Phone companies, I'm trying to transfer my mobile # to a different provider and it has been nothing but a living nightmare so far and will probably continue to be. For something that looks simple on paper, it's actually a living nightmare. The operators aren't helpful and are very hard to understand, the hold music sounds like nails against a chalkboard and no one wants to help.

When Telecom Australia's monopoly was broken up in the 1990s, new kid Optus (before the chongs bought it) went out of their way to make a splash with exceedingly courteous staff and red carpet treatment to prospective customers etc etc etc. Now it's just a whole bunch of arrogant providers piggy backing on two or three networks. They're all worms.

I can totally understand. I'm not sure who it is or if it's a tele marketer but someone keeps calling me on a private number inbetween 1 and 5 in the morning, some I don't get the chance to answer and some when I answer all I can hear is heavy breathing "non sexual.

It's funny when you start laughing, whoever it is sounds like their breathing patterns get angry :lol:

'Welcome to Microsoft! The company where we push our stuff on you and dictate what happens to your own drives, and your consumer choices don't mean crap!"

Yeah, while on Windows; my Dad was getting the s&#t's with them when he thought he had lost his project because his Win 10 laptop just decided to start the automatic update without any prompt and restarted the computer. That was the last straw on that computer with me and I leaped into the registry to disable the automatic updates, since Microsoft had deliberately ridded that option from the average user's eye.

  • People that vandalise currently under constructed footpaths.
  • People that own dogs that leave their gates open, and also the dog being let free because of the gate being open
  • People that pretend that the pandemic is over even though it clearly isn't. Kind of feel sorry that Dan had to reintroduce lockdowns for those suburbs in the COVID hotspots which is quite a bummer for those who did the right thing :(

An iconic attraction in my area, Carribean Gardens market closing permanently, they say it is unviable to reopen. Used to be able to walk out with some bootleg DVD's in a brown paper bag.

I'm starting to wonder if bus drivers hate police and if they do they are obviously doing something wrong like driving under the influence etc, or people that know more about the engine they are controlling than them, it's a bit susspect. Police help out good people I am 100% sure of that.

If you have some sort of gripe with bus drivers, why are you here?

I don't I like bus drivers alot, they seem to have a gripe with me. I've worked on there engines. Oh and I've found my M44 friend I was looking for. Just because people have differences of opinions and there are plenty on this website doesn't mean they have a gripe. 2 of my brother's own a bus company and 1 other is a private bus driver. You can't say anything thease days without someone being offended.

Good Grief! some of the people on Facebook commenting on the local papers Facebook page are questionable people to say the least, every time something "COVID" comes up it is the same cesspool of people commenting again, again and again that this is all a hoax, it is fake and everyone is immune to it and the government is using this to control people.

This is probably one of the few times I'd be for the media to block these idiots off their pages to prevent misinformation but then they will just go ahead & proclaim their the ones in the right and are being censored unfairly.

Older people and people with weaker immune systems are not immune to pneumonia that's what it is, not the government controlling us China purposely disrupting the world economy.

They're not above reproach. You can still be into transport and disagree with the actions of some bus drivers.

Wait till you can't breathe properly and your sick for at least two weeks, then you'll know what it feels like to have the virus.

I actually never gotten the virus mainly because there was no one to get it from but i was sick recently, I have been able to breathe though, apparently it might have been a stress reaction for me. I've been making sure i can breathe to make sure i don't have the virus because the coronavirus mainly affects your respitory system. So therefore when i was sick i didn't get tested because the virus is a respiratory disease...
