He never leaves me the posh chocolates!
Only a tiny whinge compared with others...I just broke a CAMRA-approved pint glass that I've treasured for 18 years.
The worst part was wrapping up the shards in cardboard before binning it.
I felt the same when I broke my ancient Bart Simpson mug.
Not as bad as breaking my For(tea)n Times one
Was that the one with Forty and Nessie ? .. always wanted one of those
Yup, I liked it, I was a clumsy fecker
£8.99 with free shipping for a replacement old girl .. .. just don't fecking break this one !
Yea I seen that before, so they get it for free then sell it fro £8.99 lol, i will seriously consider it, thank you dear X
Hmv at Westfield Stratford is closeing down no thanks to Westfield uping the rent and hmvs management did not negotiate the rent with Westfield.a staff member told me.
It's sad - I do like a proper record shop, even HMV, which I know some people are sniffy about. To be honest, though, I rarely ever buy anything there, so I guess I can't grumble too loudly if they're forced to close.
My own whinge today is piss-poor writing in email communication. I understand we're all in a hurry, but a reminder to certain colleagues: if you type a question but don't end it in a question mark, it look as if if you're either being passive-aggressive and trying to tell me what to do, or that you don't care. And neither of those impress me much!
Microsoft - They charged me twice for one game. I've tried 5 times with 5 different support staff to get my money back. I spent a total of 8 hours trying to do this.
Each time I either get disconnected or the last time a support guy said he would phone me at home, (for confidentiality reasons), and just didn't bother.
The worst customer support of any company ever and a bunch of thieves.
It's my day off and I have LOADS to do but I've come down with a cold. One of those coughing, earache/bleurgh jobbies. Bah.
To bed with you, young snail.
That's advice I won't be ignoring!
Got up to answer the door to the postman, made up a bowl of cut fruit and squirty cream and am now back in the Pit.
In the grip of a hacking cough. The postman asked me not to breathe on his electronic signature machine!
English heritage have very bad customer service, my membership ran out at the end of may, but like a good boy I renewed mid may. Still not received my new membership card, and getting in touch via my membership page and email have had no reply.
I suspect since they ceased to be a publicly founded trust they are too busy hoaring up big corporations to care for the people who actually visit their properties .
Still off work with the kidney stones, it's almost a relief to be honest because over half our waitresses are skivers on the job and are starting to do my head in. I'm thinking about promoting one chap to become their supervisor, he's good at getting them to do what they're supposed to without upsetting them .. I can jolly them along as well but I haven't always got the time. Yep .. I think I'll put him in.
Well that's you and me both laid up, me old mucker. Luckily, or not, it's my day off so I'm being paid for dossing around dosed up on t'Beechams.
Hope you're feeling better soon!
You to Skargy, get well soon X
Thank you! Though this is just a bug, I'll be fighting fit in a day or two, and anyway I'm back at work tomorrow. If I feel really bad I'll slope off home, I'm no martyr!
I've only done 11.6 hrs work so far this month .. luckily we're ahead with all bills, house payments, food etc .. I'll probably have to give up smoking though but I've got emergency gum and patches if I want to use them. My health's more important. On the plus side, I've been catching up on loads of new films I've been wanting to watch.
