The all new "seethe" thread

Recommended Posts

IronJambo

Took a days unpaid leave as an emergency and it turns out that most of my days work was cancelled irrespective. Had I been at work I'd have done half an hour's "work", and even then I literally wouldn't have been doing anything. Days pay lost for not doing work that I didn't have. Raging.

I work in benefits. The benefits I deal with are means tested so your entitlement is determined by your income and capital. No word of a joke, I dealt with two new claims today, one where the couple had £520,000 in the bank (yes over half a million!!!) and the other where the chap earned £70,000 pa. How can these people think they should be entitled to benefits??? I genuinely thought the one with over half a million put a comma in the wrong place and was sure she would only have £5200. Nope, half a chuffing million. 🤬😡😏

 

Never underestimate how greedy and selfish people can be. The world is full of cretins.

Took my car in for its annual service, half a mile down the road on the way home a warning light came on. Drove back to the garage, everyone has gone for the day and nobody could help 😡🤬. Something just needed to be reset but the f**kers in the garage should have done that before I collected the car. 

 

Had the same recently after getting new tires put on the car, no initial warning lights but once I was on the M8 doing 70mph with no turnoff for 5 miles my dash lit up light a bloody xmas tree with the tire pressure warning system. I had no idea if it was not enough air in the tyres, the TPS hadn't been reset, the tyres hadn't been fitted properly or if I actually had a puncture!

Think that annoys me the most about that is why on earth folk would have that kind of money just sat in a current account doing nothing for them.

There's some real charlatans out there posing as mechanics. A mate had a blowout on the M25 and was towed to the nearest garage. A well known chain, where he had new tyre fitted and the wheels balanced. Back on the road and he has a noise coming from his wheels. Takes it to his normal local garage to have it looked at and after a quick spin they lift it on the ramp to have a look and it turns out the wheels buckled.

 

How do you fit a tyre and not notice that?

Exactly. At least spread the risk over a number of different accounts and banks but £520,000 just sitting there doing nothing and then asking for money out the public purse. 🤬

I hoped the light would go off on the way home but no luck then it took me ages to find the reset button. Why the manual didn’t say “it’s in your glove box you eejit” I don’t know 🤷🏼‍♀️.

and that 80k i think is the total for all accounts held by an individual at one banking group. i.e. if two or more banks are owned by the same bank

Some people should should really not be doing the job they actually do. In a restaurant at a golf club today after playing a round. The waitress comes over with a glum face, doesn’t welcome us and is really rude. She then takes our drinks orders, but isn’t happy because our youngest wants milk. She goes away and comes back and says there is no milk. So he settles for an apple juice. Two minutes later, she comes back with two apple juice for him and we tell her that he only wanted one and off she stomps not happy. We’ve now had our food presented to us, but we have to go and get cutlery from another table as she hasn’t given us any. I ordered fish and chips and she gives me two bits of fish and a bowl of beef soup in a basket🤷🏼‍♂️ Off she goes again with a face like fizz to get my chips. We then have to call her over again to say that there is no cheese on my sons cheeseburger...wtf!!!, it’s a cheeseburger. We then get the bill and find that the most expensive thing on it is a ‘build your own burger’ which nobody had🤷🏼‍♂️. There is also three apple juice, which is incredible, as we only had one, even though she tried to wrongly give him two. At this point, my wife loses her shit altogether. She storms over to the counter and the other woman who is there, asks her if she has a question. My wife replies that she has quite a few. Everyone in the place is now watching and the waitress comes over and asks if there is a problem. My wife says to her...’for starters, you are downright rude’🤣 She then points out all the things added which we didn’t have and the waitress storms off into the kitchen. She then comes back and gives us the correct bill and says sorry through gritted teeth, which clearly wasn’t genuine.

 

Some people are in the wrong job🤬🤬🤬
 

 

edit: this was Celebration Golf Club in Orlando, stay well clear of this restaurant, you’ve been warned.

The message I’m getting here is...

 

...golf is shite. 


Seriously though, if you’re working with the public and can’t face it, find another job. In most western countries it’s not that difficult if you’re prepared to put in a bit of effort. There’s a lassie that works in the Margiotta corner shop near me who can’t/won’t greet or talk to customers. Instead, she ignores even the slightest hello, mumbles prices and points at the card reader. I stopped going there on account of her ages ago, thought I’d try again and she was just as bad. I’m not asking for a conversation, just basic courtesy. Needs a job away from people.

This is spades bud, it’s not difficult.

 

Spent an absolute fortune on the round of golf for me and my boys at peak time, plus rental clubs for us all, plus golf buggies. Had a great round with them, only for the whole experience to be ruined by that soor faced git.

 

 

…and golf is definitely not shite😁

I’m trying to get a bet on our game against RC, but I’m in Florida and it’s saying I can’t place a bet, because of gambling restrictions in the USA. I don’t get it tough, as I’m sitting watching my Amazon box with a VPN turned on and it recognises that I’m in the UK, even though I’m in the US. My bet365 seems to know I’m in the USA even though I’m saying I’m in London. Htf does bet365 know where you are and nobody else does when your using a VPN

I always give generously with tips, but if people are friendly and courteous I’ll give a bit more. There was only once before in the US that I haven’t tipped and it was a rude waiter in the Bahama Breeze. I did tip her...4 cents🤣🤣🤣 Was going to leave nothing, but decided to round it up in the hope that she said something, so I could tell her not to spend it all in the same shop🖕

Do some waiters/waitresses deliberately add stuff on to menus in the hope it doesn't get noticed then scoop that extra cash for themselves when the customer pays by cash?

 

I've genuinely had an extra drink added or starter counted twice a little too often on food bill's these last few years and wondered if it was a little scam? Mostly in chain restaurants or wetherspoons type establishments.....I'm not posh enough to eat elsewhere.

The problem is a lot of people don't check their bills as it might make them look cheap and they want to avoid making a scene.  I don't think staff would do it on purpose but they do make mistakes.  I always, always check the bill after being overcharged a couple of times.

Plenty of them other than Bet365 are hot on VPN's. Some will let it slide and then refuse to pay out because you were using one. As already advised though, don't use the App as it'll always know where you are.

edit: this was Celebration Golf Club in Orlando, stay well clear of this restaurant, you’ve been warned.

I had the misfortune of playing Celebration many years ago now. I bought my dad and I a round for his Christmas as we'd heard really great things about it and as regular golfers in the Orlando area at that time, we had never played it. 

 

I turned up wearing a pair of olive/brown patterned shorts. The patterns on them were palm trees (they were Billabong shorts, but dressy enough). I walked by the receptionist who checked us in, a couple of the pros, we ate in the restaurant (with a markedly better experience than you I hasten to add), we were on the practice area for an hour before our tee time (and spoke with a few of the range attendants etc, folks who got you a basket of balls etc)....not a single one of them mentioned my attire, until we reached the starter who politely informed me I would not be able to go on the course wearing "camoflage" shorts. I assured the chap they weren't camo pattern, and that I'd actually played The Old Course wearing these very shorts a few weeks prior, but this guy was having none of it. I had to go back to the pro shop and buy a pair of plain shorts before they'd let me on to play.

 

I was so pissed off for the first 5 holes I couldn't enjoy the course, before calming down and proceeding to shoot a 64 round it, despite it undergoing heavy maintenance. I checked their website on my phone on the way round and there were absolutely no guidelines on their dress code for patterned shorts. They gave us a full refund as I complained loudly at the end of the day but I will always recommend people avoid this place like the plague!

I held a door open for an older middle aged woman in Celebration once, about 20 years ago. She didn’t thank me, but looked straight at me and said “you’re so rude”. To this day I don’t know what I did wrong. Celebration is a weird weird place!

She was a feminist and felt that it was a derogatory act for a man to hold a door open for a woman. Was the head from her pint sticking on her moustache?

Aye, I know what you mean, but it wasn’t like that. She was walking through the door behind me, I just didn’t slam it in her face. We’ll never know the truth of what went through her head in that moment.

Totally agree, I've actually switched back to radio 1 for the breakfast show, she's even worse than Chris Evan's was.

I'm no fan of Zoe Ball but she can't be worse than Evans. I was listening one morning and Jamie Cullum had some new Christmas song which was terrible. Evans played it and then said he had enjoyed it so much that he was going to play it again. And he immediately did. The same shite song twice in a row. Who does that?

She is worse. When she was on radio 1 years ago I quite liked her so I was happy when she got this gig. At the other end, Sara Cox on drive time, this is an excellent programme now, love listening to it, totally recovered from when Jo whiley was on with Simon mayo.

I had the misfortune of playing Celebration many years ago now. I bought my dad and I a round for his Christmas as we'd heard really great things about it and as regular golfers in the Orlando area at that time, we had never played it. 

 

I turned up wearing a pair of olive/brown patterned shorts. The patterns on them were palm trees (they were Billabong shorts, but dressy enough). I walked by the receptionist who checked us in, a couple of the pros, we ate in the restaurant (with a markedly better experience than you I hasten to add), we were on the practice area for an hour before our tee time (and spoke with a few of the range attendants etc, folks who got you a basket of balls etc)....not a single one of them mentioned my attire, until we reached the starter who politely informed me I would not be able to go on the course wearing "camoflage" shorts. I assured the chap they weren't camo pattern, and that I'd actually played The Old Course wearing these very shorts a few weeks prior, but this guy was having none of it. I had to go back to the pro shop and buy a pair of plain shorts before they'd let me on to play.

 

I was so pissed off for the first 5 holes I couldn't enjoy the course, before calming down and proceeding to shoot a 64 round it, despite it undergoing heavy maintenance. I checked their website on my phone on the way round and there were absolutely no guidelines on their dress code for patterned shorts. They gave us a full refund as I complained loudly at the end of the day but I will always recommend people avoid this place like the plague! 

Yup, definitely never recommending the place. I did also have a wee outburst in the Pro shop in front of everyone about the fact they had added on an extra $35 to the price for the round from the price I was quoted when I boooked, because I wasn’t a PGA Pro. I never told anyone at any point that I was…who did the think I was, @irufushi🤷🏼‍♂️

I held a door open for an older middle aged woman in Celebration once, about 20 years ago. She didn’t thank me, but looked straight at me and said “you’re so rude”. To this day I don’t know what I did wrong. Celebration is a weird weird place!

🤣 get over it mate, she’s probably  not thinking about it, as she’s probably potted now.

Do some waiters/waitresses deliberately add stuff on to menus in the hope it doesn't get noticed then scoop that extra cash for themselves when the customer pays by cash?

 

I've genuinely had an extra drink added or starter counted twice a little too often on food bill's these last few years and wondered if it was a little scam? Mostly in chain restaurants or wetherspoons type establishments.....I'm not posh enough to eat elsewhere. 

Wouldn’t surprise me

After walking in the hills this morning, I thought I’d grab a KFC on the way home. Hardly the best or most nutritious food, but hey ho. 
 

Promptly turned on my heels when I saw the fat mess behind the counter sneeze, wipe her dripping conk with her ungloved hand and continue to place her blubbersome hands on everyone’s orders. 
 

Actually, maybe this isn’t a seethe at all. I should have thanked her for reminding me of the reality of such establishments. Good luck to anyone eating at KFC, especially Hermiston Gait!

KFC has got to be one of the worst fast food establishments out there, the food is garbage.

Haha!

 

Sneezer today, far from being on drugs, looked like she’d eaten an entire dealer. Probably brim full of coronavirus, too.

Typical trip to KFC goes along the lines of...

 

"Can I have a bacon and cheese box meal please?" 

"We don't have any bacon or lettuce" 

"Okay just a fillet box meal then"

"What side do you want with that?" 

"Can I have corn on the cob please?"

"We don't have any corn on the cob.  We have beans or coleslaw" 

"Beans?  With a burger?" 

 

"Okay kids, do you want a Krushem?" 

"Sorry, the machine is broken" 

 

"Can I have a latte please?" 

"Sorry, the machine is broken" 

 

Absolute shitehole of an establishment. My kids love their chicken but so always choose to go there.
