Going in to a McDonalds and having to stand among a bunch of tw*ts holding cooler boxes and motorcycle helmets while I wait 30 minutes for a f*cking cheeseburger because of the lazy, obese people ordering a McDonalds from their greasy armchairs.

Spanish bureaucracy, here is my experience of switching my UK/EU licence to a Spanish one. Something I didn't need to do until a bunch of blinkered, right wing ****wits voted for a Brexit. The "Kaz" in this rant is my wife.

Go to Trafico in October to sort licence as bloke Kaz employed is rubbish. Can't do mine AND kazs as we needed 2 separate appointments. Hand my licence in, hear nothing, go back in December, because useless **** employed by Kaz is a useless ****, to find out what's happening. Useless **** doesnt turn up, therefore Bureacratic shitehawks wont give me info as I need useless **** there to give permission to bureaucratic shitehawks to process application. They do tell me that some paperwork needed signing, which I signed.

Useless **** still hasn't heard anything so go to see bureaucratic shitehawks again today, this time useless **** turns up with sob story that it's his birthday and he was supposed to be out with friends. I give him a look that tells him no ****s are actually being given. Wait 1 hour until bureaucratic shitehawks decide to tell us that my licence hasn't been processed as it is missing a photo...a photo THEY have lost. They didnt attempt to inform us of this until now. Go with Useless **** to get photo. Go back to bureaucratic shitehawks and hand photo in. Make useless **** tell bureaucratic shitehawks to start process now and make me out a temporary licence. This causes much huffing and puffing and stomping from bureaucratic shitehawks. I tell them that I need a temporary licence and that they have had MY licence since October and if I got fined I Would be denouncing the whole of Trafico. Bureaucratic Shitehawks nervously laugh, as does useless ****. I assure them both that I am absolutely ******* serious. Half an hour later I emerge with temporary licence and am told that "no, they cannot mail a new licence to my po box address and it has to be collected " I assure them that this is something they must definitely CAN do as they dispatched my wife's licence in December to our p.o. box.

Leave trafico, Useless **** then decides this is a good time to discuss his fee........I will let you guess how that conversation went.

This ‘all cops are pigs’ attitude the ‘radical’ left has. I can understand not liking the police as an institution, particularly in somewhere like the US. But I’m not so keen on the Nazis either, does that mean I have to hate Oskar Schindler?

It’s just modern day politics in a nutshell, always black and white to many people. No nuance.

I sent a message to Meghan and Harry arguing that we should initiate a campaign against the riff raff using their hard earned to spend on leisure travel.

We've agreed to discuss the topic in more detail when we meet up in the Caribbean - they're a bit too busy "existing" in Canada right now.

You might just be right spikey one.

Another thing that's p!ssing me off, is customers now using WhatsApp, especially late evening and weekends, maybe because they can see when I'm 'online' and therefore available. They contact me via landline, mobile, text, email and now ******* WhatsApp, I'm expecting a carrier pigeon tapping at my window one morning.

I guess my main gripe's more about some, not all, people having no respect for out of hours contact, or even worse "Sorry to contact you on a Sunday, but" No you're not, you don't give a damn. 7:30-19:00 Monday-Friday and Saturday morning is more than enough time unless it's an emergency.

Totally agree. However, sometimes I guess people just want to get into the queue, and message you while they remember.

I’ve learned to stop looking at messages and voicemails after 6...but WhatsApp does feel intrusive because I associate it with friends, not customers.

Every so often I will find something I have never heard before, and that will take me on an amazing journey through a previously unheard porthole. And as much as I love this, I just can't help but feel sad that there is still so much I am missing.

I've always thought about this. The amount of music grows exponentially year by year. In the '50s and '60s there was a finite amount of 'modern' music which someone could, in theory, know all about. Now, when you include all the music of the past 50/60 years, that is impossible.

The hoops you have to go through when someone changes their email address.

Not blaming the person, as I'm sure they are not very happy about it... but all my devices, despite changing and deleting the old address from contacts and address books, still they insist on using the old one, and then adding the old one back into the contacts as an alternative.

Finally figured out you have to remove the old one from a recalled list which you access via the information icon and scroll the the bottom off of the screen.

I know, I know... who emails anymore? Me apparently.

Hedgehog 23-01-2020 06:54 PM

Along the same lines, and maybe this should be on the iPhone thread, the way the iPhone groups an email string together under one email.

The sequence seems somewhat hard to follow, and easy to miss an email that a person sends you in the string.

Knowing you saw something, but now it seems to have disappeared has lead to some thoughts that I'm going crazy more than once, which is probably true anyway, but that's another story.

Then you weren't listening properly. They never say Palis as we pronounce Palace.
Always phonetic in Spanish so - Palas with the A's pronounced as in hat. (although they do drop the final E, strictly spanish speaking it should be palaceh)

To be more topical to the thread title is how they pronounce Zaha that annoys me.
Not Zarhar as we say but Zaka (a as in hat remember, and that slightly guttural H that Spanish speakers use that makes it sound like a K)

Gwa-ee-ta
The gua sound has a very soft g. You've probably heard it when a Spanish speaker says "well" or "what" - there's often a soft g at the beginning. Here in Chile babies get called guaguas The sound a baby makes when crying, that sort of caricature waa-waa-waa-waa is written guagua and used as a word to mean baby. So you see the g has to be really soft to make that "waa" sound of crying, not a hard G.

guaguas - plural = babies (if that's what you meant)

And one last thing about Guaita. the "ta" at the end has no hint of an er (schwa), ar, or ah sound. It's a straight ta with the a as in hat.

Not Zarhar as we say but Zaka (a as in hat remember, and that slightly guttural H that Spanish speakers use that makes it sound like a K)

Mind you, they do a much better job with Guaita than most English commentators :D

Hmm, can't say Ive heard that.

Arabic commentators.

Only decent stream for our game I could find the other day was with an Arabic speaking commentator. Really off putting cos he never shut up. All you hear is an incessant barrage of very loud and aggressive guttural speech with an undertone of menace that quite frankly makes you a little scared. Yes the ‘war on terrorism’ has done its job.

All I could understand were the players and team names. He repeated the words ‘Crystal Palace’ every 10 seconds or so, and there was one point where he seem to list as many English football teams as he could in one minute. Lord knows what he was talking about...sorry I meant Allah knows.

It's ;like they've been told to never stop talking and come up for breath.

When you hear two people speaking Arabic it always sounds like they are coming to blows. Then you find out they were talking about how mild the weather is for this time of year.

These foreigners really need to have a volume button insterted in their vocal chords. My Greek Uncle and Auntie were like fog horns. Remember once being over their place when I was younger; my cousin had brought over his girlfriend for the first time and after a few minutes she started to look very uncomfortable and quite frankly, terrified. She said to my cousin, ‘Oh it’s terrible. Why are your parents fighting?’; he looked bemused, ‘What do you mean fighting? They’re just chatting.’

Yeah as far as stereotypes go, Hispanic women would take the loudness crown.

Costa Coffee trying to palm me off with a stale raspberry and almond bake. Try it again and I will complain to central office. It's outrageous. There were loads of cakes there, all it does is put people off buying one because they don't want to risk being given one that's stale, so for all their salvaging and penny-pinching, it's actually a false economy.

Reminds me of a Mexican takeaway place to Sutton high street a while back. They started out with great interest and long queues at lunchtime but I refused to go there as they were so needlessly stingy even items like red peppers - which cost relatively next to nothing. It closed down after a year after having so much potential

I was in Corsica during the 1996 Euros and I watched one of the France matches on the village television set which they had set up in the main square. The commentary was pathetic. It went on in a low mumble the whole time along the lines of "euh il porte maintenant les jolies euh bottes jaunes, n'est-ce pas, qu'elles sont jolies, elles, mais il semblait préferer les bleues, eh bein, je suppose parce-qu'elles aussi, elles sont assez jolies, mais je ne sais pas, euh, moi, quelles sont les plus belles. Euh, Claude, qu'est-ce que vous pensez, vous, euh, les bleues ou les jaunes? Eh? Quoi?" And so on and so on for two hours without drawing breath or saying anything.

Or perhaps ask Arabs what English speakers sound like. One once told me it was like listening to a yard full of chickens.
