    Aversion technique.
    Another way is every time you feel like a ciggy then stab yourself in the throat.

    Not so fucking insignificant...

    ...the useless fuckers we are buying a house from are yet (after four cunting weeks) to formally instruct their solicitor. Now this could be down to a few things:

    1. Lame arse son is still living in the house and they are trying to delay the sale so he can find somewhere else to live - which is fine and fucking dandy on the assumption that they actually told us this
    b. They are just fucking slack and will get around to it in their own bastard sweet time - again, reasonably fine but the house has been on the market since August 17 and the whole deal stinks of divorce (husband lives in Kuwait, wife in Dubai) so you'd think they would want an easy exit
    iii. Their solicitors will only accept written and signed instructions for the sale and insist on posting every fucking piece of paper, first to Kuwait then to Dubai, which is unfucking acceptable in this day and age and would only reinforce my own piss poor opinion of the the cunts at the bottom of the food chain that are conveyancing solicitors

    I am preparing to go fucking postal with the estate agent, especially if it is iii as a four week delay puts us an age behind our buyer who at some point (if it were me) would be getting antsy and moaning about having to continue to pay rent after meeting everyone of our requirements.

    I dunno if it's an acceptable option for you, but I'd be looking for new digs elsewhere and telling them to fuck right off.

    Getting a piss poor response from the hospital PALS people and having to start from scratch with another complaint listing all the fuck ups broken down by day. This is not conducive to general sense of well being..

    Another insurance company rant. Well, no, it's the same old rant as before, just recycled.

    Called up to cancel an active policy that costs me 20 per month. I don't have the asset any more, so I don't need the policy.

    "Our cancellation fee is usually 30, but because it's a mid-month cancellation it'll be 31.50." WTF is a mid-month cancellation? Should I only cancel on the day my monthly fee comes out to prevent the additional 1.50 fee?

    Why 30, anyway? I get that the policy is annual even though it's paid monthly, and that they have to balance the books against the cost of mid-term cancellations, but FFS, it's not like I reserved a seat on a luxury cruise or ordered a custom-built item and then cancelled after work had started - it's insurance, and when I no longer have the asset, I may no longer insure it. It's like a tax on getting rid of things.

    Any chance these are going to go the same way as rip-off bank charges..??

    Hermes, staffed by liars, looks like they may be going bust as they are delaying by any means possible my refund due to a failed delivery and my compensation following the parcel going missing, total of 12.79.
    Now in the process of taking them to county court, which means another 60 on the claim, it they don’t see this as a problem. Hence I assume they are going bust.

    SOP. They hope you'll drop the claim because it's too much hassle, like the majority of dissatisfied customers do. If they have to pay out on 10% of the claims against them they're still ahead.

    The slipperyness of the new plastic notes, and that they don't flatten out like paper ones.

    Cost of lost customers forever > still ahead.

    I used to be able to distinguish between fuel receipts in my pocket and bank notes in my pocket by touch alone. Now I cannot, and have to keep them in separate pockets. Which is probably a good thing.
