All call centre staff are trained to fob you off not help you


Especially those taxi call centres that tell punters their taxi is just around the corner!

it's been 7 weeks since I submitted my DBS and have only a week to go till the temp badge runs out as they issued that 3 weeks before my existing badge ran out so I only got 6 weeks temporary instead of 8

Asked them for my DBS application number so i could check online it's come back as invalid so looks like they never got the form :sad:

Panic shoppers :evil: :twisted:

went to do my weekly shop at about 09.30 supermarket packed on a Monday ! Took 30 minutes to get round then another 40 minutes to get through the checkout No tinned food left at all no frozen vegetables but loads of fresh ones which no one wanted to buy and at least a dozen items I wanted out of stock

They did have loo rolls though :lol:

apparently on Saturday they were sticking pallets full of loo rolls in the aisles

Please tell me that there is a law that allows taxi/ph drivers to beat passengers to death if they are conspiracy theorists.

I've come to the conclusion after the last couple of weeks that under 25's will believe anything.

Hundreds of people walking along the seafront, and loads of joggers.

Why can't they jog and walk near their homes?
