Croydon Fcukin Council - yet again. Bunch of arsehole bullies.

Now sending me out another new demand for my old address - to my new address! - and demanding why had I cancelled the Direct Debit? Because my bank has already had to recover a payment you took wrongly, you cunts.

A second re-bill has now arrived, threatening "further action" if I do not pay. Wankers. Told them their fortune via e-mail, got an automated reply telling me they are busy and could take 4 weeks to reply, despite threatening "further action" before then. Double wankers.

How I wish I really had a solicitor! I really don't need this.

Selhurst Celtic 24-04-2020 02:08 PM

Try not to worry about it, davech. A lot of this will be automated processes with barely any human interaction. Just ignore it.
I got a letter threatening bailiffs coming to my door for a parking ticket I'm disputing the other day. It's electronic threatening rubbish which I ignore. Nobody is going to turn up, it's all bollocks.
For your state of mind, do the same, sir. Log what you've done & forget about it for now.

Oh, it's well documented, SC.

Trouble is, they model themselves on the USA system of shoot first and ask questions later, under the claim the law is on their side, regardless. I have been on the wrong end of their incompetence before. This time, when the Coronavirus problems are over, I am going for them

Fair enough you find the phrase annoying. It just made me think about when I use and greetings in general.

I see ‘Take Care’ as an affectation that doesn't literally mean the words but is a formal way of saying goodbye. Much in the same way I would say ‘how are you’
If I say take care, it means I actually give a shit about the person Im saying goodbye to, it’s not a request but a expression of affection. I also think it’s just an english expression. When anyone asks me ‘how are you’ 9 times out of 10 I will automatically say ‘not bad’. Greetings are fairly automatic I think. The subtext is more important than the words themselves ie we are doing a hello process, now we are doing a goodbye process. This happens alot and the scale of it depends on how well we know the person and also how quick we need the exchange. It’s a metaphorical ‘handshake’ without it we would be almost robotic.

I find the recent trend of ‘stay safe’ tacky as hell and seems smarmy, self-virtuous patronising; which you may see the same as ‘take care’ that’s why this thread exists, everything is annoying to someone somewhere. Though I think people would use it more widely to everyone.

You’re probably right about ‘Take care’ but it annoys me nevertheless. Getting annoyed by something isn’t necessarily logical, I guess.

You are well within your rights to get annoyed as I said in my post. I want to reserve the right to get annoyed at people saying ‘get’ inside of ‘have’ for example

That reminds me, when I returned to my car in a half empty supermarket car park last week, there was an identical car parked beside mine.

I assumed the driver did it as a little joke, but now you’ve said this, maybe that car moved itself there afterwards?

They did look like twins, created on the same production line.

‘My bad’
‘On point’
‘Rocked up’

Wayne Andrews is God 25-04-2020 11:40 PM

As mentioned above illogical and very personal thing to get annoyed at stuff.

It annoys me everyone calling it ‘lockdown’ even though our government has never referred to the current guidelines and restrictions as such and have been very careful to not call it that. It’s a media phrase. Seeing as it’s an English term, no other country has called it that. It was Quarantine in Lombardy at first but quickly became ‘lockdown’ in the press. I guess like ‘brexit’ it is a buzzterm that sticks.

I am annoyed by that in normal times. Although I shop with the wife sometimes, I tend to wander off and meet her at cashier.

I used to hate couple shopping in the UK. Acting is if they owned the store, because the were cocooned in their coupling.

Not sure but maybe over here 'quarantine' is considered more associated with animals?

Then some people in New Cross and Bermondsey are in Quarantine.

On that note:

People who insist on parking front ways in a bay.

Almost always leads to bent parking, takes longer and makes it harder to get out.

People still saying “Really?” in that silly, over-emphasised way, still need to be rounded-up.....along with adults that say “Pardon” in a child-like voice. It sort of sounds like “padden”
There are still pockets of over-users of “literally” too.

People, typically tradespeople who don’t LISTEN. Ie I want the radiator there so they put it somewhere else as it’s easier or I want a door that seals so the build what again is easier. Also the ******* easy route NOT what I ask for and we have to get them back to do it all again. It’s like dealing with my son.

Lazy and doublespeak in action showing that people have limited verbal power, or that they think they sound cute, which it doesn’t. It’s baby talk to me, just like ‘my bad’

‘You mean before a Covid caused a pandemic?’

It is not legal here, but it has been decriminalised.

We have an integrated freezer and the door alignment seems to have just suddenly wandered off of its own accord so now the door won't shut (first noticed on Friday night when I'd had a few and thought it was just one of those things that seems to happen when you're a bit drunk).
The hinges are big complicated things and I can't see any means of adjustment.
Sorry it's a bit boring but it's really annoyed me.

I don't think it's boring at all mate, I had something similar when I had an integrated fridge. I figured it was caused by having too much milk weighing down the door, I removed that and adjusted the hinges. I reckon there might be some guidance on YouTube. Worth a go anyway.
