I thought the traffic in Penzance was particularly light on Thursday.

Punters expecting you to speed up to get them to the station in time, because they booked the car too late and took forever to come out.

Not on your f***ing nelly sunshine. [-X

Before we finally decided to ditch cabfind a few year ago I did one for them from an address locally to Cambridge railway station 05.00 am in the morning. He got quite nasty with me because it turns out he had to start work at 06.00 and was used to getting PH drivers from Peterborough who would do 90mph all the way to get him there on time. It was quite unusual for cabfind to offer us a local job they normally would never offer us anything less than 30 miles away but as I found out they had loads of local work but always offered it to an out of town firm to boost the price! :roll:

It's been a gripe for quite a while rather than just today, and thankfully someone who has the power to sort it reminded those giving me the gripe that they indeed do need to sort it.

And that's scuffy MPs looking like Stig of the Dump appearing in the House of Commons via video link.

Just because they aren't actually in the House doesn't mean they shouldn't respect the rules of dress in the House.

So thank you Mr Speaker. =D>

We had a memo last May regarding dress code for Council meetings but a couple of them seem to need a reminder.

And they were moaning about it.

Just happy that health and care workers have a better work ethic than some teachers.
