My pet peeve is when fast food restaurants (and other businesses) give discounts only for people who use their apps.  I don’t think this is fair for people like me who do not own smartphones and have no plans to get one.

Is this not a form of discrimination?  What’s next?  Discounts only for people who use drive-thru or kiosk?  Discounts only for those who pay cash?  Discounts only for those who support their stance on a political issue or voted for their candidate?

  

They should start doing discounts exclusive to people who have listened to at least 1 Beatles song in that day.

One thing that annoys me to no extent is online sellers on eBay/Discogs that carelessly package items allowing them to come damaged and blaming the postage system.  Even Amazon is a culprit.  I can’t remember the last time I got an undamaged item from them.  I feel like it used to not be this bad, but it seems like every other package I’ve received lately has been damaged.

Stupid supermarkets that when you’re doing a home delivery order overestimate on the price of possible substitutions, even when everything marked as in stock, and turn down the order because you ain’t got enough in your account to meet their possible substitutions prices. £40.15 order, to get free delivery, and £46.78 in my account, just for a little leeway. Order through Amazon, and the last time I did it that way (and the first) the guy who did the shop rang to say a substitution was needed, gave me the options, and I kept it at exactly the same price.

My bill was £40.15, and they gave me a possible substitution price of £50.56, which obviously the bank wouldn’t clear. Just stupid when you put that high above the order, and they lose a sale.

Yes, I could have pulled some money out of my PayPal, but that belongs to AG, and I ain’t touching that (me paying for laptop in instalments).

Substitution prices should only be on final checkout so far as I’m concerned, and if you’re gonna use them for initial billing, they shouldn’t be so fecking high.

A walk over M&S later I suppose, for less.

I have a pet peeve about the same subject. At my supermarket there is now a small army of “pickers” filling the online orders. Each carrier they push contains 6 large bins that are too large for the normal carts to pass by. Especially if they are new it takes forever for them to check the list on their iPads to make sure they have the proper size and product. After reading your post, now I realize they are also entering any substitutions into the database. Hopefully soon they will have a separate warehouse to fill those orders. For now, I’ve started going either early or late to avoid them.ahdn_paul_01

That there’s some barsteward on YT who’s operating under the name “Beatles Bible”. Wonder where they nicked that name from. Considering starting to leave comments asking why they’re using the name of one of the longest standing and most respected Beatles websites on the interweb.

Autoplaying videos, such as in a Facebook news feed or on Netflix.  If I wanted the video on my screen to start playing, I would start to play it.  I’m so glad that most sites/apps that do this allow you to disable the feature.

No, that was from 11 July 2022, @Sea Belt. Joe is still trying to get him closed down, but it’s difficult because you can’t trademark a name with Beatles in it.

The date that’s just over ten years old, 17 December 2012, is the date I joined the forum.

  Shit… I’ve watched a few of this channels videos, I didn’t even pay attention to the channel name the videos were just in my recommended. I’ll report the channel though.
