Useless accountants trying to run an engineering department. You stick with pushing numbers round and battering people to bankruptcy while engineering keeps the world going!

my gripe for today is because of Siii... Ron, how dare you contact me just after five in the evening when I'm going out for a romantic meal with my wife and how dare you tell me that I have a space on a trackday tomorrow for very little money. How dare you make me loose concentration on my meal and my lovely wife and have to contact my boss to beg for a day off (which he's given at the cost of a pint next friday, more bleeding expense) it's just not on Ron... Just not on...

pretty sure it is, unless indicating would create a danger, such as making someone turning out of a junction believe you meant to turn into it.

People who ignore "out of office" replies on company email then whine like fecking bitches to your boss that you haven't replied to them.

Whilst I'm on holiday in Dorset.

Where they don't have interwebs yet.

Somebody said it before but, people who operate 2 tons of metal while looking at a tiny screen in their lap instead of their surroundings.

You have holidays? do you deserve one? have you made your target?

"I pay your wages" about time you harassed some real criminals instead of griping about people expecting you to do your job!

Anyway, if no 20th century communication in Dorset, htf did you post your gripe. Or did you only find out about the whining when you got back. hope the boss put them right.

Todays gripe.

E mail overload, just logged in and 200 mails since last night. 80% delete on sight. The rest, just keeping me in the loop type from the rest of the world to cover their arses. Nothing that actually requires my attention.

You'd be a lot more annoyed if you didn't notice the parked car, and are just overtaking the driver when they pull out, knocking you off your bike.
This could all have been avoided if they did the thing you hate...

I swear this gripe is actually the dislike of drivers being considerate, looking in their mirrors, giving advance warning of what they're about to do and just generally driving properly...?

I'll assume you drive a BMW :P
