    Obviously viruses aren't compatible with earlier generations of mobile telephone technology?

    Something UEA just posted in another thread about people moving next to flight paths and then moaning reminded me of this I saw in my next door app recently:

    I can 100% confirm the planes are just returning to normal, but this poor lady seems to have forgotten she lives under a flight path, and that Covid happened.

    Someone bleating on about the speed of traffic and damage to parked cars from busses on Nextdoor the other day. Demanding people sign a petition for traffic calming measures to be introduced. She's only got 40 odd signatures so far and the petition has been up for months. Probably beacuse it' moronic proposal.

    It's a main arterial route, it's chaos when theres even a whiff of roadworks and all the residential side roads get the problems instead. Last time I pointed out the stupidity of calling for speedbumps and their like, naming increased noise, pollution wear and tear and problems for emergency vechicles, I got banned from nextdoor. I presume there's some sort of have to be a horses arse qualification that I've failed.
    Need less to say, I simply left a sad face emoji.

    You got banned? :D

    What is ‘nextdoor’? Is the old ‘Up my street’?

    It’s a mechanism for old people to introduce themselves and tell you they’re pleased to be here and how long they’ve lived in the area, for everyone else to moan about petty stuff, but in the main for you to be targeted by adds that are designed to look like genuine posts with every product priced at an odd figure.

    It's decent for getting recomendations for plumbers & builders etc or to find out what's causing the latest traffic jam or why police have cordened off an area rouind the corner, but that's just about it.

    Meister Manor is under the flightpath for Northolt air base so we get all sorts at all times of the day and night. We've had a coupel of Apaches recently. But that does appear to be a Nextdoor theme in other less well heeled areas.

    Two things about this person make me want to kick the cat, (I won't).

    1. The moronic message.
    2. The use of facebook avatars which you know look nothing like the horrific person behind it.

    Ok it's the local rag *but* I'm convinced this story was lifted from the various FB groups...

    That's the worst part of it. The "nasty" comments were removed to avoid hurting her feelings. This is the result of non competitive sports days.

    I truly hope that everybody used the outage as an excuse to go for a few post work beers and then get home telling the missus that you messaged her to say you’d be late...not your fault she didn’t get it

    I agree that this coffee is really good but I think Lorna needs to get out more if she nearly wept over it.

    To be fair I once had an emotional experience eating a pie from a kiosk in Rotherham football ground. Still brings a wistful sigh thinking about the little meaty fellow.

    I have also been close to tears with some of the halftime delicacies sampled over the years.

    Next Door is the digital equivalent of doorstep gossiping and over the garden fence “keep up with the Jones’s “ humble bragging .

    That’s a Pepperami wrapper no ?

    Her cheating husband must have an unusually shaped p3nis. She should probably leave him .

    Carlos and Bianca live just north of Barcelona on the beautiful Costa Brava. However, Carlos finds that it can get a little warm in the summer.

    ‘We are looking to spend summers somewhere cooler. We have a budget of £200,000 for a holiday home and hope to find a one-bedroom flat in Hemel Hempstead’.

    However, I am actually one of those annoying people who likes Great Britain because it’s lush and green and therefore welcomes the rain.

    It's not the rain that is the problem for me in GB. It's the near-relentless cloud.
