I once pulled up at a cash machine in Brixton where my mate got out to use it. Then a bloke who had just got his cash got in the back of my car instead of the one in front. We sat there looking at each other both thinking WTF?? Was that you?

I was ******* annoyed last night. Chopping some hot chilli for a curry and a seed from one popped up and landed in my eye as I blinked it went straight under my eyelid.

Chocky 23-10-2015 06:19 PM

It's just as bad down your Japanese eye but don't ask.

I did something similar except I trotted across the bonnet.

I did get in a car which stopped at a bus stop.

I can't believe I got away with some of the strokes I pulled as a youngster.

I remember ... it's those single lever mixer taps in hotels. I can never remember whether to turn it towards hot or turn it so 'hot' is facing forward. It'd be ok if it actually changed straight away but they seem to take an age before you know whether you've pushed it the right way. And for some reason, brushing my teeth in tepid water disgusts me.

Inconsistent curry houses. Had a blinder last week. Ordered the same tonight and it was piss poor. Tempted to curl one out in to the container and post it through their door with a polite letter of complaint.

After a rather drunken conference experience, my poor hungover self left my case on a train and I was pretty amazed that I got it back.

This was back in the 90's but I guess it would be worth checking out all the lost property options.

The phrase 'no problem'.

Especially when one has a meal. 'May I have the fish and chips please? ' no problem
some tom sauce? no problem
can I pay the bill? no problem

Well I don't expect there to be a fecking problem and if there is then you can fecking sort it out. Just 'certainly sir' or somesuch will do.

That actually annoys you? Someone dies, respect is shown by people who have an association with them, and that annoys you.

It's Halloween decorations at work put up the first week in October... If ever there is a more stupid, worthless, consumer driven event/holiday (well Valentines I guess) I don't know what.

What is the point of Halloween decorations all over your cubical??? Some of these people are scary enough 52 weeks a year, they don't need any help. :eek:

This hasn't bugged me before, but I now see what you mean.

In a restaurant recently a young waiter took our drinks order, and every item was met with 'no problem'.

I so nearly said, good, I don't expect a simple request from your drinks list to be 'a problem' to be honest!

It's not clear from the website what the individual "taxes, fees and ticketing" charges actually are. Nevertheless, BA chose to operate out of Heathrow, therefore I would say they have a big say in what "taxes, fees and ticketing" charges are actually levied. And to be honest, I don't care. I expect to get my flights for next to nothing when using my airmiles - that's the whole point of them. BA should be covering those taxes (or whatever) within the airmile price. It's a disgraceful rip-off.

Mrs CT flies to Santiago tomorrow with LAN using my BA airmiles for $25.

Tax from Heathrow would be about 120 pp the rest is simply profiteering by BA. Starting to build up star alliance miles as at least you can use them.

In fairness the tax imposed on flights is hardly BA's fault.

I use my airmiles to book hotels in expensive citiies: Venice, New York etc always seems more of a saving

If it was just taxes then fair enough but BA seem to add a service charge a booking charge and then some other charge way above the airport tax. I've used mine for car hire a couple of times but flights are a waste of time

Completely agree - he's gone and no matter how many people say 'but and if' it isn't going to bring him back.

You haven't worked out the best way to use them then.

And that would be, given that I need to get to London?

I want to use my hundreds of thousands of BA airmiles to fly on a BA flight to London and back without paying any costs. Like they should be used for, and are used for if I fly anywhere else on a partner airline. But I can't, BA want to charge me $700 for the pleasure. Why can't I pay for these ridiculously exorbitant costs with my airmiles too?

You should never have moved to America then. You should've stayed at home and watched a load of John Johns fighting outside KFC every day.

Just to show AA can be A'holes also, my wife has 16,700 miles that are going to go away just after Christmas, 16,700 miles will not even get you one night in a Motel 6, so I inquired about selling them to me, as I still accumulate miles.

You can do it using the Sharemiles program which tells me to transfer the miles to me would cost $200!

I guess I will just let them expire, as I don't see them being worth $200. :(

Because it's a tax and BA have to pay it to the taxing authorities in cold hard cash. Miles don't cost them a fraction of the perceived value to redeem.

Newsnight, never been an avid watcher but when floating the channels of an evening I usually end up with it on a few times a week, Evan Davis is possibly the most annoying person on tv, haven't watched it for a while since he took over and caught a bit last night and he was again complete dogshit, my 5 year old could interview people better. Stick him on Cbeebies and get a proper anchor in notably James O'brien who when he has stood in for him has made the show far more watchable and interesting.

Even if this is the case and BA don't want to subsidize their frequent fliers, the total tax on a return flight NYC-LON is $236. BA charge a "carrier imposed charge" of $458. There's no excuse for that.

Central heating being whacked up to oven like temperatures in every pub or restaurant despite the fact it's not even remotely cold. I tend to go to these places to try and relax and unwind and sitting their pissing with sweat feeling as though I am about to pass out seems to have the opposite effect for some reason.
