Dog poop on the pavement and the lazy bastards who don't clean up after their own dogs.

 

 

 

 

i dont get this, you would rather people put the poop into a plastic bag and then into the public rubbish bin,  so it just sits there for years or just leave it on the grass so the weather can break it down and create nutrients for the grass and within weeks it has disappeared, i know what i prefer .  Pavements are a different thing , that should be removed.

Just went to New World and bought $3 worth of products through the self-checkout. There is now an extra screen that you need to skip; "please scan your Club Card". This is despite needing to purchase $25 worth of products to get any points, with neither of the products I bought being part of the Club Card special deals. There is therefore absolutely zero benefit to using the card... so let's pester the customer with it!

I don't get that - poster said 'pavement' - not grass.

There's benefit to them in tracking ALL your spending patterns to manipulate the customers. That's what 'loyalty' cards are all about. I won't use them. If they want my loyalty they need to make my life simpler, not more chaotic.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Posters who title their threads with just a product name "Spark MB76537 modem" and expecting people to have a crystal ball to let them know "Hey here's a thread I could help with"

 

People who post the threads in the wrong sub-forum - threads that are clearly about cars going into off-topic for example. This bad not only for organisation but because some people automatically watch certain sub-forum with email notifications. If OP puts the thread in the wrong sub-forum the chances of someone who can actually answer a question seeing that thread goes down rapidly. A lot of people don't care for Off Topic and won't go there.

I have a female dog. She squats to pee. A guy was driving past while she was doing her wet business and shouted "You have to clean up the poop".

 

Obviously idiot doesn't know about dogs.

At least pee washes away. I assume you're one of the responsible dog owners when it comes to poop?

Just edited a topic with a title "What do you think of this?" with something clearer in meaning.

 

Seriously @Rikkitic... I am going to start banning people that do this kind of thing. We don't need clickbaiting.

Sorry, I didn't do it on purpose. I will try to be clearer in future.
