Just had this again, People who bid on items on eBay and win then dont bother to contact you even though you send multiple messages to them so you have to cancel sale after giving it over a week then re advertise it.

I feel I must add to my hates.

I really have an issue with publically displayed maps that are not orientated with North at the top. This is how maps are supposed to be, not rotated to give an alternative view. We learnt how to read a map at school and as we know all maps face North pointing upwards and we use a compass to work out which was we're facing and move the map accordingly.

Sadly this seems to have been forgotten by many local councils, particularly those in London who persist in randomly displaying their maps any way round to suit them.

How about ...
" Up to 50% off"
" Lose up to xxlbs in a week"

Both are meaningless.

'This is my granddads car and has been sat in his garage since 2002. V5 now in my name. last MOT was in 1999'

I had that years ago until a drunk driver hit my parked car outside my house and the next time my insurance was due it went up because of the accident. :evil:

Protected NCD should be classed as fraud, for exactly the reason you point out.

Protected NCD is just that, it "protects" the discount, not the actual base cost of the insurance, and is usually mis-sold (but don't expect a PPI type payout!!)
It always seems so dreadfully unfair when you (me) loses out because somebody damages our car....and claiming for costs going forward is impossible.

One of my petty hates. Toilet rolls the wrong way round......

Heavily modified/mutilated eyebrows. Did you know that you can even enhance eyebrows using a form of tattoo? Ultimately the end product looks ridiculous!

I have a friend who is absolutely gorgeous but her eyebrows, oh dear, please leave them alone.
