The 3 strike rule - in the last 24 hours I have accidentally dyed my lovely, fluffy white towels a muddy pink, my kettle had broken and my boiler has bust :mellow: :( <_<

I misread that. 'Accidentally died'? Yeah, that's a bummer.

My recommendation of Steve Finch the other night at the Alma was timely, then! :(

Brilliant - he's coming to mine tonight to try to work out why my pilot light still goes out once a day despite my having paid £860 to AC Wilgar since August! :o

Why are you not asking AC Wilgar to come back and sort the problem, if your paying that sort of money to them?

They've given up on my 25-year-old boiler, after 13 visits (count 'em! I know all the engineers by name!) since August, having replaced the pump, the thermacouple (three times), the programmer (three times - there was a faulty batch of Honeywells), three parts that form the pilot-lighting mechanism, the three-port valve, the overheat stat and the cylinder stat! I've still got the same problem I started with, ie, intermittent heating because of a pilot light that won't stay lit and a timer that's not relaying the correct messages, but they're stumped and say, as I stopped paying them a month back, they can't come out to me anymore unless I agree to have a new boiler installed! Fair enough, but most of the problems except for the past three weeks, have been with the infrastructure, so a new boiler wouldn't have solved that. I'm currently amassing quotes for when the old lady finally does keel over and Steve, one of those who quoted, offered to do a patch-up job until I can afford to action one of them. :(

Architects who work till 10pm, and email you a load of changes just before they go home that negate 99% of the changes you agreed with them the afternoon before, starting their email with the words “A few bits and pieces further to our conversation today”.

About ¾ of the work we’ve done in the last two days is now utterly wasted. And the deadline is still Friday lunch time.

'Post code lottery' I just hate this phrase that has become common vernacular. Really gets me. Everything in life is a 'lottery' ffs. arrgh

Oh and the word debris. Suddenly has become duh brie instead of day brie. Apologies to our colonial friends but can we please just have our language back?

I heard someone at work - someone English - use the word 'burglarize' yesterday. Sadly our office is a firearms free zone, or he may have been murdererised.

I've probably said it before but I can't be bothered trawling through the thread and it's still winding me up. Traffic reports telling us '...closed due to an earlier accident'. NO. IT'S CLOSED DUE TO AN ACCIDENT. The fact it happened in the past is not information that needs to be passed on to us. When the bloody hell else would the accident have happened? Stop it. stop it NOW. If not earlier. :angry:

The common cold :( I had the last one for two months and it evolved into some hideous mutant: viral rash, chest infection and asthma. Am dosing up with Manuka honey and First Defence in readiness for the onslaught.
