I have a beef. When someone phones me I answer it, even though I may be dishing or eating dinner. I accept that sometimes it's a pain. The trend now seems to be for people to ignore your call to them, often when they call straight back after the have decided whether they want to speak to you now. Piss off and just answer the bloody phone!

Sorry, I'm a complete 180 to this.

Far too many soliciting calls (not so many at this time) to pick up the phone. We have caller ID, and if it is someone programmed in the phone and their name pops up or I recognize the number that's different. Otherwise if it's important they can leave a message and we will get back to you, or will pick up while you are leaving the message if it is a friend/relative/doctors office.

Scam calls etc. We went through a period where we would get several scam calls per day. All sorts. Posing as Microsoft, BT, Credit Card companies, surveys. Less frequent but perhaps more dangerous now. Early on I used to play on and keep them occupied playing the dumb user but for ages now I just ask who is calling and say, no you are not, are you? You are just a fraud/scammer.... rarely get past that. Occasional expletives from them but typically phone goes down. One in particular did spend some time explaining why he thought I should go and commit incest. But he did think I had just transferred £50k to him.Also got a lot of the automated calls too and a spate of ones where they leave a message re your bank and then hold the line open. The idea being that you dial and then they pretend to answer. Sophisticated these days, replicating dial tone and so on. B******!

We have always been a bit paranoid re these things having been close to the topic for a while at work but I do think the odds are heavily in their favour and over time itís inevitable that you get caught out eventually with this or computer virus. Especially as you get older and there is nothing they like more than a confused person answering the call. Having watched all of our parents lose their sharpness as they moved into their final years itís easy to see why they are so successful.

Anyway scam calls are really annoying.

I often do the exactly the same as your sister. It was that which provoked their incest suggestion. Nice chap.

Supposedly bigger earner than the drugs trade these days (find that hard to believe still but could believe that it's more profitable per £/$ invested). Huge call centres outbound calling from Asia and there was one in the UK that was shut down a few years back. What a great job/career, ripping off the old, infirm and confused/vulnerable in the community from a Call Centre. Sadly there is money in it and I doubt they find it hard to staff them. Some of those earn more working from home ads were exposed as doing the same. Dismal

I always tell scam callers that I would be delighted to chat with them, as soon as they have confirmed their identity by stating the 1st, 3rd & 7th characters of their password....

Either that or I tell them that the person theyíre after has just popped to the moon & would they mind hanging on the line until they return.

What has a proclivity to 'Raise my hackles' is being in a queue waiting to purchase my goods when someone having completed their transaction engages in a lengthy conversation with the store worker pertaining to events in their life, the weather, flowers, birds etc etc totally oblivious to the fact there are customers waiting to be served.:wallbash:

The 'Culprits' tend to be of somewhat advanced age and perhaps loneliness is a factor but my word I find it rather galling. I do recall occasions where I have reminded the lady or gentleman that there is actually a queue of persons waiting to be served.

Perhaps I am just an impatient and irascible old chap who is certainly no lighthouse of joy and my 'Good lady wife' often categorizes me as such.

Dear Paulinmorden

For avoidance of doubt, there was not a single occurrence of this behaviour that I encountered.

I have a recollection of a chap, who was a manager of a Building Society, laying his coins on the counter, and was far from impecunious probably on account of the fact that he was 'Tighter' than a camel's posterior in a sandstorm.
I have not had such experiences in recent times.

If your good lady wife engages in protracted conversations at the head of a queue, I will be charitable and make the assumption that your 'better half' is over-freighted with gaiety and friendliness.

When after the break they spend the first two minutes going over what you had just seen in the ten minutes between commercials. I know half the world claim to have ADD but give the viewer the benefit of the doubt. Maybe his or her brain hasn't been frazzled by years of alcohol and class A abuse and they can remember what happened five minutes before the ads.

Getting half way through the last season of Grimm on Netflix and then seeing they have removed it.

Also Netflix here not having the first two seasons of Line of Duty and starting at season three.

Both of those situations are just crap.

Dearest Charles,

Your good lady wife would fit in very well in our small village here in Southern Spain. This behaviour is all too common amongst the senoras in the tienda de pan and farmacias. They also enjoy aspying that a fila is forming in the shop, this ensures they start to ask for items they have "forgotten" during their slow amble around the shelves.

During the pandemiic this behaviour has become even more common, especially as small tiendas are limiting entrance to just dos clientes at a time, therefore ensuring a larger queue to inconvenience.

If you also factor in the Spanish dislike of having to queue for anything, this makes for some lively encounters whilst out and about.

I can reveal that my good lady wife has a proclivity to engage in protracted chinwags with all and sundry and has been 'true to form' when we have visited good old EspaŮa. If I wished to be uncharitable I would refer to her as a 'Blatherskite'.

I have witnessed her veering into conversation totally unrelated to the sale in a 'Panaderia', 'Pharmacia' and 'Supermercado' and I have had to remind her to jolly well get a move on as a queue has formed and those in it might be hyperventilating as I would be in similar circumstances. Not a shred of awareness of those waiting to be served.
As I have articulated, I have been in such a queue behind some lady or gentleman chirping like a cloud of grasshoppers after completing their transaction and my patience has been at a premium.

Maidstoned Eagle 26-05-2020 11:03 AM

"Blatherskite"? Like that one.

Trolley 26-05-2020 11:40 AM

I can provide another example of my good lady wife raising my hackles.

We avail of a cafe or restaurant and peruse the menu.My good self makes a decision in some haste as to what I wish to consume whereas she will vacillate, fluctuate between the options giving one a running commentary and generally 'Whiffle waffling' for seemingly a lengthy period of time whilst I sit there a seething, hungry hombre.

Having finally reached a decision we call for the waiter/waitress to place our order and in mid-order my good lady wife has a change of mind with her original choice having to be deleted and being replaced by an alternative. This situation has occurred on several occasions much to my chagrin. Exceedingly infuriating :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

My patience is once more in short supply when I happen to be in the unfortunate position of driving behind a vehicle that is progressing at a speed well below the speed limit with an open road in front of it.

My good self fully accepts that some commercial vehicles (Tractors etc) can only drive at a reduced speed, however last week on 'Tandridge Lane' there was a vehicle directly in front being driven by a lady of somewhat advanced age.
The vehicle was progressing at a speed of under 30 MPH in a 50 MPH limit, grinding on akin to a giant armadillo on hazardous terrain, when there was NOT a vehicle in sight directly ahead of it and being a narrow winding road and approaching vehicles it just wasn't possible for me to pass it and this situation continued for a few miles.

I am definitely not in the flush of youth and I am not a chappie who emulates a high-speed race at 'Brands Hatch' but whilst I am no slouch behind the wheel of a vehicle I do observe the speed limits and drive at the limit when it is safe to do so.
I was in a hissy-fit and I have experienced this on more than one occasion at different locations.:wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

Hmmm. Praps so.


But you don't often hear me complain about the modding of this place, but whichever mod allowed the resurgence of this excrescence really needs to be taken off duty for a while.

Parking of delivery drivers.
They just show up, block the road, park 5m from the curb and wonder why residents get pissed off.
You’d think driving all day would improve their parking skills.

My wife does that, not a delivery driver though.

My annoyance has grown over the weeks...
Freeview channel 11 @ 1800 - Star Trek, the next generation title sequence.
The view of a large planet with rings like Saturn pans slowly across the screen, the camera heads to the left and the USS Enterprise glides serenely into view and moves from left to right.
It should pass in front of the ringed planet but that has now disappeared, nowhere to be seen.
Flipping annoying.

Have you been isolated the whole 9 weeks ?

I love sci fi movies, but in every one I’ve ever seen, when space ships take off from a planet they go up for a bit then level off and go right or left. They never keep going up (or down). Does space stop if you keep heading up or down?

Sharkba1t 27-05-2020 07:53 AM

The new Lloyd’s bank ad where people are talking about mental health. I worked for Lloyds for a couple of years, and they don’t give 2 effs about mental health, particularly their own staff. Constantly re structuring various depts, in order to reduce staff numbers.

An anti Purley thing maybe ?

Trolley 27-05-2020 09:42 AM

One cannot watch the television without hearing the "C" word (Coronavirus/Covid-19),"Lockdown" or "Social Distancing" being uttered seemingly every few minutes.
One fully appreciates that we are in the midst of a "National Emergency" but from a personal point of view my good self is "Sick to the back teeth" of hearing these words.:wallbash::wallbash: Only the other day I was in a supermarket queue and I heard a chap, somewhat advanced in years, express similar sentiments.:wallbash::wallbash:

Is Trolley being operated by WCB?

I switched a Windows computer on 50 minutes ago. It still hasn't finished booting up FFS.

Unless it's f*cking about with a major update install, just re-boot it.

People who feed pigeons and seagulls (stands by for jokes on the latter)

Seagulls are evil feckers - and I'm not talking about our south coast chums.

They seem to have lost any fear of humans.

Prime candidates for a shotgun resolution.

Hedgehog 28-05-2020 11:40 PM

You can add Hummingbirds to the list... nasty evil little feckers... I'm sure one is going to poke my eye out one day. I've had them hover in front of my face before. There infighting between themselves is something to behold.

Banks really seem to be dialling up the self importance in their ads these days, especially Lloydís. Barclays declaring themselves responsible for educating people on how to use computers responsibly. Just about all of them making out like they are a cornerstone of the community and here to help.

Youíre just a ******* bank, no one cares

Who the f*ck figured that endless documentaries about hospitals would be just what the doctor ordered at this particular time?
