Autoglass. When did they become so shit?

I used them years ago without problems but Bobsta has had a mare with them.

Day 1 - Chip in windscreen

Day 3 - Autoglass came to fix it. Turned it into a crack. 10 days until they could get him a new windscreen. 10 ******* days!

Day 10 - Autoglass call him with 1 hour left of the day for which the appointment was made and say they may not get to him. He needs the car so he re-schedules for the next day.

Books the day off after being promised that they would be with him between 9am and 11am.

Day 11 - 30 minutes before 11am he gets a call to say that they "can't find his windscreen". How the **** were they going to fit it the day before if they haven't even got it? He gets a bit stroppy (not stroppy enough, IMHO) and gets them to promise that they will be with him on Sunday between 9am and 1pm whilst he's at work.

10 minutes later the fitter turns up but without a windscreen. Gets on to his boss and arranges to have one delivered so starts work removing the windscreen.

1 hour later geezer turns up with the replacement windscreen. It's the wrong one.

Fitter puts old cracked windscreen back in but can't get the trim to go back on so now Bobsta has a cracked windscreen that isn't secured at the top nearly two weeks after sustaining a minor chip.

Autoglass now promise that they will fix it Sunday as promised earlier this morning.

Their adverts promise that they can fix chips before they turn into cracks - they can't. They state that it's free for people that are Fully Comp - it isn't, they charged 25 for the bodged repair.

In short they are ******* useless and I can only assume that it is the fact that they have cornered the market and don't really face much in the way of competition that has turned them into such a ******* useless organisation. :veryangry

Are they meant to be funny? Or are they cleverly self-deprecating in a way that goes way over my head?

I've now changed my mind. Come the revolution, it won't be Health & Safety first up against the wall - it will Advertising Agencies.

So glad I don't watch live TV these days.

Advance train fares that give you 45-50 minutes to use the tube to get between mainline stations in London so that if your original train gets cancelled the ridiculous amount of time given means that despite the inconvenience you still don't have enough of a delay to hit them up for the 'Delay Repay' scheme.

For example yesterday I arrived at 16:15 at Peterborough station for the 16:25 to Kings X only to find that it had been cancelled with the next being at 16:50. Given the stress of the situation I had to go to the hotel bar opposite and console myself with a pint of cider and some sausage and mustard crisps safe in the knowledge that the delays would lead to my delay repay submission being upheld therefore covering the cost of my consolation and make a fiver out of it.

However, even with the 5 minute delay of the 16:50 I still arrived only 11 minutes later than the time set out on my ticket leaving me a fiver out of pocket. It's just not cricket

Never watch it, no idea what you are on about, so I had to google it. Still none the wiser.

My senses are assaulted while watching things like CBS Reality (for Star Trek and Judge Judy), and CBS Action (now that they are repeating Ultimate Force). Later evenings are for Mystery Diners and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network.

BBC4 is excellent for late night/early morning TV. They should put a lot of it on earlier rather some of the shite they broadcast. Plus none of it has bloody adverts :lux:

Less so BBC3 (Don't Tell the Bride, Eastenders repeats, as if once is not enough, Boozed-up Morons and Russell Fcukin' Howard - what is it about so-called comedians called Russell?. The only worth-while thing is the occasional Top Gear repeat. Not surprised that dross is going. So I will now add BBC3 to the list of things that annoy me.

Such is the fate of only having Freeview.

So, is live tv worth it and where do I find it???

Extremely busy supermarket, 2 self-service checkouts out of 4 working, mother decides it's a good time to make a game of it and let her 3 year old scan every ******* item in a trolley. Ooooh, who's a clever girl? You've been there 15 ******* minutes and your kid has either scanned things 3 times or not at all, the assistant is getting ****ed off with you calling her over every 30 seconds and now there's a massive queue of pissed off people who don't think your kid is cute and who want to put your ******* head through the scanner. BEEP that you ******.
I ******* hate you and I ******* hate your nauseating little shit of a child. Forgive me if I don't share your parental pride you oblivious ****.

So much easier to put everyone and everything!

But I do accept that moaning can be so satisfying.

I can't understand that mentality....why do they think that their litter is someone else's responsibility to deal with?

A dog walker friend has seen people pull into a lay-by near her route, change a baby and leave the nappy beside the road. Nice.

Just makes you wonder what other "standards" they keep in their everyday lives ?

People that take selfies. Anyone taking a selfie should be beaten to death with their own selfie stick.

She has started to post more upbeat messages now though.

Groups of people who insist on walking 3 or 4 abreast on down the pavement. Worse still when they all link arms. Always completely oblivious to those trying to overtake.

I'm fairly sure I'm the only person in London that has anywhere to go and an idea of how to get there. Even walking across London Bridge to the station, there is literally no one in a hurry or indeed with any sense of urgency whatsoever. Does the entire population bar me manage to plan so fastidiously as to their train times that they're able to amble along without a care in the world and make their train with time to spare?

Real Londoners walk fast, they walk through tourists photos during rush hour. Where are they all?
