Little things that irritate you

Anything goes in The Snug, General Discussion's rebellious little brother. An off-topic den of iniquity where any subject not covered elsewhere may be discussed. Well, anything except golf, Star Wars and Arsenal.

Having to swap broadband providers.

Like many others have said, why don’t they look after existing customers? We were paying over £80 for Virgin Media (with tv) but they would not get the price lower than £70.

Found another provider, Vodafone £27 a month, called up to cancel and they offer it to us for £46 a month. What a joke, maybe offer that first?

We’d been with them for about ten years, had done the whole can you reduce the price several times before.

I just don’t get why companies don’t look after their customers, surely they will run out of new customers.

Apologies for the rant.

just signed up to talk talk broadband this morning, 500mb speeds so a significant upgrade from Virgins 100mb.
Signing up took 2 mins, now i'm online to Virgin media trying to cancel, as my contract is up and on a rolling 30 days, i reckon just getting past these poxy advisor bots and speaking to a human will take at least 30 days.
Absolute shower these systems.

Vets - up there with Solicitors, Estate Agents and Lawyers. They have absolutely no care for your animal, they just want to upsell you medicine and get you on long term repeat medical perscriptions for your pet at extortionate prices.

For example - 1 7 K bag of catfood. Cost from the vets = £70.

Same bag from Pet Drugs on line = £38.

You want a percription from the vet so you can go to another place and buy the medicine cheaper - that will be £20 please to print you out a bit of paper. c****!

Currently on holiday in Tenerife and it’s just so happens the wife’s friend is out here with her fella and another couple. We met them for dinner and everything goes fine until we rock up at a pub and it transpires they are all hiding miniature bottles of their favourite spirit in the wives handbags. With no regard to anyone around them they gleefully order soft drinks and then top them up with the spirits they brought along. I was totally mortified and told the wife I won’t be meeting them again whilst on holiday and the wife tells me to lighten up :furrow:

Buy the pizza via the link, after multiple purchases, the ad will go away.

Unfortunately, it will be replaced by gym membership ads or Jacamo.

Well if I buy loads of pizzas I will need Jacomo or the gym, so at least you have given me a plan of action, not the desired one I was looking for, but a plan all the same.

Was told by a vet, that unless medicine is adminstered by a vets, then they can't give you a cert., like for kennels or cat homes during holidays, etc.
