    Screenshots sent as images pasted into a Word file is the one I'd bring hanging back for.

    I was doing a job reference form for someone the other day and (lacking a billion pound Adobe subscription to start editing the PDF) asked if they could send it in Word. They replied "If you wouldn't mind printing it out and filling it in with blue pen, then scanning and sending back". Public sector so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.

    Why blue pen?

    EDIT: And aren't most scanners black and white anyway?

    I don't know in this case, but usually it's something to do with proving it's original or some boring shit like that (as every colour pen comes up black on photocopies).

    But it's a scan they are receiving anyway? How is a scan of an original any different to a photocopy of an original?

    I appreciate you are not the one making the rules here, this has just fucked me up.

    You can colour scan (or at least I fucking hope you can, in advance of doing this), so I guess they want the bluey goodness in any form. Fuck, who knows, maybe they just get turned on by blue handwriting.

    The times I've come across such a demand before was from the subcontinent, so it could be some weird admin hangover they have.

    Had to use text boxes and place them in the right place for five years of address history. The most annoying thing is that the website had already asked me to fill this in on a normal web form just before then gave me the fucking stupid pdf to do the exact same thing on.

    They had the foresight to tell me that I couldn't correct a mistake (had to start a new one all over again if you did) but not that I had to use blue. Twats.

    Does anyone use a scanner these days [instead of just a scan app type thing on a phone]? I guess if you were having to feed pages and pages of documents through one maybe.

    My students sometimes use those scan apps and they always look like complete garbage, so I recommend not using those.

    Probably more reflective of your students than the scan apps. I use docuscan or somesuch quite often and it has always been fine.

    We have an Adobe licence at work, I felt like a fucking wizard editting some project proposal thing the other day. I mean, tbf, it was something done in word then exported to pdf and the only reason I had to do it that way was cus my boss lost the original down the back of the sofa that is SharePoint but it was still pretty mind-blowing stuff.

    I often use the scan app in Notes and find that decent, unless the page is glossy and then the glare can often obstruct what's written.

    Why does everyone think everyone else cares/knows about politics? Or am I in the minority for thinking (but not bothering to say because, you know, I don’t care) ‘what do you mean?’ when someone blamed Boris Johnson for Microsoft Teams being slow.

    I don’t presume everyone watches Love Island and is worried about Paige, or knows that Perisic is listed as a 5.5 Defender on fantasy premier league. These are my interests and those are yours.

    Office politics chat is absolutely horrendous. Maybe it's just me being a superior cunt as usual, but jesus christ. 'None of the big names have resigned, av they? Av they?' 'He's not gonna go, that's what they're saying.' 'That Rishi and that other Asian, he's gone and all.'

    Either follow it properly and have some knowledge, or shut the fuck up.

    I mean it doesn’t impact my life but I still hope they send someone in targeting only her. And I was planning on running with 5 premium defenders anyway so this just means I don’t have to spend an extra 0.5 on Dias or someone.

    Oh no sorry for inadvertently turning this into a politics thread. Back to the general election thread please.

    Most discourse (about anything) is shit, because generally there is some party that knows/cares more, or if not then everyone just wants to show off their opinions. That's why everything needs to be shrouded in six layers of irony/faux apathy.

    I'm toying with a renegade United heavy midfield of Donny, Rashford and Elanga [alongside more reliable operators/with the intention of not necessarily playing them]. Will have to see how they go in pre-season. All feels very condensed this year. 3 weeks to the charity shield and no one's played a pre-season game yet.

    The politics talk at my work is the previously mentioned eater going on about 'leftards', and boomers with two houses saying things like 'How am I wealthy?' when I moan about pensioner handouts.

    Guy who was supposed to bartend with me tomorrow is, I think, dead. Ambulance turned up 90 minutes after he collapsed with some lung/heart issue.

    Got stuck at roadworks for FORTY MINUTES this morning purely because the people on the other side of the road were too stupid to realise that pulling into the single lane when their light was green when there was traffic their side meant that they were blocking it for us when our light went green.

    Got the email telling me the Virgin Media contract was due up in September and that as such our introductory offers all finish. Our bill will then rise from the £89 a month(all channels, extra box, was their top internet package, virgin mobile SIM with unlimited everything and even came with a TV) we're paying to £149. Fuck. That.

    Got in touch today to start the ball rolling on the give me a fucking discount process. Unfortunately for me, the likes of BT et al do not provide their top fibre package in my area, so it's Virgin internet or relatively shit internet. What's fucking me off more is that they want me to gut out almost everything on my package, whilst still paying barely anything less. However online they're offering a package way better than the one I'd be moving to for a fair bit less too.

    You should switch your mobile to O2 and take advantage of the Volt deal, where they bump your VM broadband up a level (eg I pay for M250 but get M350 or whatever the numbers are) and double your mobile data (eg I pay £8 for 20GB but get 40GB). Should save you some money somewhere, I reckon.

    Not sure if it would work there but a couple of years back when our rates went up with Comcast we tried the "We are leaving game" and it didnt work. I ended up signing up as me rather than the missus and getting the newcomer pricing.

    I imagine we will flip back when it goes up for me. Which is apparently in December.

    Tbf now I've got to the part of the song and dance where I've mentioned I'll just leave, they have started to pull decent offers out.

    Latest one was £95 per month to actually up the internet to a 1gb connection and move the SIM to an O2 one on unlimited everything with 5G. Everything else would stay the same.

    I reckon that's not bad at all but the Mrs is in full blown PANIC MODE over the impending energy cost rises and so wants the cost of the package cut.

    EDIT: @Danny they have a 30 day cool off period now. It's on the household not the name of the person on the contract.

    Virgins site reckons you need 90 days after your contract ends before you become new customer eligible. I've known people do it after 30, but obviously that wont be a guarantee.

    It's the first time in about a year buying something off Amazon, and does it only give you a couple of its favoured results for searches now? How do you get the full list of everything to come up? It's unusable otherwise.

    I rang up yesterday to say I needed them to at least match my current bill or I'd be going. Woman I spoke to not only couldn't do that, but insisted she couldn't even do the £95/m I was quoted above and the best she could do it for was £105/m(also when they make you an offer their spiel always ends with "sounds good, right?"). I said sorry but that's not good enough, please accept this as my notice of cancellation.

    Got a phone call from them to me today. The guy on the phone said look we'd rather not lose you and I'm sure you don't want the hassle of swapping to another ISP, what can I do? After some back and forth I'll be getting their top package for £80 a month.
