TV shows that show someone reading something on a small device, totally illegible on a home TV screen that is not 5ft wide.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Oh come on ASDA! 11 substitutions? Mostly EXTRA potatoes it would appear.I know it's hot but you work in an air conditioned workplace and it's the coolest part of the day.

I suppose the fact you probably get paid peanuts should figure in my understanding but 11 substitutions in my order? Seriously?

I've noticed an increase in things not being available in supermarkets anylonger. Not just online delivery either. Who or what to blame? Can't say as 52% of voters get upset....

We have been quite lucky with our online orders so far with just 2 or 3 substitutions usually.

The worst supermarket online is Tesco who cancelled 2 orders in a row a while back.

Now its Sainsbury's and Morrisons for us.

Tesco came up trumps for me even though I did not request substitutions i.e. 6 bags of Walkers crisps and 2 bags of frozen chips for £1.99.

Virgin Media Retentions

Called got through to Indian Call centre. Was chatting away got cut off called again got through to UK and was then plied with so much excrement it is unbelievable

Gave her a chance to offer me a deal, said I am not bothered if you drop my speed to which she said you downloaded about 1TB in the last month you are maxing out the 200 meg. I said excuse but if if I was maxing out the 200 meg then I would be downloading terabytes everyday.

She then decided to try another approach saying that if I drop the speed then the modem might drop out or I might get buffering when streaming. To which I told her that 3 of us could stream 4K all day on 100 Meg so I dunno where she was getting her faqs

Anyway ended up offering me a deal which was not good enough especially as it will go up again in April so I put my notice in to end when the contract I am apparently on but is not on my account anywhere for me to see ends on Aug 23rd.

They need to offer me a stonking deal this time as I feel like it is time to go on Openreach so I can be a new customer every contract and get all the lovely 80 to 100 quid gift cards they give away every now and then

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Psoriasis. I only get it occasionally and usually mild but this time quite bad. Itchy does not even begin to describe it. Unfortunately it's also gone into my hands like nasty paper cuts and is affecting the finger nails. Not pretty.

Good thing it's not infectious as it's an auto-immune response.

Mr T fell yesterday and broke his (bad) leg, he was being operated one this afternoon. Hospital is not answering the phone. That will make two of us hobbling about.

l remember getting that when l was much younger and its certainly not very nice going by my own experience.

Thankfully l have not had it for about 40 years.

l hope you get better soon Heero.
