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.

They are wrapped :(

Oh ..... and pubs that do not stock low alcohol beer because "we do not have a demand for it". HELLO ???? 

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."
