Not quite in the 'things that make me happy' area but I don't mind working Bank Holidays, avoiding the crowds and staying out of the often miserable weather has its advantages!

simon 09-05-2023 01:21 PM

On Sunday we had a burst pipe. Manage to turn water off quite quickly so not much damage really, but it still needed fixing. So I rang the insurance company...

Me: Hello, I have a burst water pipe
Company: You have home emergency cover, so that's fine. Where is the leak?
Me: We can't see it, must be under some floorboards.
Company: Ah, that means that investigative work will be required, and under clause 17.1 of the Home Emergency policy you aren't covered for that.
Me: What?!
Company: But you are covered for that under your Home Insurance policy.
Me: Great!
Company: But because of the bank holiday they are closed until Tuesday.
Me: You're joking.
Company: There is an online chat you can use on the website.
Me: And they can get it sort out a plumber before Tuesday?
Company: No.

I didn't swear, remembering it's not the person on the phone's fault, but I was very close. You can't slam a mobile down, but I did my best. My wife said I was sounding very passive aggressive!

A local plumber came and sorted it fairly quickly for £150. Now I can't be bothered to claim as we have a £75 excess.

I won't reel the stories off again but I genuinely hate the way insurance companies operate. I rarely use the word hate about anything but every experience I have had with insurance has ranged from disappointing, through every shade of rubbish to downright dishonest. If I thought I had enough years left to live and enough cash to waste I would sue the **** off our house insurer. Even the structure of the industry is designed to avoid paying out to the customer and to make it a nightmare to navigate.

Toilet paper and toilet paper holders in Premier Inns.

They are either packed so tightly that you can't get them out, so you have to dig them out. They are wafer thin, tiny squares that are released singularly, so you need several at once.

Inevitably, you run out cos you use so many.

Mrs IOW

This morning the 10 year old iMAC crashed. Mrs IOW went into panic mode that "everything was lost" When asked what was lost she replied "passwords and everything" and we MUST get a new computer. I showed her the Old mac sitting quietly next to the crashed one and said she could use that. "No thats even older we need a new one it will be faster and better and that one wont have my passwords" I pointed out that a new one wouldnt have her paswrords either and that ALL her stuff was in the cloud so you didnt need a powerful machine as 100% of what she does is in the browser. "but it will make the browser run faster" So I offered a cheap PC if she really really really wanted one, but no she "wont know how to use that" at this point I left the room in exasperation as soon as the Imac had rebooted, telling her to write her passwords down so they can never be lost.

If you think dealing with a British insurer is bad, you want to try dealing with insurers in America, where insurance can be 10x+ the cost of in the UK and the tactics used to avoid paying out are ridiculous.

If someone can tell me of an insurance company that is honest and supports you I would love to move to them. Even medical. Mrs is with vitality “ I need some physio that you say I have 6 free sessions.” “No problem that will

Hot water in a cup or glass supplied in the room and a few pours from on high usually deals with any excremental problems whatever your level of distribution or stickiness to avoid any embarassment.

Pre-treatment from the shampoo or bodywash supplied in the room will usually ensure success.

Yes I travel a lot and have a fairly sensitive stomach! :p

Bipe 10-05-2023 06:43 AM

What is wrong with you snowflakes??

Just grab a handful of toilet paper, stick your hand in and wipe it off. You may need a couple of flushes / visits to complete the job.

I do about two 'solid' poos a year, the rest vary in consistency between liquid and a thick stew or curry, so dealing with residue is a regular occupational hazard.

Bog brushes are the most unhygienic things on the planet, nobody should have one. Unless you clean or replace the things after every single use you are basically storing a pool of festering shitty water in your bathroom.

The towel they leave you as a shower mat suffices. Make sure you only use one side and leave that side face down on the floor when you depart.

Not sure if ive complained about this before. I'm part of a global supply diversity task force at work, after being volunteered against my will by a senior manager, so I have to sit on zoom calls on Thursday evenings to discuss commercials and how we ensure our suppliers are diverse. I'm an engineer - I don't do commercials and have no interaction or influence over supplier selection; I have no idea what they're talking about the majority of the time. Everything is financials and acronym speak.

The problem is, I've left it too late to say something. They gave as all an award a few weeks ago for being part of this group. :moo:

Maz 11-05-2023 04:59 PM

It has to be viewed as an opportunity, Joe. A chance to influence the £numbers of a business, and £numbers are the thing that matters the most. (And diversity ia of course of increasing importance).



I think I am wearing rose-tinted specs - who wants to do Zoom meetings of any sort? - but I think that's the only good state of mind.

I am guessing your role on the group is to comment on what 'good looks like' in a fully diverse business and representing your peers. I doubt they want you to define a marketing campaign or negotiate the contract do they? Aren't they trying to engage employees through representatives in the shift to being a consciously diverse business.

The alternate is a suit does it 'top down' and then you all moan, well that's a stupid idea AND they never asked us for our opinion. It does rely on the work force engaging in it though and it doesn't sound as if they have you fully on board :)

But I bet it looks great in the annual corporate report ......

It's never too late and, personally, I'd ask loads of questions like ".. so how does that feed into our aims for diversity?"... and I always ask people what the acronyms they're using mean, if I don't know. But, while I don't care what people think about me, I do accept that doing so can cause quite a lot of resentment from people who are insecure or rely on blagging and bloviating. On the other hand, you find them out pretty quickly and anyone authentic / self-possessed enjoys those challenges. Good luck, Joe.

Indeed.

To us dago expats it was pretty obvious what "global supply diversity task force" was.

This from Martin H was a massive clue if wcb had bothered to read the other posts first 'But I bet it looks great in the annual corporate report'

I did post a little while back about little rural englanders not really having much of a grasp of the World outside their own (dis)comfort zone. Wcb said it was bollox. Case closed, me thinks.

They’re a global investment bank, although our “taskforce” is concerned only with realty. It’s incredibly shit and boring.

I guess the answer is both.

Though not as hard as short people and high shelves, which I understand is a problem globally that needs zooming in on.

Itís actually not too difficult. Just frustrating. Good game though. Iíve been trying to platinum the series on PS5. Iíve finished Demon Souls, Bloodborne, Dark Souls and Elden Ring. All that remains is DS2 and 3.

Picked up the trilogy box set from Amazon for £30. Good deal, I think.

Just tried to update my method of payment on my dartford crossing account and despite using account number and password it kept signing me out. Finally phoned and they informed me they closed the account in November due to limited use. They said an email should have been sent to say this but it wasn’t. They said I should receive a refund cheque in next few weeks which is an amazing coincidence after me phoning. Looking online it seems they have done this to a lot of others who have also not been informed or been given a refund. Almost like a government scam when the crossing is a gov.uk site. Be warned.

Just a matter of putting all that together. HTH.

Penfold loves diversity, but not so much now the little fella that seemed so bendy has grown up a bit.

Picked up the trilogy box set from Amazon for £30. Good deal, I think.

I understand that the game arc for most of those is dependent on the player constantly dying.

There was some funny animated videos based on that - and Diablo.

LOL. Sounds like they picked the right person for the Zoom call.

I could do with some extra cash - how about sub-contracting the task out to me.

Email Junk mail.

Need to hire a secretary just to check through it these days.

I wouldn’t bother but so many important emails have slipped into there.

I'm with you there. Just checked. 252 of the feckers in the last 5 days. Seems someone has matched with me each of the last 5 days running on Tinder. Never been where near the cesspit. Should be a law against it.

As you say, need to check though just in case something important has been diverted there. No real stuff there this time though.

Politicians, usually Tories, who complain about the decline of The Party, when their concern should about the decline of the country.

That should go on a thread called "Things that make you spit blood"...
... and lest we forget, Cameron enabled Brexshit for exactly that reason.

EDF energy yet again, took 1300 quid from my account today, even though I already pay them an agreed amount every month.

Adverts you find stapled in the centre pages of magazines, when you have already tipped out a load of other junk

Talking about dancing around kitchens, I hate any TV ad where consumers dance for joy because they've got a new kitchen (or mortgage offer, got telephone banking, effortlessly cleaned their bathroom til it sparkles etc).
