Post Office staff.

Before I started I explained I had difficulties with speech and that all three items had been specified 2nd class post, she acknowledged this and told me to put item one on the scale.

She then went on to go through postage options to which I repeated what I said, she did this on the next item aswell, to give you an idea speech for me feels like someone is strangling me and it comes out in a very horse tone.

Item number three, again explain buyer requested 2nd class parcel, she checked the value and then started arguing and raising her voice as well because I wouldnt take the signed for option that she decided could be the only option and then mid rant asked if I wanted stamps.

I'd seriously stop using Royal Fail all together if the local My Hermes pickup driver was reliable :evil:

Royal Mail prices are all over the place and seriously inconsistent. They're only worth using for small items...

Do you not have a Parcelshop that you can drop items to send off nearby?

Not overly reliable as well, I'd do the printout postage option if I could but don't have frequent access to a printer atmwhich is a royal pain as the Depot accepts prepaids and is open till late.

I noticed that, too. Maybe it's the meaning of life and we're meant to decode it? Maybe it's an AI finally developing enough confidence to join a forum?

Very, very strange spam.

dfsfvr is still going 'strong'. I've never seen the word 'sexdigitated' before. I think this may be the genesis of a TRUE sequel to 'Naked Lunch' and I am getting wet.

My parents.

My mum got invited to a christening by one of hsustomers, oh my god not only was Facebook filled with pictures of the baby, but my mum rang me and started asking questions.

Had I seen the pictures, are me and mrs apex having kids, why have we not already, when are we having them etc.

Plus they have decided they want the £700 they lent us 3 weeks ago back despite saying there was no rush for it and pay it back when we can, leaving us to find money to fix a leak in our bathroom and unable to go to the racing weekend planned for my dad's 60th.

Spending an hour taking the rear light assembly on my car apart because it told me it needed a new brake light bulb, only to fit the new bulb and put it all back together again for it to then give me a warning about my reverse light bulb also being out, so I need to do the whole thing again...

I did something like this the other day. Except I took it all off, took it inside the house, then realised I couldn't remember which of the 4/5 bulbs was which, and didn't know which 2 had actually gone. :oops:
