People's inability to accurayely describe things they're selling, would save us both a lot of hassle if they could.
More of this. Somebodys sells something as "like new" but it turns out to be covered in scuffs and scratches. I complain and they say "it's like new, not new". :roll:
Out a Polo in the picture and describe it as "Near mint"

Is it coincidence that less than a week ago you told them you couldn't do a shift, then this week they give you nothing?

Its not that they are giving nothing, its that they have nothing workwise for anyone this week.

had phone call this morning
"Why weren't you in work last night?"
"I was due in? I had nothing on my shift schedule?"
"Oh we have had problems with that,"
Screenshotted it with time and date and emailed it

Feck, hope the museum gets back in touch real soon

Buying milk from my local corner shop and the damn stuff going off already even though I only opened it Friday and it's dated until 6th March. So I can't have a cup of tea before bed now 😡

I'd take it back and complain, it's probably been left out back too long on delivery

Somebody who has caused me great pain they took my name and my identity. Using me as a Judas goat to take that the rap for things you posted it’s unforgivable!

You gave me the wrong signals and misled me and disrespected me and I have to say was rather stung by it all!

Corona virus and US HQs setting standards for rest of world - now my local forum meeting gets cancelled with hotel bookings and travels already planned and paid.

I did actually go back in with it and moan for a replacement earlier, still couldn't have a cuppa last night though :sad:

I've always got the Coffee machine for backup, alright its the dried stuff but it tastes nice enough and foams well for when I want a Cappucino.

Todays grind is yet again my flipping body and meds, I swear it knows I want to get on with something and then makes the world spin and me need to pee several times and hour which is then made worse by my left hip not wanting to play ball as my right leg still wont work when I stand.

I'll get something done eventually I swear.

We keep a carton of UHT in the cupboard for milk emergencies. Handy when you come back from hols and haven't had time to stock up yet. Modern UHT isn't anything like the funky tasting stuff we had when I was a kid.

Trying to find a decent mothers day card with mam on it instead of mum. It has become better over the years but still flipping annoying. I mean its bot just a few people that use the word is it? Must be a market there. Guess online it is then.
