Vent your angst – what first world problem have you faced this week?
After trawling round the Cirencester store on Sunday, it would seem that Waitrose do not stock free range turkeys in the stores. You have to order them online and then pick them up at the store a couple of days before Christmas. And what’s more, you don’t even pay for them when you order them, you have to queue to pick it up and then queue at the checkout to pay for it. Honestly, can you imagine?Posted 5 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Neals yard dairy’s online shop doesn’t have exactly the selection of cheeses that i want for my Christmas cheeseboard on one of their pre selections.
I can get 2 out of three several ways but then the third isn’t right.
I’m either going to have to phone them and see if they can change one out, or go up there in person and sort it out directly.Posted 5 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Worrying how long it would take me to get out of the SECC’s carpark last night after seeing Jeff Wayne’s War of The Worlds.
Would it take me 10 minutes or 15 minutes?
That’s not too bad, some people died of hunger in the queue after the Muse gig. Y U no take money on way in, dicks?Posted 5 years agosugdenrMember
Had open a Payal dispute to get refund for Evans special offer they had run out of stock, I mean honestly Cycle Surgery automatically refunded my paypal payment when I missed the boat on the Bonty tyre offer….

I can’t find the manual for our wireless shower control unit & the batteries need changing.
Our town post office is closed “due to unforeseen circumstances” & I need to send cards to France.
The LED lamps for our bathroom won’t be here until after Christmas.
Its very cold in my garage & the heater wasn’t powerful enough to keep my glass of Rioja just so while I fitted a new chain on my fixie.
Our food processor failed big time while making beef rissoles & the choice of replacements is bewildering!

After dropping my daughter at school this evening, I will have a 20 minute wait before the start of the school play. There is no mobile phone signal or WiFi in the school hall, and what passes for mulled wine served in the temporary bar in the school canteen can barely be deemed drinkable. The headmaster and parent-governors seem unwilling to address my concerns – to whom can I turn for solace?Posted 5 years agomarsdenmanMember
Don’t, just don’t, get me starting on freaking inkjet printers, their ability to drink ink and there predisposition to not recognise 2 x new cartridges (of the same colour) = a trip to town. For no good reason.
As if it was enough to have had 4 days without the Gaggia at home, poor thing expired.
Fortunately, the new one (thanks to the PSA thread) has arrived and appears to perform it’s task well 🙂Posted 5 years agotomtomthepiperssonSubscriber
Deciding whether to give our cleaner cash or wine & chocolates this Christmas.
Is cash too impersonal? Wine seems a better choice. But red or white? Maybe a nice Rioja. Or a Chablis. What if she doesn’t drink? Dark or milk chocolate? Maybe truffles?
Oh bloody hell… need a lie down.Posted 5 years ago
