I have never had fights like that with my mates & esp with colleagues.
Yes, there's been a few that I don't like, but I steer clear & do my best not to engage.



I find that hard to believe.

There was a thing on TV the other days about power companies, new customers are put on a special cheaper rate, but once you have been with then for a while they switch you to something they call Standard Variable Rate. SVR is usually a much higher rate that you can get elsewhere.
It's worth spending an afternoon looking at domestic outgoings and phoning companies up. It is amazing the amount that can be saved.



Well, that's true but it's contractual.

You sign up for a deal which will (usually) offer cheaper prices but often that comes with a cancellation penalty. I presume that's because they bulk buy ahead and can get their supply for less if they know we'll be with them for 12 months.

When the contract expires you're automatically moved to the SVR which you can cancel without notice, maybe a month.

But there's nothing to stop you from shopping around, thank god for comparison websites, and then calling your company to negotiate another contract.

Generally I find that works with insurance but it's harder with utility or phone companies. They seem to think it's a bother switching, sure there can be some teething problems but the savings are well worth it.

Why? I don't get into screaming matches, not interested. I've cut a few people out of life but the ones remaining are true friends.

Not knowing if I've put a dirty t shirt on, or if this new wax jacket stinks. First time I've worn it. Hoping it's the wax.

Either way I stink.

The fact the government can lose a vote 299-0 because they all abstained on pausing the roll out of universal credit but ineffect it means nothing.

Contempt of people, but I've come to expect that.

I wrote to Dominic Raab, my MP. asking him to support the assisted dying bill.
He replied saying it was a vote of conscience and he would be voting against.
I asked him to listen to the debate with an open mind, otherwise what was the point of the debate.
No reply.

I subsequently discovered he hadn't event turned up to represent me in this life and death decision, no he was too busy having lunch in a neighbouring constituency.

Not even doing something for the people he represents, let alone anything important.

It was the t shirt. I must have taken it off after getting in and chucked it in the wrong place.

Funnily enough the jacket isn't too bad.
