Inconsiderate neighbours...
I have to move the cars off the drive in order to wash one at a time on the drive.
I always try to park the cars on the road so that I'm not blocking people's access.
Then you get the neighbour across the road who just rolls up and parks opposite without any consideration for others and whether they can pass or not :-x
What an ars :silent:

It appears that Sir Philip Pullman is urging people to boycott the new 50p coin because the inscription on the back does not contain an Oxford comma.

Well, I’m not so fussy, Philip. Send them all to me and I will spend them on my favourite foods, coffee, and wine. 8)
The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Why do the little buggers I teach feel compelled to cheat? I spent a day reviewing. I gave you a thorough review guide, and I practically hand fed you the answers I’m looking for to the written response questions. Yet you little rat-b*st*rds still cheat.

Enjoy the 100% free response question tests that might be coming, because that’s the consequence of your actions.

Thank you Samsung for repairing my faulty phone.

Fantastic customer service, good communication, friendly staff on the first vidit, all booked in for repair.
Oh wait, no, it's not covered by the warranty after all.
So 2 trips to Westfield, £12 parking, time off work, and lots of aggravation, swapping to a temporary phone, including losing all my texts, lots of contacts etc.
It's ok though, at least you're delaying the repair, because you may honour you're warranty and that must be a tough decision.
Bitter sweet if you do, as this will mean wiping the phone, and me being unable to recover the texts etc.

Seriously considering a move to iPhone..

Regards Steve

Banned from TZ again for upsetting one of the locals ... I love the forum for some things, hate it for others
