Most of the time when I'm at work it goes like this:

Me: Hi

Them: Hi

Me: Alright?

Them: Yeah I'm good thanks. You?

Me: Yeah I'm good thanks. You?

Them: *walks away*

And then I walk off feeling like a twat for having asked if they're alright twice, but I at least get to feel ok about myself knowing I cared enough to pretend I was interested

People who post stupid boring quotes and wrongly attribute them to celebrities. Where the fuck is Tom Hardy giving all these benign housewife friendly interviews about the state of modern society? Mar

What we have here is a few numpties talking American English on a British English forum. Get your arses down Kwik Save and see if you can find yourself some frozen fucking patties. 

You can tell bAz is from Glasgow that this registers as a 'minor annoyance'.

I've taken up running again to loose a little (re: a lot) of this COVID weight, and I tend to run in this big park across the road. Huge wide open fields with a path going through the middle. 

So I'll be running along on the path and whenever I see someone coming towards me, I always move sideways off the path and at least a meter onto the grass, because I'm sweating and breathing heavily and there's bodily fluids flying everywhere. Obviously, the typical social distancing 6 feet isn't enough to protect against fat fucks galloping away so the extra social distance is warranted.

However, nine times out of ten, the person coming the other way will still move right towards the side of the path that I'm closest too, making my whole diversion pointless and getting them likely covered in my salty gland juices and gob droplets. Pisses me off to no end.

I have recently been selling items on eBay and has been quite a money maker for me, with no problems - Until this week.....

Firslty, sold my Girlfriends brand new GHD straighteners (she knew about it) as she received two at Christmas, they havent been used.

Hair Salon in Manchester brought them and then tried to return them saying that they had been used. When I asked them to confirm the  date stamp on the product (as I took a picture of it before they were sent) they become very defensive, transpires they were trying to return an old product back to me - currently have an open dispute regarding this.

Secondly, sold an item on Wednesday, messaged the buyer thanking them for payment confirmed I would do my best to post the following day (Thursday) depending on my own work commitments but explained that should I not be able to do so, Saturday would be my next day for posting. I received an abrupt message back saying that "They needed it straight away" I nearly responded by saying "Oh, you should have ordered from Amazon using Prime then" but I responded by saying that I do my best to post Thursday. 

Item was posted on Thursday morning, signed for delivery 2nd class (as specified on the listing) and tracking reference provided and delivery status updated on eBay about an hour later. This morning, I recevied another abrupt message at 10:36 saying that they had not recieved and wanted to know where it was? 

I responded by saying that it was posted on Thursday and should be with him soon, I checked the tracking number about an hour later and saw it was signed for 10 minutes AFTER he sent me the message, so he didn't even bother to wait until the post had been delivered this morning before sending the message.

Lastly,  I sold an item for just under £100.00, buyer messaged me about an hour after the auction had ended and said they would pay the following day and asked when it would be posted.

I responded, thanking them for informing me.  Confirmed I would post on Saturday and I would ensure it was suitably packaged on Friday. I usually go to the gym on a Saturday morning and on the way home I pass a Post Office so it was my intention to post then.

Whilst at the gym this morning, at 9:02am I received a message from the buyer, asking when it would posted. I received another message 90 minutes later asking the same question. I finished my work out and responded to confirm that it would be posted today as per previously promised and I would provide the tracking reference and update the delivery status on eBay this afternoon/evening.

Item dropped off at the Post Office at 11:54 and tracking reference uploaded onto eBay at 15:30 this afternoon and positive feedback left.

I am now receiving messages of the buyer saying that they cannot track the item.... 

I have responded to advise it was only posted today and it probably will not have entered their tracking system yet and suggested that it we would only be able to tracking from the next working day (Monday).

I have been polite all the way through but I am starting to loose my paitence, I appreciate it is a lot of money to spend etc. But I have  kept the buyer updated and advised of timescales and set expectations all the way through.

So, it appears that my eBay selling is coming to an end as the above three experiences have really soured the whole thing for me and has really opened my eyes at how dodgy, impatient, unreasonable and downright bloody needy some people can be.

I too have been properly soured on the eBay experience recently. The last three things I've sold (projector, phone, broken iPad) have all had people try to claim issues to get a discount AFTER the auction. The iPad was sold as broken as for parts and the guy complained that it was broken and sold for parts and wanted a discount. 

 

So yeah f**k eBay I say.

It is so frustrating, wondering if people just do not read the full descriptions etc.

My buyer has messaged me again this morning to advise they still cannot track the item using Royal Mail / Parcel Force, despite me responding on Saturday night to advise that probably we would not be able to track until their next working day (Monday) and to allow it the oppertunity to be processed in their tracking system - the fu*k is wrong with some people? 

Can hardly wait till it is delivered to be inundated with messages saying it is broken, damaged or just generally unhappy so can I have a discount. With some people, you just know....

People who post stupid boring quotes and wrongly attribute them to celebrities. Where the fuck¬†is Tom Hardy giving all these benign housewife friendly interviews about the state of modern society? Marilyn Monroe was before her time as well ‚ÄúSome men should spend as much time on their¬†lady as they do on their video¬†games‚ÄĚ Marilyn Monroe.

Odd numbers on adverts in relation to their products and polls. 

"83% of 247 people responded positively" Either round it up, or fuck off.

I also saw one recently that said "72% would recommend this", and that's not the brag they think it is.

The one with Gandhi saying ‚Äúnever back the early kick off‚ÄĚ finally got through to me.¬†

It's amazing how many of those adverts have stats that aren't actually all that impressive.

Dave Gorman has a bit about those advert stats on an episode of Modern Life Is Good-ish, and I’m sure he found one where the percentage that would recommend the product was below 50%

Was it WWE?

Some junkie smashed into me, tried to rob me for my bus ticket (got it because I can't walk far due to a stroke). Fucker smashed me at the back of my head. I'm a big fat guy and this was a skinny runt who hit me with something, from behind. Some other guy roughed him up to get him away.. Feel bit shaken up. I guess people need to get used to an increase in violence from Corona, but still, trying to knick somebodies bus pass?
