Golfers that can't read distances without a digital gizmo (prompted by current view from my hotel)

GorBlimey 10-10-2021 11:25 PM

People who write Amazon reviews that are not reviewing the product but bitch about other things like the delivery.


Giving 1 star to an otherwise excellent product because the delivery driver chucked it over your fence really distorts the results and makes the reviews less relevant.

When I read reviews, particularly for hotels, the negative ones sometimes reinforce the positive.
Lots of 5 star reviews followed by someone who gives a 1 star because someone didn't smile at them or because a meal wasn't served how it is at home. Easy to disregard and focus on the reasonable.

Yes, hotel/restaurant reviews are some of the worst.



They give a 1* because they had to wait longer than they expected for their food. Well go to McDonalds if fast food is what you want!!

Happens on book reviews too - review the book not the delivery process.

Im annoyed by people finding a problem then blaming the wrong thing.

Eg above the problem is 100% amazon, for not having separate stars for product quality and vendor performance. And its probably deliberate.

To be fair I sort of blame the 5 star rating system. I wish sites like Trip Advisor would let you write a review without the rating.

I've stayed at a couple of very nice places this year (sorry PeterH), and both were exceptional, but both had very minor things that you could nitpick about and in my mind would prevent them being given 5 stars which would indicate perfection.

The reverse of this is people do nitpick and give 1 or 2 stars for that very reason.

Personally if I go somewhere, it is clean, the people working their are courteous and professional and have a smile on their face, and the location is everything that is advertised... I'm happy, and can look past a few areas that are opportunities for improvement as they say these days.

I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express a few years ago, that was pretty new. Very clean (as in new), people working there were great, and breakfast buffet was fine, close to the airport, but... there was a bloody freeway going by right outside the window - noise all night. How would you rate that?

People who go all deep after a couple of cocktails and decide they have to ask everyone " so tell me, where do you see yourself in five years time?"
" Probably talking shite on the BBS," is not the sort of answer these amateur psychologists desire. It doesn't quite fascinate them as much as when someone says they'll probably be investing in real estate on the moon or putting the finishing touches to their ninth novel about toxic emissions from the dairy farm.

Itís just a way of looking at a series of bad things happening in a short space of time, almost a positive way of looking at it to say it was a turn of fate rather than perpetual doom. Also the universe is odd things/matter seem to gravitate together like buses. Ive certainly had times where bad things have all happened at once rather over a longer period, yes we pattern spot but I still think things gravitate together to a certain degree.

A review without a rating cant be put into a data set. Each review would be in isolation rather than en masse to give an overall rating. How do you sort reviews? If you just read the latest you could get a wrong idea of the picture. The rating is there for those who want to quickly scan and find the highlights and lowlights. Even a 3 star review can stick out for it’s balanced opinion. The 3 stars would probably stick out as most probably put 5 or 1.

I think you can rate your hotel by the freeway, as it affected the experience of the hotel so it is a negative that should be considered. Surely you just knock back the stars? Wouldnt the hotel have been better if it wasnt by a freeway?

To expand:
It’s a verbal/literal handshake this sort of greeting, there is a name for it I cant remember but it’s purpose is just to show care and respect, just as when someone says ‘how you doing’ it can be uncalled for to answer with a full depressing tale, it would be about reading the social situation and relationship with the person. It irritates me when people say “oh people say ‘how are you’ and dont mean it, what a horrible world we live in, people have no time’ etc, the statement has a purpose, it’s a pleasantry, a verbal handshake to begin real conversation.

There are quite a few people who write "we're" instead of "we'll" as in "we'll be there at......", these clowns say "we're be there at.....".

Worse than that i think are the fkwits who mix up "bought" and "brought".

THIS

Just gives obnoxious arseholes the chance to splurt absolute bollox without being brave enough to take any critique on what they write.

Usually applies a lot to football journalists that have been made to cry a couple of times. Which is why we have to rely on one of our own - SP, for example - to take them to task publicly.

Do you both want your arses handed to you again on here...

I wouldn't poke this particular stick, or I will make you both have gammony tantrums again.


There is the little warning for you. Up to you both if you are stupid enough not to heed it.

I think I have covered myself for Les, and the little band of happy BBSers that worry about nastiness..

:vader:


F*ck me, your're a complete and utter wanker.


You should be ashamed of yourself - a supposedly grown man! :jerkit:

I played there about the same time and that was about my level:p

Thought I'd progress and bought a set of clubs. Didn't happen. The clubs are a museum piece still in the attic:)

Was I physically threatening you?

You and Gor Blimey decided to jump on one of my posts as retribution for my past sins against you both - and reopen the squabble - true or not?

It's simple, do you want to continue - or should we leave it for now?

They would have to be small piercings. About the same size Bimbo has in his brain.

"Wight Flight"


You can't even f*cking spell and you teach English! :D

PeterH 14-10-2021 07:13 PM

My wife throwing stuff about.

We had the grandkids for the weekend, well until Tuesday.

Yesterday, she had a day in bed to recover. LOL. I did all the jobs, cooked, washed up, garden, animals, served her various things in bed. Plus, took 5 classes.

She told me tht she was rising early today ready to go..

Again, I had classes, walked the dogs, did gardening, some shopping etc.. She has decided to do some spring cleaning, but it is not without fecking tantrums.

I think she needs professional help.

Here's me, walking on eggshells again.

Doesn't help that our daughter is having relationship problems, one son seems to be slipping into alcoholism, and the other is back on the coke. They are mid 30s FFS.

You don't live in England so your "White Flight" has been a lot further than mine and in any event, it's racist terminology so a further poor show from you.

How is it racist terminology?

I really want to ask 'which part?' I know it makes no sense and I am sure it will be against some sort of rule but it's so tempting...... Nah, can't do it.

Yep. A fairly high % here class themselves as 'original peoples'. Although the vast majority are really mixed.

The tales of the extinct or just about extinct tribes from Tierra Del Fuego are interesting and very sad. The Scots (and other Brits - but mainly Scots) used to get paid to bounty hunt their heads. Sheep farming, init. Same as Australia and New Zealand I imagine. The Yagan and Selkirk peoples. A few of them were taken to the UK as a curiosity in Victorian times. One of them was called Mr Button. He had a bit of a life of it, and when he returned he took off his clothes and went back to his former lifestyle.

The existing peoples include Rapa Nui, Atacama, Aymara, and the largest group the Mapuche - the later have their great war leader Lautaro as the club badge of Colo Colo - the most popular football team here.

It's hard to tell, but I would suggest that as many as 50% of people identify in some way with Mapuche culture and heritage.

There is a great issue here n the South. Indigenous land protests have become mixed up with terrorism, and a lot of it covers up narcos. There are people with farms or cabins in the area that end up getting burnt alive.

Usually it is very difficult to understand the real picture. It is very difficult not to be affected by bias on the issue.

Anyhoo, my wife is part Indian on her mother's side. The same as Gor Blimey is part gammon on whichever side you look.

The part that might cut out my heart and eat it if I don't let her have her temper tantrums in peace.

I am going to test the waters..

Using the word "white" is inherently racist to describe people leaving an area.

It implies that people are moving on for racial reasons rather than simply wanting to live somewhere else.

Then you compound it with the pathetic excuse that you can't be racist because you married a "part Indian".

Annoying.
