Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Mine today is people taking their bikes on rush hour trains. It's got to ridiculous levels. They shove past you on the staircases banging you with handlebars and pedals then you have to squeeze round grubby muddy bikes in the train doorways to try and get a seat on an already crowded carriage. Folding bikes take up loads of space anyway but no one enforces the non-folding bikes in rush hour rules so people bring them on too. And because there's no charge for bikes dozens of people bring them on each carriage now. I might start trying to bring the GS on the 7.49.

The Android update that's currently draining the battery on my S3. Feckin thing goes from 100% down to a pittance in about eight hours, even with nothing running, WiFi off, GPS off, etc.

I'm in the process of reverting it to an older version of Android that worked just fine. Problem is, I think I've bricked the phone....

Ah, modern stuff. I was a contract Cobol analyst/programmer before IR34. Work dried up for Cobol after 2003. Subsequently was an insurance claims handler, now retired. Currently living just to the south of Norwich.
