Don't worry about it, it sounds like they're a waste of your time!

Been meaning to go to that place for ages, I think I'll give it a miss now. :P

Apparently these weren't actually a thing before. I've been saying that I was gonna fit them all over my house when I get one for the last several years. I've been sitting on a golden ticket for ages, and never realised it was worth anything. *cry*

They've been around years but I think they keep getting pulled for safety failures.

That makes me feel a bit better. tbh, I'd probably have waited until the USB 3.1 standard is finalized and becomes widely adopted anyway. That way I can plug my cables in on the first attempt, instead of the second, or more annoyingly, the third.

It's frustrating. These are also the clients that sent my photo to the Mail without asking, so they're getting charged for that.
Doubt I'll get any more work from them after that but they're so unreliable that I'm not sure I want to.

Yeah, I wouldn't do business with them again. They're taking the piss.

WPMOT: How un-bothered people are about their dogs barking around here. We've got a dog who only barks if there's a damn good reason for it, but at the moment we've also got the next door neighbour's dogs in the garden (fuck knows why, she's since come back home) and if so much as a leaf blows past the fence they're yapping at it, which in turn sets off the other dogs in the neighbourhood (half of which often bark into the night anyway as they're kept outside for so long they're barking out of boredom).

Woke up very tired and with a splitting headache.

I think it's dehydration (I went training last night) so when my stomach settles I'll drink a lot of water. Hopefully it'll cure it.

Lazy people. You're getting paid for it, so do your damn job and do it right.

Posting in here too much recently but whatever. Builders have somehow managed to scratch our new hob, put a rather large chip in it too. With the way it is there's no way they could have done it without noticing. Fuckers.
Mum's pretty upset about it all. Particularly how bloody cowardly they are.

Aren't all builders cowboys? We had a bathroom fitted about 4 years ago and they put a none water resistant light above the shower. We wouldn't have known either, but my mum spotted a box with an unused light in it, just so happened to be the water resistant one. So yeah I am rather happy to be alive right now.
