    Yeah, but they're based in Coventry - that's quite a commute, you'd think they'd find digs closer to their ground. Come to think of it though, their buzzing does sound a bit Brummie.
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    - People that show off about Possesions that do not realise they have zero taste
    - People that compare Vintage & new on a performance stand point
    - People who think Retro & Vintage are the same thing.
    - People that have a vested interest in other peoples affairs
    - People that claim others have a sad life regarding hobbies when its just a case of pot, kettle, black
    - Industry tell us a format is obsolete/people that make it happen..
    - Industry that makes a format obsolete yet introduces it back years down the line!
    - TV channels still transmitting programmes in SD + Channels broadcasting in 4:3 aspect ratio to make the poor quaity more acceptable, not.

    Lol... I'm with you on most of those, but in terms of the ones I've highlighted, I can't help but think of your Swedish friend and mine

    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.

    Ha - thought so!

    What I always found beyond hilarious (as I love unintentional irony), whenever I read his shite, was that *we* were always the "sad bastards with no life", whilst all the time he was posting tens of thousands of posts on his shitehole, full of mindless bile, under various different guises, spewing hatred at me in particular, the same old cack over and over (and over), and wasting what spare time he had, in between cleaning his oven (haha) and wanking off to porn - yet *we* were the sad bastards with no life!!

    All he ever does is work > post shite on his shitehole > eat > sleep > wank > shit > clean his oven > repeat! The sum total of what he cares about is money and material possessions

    He has no discernible relationship I can see with his wife (they never go on holiday together, out for a meal, to the cinema or anything) - certainly not a proper marriage in the true sense of the word - and despite his (claimed) 'wealth' is clearly one UNHAPPY puppy [he just doesn't seem to know how to let go and enjoy himself]/has no concept of how to have FUN, and yes therefore, the very definition of a "sad bastard with no life".



    Anyway, maybe one day he'll take a good look in the mirror and acknowledge his pathetic existence? I truly pity him, as I could NEVER live the so-called 'life' he leads.

    Marco.

    I just hate angry, nasty aggressive people who enjoy trying to upset and assert themselves on others.
    I agree, though I was once slightly nasty to someone in a queue at the supermarket. Someone In front of me was dithering about which queue to get into, and I commented on this - hedging her bets as to which would be quicker, and possibly intending to allow her companion with a trolley in front of me.. This provoked a reaction - no more details than that - and made me feel bad - but the reason I was/seemed grumpy was because I had a really bad cold and just wanted to get my purchase (only one or two - may have been something like a pack of tissues, or box of neurofen) and go home to bed and the girl was making this hard. I was made to look bad, so not worth trying to explain my way out of that for the benefit of others in the queue.

    Grumpy people may not be bad all the time. Your guy sounds as though he made a habit of it.

    I think we all have bad days when we might be less than out best selves, I know I have them at any rate. Having worked in shops I can attest to being the object of one or two people's less than best furious selves, and likewise to not always having been my best self to every customers either.

    My cat is an excellent indicator of volume levels - when she gets up and leaves the room I know I have the level just right

    I recently sold a soundbar ont bay, sent it with Hermes, I've tracked to see if it's been delivered and apparently it's coming back because I asked for it to be returned, I didn't. I used the online chatbot and that told me its was coming back because it was no longer required, eh? Next I logged into my Hermes account which says it's been delivered! FFS
