when i watch the NI news i’m always wondering what the point is of having outside reporters who i can see are just on the pavement literally right outside the BBC building.
people who comment under opinion pieces and magazine features with ‘how is this news?’ NOT EVERYTHING ON A NEWS SITE IS NEWS.
I’ve got a Birmingham news updates page on Facebook.
Whenever proper news is posted - petrol/diesel cars being banned, for example - there’s always a load of ‘And what’s this got to do with Birmingham?’ underneath it.
Where I live the bus queues are in single file. The bus stop “queues” where people just bunch of and block the entire footpath are the ones who irk me.
Probably IFTTT, I used to have that turn off my WiFi when I left the house and on again when I got home. Was pretty handy.
Nicholas Witchell irks me. The brown nosing little bastard.
That is… I… I don’t know… I have no words.
not using common sense when writing addresses on packages.
“HURR DURR THIS SCOTTISH FLAT NUMBER DOES NOT FIT MY NARROW-MINDED WORLD VIEW OF WHAT AN ADDRESS LOOKS LIKE DURRRR LET ME JUST WRITE SOMETHING COMPLETELY INCOHERENT ON THE PACKAGE SO THE POSTMAN HAS NO FUCKING CLUE WHERE TO DELIVER IT TO. NNNNHGGHHH.”
Currently waiting on two packages that are delayed delivery due to the address not being correct or some shit.
We’ve had things variously delivered to number 27 or number 2 because ‘Apartment 2, 7…’ is far too complex for some.
Was a right nightmare when we first moved in - as it was a new build estate the addresss didn’t exist ‘on the computer’ for months. I had cause to ring Birmingham City Council a week or two back and according to them it still doesn’t exist. “Ok, I’ll have 3 years worth of council tax back please…”
I’M SO ANNOYED!!!
And so irritating when they tell you the address doesn’t exist. As if you’re standing in your house in some alternate dimension.
Yeah I can write my address three different ways:
- 7/5 Fake Street
- 3F1, 7 Fake Street
- Flat 5, 7 Fake Street
Tend to use the first one as at least that way the post will find the right building. Plus its the one my bank understands. The council will only allow the second one in their correspondence though. We regularly get post for different buildings and different streets(!) through our door.
A client has asked me to sort out some design/typesetting for an LP/CD.
They need a sticker that gets put onto the shrink wrap. They’ve given me the text, they want the sticker to be circular They haven’t told me what size. There are standard sizes for such things. It’s not my job to guess.
They want me to do the download code thing. They’ve not told me what it has to say or what size this should be.
The band’s designer had done some sleeve art for the vinyl and sent a PDF. The fonts aren’t embedded. This means that it won’t print properly if neither myself or the printer has the mystery font loaded.
They want me to convert the vinyl sleeve to a digipack CD using that PDF. An LP has a back and front. The CD digipack also has two inside panels. What do they want me to do about that?
I spend half my time asking stupid questions instead of getting the job done and they won’t want to pay me for that time, will they?
In Asdas today some absolute Tory at the self-service shouted EXCUSE ME to get the attention of a staff member. when the staff member came over he told him to scan the rest of his items. I stood and stared in disbelief.
This Twitter feed. Irking me pretty much every hour of every day of the week at the moment.
Spending three months designing various bits of POS for a product launch, only to be told after everything has been signed off and made ready for print that the budget has shrunk considerably, and now I need to do a complete re-design.
People who do not pack as they go at self-service checkouts
Scum. Subhuman scum.
