    @ckn this thread may sit better in the Australian page now…

    Rd 20 was the equally least competitive NRL week when considering fixtures won by 12 or less and then 18 or less.

    NRL spectators were spared the opportunity of an exciting encounter between first and second placed teams this weekend, seeing the winners victorious by an uneventful 27 point margin.

    After a brief hiatus, the NRL leads into the last 5 rounds coming off one of its least competitive rounds of the season.

    Will move now. 🙂

  2. In addition to above. If you have a chip on your shoulder about a poster, maybe about whether they got a fact wrong, then let it drop once you’ve publicly grumbled about it. If you demand an apology for someone having an opinion WITHIN THE RULES OF THE FORUM and you don’t get it then you’ll just wind us up if you push for that apology across multiple threads.

    Go out, have a walk, maybe even go watch some rugby somewhere.

  3. I got a bottle of Laphroaig 16y/o for myself as a "reward" for a work anniversary. Lovely stuff, probably the most rounded of the Laphroaigs you can get.

    They also do a nice Port & Wine cask version that's very different to other Laphroaigs and certainly worth it if you find one out there.

    Look into doing a Section 75 (credit card) or chargeback (debit card). I had to do a chargeback after a travel agency tried to not refund me for flights purchased last year. The process was pretty straightforward and I got all the money back. 

    Unfortunately because goods were delivered fairly the bank aren't playing with a chargeback as it doesn't fit within the rules. They did help with what to do with a letter before action and a court claim though.

  5. My wife bought stuff from a major clothes store. She returned most of it as it was just rubbish quality in some way or another.

    They promised a refund, didn't pay.

    They said "it's being paid, it's in the system", they didn't.

    Sent them a formal "pay or be sued". They didn't.

    We did a Small Claims Court thing, they didn't bother responding so default judgement being entered against them.

    Now, I think they'll ignore the CCJ. It's under the £600 limit to send in the heavies so I can only send in the County Court bailiffs.

    To send in those bailiffs is an extra £70 or so, anyone know my chances of them actually paying up even with the bailiffs at the door?

  6. One programme we’ve been watching on free time is Scandal. Not exactly new, but new to us. It’s into season 3 and it’s relentless monologues where in reality they’d be told to shut up or people would walk away.

    The so-called “white hat” lead character has more moral flaws than Boris Johnson, makes more mistakes than Chris Grayling and has the loyalty of Nigel Farage, yet she’s treated as this omniscient messiah creature.

    I’ve no idea why we’re still watching it. I think it’s just that the wife likes it and it’s into soap opera territory now

    I still really enjoy Gogglebox. 

    One of the few shows I make time to watch every week, as I know it is guaranteed to give me a good laugh.

    The lack of rotation of the regulars this past year will be due to pandemic restrictions.

    How do you audition new families when we're not allowed into each other's homes?

    I'm just glad they've made the show at all, tbh.

    I still enjoy it as well. Harmless throwaway telly, useful for winding down. Too many other programmes out there now are just relentlessly miserable.
