surfisup1000: At the gym --- people who are using 3 machines at the same time.....doh!!! 

 

At the gym: People who don't clean the equipment after using it. I don't particularly want to lie down in your pool of sweat, thanks.

 

Geektastic: Signs to nowhere. Quite common. 

 

For example, a sign to an hotel not too far from here tells you to turn off the main road. Good - done that. It then tells you to turn again. Done that. You then come to a T junction...where there is no sign. At all. So left or right? Toss a coin.... 

 

Perhaps that means you've passed it? 

 

 

 

 

Possibly - although not in the specific example I mentioned as you have to turn left and drive about another 15km!

When you offer a item you are selling on TM at a fixed price, and the people who have it on their watch list's don't bother replying.

These fixed price offers only last for a couple of days don't they?  If people don't respond they obviously didn't want it at that price.

Whoever thought making the backspace key act as a browser back button was a good idea.

 

They annoy me.

The chrome extension seriously gets to read all your data on all webpages?  That can't be good...

Yeah the seller can choose 1, 3 or 5 days. If the buyer chooses the decline the offer, the seller gets notified. Meanwhile most people don't accept/decline and you are left waiting 5 days where it could be relisted.

The problem is all the damn sellers that offer it for the buy now price, If I had wanted it at that price I would have bought it at that price. Or will buy it when it is relisted.

Not heard of the one before, I think we are very much a dog liking nation. Staffy's and other fighting bred dogs, not so much
