People who obsess over a piece of dirt with unnaturally short non native plants growing on it, and use noisy machinery at unreasonable times on the weekend to shorten the plants.

 

Just put concrete down FFS!

Yuck no.  Another neighbour has done that and when looking over into their backyard (as you do) in the middle of summer it's like looking at snow under sunshine.  I'm sure they'd need to wear sunglasses out the back!

Customers who query EVERY single invoice or quote to check if they REALLY need it, as if we simply quote things to line our pockets and buy our 3rd Ferrari this year!

Customers who late pay multiple invoices in a lump sum, don't pay the total amount invoiced and when asked say "we will pay soon".

Had a customer tell me (more or less) to stop pestering him with reminders of an overdue invoice. What I was doing was trying to make sure neither he or I would have to deal with the troubles of collection.

 

Apparently trying to avoid him getting a bad credit score was very rude of me.

 

Next time it's going straight to collection without any extra notices.

I know I've already lost the battle on this one, but every time I hear someone say "New Years", when they mean "the New Year".... 😡

"Happy the New Year?" I think it is the wild chasing of the goose. Now enjoy the partaking in the consumption of the pastries called the nuts of the dough.

Not having a dog.

I'm loving the expat life but I do miss my mutt.

She's living the dream on a farm but still.

Knowing what they do with unclaimed dogs in the Middle East puts me off getting a dog here..

I feel your pain.

Islamic legal tradition has developed several injunctions that warn Muslims against most contact with dogs.

Unfortunately, many Muslims have used this view to justify the abuse and neglect of dogs, even though cruelty contradicts the Qur’an’s view that all animals form “communities like you.”

People using religion as a justification for anti-social, inhumane or violent behaviour.

Customers who pay the wrong outstanding amount after "we will pay soon".

 

Three months to pay three invoices. Then overnight they overpay by $1000. It took then an average four days to reply to my emails asking about the payment. 

 

It took then 20 minutes on a Saturday morning to reply when I said I needed their back account to process and pay a credit note back to them.

Terms and conditions for attending shows that aren't disclosed at the time of ticket purchase.

 

Some of them are completely insane... "Glass bottles are permitted but these must be sealed and must not contain any liquid"
