Sounds like she's THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX with her writing. She's PUSHING THE ENVELOPE. It's good that you've TOUCHED BASE OFFLINE and really DRILLED DOWN into the heart of the matter. Maybe she realises writing without question marks is a bit of a GAME CHANGER. It's a shame you're not SINGING FROM THE SAME HYMM SHEET but this is what REINVENTING THE WHEEL is all about. While you're faffing around, she's MOVING FORWARDS and going AL DESKO.

I've just seen a form our company sends out to firms we're billing, with payment details, and it's written entirely in comic sans. :fp:

What the strawberry float. There's possibly not a more formal document than a request for payment. Whoever did that should be fired for destroying the company's credibility.

I would delay payment for 6 weeks just to teach them a lesson.

Also that question mark thing is hilarious.

Amazon pushing Prime *hard* to be the de facto standard for their customers. It’s infuriating to search for an item and find that they will only sell it to Prime subscribers :x .

Just found at with TWO DAYS to go that my work Christmas party is now suddenly a super formal black tie event, when it was previously just smart/casual.

So that's more money to be spent on an outfit I'll probably only wear a couple of times in my life.

I hate that sort of thing. We tend to have two Christmas parties here now, one that we organise ourselves and have fun and the other is organised by the company and nobody bothers going because it is so corporate and miserable. :lol:

Really? What item was this?

That seems like a bonkers business strategy.

"Hey everyone. If you want to buy this item you need to purchase Amazon Prime for the cheap price of £79 and then spend more money with us on the item you actually want."

I think I'll save myself that £79 and buy it elsewhere.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

They do it with videogame games, dude - I was looking at... uhm... Gear Club Unlimited for Switch... :oops: . Even GT Sport is currently only available to Prime subscribers.

I do recall reading that some GRcadians were perfectly happy to order stuff on behalf of their non-Prime-subscribing povvo friends :toot: ...

Or you could just buy it somewhere else.

I could... but it was the attractive price at Amazon that lured me in, dude. So I guess I could get stuff cheaper if I pay an £80 subscription. Amazon are doing what many retailers, service providers and game publishers are trying to do now - get you signed up to make regular payments.

Just seen that Amazon are also doing prime-exclusive cinema screenings in America :dread: See Jumanji 12 days before the official release(!)
