TBH my anger is triggered by the strike on 18th March, I'm supposed to be flying from Gatwick, it's literally impossible to get from Deal to Gatwick if you don't have a car or train.

Going to happen more and more as the prediction of 50% of the world population being obese by 2050 starts to occur

That includes train drivers but excludes train cleaners who are the lowest paid. Thereís a link to this on the link you quoted.

We're one club, not one team. I think it's great that good goals by ANY Palace team can be voted on.

Trying to renew passports for the family. It's taken almost all of the morning. Photos not right, website keeps rejecting them. I keep making mistakes on dates, etc on the website. Kids laughing and p!ssing around, making it 100 times harder than it needs to be.

I now need a stiff drink.

Thais. Pure evil.

Photos seem to be a bit of a scam. I got passport photos taken at a chemist. After a long line at the passport office the kind woman rejected them. Told me to go across the road and tell the chap in the shop that ??? sent me. In the shop there was a long line of people waiting to get a passport photo. Photos didn't look any different, but were accepted without the scrutiny the other ones received.
When I brought the original pics back the pharmacist gave me the money back and just sighed, saying that they do that all the time at the Passport office.

You can do your photos at home and upload to the passport website.
The problem is the software that checks the photo is extremely finicky - particularly because of the background.
Still cheaper (obviously) and easier than doing it the old way.

This weekend.

Was looking forwards to a mid-table 6 pointer with Villa yesterday, missed the first 30 mins due to ESPN being at home to Mr Cock Up for the second week running, and then having to endure a performance that was remeniscent of those dark days under P. Taylor.
And then today, looking forwards to the F1 restart only to see McLaren turn up with a car that would have been quicker if they had a horse pull it round the track.

That horrible cheap polystyrene packing that they use with the larger delicate/electrical etc stuff. Pain in the **** to get rid of and if it breaks at all you get covered in the little white balls that it comprises and they stick to you like glue (static). So much so that breaking some up to fit into the bin earlier I looked like I was wearing white mittens as white balls covered both hands and you can't get them off without a real fight. The you spend the next 5 weeks finiding them all over the place. Horrible stuff.

Good shout - that was reminsicent of a Taylor match. Not sure I wanted to remember but thanks.

The way almost empty cans of deodorant manage, when you gently put them back onto the shelf, to defy all laws of physics to bounce straight off the shelf and clatter onto the floor, or into the basin, or onto your head, or through the wall. Seriously, WTF. Am I just really heavy handed?

RazorsEdge 05-03-2023 06:41 PM

With a name like messy, I can only imagine, you being heavy handed

It was an emergency. I had known my passport was about to expire but I had no plans to fly oversea for at least another six or seven months. So with time to play with, my procrastination went into full gear. No thoughts whatsoever for any family matters that might occur overseas. An emergency did crop up however. Palace only went and reached the bloody F.A Cup final.
I had to go to one of those passport offices where, for a hefty price, you receive a renewal straight away. With my computer skills, it was far easier for me to pop into the local chemist and get the passport snaps taken, than getting stressed when the bot on the computer asks me to say "cheese" for the 45th time.

I must be the only person who doesn't have any issues with it. ITV Hub was worse.
