I find this more of a massive annoyance than a small one.

The annoyance is large but the two letters don't take up much space.

TradeMe search filter.


Search for a car in the 15-20k range and it will begin with cars costing 25K.


Search for an i7 and it will list i5.


People who say 'gotten'.



Also people who say "yous".

The apparent disconnect between people who design drink holders in car (particularly those on the centre console) and people who design drink bottles ....

 

 

I work for a local drinks manufacturer and you'll be pleased to know that we are introducing new bottles into our range that are "cup holder friendly". 77mm diameter is max apparently, and even at that there are still some manufacturer's cars that they won't fit in.

I use the door for bottles and the console for cups. Bottles sit too high in the console and are pain.

And there lies the problem. To get 600mL+ into a bottle that fits a cup holder it ends up being taller. Add a sipper cap so it can be used one handed and even taller again.

I've got a friend that owns a larger business (per employee) than mine. He hates the very fact that he requires the use of a HR "manager" to "look after" and "stroke" his employees, yet I don't.

I get round this by managing to drive without needing to constantly drink.....

Yay.  The smaller of our cars has 78 mm ID cup holders so I'm sorted.

 

Pump is the worst bottle for this by the way.

Whoever remastered Whitesnake's back catalogue and ruined every album by so doing.
Anyone know where I can download the originals?!

I just received a business email from a large national company... in Comic Sans MS.

Be grateful that you're not using a "cloud service" where they'd probably remove the original versions!

Pump belongs to our competitor, but our current bottles isn't much different.

 

 

 

Looks like our new bottles won't be available in market until Q2 next year.
