Rant thread

Recommended Posts

Finally, I have my new phone.

I have saved like a miser for 2 months, and I finally have a new Galaxy A40, Don't criticise it, It has a great camera for the price, and as Samsung are withdrawing the A40, I got £20 off.

Now all I need to do is find a new flat, as my scuzzy landlord has served me with a sec 21 because he/she thinks they can sell it with a huge patch of black mold in the bedroom, where an upstairs flats water tank over flowed 2 years ago, and it took their landlord 6 months to replace it.

More of a moan than a rant and in all honesty a real irrelevance. Charity fund raising is great and well done to everyone who contributed to Sport Relief last night. The short piece on bbc news this morning to let people know how much of a success it was didn't include one clip of any sport or sportspeople. Just dancers, comedians, singers and celebrities.

I got told off by my owner by moaning that I thought it would be about sport not singing and dancing.

Now you mention it I noticed that too. Now it just seems like another Comic Relief.

Thieves have broken into the local hospice shops warehouse. They have stolen goods and the van which in turn was donated following a similar theft in 2018.

Hanging is too good for them.

I have found out why my Landlord wants the property back. He is dying, and wants to move back from France to his first purchase in the UK, my flat. I hope he realises my next door neighbour is dying of 3 types of cancer. It will really lower the house prices in this block when that gets out.

He has postponed my Section 21 under the current situation, and that gives me time to find a deposit for a new flat that I have seen, that has been taken off the market, due to the situation, I really hope I can get the money off the council to help me, as I think the flat that I saw was the third best Place I have ever seen.*

(* The best place was the house my -ex- Partner bought, and persuaded to buy, and the 3 bed flat that my daughter still loves, even though she was only 20-40 months old, she is now 11yo).

I'm on a teleconference now, over 30 participants, the group organising refuse to use videoconferencing. ONE person has their phone right under their nose and refuses to put it on mute. It's like Darth Vader after a good workout and they simply refuse to put themselves on mute regardless of being asked repeatedly.

As it's a rubbish teleconferencing solution, they can't see who it is or do a centralised mute.

And also, because it's a rubbish solution, we were hearing "(name) has joined" and "(name) has left" throughout, again because people refuse to dial in on time.

Yet they STILL will not move to use video or a better platform despite us pleading with them.

Now I'm on another one and someone's dialling in from a tube station and refusing to mute themselves.

I feel your pain with that. There is nothing more infuriating than talking and being constantly interrupted by people leaving and joining.

One of the AA Groups I am on has organised a WhatsApp group, first week was chaos, second week was much better organised, 3rd week was practically dead.

Very annoyed this morning! Woken up to the news that my favourite burger van has been banned from the city centre because "it has an adverse effect on the overall character of the city centre".

Its been there for almost 30 ###### years!! Mr Spud is one of the most loved businesses in the city centre, always queues waiting, really friendly people that run it, it's a sodding institution in hull!! Anyone who has come to Hull on the train should know it, it sits (well used to) outside the main entrance to the station.

Recently council have been banning all the food venders in the city centre and giving that same ###### reason. Every city in Britain, every city in the ###### world has food vendors and it does not have an adverse effect on the character, it adds to the character, adds to the sounds and smells of the place, it certainly does not make it worse!!! 

Hull City centre has been made into a bland, dull, boring hole by this joke of a council. Yeah, don't bother tackling the spice zombies, Street drinkers and heroin addicts shooting up in the phone box outside waterstones in view of little kids, no they're not the problem, no, everyone's favourite burger/jacket Spud van is the problem. Is it cos they don't sell ###### caviar?? stupid council ponces!!!!! Posh #####!!!!!! 

I'm off to go burn down City Hall..... 😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠

How could anything, up to and including chemical warfare, have an adverse effect on Hull city centre?

Chemical warfare would at least bring a bit of character to the place and wipe out a few of the smackheads as well. 

Same thing happened to a coffee van in the city centre, same ###### claims that it was a bad image for the city. A lot of people saying it's underhand tactics to try to get them to move into a new food hall that's opening soon. No one wants this new food hall, haven't heard anyone say they're gonna go in it, it's just gonna be a load of overpriced, artisan, pretentious, hipster food and I can guarantee right now it will close down in just a few years, either that or it will go the same way as the indoor Market and half the units will be empty and the place will be completely dead. 

Council are killing the city centre. I don't know what they think this city is. Ever since city of culture they seem to think the place is of a higher class than it is. They need to realise this is one of the most working class cities in Britain and accommodate their residents rather than thinking they can attract people from outside in. Yeah they could make more money from tourism but they are also losing so much from their own people sodding off to other cities to spend. 

No wonder so many people don't even go shopping in the city now, it's amazing the amount of people that say they prefer to travel an hour to Leeds, Sheffield or York to shop.

There is a place like that near me. Full of pretentious tossers.

I am there a few times a week.

That reminds me of what people said about Manchester city centre after the bombing in the 70s (I think). It had improved the city centre more in one afternoon than the council had in 50 years.

1996 actually. The Arndale was the 2nd most hideous shopping centre in England, just behind Bullring, Birmingham.

The Arndale market always smelled odd. Not Drug odd, just shabby meat odd, the Food Market was ok.

Thanks for the correction. I'm amazed it was that recent!

I never liked the Arndale. I found it a boring, unimaginative piece of architecture (sic). I much preferred the old Cannon Street with its many short narrow side streets full of bespoke tailors. Somewhere near there was the notorious Liston's Bar. Sadly I was too young to ever get in it before it was destroyed to make way for the Arndale.

I am now convinced we're in the end-times. This is another sign that civilisation is breaking down.

It's like making a pork-pie smoothie. Just wrong.

Also, it's jam then cream. Heathens...
