The grumpy thread

That's the function where you can make it make a noise so that if you're really very close to the item in question (keys in a pocket for instance) you can have it make a sound so you can get the last few feet to the item tagged.

Using the sounder on a cat seems a little* unnecessary.

I had one of those tiles on my keys for a year or so, that's how long the non-changeable battery lasts. It was pretty useful. 

 

Shame you can't program the sounder to say 'Set me free you Crazy Bi@tch!!'

I'm seriously, seriously done with living in this shithole of a town.

Latest development has been with the exception of yesterday, every day this week so far someone has been throwing bagged dog shit over the fence into our garden from the side that backs onto the road.

God I'm sick of this place.

I'll bet that's the same person every time.  A recording camera showing the same person doing it every time would likely end up with a prosecution.  Either that, or you can find out what time they do it, be ready and fire a large cow-pat directly at them from a trebuchet.

I'll bet there's a product on the market somewhere that lets you do that.  Would be absolutely brilliant!

It's the failure to give it back on demand and cats being defined as 'property' that makes it actual theft, for which she has been reported several times in the past couple of years. At this rate she'll be going to her grave with a fucking criminal record.

But she didn't know it was there, and returned it as soon as she discovered it.

Won't stand up in a court of law.

Has she got a cat flap, does it wander in of it's own free will?

I can't find my cat half the time and I know it's in.

Thing is you can't see the road from this side.  It's a six foot high fence with a hedge on the other side of it. 

We'd been looking into CCTV for the driveway side for peace of mind...but I really hadn't thought it was going to be necessary for this side...

To be honest I really can't be bothered with the hassle of it, it's somewhere around item number 389 on the list of things that are doing my head in, I just want to move at this point.  Over the last seven years I have developed a deep absolutely seething hate for this area, with the notable exception of a handful of friends I've made.

Really having no luck job searching,I'm literally searching most of the day,I don't feel like I've earnt a break from it unless I've achieved something,I know we have all the covid stuff affecting the market but the few jobs I can do are either min wage and wouldn't cover the cost of getting there or too far away and min wage.Ive got about 14 applications out,I had an interview over two weeks ago and checked with them as I hadn't heard and they still haven't decided,which to me says we're waiting to see if someone better comes along,I have got a phone interview tomorrow which I'm.dreading as I'm not that good on the phone as I am in person.Really struggling mentally with this and thinking about the bigger bills of insurance and Mots coming up as well.

yuk...... when i was working near Nottingham, the place i was lodging in was up a track though some woods, there the poop bags were artfully placed on the lower branches of some of the trees, ABOVE the bin thoughtfully provided by the council.......

the fuckin' mentality of some people, it used to make me wonder if the Nazi's weren't on to something!

I was thinking a shower of used, previously overheated EP90 would be more appropriate.

 

Or is that considered to be such cruel and unusual punishment that I'd end up being pursued for breach of the Geneva Convention...

If the Burmese Army can get away with what it's doing at the moment, so can you.

She likes the cat. Why not let her have it?

Sorry, I should have read the whole history of this.

If she already has cats you should tell her to leave yours alone.

Someone kept putting dog shit into my wheelie bin. One evening I saw them do it and the following day there was a sign on my bin that read, 'Bloke with black poodle, take your shit home'. There was never any more

at work we used to have some dick ed throw dogs shite bags onto the car park from the road  , then the cars would run over it and spread it every where ..

then people would tread in it and spread it around the school ...

when I got in at 7am in a morning , a few minutes found it all thrown back over the fence ...

it soon stopped ...

it also came with the open gates , people would find it alright to nip in and let the dog drop its load and then walk off ,before the staff could get to them

its only a training area for blind people !!!

The market at the moment is beyond crap because of how many people have found themselves out of work due to COVID.

One of my housemates is on the interview panel for some areas where he works.  They had a post open about a month ago, normally they would have expected 150-200 applicants for a post at that level.  They received just over 36,000 applications for this post.  Apparently it's like that in all areas of the business.

My husband has been job hunting for 13 months now too.  Fixed term contracts suck.
