Basically, a few things to bear in mind. If the car next to you is in the 'right only' lane, sort of expect them to throw a left. If there's a black Polo in the rear distance, expect it to be on your bumper in 2 or 3 seconds. If the road is one way, expect a woman in a burqa to drive towards you. Do wait patiently while the car in front stops to chat to a random mate in the street.

Just a few pointers.

Chop Sticks.

Why?

I understand that it was a good idea to use sticks to pick up ones food instead of using hands.

But once forks were invented why carry on using old technology?

Its like uninventing the wheel.

And as for Westeners using them in restaurants its just pretentious showing off.

That moment when the £300+ tracked parcel you were waiting for shows as signed for, with a forged signature and no delivery.

The supplier is still responsible as any arrangement you have is with them and not the courier unless you made other arrangements.

Yeah I know. Also paid for by credit card so covered there. Only just home so not done anything about it yet however.

At least you will not be out of pocket. I had this issue last year although not such a costly purchase. I simply said to the site I'd bought from they had 24 hours to inform me that my purchase was being delivered or provide a complete refund. I was their customer and not a customer of the delivery service. The only contact with the delivery service that I would accept would be If they wanted to send the driver that had alleged a signing had taken place to my door and confirm in person that I had indeed signed then I would accept that and inform the Police that a theft had taken place. They sent another parcel.

Both parcelforce and supplier have now been contacted, albeit by email as they're both closed for contact. Will see what tomorrow brings, but given it's a motorcycle helmet that's gone astray, I'm a bit wary of what might have happened to it if it does turn up, given any damage, even unseen, renders them beyond repair.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Also some of these purchases are sent with branded packaging. Any label that says Bell, Shoei or AGV then they know it is a high value item.

Rather than sending Christmas cards this year, I'm donating to charity. Translation: I can't be bothered writing cards and I'm too tight to buy cards and donate to charity.

People who take up two seats on a busy train then get huffy when asked to move their bags deserve to get charged for both seats.

People who take two seats on the train because they can't fit on one.

Pure greed! The BBC shouldn't touch him with a barge pole now!

He hasn't worked for the BBC for a while now. He walked from the Masterchef Professionals job because of a conflict involving a company he promoted. That's why the programme is now presented by Marcus Wareing instead.

He's presented Saturday Kitchen a couple of times at least over the last few months?
