I`m taking enough medication as it is Smile

I got a call from the hospital at 8pm tonight, asking how I was getting on, this would never have happened if I`d used an NHS hospital Smile

They wouldn't have asked 'how you were,' they'd have asked 'who you were.'

Remote release for my Sony A300 packed up so I bought a new one only to find the camera is faulty not the release. Sad
It's in Classifieds if anyone wants it. (The release not the camera Smile)

They tell you what you want is in aisle 24, but that's full of "Seasonal Products" Sad

Not so much a cause of grumpiness, but a source of mild irritation anyway...

The huge electronic information signs alongside/over major routes. These are very useful in their primary role, providing information about incidents, road closures, road works, severe weather, etc. Where they become a nuisance (in my opinion at least) is when there's nothing to report. Then, rather than simply display nothing, they are used to serve up "helpful" advice to drivers, such as "TIREDNESS KILLS TAKE A BREAK", "CHECK YOUR FUEL", etc. In the first place, I would hope (perhaps in vain) that most drivers can manage without being reminded to check their fuel, or whatever. Secondly, it seems to me that if you're ramming non-essential information into the faces of oncoming drivers, you're in danger of causing a distraction rather than providing a helpful service.

Some of the messages are susceptible to deliberate misunderstanding, of course. "CHECK YOUR FUEL" is one example. Check it for what? How? One which caused a wry smile the first time I saw it, is "CHECK MIRRORS FOR CYCLISTS". Perhaps I should have pulled over and dismantled the door mirrors, just in case a cyclist had become trapped inside? Wink

Speaking of poor grammar, EPZ could do with the help of a proof-reader. See the latest review:

"Sony NEX-6 Mirrorless Camera Review - Daniel Bell gives his verdict on the Sony NEX-6, a new mirrorless camera targeted towards DSLR users with Wi-Fi built in."

How many DSLR users have Wi-Fi built in? Enquiring minds want to know.

'Signing' for a parcel delivery. Do those electronic pad & stylus things EVER work?

After two attempts the courier just rushed off.

I can't see the point of those things, Helen. I've never been able to sign with a recognisable name, let alone a valid signature, and the couriers always say that it doesn't matter. That being so, they could deliver to anybody on the planet and get an "electronic signature" which apparently proves that they've delivered to you. Tongue

I do not remember making one and certainly cannot recall contacting the sender of the e-mail, lady by the name of Georgina K. Pratt

or maybe I am the pratt for not opening the e-mail, might have been the best offer I have had all year ! !

I've got a "Wifey" attachment that is a very good communication device, does that count?
