The grumpy thread

Recommended Posts

Bugger, you would think that if there is only 1 car parked in the street that a ute driver going backwards down the street would be able to miss it (" I'm sorry, I didn't see it"). not the end of the world, at worst a replacement bumper.

Loving the insurance here. I have not yet done anything about this, but got a call this evening from the other party's ins co. They have accepted his part and liability has been settled. Gave me the claim no. And the direct ph no.for the lady who called me who is handling it. Just give them to my co. And all is done. Whatever happens next is not my problem, at worst if they write off I receive the agreed valuation and no excess is charged. I can't see that happening though.

Banks are a massive pain in the arse. Looking into the feasibility of a mortgage so applied for an agreement in principle from one of the biggest mortgage providers that may be part of the same group I’m currently on contract to

 

Thought it weird when it didn’t ask for figures for income and then, obviously, declined based upon affordability

 

Rang them and got “oh, if you’re a self employed consultant you need to have been doing it for more than 12 months”..... why doesn’t the tool say that and stop me from submitting it????

 

Going to see if I can find the development team and moan at them today :D

You cannot do an agreement in principle without knowing the income, debts and outgoings of someone.

Yeah no shit - if they’re not willing to accept less than a year’s worth of proof of income they shouldn’t accept the application at all and it should show some kind of data validation error, not just blindly submit with effectively 0 income.

 

Spoke to a broker earlier, same lender WILL consider contractors with less than 12 months under their belt as long as the application is submitted the right way. Looking far more hopeful.

Don't punch inanimate objects man. Done that to an old bridge in Birmingham once about 25 years ago and my golf ball knuckle has reminded me of it ever since... every winter... without fail. Not only that but the bird it was over at the time has turned into a fat old munter, totally loaded but totally not aesthetically pleasing. Hope life works out fella, you're not alone.

A bit... yes. Got to admit that the last few months I've considered outing it more times than I have ever done before but then I've been here before with other shite as well, and got over it. It's reassuring to read that others can't be arsed at the moment because *weather. Every time it rains there is more water in the thing than before and it's just sat on it's arse doing nothing. Well fuck that, tonight I'm going to do something constructive to it. That's right folks, on a school day I am going to pay some attention to a car I don't need.. Need to buy black paint on the way home... don't know if I can be arsed to stop at a shop...(more dots....)

The randomisation software in between the sales section and warehouse picking section of online suppliers. WTAF?

I know we joke about it a lot to the point its becoming a meme here - I just cant understand how it goes so wrong.

Time passes

postie arrives.

Uh, thats hella big box for two oil filters....

Thats because it contains one oil filter and one window regulator for a Passat.

I had this about 15 years ago where I ordered a load of stuff from Screwfix, there should have been two large sink strainer waste but one was missing, in its place was a £35 workshop hoover! I said nothing and it is still in use :)

Some of you may know I'm after 944 bits at the mo.

Phoned Porsche Centre, Nottingham where I came across a complete dickhead salesman who couldn't be bothered to put me through to parts and who kept claiming he didn't know what a schematic diagram was.

I phoned back a couple of minutes later, made a point of criticising the treatment I'd just had from Darrell and was put through immediately.

Give Darrell a ring, ask him something tricky...

NT council have informed me that my 'free' <Oi, fuck off m8 I live here> resident parking sticker is now being streamlined to ANPR based scanners, in the hands of the ParkingPlodz.

 

Ah Haaa... BUT... I must pay £50 a year - to park [hopefully] outside my own house :(

 

F...FFF...SSSS

 

WW will be slapped at his local, too!

People starting new threads - STILL - rather than using the existing ‘catch all’ options.

 

I’m not grumpy because it’s cluttering up the board, just that every time it happens my ‘last viewed page’ is reset and I end up either on pg1 or something that was posted last year.

 

Consequently, I feel confused like someone with early onset dementia, or disappointed because an item someone is selling was actually sold a lifetime ago.

 

Trivial I know. But a shame there’s no fix for this.

Saw something cheap and perfect for daily use to relieve the rusty rover, messaged the seller literally right after they listed asking to view and buy/deposit for Sunday. No reply for 4 hours until I get a oh sorry someone's viewing tomorrow but I'll let you know.

Aghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

 

 

On the flipside the 205 seems to have sold to a genuine buyer on eBay.

A grump because this should just never happen, but didn't she do well!

12 year old girl attacked for phone

He's not going to do too well in the nick if he gets caught, once his fellow lags find out he almost got his arse handed to him by a 12 year old girl.

Warning, Boring modern content (also Vauxhall Insignia content)

 

This morning's warning light bingo brought to you by Vauxhall...

 

Bastard thing is idling @ around 2500rpm, engine fan is running flat out and the temp gauge isnt moving past the 1/4 mark. Spluttering like a good one and dropping into limp mode too.

 

Oh yeah and the fucking esp has faulted out, again. Despite spending £££ diagnosing and supposedly fixing it.

 

Anyone would think it actually wants to become a Chinese fridge.

On train to Birmingham. MP3 player died at Rugby. Man nearby sleeping the sleep of the recently executed. Literally head back, both arms by side palms outwards. Making noises normally associated with large African creatures frolicking in watering holes.

 

I was up at 5:20am and normal low tolerance levels are at record trough.

 

It's gonna be a long trip made worse by the unusually base spec train with no arm rests or tables.

 

*twitch*
