The simple art lost of when opening a door and checking if someone is behind you to hold it open for them, totally lost on the younger generation, it’s just fucking rude and bordering on total retardedness!! Fucking knuckle dragging imbeciles

The TV guide.
When you set to record with a series link you can't access/get the current episodes info/description.🙄

Forgetting to put the cap back on after you've topped the oil up then done about 50-60 miles before you find out .
Sooo messy.

Sensationalist bullshit like this that is so lacking in any awareness it’s frightening.

People who don't have their house/flat number on their property or it's really hard to see.

Who are you trying to hide from?

Is that about the Diana thing? Fucking hell Telegraph
The guardian and the Mirror have been all over it as well - often using the classic “too ill to talk” it’s a bizarre set of events if people were paid to fake bank accounts and falsify bizarre e mails

And other than just polite, it’s actually quite a sensible thing to do today to stop someone else having to touch the door handle!

Along the same lines, when you open the door for someone and they don’t say thanks. Really pisses me off, I just say you’re welcome really loud and make it dead awkward

Same as letting people through in traffic.

I forgot my daughter was in the back once and ended up calling somebody some names on a summers day with windows open for not saying thanks.

Yeah, but Hermes are utter shit, and lose parcels far more than the other ones.
To be honest I haven't had an issue with loss, had a couple of breakages though.

Still, a lot cheaper than Royal Mail and don't need to piss about going to a Post Office between 9 and 5. Also quicker delivery times and fully tracked :)

I was wary of using them over Royal Mail so started split testing but found the process easier, cheaper and quicker.

Yep....by far the worst of a really shit bunch. Its quite surprising that several large retailers such as John Lewis still use them.

I ship spare parts around quite frequently as part of my business. I've had & subsequently closed business accounts with most of them over the years.

Currently use TNT (now part of FedEx) for UK stuff & UPS for international deliveries.

But for complete unreliability, rough handling & ridiculously timed delivery attempts.....you cant beat Hermes.(n)

Ah OK....If you're gonna compare Hermes with Royal Mail then you're looking at two very similar smelly piles of shit.

Exactly!

If it was high value items / large items then I'd be looking at other places. I wouldn't ship a TV with either of them.

for a £7 mug, people won't pay the same again for delivery!

Have to say, if I know something's delivered by Hermes, I'll avoid ordering it - had that many issues with them.

tbf the current driver around here is pretty good, so he'd better not leave, or get sick with Covid!

That's what Premium Delivery options are for ;) If people want to pay more for delivery they can, if they want it cheap they get Hermes.

I would love to catch one of my mates doing that for a selfie. They would be terrorised for the months for it.

I still remember when we found out one was putting oil on to take selfies of his body, sent them to everybody in his phone book. Nowadays it's fashionable and groups of lads get together and do it. What the fuck has happened to the world.

People who can't put a sentence together when replying on a forum, and react with a short single comment such as though they hold the higher ground. Annoying.
