What Grinds Your Gears...

Recommended Posts

women

 

 

It's when they say one thing but mean another that grinds my gears.

 

On Saturday I was asked to leave her alone, so I went out and watched our FA Cup game against Chelsea, did a little bit of celebrating afterwards and then went home. She was off with me and then told me (i.e. had a go at me) she hadn't wanted me to leave her alone and that it showed I didn't care :blink:.

 

But she used to moan at me for not leaving her alone when she asked me to, and used to say "I wouldn't ask you to leave me alone if it wasn't what I wanted".

 

Fuck.

Ye gods I wish I had gone blind before I enlarged that to see it.

 

On second thoughts no I don't If I was blind I would have to read the "instructions" by touch. :lol:

AirMiles...I bought Josh's Wii on ebay through airmiles which means I got 15 miles added to my account. The next day they took out 16 miles :mellow: . So I queried it....got an email back asking for "proof of purchase" but surely their system logging it is proof. And even if there was a problem with the transaction (which there wasn't) they've still stolen a mile from me :angry: .

 

It's not the end of the world in the grand scheme of things as I've got the best part of 20,000 but it's the principle :unsure: .

We're 600 miles away from two returns to anywhere and you can book at any time (though it needs to be a fair way in advance).

 

Unsure what we're going to do with them yet...India is favourite, lengthy trip including a train journey or two, but it's a few years off yet :) .

"Thank you for your recent email. The proof of purchase is generally a required piece of information we need to authorise the miles to be awarded, however I have manually awarded the 16 miles for you today."

 

Should bloody well think so.

Seems ridiculous.....if you "had to" walk do you not have a case for constructive dismissal :mellow: ?

 

Can you not get Income Support?

i had to leave because of the costs that were involved with the traveling, i was traveling about quite abit within the job, and not getting much back in the way of expences and that, so after a few choice words with the management i walked out, but the benefits systems is just screwed, they tell you to apply for it, even though you are going to have to wait 4-6 months because i voluntary left the job!! ive done shift work for nearly 8 years solid now and paid my taxes etc etc, and this is the result....NOT HAPPY!!! :angry:

i feel strongly that they should come with instructions tattooed to them ;)

 

here are some instructions:NINE WORDS WOMEN USE

 

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

 

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

 

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

 

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

 

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

 

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

 

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

 

( Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

 

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

I may have already said this one but people who put your instead of you're, and there instead of their or they're.

Amen!

 

And too instead of to...are instead of our...and about a gazillion others :angry: .

 

I don't mind it so much from people who have genuine trouble with spelling and grammar, I know people do through no fault of their own; what annoys me is when it's someone trying to be a clever bastard. There's a guy on another (non-EFC) forum I use who thinks he's fucking Dostoyevsky but drops in these laughable mistakes. Can't say anything because you just know you're going to be accused of being a "nazi" so I just bite my lip and want to punch him (not just because of his grammar, he's an annoying arrogant shit in so many ways :major overreaction alert: ).

 

Just off for a lie down :unsure: .

Neighbours. 7 days until my planning application decision, hope my neighbour's stupid comments don't sway the result. If it gets approved I am going to staple the approval letter to his fucking forehead.

:lol: :lol:

Exaggerated everything...hopefully it is lucky I am a geek for the evidence I have produced.

Claims of overshadowing and loss of light to a family room. My extension is north facing and I have created a 3d model of the street (took quote a few hours) in Google Sketch Up (quite possibly the best free application I have ever used), which you can add geo-referencing to and see all year round the shadowing (or lack thereof) to the "family room" - which happens to be a kitchen/diner; some councils do not deem a kitchen as a habitable room. They then waffled on about drainage etc but it is all in the attempt to smear our application...we have never got on with them so the comments were expected but just pisses me off when people say such exaggerated bullshit. No other objections for any other neighbours. As you can tell I am a little wound up right now until we get the decision...and I am ridiculously busy... :angry:

Yepper Mike that is one that grinds my gears.

 

Do you remember the accident claims company (I cant remember the name) but it it had that lopsided red letter 'T' in the name. Well they got found out when the 500th victim put in a claim through the courts (via them) after an accident on a Liverpool bus. It turned out that a bus was going to Gilmoss garage to park up (nobody on it apart from the driver) when it hit a kerb. 500 passengers later the courts got wise to them. :lol: I think they closed down after that was made public.

Our planning application was approved, I have my staple gun in one hand and approval letter in the other :shaking fist:

 

class well done, I didnt want to tell my planning application story when yours was in progress, mine took 18 months to be approved after various revisions due to neighbours objecting to what other people have already in the estate... anyway we got there in the end, not want we wanted but better than what it was so I can lend you my staple gun if you want :)
