A bit harsh I think with the price.

Where was this Patrick?
We got Harry a new Merida mountain bike from Monster Bikes and he came off a flyer before Christmas and they repaired it for free, very happy with the customer service.

Inverness Bikes on Portland street, usually use Monster, but when it went at the start of Dec, i rang them, the guy said just bring it down, when i got there another guy says was it booked in??
We are booked till the end of Jan,no one would have told you to just bring it down:rolleyes:

Brit on an Antigua Facebook group I follow boasting how he is there on holiday by bluffing that he was a travel agent and travel photographer going on business

Report it to the police.

It's about time we got rid of this "grassing up" stigma and viewed it for what it really is, ie doing every decent person a favour.

Idiots on the train with the mask below the nose and then sniffing and coughing. Moved seats, the next carriage seemed far enough
Someone registering at the hospital yesterday for their covid vaccination didn't have the mask over their nose! I can only assume the staff booking them in were not allowed to tell them to wear it properly!

Neighbour has had an exercise bike delivered, she wasn’t in so I took it in. Come back from work and it’s still in the house. Our lass says it’s too heavy for her to take round and the neighbour hasn’t been round.
Means I’ll have to take it, wouldn’t be too bad but being a young chap delivering a large parcel to his single nifty fifty neighbour just screams a compromising situation.

I don’t need this kind of stress. I’ve seen how it ends up on the internet.

This year is going to be the first time I have watched the 6 nations without friends or family. Even for the restart of the last one we could meet in groups of 6

Be careful if she asks you to fix something under the sink
