The inability of Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Powerpoint to talk to each other intelligently.



I will add that there is probably a way to copy a sheet from Powerpoint in to Excel which doesn't **** up the formatting or make the font look like it's an old CEEFAX page, but I can't work it out. And that's the issue. I cant be the first person who wants to do this. Why isn't it just an easy button/command? Microsoft is just so shit at software.

gazcon 21-09-2015 11:49 PM

Just been reminded of one that really grinds my gears.

Completely unnecessary, unhelpful use of generic terminology.

It seems to have started with estate agents and the police, and they're still the worst offenders, but it's spreading.

So we have police talking about "a male seen in the vicinity". Male what? Giraffe? Hamster? There's a specific word for male humans, it's "man".

Or estate agents talking about a "desirable property". Is it a house, flat, beach hut? Why deliberately withhold information?

Or police again appealing for information about a "vehicle". Do they mean car, truck, unicycle? Why deliberately make your meaning less clear?

I suspect it's some kind of wrong-headed extension of business speak. They think it sounds more professional to say "the male arrived in a vehicle and entered the property". No doubt they have been on many training courses to sound so artificially asinine.

The rest of us would say "the man got out of the car and entered the house". And people would have a much better picture of what we were trying to communicate.

Rant over.

Getting to the station and realising suit jacket and trousers are from different suits. That was pretty annoying.

But not quite as annoying as going home to rectify, your wife phoning asking you to do something at home and you consequently forgetting why you went home in the first place, going back to the station and then realising your suit jacket and suit trousers still don't match.

I may be in the minority but I actually enjoy being curt with these people to the point I almost hope that they approach me. As the Blur song goes, it gives me a sense of enormous wellbeing.

What? He said he loves not indicating right until the last minute to annoy the people behind him, as he implied they shouldn't be in the right hand lane.

I asked does he do that even people are legitimately allowed in the right hand lane (i.e. if it's for straight on and right)

People who think they have the right to just pull out at a junction without stopping when I'm already on that main road about to turn right onto my drive.

Also when coming from the other direction past the junction - I have to go past and onto my drive at 20 mph to stop them pulling out and hitting me. They are too busy looking for any car behind me to look at what I'm actually doing.

And yes, I do signal (for all the good it does).

The use of the words "thank you for reaching out" by support personnel, like you're some kind of disciple to their ****ed-up cult.

If I want to get something out of a high cupboard, I might well "reach out". If I want to stop a bus, I might "reach out". If I want to catch a ball that's going over my head, I might "reach out".

Wanting to know the identity of my account manager is asking a simple question, not ******* "reaching out" in any shape or form. So shut the **** up.

I don't care about catching a cold off a stranger in a pub, I just don't want to listen to it. I repeatedly heaved into my pint well after he'd smoked his cigarette and moved back into the pub. It was gross and nasty. Even now I can feel my stomach starting to turn.

I'm paying for all those ebay collection trips tonight. Going for a soak in the bath i think. Theworst thing is i only did a third of a room, and it was the easy bit. Just going to do a bit each day, my knees cant handle more than 3 hours crawling about before work.
