I often do that, though without the hat, gloves or scarf. I'm really uncomfortable being too warm, and given that most shops have their heating systems turned to "char" at the first hint of cold weather, if I find myself having to go to a shop, I'd rather bit a bit cold on the way and comfortable while there, than the other way around.

That doesn't annoy me as much as those fking weirdo men you see wearing a pair of shorts with black tights under them.

They are they type that wear 'shorts all the time' but when the weather gets too cold for shorts like it is right now, they don't just put a pair of trousers on like a sane person, but they put some odd looking black tights on then their sodding shorts over the top.

Can anyone explain what the hell that is all about?

One of the guys who works in the building opposite me is currently dressed like that every day without fail. Hoodie, Gilet/Bodywarmer, shorts, some women's tights and a pair of trainers.

If you are cold then PUT SOME fkING TROUSERS ON.

If your window cleaner is operating a Limited Company then of course they are a company director. As is anyone for whom it makes sense to operate through one. Doesn't make them a self-important knob.
I think slimjim was suggesting that 'all knobs are company directors' rather than 'all company directors are knobs'.

Knobs being a sub set of company directors (type thing)....

I'm sure there is some sort of Venn Diagram that can be drawn on it. Bonus points if it's knob-shaped (although you'd need a third data category, of course). smile

Nope. There's nothing wrong with being a company director. Telling everyone that you're a company director, when it is completely irrelevant to the conversation, is what makes you a knob.

Had to go find the nom nom nom thingy. For added torture, there's a 10 hour loop of this somewhere on utube.

Setting up passwords for new e-accounts.

  • Website - Please enter a password
  • Me - type
  • Your password must contain at least one special letter - typically in red font with a red outline around the enter password field
  • Me - type
  • Your password must contain at least one capital letter
  • Me - type
  • Your password must contain at least one numeric
  • Me - mad I'll go elsewhere
Why the fk can't these idiots tell you what your password needs at the bloody start of the process?

Totally with you there but equally... It's typically things like web forums etc and who the fk *cares* if it's a super secure password for those? I mean your bank, sure. Maybe even online shops (although even for those unless they're saving credit card details who cares) but some piss-ant web forum.... which brings me on to one of my annoyances.

Web Forums that force you to register before you can view pictures. Typically I'm only visiting because I'm researching something or other and there is a hint that a picture linked (but locked to non-registered users) would be relevant. So I'm forced to register to join a site that I will never ever visit again. *JUST* for that one bloody picture.

Oh, this is a target rich environment.
Some sites need special characters only some of which are acceptable.
Sites differ as to which are "special".
Some sites don't accept them at all.

So you end up with a different password for that one site or with one key difference.
And in 6 months time you haven't a clue what they were.
Until (and even then not always) you do the forgotten password thing and there are the hints!

Yep, enforcing any password policy at all is fking annoying. By all means have a generic T&Cs explaining it's your fault if it gets hacked, but it's annoying to keep coming up with different versions of he same password I use for anything non sensitive
