Yuck. Is this an unintended consequence of the crackdown on freedom camping?

Ge0rge: When an item (small filter, size of a coke can) can go from Perth on Wed afternoon, to Auckland by Friday morning and then not move a mm towards Wellington since :(


 


Happens all the time. I had a camera take 8 days to travel from Auckland to Martinborough. The lazy so and so's don't seem to work at weekends, so stuff just sits there in a depot doing nothing when it could be getting closer to the destination.



Seven days later, and still a little boy waits...



2 weeks, still waiting... This is just starting to take the mickey now!

Stuff loses me with their short videos that require an ad almost as long to play before I can see the content.
I move away 99% of the time because that just psses me off.

 

So many things on that site annoy me. Other websites do it too, but content that loads at bottom of the page as you scroll down changing the length of it especially on mobile devices pisses me off.  Surely the page length can be made static and include placeholders for the space to be used by yet to load content?

How every time there is a long weekend the shops fill with panicky buyers stocking up for the apocalypse.

Hahaha, yes. Thursday will be bedlam this week at supermarkets around the country.

 

Then, they will all be back to do it again on Saturday, just in case the supermarkets forget to open again on Monday morning.

 

I wonder if the supermarkets turn over their same weekly turnover even though they closed for a couple of days?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: We need to remove the Snipping Tool from our work PCs so that people can't crop all the context out of their "I get an error" reports.

When a company phones your cell phone, and the number displayed on screen is not a recognised number for that company, and they can't understand why you're not happy to oblige when they ask you to identify yourself with the usual security questions. How do I know you are who you say you are? 





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Don't know how we coped back in the day when there really were no shops open from Good Friday through until Monday. Well possibly the odd dairy, but they were restricted on what they could sell - icecream fine, but don't try to buy a bar of soap 😀

Announcements from cabin crew or pilots over the IFE. Why do they need to be 3 times higher in volume than the movie or TV show you were trying to watch.

Marks on mobile phone screens.

 

 

 

I just noticed a 3" diagonal mark on my screen today. Now, it's probably just in the plastic film screen protector but how did it get there? The phone is in a case, with a magnetically held flap that closes to protect the screen when not in use. It hasn't been dropped, banged or thrown about.

 

Phone screens just seem to get marks like magnets collect iron filings. I don't care if I can use my phone as a credit card or whether the camera can see in the dark - why can't you people who make them with screens that don't mark?!

And they pause the movie to say "flight attendants, arm your doors" or whatever it is. Like the rest of the passengers care.

"the captain has just switched on the seat belt sign...." yes I know I heard it, maybe you shouldn't bother with one if you are going to announce it as well.
