Very small things that piss you off but shouldn't really...

Anything goes, and mine's a Guinness.

The bloke (it was huge!) who had pooped and left a pile of skiddy paper right in the middle of the Offas Dyke footpath last weekend :o

To be fair guess all the public bogs being shut are the problem, but at least he could have reversed off the path and into the trees a bit.......

But sometimes..... Time and tide wait for no man.
We’ve all been there!

I might have missed an opportunity to start a cracking thread there?

It could have been called 'Emergency dumps - where and why' :D :D

Having had however many weeks of peace and quiet apart from brief play noise from our neighbours’ kids, the junior school 50m away started properly (there had been half a dozen key worker kids there).
Second day in it sounded like Glastonbury :o Five kids and one teacher in the playground doing star jumps to a music system blaring out at 100 megawatts of kiddie pop muzak inside the school hall.....5m away!
A short but sweet phone call got it sorted but have their brains faded while they were off?
What is odd is that they have never done this before in the 23 years we have been here.

Sellers on eBay and other sites that list as being UK based.
But when you order and pay it then becomes obvious the item is coming from China and you’ll be lucky if it arrives in the next month!

Not a small thing, quite often I'm happy to pay more for a shorter delivery time, so when they do it in an underhand way :evil:

The clue I reckon is if they quote a 2 week window of delivery as even Royal Mail / Parcelfarce etc manage it within a couple of days.

I had to sort a few odds and sods out today so had to venture into the real world.
Visited four retail premises around Bexhill...all of them had clear guidance but it was so quiet most not necessary.
Maybe 2% of people wearing face masks and looking terrified, everyone else just being sensible and keeping well separated.

So why did a woman on her own in a huge VW Tuareg decide she needed to wear a face mask when driving around the area?
Not exactly pi**ing me off but more “WHY??“

Retailer sending you an email with a voucher to use in their shops which aren't open in Scotland, and the voucher expires before they will be open.

Well done Infinity.
