Ukraine 2007 Discovery 3 TDV6 SE Manual Zermatt SilverDiscovery 3

Another plus 1 for Nationwide - they closed a lot of their branches so my nearest one is over an hour away (35 miles) and yet they have no facility for paying cheques in electronically (like every other bank I can think of)..

The cost of posting a £6 cheque (Why DART Charge send cheques out still is a whole other grumble) to them barely covers the value of the cheque (and it would certainly cost me more in fuel to take it to the branch)... maybe that's the point ?
 I want to see the sweets before I get into your windowless van... I'm not stupid!

England 
Caravan parking keele services southbound

Or should that be “lack of”. Stopped on the way home with the tin tent, followed signs for caravan parking, only to be directed through the main car parking area to a section marked “caravan parking, please use double bays”, which might work if you have a 10ft long ‘van, and if the bays weren’t still marked for cars, which means there were cars parked in them.

Disco and T/A van were across two bays plus half the road. No wonder we were the only van trying to park.

Ukraine 2014 Discovery 4 3.0 TDV6 HSE Auto Zermatt SilverDiscovery 4

Idiot in a blue Dacia Duster yesterday evening who was coming in the opposite direction towards my wife and I walking two horses. Didn't slow down at all and passed at 40 mph+ on a country road. Hanging-on to a startled horse gave me my cardio workout for about three months - I didn't know my heart could still beat that fast.

If they don't exist, I'm off to invent speed-sensitive land-mines.

Memes.

What's wrong with calling them 'funny pictures'? And why is the text written in some form of illiterate sink-school Americanisms e.g. 'Yo be like....'

The word "meme" originally meant a small packet of an idea/thought/concept analogous to a "gene": as well as biological (genetic) influences, human behaviour is also affected by the transfer of ideas/thoughts/behaviours, so a 'meme' is like a 'gene' but for ideas. Very Happy

But, yes, WTF? And why always the same crappy font? Confused

Memes in the modern sense developed in tandem with social media so the dodgy fonts and some of the wording have become fossilised as part of their common ‘language’ over the last couple of decades.

Rip off method selling event tickets.

I received an eamil from Show Films First this morning, advertising seats for Steve Coogan doing Alan Parrtridge on stage with several 'big name' guests. I have been to see him in the past in smaller venues and really enjoyed it.

What hacked me off was how you buy your tickets. First you have to pay a £6.50 admin fee to get access to buying the ticket itself. So you have now spend £6.50 to find out probably the only tickets remaining are the rubbish ones which no one else wants. Evil or Very Mad

I think NOT!!!

Free legals on remortgaging.

What is the expression about there is no such thing as a free lunch?


Free legal firm Enact wanted to close down our remortgage application as we had not returned a TR!. When question Enact admitted that they had not posted out the TR1. It is rather difficult to sign and have witnessed a TR1 before they have sent it out.

Ukraine 2007 Discovery 3 TDV6 SE Manual Zermatt SilverDiscovery 3

Amazon !! billed me for some items on an old debit card - DESPITE this being removed from my Amazon account!! Not only this but kept me on the phone for over an hour before deciding that they weren't going to do anything (there is another card on the account exactly for this reason)... they then cancelled the order (I NEED the stuff) ...

Lo and behold two hours later the delivery guy pulls up (it wasn't even due until tomorrow), checks his PDA and confirms they have cancelled it (so can't deliver) and drives off.

I come back in check my account to find that the payment has gone from pending to confirmed... so I am left without the goods and have the charge on an old account that I probably won't be able to get back.. Fuming doesn't cover it ! Censored

Wow, that's basically a scam isn't it? I wouldn't book through them if that's their MO.
