Confiscate their mobile phones, change the wifi password, make them do household chores/washing up etc.
They have to learn accountability

All ready for this Bob. If the kids annoy me and are naughty I can pause their wifi just for them and the wife and I are unaffected

Can pause each kid separately aswell as to not punish them all

After a bit over 2 years and about 4000 capsules my Nespresso machine is giving up the ghost, it wont dispense a full cup anymore and descaling it didn't work so its clearly blocked/worn out, so I unplugged it this morning pending attempting some major diy surgery on it... but its out of commission now
:confused:
The heartening thing about this is that you had a go at repairing it.
Too many (young) people would have just binned it without a second thought.

When the entire top end of the coaching staff at your club is about to be assett stripped by England to dig the RFU out of a hole. These being the same coaching staff who have finally got the Tigers back on track after years of massive underperformance and failure. That said, you cannot help but wish good things for Sir Kev and the increase in profile associated with a move to England could massively boost is charity fund raising from already astronomic levels.

Happy for England (and Saints!!) if this does happen...looks likely.

Suppose Saints need all the help then can get to beat us:D:D:D:D

Just get hacked off that we lose early 2/3rds of our first team for the Autumn internationals and now we look like losing all of our top level coaches.

If it is kids and they are caught, the parents should pay for the repairs
That sounds simple etc. But it is grossly unfair and wrong.
I have known ( in a professional capacity) decent parents, who any reasonable child would have known were desirable parents, at their wits end because their child decided to be a scrote and was one.
Imagine you were that parent. Nothing you are now allowed to do is going to influence the intelligent thug. He has worked out that all the cajoling, appeasing , modern pat a cake “remedies “ are what he can ignore. And his behaviour will be according to his whim.
Hence we’ve got these individuals - who need drastic action taken against them.
But don’t hold your breath!

OK , yes there are lousy parents out there as bad if not worse than their lousy kids.
But it is too easy to make then generalisation you made.

Seriously, give me Hermes/Evri any day of the week.
Theyre just useless.
Got email confirmation yesterday of a parcel coming today
This morning had email confirmation of delivery.
Tried to track the parcel and it wanted me to download the App
After many minutes of faffing around trying to get the info I gave up....
An hour later I got an email saying delivery would be tomorrow - not that much of a pain but annoying nonetheless
10 minutes ago I get an email saying the parcel has been delivered.
What? No knock or ring..I've been in.
Look outside and the parcel is just left in the middle of the drive.........
An absolute shower of rat poo.........

I don't agree.
As a parent, you are responsible for the behaviour of your children, nobody else.
Just one last input on this.😀

You sure?

Come on, the children are responsible. Your thinking gives the scrote child all the excuse he needs… and uses!

There have been some awful things done by “children “….I’m sure you can recall some, as can everyone. Are you blaming parents for that.?

I have known 14 yr old men, and 21 yr old children. Believe me, your generalisation is wrong.

Mrs D again.

30 mins ago she asked my opinion on moving some wardrobes and making the box room into more of an office. i said that's a good idea.

she's just asked me again what i thought and followed it up with "it doesn't have to be done right now"

She's now moving a chest of drawers to make way for the double wardrobe.

Guess who'll be moving wardrobes later

They've changed a setting on the system I use for work - basically taken a function away that I need to use now. When I ask what's going on, it's because some people were using it wrong. So rather than teach people they just take it away from everybody and now I have to suffer as a result of others' incompetence.
