Annoying marketing.
I tried to buy somethings online but by the time I came to check out one the most expensive item was sold out so I gave up.

They've since emailed me twice to tell me I've got stuff in my basket

I didn't watch the women's game yesterday, but can only imagine what a farce it must have been.

Might be time for football to introduce the mercy rule like they have in US softball games. Maybe at 10-0 the game is called and they al walk off and have a beer at the bar instead.

Sometimes I think software developers have never lived in the real word... probably grew up stuck in their bedroom playing on their game boy and then their Xbox. God forbid they actually have to use their end product.

Straya tonked American Samoa or similar by more than that a few years ago.

edit - it was 2001 and the score was 31-0 with Archie Thompson getting 13 of them. Palace connections - Popovic, Muscat and Moore all played.

editx2 - I assume you're not quite old enough to remember Arbroath 36-0 Bon Accord?

I believe that there were a number of disallowed goals as well.

Things that annoy you

To continue my painter saga…. Contacted the guy Monday and we agreed a price. Said he could start Tuesday and turned up as promised on time. Took my doors away to spay in his shop (which evidently is his garage). Said they would be back later to do trim. No show until this morning where they spend an hour priming 2 door trims only to disappear again. Just showed up again at 4pm to do a bit more.

This guys are obviously juggling multiple jobs which is OK as the primer needs to dry and I’m in no hurry, but it means someone needs to be here all the time as we never know when they are coming.

Thank God for the BBS to keep me amused all day!

Edit: gone again at 4:45...

Entry level support advice. You didn't pay for that, I hope

(Having said that, you might be surprised how often it works!)

Not sure that helps when they change the template.

Edit: I see you said 'Or'.
