What made you UNHAPPY today!


Recommended Posts

Applied to a dog shelter Wednesday last week and they confirmed receipt same day, yet didn't hear back at all. Sent off 3 chase up emails, as well as a Facebook message. Nothing.

Come out of a meeting today and see an email saying "The dog has visitors on Sunday - we will let you know should she still be needing a home after the meet and greet"

Well if you bloody organised yourself better that could've been me!
Now I know they are a charity/rescue, but the other 2 I applied to around the same time have already approved me for a dog, and have booked visits within 5 days of my original application.

Only reason I'm annoyed is because she is the only dog of her breed in the south of the UK of that age available, so not exactly an easy replacement should it fall through

Hi Mark,

What breed are looking for and what age?  Sorry you had trouble with the rescue/shelter facility.

I"m a breeder and here's a link to my 7 weeks old litter of Miniature American Shepherds.  2 of my dogs are in Norfolk-most are USA and some in Canada.  These are all spoken for, but thought you might find them interesting.  Only breed when we can better our breed - not for money.  Real Breeders don't make money.  They make better, happier dogs and guarantee them for their lifetime.

Perhaps need to make as well as design👍

No money in making I'm afraid. 

The best money is to be made in the cheap furniture believe it or not.

Not bossed about by anyone other than myself. Work damn hard and enjoy the benefits of it.

Funnily enough actually not - for a communications company installing the power into green roadside cabinets you see in verges 👍

Yes - everything is about cheap and volume - that is indeed where some money is.

however Mark - do not lose sight of the Uber rich who will spend obscene sums for something bespoke and unique. Quality and class sells to this niche. I’ve a couple of fantastic customers in this area - they never ask the price - they only want the best and want it absolutely spot on and perfect.

After 25 years of dealing with them 80% are a pain in the arse.  And if they're Greek they're even more difficult.

I get that - I’m probably very lucky with the client base I have. I still need to sort out a bloody bell in a tower that needs to bong from a smartphone......

RANT MODE ON :angry:

Phoning a Customer Services number only to be asked by an automatic answering system why you are calling and then being told to follow the link just sent to your mobile which you find out just directs you to online chat to try to get an issue resolved by someone out in India without a clue who just reads from a standard script.

Why can’t I just simply speak to someone rather than spend hours typing on a keyboard:wallbash:

Vodafone your customer service stinks. After over 20 years with you it’s time to say goodbye! :2guns:

Unhappy, this is bloody unhappy. Corona firkin virus. Offshore 4 weeks, due home, only to be informed most of the world now in lockdown, relief crews stuck all over the world in no fly zones and cant get into Qatar. Us guys, (read couple of thousand crew members over all the platforms) have to stay here, no end of rota home time. You are now expected to stay for six weeks from the start of your rota, you will then be shipped to a hotel in Doha where you will be kept in seclusion for a week to prevent any cross infection. You will then be shipped back offshore for a further six weeks. This pattern will continue until such time as the Qatari government deems it safe to cancel the current two week quarantine period in country and allow people movement through heliports and airports without fear of contamination. Ferkin great.

The other ball breaker is while the guys employed directly by the operating company, are paid double time on already astronomical wages, and their reliefs who are stuck at home still get paid, us the contractors who keep these installations running get sod all  butbasic pay for the extra time. That's fine some would say. Yes, if we were all on the same deal. Our reliefs stuck at home for 3/6 months, get nothing, zilch. Parity between the workforce. Sod off. We are all expected just to grin and bare it. If for example you have a wedding planned, yes we will get you home (as long as your destination is accepting flights) but at the end of the virus problem, you just might not have a job to come back to. Compassion my arse.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Wrong thread John and just down tools and tell them to fook off till they treat you right. Not as if they can replace you contractors easily is it?

aaaaaaaaaaand we are confined at home for (at least) two weeks here in France... and then I reckon probably a couple more after that ...

(I suspect almost everybody already had a look at that page as it proved to be quite popular but in case some of you missed it, here an interesting reading about the covid19 ... https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca)

Good luck guys! :)

My son who is now a nurse as is his partner, are unable to find a place to buy any food. They are working shift work and are finding it difficult to get to the shops.

Even if they do, there is nothing on the shelves.

We're now looking at the stuff we have in the cupboard and pantry and looking at taking some stuff up to him on the weekend.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
