (with her mums store card) finds out the lorry has broken down (fair enough) and that when they transfer goods onto new vehicle then we would be phoned an hour before as usual.

Half five my misus decides to phone again to check status to be told that there ever so sorry but the mattress wouldn't fit (superking) on the replacement van, that they would knock the delivery charge off (fair enough) but would give us a call between 6-7am today with an update.

Well that never happened so I phone them to find out what's going on (bearing in mind my wife did yesterday) and was told because I wasn't the account holder then they would not speak to me even though I had explained the above to him so had to ask mum in law to ring which she did only for her to be told the transport side of things don't open til 9am so expect a call after then.

Mattress will get delivered on Monday after driver has finished using it himself over the weekend.

Vince Hilaire's Afro 18-11-2017 11:20 AM

I remember Argos screwing up a sofa delivery and a TV/stereo and stand installation etc. for me. Both times they kept trying to blame it on the delivery company, saying it was nothing to do with them etc. I think they were even expecting me to chase them up. Waiting for my TV was taking weeks.

In the end, I had to point out that my obligation to do anything ended the second they got my money, and their obligation to get me my ******* stuff ASAP, regardless of what delivery companies they decided to use, began. Ended up getting it finally within a day or two, and told them to stuff their delivery and installation fee up their arse. Amazing that they were able to 'encourage' the delivery firm to pull their finger out after all...

Oh no it's now got better.

We paid to have the old mattress disposed, driver (or mate) rang me to tell me delivery will be with us soon, have we bought old one down (me and mate did thursday) and is it in green bag? what green bag? we can't take it away unless it's in the bag.

Well argos never sent a bag out and these guys are just contractors so after a heaty exchange (with sympathy because I've been a del driver) we get back onto argos who tell my wife they'll refund the removal charge as the driver should carry these bags with them but don't have one but we have to dispose ourselves now their price was £20 council will probably be around £50

I want to tell them to stick it up there arse but my wife is disabled and has had to sleep with me downstairs for 2 nights and I've been sleeping on the sofa for 2 weeks as the old mattress was causing me insomnia.

A Chilean take on the thread. Young adults seem to be veritable wizzes on their smart phones here. But when they get a new bank card they have the universally inability to change the password onscreen. It is easy, type the paswword you were given, hit the green button. Type your new password hit the button again, type the new password again.

They dont read the instructions on the screen.

When I see them pissing about, I head off to find another machine.

They also cant get their head around having no money in their account. And have to put the card in a few times, and print a piece of paper to confirm the fact. This usually ends up with me telling them to move on TBH. Students going a bit lairy on daddies allowance on Friday night and shocked that there isnt any more money left on Monday morning, or at least that daddy hasnt sent through the top up as he promised. Probably mummy tbf - a nation of mummies boys here. Despite my wifes supposed blanket refusal regarding my kids (32, 31, 29), I often see the odd 20 or 30 quid being transferred to their accounts.

Seek out the most popular, dandy and confident lecturer, cable tie him to a tree and strategically place vinchucas or recluses on the soft parts around the front and middle of his body until you get some answers. A background soundtrack of Stealers Wheel might add tho the effect.

I managed to piss him off majorly season before last when I was stewarding, without knowing who he was.

After the game, he was demanding access to the dressing room area. He had no pass, so I told him, no, at least half a dozen times. He demanded my name and told me he was going to report me to Steve Parish. I told him "Steward 101". As he stalked off in a huff, I saw The Moose on his fleece badge.

I don't know if it's a something that's come from above, but I've started to notice how staff at palace are becoming really friendly as you leave the ground. I got one sickly smile off a grisly old steward on Saturday, two "good-byes", and one "have a safe journey home". Disgusting!

Not me. I had to give up 18 months for health reasons.

But , yes, it was an ongoing "push to be more customer-friendly". No "Enjoy the game" at the start??

After the game, he was demanding access to the dressing room area. He had no pass, so I told him, no, at least half a dozen times. He demanded my name and told me he was going to report me to Steve Parish. I told him "Steward 101". As he stalked off in a huff, I saw The Moose on his fleece badge. Apparently he always tried it on despite not having a valid pass. I heard nothing more.


Repped for pissing him off - he is a grade 1 tosser and if I could rep Roy I would

Worse, actually. I was still in the queue to get in when the first goal was scored. Most people did a half-suppressed celebration, I just muttered to myself; but the female steward suddenly took on the persona of a butlins holiday rep and tried to get everyone to celebrate louder. Ah, it was grim.

Indeed. There are long term impacts on that. Not least bank cfedit for studies not resulting with a degree. They still have to be paid back. In the end I have helped out my oldest by paying back his credits for him. My second son has benifitted from new free higher education that has recently come in (despite costing me cash on two previous failed attempts).

I wont be helping my daughter out paying back cash for a non/resulting education. That is ridiculous.

I picked up on one of the anti/muslim memes posted by Palace fans on Facebook today. People I friended that are Palace fans, but perhaps dont have the most liberal views.

I took them to task for their constant re-sharing of the anti-muslim message. Followed by the same 10 grunts (all Palace) always agreeing with it.

I was polite and asked how it affected their lives, why do they need to get wound up by muslims. I was asked about living in Chile etc.. I asked who they would blame for their poor quality of lives once the muslims were thrown out, and they asked me if I wanted Shaira Law. I asked if how many extreme muslims were in pariament etc..

They deleted the thread.

I think I will follow them around a bit on that. I could unfriend them, they will probably unfriend me anyway. But I dont think people should be constantly sharing Britain First memes all over facebook.

They said that The Daily Mail was the finest newspaper in The UK.

Yep. Maybe it is getting to the point of having had its day.

Only time I see it is if someone posts a Palace goal or something SP or SJ has said on it, and it is reposted here.

I hope you can help her stay that one more month...even if you have to bribe her with the promise of a treat afterwards.

She is more obstinant than her mother. And she has no excuse for not finishing and getting it on her CV. She is on the last 3 weeks of practice, and she has to prepeare a thesis. My wife is specifically not working to help out with the grandkid. And my daughters partner has just qualified as a doctor, so he is free for a few months.

My daughter is just taking the easy, lazy way out. She froze the course for two years when she was pregnant first time around. Then she made a big show at the start of this year about going back to finish.

This soap opera is five years long now, for a 2 and a half year course.

It has not only been her (lack of) sacrifice, but many others in the family, too.

I'd go for that

Just been in Meadowhall to be faced with hundreds of BF banners in every shop (except Apple...) and then get home and the first thing that comes up on the TV is a BF advert for someone

That irritating swishing noise that accompanies the graphics showing the team lineups on Sky as the second half gets under way. Just f*CK off. What is the f*cking point of it. C**TS.

People who travel into work from King's Lynn (north Norfolk to save you checking) moaning about their 2 hour train journey EVERY morning.

People who moan about people who moan.
