People who turn the video camera off during workplace Zoom meetings.

 

Precious arseholes. 

 

I'm not going to leave the camera on when I'm still in bed on a video call though, am I? :lol:

 

Anyone who doesn't have their camera on is clearly up to no good and just doesn't want to be seen. Not showered, not dressed, taking a shite, etc.

No, of course not, but my initial assumption was the ducks were getting a scran, bread or the like...

Last week I packed my garden waste bin full with leaves which had blown into my garden.  Now there's masses there again. They come from trees on the council owned land just up the road. At one time the council used to clear up the leaves, but have decided it's better just to leave them to blow into into folks gardens and have them dispose of them, in the brown bins they pay for the council extra to empty. It a bloody racket.

Some misguided residents in the Grange are gathering and bagging the leaves from the pavements on behalf of the CeC! The Council uplift the filled bags. We can spaff money on vanity projects like Spaces for people and loss making trams but can't clear the leaves.

The pavements in the area are a shambles. Like a skating rink at time with the leaves. The gutters are clogged, too.

I’m waiting on them telling people, who don’t have a tree in their garden, that they can’t put leaves that have blown into their gardens into their grey bins. Many people with small gardens with little or nothing growing, don’t have brown bins.

Years gone by my back garden used to flood every Autumn. Combination of a broken drain, leaves clogging the nearby drains and heavy rain would cause this every year.

Ignored our complaints bar year two when they dropped off 50 sandbags that were supposedly to protect me and my neighbours property.....in the wrong street. 

Needed at least 5 times this.

And year 4 when the drain cleaning truck actually arrived.....a week before Christmas. 

5 years to finally locate broken drain and fix....a quick drop of dye found it apparently in just a few minutes.

 

My back garden was ruined by then and the brick work is falling apart.

Councils answer....."flooding caused by water draining off nearby land.....here's our solicitors number....go **** yerself".

The latest road closure proposals by the cycle council is quite incredible . For some reason I can’t copy and paste it but it’s worth reading and trying to understand just exactly how the city will allow vehicles to actually move through the city . 
 

I read it on the Edinburgh live site

Feckers that pull out in front of you then proceed to go half the speed limit, slam there brakes on every time a car passes on the opposite side of the road and at a slightest bend in the road

7.40am this morning on my usual road to work.  It's still pretty dark, some really heavy drizzly rain, loads of spray.  I suddenly hear an engine noise next to me.  Some prick in a dark grey Mondeo had started overtaking me with no lights on.  I flashed the p*ick and so did a couple of passing trucks on the opposite side.  The thing is, because of the rain and the spray, within a couple of seconds I couldn't even see him.  This still didn't prompt him to put his lights on.  

 

What goes through these people's minds?  "Oh **** I'm late, I really don't have the time to turn a nob and put these lights on this morning, that's one second off my driving time".

The CeC are taking advantage of their Covid powers to steamroller these allegedly temporary measures through. If you look at some of the street furniture they have introduced they don't look temporary to me. They are using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut in my opinion. Is there any evidence that these measures have increased cycling and walking? I appreciate something has to be done to reduce pollution but these ill-thought out measures are driven by the vanity aspirations of the SNP and their Labour lapdog coalition partners.

 

It will be very difficult to find a candidate worthy of a vote at the next Council elections!

The amount of drivers without lights on lately when it's got dark has been mad. Quite a few cyclists as well. It always seems to be the dark cars and cyclists with dark clothing.

Is there not a case for making the wearing of hi viz mandatory for cyclists?

Tesco today.

 

There are massive arrows on the aisle floors to show where you queue for the checkout yet folk still try to act silly buggers and just cut in.

And apparently if I point this out to you ya dozey prick its my fault as well.

 

I hope one of your many microwave meals burns the roof of your mouth and gives you diarrhea.....which is probably quite likely.

Well, the first mistake you made was going into Tesco. The second was looking for common sense in the average punter.

On the subject of professional footballers - why the hell does the player preparing to take a corner actually spend several seconds carefully placing the ball exactly 4 inches outside the quarter ?   Are they really so thick that they actually believe their cross will be more accurate if they steal a few inches ? 

 

In Hearts case, pretty much every corner is wasted anyway so what's the point ?

And they pull their socks up and over their knees , maybe has an impact on the flight of the ball? , followed by a sign , usually two arms held aloft* , to signal where it’s going , when in fact he’s telling the keeper he’ll be needing to reach up to catch the ineffective cross he’s about to do . 

 

 

*meant to be a signal as to what they’ve practised in training , piss off they’re not that good

The corner thing annoys me, too. Should do away with the quadrant and just take it from the edge of the corner/byeline angle.

Passed one of those clown cyclists on Lanark Road the other day who wear big cameras on their helmets (oo matron)

but this guy also had a yellow high viz jacket that said something like - please be polite to cyclists or similar but was in this format 

 

please be 

POLITE

to cyclists

 

Impersonating a police officer as far as I'm concerned !!

Starting to notice some redirects creeping into JKB, which is getting annoying.  Tried to click 2 separate threads on the Console Talk section of The Shed and instead got directed to: https://www.icmarkets.eu/eu/en  

Please don't click the link, it's some ForEx trading shite, but that's where I was getting taken to.

 

Mods, have you noticed anything?  Maybe one for @davemclaren?

Nothing wrong with having the camera off at all. No need to have it on all the time, as you say if it was in the office and wasn't a formal meeting you would just pick up the phone. I find most folk turn off their camera during a meeting when they're not speaking - unless it's only a small meeting - which is fine by me.

The track and trace people 🤬 

 

Mrs IJ, baby IJ, and myself are all currently fighting coronavirus. You fill out an online form for every positive test and the people in your household all get named on the form so we've all inadvertently been named 3 times each on our respective forms.

 

For some reason, the software the track and trace people have thinks that there's 3 IJ's to call, along with 3 Mrs IJ's and Baby IJ's. Polite as she is my Mrs spoke with them 3 times on Saturday and then they started calling me. I politely told them to beat it. Then again, and again. The phone keeps ringing and there's no end to their very polite voicemails. Or it kept ringing until I blocked their number anyway. What's wrong with these people? How do they think it's ok to constantly harass 2 covid sufferers? It's been a bloody horrendous week that we've just managed to keep our heads up and look after the kids through and those morons are are trying to ask us for the same information 9 times over!
