The wife has covid, but she hasnt got covid because she refuses to take a test....after 2 days in bed she has decided that, as its a holiday weekend "we" should clean the house top to bottom....she has now slumped on the sofa after an hour because she can't breath.

The stubborness is astounding at times.

It does make life easy.


Until they make a cock-up and you try and get your money back. You get the problem looked into and solved much quicker when you withhold the disputed amount.

To be fair I have lazy in checking and I cancelled sky as I didnít realise how much I was paying every month and o am hardly indoors to watch any of it.

But I get your point

Oh well

It's better in the UK. The Direct Debit Guarantee works flawlessly from my experience. I have used it a few times, once last year from Mini Financial Services who took £12k from my account for the wife's car that we had already paid off. Phoned the bank and the money appeared back in my account as I was talking to the bank. The banks also come down quite hard on companies who mess up direct debits.

You get a train to the summit. Where's the fun in that?

I empathise.

I also applaud you for your taste of classic trainers.

I like that style rather than anything big, bulky and garish.

Some people love trains.

Old neighbours.

Myopic, bored, cantankerous.

All I've learned from them is to, at all costs, prevent my world from becoming so small that I fixate about the margin of error of where someone else's recycling bin is situated.

Middle aged, so called "professional" (read 'arrogant'), neighbours can be a lot worse... even with recycling bins.

For those that do or even if you're a neutral, the train to Europe's highest station (Jungfraujoch at 3,454 metres (11,332ft for Brexiteers)) - goes through the North Face of the Eiger... where you can get out and look through windows in the rockface, after which you have the additional fun of being economical with the truth when you tell people "I've climbed the North Face of the Eiger".

PeterH 09-04-2023 06:45 PM

I love trains, but have probably missed the chance to do some of the great journeys.

Joe85 09-04-2023 06:47 PM

That Lloyds advert.

Fatboy 09-04-2023 06:55 PM

We buy any car adverts - especially the one with the wobbling woman in blue.

Overweight people should not be shown on TV 'dancing'

I thought with a username like yours, you would be welcoming ads from overweight people :)

Coverage of Northern Ireland troubles with no mention of what it was like to be a Catholic in the 60s and 70s, B specials and being able to vote or have a job. Ulster fry was being burnt in your home.
