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.

 

 

Surely you would repay as slowly as they took to pay you tho?

It came this morning, so won't show on Xero until Tuesday (since it will be a Monday transaction) and I can't reconcile/create credit note before that anyway. I am on holiday now so will reconcile accounts and send out a credit note when back at work... Which is 6th of January now.

kingdragonfly: 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.”


The real problem with anmals in the middle east isn't Muslims. It's expats who get a puppy, stay for a year then abandon it when they leave.

2.4Ghz coexistence. Now I have moved the AP in my kitchen, the sub on the bedroom soundbar keeps dropping out. Why does noone make a wired sub on a soundbar FFS!

Reminds me of companies that take months to supply you with something you order, regardless of how that inconveniences you, then bang the invoice in on the day of delivery and have the temerity to chase it 7 days later...!

Customers paying invoices via insurance policies with excesses. I then have to chase them for the unpaid excess the insurance company didn't pay me..

mumbling fast-talking actors, usually in American TV action series.

The days are gone when actors were taught to enunciate so people could what was spoken without guessing.

I was watching the Mandalorian on Disney+. Ironically the guys in helmet and full face masks were easy to understand.

His female peer, with nothing covering her face and a "human" accent, I caught about 60% of what she said.

I literally had to turn on the sub-titles. Then I discovered someone added new slang strewn in her lines.

Perhaps it's retribution from another noisy neighbour on Saturday night? I lived in a flat next to one that had loud Friday and Saturday gatherings. I used to get up and mow the lawn early. Always took awhile for the mower to warm up, would leave it idling while I boiled the kettle...

Might be that my definition of early is a bit liberal. 

 

There wasn´t any parties around here last night, that I could hear. And if there had been, chances are it would have been the same neighbour... 

 

Contemplating the noisest retribution I could do a Sunday morning, say around 7 am. Any suggestions?

Waterblasters at dawn? Sounds like some sort of modern-day Western.
