 Post subject: Thought for the day #784
PostPosted: Thu Mar 27, 2008 1:43 am 
Why do those security codes on the back of credit cards have 7 numbers, when you're only ever asked for the last 3? :eh?

Sod's law says that if you drop a slice of buttered toast it always lands butter side down. And we all know that cats always land on their feet. So if you stuck a slice of toast (butter side up) to a cat's paws and dropped it what would happen? :?

you should drop the bread on the floor and then butter it.

Why when on a train, plane etc do they announce that you should make sure you have all your personal belongings with you? Your belongings are personal.

Why, when at a checkout does the salesperson ask you to enter your PIN number? I'm supposed to enter my Personal Identification Number number am I?

These little things furrow my brow.

Why in a store when you are paying and holding out a £20 note they ask are you paying cash?

And when you pay by card why do they hand your card and receipt to you and tell you it's your card and receipt??

AAAARGHH!!!!! one of my personal pet hates.. pleonasms... tautological redundancy, the use of more words than are necessary to try and over emphasise a point.

One of the chief execs of a (hereby un-named) organisation I do a magazine for writes this way ALL the time...

'speaking from past experience'... what other kind of fecking experience is there eh?

'The end result' what? as opposed to the 'start result'?

'Giving a rough estimate'... is there any other kind? is an 'exact estimate' no longer an estimate or what?

next time he wants to look at the 'actual facts' (as opposed to the 'made up facts') then i'm going to 'shout loudly' at him come to a 'complete stop'.


grrr

I was in a shop the other day and bought a DVD for 4.99, the assistant took my £20 pound note and in front of everybody held it up to the light and proclaimed " i've got to check" So when she handed me my change i held the £10 pound and £5 pound note up to the light and and bit the 1p coin and proclaimed "me too". Chuckles from behind.

yeah well no offence to shop assistants, they got a job to do but its so demeaning in front of a queue. This morning i had an early start, drove down to harrogate stopped off for diesel, i was the only car on the forecourt and the young girl actually said to me " what pump please" I replied "that will be no.1 as i'm the only one out there", then she asked for my reg. which was written in bold letters on my fuel card. :shock:

Oh dear... I handed over a £20 note today for a few things that came to about £5 & I was asked, "Don't you have anything smaller?" I said, "If I did, I'd probably use that, really, wouldn't I?"

I know I shouldn't snap at them, but it's common sense. She shoved my purchases into a carrier bag with quite unnecessary force :roll:

This bugs me as well - the light thing catches up with itself eventually and I spend the first few fays following each 'change' with half my clocks saying one thing and half saying the other so I don't know where the hell I am.

As for Robson Greene..the only possible reason for his existence can be so that he can hang about with with Mark Benton and make him look like a better actor.
