Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

One of the big complaints of the old place was that the moderation was generally all done behind-the-scenes, so when things got deleted there would be no note about it and no warning for other members not to do the same thing. If you enjoy a bit of gossip, you also missed out on all the fun when so...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I used SmartShop for the first time at the Sainsbury's Local at York Station. Having a phone case with a flap made it extremely inconvenient to use the scanning app. Then having to scavenge a bag from a self-service checkout made it feel more like I was doing something illicit, and then bagging up m...

If only you were there, you too would have seen the hottest television gossip you simply can't get elsewhere, such as "newsreader sneezes" and "man appears on TV".

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

What is the little notch I've seen on all my new cards in aid of? Just to help with orientation? Yes, it's an accessibility feature. Incidentally the dots on the card are an accessibility feature as well, I believe it's one dot for debit cards and two for credit. HSBC also mention that the large pr...

Re: Fuel situation in your area

I notice my local petrol station has some plastic covers saying "Sorry, No Petrol / Diesel" (as appropriate), with one of them BP branded despite never being a BP station.

Re: Fuel situation in your area

I saw a rather large queue earlier at a local petrol station, but funnily enough no queue at the (perennially) expensive petrol station that's a good 9 or 10p more per litre than the rest of the local ones.

I like the two photos in that article - one with the new National Express coach, the other with a Stagecoach bus taken circa 15 years ago.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

You find yourself wondering if they're making the fact they've seen things up to get attention. After all, you can't get them to prove otherwise, particularly when they're not giving us any hints of what we can expect to see or when to see it. Considering one of the members involved is the first re...

Re: Masks

Have I just been incredibly lucky that I've not had one single comment about my mask-wearing whilst in public?

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Morrisons receipts are still inexplicably featuring the More Card points balance which became null and void on 9 May 2021 when points ceased to be awarded. It must be an irritating reminder to people who were just shy of hitting the 5k redemption threshold when the axe fell. If anyone was due a vou...
