Accor Hotels website.

 

 

 

For some unknown reason, they require you to enter your nationality - every single time you book. That would be because I am Jason Bourne and my nationality is so flexible it changes weekly....

What happens if you have several? Can you use a different one each time?

Smart motorways do dumb things such as allow the hard shoulder to become a running lane during heavy flow - thus resulting in a number of deaths because people in broken down vehicles have no safe refuge from which to access the emergency telephone network along the hard shoulder.

 

 

But you just call them from your car? There are signs on the harbour bridge reminding people to stay in the car, they will see you on the cameras and send a cop out to see what the problem is. Would be crazy to get out of the car without a vehicle with flashing lights to block traffic.

 

 

Wouldn't be surprised if people would still plough into you in your stopped car. Could do a lot of damage shunted from the rear at 60km/h+.

Myself. For driving like a muppet this morning and cutting people off in a panic to get down a driveway I didn't see until I'd almost past it! I am sure the people behind me are building dolls in my likeness and sticking pins in it, rightfully so!

Yes. Indeed, you could also use one you don’t have as far as I can tell.

The Apple TV remote. It is a rage inducing piece of utter garbage.

People who come on here with rants and gripes and they haven't tried to address it with the provider that has (or may have) caused the issue.

People that can't drive around a corner without swinging wide!! You are doing 10-30kph! You are not a rally driver. It seems to be getting worse (as in more and more people) who is teaching this?

 

Almost had someone drive into me yesterday by coming into my lane to 'make the turn'





I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

And the drivers that are leaning over just about in the passenger seat when taking a left hand corner - the imagined G forces must be extreme to have to do that at 50 km/h.

I always feel poorly enough about myself when I make a mistake, that anything anyone else says or does is likely to be less :-/

Buying so called "fresh" fruit from grocery stores to have it go off with in two days. Doesn't matter which chain the results are the same. Its a rip off. It should be clearly stated how long this stuff has been stored in a cooler.
