the exit barriers at EMA drop off failed again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

after traffic queueing trying to get in they finally stuck a woman with a cloth bag on the gate to collect their £3 s bag must have been full in 10 minutes


after 3 hours the airport issued a miss-per alert for her and £2000 in coin



like the collectors on the mersey tolls a few years ago

Mates who ring you when you are abroad asking for you to bring back some duty free goods for them.

They don't ask before you go as that means they would have to pay up front. :-k

Mates who do the same bloody thing again.

Punters not understanding a flight might land on a different day to the one when it took off.

Thankfully experience has told me to double/treble check when a flight lands in the early hours, but they still don't get why I ask and ask again and again.

Drivers who go to a job, discover the punters are a tad iffy and instead of calling the office to bin off the job, just get it reissued so some poor other sod gets the iffy punters.

Workers united my arse.
