Ordered some things for dh & kiddos birthday in March - still not arrived.
The website has now disappeared, and contacted them on facebook and THEY are calling ME a liar as i have "never ordered anything". £60 basically stolen.

Have you any proof you payed them money? Hopefully the bank can help you get it back?

I just got shouted at in the charity shop for being agest just to asking if they had an email address to contact age uk for assistance. Feel abit upset about it.

How very odd, so all you were asking for was an email address and they accused you of ageism? I would have said it was the other way round by assuming that all older people don't use the internet

I didn't say anything I just let her rant on about "your generation". Was pretty stunned really, she bought another customer into the one sided argument to back her up.

There's just no helping some people, some can be very sensitive about their age. You offered help with the best of intentions so her loss.
Don't let it stop you being kind and helpful though, I'm sure you've helped more than you've inadvertantly offended.

People who complain to you that someone they know has just pulled out of their arrangements with them for Friday in order to go out with someone else.

Then looks surprised when I respond “well, that’s exactly what you did to me last week … so now you know how annoying and rude it is … especially as I was driving you somewhere as a favour” :rolleyes:

“Then expected me to rearrange my week to accommodate you … instead of saying no to the other person”.

Rant over! ;)

Will not be putting myself out so much in future, that’s for sure.

That is very, very rude. And cheeky.

Can I have some honest opinions on something?

Dh invited his brother over tomorrow. This has been planned for a while, I have no issues with this whatsoever.
Today he rushes into the house tells me to get ready to go out as he's arranged to go and see the same brother and some other relatives and he wants us all there. I HATE last minute things like this at the best of times, and today I feel like rubbish. After some back and forth, I tell him I'm not going today, I'll see his brother tomorrow etc.
As he's leaving (in a strop) he tells me it's not just his brother coming tomorrow, but SEVERAL OTHER family members too.

I feel really stressed now, I have no problems with his family but I don't like things changing at the last minute etc. What I'm asking is - is this a valid 'annoyance', or am I just being grumpy?

To me that's valid.

Well, presumably he knows you aren’t keen on having things sprung on you last minute, and as you are not feeling so well, he shouldn’t really take umbrage that you turned down the invitation imo.

He can still go without you and just explain you aren’t feeling that well.

Valid! One person is one thing, but a group of people? I'd be peeved as well.

Flipping ticks. Every time Isla comes back from a walk there are ticks on her, seem really bad this year. Relieved she is the colour she is as at least they show up, would be awful if she was a flatcoat retriever.
