Even worse are the people who know you're expecting and looking out for them, but still insist on honking the car horn wildly as they drive past the house, turn around and park outside honking again. I'm expecting you ffs. Even better just get out of the car and walk 6ft to.my.door you lazy bastard.

Oh and don't forget to honk all the way down the road when you leave too.

Yep. "Salad" is a codeword for "Glitter me!".

Agreed. Living in flats, there is often some plonker driving in and pressing the horn... these people are usually on their phone updating Facebook for 18 hours a day, so why can’t they just make a call?

Hell, there's even a ring around the button that lights up blue so just in case you are deaf, there is a visual aid to tell you that, yes, this device does actually work.


Delivery drivers who rap loudly on the door when you have a doorbell fitted.


I have a friend who does that when he comes to visit. Problem is if I have loud music playing I can't always hear a knock at the door so I keep the doorbell speaker in my room when expecting company. Invariably after 10-15 mins of him knocking I get a phonecall from him saying he's been outside for 10-15 mins. I'm like "Dude, I've got a doorbell for strawberry float's sake"

We have an actual hard wired acoustic bell but couriers and the like hardly ever ring it. RM yesterday just tapped twice on the door with their knuckle. I work upstairs so it's bloody annoying how many people don't look for or for some bizarre reason don't know how to operate a doorbell. UPS haven't shown up at all so my job is 48hrs late. I wish couriers understood the cumulative effect of failing at their service.

Yeah I agree with this a lot. This year I've bought most of my Christmas gifts from online stores other than Amazon. I bought four items from them still, as they had some things I found hard to source elsewhere - specific items.

I've seen them hold back videos games, blu-rays, and last year at Christmas they wouldn't let me buy an external hard drive. The fact they won't let you buy these things at all is ridiculous. Imagine Tesco not letting you buy butter unless you had a Tesco clubcard that cost you £70 a year (or whatever Prime costs).

Safe to say that, combined with Amazon being full of third party sellers, means I'll pretty much never be on there in future.


That is the exact business model Costco have and it works for them.

I have Prime, but luckily I have the cheaper student version which was free for the first year, and then I paid $20 to renew it this year, not too shabby.

Minions. strawberry floating minions.

Every day at work we have a worklist sent by email. Basically just a spreadsheet showing the outstanding work that everyone has. The lady that sends it always puts a Minion picture on the email with a "witty" caption on it.

Today's has a picture of a Minion in an American cop uniform and reads "The Officer Said "You Drinking?" I Said, "You buying?" We just laughed And Laughed. I need Bail Money".

Arghhhh!!!

Where can I get a job where people have so little to do they are able to do that gooseberry fool, and are not called out on it. I'm struggling to organise the work that needs doing, so I can try to make a proposal to ask for more staff, because I'm too busy trying to keep up with the workload. strawberry floating hell.

Just had to exchange my new OLED TV as I'm not happy with the screen quality/reliabilty.

Its developed a line of stuck pixels after only a few hours use so will be exchanging it for the cheaper non OLED version.

Also, posting in incorrect threads.

We have business champions in my place.

I hate that name. So much. It implies that they won something. When they haven't won anything. It's just plain wrong.

See if Moggy's company is recruiting. You get to either post on GR all day or send out e-mails with minions on.

Yes?

Instead of step 5, collect the payment and fire the client.

Some people at my work do a Minion Shirt Friday every week, and insist on having an after work trip with their Minion-loving colleagues (which of course has to be advertised to all and sundry in our facility) to see every new Minion film. :x

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Isn't it used in the verb form, to describe people who are tasked with 'championing' specific business initiatives, rather than as a noun?
