spearsniper: Someone with a full trolley of groceries at the 10 item or less express lane. Normally always in front of you when you are in a hurry.


Or someone going through the self-checkout with a trolley load of hand-selected veggies and fruit with no bar codes. Takes them ages to find each item, weight it, and get into the bag, during which time the auto-checkout will usually tell them "seek assistance"....and stop dead.

Lately I have sold a couple of things on Trade Me, the buyers haven't responded to my E-Mails.



Ah Trade Me buyers.

Getting "will you post this" questions on a pickup-only Trade Me listing, and having poor feedback left for me when they haven't bothered to pay.

People asking for help in a rather vague manner in this forum, without bothering to read any previous threads or doing a google search.

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

They are wrapped :(

which reminds me of another, that incredibly hard to open plastic packaging that cuts ones fingers and brings on rage and colourful metaphors

But have you ever had both at the same pub, as I did in a rural town pre-New Year? "Sorry, we've run out of lite beer on tap - it's been really popular this summer. No, we don't have any in bottles - not much call for it."
