How can I help you today?
Doctors Surgery's lack of patient focus.
Before lockdown - next available appointment was normally at least 2 weeks away, usually 3 weeks.
Since lockdown - last week, wanted to book appointment for granddaughters second MMR after receiving a letter telling me to get an appointment as it was now due.
Rang surgery and had to sit through FOUR "information" messages, then finally put through to someone that could answer a phone, but after hanging on for ages on three separate occasions, just wouldn't answer it. So I went in person to the surgery and it was all locked up behind big gates, no bell. Lights on inside, people working - no way of attracting their attention other than lob a stone through their window. Next day rang again, and eventually get an answer. No appointments available in August. "OK, I'll take the first available in September". "No, the system isn't taking appointments with the nurse for September yet, call again next week."
Been in similar lines of work myself. The fun really starts when you get the forklifts wheels stuck in the drain!
I think it’s good that healthcare may change and be more flexible in the way that we access it, telephone, online etc.
But this is just pulling up the drawbridge. The NHS should be much more resilient than this and to be fair in many places is.
Ice Cream Vans.
Ridiculous levels of noise, (good luck being a night worker wanting to sleep when "just one cornetto" is being played at 120 decibels).
A throwback from the 50's/60's that is completely outdated.
I hate the things. Ban them.
Read this literally as Uncle Dave’s ice cream van pulled up outside my house.
My voicemail. Annoying lengthy instructions about how I can listen to my options again blah blah...just give me the flipping message!
You were probably involved in an accident that wasn't your fault.
No that was my parents.
The brief deluge of rain Meister Manor has just experienced which has just caused the storm drain in my parking place to block and start to flood.
Just spent 15 mins on my hands and knees clearing it out, washed my arm twice and it still smells of ****.
Get Ted to sort out the drainage in the lower field.
Ah, finally, a follow up to that time your lawn was covered in excrement.
That wasn't me. All my excrement gets thrown over the fence into the QPR supporter's garden. Always has done.
That happened to me about a month ago. Did I mention it on here ?
Reminds me of that time I spotted a German shepherd doing its business on my back lawn!
He came back the following week and brought his dog with him

I refer you to my post #214 on this thread:
I swear to you I never saw your original post on this subject shown above, but I apologise to you for my act of accidental PLAGIARISM
Not good to see this coming back given what happened in the 14th century and following on from CV19 earlier this year. How contagious, I mean do you have to respond to a post to catch it, is it safe to read a post from 2 metres away ?
When roving intrepid TV news reporters on location during bad weather don their wellies and head for the deepest bit of flood water they can find - and stand in it. Or find the most exposed part of the promenade in the gale force winds, bracing themselves against the wind "anxiously" glancing over their shoulders as if they are suddenly going to swept out to sea.
Human beings. I mean ****ing he'll. Just had to sit through the end of the one show. Michael Ball being utterly predictable and laughing at every comment he makes. Alex Jones, thick as s***. Talking to Nadia about baking cakes to get through lockdown. Then it's followed by some C class celeb fronting "stories from the square" where our thick as s*** presenter interviews some thick as s**** actresses about their characters in eastenders. Of course I turned it off but why is our species happy to watch such utter drivel?
U ok hun?
Turned it off after watching at least 3 separate pieces? Isn't that the entire show?
About 10 mins while I ate my dinner. Kept hoping it would move to something more interesting but no. The last item was the following TV show which was turned off quickly after about 30 seconds.
Certain gifs, especially Michael Jackson eating popcorn.
Was about to but changed my mind.
The reason for this is that news looks very Soviet if only delivered from the studio. This does lead to some daft things, but it’s the only way to give a sense of place.
Thank you Hugh, yes I can confirm that Storm Donald is extremely windy, conditions passers by have described to me variously as very and ******* windy. If I stand right in the middle of the wind, well, viewers will be quite rightly asking ‘why are you doing that? You are going to get very wet’.
Yep. Just tell me from inside a studio. I will believe you. "There's a storm called Patricia coming in which will batter the West coast before moving across the country." Yep, sounds utterly plausible. I don't need to see you standing in a the gale to believe it.
Same as I don't need you to stand in an empty Downing Street to report on a written statement from the Prime Minister, or to stand in Parliament square to report on a discussion that happened there.
I refuse to believe them unless they stand on the sea wall and get carried away with the waves.
What I find funny though, is when they go, let’s hear from out Asia correspondent, but their Asia correspondent (or whatever correspondent) is not even in the country in question, or even remotely close. They’ll be standing outside somewhere that isn’t remotely related to the country and incident in question, like being geographically closer but still nowhere near somehow makes that more credible
What an absolute cringe inducing, unfunny, pointless c*nt.
Agreed 100%. The first time was faintly amusing for half a second. But it's the cretins who have bought / streamed / clicked on his 'music' for the third year running who are equally to blame.
