Why must Westpac snail mail me every three months with a document that tells me that my paid-off loan has $0.00 owing?

Countdown supermarket staff offering some type of in-store raffle ticket at the check-out or self check-out... I just tell them I never buy raffle tickets.

Youtube videos that lack a thumbnail preview along the slider bar. Maybe there's some technical reason why some have it and some don't?

 

Anyway, it's a MAJOR first world problem! tongue-out

People that post off-topic gibberish in forums. I posted a phone question and got a response about car ignitions (not on Geekzone!).

 

 

 

 

Likewise, numpties who respond to your Trade Me adverts for something you're asking $1000 for with things like "Will you accept $200, a rusty Ford Cortina with no WOF and some magic beans?"

Supermarket staff who ask how your day was, then go on to ask if you've planned anything for the evening, if you watching the game, do you have anything planned for Sunday. I'm there to transact the buying of groceries. It's not a social event.

I feel your pain. I bet they didn't call either.

Listing says Pick Ups only. Potential buyer asks how much to ship to the other end of the country

... and then abuse you when you politely say no - after resisting the temptation to say " can't you effin' read?"

The 67 billion tiny rocks in my garden that I always manage to kneel on when I am doing the weeding, resulting in nasty indentations, bruising, and some fairly spectacular bad language.

Sorry about that. embarassed Can I sweeten the deal with a packet of condoms that expired in 1990, a mint condition video tape of Bill Cosby's Leonard Part 6 and a signed copy of Lance Armstrong's autobiography?

The recent overuse of the word 'conversation' by politicians and spin doctors, it seems to be the new buzz word. Eg NZ needs to have Conversation about the NZ housing crisis.

Buzzword Bingo is what's needed.  The buzzword crap isn't limited to politicians and spin doctors.  The bright young things from assorted business consultancy forms are full of it.
