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.

How? Isn't it already pretty maxed out due to it being a single track line from Upminster through to Grays, with just a passing loop at Ockendon?

There's also frequent bus links from Lakeside to Grays which has a much more regular service.

Greater Anglia have once again rejected my delay repay claim for when there was a strike, despite me having to actually go in on those days, with an automated "we can't find any evidence you were delayed by 15 minutes or more" response and a "here's a link for an appeal we will never look at".

Piss taking bar stewards.

Major music venues being cloak and dagger about stage/curfew times, and headline acts always arriving on stage late. I appreciate they want to make as much money through beer sales as possible, and you should really try to catch a bit of the support act that you didn't buy the ticket to see, but it's total pot luck knowing when to arrive sometimes.

On the flip side, I'm going to a (smallish) gig on Saturday, and the venue have emailed ticket holders to say the band will be on one hour later than advertised so the England v France game can be screened in the venue beforehand! Win win!
