Mine is BBC programs that use Kilometres, when in the UK we use miles.


Then there is changing how the word is said eg "NAZI" should be Narts Ze, NOT Gnat Zee

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

SKY.

They sent me a new router at the end of March as part of the new contract. As requested I returned the old one in the packaging supplied at the start of April. Have had a couple of emails reminding me to send the old kit back but also telling me to ignore if have already return the kit. This morning I got an email to say they've added a £50 charge to our account for failing to return the router.

Nearly an hour on the phone trying to sort, including clearing security with the automated answering system then having to do it again with each of the 3 different people I spoke to. Apparently they can't sort out the charge before Thursday as that would mean they'd end up reducing our May bill by £50 when the charge has gone on the June bill. It's frustrating as it took 4 calls in March to get them to bill the account at the agreed price, and similar fun and games 18 months before. Every one of the 3 people this morning tried to tell me the system automatically adds the charges to the account. Despite me trying to explain, none of them seemed to be able to grasp that computers only do what a person has told them to do and that the system wouldn't have decided to bill me £50 for a laugh!

No it isn't.

If only I had a dynamic legal team at my disposal to chase them for every penny of compensation. They'd learn not to mess me about again

This is a good thing. The sooner we can get people to use metric more generally the better. I know my weight (mass for pedants) in kilogrammes, height in centimetres. I know portions in grammes, volumes in litres.
It will be tricky to change miles to kilometres as lot's of road signs but not impossible. (Though one downside would be dropping speeds to nearest 5 or 10 km/h not raising them. 50mph easily -> 80km/h. 70mph is 112km/h so would become 110km/h not 115 or 120km/h, 60mph -> 96km/h so would become 95 or even 90km/h.)

No it's a bad thing in my opinion, roads will always be in MPH, and England will always have a slight mix of metric and Imperial it's not going to disappear.
