Where's grumpy Gold gone? Is he just saving his gripes up so he can make a list?

People who slam their Boris Bike into the bracket with as much force and noise as possible without dismounting. Oooh, what a show of bravado.

Probably the same tossers who rode through every red light, pedesrtian crossing and along every pavement to get there.

"annoy" no, ******* angry yes....the scum who decided that throwing 7 young pups into our local river and watching them drown was better than taking them to the local pound or dog sanctuary.

My 17 year old daughter pulled them out whilst walking our dog today, she is distraught and can't believe peoples cruelty and neither can I. This world is full of shits that dont deserve to draw another breath.

Ffs . There are C nuts the world over but Spain has a terrible rep. Look at all the Hunters and their Galgos that they hang at the end of each season. Hopefully younger generations come through and stop this barbaric practice.

a lot of tht here. Everywhere really. Look at the numbnuts that got pandemic pets. Vacuous twats that act on impulse and don't do responsibiility. I recently shared Les's story about the Canadian 'friends' that gave up their dog of 7 years for a cheap pandemic breaking holiday. They all refer to themselves as animal lovers, I'm sure.

davech 07-04-2022 12:49 PM

EDF.

My unit charge has been hiked by 130% - a combination of being on low fixed tariff previously and chosing to fix for the future (which incurred an extra hike).
And daily standing charge also increased by 75%. How do they justify that??

It's nothing short of legalised robbery. Luckily I don't use that much power. The only consolation is that my monthly cost is still 'only' around what I was paying two years ago in my old property on my key meter with British Gas :D

One thing that really grinds my gears is those awful airports that design a zig-zagging duty-free shop that you have to walk around before getting to the main departure areas. If I want to buy some alcohol, perfume or chocolates, I'm quite happy to go and find them, rather than have to walk through some awful contrived arcade full of dawdling simpletons.

Call centre staff are responsible for my high blood pressure I’m sure. I have just had to deal with Hotels.com and they simply don’t have a clue. Complete idiots and based, from the accents, in the Philippines. On the other hand I dealt with first direct (Uk) and Virgin (South Africa/Africa) and they have been outstanding. Indian ones others that invariably leads me to :wallbash:

gold76 07-04-2022 05:44 PM

Without going old Johnny soap box, I think the stat was you can employ 3 (foreign) call centre staff for the price of one Uk one.

Hedgehog 07-04-2022 06:03 PM

On one of those home renovation type shows here, there is a husband and wife team who when the guy is talking to his wife begins or ends every sentence with "Babe", and her in reply will also begin or end the sentence with "Babe".

Probably says more about me, but after 37 years of being married I can categorically state I have never called my wife "Babe" nor she me.

Cringeworthy...

Sainsbury's

Keep giving me till offers for "£18 off when you spend £60 on your first online order"

1. I have never spent £60 in one hit ever (apart from when I bought a load of Easter Eggs -even then it was under £50), and I never will. £25 max. Check with your Big Brother tills.
2. I like to see what I am getting.
3. I can substitute sensibly if I shop in person.
4. I don't want to sit around awaiting their convenience to deliver.

I shall stay on the bus and give Tescos a try. Maybe they are better value and have more tills open. And don't get me started on self-service tills :veryangry. Nectar points are worth diddly squat these days, so there is little incentive any more. I will probably stop using Nectar to stop them spying on me.

I live alone, and the last 10 years of living on Universal Credit/Incapacity Benefits and latterly my pensions, I have learned to live carefully. One 'big' shop weekly and the occasional 'top-up' suffices. I don't drive any more, so I am limited to what I can carry. No big deal - it is enough. I don't feel deprived at all.

Getting a very authentic looking email from Amazon (not), saying there is a problem with my recent purchase processing the credit card information on file, and to follow this link etc.

The fact I haven't bought anything on Amazon for a while made me suspicious, and also looking at the senders email address gave it away.

The email even had ads in it with offers all Amazon related. Very well done.

Same here.

Is it a global warming thing? I don't ever remember the wind being so prevalent 10 years ago. Yes, occasional bad days, but at least here it is pretty much 365 days a year now.

I woke at 5am and did three hours work because you need to hustle.

At 6am I meditated for two hours because mental health is important.

At 7am I harvested wild berries for my breakfast because you are what you eat and this race car needs the best fuel.

At 8am I ran a double marathon because a healthy body means a healthy mind.

By 9am I'd signed two contacts with four of the world's largest companies.

At 10am I bought myself a new Ferrari as a reward.

Spot on.

Add to that the myriad of stories that didn't happen, the copied post about letting your staff work in a garage or something, the story about seeing a homeless crackhead on the street who's now your CEO, the endless polls about whether you want to work from home or the office and that weird he/her she/him pronoun thing - dude, your profile pic is of a bloke with a ******* great lumberjack beard. If I was going to refer to you in a post (which I'm not as LinkedIn is purely about me), I reckon I could pretty easily Guess you're a bloke.

Moved in to a new gaff 2 months ago, almost to the day.
The house is 2-3 years old.
Noticed water in the front yard - checked each sector in the house, turned off all the water, meter still spinning....figured it's somewhere between the street and the house (logical - that's where it's wet).

Will need destroying stuff and digging to fix :grrr:

Vendy 08-04-2022 11:51 PM

Just had my smart meter relinked after 18 months. Finding out my 14 month old fridge freezer has been burning 90 to £1 a day making or not making ******* ice

It looks like it warms everything up a bit to tip the ice cubes out wtf does it even if the buckets full.

Not only that but the finer frozen stuff ends up in clumps where water crystallizes

Martin H 09-04-2022 01:21 AM

Bit gutted. My nephew visited last Sunday day and topic of water leaks cropped up. I explained that we hadn’t had a leak but I had screwed up and drenched a chunk of the the kitchen ceiling a few years back. We have one of those waterfall taps over a ‘bowl sink’ in our en-suite with a joystick like tap. It has got a bit stiffer since install and if you don’t get it central it won’t push right to the top. The water will keep running but so slowly that it eventually runs back under the horizontal waterfall bit and onto the worktop, missing the sink/bowl thingy. Weird but true. If you don’t notice it would soon flow onto the floor, through the ceiling and drips from the light fittings in the kitchen.

So done it just the once and last time was 2 years ago and mentioned it on Sunday for first time to family ……. Did it again yesterday! No words……., well none that are repeatable.

I hate shopping, but usually do one big online shop a month, despite their constant **** ups, Tesco represent good value, you get more for your money.

I used to do Sainsbury's, about £100 (As delivery is free) but during first lockdown loadsa stuff missing and no replacements, which meant I had to go to the bleedin store anyway which kinda defeated the object!

As a shopping aside, I did venture to Aldi in Nantwich the other week, got a basket under £20

It's a shame the budget supermarket's don't deliver.

I do use Amazon and have paypal (don't really use it, but they gave me £5 for shits and giggles the other day)

I really think those who try to defraud this way should get either a) sued by the company for ££££'s or b) banged up for 5 years.

I know there are gullible ***** out there who fall for it, but even so..

I'm annoyed at myself for wanting the wankers to win today.

I feel dirty

gold76 09-04-2022 01:37 PM

Same, but actually worse as I chucked a free bet on them.

Can you imagine that, wanting the wankers to win and betting on them?

I'm double dirty

Yep. Wifey virtually lives on Facebook. Last week she saw a post offering a liquidation sale of Dyson hairdryers for £2 so decided it was a good bargain and bought one. Within five minutes we had Tesco Bank on the phone querying a fraudulent activity and wanting to cancel our cards. I don't know who I was more annoyed at.

When fixtures are changed to a Sunday and the game is not on the TV.

Surely the fact that a £330 hairdryer was being sold for £2 should have been a bit of a clue? :D

Hope she then got the hairdryer from you - for free.

According to idiots at the BBC “the birth” of a wild sea eagle has been caught on camera for the first time.

Since when have eagles given birth?

Usually in SUVs.
Because the drivers of those things possess absolutely no spatial awareness and/or are inconsiderate c*nts.

Yep. I have serious doubts out next week's semi final as well. TV here didn't show our Monday nighter vs M City, and there weren't any other games on in the big leagues. Found a slot for Watford Leeds, though. bielsa has gone you argie bell-ends.

A fair few have posted up their good news on here.

That results of other teams never seem to go the way I want. Newcastle gos on a run and saves themselves. Wankers can’t even beat Everton and even the Arse lost to the Carrier bags. Still small mercy with Leeds thumping Twatford but even then I feel for Roy.

Stellavista 09-04-2022 08:47 PM

Idiots reviewing expensive burger joints, commenting that all the toppings and milkshake additions are free.
You f*cking mugs.

Offers like that usually turn out to be hot air.

There's a programme on the BBC (iPlayer) where they have apparently hacked into a scammer call center in India, and can hear/see the calls being made. Makes my blood boil, especially when the victims are elderly, and the scammers know this :veryangry

On youtube there are clips of people who hack the scammers and delete their files. Entertaining viewing when the ***** realise they have been ****ed back,

What do we want in a football rivalry match. Drama. Bitterness. Gloating. Gamesmanship. Edge.
What do we get with the latest hyped Liverpool/Man City media wankfest? 'we are great rivals but also we are also great friends and respect each other', 'its like two heavyweight professional boxers in a classic bout', 'whatever happens, football is the winner today' alongside endless pictures of the opposing players and managers hugging and laughing with each other.
BORING WANKY SHIT

Sainsburys Red Chillies and their inpredictabilty. One week they'll be no hotter than a standard bell pepper and no matter how many you through in a dish you won't feel them. The following week you'll throw the same amount as the week before and they'll be fierce. I'm fine with that but the mrs, not so much

Doesn't make you popular if you grope their ladygarden after chopping them either.

Now I appreciate the English language is a pain in the butt to learn, in fact despite speaking it (allegedly) for some 65 years, I’m still learning new words and corrected pronunciations, but this morning I thought I would teach myself the Spanish word for “Windy” so I could impress the cleaning lady who is coming today and is from El Salvador (I should add that it is very windy and preventing me from going out riding my bike which I usually do when she is here to get out the way… I digress). Anyway, the word is apparently “Ventoso” (male) or “Ventosa” (female). What makes wind male or female is probably another whole post! CT_Palace explained it to me once, but it obviously didn’t stick… much like the word Ventoso won’t.

Having said all that, I thought maybe I should tell her it’s “Too windy” rather than just “Windy”, so I look it up. What the hell, the word “Too” is some bloody 5 or 6 syllable word that I can’t begin to learn before she gets here “demasiado”.

Her English is very good… maybe I should just tell her it’s too windy to ride my bike… I think she’ll understand. Usually when I try new Spanish words out on her, she looks at me blank – I end up saying it in English and she says a knowing “Ah” and corrects me with a word that sounds nothing like the word I’ve just attempted to learn!

Old dog and new tricks comes to mind…

Can I suggest: hay mucho viento
(Pronunciation help - hay is pronounced like "eye" and dont do the gringo thing and pronounce the o's as "oh" - the correct pronunciation is the same as the o in orange.)

Well yes... thanks. I saw some of that when I was looking it up.

She just arrived, and seemed to understand me, but also said another word which I didn't catch while doing that "so so" hand gesture.

(Bloody something about "bloody idiot")

P.S. Sorry I called you CT_Eagle... See I can't even get my English sorted out :eek:

CT_Palace 12-04-2022 06:13 PM

Oh.. and the ventoso or ventosa bit depends on what is windy... in your example - "the day is windy" it's the day that is windy and day is a masculine word - el dia - so the windy bit needs to be masculine as well: El dia esta ventoso . Whereas if you were describing say, the mountain is windy, mountain is feminine so windy needs to be feminine too: La montaña es ventosa.

The eagle eyed might notice why "is" is esta in the first example and es in the second, but it's probably best if we dont go there today.

Hedgehog 12-04-2022 06:23 PM

^ Probably for the best. :D
