What made you UNHAPPY today!

The state of the PCB board underneath the shoddy memory back up battery job that someone has done on the vintage ESQ-1 synth that I have just bought.

I've just removed the dead battery, but the copper has peeled away from the PCB and the area is black. So what should have been simple to do if it had been done right before is now a trip to an electronics repairer to see what can be done. :realmad:

It ran out of electric! We had to sit just outside a station for about an hour which was no fun but they fixed it eventually!

It turns out that the train people have 'delay repay' and I'll get my £18.70 fare back!

If it's anything like our service it will probably have a £20 admin fee!

Broke the shifter in my mountain bike while in the middle of a ride. Had to go the rest of the way in 1st gear:(

Bike is a '97 Trek Y-33 (carbon fiber full suspension). This is the first part that has broken, and the bike has needed zero maintenance in 15 years, except for tires, tubes, and brake pads... Though I did replace the fork, rear shock, and seat+post for performance reasons.

Being accused of losing an important parcel at work

Only to have it reappear where I said it'd be cos some tit moved it

An apology for being accused of being an incompetent wanker was not forthcoming

I give up!

My son had trouble with his Holden V6 a week ago with it overheating when he was out having a drive. He pulled the dipstick from the coolant overflow bottle to check the level, but dropped the dipstick in the engine bay. In retrieving it, he has burnt his forearm on the exhaust.

Didn't do anything about and didn't tell anyone. Took himself to hospital today (unbeknown to his mother or myself) and has been admitted due to now having an infected 2nd & 3rd degree burn on his arm which will be debrided tomorrow and will require a skin graft. :(

Walked the corridors of our local hospital for 6 hours yesterday whilst the surgeons spent 5 hours removing a 4 pound tumour from my wifes abdomen. Yes I think unhappy just about describes it. On the other hand the bloody thing is out and she came through the op so I have also got a whole to to be very happy about.

One of our dogs jumped up on my son the other day and put her paw on his donor site on his leg. He stepped back to get away and tripped over the other dog. Put his arms down to save himself when he fell and broke the splint guarding the skin graft and it got torn off his arm. Went to hospital to get it sorted. The doctor in A&E said everything was fine and the graft was intact.

You guessed it. It wasn't. The nurse removed it with the bandage, didn't check and it all went in the bin. He had to see the plastic surgeon the next day as part of his routine check up post surgery etc, and the surgeon abused him, told the nurse to dress it and sent him home. Didn't let him explain.

Jarryd has now lodged a complaint with the hospital.

So he will now end up with a large scar on his arm and another on his leg for nothing. :(

My Great Niece (18m old) standing on the driver's seat of the daily driver Excel as I left in another car, only to get 8 missed calls and a text asking me to call asap by the time I next got to hear my mobile 'phone. Some how the door had locked, they couldn't get her out. I returned home (having told them where the spare set of keys were which did the job of unlocking the passenger door) to find the driver's door handle broken and hanging out of the door.
