Modern cars with searchlight power and quantity like a Christmas tree of brake lights, and feckin selfish bastards who wont use their hand brake at traffic lights. I have light sensitive eyes due to my medication - it hurts. I sit there with my eyes closed.

Cars speeding past my house. We recently got the speed limit reduced from 60 to 40. Not that anyone takes any fecking notice.

The budget - my national insurance will be going up.

Doc, you need an air rifle to take those brake lights out.

I should have kept my trap shut last week when I was saying that eBay was not all bad and only a couple of my almost 450 transactions had gone bad. I got a huge bargain on a DAB tuner last night and within 90 seconds of paying for it (which I always do as soon I've "won" anything) I got a message from the vendor that unfortunately said tuner was damaged in a house move and eBay wouldn't let her remove the listing. I'm waiting for it to be relisted.

Quite trivial really, and hardly worth worrying about BUT people who don't leave me feedback on Ebay really pisses me right off.

The last 4 items I've sold on Ebay have not resulted in any feedback whatsoever from the 4 buyers. All 4 buyers have received positive feedback from me, and I went the extra mile with regards communications, super fast despatch, tracking numbers, advice etc. So far nothing back in return. As I say hardly the most important thing in my life, but it's just poor form, very irritating, and damn rude.

So if you've recently bought a Creek integrated amp, a Creek headphone amp, a fishtank with water filter, or a digital picture frame from someone in the Manchester area pull your sodding finger out.

2 or 3 pages back I was complaining of exactly the opposite, vendors who don't give feedback. :lol:
