    Serves you right for letting that Sunak Guy borrow it for a photo opportunity 😉

    Why does the Evening News publish "tomorrow's racecards"?
    It's a while since it was an evening paper. You can read it at breakfast.
    I have to say it's been a bit better of late, apart from the lifestyle and restaurant guide crap.

    It's quite a novelty when they manage to actually print the racecard for the main meeting of any particular day. Is anyone that bothered about Beverley when Newbury is on?

    First world problems I know, but people who donít split out their zoom number on invites. Itís a pain having to carefully make sure you are dialling onto the correct number. Just split it into standard phone number format, 3,3,4. 123 456 7891 rather than 1234567890.

    Having your flight back to Edinburgh delayed, arriving in the early hours of the morning.

    1. When we transit through baggage reclaim and customs to discover the doors into the main airport are locked. There's no staff anywhere to be seen, no means of communication with the airport, and people have to resort to banging on the door to gain someone's attention in order to exit the airport. I mean, it's not as though our landing was a surprise.

    2. When you then get back to to exit the car park to discover that you've been charged extra for staying beyond your expected exit time. As if the flight delay wasn't bad enough in itself, I'm now being charged for the delay.

    That is not on. What if there was an emergency, with locked doors ?

    I think I will stick to Belhaven this year.

    Well, I say "locked". They are automatic doors and they were closed and wouldn't open. So I'm not sure if locked is technically correct but they were closed and we couldn't open them.

    There were probably fire exits somewhere but we were just focusing on getting the main doors open.

    I assume pairs of swing doors, if so with a serious amount of pressure then they will give. But on first impressions they will appear locked. In an emergency they would open.

    When you phone and book a taxi specifically stating that it needs to take a passenger in a wheelchair, the taxi arrives, the driver takes one look at the wheelchair and produces his exemption certificate saying he canít take a wheelchair due to his bad knees, WTF!!

    Their system will be needing updated or he hasn't told the company he has a certificate.

    People who take eternity to leave feedback on eBay. Very frustrating considering I leave feedback asap after a transaction.

    If the product provided meets expectations that's the transaction completed as far as I'm concerned, cannae be arsed to provide feedback on multiple websites unless a problem has arisen.

    Reminds me of Danny Bhoy's routine about providing feedback for buying underpants in a shop! 😉

    I actually had a hotel asking for feedback before we had arrived.

    If feedback is warranted I don't mind. My most recent one was a product bought online from currys. Product got 10 currys got 1...


    And should have been less than that.

    People who let their dog (I think maybe puppy) out into the garden from about 5.30am every morning. Regular yelping then ensues waking you up, followed by a break in which you are just getting back to sleep when it starts again. This has been going on for a month now.

    Then thereís the folk on Etsy that will only accept a return/exchange if you change/give your feedback as 10/10.

    Can't you get the return and then change your feedback again?

    When news reporters shout questions to MP's as they are leaving their houses or heading into number 10. They very rarely ever answer. Really gets on my goat.

    Nah, I personally think thats out of order C. Feedback is a big part of eBays community. Some sellers won't sell to you unless you have 100% recent feedback. You need to know you can trust the person you're doing a deal with as it can be a real hassle to raise a case through eBay as it generally takes ages to resolve.

    I don't sell stuff on ebay, never been turned down as a buyer anytime I've tried to buy something so it's all good.

    Steal the dog and put it in your garden at that time and see how your neighbor likes it.

    People who are being wilfully stupid about the weather warnings about the heat.

    'Aye but the same people panicking will be sitting next to a pool in Spain with a cocktail next week'.

    Yes. In a country with a whole infrastructure set up to deal with heat. Next to a pool. In a hotel or apartment with tiled floors and built to reflect heat. Not sitting in a carpeted house or office built to retain heat or working exposed on a building site. Even in countries that are built for heat there is an extreme element to 40+ degrees. 70K people died during the 2003 heat wave in Europe.

    Don't even get me started on the 'it was hot in 1976' brigade.
