Things that irritate me

Insurance companies.

Just had a renewal notice from my current motor insurer. I thought that the quote was a bit on the high side. Compared the meerkat and the best quote was £67.00 cheaper (and even £20.00 cheaper than last year's quote) - from the same company!

I had to contact them to make sure that the automatic renewal of my existing policy was cancelled. When I queried the discrepancy in price between the renewal letter quote and the self-researched quote, I got a rambling explanation about dynamic market fluctuations etc.

I'm afraid I had to cut the bloke short with, "No, please don't bother, you're actually boring me now with nonsense".
Even better when you cancel your renewal, and then go through a cash back site to end up back with the same company
 
I am irritated by my own inability to solve a problem for an online course I am taking - spent about an hour and something on it but unable to make it work. I must be the dim witted guy in the class. Will try and give it another go tomorrow.
 
Looking for DeWalt drills (following a recommendation from my kitchen fitter squad) to replace my old burned out B&Ds
Around £70.00 seemed fair.

Then size 3 font at bottom of advert......
No effin' battery:mad:

Holy Moly.
Maybe next month.

There must be someone here who can assist pushing it along surely?
Or perhaps you want to tough it out for yourself.

'Are You Over 18? Yes/No' seems like an easy choice to me . . .

I will try and see if I can solve it by myself. It's quite an important problem (which involves some math) as it sets you up good for the rest of the course if you can solve it, understand the mechanics behind it. My math is a bit rust and so are my programming skills hence the hair pulling.
 
People who eat and drink in shops!!

Can you not spend 10 minutes looking for a new coat, without having the need to eat a sandwich?

If by Math you mean Maths, then chuck it out here and we'll see what we can do.

Oh, that's nothing. I followed one chav family into Tesco last week. Maybe I should give them credit. They first went to the sandwich section and handed two of each to each (five) children plus two for each adult, who proceeded to eat them as they wandered around the store. By the time they'd reached checkout they'd eaten the lot and didn't pay a penny.

I've seen others do the same with crisps and chocolates.

It boils my piss.

It's become commonplace. You see it all the time. The stock losses must be pretty massive. It is just as much theft as any other shoplifting, yet the stores do absolutely nothing about it. There should be signs around the stores saying that the consumption of items in the store before payment is not permitted.

It seems to be viewed as the acceptable face of thieving. The stores seem to have become averse to confrontation.
 
Type 2 menopausal and twice-divorced women who:

1. Insist on calling the chat application their phone 'WhatsUp'.

2. Believe that everything from James Blunt to their last Latte is 'amay-zing'.

3. Place at least 3 extra S's on the end of 'houses', 'cars', et al.

4. Refuse to throw out anything that is Size 10 as ' . . . I'll get back into that in a couple of weeks.'

So how is your wife these days?

I frequently eat a bar of chocolate because of feeling faint in the supermarket. Do keep the wrapper and pay for it though.

Either that or pay first, then eat.
