OfficeMax brand staples.  They're either not sharp enough or the metal is too frail, and they jam up the stapler whenever you have more than 3 or 4 sheets.

OfficeMax pens. Cheap junk that seem to continually fail.

surfisup1000:

 

Thumbnail images with 'click to enlarge' functionality, but, the enlarged image is the same size as the thumbnail. 

 

 

Usually found on crap local ecommerce sites who then complain that people buy elsewhere.

 

Its also usually way too small, the only pic of the product with nothing for scale and stolen off google image search anyway.

News reports that leave out "the" in front of "Police".

 

As in

 

 

 

"It is a matter for Police" rather than "It is a matter for the Police".

That's how the Police word it in their press releases. Media are following suit. Only been the last year or three from memory. There will be some logic behind it, I guess.





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Every time we have a storm our letter box blows down the road. I would love to get rid of it. I was going to put in a post with a number on it but was told that

 

is not allowed. I am not going to waste money on a new box just to collect junk mail.

Truly interesting - I think I've seen you post on this before. What would happen to someone who removes, or never instals a letterbox? A fine? Excommunication? Is the requirement for a letterbox enshrined somewhere?

I'm pretty sure lots of places in Pauanui don't have mailboxes.

Nope, I thought they were all made redundant by now? tongue-out Just sometimes if you're trying to find a particular house, it can be more difficult without a proper house number.
