Doing it online means she can keep her support group near, see her girlfriend, and do her new job.
Egham, actually.

Best of luck to her and study outcomes.

I applied there to read Medical Biochemistry in one of the first years they let men in. Would have been interesting to have been in the very small minority maybe but didn't get the grades.

What the heck's happened to shaving foam? Seems to have completely disappeared from the supermarket shelves.

Yes, well, along with other empty shelves, you should have thought before you voted....

In the meantime, grow a beard? It's something to do and you could dye it red, white and blue if you like

I don't remember voting to ban shaving foam, maybe it's down to the recent 'refugees' buying it all up

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Tried buying some scented wax melts from eBay earlier. Added them to my shopping basket, went to pay with PayPal, only PayPal came back with an error saying there was a “problem” with my card and should try a different card. But I don’t have another, I only use the one.

Checked my balance, yep money was there as expected. Tried it again, same “problem”.

I ring my bank as sometimes they put a block on “suspicious” transactions. Spoke to the bank, the problem was with eBay as they didn’t run the transaction using “recognised security”. I smell rotten BS but called eBay as they suggested.

I get through to their “wonderful” Filipino call centre.

Apparently the transaction was done correctly and I need to speak to PayPal.

Already I can see where this is going.

I ring PayPal. I get their to their “wonderful” Filipino call centre.

I explain that when I tried to make the transaction, the PayPal app said my car was declined

“Well that’s easy sir” he bangs in his fake American accent, “you need to simply use a different card”.

I explained I didn’t have another card and eBay told me the problem was with PayPal.

“No sir you just said it yourself!! Your card was declined so you don’t have enough money or your card is wrong”

Cue scenes of an already grumpy Russ now head butting the table.

I asked was does the error say his end.

“Oh I don’t know sir I haven’t looked at your account yet!!”

I asked him to confirm if he’d told me the problem was elsewhere without even looking at my account.

“Yes!!”

I’m seriously doing my best to not lose it at this point.

He looks as my account

“Aha yes I can see your card has been associated with suspicious activity and now cannot be used with PayPal. You will need to use one of your other cards”

I remind him that I said I only use the one card.

~silence~

I asked if anyone was going to let me know my card had been blocked by them.

“No sir! You find that out when you try to use your card on PayPal!”

I asked him if he thought doing that was good service.

“The very best service!” he said cheerfully.

No wonder humans annoy me.

Can't really complain as it had to be done but the post op procedures have been worse than the op itself, lay face down when I got home till morning and then five days and nights of laying on my left cheek, it got dull quickly but it's over now, hopefully the old eye is fixed and we'll never err look back

There used to be a really good greasy spoon opposite Moorfields and it went during the pandemic.

I like the homeless cafe, it's profits are for them rather than run by them or like a soup kitchen, yes someone did ask me this

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

2 part moans.


The number of quizzes vomited onto our screens.


The number of comedians being the host.


Don't get me wrong, I like a quiz, that are the QI, and Mock the week type, no money and just for fun.


Stuff like The Chases & Pointless are a waste of an hour.

I've gone right of them, to scripted plus oddly since I've been off I've got into tenable and tipping point the latter of which is atrocious, the presenter just wants to lick himself and the contestants in the main would have trouble finding their way out of a room without being shown so no chance of them answering questions correctly
