That one Vodafone csr that has a really noisy keyboard and seems to like hitting it really hard. Then there’s another one that has a noise that I can only describe as a ping like someone hitting a crt with a piece of metal. Maybe a necklace hitting the phone mic? Combine that with their very sensitive microphones on their headsets and me struggling to hear their mutterings as they enter details on tickets ...

Behodar:

 

Websites that demand a "first name" and "last name" instead of just having a single "name" field. A company doesn't have first and last names!

 



Behodar Limited

 

or Behodar Unlimited if you want to think big.

 

 

 

 

But that couldn't actually be a company.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

SirHumphreyAppleby:

 

Toilet paper dispensers in public toilets. You always end up having to reach inside and carefully manipulate the paper to get it out. An absolutely rubbish design that is entirely fit for purpose - they must save councils and restaurants hundreds of dollars per year.

 

Just hope you're never in a clean-up situation where you really need paper.

 

 

It's a significant step up from the old public service loo paper that was prevalent a few decades ago - about 8" square, brown, shiny wax coating on one side, and rough-as-guts unfinished on the other. So rough, you couldn't use more than one rough side without fear of involuntary clamping, and sandpapering out the 'roids.

 

The wax side was a blessed relief, though did stuff all to actually wipe anything, but just tended to smear stuff around.

 

It's saving grace  - it was fairly indestructible - no fear of accidentally punching a hole through it, and you couldnt really crunch it up - it would rapidly unfold like possessed origami.

 

 





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

The "hoops" that Companies put you through to claim a Cashback / Product Credit!

 

I know why they do it:

 

Many would give up or fail to do it correctly, so they save money, whereas with a discount of the product they wouldn't!

Blurry photos in captchas, requiring you to guess if it's a storefront, or if the edge of a traffic light in means to be in out out.

I get the odd leery look on busy school/work commuter mornings when I back out of MY driveway onto MY street, only to get the odd leer from some "foreigner" using MY street as HIS go to work highway, if he is slightly inconvenienced by me using my street

 

(Foreigner meaning someone who is out of the local area)

I used to get that and I live in a grove. So I now drive in and drive out.

Especially when they keep popping up new images over and over. I really hate those stupid things. There are such better ways.

Yeah, but the louder it sounds the faster it is...everyone knows that. even faster still if you can get it to backfire on the downshift
