Especially YouTube. There is a lot of good content, but the interface is such an inflexible cluttered mess that I have pretty much stopped using it.

Stating the obvious simply to comply with some bureaucratic nonsense.

 

 

 

Air NZ actually has a recorded message telling you that if you make a request you are giving them consent to fulfill the request......

People in a queue of cars that toot and get upset, gesticulate, rev their engines or attempt to drive around as you let a group of cars enter a side street, instead of exactly merging like a zip, because there is a non moving queue in front of you and you have no where to go other than 5-10 meters further up the queue.

I had exactly this on Tuesday coming back to AKL from Dunedin after a work trip.

Apologies if I've mentioned these before, but anyway -

 

Trying to order a bluray from Amazon UK. Nope, they won't send it to my address. This is from something called Amazon EXPORT Services.

 

Trying to order a keyboard from Amazon US. Nope, they won't sent it to my address. This despite the fact that they happily sent the exact same model to the exact same address about a year ago.

And the utterly hideous crap that they're putting on some of the roads in Whakatane at the moment. Think its called chipseal. Driving on it today think I got a stone from the stuff stuck somewhere in a front wheel, rubbing against a brake disc maybe. Made the most ghastly, gross, disgusting, freakish screeching, yelling, squawking noise as I aimed for the nearest tyre centre for them to have a look. Fortunately it fell out / stopped after a kilometer and tranquility was restored (apart from the associated swearing, cursing and cussing).

Agreed. This idea that we, the motorists, can suffer damaged tyres and wheels, scratched paint and broken glass as a result of lackadaisical roadbuilding by councils and somehow the councils can avoid any responsibility for that is very annoying.

Windows again... I wish it would let you delete folders that either contain or once contained images, rather than popping up with "hurr durr I refuse to delete this because I don't want to touch the precious Thumbs.db".

Quite a lot of effort went in to this.  To load up a mattress, a couple of tyres, a broken coffee table, a bin and large bag full of assorted junk/rubbish - presumably into a van or station wagon - drive through suburbs, probably going right past waste stations and recycling centres, up a long winding uphill road, to find the perfect place to dump it on the side of the road *for free*.

Behodar:

 

Westpac has managed to break my bookmark to online banking, as the old URL is now redirecting to "bank.westpac.co.nza". Sigh.

 

Edit 27/1: Fixed. It was still broken a few days ago so it took a while!

 

 

Aaaand they've broken it again.

More bemusement than annoyance, but "Baby On Board" signs in cars.

 

In the 30+ years that they've been around I've never understood their purpose.

It makes the driver feel entitled, special and superior. Maybe they also think other drivers are going to drive more extra-specially carefully in the proximity of their car because no-one wants to hurt a baby.
