Mc Donald's using a Buzzcocks song on there radio advert

Go back to using bland generic music as that matches the food they sell better

Roadworks, goddam roadworks.

They really are everywhere round here at the moment. I can take two different routes to work and both have at least two sets of roadworks on them, one currently has three sets. :evil:

Ebay / Paypal.

So a few weeks ago I sold my boxed N64 with golden eye. Then out the blue I get a return request from the buyer saying it does not work right and the game crashes when he is playing it. I accepted the return however paypal then put a 'hold' on the funds (£77) so I had to move £77 into my PP account otherwise I could not use it. I accepted the return on the 11/8 and so far nothing no console or email from the buyer. IF he has not sent it bakc by the 1/9/ then I can close the return. I have a feeling the buyer is at it

A large roundabout near where I live. I have to deal with it on a daily bases during the week. there is no traffic control and most people drive around it at 40MPH. With a near continuous stream of traffic at peek times its very dodgy to join and then there's people using the wrong lanes to jump the queue for it, cutting you up at the last moment. Needless to say there is an accident on it on a weekly or more basis.

Welcome to the What grinds your gears? thread where probably around 80% of it is about driving. :D

2 things

Thing 1: Black Friday.

The US free for all riot thats timed around thanks giving got brought to the UK a few years back, now every fecking retailer seems to have Black Friday month filling my inbox with adverts for tat thats not really that more reduced than normal, its utterly pointless.

Thing 2: Old Injuries.

When I was a Teen I was was an idiot, picking up heavy things incorrectly, crashing bikes and the cherry on top rideing a roller coaster with saftey restraints I was too tall for, so I knackerd my lower back early on, I've done hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy and otherwise day to day now things are Alright but the last week or so I've been trying to sort stuff and locate my elusive Master System and the bugger's been acting up none stop, yesterday spasming while crawling through rafters making me almost stuck there.

Blooming cough that have had for a couple of weeks now. Have been coughing so hard at some points that pretty much given myself a headache.

Clothes/shoe shopping. :evil:

Takes hours if you shop around, trying things on etc, complete waste of a day off when I could be playing Xenoblade 2 in the warm with a cup of coffee. Nothing ever fits right and I either go home empty handed knowing I'm going to have to repeat process again soon, or I go home not entirely satisfied with my purchases, wondering if I've wasted a significant amount of money.
