These stupid photographs people take with someone holding a crap picture frame and the subjects holding little moustaches and lips on the end of sticks, wearing stupid hats. It makes me so angry.

'Funny' moustaches tattooed onto fingers, because telling the same joke over and over for the rest of your life is hilarious.

I've had 3 separate people ask on a tee listing "Hi, I'm X tall and I weigh about Y, how do you think this shirt will fit me?"

All measurements are on the listing. People are idiots

Online shops that don't offer next day delivery. Pretty shocking in this day and age.

online shops that have stores but won't let you take it back to a store. Or shops that refuse a refund, but only allow store credit or exchange.

Anywhere that charges you to pay on card. It doesn't cost per transaction on the card machines does it? Just made up shit to extort more money.

Anywhere which does not have the ability for me to pay on card as well.

Turns out they do get charged per transaction. Still makes me livid having to pay 50p to use my card.

Between 2.75% and 1.5% on average per transaction. Making a living from people using their cards.

while we're on paying with card, fucking black cabs that don't accept cards. It's such a simple thing, no wonder no cunts using them.

Black Cab drivers are the pits.

They've been nicking a decent living for years and not refined or changed their service at all other than rising fares.

Who cares if the driver knows how to get you there off the top of their head or uses a sat nav. Just get me there comfortably, quickly and for reasonable price.

I really find the black cab protests hard to understand. Uber drivers still need private hire driver licences. They still have CRB checks, etc. They're basically just private hire taxis.

TFL set the prices don't they? Not taking cards must be a way to avoid disclosing earnings. I'm sure San advises a few!

Ah yeah fair play, but it must be in conjunction with some Taxi Drivers union. Either way why would anyone pay through the nose for a shitter service than was available?

Yeah it is. I had one cabbie moan the other day that he's had to go back to working 5 day weeks nstead of 3 due to loss of earnings. My heart bled.
